On August 27, one dollar would fall short 8 cents in buying two pounds of butter which would last, say
a little over two days in the average home. On August 26, one dollar would buy four gallons of gasoline which/"" \
would last about fwo hours in the average automobile. On July 15, one dollar would buy two watermelons which
would be served at two meals in the average home as dessert. Today, the dollar will buy four quarts of cylinder
oil which an ordinary car would consume in two days— a Ford.

Tomorrow the dollar will fall short, just the same as it did yesterday and as it will today, about twice
in paying the average working man for one day's labor. Think over the many other things, and see how short- *
lived the dollar is. ' •
