When the southern cause collapsed, Crow was compelled to trudge 400 miles on foot to the old homestead at Ethel where he settled down to rear a family. In the intervening years lie has seen the lumbering stagecoach give way to the fleet automobile and the comfortable motorbus, the soggy gumbo and rough corduroy roads of his childhood to the wide, paved roads of today, and although he was long past middle age >efore the modern automobile became commonplace he is as enthusiastic a driver as youngsters who can boast ess than one-quarter of his years.

Dear Sir: There seems to be a general impression that town folks are not affected by the presnt depression, and that there is a lot of money in the mercantile business and a movement for others to get into the game.
