The St. Tammany Farmer
D. H MASON - - - - - Edtor and Proprietor Entered at the Covington postoffice as Second-Class Matter. IT CAN'T BE DONE. The slogan, "It can't be done," would lock any man within the nar row confines of impossibilities all his life. It would shut out the light Si pro-ress frori any community. It would leave the ripened wheat to ,e gathered with a sickle and puch the flivver into the eternal and ever i;csting future. Yet this is the slogan that gets nearest to the heart of a great imhly peopel. The overcoming of difficulties, the solving of hard Iroblleuv ant ti P sacrifices that must be made in doing the extraordinary things of life do not appeal to the average man, and the great accom iplishinicits cof human endeavor result from the imagination and vision 4,f some one wOn is a crank until he becomes a success. Then he is a genius or a great mlan. We Vbelieve investigation would show that every city that has become great was s:aried onl its road to success by one or a very few men. And -ome of these cities had no more natural advantages than Covington las tc-day. If every man and woman in Covington would say, "It shall be a greater city," and pledge their energy to its growth, to adminiistrative support, sanitation, beautification and enforcement of laws, and would cheerfully give such hfnancial assistance to good movements as they could afford, not only could they be astonished by. the growth of the town, but they x ould realize greater individual prosperity through the new opportuni ties affcl ded. The following clipping from a daily paper will illustrate this. It is a good lessoim fur those who are inclined to believe it can't be done: "The towa of Warrenton, which has only 927 population by this sear s ,e:;s.;s, holds the North Carolina record for 'owning itself.' The as:'ss~c:l value of its property is $1,800,000. Some thirty-five years ago * built a railway three miles long connecting it with War ren P'ii:ns .:i the Seaboard Air Line, and has ever since operated the road, Nhic'h gives the town an average net profit above all ex penses of $,,000 a year. "The tcwa owns a water plant and sewerage system which cost $112,000; an ice plant of forty tons daily capacity, with a cold stor age sec.:ou; a power and' light plant which cost $40,000, and is building a $120,000 hotel, with laundry, bakery and refrigerating plant. Recently a $100,000 bond issue for a public school building was voted and this will be in readiness for the autumn opening of the schools next year. The women voters, who put through the school bond Irsue in very handoame style, will now take steps to have a laundry built by the town, this also to be ready in 1921."
