SAD FOR LEGISLATORS.
“Some ancient Greek republic, and
we think it was the Locriars, Lut if
makes no difference, had a law like
this,” says an' editorial in The Farm
“Every senator or representative
or whatever they called their law
makers, who introduced any kind of
a bill into- the legislature had to do
it with a rone around his neck. In
case the bill passed, all right; but if j
it failed, they took the unlucky states- !
man out and hung him.
“As the time approaches for Con- j
gross and State legislatures to meet ;
and the rank and file of- our citizens
look forward with dread to the re
newed operation of the law-factories,
we throw out the general suggestion
! that the Locrians maybe had a grasp
on a real idea.”
. WHAT SMILES CAN DO.
A smile is quite a funny thing;
It wrinkles up your face,
[ And when its gone you never find
It’s secret hiding place.

I He smiles at someone since you smfied
f And then that one smiles back;
I And that one smiles in truth

-Now, since a smile can do great good
By cheering hearts of care,
nets smile and smile and not forget
J. nat smiles go everywhere!

child and with her happy and cheerful
disposition she carried a ray of sun
shine and gladness into the lives of
all around her.
She was laid to rest in the ceme
tery of Gulf Baptist church and the
little grave was covered with many
beautiful flowers, the service being
conducted by Rev. C. L. Wicker.
A loved one has been plucked from
our midst but we have one sweet
thought that a beautiful young life
went the entire race without a stop. This
and every other important race this year
was won on Firestone Gum-Dipped
Cords and Steam-Welded Tubes. Such
performance gives you conclusive proof
of their strength and durability.
Not only do race drivers use Firestone
Tires as protection to their lives and the
surest way to victory, but the largest
tire buyers in the world insist on and
buy Firestone Tires for economy and
service. These buyers include the leading
car manufacturers, the biggest commer
cial car operators and the taxicab and
motorbus operators. 57,639,714 tire
miles were sold to taxicab and motorbus
operators in the month of August.
Think this over. You cannot afford
to accept anything less than Firestone
service and economy. You can buy this
service and economy from any of the
dealers listed below.
