When I say 79 they ask why I do not quit Work and take ' .it easy. For me to quit work would mean a trip Jo the silent city. I come from a long lived family. Shanty Irish on one side and a school teacher on th'e other. The last thing any of them ever did was to die. My grandmother died in childbirth at the age of 93. She would have lived longer if she had been less ambitious. My folks were all poor people. Some of them honest, some dishonest. Most of them were hard workers—a few on the lazy order. One of my brothers is farming. He raised everything on that farm except the mortgage. He loved to visit and never took a drink unless he was alone or with somebody. I do not know who to compare my family to. I know there were none of them like Geo. Washington or Abe Lincoln. As I run true to form I am not supposed to be very smart. About all I know is shoes. Sixty-two years ago I was sitting on the bench making and mending shoes. Have been in the shoe game ever since. I know shoes. I know how to buy them and where to buy them. I know the inside of a shoe is more important than the 'outside. It takes good innersoles and counters to make a shoe stand up in the feed lot and other heavy work. 1 The same holds good of dress shoes. In wovjc shoes and dress shoes the inside construction |inli perfect fitting means the difference between a satis- Tied customer and one that is always looking around. This week we are selling men's Johnsonian' $5.00 oxfords at $3.98. Every pair makes a satisfied customer. • Jimmie Neville $16,080 IN BONDS SOLDSWEA-EAGLE SADDLE CLUB SHOW Swea-Eagle—-The Farmers Saddle club held a show Sunday at the Harold Evans farm.

Then when school opened August 30, she again donned her woman s apparel and took up teaching for the school year And sh« expects to take on her brother's work on the home place next spring as soon as her teaching job is finished for the year.
