Largest | Circulation % Ms -•-- VOL XXXVI Letter Pertaining To Bridge At Elizabeth. Mr. E. T. Evans, County Commission er, Elbert County, Elizabeth, Colo. ' Dear Sir: I have your letter of October Bth in reference to work on the bridge at Elizabeth in particular, and on the several bridges for highway N o.\ 8 in general. j The work on seven bridges was duly advertised and bids received on' September 22nd. The contract was awarded to the Colorado Bridge ar.d f Construction Company, but since their material is to be shipped from the coast, it is understood that it will be practically sixty days before it will be on the ground. The bid was made on the basis of not be ginning work under sixty days. We are not in position to push the contractor to this work jn account of the condition of our funds and this was also understood when he took the contract. In fact, it seems that there 13 little enccurage leent for believing that the bridge will be in passable diape before win ter, and if possible, would suggest that the county put the approaches to the present bridge in temporary - shape to take winter traffic. Yours very truly, L. D. Blauvelt, State Highway Engineer Seven Good Ways. For the benefit of people who want to help the editor and don’t know how, we are submitting the follow ing seven good ways: First of all, give him the news; ho wants it. Give it to him even though sometimes it does not get into the paper. He hasn’t time always to tell you why some pieces of news are not used; but ten to one he has a per fectly good and impersonal reason. Give him the news even though you may not be especially interested in it. Some folks never think to give the editor news except when they are concerned in it one way or another. Second, don’t give him a piece of news and tell him you want it print ed Just as it is written. There’s a right and a wrong way to do even such a simple thing as writing an article for a country paper. One ed itor had to leave town because ho printed every piece of news Just as it was handed in—spelling, punctuation and all —and printed it with the name of the person who gave it to him. Third, don’t try to play a Joke thru the paper unless you explain it to the editor. A thing in cold type looks a lot different and sounds different from a thing repeated by word of mouth, when the voice, a facial ex pression and a gesture, perhaps, help to show its meaning. Fourth, don’t worry for fear the editor is making too much money: you should want him to be prosper ous. He can and will give you a bet ter paper. He will be less likely to have to compromise with his con science over certain kinds of adver tising. And, anyhow, he can’t make a big fijrtuno out of his paper—ho will be lucky if he keeps going. Fifth, be ready to tell your editor when something in the paper pleases you. Once in a while you tell your preacher he has a good sermon, so tell the editor something about h.s paper. Sixth, get your "copy” to him ear ly. Take it to him for the next week the day after the previous publica tion, if you can. It takes time to set type and make a paper. Did you ev er wonder what the editor did all the time between publication days? You would know if you were publishing a newspaper yourself. Lastly, go in some day when the paper is being printed. Go in se/- eral times during the day, and you will have more of a realization of what a Job it is to make a weekly paper.—Ex. j When you run up against a diffi cult proposition on the farm, ask your COUNTY AGENT. That’s what he is for. * yff Elbert County Tribune Devoted to the Interests of the People of Elizabeth, Elbert, Elbert County and the Divide Country. Program Outline.

ALFALFA IS EXCELLENT FEED FOR DAIRY COWS BUT INSUFFICIENT ALONE The farmers of Colorado are indeed fortunate to have at their disposal tho alfalfa crop. Of all the rations which are fed to dairy cows, alfalfa hay heads the list from the standpoint of value. Its feeding value is due to its high protein content and to its palatabili ty. In the West, alfalfa is our cheapest roughage and for this reason some farmers are Inclined to feed it alone to dairy cows. This is expecting too much from thiß great feed, says B. W. Fairbanks of the Colorado Agricul tural College. When fed alone it makes an unbalanced ration as it i? too high in protein and too low in net feeding nutrients. The animals can not be keop up in health and vigor and they will fall off in pro duction when limited to alfalfa for feed. Add to alfalfa a variety of grain, and during the winter a suc culent feed for an excellent dairy ra tion. Last spring you were wishing you had done so many things the au tumn before. Now is the time to do them to avoid ‘that position next Spring. ELIZABETH. COLORADO, FRIDAY, OCT. 28, 1921. OUR MOTTO: JUSTICE WHERE VER IT MAY LEAD. The End of a Perfect Day Ex-service Men’s Column.
