Title

False Friends with Fair Faces

Description

Cartoon from the 1916 NARD Peoples Almanac presented with the compliments of J. B. Dickey, M.D. Druggist, Iroquois,South Dakota. "This picture shows, in a graphic manner, the false friends with fair faces, that are parading before the public as baby medicines and beauty preparations. Unless a medicine is known to be harmless and pure, it should never be given to a baby; for no matter how little morphine or opium it may contain, it will do the baby a great and permanent injury. The fake toilet and beauty preparations, so prominently advertised in the papers by others than druggists, are, as a rule, made to sell only. In buying medicine it is always best to consult your druggist first to find out whether he will recommend it."
