[The following sayings were taken from an advertisement placed by One Cash Price House on the McCaskill Block on Baldwin Avenue in DeFuniak Springs.]

“Trade here and get your money’s worth and then some.”

” A penny saved is a penny earned. It’s old, but it’s gospel truth.”

“There’s plenty of room at the top, but the elevator is not running today.”

“When you reach the top of the ladder–yell for more ladder.”
