One evidence of the vitality of this village (Spencer) is the fact that there are no vacant buildings. This is often inconvenient for those who desire to rent a place to live in, but at the same time it shows that there is vigorous life in the place. When you go into a town and notice one fourth of the buildings labeled “to rent,” you seem to lose you grip on that place, and fell like sliding out and looking for a location where there is more indication of life, even if you are compelled to put up a shanty as a temporary home. You say there must be something going on if the town is crowded with people.
