People seldom stop to consider how
much their town means to them.
They take it too much for granted,
and in counting un thier blessings
make a superfiical inventory that fails
to credit the source from which many
of their dearest benefits flow. It is
easy to overlook the home town in
summing up one's happiness because
the town is such a laree, all-enveloping
thing so large, in fact that it's
hard to see and the citizen blindly
draws sustenance from it like an in
fant from its mother.
Traced to their source most of
life's blessings will be found to havb
their root in that aggregation of hu
man beings and human ititerests known
as a town. The town is the unit of
modern civilization and it is the
channel through which civilization
confers its benefits. There is scarcely
a phase of civilization that does not
find direct and specific expression in i
the life organization of a town that
is large enongh to have a school, a
courthouse, a library, a bank, a mill,
a factory, a church, a waterworks, a
brass band, a newspaper, and a rail
road station. Representing education,
jurisprudence, literautre, finance,
industry, religion, hygiene, art, and
the commodities these institutions ex
press all that is highest and best in
human achievement. If civilizaion is
good, theu the home town is Rood, and
the citizens should be proud and
thankful of it. Instead of casting
wondering and envious glances at a
distant New Yoik, let us glow with
pride for cur own little city, realiz
ing that the difference it only one of
degree and not of kind.

store, not around a mail order cata
