H. Y. Belk AND HIS NEWS OF NEBO VALLEY Hi Ho! Everybody. Labor Day gone toy OK, only swept away 665 they claim. Glad I wasn't numbered in that bunch. \ The 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 th, but we live on in another 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 you? A nation like an individual can spend itself into bankruptcy and that is what Harry is going to do if not checked. Oh, let her roll, always a stopping place. if we are going to fight Commu nism over the i pond. Why nOt ! begin first -here at home and fight it out of! \ the Capitol and It h e .Nation? [What I wish to J know-, come on I explain .to me if you can, whether you believe it or not peace on earth is farther a way than it was 2,000 year ago. 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 chine. It is true that the automo bile has thousands of parts.
