HERE can be no doubt that the prosperity of the country the entire
people is based on the quantity of produce BAISED ON TUE
FAIIMS, nud no other one thing so seriously u fleets the business
interests of the country as a general crop failure. If the crops are
generally good throughout the country and happen to be n failure In one par
ticular locality the merchants are not dependent on the home farmer, but cuu
have his goods, produce, etc., shipped iu from other sections nnd thus supply
the demand of Ids customers, white, on the other hand. THE FARMEIt

THE MERCHANT NEVER BUYS HIS PRODUCE, HAY AND GRAIM
FROM OUTSIDE FOINTS WHEN HE CAN GET THEM FROM THE.
FARMER, BUT THAT THE FARMER IS GIVEN LARGELY TO THE

HOUSES. IS A WELL KNOWN FACT.

MR. FARMER, DO YOU THINK IT RIGHT TO COME TO TOWN WITH
A LOAD OF PRODUCE AND SELL IT TO THE MERCHANTS OF YOUR
MARKET PLACE AND THN TAKE THE MONEY HE PAYS YOU AND
SENp IT TO SOME MAIL ORDER HOUSE AND BUY GOODS THAT
YOU COULD BUY JUST AS CHEAPLY AT HOME AS FROM A MAIL
ORDER HOUSE AND HAVE THE FURTHER SATISFACTION OF SEE
ING WHAT YOU BUY?
You may say, "Oh, well, i sold my butter ami eggs to the groceryuinn.
but he does'n't handle clothing:" Yes; but. my farmer friend, if the clothing
man docs not sell his clothing he must go out of business, and the grocery man
loses a good customer, his business is curtailed, nnd he then must needs buy
less of your produce. Yu are Just os much in duty bound to buy your cloth
ing, your hardware, your farm tools and other necessities from your homo
market as if these merchants all dealt in your wares tlrst hand.
THESE VARIOUS BUSINESSES ARE INTERLOCKING AND INTER
DEPENDENT, AND ON THEIR SUCCESS DEPENDS YOUR 8UCCESS.
. A certain good farmer in this county ordered n corn planter from a mail
order house and. owing to delays in freights, did not get bis planter In timi
to do bis planting while a good spell of weather was on. However, It Anally
came, ne got it to the farm, set it up and started In with his planting.
Through carelessness or oversight a small gravel got in one of the holes
through which the corn drops nnd there lodged, with the result that the platw
was broken. This put the planter out of commission. The farmer had to stop
his corn planting and come to town to Bee If he could get another plate. He
called on the hardware stores and implement dealers, but as none of them
carried these mnil order house planters in stock he could find no plate, and-
i the final result was he was forced to follow the plow ana drop bis corn by
hand. Had he purchased his planter irom a nomc morcuani ne coma easny
have got the necessary repair and not been delayed. It certainly was more
costly" to the farmer than If he had paid his home Implement dealer many
dollars more. Furthermore, the implement dealer had been buying corn every
season from th.s farmer who bought bis planter from mall order honse.
Every dollar you send to a mall order house is taken out of local circula
tion eiitlrelv. and' the good of it is lost forever. IT HURTS YOU IN THE
LONG RUN Just as much us any one. Therefore, before you order anything
else from out of your borne town go to town and sef if yoi can find what you
want or If von can't get to town telephone a merchant, and if it ts a small
mickuge he w ill send it out by parcel post If it Isn't satisfactory send it
back . Merchants guarantee' the goods they sell Just as well as mailorder
houses There is not a local merchant who will not treat yon right Give
him a chance nud l.f will upput'iate it

