The work on the large turkey
killing, dressing and freesing
plant for the Parkhill Feed and
Produoe Company is nearly com*
pleted and this firm is now ready
and amply prepared to handle
all the turkeys raised in Bur-
leson county this season, and
will shortly begin the work of
killing, picking and dressing
turkeys to be shipped in car
load lots to the northern and
eastern markets. The freezing
plant is being put In now at the
ice plant, and Mr. Parkhill
wishes the farmers to know that
he will handle all their turkeys
and pay them the very top market
price this season, and as he has
gone to considerable expense in
order to haudle them, ol course
he is entitled to your patronage.
'Ye editor spent Saturday at
the Dallas Fair as that was
"Press Day" and all newspaper
men were there trying to figure
out some way to obtain 'a reduc-
tion in the price of paper and to
get ample supply, but their
hopes were shattered in both re-
spects. as the paper situation
is still serious with no prospects
of a lower price for some time to
come. We managed to land a
half ton shipmeut of news how-
ever, which will help some.
ONE DIME A DAY
A silver dime isn't much of a fortune, that's
true. But a dime a day saved for a year would
be quite a little help. Here are some of the things
it would do.
It would buy you a new suit of clothes. It
would pay for a lot of Christmas presents for
poor children. It would make a creditable pay*
ment on a home Library. It would buy a good
watch, an engagement ring, in fact any one of
these or a thousand other things you might want.
Don't despise the dime because it is small.
Little drops of water make the mighty ocean.
