elusion, it would - mean that toe
smaller towns would cease to grow,
and perhaps retrograde. If this hap
pened, property values would decline,
the greatest source of support for the
churches, the. school, and other soyal
institution would be destroyed. No
one would want to live in a town like
that. Yet that is the sort of a town
one is tending to make when he con
stantly sends away from home to buy
what he could buy at home, une
should consider it his or her duty to
buy at home, even though it may
cost a little more, tor one obtains nu
living in the community .and every
dollar he spends at home comes back
to him in some form.
Most buying away from home is
through thoughtlessness. The mail
order houses have made it easy by
putting well illustrated catalogues
into the home. Many orders no
doubt leave this section because the
people are not constantly reminded
that they can be had at home. A
little advertising on "the part of the
merchants and a little more reflection
ofl the part of the buyer before he
sends off that next order for some
thing that can be bought right here
at home, will make this' a much more
prosperous community. Let's be loyal
in buying as well as with words of
praise about our town. The Chero-

1 It has been decided to hold the first
co-operative cr.r load poultry sale for
the season on. Wednesday. April 9th.
There . may be some : farmers who
would rather have the sale at an ear
lier date. But 'we want to be sure of
enough to make a car load. Where
possible it would be a good idea to
put up the thin chickens to be sold
and feed on milk and other fattening
teeds tor at ltfast a week before the
sale.. This -should add weight and
quality. Those w.hb are planning to
bring poultry to the sale will greatly
help by writing County Agent At-
rendale a card telling him what yot
expect to bring. It you are too care
less to co-operate please do not howl
and growl whervyou are disappointed
in the way things have gone.
