KQS8WH cotmw 41 Years Ago The Constitution says all men ar^born equal. That is so, but later oil in our country's history the fellows that bored the clevis holes in the whiffletree of equalization gave some men and certain interests a big advantage over others. There are more slaves in the United States today than before the Civil war'. Slaves to money, slaves to green and ayer- ice, slave to dope, slaves to idleness and crime, slaves to habits contracted during boom times when money was plentiful. It is hard to get back and live like we used to. I remember 41 years ago (the year Gene was born) 1 worked for $1.00 a day pressing hay at Wesley. That same year I put -up 112 acres of hay on shares for Nate Stucler and pitched it into Kunz's barn at $2.00 a ton. Nate got 66 2-3c and I got $1.33 l-4c on each ton. I sold shoes rainy days and evenings. Traded horses while I was resting, and cried sales all fall and winter. We had just as much to eat then as we have now. We wore more clothes then than we do now. Those days it took S yards of cloth to make a woman's dress, now li/ t yards of the same goods is plenty. Those days a young fellow getting married took his own chances, now days he can see what he is getting. But talking about early days is not advertising this wonderful stock of shoes we have on hand, and boy, we have the shoes. It is the largest and best stock of new up- to-date standard shoes I ever saw under one roof. The store is full, the bargain basement is full, and the store room is full of surplus shoes. We have shoes for everybody, ' men, women, and children. All standard, reliable makes, all new. Five expert shoe fitters to wait on you and at prices cheaper than you can buy the same makes anywhere else.
