MARRIAGE OF FIRST COUSINS IS HALTED Ernest Davis, 28, and Pearl New, 20, of Warren county, obtained a license to marry at Spencer on a recent Wednesday, but before they had time to have the knot tied the bride's father arrived and on a showing that the pair are first cousins obtained cancellation of the license and took his daughter home. It is said that the parents on both' sides objected. In Iowa first cousins are forbidden to marry, but in many other jurisdictions there is no ban. The reason lor the ban is that the defects of common ancestors tend under certain conditions to reappear in the children of first cousins. Scientists hold that this objection to such marriages is not valid in cases where it can be shown that the common ancestry reveal% no inheritable defects of consequence. Often, indeed, it turns out that the children inherit the favorable rather than the unfavorable characteristics of their ancestors and are therefore of better breeding than their forebears. First, B.

Neville's shoe store is preparing for a big price slaughtering sale. Prices will be cut one-half. It will be a hard times party with prices cut to correspond with farm products. Why are we putting on this sale? We are not in need of money. We have no old goods to work off. Then why put on a sale? It is because I just closed a deal for $4,550.00 worth of distressed merchandise at 50c on the dollar and we feel we can do our customer* a lot of good and make some money for ourselves. That's the reason. • , ' '' '"••'•• • • •'.« '• There seems to be more merchandise on the market today than there is money to buy it. Cash talks in a very loud voice just how. Merchants are going out of business, lots of them busted. I can name twenty stocks for sale right now. It is a hard season for retail stores and I am not taking any chances. We buy them for spot cash and make prices that unload the goods in a hurry. We dp not keep them around to look at, for there will be plenty more to buy when we have this stock sold. Cut prices on good staple merchandise keeps the store full of customers and keeps the cash register ringing. It takes snap, energy, and hard work to do'these things, hut it is a great saving for the buying public just now wbjle money IB so scarce. People want goods, they have got to have them, but they cannot pay old time prices.. At this Bale you will find prices to suit your pocketbook. Come on, people, and get your share of the bargains. Sale starts Friday, February 26, and will continue for ten days. Florence McGllligan spent Thursday In Mason City with last the Fred Beckers. She le employed at Kennedy's.
