Here are ten reasons, that are good, why people in and around Connellsville should trade here: FIRST--A town that is good enough for a man to live in is good enough for him to trade in. SECOND--The good farmer puts everything back into the soil that he can. Likewise the good citizen should put all he can into kis own community. THIRD--If the farmer will patronize the merchant, then the merchant will in turn patronize the farmer, and mutual patronage brings mutual prosperity. FOURTH--By keeping Connellsville's earned money in Connellsville there will be no danger of hard times or financial stringencies FIFTH--It is unreasonable that money earned in and around Connellsville should be sent to Chicago, St. Louis or New York; there to build beautiful churches, schools and sky-piercing buildings. Where is the money coming from to build these things for us? SIXTH--Every dollar invested or spent in Connellsville helps Connellsville and eon- sequentb you get a. dollar's worth, while every cent sent out of this county helps some other city or community. SEVENTH--Community spirit is the greatest city builder known. This campaign reaches community spirit above all things else. EIGHTH--Intense cultivation of Connellsville's resources and advantages will make it a very wealthy city. * NINTH--It is to the individual benefit of every citizen of this community to trade in Connellsville. It is the only sound, economic principle, since out of the pockets of home industries are paid the taxes that support the commonwealth. TENTH--Connellsville is a "farm",,waiting for cultivation. Dollars planted here will bring in a surprisingly large harvest in a very short time. It will mean more jobs, bigger salaries, more homes and prosperity for all. Citizenship and patriotism consist o' something more than voting, paying taxes and cheering the flag. In case of war, could you respect a neighbor who deserted-your flag, joined the enemy and fought against the country which had given "him freedom, opportunity and happiness? You can't afford to desert Connellsville in which you live--from which you get your living. The welfare of your hoiXe should be your first thought because you rise or fall with it. Don't be a slacker when you buy; buy from these merchants. A Great Combined Movement by Great People Will Secure a Phenomenal Boost for Yourself and THESE MERCHANTS.
