Ultimate remedy

Saints and Sodas, Cokes and Smokes, but in the end, it's Ex-Lax.

Louis Antoine Juchereau de St. Denis

He founded Natchitoches in 1714 and his name is all over town, including a funeral home. He's buried there--in the church, not the drug store.

[Actually he's buried under the drug store. - Dave]

Just wondering

Mr. McClung, can I get a Pepsi?

Drugs to Tchotchkes

McClung Drug is now the Hall Tree, an apparel and gift shop.

[With the same 1930s bronze plaque next to the trash can! - Dave]