How to Build Up or Tear Down
By J. O. LEWIS
The Home Merchant Has Earned Support.
WHY are communities, towns and cities? Have you ever asked your
self this question? Did you think they Just happened, or had you
ever thought that there wns a special need for them? In the be
ginning of time as far back as history takes us we find that MEN
HAVE BAN'DKD TUEMSELVHS TOO ETHER FOR MANY AND Oli
VIOUS REASON'S, chief among which are the benefits to be gained from
organized society as a social, Intellectual, spiritual and commercial center.
Collectively we are strong, forceful and nggresslve and possess power and
means to attain a growth which will give to us and our progeny opportunities
for better living to develop our moral, spiritual and intellectual life, the things
for which we were created.
THEREFORE THE SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS OF EVERY CITI
ZEN OF ANY COMMUNITY LIES IN THE INTEREST HE TAKES IN
THAT COMMUNITY AND THE GOOD WORK HE CAN, DO TO ASSIST
IN ITS UPBUILDING.
Now, then, if we are to succeed us individuals and as a community we
must not only strive for our own personal success nnd welfare, BUT MUST
GIVE OF OFF. WORK AND SUBSTANCE UNSELFISHLY TO HELP
Everything we do to help In the- upbuilding and advancement of our city
we do Just that much toward our own personal success. No man can live and
prosper unto himself alone. FOR WE ARE INTERDEPENDENT, and,
realizing this, If we as citizens will all unite nnd pull together for the common
good we will prosper as a city and consequently as individuals.
We'd paved streets and sidewalks, good sewerage system, thoroughly en
forced sanitary laws, well regulated and energetic police force, competent Are
fighting equipment mid rigid building regulations are economic necessities and
therefore they more largely affect us as a community than as individuals.
But beyond this and underlying it nil and upon which rests the foundation of
the whole is THE SUCCESS OF THE BUSINESS MAN. This man makes
an investmei t. goes Into some kind of business to manufacture or sell goods
puts his uiol.-v nt stake, employs labor and begins his work to build better.
THIS MAN IS THE CORNERSTONE OF THE COMMUNITY the man
you should rally around and support
the cucccc3 of a town depends on the success of its
business men. while the success of the business men
depe:tp :m f-'pfort they receive from the people at
large. each being, however, dependent one on the other.
No ineri h: i t can succeed without the pntronage of the public. He is abso
lutely and entirely dependent on the custom of each and every Individual who
has a penny t spend, the little mite of each, taken In the aggregate, makin ;
the volume tin which he runs his business. The merchant, having plenty of
competition, must, in order to get the people's patronage, figure his prices clos.
nnd offer to tliein th very best inducements possible.
The merchant pays large rentals, taxes, privilege licenses, insurance, be
sides employing many clerks and assistants, In order to' maintain and conduct
his business in sueli a manner as to meet your approval, nnd to succeed let me
emphasize it n.'aiii II E MUST HAVE YOUR PATRONAGE TO MAKE
HIS lll SlNESS PAY.
This community has some ns.flne stores every kind and conducted by as
tine a set of men us you will find anywhere on the face of the globe liberal,
big hearted, progressive men.. No better retail stores, no better wholesale or
jobbing houses, no better banks, no better mills, no better schools, no bet
ter churches, no better municipal or public utilities, can bo found anywhere
than right here iu your home town, all absolutely nil made possible only by
and through the co-operation and generous giving of the business men.
But my good friends, with all of these extraordinary accomplishments,
there nre some things being done today which nre STUMBLING BLOCK?
IN THE PATH OF OUR GREATER GROWTH and further develop
mentdifferences, if you please, which we must reconcile and overcome If we
are to continue to grow and prosper.
To be continued under the title. "HELP YOURSELF BY HELPING YOUR
How to Build Up or Tear Down
By J. O. LEWIS
Help Yourself by Helping Your Town.
THE attitude yon maintain toward your home town Its business men
and its institutions is reflected in the success or failure of the same.
The success and happiness of every citizen In any community lie
in the Interest he takes in that community and the good work he can
Ho to assist In its unbuilding. EVERYTHING YOU DO TO nELP IN
THE ADVANCEMENT OK YOUR OWN COMMUNITY YOU DO JUST THAT
MUCH TOWARD YOUR OWN PERSONAL SUCCESS. No man cm
live and prosper nnto himself alone, for you nre Interdependent, and, realizin ;
this, as good citizens, you should unite and pull together for the common
good, nnd, doing this, you will prosper as a community nnd as Individuals.
NO TOWN CAN STAND STILL. IT MUST EITHER GO FORWARD
OR DECLINE, AND IT IS UP TO YOU TO SAY WHICH IT WILL BE.
Some towns hustle nnd grow that is, the people hustle nnd the town
grows. They get the habit of boosting until every citizen becomes a booster,
and pretty soon its reputation spreads and it becomes known far and wide as
a good town, while others lapse into a state of Innocuous desuetude an easy
rock along manner that soon classes that particular place as a dead one.
If you are knocking and complaining stop it. Nothing hurts a town more.
If you cannot say something good don't sny anything, and. above all. don't
knock. If you nre not a booster become one.
The success of the retail merchant depends on the patronage of his home
people, the home Jobber is largely dependent on the patronage of his home
retailer, the banks are dependent likewise on the success of all. while the, suc
cess and happiness of the people depend on the success of the business men.
Now, oue of the greatest injuries you can do your home town or com
munity to the business men who are dependent on your pntronage is to order
your goods from mall order bouses or patronize merchants in other towns
Every dime sent from your community to a mail order bouse t removed en
tirely from local circulation. Its principal nud interest nre both gone, whereas
the money seiit with the home merchant goes immediately into circulation
nnd in due course comes back to you.
THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ANNUALLY ARE BEING 8ENT TO MAIL
ORDER HOUSES FROM THIS COMMUNITY, THUS DEPRIVING HOME
MERCHANTS OF THEIR RIGHTFUL PATRONAGE.
And yet, do mntter how much the home merchnnt Is dependent on the
patronage of his home people, he Is supposed to give and to aid in every work
undertaken for the materlnl betterment of the towu. and he does, being often
coerced into giving by the demands of bis customers, fearing to offend them
because of the fear of loss of their pntronnge.
UNLIKE YOUR HOME MERCHANT, MAIL ORDER HOUSES PAY NO
TAXES OR PRIVILEGE LICENSE TO DO BUSINESS IN YOUR COM
MUNITY. NEITHER DO THEY CONTRIBUTE TO YOUR CHURCHES.
SCHOOLS, PUBLIC ROADS, CHARITIES OR ANYTHING ELSE, AND.
ABOVE ALL, THEY GIVE NO EMPLOYMENT TO ANY ONE IN YOUR
FAMILY OR HOME TOWN.
You want your schools kept up, your churches supported, your streets kei t
In repair, your town properly policed nnd protected by 'a good fire tlghtlicr
equipment etc. In other words, you want your town to prosper, be well rtri,
and the people to be happy nnd contented. YET IF YOU ARE SENDING
YOUR MONEY TO OTHER INSTITUTION'S IN OTHER CITIES ANN
TOWNS YOU ARE DEFEATING TnE VERY OBJECT FOR WHICH
Now. this town building Is a serious matter a great big proposition ar t
If yon nre not treating it its business :nen-fairly you ore not treating your
self fairly. Yon nre undermining the very foundation of your well being.
