JIM: Wholesome advice, 1906 style
Submitted by JIM
There is no reasonable excuse for anyone to live in a town if he doesn't like it.
If you have no word of commendation to say for your town, its institutions or people, emigrate.
You won't stop the town clock by going away. The church and school bells will have the same musical ring; the little dogs will play as well; and the pure air, bright sunshine and sparkling water will have the same health giving properties.
Speak a good word for your neighbors if you can; if you cannot, don't everlastingly enlarge on their faults.
If you have become thoroughly disgruntled, move away; go some where, where things will suit you.
