I THANKSGIVING DAY
nY L. S. CRITTENDEN
Today we thank the Lord of Heaven
For the many blessings that He's given
'T9 us poor mortals far below Him.
How grand it is that we should know Him
We planted crops, we plowed and hoed (
But God's own rain and sunshine growed f
Our barns are full to running over, t
So praise Him, our Glorious Lover.
We live in a land that's unlike others,
For peace and plenty are our brothers;
So sing, ye bards; your sweetest phrases 1
Uplift, today, in songs of praises!

It seems that this war cannot be run
successfully without constant recourse
to the Bible. [For that matter no other
business can succead without following
the teachings of The Book.
Old1 John Frost has nipped all of the

the ones off the tree, of course.
Oh. those University of Chicago p~ro
fessors! Here comes one who says he
has discovered how to bring back youth
to old age, and says old animals can be'
''brought back to a condition of youth
andl made to pass through the cycle of
life agamn and again." Gosh! wve know
some animals we hope wvon't try it on!
The teeth in Georgia's prtohibition
law~ are not so sharp after all. For the
man who wants a (dram for himself
alone-it is all right. He can get a
gallon of wine, six gallons of Budweiser'
and half a gallon of booze a month. But
he will have to consume it all himsielf,
which will not he much trouble for some
folks wve know. Thet'e's to be no treat
ing your friends unless you take them
ho~me with you, and in most cases that
wvould be (disastrous- to the supply!

HOW TO REDUCE EXPENSES
W HY does a man or woman in
buying an advertised art
icle seldom tell the mer
chant where he or she saw the
advertisement? That they (lid
See it-and read it-is proved by
the purchase they are making
at the time, but the retailer is
left to form his own conclusion
As to what prompted them to
:ome to his store. Newspapers
arge buyers to tell where they
see the advertisements, and they
really should do so. If they
would, the advertiser would
Cnow his advertising was pav
ng him. He naturally then
vould do more advertising, and
ust as naturally, he would sell
nore goods. Selling more goods
ie would be able to sell even
:heaper than he is now doing- t
mnd the result would be that the
)ublic would benefit-and all
ron so little trouble as telling
he business man where his ad
!ertisement was seen. In look
ng over our advertising columns
n this issue, please, when buy
ng, tell the business man you
aw his ad in The Sentinel. 'i'he
