't hings I'd Like To Know.
1 1 can’t understand how it Is
I that we have thousands of miles of
jtiood roads, and hundreds of fine
i school houses, and plenty money for
! all public demands—while our farms
j are being sold for taxes, our farm
! dwellings and tenant houses are rot
jting down and our farmers are able
j to.make only a bare (very buret liv
, 2. I can’t understand how so
i many of us have to hunt an hour
or more for a place to park our cars
—while bread-lines are just around i
the corner—and hundreds of wom
en and little children in our com
munity are half fed and tliree
j fourths starved—and the officers of
| the law can catch only the poor
man drinking or peddling booze.
3. I can’t understand why the
[land banks and the Insurance com
ipanies continue to fore-close mort
gages on real estate that they can’t
or won’t utilize after they come Into
possession of it—while there Is a
possibility that the man who owns
it would at least pay a fair rental
for it and mebbe something on the
principle when the Republicans get
out of office and the Democrats are
given a chance to bust up the big
monopolies and give the working
men u probable prospect.
4 I can't understand why a cot
ton mill hand earns only $1.50 a day
while his brother gets $1.50 per hour
[ loc doing a little job of plastering
that very little intelligence and only
a smattering of experience arc re
quired, nor can I understand why a
board of directors will pay one man
a bonus of $1,345,000 per year while
thousands of the men who made
that money are loafing—waiting for
(business to come back—to Wall St.
5. I can't understand why our
congress and our legislatures con
tinue to appropriate so much money
for useless purposes tin many, many
cases) while they know it will serve
only to bankrupt our country in the!
long run. I can't understand why a i
politician hasn't got backbone;
enough to stand up for the rights of'
his people instead of sitting down I
for what tickles his political fancy, ;
6. I can't understand how the
man in debt will ever get out. I
can't understand why a poor man
prefers a car to ride in rather than
a house to live in. I can't understand
how “Big Business” ever got such a
strange-hold on our nation. I can’t
understand why so many men ure
crying for the return of whiskey
when they don't want their own i
younguns to drink it, and I can’t
understand why I have been goose j
enough to write this article which
I don’t understand.

Reynolds Tobacco Company, we art' Informed at the Piggly Wiggly,
was not the first business concern in the country to use cellophane wrap

that Mr Host, the Shelby baker, wraps his cukes in cellophane or some

so wrapped. Likewise, clothiers will tell you that certain brands of shirts
are wrapped in a similar paper.
