EAKLE & YOUNG, Prescription Pharmacists, Analytical Chemists. This firm comprises in its membership Messrs Homer W. Eakle, P. D., and Howard E. Young, P. D. They are natives of the City of Hagerstown, and are young business men of most excellent standing. They completed the full course at the Philadelphia College of Pharmacy, and graduated with high honors in 1909. They have been eminently successful since starting the above business, and have much of the fine trade of the City. Their store is conducted according to modern ideas, and is fully abreast with the times. The store contains the full line of everything usually carried by strictly high-class Druggists. Prescription work is of course, a specialty. At the Soda Fountain all the delightful drinks of the season are served. Messrs. Eakle & Young are popular men, and stand high in business and social circles.

J. & H. GROVE, Tailors, hatters and furnishers. This is one of the highly prosperous stores of Hagerstown, and was established in April, 1910. It is located at No. 25 South Potomac Street, and no well-dressed or up-to-date gentleman of this community can say that the house of J. & H. Grove does not meet their full requirement as to high-class dress. The firm makes a specialty of the high-class trade, and carries a very select line of goods, including the very latest hats, neck-wear, shirts, collars, under-wear, hosiery, suit cases, trunks, etc. High-grade tailoring is a specialty, and this department is in charge of one of the most skilled tailors in this section of the country in the person of Mr. H. Grove, who has had a vast experience. The Messrs. Grove are favorably known throughout the City, and are gentlemen of most excellent standing.

DIX CAFE, No. 20 North Potomac Street. This is one of the most famous Cafes in Hagerstown, and has been in existence for about seven years. It is finely appointed, and it is a real genuine pleasure to drink at the bar or partake of one of the delightful lunches for which the Cafe is famous. The bar is stocked with the richest and rarest of wines, liquors, beers and cigars. Polite and accommodating bartenders are in charge, and guests receive most cordial treatment. Mr. Richard Hartle is the proprietor, he is a gentleman of fine character, and is favorably known throughout the community for his many fine business and social qualities. His personality has done much to make the business a success. Purity is his watchword, and nothing is ever allowed in his place that is not absolutely pure. No wine, liquor or food article is too pure or costly for his patrons.
