We're printing some mighty
fine sale bills this fall. Week be
fore last we got out an order of
bills for a farmer north of town
and they were So nifty that he
couldn't begin to take care of the
crowds that flocked to the sale.
After getting the top price for
every animal, implement and ar
ticle on the bill, Jim, the auction

people just clamored for more.
'he farmer, in hope of driving
them away put up his inotherin

gage for sale. A lifelong friend

was shattered as each tried to
outbid the other. It was finally

who was promptly knocked down

brick that he bought in Chicago
during the World's Fair, He
sold the ruts in the road in front
of his place and then offered to

of the remarkable things about this
