E.L. Gray: I don't know what the devil to do without Fred.
Clyde Green: There are five tests for the eye and I passed four of
them. In all other ways I passed the examination. I am going to try
it again for the aviation corps.

John O. Laffer: It takes cold weather to sell clothing, but the
folks have to have warm weather to get to town; so there you are.
O.A. Seaton: I figure that my eggs are costing me fifty dollars a dozen.
Mrs. Frank Ruggles: A rabbit looks too much like a skinned cat for me to eat.
Walter Carpenter: We have had the best business since we went on a
cash basis that we ever had since we have been in business.
John Bottorf: I could gather all my corn in 2 or 3 days if I could
walk fast enough.
W.R. Whitney: I saw Sid Brown and his family while I was in
Oklahoma. Sid is 82 years old and last year he suffered a stroke of
Johnny Strohm: If you think groceries are high you ought to "board
out' a while.
Martin Oplinger: You wouldn't think I could hold George Zipse right

W.A. Matson: The government borrowing money of the people is just
like a man borrowing money of his wife-it doesn't worry him a bit.
Mrs. Edith Shinn: I don't see what Dr. Wesselowski is kicking about.
He always has his check written out on the morning of the 1st, and
hands it to me as he comes up town. I am just trying to get them all
to follow the Dr.'s illustrious example. It doesn't cost them a
penny more and it does us a lot of good.
Mrs. C.F. Wood: For a year I was not able to walk down town, but I
can make it now.
Roy Wallace: Tom Lowe is as spry as a chicken, yet. He got $3,000
rent from one of his irrigated farms this year. He also raised a
thousand bushels of the biggest potatoes I ever saw.
George Vance: I've got only 90 loads of ice so far and I need 340.
Charles Bowles: I have the rheumatism so bad some days that I can
hardly tell the truth.
Ed Young: I hate to see such an all round first-class man and good
farmer as Quincy Norris is, leave Jewell county.
D.C. Dyas: The new Formoso oil well is within half a mile of my
place. The engine, boilers, drill, and the whole business arrived

Alvah Rose: I am feeding 90 hogs and 30 cattle, this year, and I
raised the corn to feed them out.
Bert Lake: I'm milking 19 cows at present.
John Palmer: I believe a woman fixed up that questionnaire. No man
could have thought of that many questions.
Miss Ople McLean: One important item was omitted from the paper last
week. It was that the school board made my room a present of a fine
Victrola and a bunch of new records.
