Wo were not ut nil disappointed In tho short tlmo that It took to read tho nrtlclo, Indeed wo liked It so much that wo want to pass on to tho readers of this column ionic of tho good things Hint tho writ er said: Tho following is thcroforo taken verbatim from tho Illuminating nrtl clo: It any enemy wero to invndo this country, ho would bo rcslstod. Wo would volunteur Just ns In tho days of former Invasions. Wo would bent the drums nnd orgnnlzo companies, regiments, armies and drive out tho Invader, Wo would not rlso up an Individu als, each with his own plan of nttnek; wo would organize Into an army with one concerted plan of nttnek. Individualism brings ndmlrntlon, but co-operation brings salvation. Individualism ran walk from Chicago to Now York In n month, perhaps; but corporation can tnko you In day nnd for less money. n enemy Is Invading every small town, city and rural community. It Is Tho Lure ut The City. It fevers the young peoplo nnd they yield Just ns fast as they ran got nwny. Hit tho villages are barely holding their own or nro shrinking. They aro becoming In many Instances "tho culls" nnd "tho left-overs", whllo tho ambition tho red blood nnd tho hustle livo been token cnptlvo nnd nro yearly bo Ing led to prison of city life. Much of It is exile In dingy hull bedrooms Tho Luro selects tho strongest and best. Tho city receives Its Influx. Hero nnd thuro one rises to distinction It Is tho country bred youth who docs win out, not tho city ono, for ho has started with mora strength from tho simpler Hie. They nro Jostled In tho crowd; thoy boo tho seamy hIiIo of life; thoy bco the easy morals nnd no qucstlons'nsk- ed; thoy sou temptation everywhere; they get lonely nnd dlscornged, nnd without homo Influences llttlo by little their moral moorings slip. Only tho young person with tho strongest character ran fight slnglehnndcd nnd n onu tlio temptations of u great city. (Jo to tho blear-eyed young man In u cheap fml&on or In tho street crowd listening to Homo blatant agitator, and you will find that ho camo from Kingman, Kits,, or from Dunkirk, Ohio. You will find that tho painted girl an tho street confer camo from Crystal Falls, Mich., or from Waco, ToxaB. If they had never Boon Chica go thoy would havo been saved from their degradation. Meanwhile tho worthy citizens of Kingman nnd Crystal Falls and Waco and Dunkirk read ot tho problems of tho city with merely Idlo curiosity. "That Isn't our problem. Thank Cod, wo hnvo none of It." O, how Kingman and Dunkirk and Crystal Falls and Waco need hump ing. Tho city should send them tho names of their own citizens that hnvo been thrown upon tho scrnphonp. Evory small town should bo furnish cd tho annual list of victims that woro taken right out of Its borders becnuso it was asleep with tho doors unlocked. Tho Invader is despoiling tho small towns ot their most precious product, tho young peoplo and yet tho smnll towns do not organlzo Into companies to resist. No drums bent, no flags fly, no r miles rlso up. So they nro helpless. They rely on Individual no tion, Each man works out his own plan. What wo havo said ot four towns Is true ot forty thousand. Tho citizens aro so wrappod up In Belt rlghtousiicss ' and self satisfaction thoy don't want to act. Thoy wont lino -up. Each man is Interested In himself and his business and his church, nnd too afton thinking Ills success is only to bo won as ho worsts his competitor, Each llttlo church la Incllnod to envy tho other churches The town Is not n town, but u collec tion of little cliques and .factious and clubs and parties. A now movement is started rJCbno church or faction tako lttCtho others will fight it; So Christianity nnd progress nro haltod at tho co-oporatlonUne. No, not all small towns. Horo.and -. i i . . i thoro ono Is waking up nud getting togothor. It tho small town Is to bq saved It miiBt get togcthor, Tho Luro of tho Luro of tho Country. Tho city offers bright lights, beau ty, animation, opportunity, Inspira tion, entertainment, All theso fire the young mind. What Is tho homo town offorlng? Loafers, tobneco Bplttlng tho streets, back number stores; fossilized folks cumbering tho hojcl office, depot nnd grocery with their checker-boards; n fow business men fighting each other. Tho small town must wnko up, muster Into nn army, n Homo Uuard army, by getting all together and working for the common good, to al ter tho young tho bright tights, beau ty, etc., etc. Tho small town must say to tho young people "Wo will glvo you all tho city can glvo nnd morn. Wo bcllcvo In you nnd wo wilt glvo you every opportunity to beconm happy nnd successful. This is your town, you must mnko It great; you must not desert your own." Then tho small town must go deep Into its pocket nud heart to provide tho advantages. It must movo tho city to tho country. It must build tip churches, schools nnd u great Ly to urn nnd Chnutnuquit. Tho boys'lu tho barber shop and loafing iiround pool halls tho girls who giggle thr ough tho street nt night, these need their heads nnd hearts widened and to bco tho truo visions ot life. Thee nro tho crowds out on tho hlghwio nnd byways of your town Hint need to bo gathered In. Tho small town must havo every advantage. Illgglnsvlllo Advance. HATTi:nrn:i,iM!AVi:s.
