the great secrets of the low price that
mail-order houses are able to make is
the selling for cash plan.
Any farmer who is honest can bor

take that money and do better with it
than he could with his credit at the
store where he buys what he needs.
Dealers now have what they call their

banks would give them too much of a

other merchants bears 8 per cent inter

now charge on good notes, and if a man
cannot furnish an 8 per cent risk, the
chances are he will furnish no greater
profit to the man or institution from
which he gets money than would be
the good borrower who pays the lower

greatly cheapen the price of the goods

A very painful accident happened
to Mr. Claude Everett, Jiving four
miles southeast of Union, last Satur

with an arm load of fuel for tbe house,
when in some manner he stepped on a
round piece of wood, which threw the
ax that was lying on the ground sharp
edge upward and it struck his left
arm near the elbow, cutting a gash
which took several stitches to close.
The Journal regrets to learn of this
accident to one of its old friends, and

soon make use of that member.
