Song of the West.
I sing- you a song of the Westland wild
Where the plains are like a floor,
Where heavens by smoke are undeflled
And the tempests rage and roar;
Where the sky is like a great blue bowl
Above a stretch of white,
And wide the tumbleweeds run and roll
Unhindered in their flight.
1 sing you a song of the level lands,
Where the winds are fresh and free,
Where never a hut in the silence stands
. And never a leafless tree;
Where wolf and coyote roam the snow
And scud through the sullen night
To hunt for the wounded buffalo
That has vanished away from sight.
I sing you a song of the boundless west
Of its great blue roof, the sky,
And the tide of pride that fills the breast
When prairies greet the eye;
Of trackless wastes of snow that gleam
In the smile of the western sun,
Where grasses lash the frozen stream
And the snowdrifts scud and run.
Baked Jack Rabbit.
Baked jack rabbit according
to Assistant State Game and
Fish Commissioner Rudolph
Boacherdt of Colorado, is t h e
finest game dish that can be put
on the table.
In a discussion as to game as
food, Borcherdt championed the
rabbit, the big long-legged jack
of the plains. He says it is all a
matter of cooking.
“It beats cotton tail all hol
low,” he said. "If the people of
the eastern part of the state only
knew how to cook rabbits they
would be eating them right

They are talking.
Do we care?
We are here and they are there.
Are they mocking?
Do we mind,
If its good or the other kind?
If they are praising,
We are content.
With the pressure we have spent.
If they are hazing,
We are glad
That we have made the cusses
We are here,
Because its right
We should follow our foresight,
And keep our sphere
In the race,
For this good and noble place.
Let them talk.
Do we care?
We are here and they are there.
Let them mock,
We do not mind.
They know we’er here and not
They are talking about us,
who? Everybody. Why? Be
cause we are alive and realize
that we have best the country on
earth and the best town in east
ern Colorado, and eastern Colo
rado is our country, where we
live, think and get three squares
a day, sleep ten hours at night
and feel that we can look any
man in the eye and tell him to
go to our house and enjoy
Why shouldn’t we talk about
our town and country? We
came from Missouri and had to
be “showed” and now that we
can see we are willing to show
other people. Then we have
plenty of room for dairymen,
farmers, stockmen and a good
place for an ice plant, a creamery,
a sorghum mill and a broom
We take advice from our neigh
bors, draw conclusions and then
follow our own plans. We like
to have people talk about us, for
they must say good things. Do
we boost? Why not? We would
either boost or move. The boost
er lives, thrives and is happy. He
who does net boost needs a par
cel of ipecac, for he is out of fix.
