Concerning Price
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.

Gash Grocery Co
Memphis, Tenn. 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
"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.

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
"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
With tender thoughts were filled.
Ended the song, the singer said,
As to his feet he rose,
"Thanks to you all, my friends; good
God grant us sweet repose."
"Sing us one more," the captain
The soldier bent his head,
Then glancing round, with smiling
"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
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.
