Hi Ho! Everybody. Labor Day

State Highway Safety Council
told us how many would be
knocked off that day, but why
didn't they call out the names.
That's the biggest fool thing yet
toeing killed on the highways in
a trap. Tell us how many birds
will they kill off Thanksgiving.
Then comes dear old Christmas,
with a few more dead souls.
They done put out the news that
by Dee. 31 one thousand will be
slain on highways in these rat
tle-traps. What fools we mortals
toe, knowing that life is but a
span at best, s;ill we venture on
life's uncertain highway and
come toack in after the big time
-dead. That's the end on this ear

country. Heaven, maybe hell. Lets
quit getting killed on the high
ways. Life is so sweet, short if
we live to the end. I love it. don't

GOD'S MERCY STORE
One of strangest stores in the
world today is in the little town of
Waller, Texas. It is called "God's
Mercy Store, " and is owned
toy A. D. Purvis In it is every
thing from a fish hook to a cof
fee pot, tout no clerks. The?custo
mer selects his purchase, shows
... . I
the owner the price marked on I
it. It is the price the storekeeper j
paid lor it. If the customer gives
a five dollar bill, he is asked
how much change he wants and
the amount is given without
question. Purvis has been con- !
ducting this 'store for 24 years.
The idea for his Unique store
came to him when he became ]
worried over his neighbors. They
were ail poor share croppers, con
stantly in debt to the large plan
tation owners. One night Purvis
dreamed that God told him to
sell his little farm and go to the
nearest town, and start a store
for these poor share croppers. He
went to Waller, where he built a
stocked shack. Thus began God's
Mercy Stone. The only successful
store on earth where the custor
mer divides the shop keeper's
profits. The mercy I show to oth
ers Lord, that'mercy show to me.
I sure don't know what will be
come of a lot ot our merchants
who are charging two prices just
?because of this war. On April the
first a man could buy a Model A
tractor for $1970 ? now they tell
me the price has jumped to S2,
400. Now the cost of living is
steadily going up, but its not on
ly as you merchants mark it up.
No two sell alike. Got your own
price. Well, skin 'em while you
can, but don't forget a war s on.
Today we think of the automo
bile -as the most wonderful ma

bile has thousands of parts. And
it has to be greased and oiled

all over to make it useful. A
wonderful machine indeed. But
