There arc a number of men in
jutt such conditions in Dunn today.
I Low cotton prices and the great bos ι
I jets depression hat played havoc with
Ioar wealth, our credit, our worldly
I pc.'mrssions. Money It not denivd to
be tight and almost unobtainable, and
who of oa ta not in debt and unable

gett anywhere, and the grumbler and
growler hu a hard, hard road,
f After all, th* extent of our bank
loll is only material, and happlneas
coming from our worldly wealth a
only material happioeta. Franklin K.
Lane, one of th· gt«alaet men the
country has produced in rccant years
died a few days ago and left an «»

Here's why CAMELS are
the quality cigarette
BECAUSE we put the utmost quality into thia
one brand. Camels are as good as it's pos
sible for skill, money and lifelong knowledge of
fine tobaccos to make a cigarette.
Nothing is too good for Camels. And bear this
in mind) Everything is done to make Camels the
best cigarette it's possible to buy. Nothing is done
rimply for show.
Take the Camel package for instance. It's the
most perfect packing science can devise to pro
tect cigarettes and keep them fresh. Heavy paper
—secure foil wrapping—revenue stamp to seal
the fold and make the package air-tight But
there's nothing flashy about it. You'll find no
extra wrappers. No frills or furbelows.
Such things do not improve the smoke any more
than premiums or coupons. And remember—you
must pay their extra cost or get lowered quality.
If you want the smoothest, mellowest, mildest
cigarette you can imagine—and one entirely free
from cigaretty after us te,
It*· Camels for yon.
Price* That Please - Results That Encourage
No matter what the farmer may desire, if it is in the
farm machinery or implement line we can supply it.
Our commercial connections enable us to secure those
tplendid inventions and grades of implements, and - ma
chinery that literacy "put money into your pocket" at a
material reduction in time, labor and operating expense.
We can not toll you the whole «tory in this ad, but we
will be glad to demonstrate it face to face with you.
