From where I sit... oe Marsh THAO PaiBBS' house got struck by lightnin'a couple of nights ago. The kitchen chimney was knocked off and the roof set on Ore, and Thad found things pretty lively and ex- citin' for • spell. The fire was soon out though, thanks to the prompt and efficient work of the local fire department, as the paper says.,. and I never seen a man so grateful as Thad. Chief Ed Carey was sort of embarrassed, I guess; by the thanks that was bein' heaped on him. That's all right, Mr. Phibbs," he says. "That's all right, sir—f/m/'« what you fat taxes for." From where I sit, I'd say Chief lid's remark seems to have a lesson in it... a lesson on the way that taxes come back in mighty real benefits to the people. Take the taxes on beer, Pi-instance—more than 2'/j billion dollars, I hear, figurln' federal, state and local, in the nine years since beer's been back. There was a time—remember- when a lot of that money went into the pockets of bootleggers and blind pigs. But today it's coming right back to the treasuries of the nation, the states and the local communities,.. for the benefit of tvtrybady. * * * Some goes, for example, to pay for the things Uncle Sam needs to fight the war with ... for tanks and ships and bombers. Quite a lot goes for things like public health, and education, and good roads and the like. And some of it, I surmise, has gone to support the fire company that gave Thad such good Service the other night. To moderate folks, who like a friendly glass of beer now and then, ' there's a sort of satisfaction in knowing that right now this beverage of moderation is furnishin" the public treasuries well over a million dollars every single day. That's quite a lot of money—es- . pecially nowadays when Uncle Sam needs every cent he Can get hold of.

A BRIEF STUDY of the table on the right will f\. show you how easily you.may become the owner of a fine Opportunity Farm. After the down payment has been made, you figure 6% yearly on the balance. This sum is payable each year—and it covers both interest,and payment on the principal. Opportunity Farms are root values recognized by experienced farmers who know' farms. Proof of this lies in the fact that thousands who have bought Opportunity Farms are paying the balance they owe faster than their contracts require, and are doing so out of current earnings. The ability to purchase farms on such favorable terms may not always be available. Why wait longer to own the farm you have always wanted? Consult your Opportunity Farm agent today ... and see how easily you can share in these excellent farm values. WHAT 13 AN OPPORTUNITY F/IRM?
