For those of us who live in Algorra, a few words about the common horse sense of doing business with neighbors is not amiss. All Algona business firms join in paying the "cost of upkeep" Of the community - the school district, the city government, the county government. What is beneficial to one is beneficial to all. It is simply "good business to do business at home", and one thoughtful effort in co-operation leads to'another. Who knows? Perhaps the cycle comes back to you and quickly. Nobody gives much of a darn about the area in which we live except ourselves. Therefore, If we partially support other cities, other counties, we are only taking something from ourselves, something that will never be replaced - a flow of business that is a "must" if county and local business firms are to survive. YES, INDEED, IT IS "GOOD BUSINESS TO DO BUSINESS AT HOME". THESE PROGRESSIVE BUSINESS FIRMS IN ALGONk AP- YOUR PATRONAGE, PAST AND PRESENT, AND LOOK FORWARD TO SERVING YOU IN THE FUTURE.
