King Cotton has suffered more from

havo grown eloquent expounding tho

EVERY person in St. Johns should be interested in
building nnd boosting the community.
We should encourage those social, civic and business af
fairs that will keep us interested in our immediate com
munity. The success of Church, of School,'of Business and of
City Government depends upon our loyalty to the place in
which we live.
If there is a lecture at the School for the public, let's all
turn out. If there is something worthy at our moving pic
ture houses, let us go and sec it.
If there is a musical to which we are invited, let's go.
All these things are calling us; the Churches arc call
ing us; let's surprise the Preacher by filling the pews.
As a business firm we will do our part, we surely will make you prices and buy
goods for you that will interest you if you will be interested in your neigh
