An association of earnest citizens
with modern Ideas could get this towu

has advantages that other places are
without. It has, on the other hand,
disadvantages that other places are,
happily, without. It has a population
that is not easly moved. It has the
objection always brought against coal
region towns that Is said to be under
mined. It has never had what might
be called a stablo local government,
certainly not one that had tho real
power to help along the cuuso of pro

removed. The "undermined" scare Is
without real foundation. Our popula
