What country towns need
more than all else Is bar-
Life is too short, and time
too valuable to be harboring
little differences and knifing
one another, or adopting a
picayunish policy with
reference to your town and
its needs.
[f you want your town to
grow, you must grow.
If you hope to draw the
public, you must be public
spirited and you're not
public spirited unless you
support your paper.
A well advertised town
gets the business. Your
town is advertised through
the local paper
It reaches the people you
want to reach. The news
paper is the best advertising
medium we know.
A town without a news
paper is ready for the under
taker. Support your local
paper. When you boost
your paper you boost your
town and your business.
