What Makes A Tow n
The trade territory of a town is
1 not dependent upon the distance
to neighboring tn ding points.
The trade territory depends up
on the enterprise o f the mer
chants and the residents of the
town. It a town does not reach
after the trade, it will come only
as fast as it has to, and it will
grow as it forced to. But if the
merchants go after business in
the surrounding country, adver
tising in every possible way, and
making good every word o f their
advertising, trade will come from
an ever-increasing radius, the
town will gain a reputation for
being awake and it will forge to
the front It is the men in the
town, and not altogether the
men living within a certain num
ber of miles from it that makes
Must Keep It Up
It does not pay to advertise
say some merchants who have
done but little of it and that
without keeping it up. The in
cident of the boy and the pump
illustrates the matter very well.
The boy was sent after a pail of
water. He poured in the prim
ing and poured out as much as
he poured in. Then he stopped
to rest and the priming ran down.
After some time of alternate
pumping and resting he con
cluded it did not pay to pump
and quit in disgust. The mer
chant who does not believe in
advertising does it like the boy
did the pumping. He advertised
again and then concluded adver
tising didn’ t pay.
He Won It

A schoolmaster once said to
his pupils to the boy who would
make the best piece o f compo
sition in five minutes on “ How
to Overcome Habit” he would
give a prize.
When the five
minutes had expired a lad of
nine years stood up and said:
“ Well, sir, habit is hard to over
come. If you take off the first
letter it does not change ‘abit’.
If you take off another letter
you still have a ‘bit’ le ft If you
take off still another, the whole
of ‘it’ remains. If you take off
another it is not totally used up,
all o f which goes to show that
if you want to get rid o f habit
you must throw it off altogether.”
Result—he won it.
