COLMMTTING A DOLLAH
Junior, a Kansas City small boy,
was obliged to lend his dad a dol
lar a short time ago for carfare, the
dollar being the smallest coin Junior
had In his bank. Since that time he
has politely but frequently approach
ed his fathor for payment of the
loan, but never when he happened to
have a dollar. The other morning
Junior put the case this way: "Say,
dad, next time you're down town by
the bank, and the door's open, won't
you go in and get that dollar for
me." That appeal did the business.

Whose Who At Your House.
A SIGN THAT NEVERIFAILS
Gentle reader, in the beginning
I want it distinctly understood
that "Yours Truly" is no philos
opher. I don't claim, nor never
did claim to be anything more
than a common prune peddler,
and a very common one at that.
But I do think I have just as
much right to. my opinions as
unybody, philosopher or what
not. However the line of thought
within the confines of this
buck-shot border can be easily,
distinguished from the great
philosophers in this respect:
The philosopher said "tell me
what you eat and I'll tell you
what you are," still another has
said "toll me what you read and
I'll tell you what you are," while
I say; "tell me who winds the clock and puts the cat out and I'll tell you whose boss at
Gentle reader, should any doubt the truth of this statement thoy need only to
make observation in their own households to prove the fact. Or ask any. friend or
neighbor who has been trotting in double harness for any length of -time, nsk them
"who winds the clock and puts the cat out at your house." From the answer given you
can tell absolutely without the slightest question of doubt who wears the pants, so
to speak, for that family.
This, in a way, reminds "Yours Truly" of our business experience; for years
smooth torgtied, ?f-called specialty salesmen have been loading grocery stores with
all kinds of unknown, untried, off-brand, inferior merchandise on the plea "they
were just as good" and "showed a greater profit."
"Yours truly" don't claim to know much about merchandising but I believe I
know what folks in our own home county buy about as well as any little "tight
breeches" dude from Kansas City. Long ago I served notice on all specialty sales
men that; "1 wind the clock and put the cat out at our store."
That's why, gentle reader, our stock is always fresh, new, clean, merchandise
that you are familiar with, and above all you have the satisfaction of getting what
you want without having to argue with some fresh clerk who wants to sell you some
thing just as good. Call around, trade with the grocer who considers no transaction
closed until the goods are used and purchaser absolutely satisfied. Trade with the
grocer "who cares."
W. E. STRICKLAND
P. s. A Parrot can say; "just as good" but he don't know what he's talking about.
