Buy at Home
The Things We Have
The best industry that can be brought to Caddo is one that can get its raw materials from farms nearby and make it into products that the world needs. Broomcorn will and does grow here, and the small factory of Mr. Odil could be made a large one if our people would buy at home. All the big acreage of Johnson grass may be made into mutton and milk that always have a ready sale. Mere wishing will accomplish nothing, but work will.
We can save our land by terracing, not by hoping.
We may have pecan orchards by planting and working, but not by envying those who have.
We can have a good town and county by trading at home, but not by buying in Chicago.
Let’s take advantage of things we have, rather than wishing for the impossible.
