Tho secret of town building what is
it? It is for all Us cilizeii.s to pull to
gether and work in concert. Towns
do not gtow of themselves, but grow
because they are peopled hy men who
know the secret and are not afraid to
prove their faith in their town by their
works. A citizen who is not willing
to do all in his power to advance his
town is a positive detriment to it, and
the town would bo far better oil' with
out him. You can't build up by
sitting on dry goods boxesor standing
on the street corners growling because
the lown hasn't inanufacturies and
everything it ought to have, while you
leftist) to patronize what it has got, and
send to l'ortland or Chicago for dry
goods and groceries, probably getting
less for your money by doing so than
you could get at homo. There never
was a town on earth built up in that
way, anil there never will he.
