It is sometimes amusing to hear local printers in some of the rural newspapers acknowl edge their inferiority by raising a howl about the merchants of their towns sending their print ing away to other towns. A country printer, when he knows his business, has every advant age over a plant in the cities, and all that is necessary for him to hold the work of his town is for him to “deliver the goods." Too many of the country news papers are printed by men who never learned the trade and who under a misconception of the re quirements of a newspaper man, becomes “editor” under the er roneous conception that it is “an easy way of making a living.” Through the efforts of the Colorado Good Iload3 Association maps and information regarding Colorado’s roads and attractions for the tourist will be given out during the coming year in twen Cheyenne Wells Construction Company 3.
