Should We Have "Humps" in front of Credit Grocery Stores and Oil Stock Peddlers? BUMPS PROPOSED TO FORCE AVTOISTS TO SLOW DOWN Des Moines, Iowa, Jan. 31. Speeding autoista in Iowa will go up in the air at railroad crossings if a bill introduced in the State Senate today becomes law. It provides for "humps" in highways a short distance each side of the tracks and is for the purpose of making auto mobile drivers approach slowly and thus reduce chance of acci dents. The humps would be of con crete full width of the road way, six inches high and with a 10-inch slant, placed from 50 to iuu feet from the railroad track. Durant Democrat. Great many folks get to liv ing to fast because thev can buy it on time, the deeper they get in debt the faster they live and the faster they live the deeper they get in debt. Why don't you at least try paying cash for your groceries, pay less and pay as you go. JBli aHl W Writing in Durant Daily Democrat Feb. 7th, Mr. W. E. Creath, Pres. and Gen. Mgr. of I the Blue Oil Co., who has just struck oil in Bryan county, ' says "I believe it wise at this time to warn those who do hot know the business to stay out." ' ' Every time we see a derrick going up Tom, Dick and Harry and everybody expects to be come a "coal oil Johnnie" over night, but about all most of 'em ge"t is "Creosote on the , seat of their breeches" setting around on drilling timbers waiting for their "gusher to come in." Same thing is true of "Prune Ped dling," ninety-five per cent of all re tail grocers finally go broke. Take it from "Yours Truly" if you don't know the grocery business you'd better stay out, after a fellow fights "advertising ro-F4-rtc! gioxicio , premium scheme sales men and so-called "specialty men" a few years he comes to the conclusion that quiet (?) meditation and peaceful associa tion with "old Beck" down the long romantic corn rows is not so bad after all.
