OCALA EVENING STAB, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 25, 1920
AT THE CHURCHES TOMORROW
A REBUILT CLASSIC
Who Said That
You hardly realize it, but the price of staple
groceries is getting back to normal verv fast.
In days gone by, we had a man to walk in the
store and ask a clerk to fix him up a lunch. When
asked what he wanted, he replied: "Oh, give me a
nickels worth of cheese and crackers; I don't care for
expenses.'' That day will soon be here again.
When dealing here you do not have to worry
about whether you are getting the right price or not,
for we see to it that our prices are in line. Then
too, you save around 10 under the service stores.
The list below will show you the difference in
the highest price you have paid for staples and the
price we are asking today.

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the flat
Every creature was dancing, excepting the cat.
The phonograph's cheerful, industrious bray
Untiringly sounded as time wore away:
The stockings and shoes had been chosen with care
Befitting the smartness of such an affair.
The children, who should have been snugly in bed,
Were having their Castle-Walk practiced instead.
And mamma in her slippers and I in my pumps
Were doing the Maxixe in synchonous jumps.
When up in the air there arose such a humming,
I ran to the window to see w-hat was coming;
And what should I view, as I opened the pane,
But good old St. Nick, in a swagger biplane!
It bumped on the roof after circling around,
And soon down the airshaft he came with a bound.
I peeped, as he opened his pack in the hall
A difficult task, for the package was small
And heard his remark, "It seems awfully queer
To carry "no budget from Europe this year!
But though war has bereft me of trinkets and toys,
I'm amply provided with holiday joys."

And he mused as he quickly selected a pile;
"A Lame Duck for grandpa; the Boston for dad;
For mother, the disk with the Argentine Fad.
For Gladys, the Dip she interprets with skill,
And here's a new Half-and-Half record for Bill.
Sue likes Hesitation a finished side-stepper;
Tom clings to the Tango, with plenty of pepper.
The Kitchensink Rag I'll apportion to Bridget;
The One-Step's for Minnie the spry little Midget!
As stockings from chimneys are pendant no more,
I'll lay 'em carefully here by the door!"
Then, placing his goggles astride his nose,
And adjusting his cap, up the air-shaft he rose,
With a satisfied grin, as he passed out of sight,
Saying, "On with the dance! Merry Christmas good night!"

When the last pep-hound shall have
Kis swan-song and faded away;
When jazz-bos are nought but i
And shimmies are female array,
I wonder what vivid creations
The wild minds of genius will rear
To jingle with the world for a season
And drive us at last to root beer?
When "the world's been told" till it
And chickens are birds, and not girl3;
When the "wicked hoof" is done
And wsmen wear more than just
I wonder what new-fangled marvels
The mongers of thrills will employ
To draw from the lips of the nation
Some cry that will equal "Oh Boy!"
