LET PRIDE BEGIN AT HOME
We all take pride in our country
because it is a great country—the
greatest of them all.
Bu; what constitutes this country?
The forests, and the fields, and the
mountains, and the valleys, and the
prairies, and the lakes and the rivers,
and the hamlets, and the villages, and
the towns, and the cities, and all of
the human and other life that exists
therein and thereon.
This town is a part of this country,
and our pride of country should ex-
tend to the community in which we
live.
Our individual homes are a part
of this town, and our pride of coun-
try should begin with the homes in
which we live.
If we make them as near perfec-
tion as our resource? will permit,
then the town and the state and the
country reflects the warmth and the
glory of our firesides.
We look at the big cities and mar-
vel at their immensity—^at their
wealth, and their enterprise, and
their growth.
But do we remember that before
these cities became great they were
mail, even as we are,
Their citizens saw the opportuni-
ties that were before them, and were
quick to grasp them. Pride in their
improvements impelled them to press
onward and make other and ^greater
As the giant oak sprung from the
little acorn so have these great cities
sprung from what were once little
hamlets and villages—often ftrom
barren wastes of land.
But they did not spring up of their
own accord.
The people of the tiny hamlets took
pride in their homes, and their sur-
roundings, and worked to make them
better and more prosperous. It is
tiiis stalwart quality of thrift and
energy that has made them what they
are today—metropolitan centers of
population and commerce which are
known all over the civilized world.
And the root of it all was pride.
Few things are impossible to a
people who have a will to accomplish.
But without the will to perform no
great ending will come from little
beginnings.
Let us consider the future of this
town—but let us begin with pride in
the home, and the improvement we
make therein.
Today we are small, but there is
always a tomorrow—and tomorrow is
ever flowing with new hopes of ad-
vancement and achievement.
Our geographical situation is such
, that we may never become a great
V city, but it does not prevent the
possibilities of making of our home
town a paradise in which to live.
■ Pride in the home has done it for
other towns.
It can do it for ours.
Why not?
Billie Adams, “Hampshire Billy”
was through here Saturday on his
way home after being at the State
Fair, having in charge the Dewey
exhibits. He said Dewey won 21st
place, and received 150.00 premium.
While away he went to his old home
in Jackson county, Texas, where he
had not visited for twenty-five years
and says he met a number of his old
friends, saw a fair that was simply
great (not the “pumpkin rhow” of
years ago) and altogether had a de-
lightful time.

Dear Aunt Alice:—
Please change the address of my

have made my plans to attend An-
tioch College of that place for the
ensuing year. Please make good i

It is useless to expect the people
to do their Christmas buying early
unless the merchants do their holi-
day advertising early. Just a hint,
gentlemen.

An eighteen year old son of C. B.
Cotton died last week of typhoid
fever at his home west of Grimes.
The mother had been taken home
from the hospital at Elk City a short
time before his death. A daughtor
and another son are quite ill we hear.
Friends of Dan McGrady will be
glad to know he is getting along as
well as could be expected. He is
under the care of Dr. Bell of Fort
Worth, and is now in Bridgeport,

Miss Jeanette Peterson, field sec-
retary of the Christian Service Lea-
gue of America, of Wichita, Kansas,
plans were discussed for raising
the work. This league is not sec-
tarian, has received and cared for as
wards 1,000 children; helped more
than 5,900 children in their homes;
372 mothers to support their own
chldren; 570 boys and girls over six-
teen years of age; and 742 sick in
hospitals and private homes. They
say their work is a work of read-
justment, reconstruction and rehab-
ilitation in society of normal Indi-
viduals.
When one thinks of good home
baking totay, there is always a men-
tal piiture of grandmother’s goodies.
But there has been as much advance
in the gentle art of home baking as
there has been ill sciences.
The Educational Department of
the Dr. Price Baking Powder Factory
is doing great work in the improve-
ment of home baking. The most
helpful results of this work have
been embodied in a new cook book
which is said to be the last word in
baking perfection.
That this book may reach every
home, every grocer has been author-
ized to present a copy of the New
Dr. Price Cook Book to all purchas-
ers of Dr. Price’s Phosphate Baking
Powder.
