THE HOL!0v SEASON IS A GOOD TIME FOR PATRIOTIC
CITIZENS TO BEGIN TO HELP BUILD UP PLATTS
MOUTH BY BUYING OF HOME MERCHANTS.
The trend of modern times is toward the abolishment of the
smaller towns tho.?e of less than 10,000 population. Each large
city roaches out and takes in the trE.de of the towns smaller than it and
?o on down the lino. PIatt.:mouth people buy things at Omaha which
they coud buy at home as well, and in most cases, better. Omaha
folks buy at Chicago, with no belter results than they could obtain in
their own city. Chicago bjV ones co to New York, while New Yorkers
spend their surplus funds in London arel Paris.
The way that towns like Flattsmouth citizens can help to combat
this movement is to bj;in at home. Make your motto: "'I believe in
my community first and then in the community next to mine." If
ycu rannct buy what you want in Plattsmouth then 12:0 to Omaha, but
try the Plartsmouih stoves first and be sure before you leave home.
