PAGE TWO cottar* ADVANCES, ALCANA. IOWA Just Fine C!oming to work this morning I met at least forty people, men going to work, women going and coming from the stores, children going to school. As is my custom I said good morning "how are you" to all of them, and each and every one answered "just fine." There is only one conclusion, if everybody is just fine this must be a fine old world. On this particular morning I was stiff and sore, my old heart was bumping, and a little hard to get my breath. I was feeling a little cross ways, but the thought came to me, what is the use of my being grumpy when all of the rest of the world is fine. I brightened up, got to the store, and felt so good that I marked a lot of women's kid oxfords down from $1.75 to $1.27. They are black kid oxfords with welt soles. Very easy on the feet and will stand the roughest wear. They are a wonderful, bargain at $1.27. We are trying to make this May the biggest May we ever had. We are marking things down to tempt your pocketbook.
