HOME TOWN THOUGHTS.
People have to be reminded to
do things even if they want
very much to do them. You
have to call people to dinner be-
fore they come and advertising
is the dinner call that invites
people to the feasts of bargains.
The city where people speak
cordially to their neighbors is
the city where there are always
plenty of good neighbors to speak
The people who knock the
home town merchants who do
so much for the city's pros-
perity should knock on 'their
own wooden heads to avoid bad
Temple started the City Beau-
tiful campaign in Bell county
and in central Texas. She has
lost her enthusiasm for herself
but her influence lives many
times magnified in her little
neighboring city Bartlett which
is considered by visitors there
to be a perfect little gem of
Weauty and sanitation. Bartlett
may yet become the Rose City
of Texas for her roses are won-
derful and her fame is spread-
ing far and wide. All honor and
praise to the citizens who have
done so much and are now do-
ing all they can to make their
tbwn a better cleaner and more
Beautiful place in which to live.
' It is announced that the Mar-
ble Falls Textile Mills company
has completed its power plant to
drive the spindles in a 10000
spindle mill for the manufac-
ture of cotton goods. The com-
ing fall Texas cotton will be
turned into cloth. There should
be a thousand mills in Texas in-
stead of 28.
The devil always makes a
contract if possible with the
"best class of people in the minds
of the public as his agents. And
he generally succeeds. The devil
doesn't care a snap for the man
or woman who is without in-
fluence in their community.
Girls are leading boys by a
bg margin in the national "per-
fect attendance" school contest
now being conducted. Cheer
up boys Ye editor is also being
lead by one particular girl-and
has learned to like it.
The desire to own a home is one of the natural primal in-
stincts of every leal man and woman. Nq other sentiment ever
gets such a grip upon the human mind and heart as the vision of
a home of one's own. It has been man's sublime incentive in all
ages for greater effort. The basis of all his hopes and ambitions
has ever been his dream of wife and child and home.
History is packed with the achievements of men who have
been guided in their greatest efforts by this single star of hope
Home. Home is the sweetest word in human speech and for the
love and ownership of home men have stood without flinching
the hardest toil and torture that time and chance could bring
This picture of a home of love and peace has ever held the
youth to his task and urged him onward and upward through
hardship and discouragehient. It has ever been the source of in-
spiration for pure-minded women and has enabled them to with-
stand the severest hardships gladly for the preservation of that
which was to them more sacred even than life itself.
No one can estimate what civilization owes to man's dream
of a home of his own. The gratification of this deep-seated de-
sire and the toil and struggle and self-denial by which it is won
refiines elevates and ennobles. It inspires in men a self-respect
which in turn inspires in others a respect for them that makes
them better men and better citizens better husbands and better
fathers. It gives them a standing and influence as free-holders
in a community which nothing else can. Give every family a
home of their own with lawn and garden and trees and flowers
and crime will disappear and dishonarable deeds will become unknown.
Pay For A Home
Only about thirty-eight per cent of the American people own
their own homes. The remaining sixty-two per cent are paying

ceipts never comes back It is a permanent invest ment which
pays no dividends and can never be converted into cash or ex-
changed for anything of value.
Rent money will in a few years pay for the house rented
but the house still belongs to the landlord and the only thing left
in the possession of the renter is a bundle of rent receipts.
No family can ever acquire that deep-seated love and affec-
tion for a rented house which is naturally developed for a home
they own. There is little incentive to adorn and beautify the
house and lawn which belongs to another. But when the place
which shelters the family group is their own when they know
that no man has the right to raise the rent or disturb their peace
then the placo. where they dwell however lowly or humble it may
be becomes indeed their home. Every tree and shrub and flower
planted adds new charm to life and strengthens the ties that bind
the happy hearts.
How Rent Money Counts Up
This table shows what rent amounts to in ten fifteen and
twenty years with six per cent interest compounded annually and
gives an idea of the value of the house one can pay for by applying
the rent-paying habit to the task of purchasing a home.
