on the way to the cemetery. Any
citizen who will do nothing for
his town is helping to dig the
grave. A man that curses the
town furnishes the coffin. The
man who is so selfish as to have
no time from his business to
give to city atfairs is making the
shroud. The man who will net
advertise is driving the hoarsK
The man who is always pulling
back from any public enterprise

The moil who is so stingy as to
be howling hard times preaches
the funeral and sings the doxolo-

as (follows: First, those who
oppose improvement. Second,
those who run it down to Strang
ers. Third, those who never
advertise their bu-iuess.
