"DIME"LETTERS MEETING DOOM IN THiS SECTION The >; nil of chain let* -rs that ;ii - vanning th. country has hit Muii-hv with all its mighty force, lut tin- buiwaid of the i conic h. ci. >.\i? > ?.o(i the storm, add their nam to th. li>: and conveniently "forget" : o semi the dim. to th. top man. iT..e average person i ceives any. where fr. ni three to lour per day here which is a little bit low for the average ot the country. The method is simple and a press account said the other day that, it dates away back to 1890. Mr. John Q. Citizen receives a letter wii.i five names on it. By the simple exptdiant of sending the top name a dime quarter, dollar, or whatever the letter calls for, he is authorized to put his name at the bott mi of the 1 list and eliminate the fellow that gets the dime because by mathematical analysis t.he top man's name has appeared on 566,560 letters (count 'em) which, at a dime a i short, biings $5,665.60. Of course each person that receives a letter is asked not to break the chain and send out letters to five of his friends. Well, any man, no matter how brilliant he is, figures wasting a dime, five stamps and the time it takes to copy the letters will be well repaid bcause all his friends are as big a fool as he is. Anyway somebody might have got rich off the scheme but not anyone we know of . In fact Walt Mauney holds the lead right now because somebody got a letter the other day and Walt's name was next to the top. Personally none of the dimes we sent out have hit a jack pot as yet. Bean, Tomato Contracts Filled; Seek Okra Acr'ge All local canneTy tomato and bean contracts have been closed for the year, E. R.
