“In order to take care of the
tremendous volume of business
we had to open a larger, more
modern store,” he says. “We hope
to have all our old friends and
customers to come in and see
us, too, we hope to make hosts ol
new friends in our new location.
According to Mr. Stone the
prices on merchandise jyll be low-
er than ever. The volume of
sales should be so materially in-
creased by our new location that
the prices from the start will be
lower. “We are expecting Padu-
cah to not only be our best town
but to set records that will be
hard for any other store to
“This n£w store is dedicated to
the people of the surrounding
trade territory of Paducah. We

in turn, are giving them the most
modern store that they may shop
in comfort and know that the
surroundings befit the merchan-
dise they are buying.”

FIRST FARM SECRETARY
UNDERWENT HEAVY FIRE I
E. L. HUNSAKER
General Manager C. E. Stone
Better have your brakes good
and tight. You may need them
to avoid some fool who didn’t.
Signs of old age is when you
notice how much quicker tomor-
row comes than it once did.
We have recently installed a complete machine for
cutting and fitting of all glass for doors, windows and
windshields. All glasses fitted and put in a short time.
Glasses of all sizes in stock.
DAVIS BUICK CO.
Jeremiah M. Rusk, who was
the first Secretary of Agriculture
to fill a complete term, establish-
ed the Cabinet post under the
heaviest fire, according to a story
of the first official in Farm &
Fireside. Rusk received his ap-
pointment in 1889 as the result
of pressure by farm interests in
Congress, but no duties were
prescribed for him. As a result
he was obliged to be both archi-
tect and builder.
“The metropolitan press had
much mirth over the establishment
of a ‘pumpkin seed department’
by the government,” says the
article, and “Uncle Reuben in
the President’s Cabinet” was the
favorite vaudeville skit of forty
years ago. The hilarity was great
and the supporters few when
Jerry Rusk became the first agri-
cultural advisor to the President
of the United States. 1
“The new Secretary found that
his department was the first
branch of the government design-
ed to increase the national wealth.
The plans that he laid have not
been changed materially to this
Rusk waged a single handed
battle with Great Britain over
the quarantine against American
cattle, which was the outcome
of a difference over the Ameri-
can tariff on manufactured goods.
Passing beyond the realms of
diplomacy, Rusk finally won his
battle despite the antagonists of
short-sleeve diplomacy. A num-
ber of Rusk’s predictions for the
future of the farm industry have
been borne out, one exception be-
ing his statement, “I do not ex-
•sect to see anything revolutionary
’ike the control- of rainfall or the
development of its twin absurdity,
‘he flying machine.”
Rudyard Kipling claims he’s
been misquoted again in ithe
United States. And we’ll bet he
