Much opposition has developed here in the past few days to the order made by the mayor and board of alder men authorUIng an extension of the oerL,0!:?lM U!PU! ,he " 'rum l" present limits of half mile to one.milo snunre. Citizens living" just outside of the present town limits are preparing to fight the proioeed extension to the limit, and have already started a peti tion to raise funds to employ attorneys to defend them against ths action of the city authorities. The city authorities proposed the ex tension on account of the encroach ment being made by outlying districts an the attendance at (he Crystal Springs high school.

The Humble Penny Is Now a Considerable Proposition The Mr. Bowers Stores, Inc., did not INVENT the penny, but they did PUT IT ON THE MAP in Memphis. Eighteen years ago it was seldom used in making change. Today the raising of carfare ONE CENT has caused a spirited fight between the street car company and the Memphis public. The "penny's worth" has become established. For eighteen years the Bowers Stores have been saving the Memphis public MILLIONS OF DOLLARS by saving them a few pennies on small purchases and preventing waste by STRETCHING THEIR DOL LARS. Just one penny added to every dollar's worth sold by the Bow ers Stores would amount to OVER TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS extra profit in a year. The Bowers policy instead is to GIVE ALL they can for what they get, instead of GETTING ALL they can for what they give. If just ONE CENT more per can were charged for every can of fruits and vegetables sold IN ONE MONTH, the total difference would amount to many THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS in added profits. The Bowers policy of selling ANY AMOUNT from a penny up is both unique and original. It is a wholesome contrast to a policy of not breaking packages and not "SPLITTING A NICKEL," which makes you take more than you want. The Bowers plan SAVES YOU MONEY, while the place that "puts up packages" and requires you to take the quantities they provide, rather thas what you need, is PROMOTING WASTE. A great amount of advertising was required to induce the Memphis public to consider and APPRECIATE THE PENNY. The idea, however, did take hold and that is one of the reasons why the Bowers Stores are known as the "TEMPLES OF ECONOMY." 1 7& A Indications point to a great shortage and higher prices.
