Sorry we could not have more hut these are very busy days for our farmers. 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. This town was built around the first store, not around a mail order cata logue. Dalles Chronicle.
