My wife and I were visiting her 95-year-old
grandfather when he asked us to take him to buy a new
hat. My wife took me aside. "Im worried that
he doesnt have enough money, and hell be very
embarrassed," she said.
So I asked the salesperson to tell my
wifes grandfather that whichever hat he chose cost
$15. I would pay the difference. Grandpa picked out a hat
and was charged $15.
After he left, I paid the other $45 of
the price. Later Grandpa said, "What a bargain! The
last one I bought there cost me $60."
Our newspaper carried the notice last

MINISTERS CLUB MEETS.
Week of Prayer Discussed
Rev. Oldham on "Applied Christianity."
The Ministerial Alliance this morning
discussed several local questions which went over without
final action, among which was the subject of the week of

Christianity." His prime thought was that Christ is
the center of the universe and to do his will would be
applied Christianity, and by doing his will the ills of
the world will be relieved. Dr. J. W. Stewart is to
enlighten the club next meeting on "Pauls View
Rev. Dixon was a visitor at the club

Just for the record, the
Mornin Mail will not accept any more
letters to the editor that are more than one
column in length.
Although we have some folks
out there that can actually hold the
attention of the readers for more than a
column, space limitations are a factor.
As Im sure our
readers are aware, we publish bout
anyones opinion. We do not print
opinions on personal religious beliefs,
abortion, or the death penalty. Anything else
is pretty much fair game as long as there are
no personal slams or reference to
Just as a reminder,
opinions are just that and the Mail
doesnt necessarily agree with or even
believe opinions that are stated as fact.

stiff, but when you rinse them before use, they
will be perfect.
