THE FOOT STORE
BRING YOUR FOOT TROUBLES
TO THE FOOT STORE
Your poor, troubled, burdened feet
receive little care or thought. A man
may be careful of his teeth and stom-
ach. A woman may be thoughtful of
her hair and complexion—but the tir-
ed, aching, corned, bunioned or cal'
loused foot receives little attention.
The foot is the pedestal of the body.
It carries all the burden. It with-
stands an average shock of 8000 steps
per day. Do you wonder that it burns
and aches and pains and cries for re-
lief ? Bring us your foot troubles.

FARMERS SHORT COURSE.

benefit to all those who care to keep
abreast of the times ih farm work.

LAND FOR SALE.
We have several farms for sale. We
have sold several farms recently. We
can sell your place if it is priced right.
No sale, no charge.
How. does eighty acres of good san-
dy land at $30 per acre sound in these
days of high prices. Well you better
see us at once or it will be sold.
Would you buy seventy-one acres of
pretty fair black land well located and
well improved ? Yes, you would if
you saw it at $45 per acre.

AGAINST THE CURRENT
Let lis stop drifting and consider facts.
It is a cold hard fact that no civilized man can live com-
fortably without money;
The sooner a man realizes that he is not one of the few
men who can make money fast the better it will be for him
and his future.
A thousand men spend as they go, expecting after awhile
to make money and save it. One in a thousand does.
Better play safe and save part of your earnings now.
Start a bank account with us; we will help you save.

LATE BEAN PATCH.
Arthur Sherrod, who lives out in
the sandy land belt north of town,
was here yesterday with a few garden
snap beans he had induced to grow
during the hot, dry weather. He had
only 180 pounds of beans yesterday,
which he could get only ten cents a
pound for. This encouraged him a
little, so he came back this morning
with a few more gunny sacks full of
as fine Kentucky Wonders as you
ever saw. These he also had to give
away for only ten cents a pound. He
says that he had up to this morning
sold five hundred pounds of beans off
his patch, and that he had fully two
hundred more ready to gather. By
the time he gathers these he will have
just gotten over his patch once. That
would make him 700 ponds for the
first picking, which at ten cents a
pound would be $70.00, The vines
are blooming nicely and if nothing
happens Mr. Sherrod will be gather-1
ing beans until frost comes. What it
will pay him is problematical, of
course, but since he has already got-
ten $70 off of less than one-fourth
acre of land, he will have no complaint
coming if the balance of his crop
comes up short and does not pay him
over $75 or $100 more.
HOUSE TO TRADE.
We have a nice two-story house on
Star street to trade for farm. Will

attend the meeting they will be given
a hearty welcome. /
