HOW XO KILL A
I have solected this cap
tion because it will attract
more attention than if I
wrote it "How to Keep a
Town Alive." Everybody
thinks he knows how to kcop
a town alivo--but how to
kill ,a town that's another
question. The average man
wouldn't know exactly how
to go about it. "What do I
want to kill a town for, any-
way T" ho would ask.
Towns are an abnormal
excrescence on the body pol
itic. Cities and towns are
tho breeding grounds of vice
nnd crime. They attract all
that is ugly and unlovely in
communal life. At the same
time, they organize and con
solidate activities that up
lift and refine tho race. They
present advantages in cul
ture and education which the
country cannot supply.

from the commercial and so

"What is the use of trying

No use at all. It is best
to keep it alive with honest

easy to kill a town, and
when you see how easy it is
to kill it you will know how

displayed her "bargain."
The news of the "bargain"
spread from one home to
another until the wliole com
munity was infected. There
is a strange fascination
about "long distance shop
ping" which no woman
wants to enjoy alone. Con
nections with catalogue
houses soon were estab
lished by a hundred women.
Tho genn spread with great
rapidity and soon put a
crimp in the business of
every merchant in town. A
constant stream of money
going out to mail-order
houses year after year soon
sapped the life blood of the
town. And this woman who
inoculated here neighbors
with the catalogue habit
had no thought of killing her
town. She wonders why her
boys finally left the town
and yielded to the lure of the
big city and its sky-scraper
mail-order houses. Respons
ibility for the decay of her
own community and for the
loss of her boys is farthest
from her thoughts.

the catalogue germ that
worms its way with serpen
tine secrecy into the brain
of a community and that
is newspaper advertising.
Surely the merchant can
print just as attractive pic
tures as the mail-order
houses can print in their
catalogues. Surely the local
merchant can describe his
wares just as convincingly
as they are described in a
catalogue. If he can't he
should employ an expert
a man who can combine the
lure of wordcraft with the
skill of a salesman. With
printers' ink he can pull a
town out of the "slough of
despond." He can match
the personality, acquaint
ance and reputation of the
local merchant against the
lure of long-distance shop
ping. The right kind of
newspaper advertising will
stop the ravages of the cata
logue house and will keep
at home the brain and brawn
and enterprise that are ne
cessary to keep a town from
falling into decay.
