When this is done, people from a distance will form a good opinion of the town and people and it will be an inducement for them tolocatewith us and become good substantial citizens. There is no better way to accomplish these things than to join the Community Club.

But men who have thought upon the matter and studied the functions of a Chamber of Commerce urge that it is the important factor in all of the city activities. Those who hold the Chamber of Commerce to be merely a-conrmercial body have not the right conception of the organization.

Is there any matter of vital importance to the city in a social, economic, educational, business, industrial way which has not been either initiated by the Chamber of Commerce or strongly supported by it?

The secret of getting wealth no secret. It is simply saving.

A man may get rich overnight by discovering an oil field, a gold mine, but he is more likely to get poor overnight. A few men win by gambling in wheat, corn, eggs, other commodities, but the greater number lose. There is but one sure, way to competence and to wealth and that way is by saving something of what is earned. And that way is open to every man: The poorest can walk it, the young man in any field of endeavor can travel it. The single man and the man of family can walk in that way.

Many think they cannot, many do not try, but the man who will, can. Do not let the cost of living eat up your entire wage or income. If you will but so resolve you can put by a certain sum every week, every month. And the smallest sum of money, saved, set to work, will grow to a quite respectable sum in a year. In ten years it will be a sum to surprise and delight, in twenty years, that's the average man's working years, the sum will be of sufficient size to insure comfort and leisure in declining years.
