Do business, but whatever business
you do, let It bo a cash business.
It will bo noted that tho total in
debtedness was 1,3C9.04, that the
total assets reduced to cash were
?37C.2G, that there was one preferred
creditor whoso bill was $22.50, that
tho net assets to other creditors were
fXCTO, owing to tho fact that Mr. i
Tatum did not tako advantage cf
his legal right of one hundred dol- .
lars oxemptlon. This Is to his credit. I
It should bo further noted that of :
tho net assets, amounting to $333.7(1,
$102.76 went for expenses nnd court
costs. So, If Mr. Tatum had claimed
his right, only J1G1 on the J1.3C9.01
