The Educational Service Supporting Local Interests
/ f O SEE. to hear, to taste, to touch and to smell are the five human senses, and
we who have the pood fortune of j ossessing them should develop a sixth,
COMMON SENSE, and thereby, support our local interests. This does not
apply to the wage earner alone, but it also applies to the merchants engaged in one
line of business, who go out of our home town to do their Inning in other lines.
MORAL: The man of sense will circulate his money for the betterment of
Trade with These Merchants and support our home industries.

Jane felt real relief at that, lie

behind her with a matter of fad re

of the price it would soon be bring

Within thirty minutes I'hil Marstlen
