"Apt alliteration's artful aid" was not neglected when an Akron (O.) member of the American Legion spun the following bonus yarn : "Burt began to bitterly berate the l)uU' about the bonus bill, bewailing the benighted bigotry of the belliger ent birds, badly blocking the bonus by bombastic blusterings and hrable, and branding the busted bucks who hore the brunt of the battle as bad gers and booty-burglars of billions In bonds, believed by big, bald business brow-beaters to belong burled In banks. v "Before our bewildered Burt board id a boat to become a battle-scarred vet beyond the borders of our bright, oeautiful, big country, he became a benedict; and, back from the battles busted and barren of bullion, our be nighted boy hero became beautifully bored because big bibulous bunco men breathlessly built a bunch of back hand lies to bribe him by a bunk promise of a bonus. "But Burt isn't badly brow-beaten oy the bedraggled babble of a bonus. BIythe, buoyant and bubbling, biding his time, Burt, the benedict and bat tle buddy, and Beulah, his bride, be lieve the bully and bumptious Idea that a beneficent bunch of birds will be brought to believe that big battles beat the Boche and busted bucks need bread; and before beaucoup belated years pass a bonus bill to bring the bacon back to- our buddj, Burt Where Brains Don't Count. One of the strangest things In world Is bow difficult It Is for tellectual to change tires on a ear. Dallas News. A whole lot of men in this country get a living without earning it. And lust as many seem to earn it and don't get it. The Holbrook man who is unable to work and smoke at the same time usually smokes. When the Russian Reds released American prisoners on the promise of food we had another example of how easy it is to reach the heart through the stomach. A woman socialist was pelted with pastry in a west ern town. No, that isn't what you call "taking the cake." The average Holbrook wo man doesn't know what she Wants, but it has been our observation that she usual- y gets it. Every session of congress is just like the one before it -in the matter oí free gar den seed. Mountains are said to be slipping on the Pacific coast. Maybe California is moving mountains to keep out the Japs. We hear quite often a boast from a Holbrook man that he has money to burn, but we never see him carry ing out any ashes. ' A hog is about the only thing that doesn't give any thing away when it squeals. Who would have thought they'd live to see the time when a congressman would speak of a billion dollars as carelessly as most of us speak of a five cent cigar. The of tener some Hol brook men fail in a business deal the more addicted they become to the advice-giving habit. When a woman reaches the aere where she is not worth looking at, she is just at the age where she is worth listening to. . Some people like to brag about the number of papers they take, but we like to hear em brag about the number they pay for. One thing that can be said in favor of Holbrook girls who comb their hair so their ears won't show. Our merchants say they are sell ing as mucn soap as tney ever did. Arizona points This Is Such A Small Price To Pay for a car which will be a good investment for years, that a man who has ambition and work to do can scarcely afford to be without its convenience 'and ad vantages.
