MANY people see the things they desire in their imagination but few attain them, because they do not set about accomplishing their desires in an intelligent manner. ; v Few ambitions to-day are accomplished without a BANK ACCOUNT If you do not possess one, why delay any longer in taking the first step toward success? Old National Bank Union City, Tennessee A report has come back to us that some are saying, that we adulterate our Coca-Cola. As a rule we ignore "knocks." We are too busy to con sider them seriously. But we are reminded of a saying of a famous Tennessean: "Only two animals are known to hiss the goose and the serpent the one on account of its venom, the other of its extreme simplicity." , f We merely wish to state for the benefit of our friends and patrons that if you should hear anyone say that we adulterate our Coca-Cola, he is either the malicious liar the snake, and we haven't time to search the grass for him, or just an innocent prattling fool the goose, and we extend our sympathy to his relatives. Now we do not pretend to know what Coca-Cola is. It may be the nectar, brewed by the gods on Olympia's heights to quench the thirst of the celestial beauty, or it may be the Hycumpuckejude of Blackarkermurackerous, concocted in th jungles of Africa by cross-eyed monkeys, but we do know that whenever a customer calls at our fountain for "Coca-Cola," "Coke" or "Dope," he gefs pUre, genuine, unadulterated Coca Cola, put out by the Coca-Cola Co., of Atlanta.
