    IF IT AINT ONE THING ITS ANOTHER
Life gets mighty agg^efretting sometimes. All this
week-end we've labored—labored hard, too, but don't let it
get nosed around—and just now, ready to knock off work
for the week we happened to think we'd completely overlook
ed this column!
Result: we'll have to staj
while we write down all we k:
awful bothersome sometimes. It's J
bothersome for us to have to
write this, and it's bothersome for I
you to have to read it. You ARE,
reading it, aren't you?
Had a mighty nice letter the
other day from reader No. 10, Mr.
Gaston S. Foote, of Foote & Co.
Norfolk, Va., whom we (or should
it be who? we dunno) mentioned
in this column the other week. Mr.
Foote said some mighty nice
things and we appreciated it, but
we were sort of disappointed be-

cause he didn't enclose a 10-lb.
package of Franklin sugar in his
letter. You see, he sells Franklin
sugar, among other things, and
we all think it mighty fine. (If
Domino is listening we're Just
fooling.)
Mr. Foote, although living in
Virginia, is a native North Caro
linian.
Speaking of sugar, we remem
ber a boy we worked with in
Greensboro one time who was
forever getting to work about half
an hour late # . Fact is, he just got
there usually about five minutes
before we did. One morning
when we reached work he hadnt
shown up and we were sure he
had been run over by a steam roll
er or sometning "because when
anyone got to work later than we
did it was time to put on hat and
coat and go to lunch.
However, about 30 minutes later
the door opened and this young
man came slowly in. In one hand
he had a bottle of cough medl-
TWF, ftT.KTN TP'ttTTNE. ET KTN. WORTH CAROLINA
cine, and to the other a two-pound
package of lump sugar. Knowing
the boss was looking at him with
fire In his eye, he coughed feebly,
took out a lump of sugar, pour
ed a little of the cough medicine
on it, and put it in his mouth.
Then he explained to the boss
how deathly ill he was.
That was the last lump of su
gar he ate. We ate the rest but
didn't bother about taking the
cough medicine. The medicine
and sugar was just a gag to gain
sympathy and forestall a cussing
for being late. Think maybe
we'll try it here sometime.
Will Holcomb, leading spirit in
the Jonesville Parent-Teacher as
sociation, was invited to attend
the IJoly Week services at the
Elkin Methodist church here the
past week. First he wanted to
know where the church was, then
he asked the price of admission.
When it was explained he could
get in without paying, he asked
if they took up a collection and
when he was told no, he said he
wasn't feeling so good so guess
he wouldn't be able to attend af
ter all.
However, lest one gets the Im
pression Mr. Holocmb doesn't at
tend church In his own thriving
little city, let it be said that he
goes each week, always slipping
into his seat Just after the col
lection plate has been passed. We
shudder to think what would hap
pen should he miscalculate the
time and get there BEFORE col
lection. The church treasury
would probably be a penny rich
er.
And we hope this will be a les
son to him for various and sun
dry remarks made at our expense
while in his store one afternoon
last week.
A certain local man was telling
the other day about a certain per
son who had some nice hens, and
a neighbor who had a rooster that
was right much of a Don Juan.
According to the story, this old
rooster would come sidling over
to the hen-owner's house and,
captivating the silly old hens with
his charm, would lure then back
to the rooster's own stamping
grounds. The neighbor, it was said
would then put the hens in a coop
and for several days after that
she and her family would dine
sumptuously on baked hen.
Then one day the owner of the
hens happened to sorta buy him
self a game rooster, which he
turned out with his hens. The
next day the neighbor's rooster
came prancing over with evil in
his heart to lure away more hens.
Hardly had he entered thr yard
than "pow!" and the game roost
er had nailed him through the
head with both spurs!
And that was the end of the
wicked rooster . , . and you'd be
surprised who owned the game
rooster. And that's one way of
filling space. So what!
Next week we'll give you the
story of the Three Bears.
It's a sight how they work en
forcing the hour-parking law
around here. One day last week
we bet Raymond Pelts used up
three sticks of chalk marking on
our (front tire, all in the space of
several hours.
Got so finally that we had to
get an eraser and go out and rub
off what he'd written.
We understand there's to be an
other spasmodic attempt at en
forcement of this ordinance next
Friday afternoon at 3:30 o'clock.
You're invited.
Local merchants might have
done better business if they'd ad
vertised Easter snow suits . . . cold
as it was.
