Madame Bidamski of Moscow has
invented a lip-stiek-paint that can't
be kissed off, nor does it leave an
imprint on the lucky guy's jaws.
This stuff is selling like hot-cakes
in co-ed colleges and dance halls.
Mr. Sinclair is planning to be
away from home for about 60 days.
Mr. Dohenny and Mr. Fall will not.
accompany him as was expected
about a year ago. Mr. Fall’s health
gets so bad when he approaches a
court house, the doctors think best
for him to stay around home and
look after his oil-farm.
The cost of food at retail de
clined one-tenth of one per cent
during March. That means that
out of every dollar a man made
during that month, the instalment
agent got one cent more than dur
ing the previous month. The
treasury department reports that
there are $4,567,995,000 on deposit
in savings accounts In the United
States. Nearly all of that of
course is being laid aside to make
the "down payment.'’
Uncle Joe went to see the doc
tor the other day about Aunt
Minervy. The doctor asked him
what her symptoms were, and Un
cle Joe said: “Well, she got up
this morning at her regular time,
about 4 o’clock. She woke me
up crawling over me, but I soon
went back to sleep. She cooked
breakfast, milked the cows, cut
enough stove wood to cook din
ner with, done the week’s washing
and hung out the clothes, got the
younguns off to school, worked a
little in the garden, and when she
come in the house to put on the
turnip gTeens, she commenced to
complain about being tired and
worn out. She ain't never done
that before, and I want some med
icine for her. I am kinder cn
easy.’’ What Aunt Minery need
ed was a dose of strychnine for
Uncle Joe, but the doctor sent her
calomel.
Farm Relief is practically upon
us at last, Gloy-Be! We are sure
to get 30 cents for cotton in the
south and pay the west 3 dollars
a bushel for wheat, and our sweet
potatoes will fetch us around 4
dollars for 4 pedes, and we will
get all the oats we want from Mis
souri at 2 dollars a bushel, and
just as soon as we sell our cotton
seed for 75 dollars a ton, we can
have Iowa ship us some corn at 2
dollars and 96 cents per bushel.
Hurrah for that- Farm Board
Hoover is fixing to •appoint.

And consider whether this fel
low was wise or otherwise. When
i friend of ours told us that he
had just burned a hundred dol

must be a millir.naire. 'Well, it 1
is easier to burn them than it is |
to pay them,'’ he said with a
grin.
It doesn't take a hundred dol

The Mexican rebels carry then
wives along with them when they
go to war. That assures them
of plenty lighting experience both
before and after the battles. In
a recent skirmish which lasted 10
hours, 2 men got slightly injured,
and the frying pan was shot out
of a woman's hand. Some war!
I am not an old man, but I can
remember when over 99 per cent
of the stockings bought, by wom
en cost 10 cents, or 3 pairs for a
quarter, and 100 per cent of them
were black. The only time a man
ever saw a pair of those stock
ings after they left the store was
when they were hanging on the
clothes line. Gosh, them long
dresses were a sin and a shame,
and now. after I am at the foot
of the dotage ladder, beauty is
found from the knees down in
stead of from the chin up.
A crack passenger train out in
Alabama jumped the track the oth

were badly shaken up. Folks are
in too big a hurry during this pe

nothing.
we took 2 old hens off yester

though?) Well, that’s what we did.
One of the Buff-Orphington brutes
stepped on 2 of her off-spring be
fore she got limbered up for
scratching, and now she has only
1 to fetch up. The other fowl of
pedigree fame seems to be taking
better care of her 2 biddies. At
the rate I am “raising my own,”
the liver of a half-grown pullet
will cost me between 5 and 4 dol

Chicago was in the same boat.
The bulls Were trying to hedge
their goat. The discount rate
jumped to a new high, and it smelt
like rain in the south. The strad
dlers were mopping their face on
the sly. and looked powerful down
in the mouth. The longs and the
shorts were running around, and
bellowing for the ticker to stop.
But the boll weevils were roosting
all over the ground, getting ready
to eat up the"crop. Prices may
go lower for a day or two, but a
long hold is the thing that will
pay. But there ain't no telling
what the market will do. so plow
on, dear brother, and pray.
The size of a man’s head doesn't
spell anything. I have seen small
men with the big head, and they
were the only folks in the neigh

vacuum within kept alive the
imagination without. Gtve me a
little head and a big bank ac
count. and I'll “fly high.” It
doesn’t take brains to get into so
ciety.
