Served Quickly
Gorgas' Penn-Harris drug store has adopted
a progressive method of serving soda water.
The idea is new in Harrisburg, but has been
tried out in a number of stores in other cities,
where the advantages have been appreciated
very much by people who wish to be served
promptly. There are no stools, chairs or tables
about the fountain this avoids congestion.
Patrons are served promptly and no one is
kept waiting. The new system is in effect at
the Penn-Harris drug store exclusively in
| Harrisburg and -is growing in popularity.
