Another point impressed on any

Home Town Talks!
Don't be the man who put the
sit in cily.
Building good houses builds a
good town.
Save a little money anil save a
lot of worry.
A nice front porch has prevented many an old maid.
When someone plans to help
the town,  plan to help the plan.
The plans a man can have for
the future aro house plans.
Funny how hard coal or hard
wood will soften a hard  winter.
If you really love your home
town don't flirt with the mail
order business.
Don't spend all your time telling what you could do if you had
some.
A good way to make the world
better is to begin with the home
town.
A goad town will do more to
keep the boys at home than good
advice.
A town is like a girl; it's a
wonder what a little fixing up
will do for it.
Opportunity knocks once at
each man's door; better be at
home when it comes.
If you would like to have some
body working for you put a little
money in the bank.
The world owes every man a
living; but the street corner is a
poor collection agency.
Plaster your houses and everybody will follow your example.
Lath and the world laths with
you.
Many a youg man goes away
to seek his fortune when fortune
is seeking for him at home.
It isn't very long after a wise
young man reaches the marrying
age before he reaches the parson
age.
Don't be a grouch; everybody
in this town wishes you well-
even the doctor.
If you will consider the men in
this town who are well off, you
will find that most of them made
their money here.
You have to be a citizen in
order to vote; but you have got
to do a good deal more than vote
in order to be a citizen.
After four thousand years man
has never found anything to
make him happier than a wee
house with a wee wife in it.
When a wagon gets into a rut
there is nothing to do but put
your shoulder to the wheel; it is
the same with a community.
The big things weren't done
in the big towns; the greatest
poem in the English language
was written in a country churchyard.
It improves the sou)) to throw
a little pepper in it; and it is the
same way with a town.
