There will be Sunday school at the Old Wells next Sunday if the weather is fit. Pearl Maynard Hatcher left for Los Animas last week after vis iting her mother and other rela tives and friends for several months. School will be out at Waterville the first of next week. Miss Greuder will return to her home stead in the northeast corner of the county. Some good republican ought to say a piece like this: “Makes no difference where he’s found, You’ve gotta quit kickin’ our Ike around.” Ahem! Ahem! The Old Wells school will close next week. The Ladies Aid will have their annual banquet at this school house. We all look for an elegant dinner and will prepare to do justice to the occasion. Several farmers in this locality will put in spring wheat. It looks very much like a good crop year and the farmer that puts in a crop of wheat and gets a good yield will make a nice sum with little effort. Wheat is sure mon ey and a profit on the investment. What will save this county? Not cattle, for cattle have had a chance to make this country and Cheyenne Wells Construction Company 3. H.

CHEYENNE WELLS COLORADO never did it; so it remains for wheat to bring this land and western country up to a high standard of farming and farm life. It certainly will do it. Cash for poultry. City Meat Market. PROSPECT HILL. A very wise man once said, “There is nothing new under the sun.” This is perhaps as sa credly true in these degenerate days as it was in the days of the wise king; but there is no age limit to development and change. People are progressive in these stirring times, and not to be so, would subject them to caustic criticism. Nothing new under the sun still holds good. A new demo cratic paper in town might seem to contradict that statement. Lo cally, this is so; but democracy is as old as Adam’s race, and as a general fact we believe the statement. Two papers ought to give an intelligent reading public ample opportunity to keep posted on neighborhood as well as state and national affairs. Variety is the spice of life, and as there are no two things in nature ex actly alike, the news from these two sources will differ. Two newspapers, like two stores or other legitimate enter prises, can exist in a community and serve as tangible balances to keep an expectant public well poised and satisfied, in that all the news relevant to the good of the body politic has been told and everybody satisfied. We know not what course the proprietors of this paper intend to pursue, but we feel assured that they will always be found contending for the right. A pure government needs brave defend ers, and faithless public servants should have the searchlight of truth to reveal their dark deeds. So we will leave these weightier matters of the law for more able pens, while we confine ourselves to the minor matters within the scope of our unpretentious bor ders. The name of the new paper is exceedingly broad and may indi cate a grasp of intelligence lap ping over to our neighbor coun ties north and south. All be it, the name is inspiring, if it has been eminently said "there is nothing in a name.” The ostensible purpose of the press is to enlighten the public mind, and should never lose sight of its higher duty to edu cate the public conscience, and to this high end and aim we wish you success. j.a.j.
