IT PAYS TO ADVERTISE
advertised that he would sell his Ford for one-half the price he paid for
it, but he received no response from the "ad." He then
advertised that he would sell it for one-quarter of the price he paid.
Still no response. He was pretty well discouraged, so offered to
sell it for enough money to pay for the advertisements. No
response. Finally he made the announcement that he would leave his
car in front of the post office the next night and if anyone would take it
away, they were welcome to it. That night after supper he drove up
and left his car as announced.
In passing along the street the other day, I noticed a man standing by a tree looking up. I was curious and looking up I saw a Ford car in the top of the tree. I asked the man how it got there and he said, "Why, I was cranking it and it slipped out of my hand."
