SBull In this day of progress clean.
liness is a business asset,thou iu
the beginning it had to be forced
upon many concerns by law.
Now no one likes to trade in a
dirty store. It is unattractive.
uninviting and unsanitary. Now
adays an untidy store that does
much business is an exception.
Merchants are giving special at.
tertion to making their stores
attractive and modern in appear
ance, and competition compels
all branches of business to study
carefully every detail fully with
this view, It is very different
however, with towns. yet there
is a growing tendency for civic
' in Cities are fast learning the im
nally portsnaceof clean streets, well
1 kept parks and cemeteries. They
dy are realising that the cleaner and
the more beautiful they can make
wary their towa the greater will be its
es e progess. People seeking loca
been tions for homes or to go into
n' business judge a town's business
oted and other opportunities by its
developement along civic lines.
A sloppy town is generally a
poor business town and a poor
town to live in.
A clean town with good streets
ane sidewalks, well lighted well
*kept lawns, shade trees and a
feeling of civic pride among its
citisens is a town that stands for
