Your Home Town
The only way to build a town is for all to go hand-in-hand, every man to the wheel. Banish all feelings of discord, if any; let harmony prevail, and you are sure to prosper. Talk about your town, write about it, speak well of it, encourage your people at the head of municipal affairs, choke the croakers, beautify the streets in every way, patronize the merchants, refrain from sending outside for goods, advertise in its newspapers, favor home enterprise in every way, and if you can not think of some good word to say, just keep quiet. There is nothing to gain and everything to lose in slandering the home of your adoption. There are those who delight to oppose every enterprise advocated but upon investigation these men will be found to be the most despised of all.
