place at reasonable rent. He found one.
cr more locations that ho liked, but the
rents asked were entirely too much.
This is cofci the way o build up a town.
All people who wanltUo establish an en

encouraged. And in no case should
they be driyen away by high rents or
any thing iof the kind. Give tbem a
warm welcbme, show them around and
