vifiDXESDAT, MARCH 13, 1918. THE; IJAU-I uot), r- A. IP ALL OUR BUSINESS WERE SENT TO TOE MAIL ( ORDER HOUSES, WHAT OF THIS CITY? If -we f*rnit th« big mil order bouses to drive our bui'inui men ont DC competition, whut will w. hare left? A j)»e« oC *mptr (tore buildings, an undwir»W« place in which to lire. If the mil order houi;w tcccmpllth their .pnrpoM it it possible th»t railroad interests will decide there is not sufficient btwinMi to warrnt the stopping ot trains here--because there will be no reaion, then, for traveling men to stay orer in our town, no freight to be delivered to .our stores. k In snch cases we will be trying,to sell our property, bnt will find no- buyers, for who will think it a good investment to buy property in a dead town? But this i« Just what we must expect if we keep sending our dollars to the mail order houses, for it is only the busint« p-f the town that makes the town povaible. When we «nd practically all of our business, to the mail order homes in the citiei there will no longer be a necessity for, or a reason for, a town here. It all reiolves itself into the qnes- tion:-"SHALL, WE HAVE A PROSPEROUS TOWN, GOOD REAL ESTATE VALUES. GOOD WAGES AND GOOD MUNICIPAL DEVELOPMENT, OR SHALL WE HAVE A DEAD ONE, "WITH PIGS ROOTING IN THE PRINCIPAL STREETS, STORE BUILDINGS EMPTY AD WITH "FOR SALE" SINGS! spua UP, NO LIGHTS AND NO FHUp PROTECTION. IT ALT, BESTS WITH US. WE ARE THE ONES TO DECIDE." Common MDSC and good judgment teJl ua to protect our own interests. If we dont, who will? What can we expect from toe mail order houses after they shall have received our money and the local store keepers have been put out of the running? Shall we expect help and assistance from the mail order monopoly? "We all know, that the mail order houses do not pay any ot our local taxes. They do not support our schools, or churches, or help to pay for our lighting the streets or for our fire department Every dollar spent at home means added"wealth, added prosperity, added real estate values and added facilities of all kinds. Every dollar sent to the mail order houses means more unfair competition for our storekeepers and less taxes toward the support of our community. "Which do. we prefer? We must make the decision. Are we for or against our community? LET'S MAKE IT A LIVE TOWN BY KEEPING OUR MONEY IN CIRCULATION AMONG OUR' OWN BUSINESS MEN. evening at 7:30. Rev. W. B. Purnell-j in charge. · · .
