The trade territory of a town is
not all dependent upon the dis¬
taitcc neighboring • ,, trading ,
points. The trade territory de-
pends upon the enterprise of the
merchants and the residents of
the town. If a town does not

will grow as it is forced to. But
if the merchants go after busi¬
ness in the surrounding country,
advertising in every possible way.
a&d making good every word of
their advert ising, trade will come
from, wn everiiicreasing radius,
the town will gain a reputation
for being awake and it will forg<
to the front. It is the men in
the town and not altogether the
