The man who will not advertise is driv. fag the hearse, The man who |s el. ways pulling back from any public enterprise throws bouquets on the grave. The man who is so" stingy aJ to be howling hard times, preacher the funeral, sings the doxology, and thus the town lies buried from al. 1 sorrow and care.--Greenville (Tenn.) News.
