REQUEST
(From "India’s Low Lyrics •
Give me your self one hour; i do
not crave
For any love, or even thought, of
me.
Come, as a Sultan may caress a
slave
And then forget for ever, utterly.
Come! as west winds, that passing,
cool and wet.
O'er desert places, leave them fields
in flower
And all my life, for 1 shall not for
get,
Will keep the fragrance or that per
fect hour!

The Tax Issue.
j Laurinburg, N. C., May 28, 1931,
You South Carolina folk are all
I the time slandering North Carolina
about her high taxes. Look around
[ your own premises and tell us what
the poor man has to pay in the way
of taxes on his so-called luxuries and
I "rite or foam "
ours truly ^
Harum Skarum
I Deal Harum
You keep off South Carolina. We
are in fine shape. Nearly every leg
islator we have can read and write
and spell. Lots and lots of ’em have
actually worked in stores, and some
I of them have studied law, but the
majority of them are good business
men and know all about whetting
«tws and where to put the tax.
As little as you think of it, South
Carolina citizens pay only a 40 per
cent tax on gasoline and not quits
28 per cent on cigarettes and less'
than 16 percent on chewing tobacco
and not quite 72 per cent on malt
for making home brew and nearly
35 per cent on golf balls and hardly
36 per cent on good candy, and Just
20 per cent on soft drinks and scar
cely 15 per cent on real estate, and
[perhaps 18 per cent on their install
ment automobiles. But snuff bears
I only a 10 percent tax
Home oia mean somebody irom
out-of-the state has circulated the re
j port far and near that the laat iag
I islature has put a 2 cent stamp tax
i on doodles and a 4-cent tax on doo
; die holes. That's an out-and-out fab
ricated falsehood; the man evidently
had walking-sticks on his mind; and
not doodles or appurtenances there
to. We are getting tired of out-siders
talking about us. Whoever told that
half of the land of South Carolina
will be sold for taxes during the
next ten years told something that
he knew absolutely nothing about.
Why, the best posted men in our
“Bugs” Baer proposes a solution
[for the Muscle Shoals problem. He
suggests that it be cut up into show
er baths.
Both political parties seem rather
reluctant to take the responsibility
[ for what the next congress may do.

Booze Cheaper In
Price And In Grade
Hickory, May 27.—Bootleg liquor
is not only coming down in price in
the Hickory area, but it is falling
off in quality, according to the
comment of those who profess to
kndw.
One man about town today de
clared that all the comment he has
heard recently has agreed that the
booze that is being peddled in these
parts is the "rottenest’' it has ever
been.
On the other hand, everyone says
the prices are “shot to pieces ‘ and
the bootlegger now docs like the
strawberry farmer—he takes what
he can get for his wares
Beef Price* Lowest
Since The Year 1926
Chicago Daily News.
Beef prices are now at the lowest
level since December 1926, G. F.
Swift president of Swift and com
pany, said today. Tills is because of
largely increased cattle receipts dur
ing the last six weeks. Live cattle
prices are unprofitable to producers i
From the standpoint of cost and
food-value, Mr, Swift asserted, beef'
should be on the table of every
home daily,
•'Great responsibility for future
cattle production rests upon retail
ers, who should be willing to specia' -
ir.e on beet sales, in order to push
beef into consumption.” Mr. Swift
said. “If there are further declines
in livestock prices they will have the
effect of still further decreasing cat
tle production, and this will result
later in extremely high prices for
beef, to the disadvantage of retail
ers and consumers.”
i
Drug Co. Mrs. H. S. Plaster, winner
of the general high score prize, was
also winner of an attractive hooked
ehalr mat, given as high score prize
by Mrs. Ben Buttle who was en
tertaining members of the Tuesday
afternoon bridge club and a few
guests at three tables. Simple but
delicious refreshments were served
by members of the Golf club.
At the evening party bridge was
played at nine tables and prizes
were won as follows: First prize for
ladies by Mrs. R. V. Woods, dress
material given by Ora mill; first
prize for men* by Mr. Clyde Short,
a dozen golf balls, given by the
Cleveland Hardware Co.: the second
prize went to Mrs. Sam Schenck,
a cookie set by the Shelby Hardware
Co.; and the second prize for men
was a carton of cigarettes given by
! the Plggly Wiggly company, and
went to Mr. Grady Lovelace. Sim
ple refreshments were served at the
close of ^the evening
state say that not over 49 percent of!
it will be sold for taxes within 9
years and 8 months, so there you
are.
Now, Mr. Harem—if the hen-egs
stamp tax had passed the house in
stead of being vetoed by the senate,
we would have been up against it. It
was the purpose of this proposed bill
to require each hen to affix a 5-cent
tax stamp to every egg she laid be
fore it got cold. With Just a few ex
ceptions, such as politics and chig
gers, we are getting along fine down
here, I thank you

which the republican administration

argenteen and other lurrln coun
tries hafter clime a tarriff wall to
get their stakes andsororth into this
country.
that law will prove a big benny
tit to the cattle and hog growers
who raise same tor beet insted of
milk as it will ennable them to
charge us beer peddlers more for
livers and stew beet and other apur
tenanees thereto so’s we can pay
them more tor him or her on toot
as the case might be, and in th»
long run, the farmer who retched
the live stock up on his farm will
have several dollars more to pijt in
ottermobeels and other farm mach

in the long run, the tariff will
prove a big boom to everryboddy ex

1 have been able from time to
