Kpcal:i"s of hospitality, the Com

an important factor aloiu thin line
and it is hoped (bat duo attention will
be jiiven this jjieat feature. Tio in
teiestH Itern aiti of such niaf,'iiilndo
that many "captains of industry"
will be attracted at visitors, with the
view of seckitiL' investment. To all
such a hospitable reception by an or
ganized body of business men, such
as the Commercial Club, will p a
Inuir way toward formiiii; irood im-
tircssioiis in the minds of such men
It is to be hoped the elub wilt ive

There Is no more con eel index to
the thoimhl and pro'rressivo stunt
which characterizes a city than the
suimort unveil the local newspaper, ex
cept il be said newspancr itself. The
publisher of Tho Roviow appreciates
this fact, and it is his purpose and
aim to make the paper worthy of llio
support of every resident of the 1'en
Insula, and enable its patrons to refer
to it witli a leclinn ol prule and sat
isfaction. Your support is asked for
as von iiinv deem Tho Roviow worthy
f it. The more liberal you render
viiur patronage, tlie butler paper you
will have reason In expect.
The future of Ht. Johns is bright
and full of iiiomlse. All that Is re
united for a full realization of our
loudest nones Is it stunt oL "null-to-
Uclhorivcnoss." Cast aside nil feelinjr
of selllshncss. and lei every deed nml
thoimhl be for the general welfare
of lliu community. If our neighbor
does anything to Improve himself, il
is so much toward I lie licnellt of all.

Apptupos of this trniliMil-liome
idea. In a crtain town not far from
St. Johns, the good Indies of it church
organization decided lo iiinku their
pastor n "iHiiiml party" donation.
Of course, llio subscription iitur was
ciiciilalcd. Konio thirty odd dollars
was subscribed, almost every cent of
il b.v (he local grocer, dry goods deal
er. butcher, baker, ele. Tho ladles met
collided out their Ihlily odd dollars,
then apMiinlcd a eommillee of Illicit
lo lake the money and t:o lo a certain
city fourteen miles away mid buy Ihu
various "ihiinnl" articles from deal
ers who never contributed it cent.
didn't know the pastor, mid, still
furl her, didn't emu it continental, ex
cept for the homo dealers' dollars.
This ticlnally occurred in a (own close
by. llio thoughts of Ihu contributors
would not look well if uttered mid
printed in this column.
The crying evil of inativ snbutlmn
towns nml, Ihu "unpardonable, sin" of
which hi mmiy complain, mid in many
instances justly, loo, Ik tho disposition
lo ignore Ihu homo merchant nml
denier nml go to n neighboring city to
trade. This praclico is an .vil and a
serious one. Tho Roviow believes,
and strongly, too, in tlio principle of
patronizing heme industry and homo
institutions wherever nml whenever
it. is possible lo do so. Of cottrte, in a
new town it is sometimes impossible
to secure every article from slock Hint
may bo desired, but in all such cases
the home merchant can secure il for
you, ami at the same prices which ob
tain in the neighboring city. To the
customer who makes a praclico of , or
even occasionally, purchasing away
from home, the importance of litis
matter may not present itselt. Hut
it is important and vitally so. The
home merchant pays taxes to build up
and beautify your surroundings, con
tributes toward tliu support of your
churches and all other public lieii'v
llciarics. If a donation for any pur
pose is wanted, the llrst person you
go to is your grocer, your butcher,
your my goods mail, etc., mil never a
rent do you get from .Mr. Merchant in
tho other town. You don't even ask
any one else lint tho home man. No
use, and you know it. Dear reader,
gel in mid organize your family into
a Iraile-at-ltoine club. (Jivo your
home merchant (lie bencllt of tho dol
lars he helps you to earn, and you will
soon K'e the henellts. Trade at home.
A city ordinance is in force levy
ing it licetiso of two dollars per day
on peddlers. A righteous and jusl
law it is, ami the city authorities
"lioulil see that it is vigorously en
forced. A I'oillain butcher III in
presented a sparsely signed petition to
tlio council Monday iilghl asking
the lepcal of the law, or at least to
ledttce the feu to n nominal sum. To
the credit of our city i'allicts they
refused to do so. it would be man!
feslly unfair to the butchers of this
city to allow mi outside fit tit to invade
this territory ami compete with them
us proMiscil, without contributing to
the exchequer of the city, and liber
ally, too. The llrms in this lino of
business here have invested their
money, pay their taxes, and are idcnli
lied Willi the town, ami if other linns
want to compete with those already
established, let them come mid do the
same. It is their right, if they wish,
hut they should not be allowed to
couiK'te on unfair basis. Patronize
home enterprises il you waul llio city
lo build up.
