Housing inspectors in many 'cities are doing their best to rid their cities of these disease factories and much good is being accomplished, but ignorance and carelessness continue to get in their work.

"OPPftRTTTNTTY" In all tho history of this southern land of ours there has never been a timb when "Opportunity" has been so Insistently knocking at the door as now. Everywhere the wheels of industry arc whirling, whilo the pick and plow are prepar- ' of effort, and ing to bring forth tho treasures of mine and field. By an unselfish "pulling together," good citizens may lay tho foundation and build the great city,of tomorrow out of the small town of today. FIFTEEN HUNDRED SOUTHERN TOWNS LIKE YOURS. Between the Potomao and the Gulf of Mexico there are fifteen hundred towns like yours. Some larger, somo'smaller. They inllude a larger percentage native-bor- n Americans than gny other similar area of the of entire United States. There is a larger percentage of church membership and church attendance, and there is a higher moral tone prevailing in the homes of these towns than in any other section of this groat country. Whenever a young man or young woman leaves one of these towns to seek his or her fortune ip one of the great cities," thoy leave behind them a better home and better influences than they will ever find elsewhere. YOU NEED YOUR BOYS AND GIRLS TO BUILD YOUR TOWN. You must hold our boys and girls by making the "old home town" the most attractive 6pot on earth. A "dead town" will never hold them. You have got to give them clean, decent amusement and entertainment, and you have got to give them a chance jfo'r as great a career at home as they think they can find elsewhere. THE BIG THINGS RIGHT AT HOME. There is an abundant opportunity right in your town and in the surrounding country for every one of your young men and young women to achieve the very greatest success. You need them in developing your natural resources, in promoting more scientific farming, in making better schools, in strengthening your churches, in building better roads, in promoting manufacturing enterprises, in methods of merchandising, in improving sanitary condibringing in tions, in beautifying your homes. THE BOOSTER CLUB CHAUTAU0.UA. Your town needs an annual Chautauqua. It is one of the things that helps to make a town a better place to live in. It is a creator of ideals and a sourco of inspiration.
