During his boc stay on earth his time is spent I in one continuous round of con traries and misunderstandings. be In infancy, he is an angel; in ev( his boyhood, he is devel; in his hiL manhood, he is everything from 0 a lizard up. If he raises a fam- lec ily, he is a chump; if he raises a yor check he is a crook, and then the law gets after him. If he is a a poor man, he is a bad mana- Ge ger and has no sense. If he is M rich, he is dishonest but consid ered smart. If he is in politics, Som he is a grafter. If he is out of 3'ec politics, you can't place him and the he is an undesirable citzen. If t Sor. he goes to church, he is a hypo- to crite, and if he stays away from the church, he is a sinner. If he sal donates to foreign missions, he sl does it for show; if he doesn't o qut he is a "tight wad.

Get Busy Now On Plans For Marketing The Corn Crop ( While it is unlikely that the South as a whole would this year produce much more corn than will be consumed in the South, there are certainly going ( to be many sections where there will be a large surplus for' sale.
