A new era is on. Elgin is beginning
to live In the atmosphere of business
hustle, push and progresslveness.
Business men are awake to the fact
that something of a united effort must
be put forth for Elgin and her sur
rounding country to bring out the lat
ent resources and possibilities with
which nature has endowed us. From
this day on It can be said that Elgin
is "a live one," and that hereafter she
will go out after the business of all
the territory within' a radius of many
miles. Elgin Leader.
