AN APPEAL TO COM MUNITY LOYALTY It. will not be long until the holidnv shopping will be in full swing, and be fore it opens we wish to have a few words with our fellow citizens on the quetion of how and where this holi day money is to be spent. Are you going to patronize the mail order houses this year as perhaps many of you did last year# Or are you go ing to, if necessary, even make a slight sacrifice and stick to home people? Whence came the money that you are intending to send to that mail or uer concern f Did it come from the city in which that concern is located? Not by a long shot. Tf you are a farm er it is the product of the soil. What soil? Why, the soil of your communi ty. Now you, as a practical fnrmer, know full well the results of the ruin ous practice of taking everything from your land and returning nothing to it. You know tlint this practice must soon er or later impoverish your soil and destroy your source of income. Can't you realize that in sending your money away from home you are doing to the community just what you would not think of doing to your farm -—robbing it of its productive power? You certainly are. Every dollar sent away from your community robs it of just that much of its power for good. But perhaps you are not a farmer, but a mechanic, or trader. Then the responsibility rests even more heavily upon you to keep your money in tho home channels of trade, because all of it came from the hard earnings of your neighbors and friends, und you have no right to deprive the communi ty of the good it can do if circulated therein. Yes, we say no right. No man has any _ right to be disloyal to his com munity. Deprive any man entirely of community support and he becomes a parish—worse than a Robinson Crusoo, for he is among his kind, but not of them. What loneliness could be more terrible! If, then, you are thus dependent on your neighbors and friends, do you not owe them an equal allegiance! Are they to consult your interests while you ignore theirs! This were ingrati tude of the basest sort. Just suppose, you patron of the mail ordor house, that for a period of twelve months every citizen of your county followed your example and did all his trading away from home! What condi tion would your county be in! Would there be a solvent merchant; in it! Not one. What of your schools, your churches, and all tho civilizing insti tutions of our land! They might still survive if you bare all tiic expense— not otherwise. > Think seriously of these things von patron of the mail order house. Realize that if you have the right to deprive your community of your money, all your neighbors have an equal right— then imagine the consequences. Don't be un ingrate. If you have a. dollar to spend, spend it at home. Thus it stays and works in the only spot on (tod's earth in which you are interested. Send it away and it is gone forever. GOT AN ELK Morris Watson and Joe Cnrrutli have returned from a short but suc cessful hunt in the Island Park roue try. On their second day out thev motored to within about fifteen miles of the haunts of a big elk and never left his trail until they got him. He weighed linn pounds dressed and his sweet and tender meat was enjoved bv number of the hunters' friends.
