|God made the earth out of star dust and then
made the people for it out of just any old scraps that were lying around
handy. But when he came to make Fillmore He
had more practice and decided to do a better job than ever before. So He
picked out the very best people on earth and caused them to settle in this
community and the descendants truly live up to the traditions and refined
social standards established by their forefathers, with the result that in
the old world of sordid selfishness and dazzling crime and sizzling sin this
Fillmore community is a beautiful gem of the
prairie radiating scintillating streams of the beauties of life as
exemplified in right living and being all that could be desired in the way
of neighborly friendship and interest. There are very few spots left in the
world where so many old time virtues can be found as exist among the people
of this community and Andrew County.
