Concerning Price Reductions RtaUtrs are frequently charged with not reducing prices as fast as they should. Thi we believe, is not in accord with the facts. Competition compels the retailer to keep his prices as low as possible, otherwise he loses business. True, some prices stUI hiih. but manufacturers in many lines say they have not been able to effect reductions in the cost of production. In our own case, we have reduced prices just as fast as manufacturers' prices are reduced, regardless of the cost of stock on hand. As a result, most lines are priced quite a little under last year's figures. The follow ing comparison between peak prices and today's on 20 articles of hardware shows a deckled decline.

In a signed com munication to the Memphis Press former Governor M. R. Patterson, candidate for the Democratic Senato rial nomination, expresses his opposi- jtion to the coldiers' bonus bill. in nis communication ne gave two reasons why he should be supported for the nomination, as follows: "First I am the only candidate from Memphis or elsewhere, so far as I know, who opposes the soldier bo nus bill. My position often ex pressed is that every soldier who was wounded, whose health was im paired, or who was in any way in capacitated in any branch of the service, whether overseas or in this country, should be liberally and gen erously aided by the goverpment, and that no soldier is entitled to a bonus who came out of the war sound men tally and physically. "Aside from the tremendous bur den of taxation which such a bonus would impose upon an already over taxed people, it is wrong in princi ple, being the first attempt in all American history to commercialize patriotism. There are thousands of ex-soldiers men who regard a bonus as a reflection upon their ideals and sacrifices, which should not and can not be measured in dollars, and there are thousands more who, when they think seriously of the proposal, will understand that in peace and war the debt is first of all to the country's welfare. "Second I shall direct my appeal to both men and women solely on their intelligence as American citi zens. I have requested no one to sign : petitions on my behalf, and I want : to leave the decision of the voters ab solutely unhampered by pledges of any sort. This course is the only ! fair one to the voters, and the only I one I care to pursue in seeking a great and definite office. His Mother's Song.

Cayce, of Martin, left Wednesday for Memphis, where he will undergo an operation on his hand, caused from a rat bite some time ago. Mr. Cayce was bitten by a rat and poison set up causing an operation on his hand some weeks agb, and returned home thinking he was beyond dan ger, but took very seriously ill two days ago and had to return to the aospital. By waxing the stem, a bunch of grapes can be kept fresh for many weeks. The Palestine government ia plan ning to Irrigate the Jordan valley. Beneath the hot midsummer sun The men had marched all day, And now beside a rippling stream Upon the grass they lay. Tired of games and idle jest As swept the hours along, They cried to one who mued apart, "Come, friend, give us a song." "I fear I cannot please," he said; "The only songs I know Are those my mother U3ed to sing For me long yetrs ago." "Sing one of those," a rough voice cried, "There's none but truemen here; To every mother's son of us A mother's songs are dear." Then rose the singer's voice Amid unwonted calm; "Am I a soldier of the Cross, A follower of the Lamb? And shall I fear to own His cansc?" The very stream was stilled, And hearts that never throbbed with fear, With tender thoughts were filled. Ended the song, the singer said, As to his feet he rose, "Thanks to you all, my friends; good night, God grant us sweet repose." "Sing us one more," the captain begged. The soldier bent his head, Then glancing round, with smiling lips, "You'll join with me," he said. "We'll sing that old familiar air, Sweet as the bugle call, 'All hail the power of Jesus' name! - Let angelo prostrate fall.' " Ah, wondrous was the old tune's spell, As on the soldiers sang; Man after man fell into line, And loud the voices rang. The songs are done, the camp is still, Naught but the stream is heard; But ah! the depths of every soul By those eld hymns are stirred. And up from many a bearded lip In whispers soft and low, Rises the prayer that mother taught Her boy long ago.

In Persia the carpet designs have been handed down from remote ages, Each family keeps its ovn design, no two carpets being alike for fear of the evil eye. The Syrians considered mourning for the dead an effiminate practice, and when they grieved they put on women's clothes as a symbol of weak ness and as a shame to them for lack of manliness.
