Drivers' Licenses Must Be
Purchased By October 1
You motorists who haven't yet
secured your drivers', licenses had
better get busy, as the law requires
that they be purchased by October
1. Failure to secure them by that
date means that the operator must
take a test before the license can
be issued. George Tapper is the au-
thorized representative for Judge
Earl Pridigeon in this city.
A recent ruling requires that any
operator who desires 'to change
from operator to chauffeur must
take an examination.
Another change this year is In
the restriction on licenses issued
to operators between 14 and 16
years of age. They are allowed to
drive only during daylight hours
and' must be accompanied by an
operator 16 years of age or older
at all times'except when operating
a motorcycle or motor-scooter.
Mrs. Harrell Improved In Healtl)
Mrs. Kate Harrell of Cottondaie,
who has been quite ill for some
time, is here with her daughter,
Mrs. W. H. Howell, and we are glad
to report she is much improved in

REDISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH
If all the money now in circulation in the
United States were equally divided, each Am-
erican would have $200.30-for A little while,
Given their share, some of those, who
haven't that much now, would gamble it away
before sunrise; some would drink it up pretty
quickly; some would invest it for rapid turn-
overs. Some would lose their shirts; some
would immediately begin achieving lasting
Eventually, the money would be redis-
tributed just about as it is at present, with the
foolish and the unfortunate dependent upon
the lucky and the wise. Mere possession of
money is not enough-there has got to be abil-
ity to handle it.-Lakeland Ledger.
A book that is touted as the cleanest ever
published-being made entirely of soap in leaf
form-is a best-seller in Melbourne, but the
wary will lay no wagers on its super-duper
purity until it has stood the test of Boston.
As a matter of fact, we rather look for Bos-
ton to ban it. Boston reasoning, as best it can
be anticipated, will probably run as follows:
Soap suggests bathing. Bathing suggests
nudity. Nudity is naughty. The book, there-
fore, is suggestive, indecent, obscene, lewd
and subversive of morals, and should be pro-
hibited, the public welfare requiring it.
The moral? Anything can be suggestive, if
you reach far enough for the suggestion.-St
Fifty years ago farmers didn't vote on how
much they should grow. They grew what they
pleased and trusted to luck for a market. It's
strange, but none of them ever starved to
death, and they managed to meet their bills
once a year at least.
It's easy for some folks to forget the little
things-but about that time one of them lets
loose with a howl, "I wanna drink of water,':
Anyway, that story about Edison's academic
dumbness has been a great inspiration for
many a schoolboy.

prove the best of men.

The toilet paper situation really
is getting serious here. Becoming
harder to find than the proverbial
hen's teeth. George MdLa-
hon asked us why we only printed
four pages in The Star last week,
and when we told him there had
been eight pages, he turned to his
wife and said: '.'So that's where the
other 'four pages went!" And
Jake White, up at Wewahitchka,
says the people up there are also
having a terrible time-that they
