" . THF HOME TOWN. By NELS DARLING. (Copyrighted.) President Wilson, in an arti- cle in the July number of the World's Work, makes this state- ment: "If America discour- ages the locality, the country, the self-contained towns, she will kill the nation." Many of these self-contained towns are losing in population, are going backward, while the great cities are growing by leaps and bounds. In the article above referred to, Pres. Wilson adds: "You know what the itality of Ameri- ca consists of. Its vitality does not lie in New York, nor in Chi- cago, it will never be sapped by anything that happens in Saint Loius. Nearly every city, great and small, every town, large or little, sprang into existence as a trad- ing center, as a place for the ex change of commodities and thus became, not only the commer- . cial, but the social center for the people of the country tributary to it.
