If Your brain Is Not Functioning, Read It Twice!
The dealer. that buys his supplies on a purely price basis will find the "Cat in
the Lembnade" just as surely as the pastor did.

At a Sunday School picnic two boys had lemonade stands-one on either side
of the entrance. The pastor came along and going up to John said, "Well, my
little man, how much do you charge for your lemonade?"
"Five cents a glass," replied John. "And how much 'do you charge?" he ask'
ed, turning to Harry, who ran the competing stand.
"Two cents -a glass," replied. Harry. .The pastor cast a censorious eye upon
John and said to Harry, Ill try a glass of yours, my boy."
As he quaffed the fluid, he smacked his lips and said, "That's good. I'll haves
another glass," and he smiled when he thought he was getting two glasses at
less than John asked for one.
"Tell me, rfiy little man," he said to Harry, "how can you afford to sell your
lemonade for two cents aglass when John is asking five cents?"
"Well, you see, said Harry, John and me's partners, but the CAT fell in my
pail so we thought we'd better sell it first."
You don't have to go to a picnic or drink lemonade or be a minister to find
out that you can't get something for nothing.
When the price is cut there is usually a reason.- You can't always find out
what the reason is by asking, for some salesmen are less confiding than
Harry. But if you are a judge of values, you can usually discover the reason
by making a careful examination of the offering.
It's a strange thing that a man who sees the justice and wisdom of asking a
fair price for the thing he sells, often f ails to see the justice and wifd6n of
paying a fair price for the thing he buys.
The lemonade tasted good to the pastor, only until he learned the reason for
the cut, then any price would ha;'e seemed high.:,

THE MEXICAN BEAN BEETLE
We have heard a great deal about
the cotton boll weevil and the enor
mous damage being done to the cot
ton crop ley this insect, but very little
has been written about the Mexican
Bean Beetle, which feeds upon the
important soiling and green-manur
ing crops used in the farm practice
of the Southern States. The insect
feeds on many table beans and other
legumes, includin gsnap, lima, pinto
and navy beans, soy beans, hyacinth
beans, eowpeas, cultivated beggar
weed, and occasionally on sweet clov
er and alfalfa.
The bean beetle, which is already
established in 36 counties in Georgia,
as well as in 35 counties in Alabama,
34 in Tennessee, 2 in eKntucky, 2in
North Carolina, and :3 in South Caro
lina, will, according to Entomologists
connected with the- U. S. Department
og Agriculture and some of the
Southern States Agricultural Depart
ments, probably be distributed south
ward, and westward to the MAissisippi
river, eastward to the Atlantic Ocean,
and northward to the Michigan and
New York bean areas.
The United States Department of
Agriculture, Bureau of Entomology,
maintains laboratories at Thomasville,
Ga., and Birmingham, Ala., for the
study o fthe pest, but no satisfactory
recommendations for control, other
than changes in cropping, have yet
been worked out, although the liepart
ment has been studying the problem
since the discovery of the pest in Ala
bama in 1920.
