FRIDAY, DECEMBER 12. 1924 THE EVENING GAZETTE PORT lERVIS, N. Y. FIFTEEN Communii Let Local Pride Find Expression at Home Local pride is based on affection for the place in which you live and is al most as natural a sentim e n t as family pride, says the Youth’s Companion. Like family pride, It may be useful and stim u la ting, or it m ay be futile and deadening. ^ 1 ^ A proper local pride m anifests itself In study of the history of the commun ity and its founders, in a desire for a thorough knowledge of the institutions, industries and people of the commun ity, and in acquiring fam iliarity not only with the topography and the ex ternal aspects of the place but also w ith its spirit. Anyone whose local pride Is strong enough to impel him to such study will become imbued with an ambition to contribute to the im provem ent of the com m u n ity; he will be in his turn one of the makei-s of its history. Local pride th a t finds its expression a t home is an admirable trait. There is, however, a kind of local pride that is frequently exhibited only by people who are away from home, and that is not to be commended. It is usually a m ark of narrow ness and prejudice. A man need not sacrifice or abate his love of home in order to recognize the superior claims tc general interest that some other place o.\.' rs. Provinciali.'^m, as local pride is likely to be called when it expresses itself away from home, is usually bumptious, hyper critical and petty. It retards the men tal growth of the man who suffers from it, for he is seldom one who at home shows any local pride of a con structive character. r Kansas C itys Exam p le T h e greatest incentive to civic beauty is the thing th a t inspires worthy emulation. K ansas City’s resi dential development has grown from small beginnings deliberately planned by individuals to promote public inter est, to show by example w h a t could be done with the small lot or the pre tentious homesite, to dem o n strate that beauty may be attained by little addi tional expense and that w h a te v er the additional cost, It is the best p a r t of the investment. And thus it has come to pass that K a n sas City has made a reputation, in a comparatively few years, for the beauty of its homes and their sur roundings. Its example has influenced many other cities. B u t the greatest force of th a t example is right here at home.—^Kansas City Star. orud T u n k ina th in k s it is getting about tim e to m a k e it read: life, li berty and a p lace to park.

The home is so much the heart and soul of life that the sum of existence, for the average m an or woman, is very nearly the m easure of success or failure in home making. If the home is happy the -world usually looks bright and well worth while. If the home is not cheerful | and comfortable life is heavily handi capped. This is so true and the truth is so vital to the state, the whole nation, th a t whatever tends to build up and guard, beautify and make more attrac tive, the homes of a great city or of any large community, is of special im portance to the public, near and far. W h a t one city does in that field may well prove the source of sim ilar gains for contentment and happiness in many Other places.—Cleveland News-Leader. :\j^ • I; Finds ns in oiur new quarters where we have ample Ip room 1© display oar large stock of goods at prices | | aneqaafed anywhere in our city.
