•e city eecretery Mr. Fowler had
earned an enviable reputation for
Xaithfulnees tt duty, and it was

Robert Franklin Fourier was born
on February 14, 1S76, near Troup,
Smith county, Texas. At the age
of 15 lie came to Graham, and ocen-
pleted Me high school education here.
Later he attended the University of
Texes and the School of Engineering
at Valporaiso, Indiana.; When SI
ears of ago be volunteered for ser-
vice in the Spanish-American War,
serving in tha Engineering Corps.
On November 8, 1906, ho was mar-
ried to Mies Loube Garrett. To
this onion two children were born,
oth of whom survive him. Ho was
a faithful and oonsbtant member
of the Presbyterian Church. -

the few dollars I spend couldn’t make much difference to
anybody". ■ One individual, purchase might not have any
marked Affect. : Wt when the purchases of a large number
of citizens Are totaled it makes a difference and a very big
difference, . Since the printing business is our line we know
more about that than any other, sorwell thke that as an ex-
ample. Frequently we hear of-instances in whieh some
concern has apnt out of town to have letter heads, legal
blanks or other items printed, j There, are five printing,
Akops in Young county,-hay one of which would have done
the jobs at prices as low as could be secured elsewhere.
These printing shops pay taxes that he|£ support the coun-
ty and municipal governments and the schools of the coun-
ty. Their employees are loyal to. home institutions, and It
is natural that they should expect in return the patronage
and support p# their fellow citizens. In other lines of
business the same .situation-exists. The development of
any town depends upon the loyalty of its people. To spend
salary check or income in some larger city ia not a mani-
festation of loyalty. The next few mouths will probably
go down in history as a period of business recovery. The
rapidity of recovery in Graham will depend largely upon ‘
tbe support given to local business houses. Bay At Roma
