Elmer could be a town many times
her present size if the citizens would
get together and work harmoniously to
that end. We need more advertising
of our resources.—Elmer Record.
The Record has sounded the key-note.

with a number of other towns in Jack

The east side against the west, the
north against the south, and so on.
Nothing on earth is mere detrimental
to a town, and nothing will create dis-
sension, strife and discord quicker than
a condition of this character. Cut it
out snd get together.
