ALL A MISTAKE This is what happened. The Mrs. being a Democrat, thought too much work was not good and we would soon be old enough to get the old age pension, so we would retire and get the old age help, but I think we will get it sooner if we keep on working. She thought she would run an ad telling the folks we was going out of business. The only way I will go out of business is for someone to make a product better than I can. My business is making mattresses in the best way I know how, and we build sleeping comfort in our mattresses because we are working for our neighbors. We know they depend on us to deliver an honest built product. We will call at your home and talk with you about your bedding problems and you do not need to feel any obligation. If we can be of any Service, we will be glad to render it. We meet all competition. We tend to our own business and we know our competitors work to make a living and we wish them well. We know every one has virtues. The devil has one virtue, that is, he tends to his zusiness, ihs business is raising hell and that is very plain to see, that he is on the job all the time.
