In fact, it was unsatis iactory from several standpoints. Al most complete stagnation of the city's principal industry for a portion of the year and only a partial operation dur (ing a considerable portion of the year left their marks. The volume of busj ness done in the granite industry was only a small percentage of the normal ' because of conditions so well 'known as to need no presentation here. This slackening of income, of course, had its i effects on other lines of activity; and, in consequence, the entire community and its environs felt the 'effects, Bane's march forward was appreci' ably held up, and the closing days of the year find Barre still crippled to a considerable extent. , . But in spite of the depressing ef fects of one of the worst years indus trially Barre has ever known, the com munity faces 1923 with morale still strong and with a degree of optimism which has almost become synonymus with the ' name Barre To be sure, there are knockers, there are carpers, there are those who are prating that Barre will never come back. These latter pests are here, as -everywhere under adverse conditions. Over against them, however, are a multitude of peo ple whose faith in Barre and ia Barre's future have by no means been shaken and who will be the means of starting Barre off on another great stride to ward prosperity while the knockers, the carpers and the chatterers hang back in the harness, waiting to be pulled along. The optimists are in the saddle and they will continue to be. The reasons for the optimism are not hard to find. Barre is composed of a virile citizenship workers large ly instead of retired old people; Baire has a well-nigh illimitabb foundation of prosperity her granite; Barre has progressive merchants and other busi ness men; Barre has first-rate equip ment as a small municipality; Barre has fine schools; Barre has a sturdy generation about ready to enter into active participation in affairs; Barro has four good banking institutions, which have emerged from the year 1922 in remarkably good condition. These are a few of the reasons why optimism is the rule and they are also the groundwork for the "come back" that Barre is to have. Barre faces 1923 cheerfully. t . v uKv y: .
