WILL ROGERS is in line for a lot in Coolidge.
Why not invite him to be mayor. He is a man experienc
ed in the office.
DON’T forget the Pageant, Arizona’s greatest
show. Coolidge is the gateway city leading to this won
derful, spectacular outdoor entertainment and the
crow'ds attending will look us over.
WHEN you get that grouchy feeling drink Cool
idge air and water. It is champagne dry and sparkling
and fills you full of vigor. Cut out rainy days for this
treatment which can be followed most every day in the
year.
The publisher of The Examiner is grateful for the
liberal patronizing of its advertising columns by the bus
iness men of this city and their action in this matter is re
sulting in good to the community. Praise that has come
in, and that is coming in daily, comments in the strongest
terms the surprise that a Coolidge less than three years
old has grown so rapidly into an important business cen
ter.
COOLIDGE is fortunate in having a large aggrega
tion of live, wide-awake business men. Once these gen
tlemen get together in promoting the advancement of
this town there will be no summer or winter as far
as the coming in of homeseekers, investors and indus
tries is concerned. From the standpoint of having every
thing in the way of resources this place has all other lo
cations in the west beat Team work during this spring
and summer will build a real city here.
DURING his lifetime great honors fell to William
Howard Taft, ex-president and great American states
man. The nation will love him forever. His name will
go down thru the centuries to come as a great president,
supreme judge, and grand representative of his country
in every capacity he was called upon to fill. Above this
all shines that endearing character which attracted all
to him. At Arlington cemetery his body sleeps and the
sweet soul is with the Father .
DURING the past week a persistent inquiry has
been made relating to the politics of The Examiner.
This paper is republican in national politics and will sup
port the head of that ticket in state affairs. Owing to
the fact that Pinal county seldom enters republican can
didates in the elections we believe in helping the best
material on the democratic ticket to win. There are plen
ty of good republicans in this county who would make
efficient officials and the republican county central com
mittee should trot them out and give this paper a
chance to assist in getting some good men working f or
the taxpayers.
HAVE a photograph of your business house or
home made- This paper would like to have a copy for
its files. The changes that w 11 take place in the aspect
of Coolidge is going to furnish plenty of material for
copy. In many instances growth of business will cause
the doing away with present structures to make room
for larger buildings. These changes are not going to
take place in a week, or a month, but a year will show a
difference. In a few years there will be little left to
show what the present town of Coolidge looked like.
That’s why this paper wants your pictures.
WHAT has the future in- store for this town of
•Coolidge? Why should an investment here in business,
or a home prove profitable? This question will be ask
ed repeatedly not only of the real estate, newspaper and
business men, but of all residents of Coolidge. What’s
the answer? Have you given your town a look over in
regard to its future possibilities so that you can answer
all inquiries with facts that are obtainable at present.
This paper is here to help. It selected Coolidge as a point
of publication because this town at present is the foun
dation upon which a great Arizona city is going to grow.
It is going to grow along with the state and nation. Tak
ing a period of years by which to judge the growth of
the country, and irrespective of mining or agricultural
depressions, which aj*e not the rule, the nation’s ad
vancement goes on. Thru good times or bad, one admin
istration of government or another, there’s no retarding
the settlement up of America, its cities, towns, moun
tains and plains. Certain states have progressed more
rapidly than others. Arizona is a leader in this respect.
Just figure on these facts and you cannot have an imag
ination too strong in advocating amazing things for your
town. We have thousands of acres of soil backing up in
vestments here- It can be farmed at all times of the
year with a production of diversified, or specialty crops.
The rapid growth in the state of Arizona during the
past few years has brought a growth to the most favor
ed sections of the state and the Casa Grande valley
stands supreme with its richness of soil and climatic
conditions. The pioneers fought for water for the soil.
The fight has been won. The world has received the
message of the building and dedication of the Cool
idge dam. The folks that are coming west will have
this valley in mind for awhile. It is up to us to see that
ihey have it always in mind and this valley keeps to
the front in getting its quota of Arizona’s new citizens
All that is required is good team-work and we are on the
way to a bigger and better Coolidge.

BEST LITTER TO
USE IN BROODER
Shavings, Cut Straw and Cut
Hay Meet With Favor.
One of the commonest questions
of the poultry department of
the New Jersey agricultural experi
ment station during the spring is.
"What is the best litter to use in
the brooder house?" For the bene
fit of all poultrynien who are trou
bled with this problem the station
Issues the following statement:
There is no best litter, but there
are certain requirements that litter
must meet In order to be satisfac
tory for use In brooding chicks.
These requirements are that It
should be: Light in weight, thus al
lowing the droppings and dirt to
work to the floor so the chicks are
not likely to pick up contaminated
material; absorbent, and therefore
capable of keeping the brooder
house floor dry; cheap, so one can
afford to replace it every five days
after the first four weeks; and
clean, which means freedom from
mold, mustiness, and dust.
Shavings, cut straw, and cut bay
meet these requirements. They are
not the only materials that one can
use, but they are among the best.
Straw or bay used for ljjtter should

always be cut. if the straw or bay
is not cut it becomes matted, and
covered with droppings, and Is
therefore of no value for litter.
Bacillary white diarrhea, coccidi
osis, and intestinal worms are
spread to a large extent by the use
of dirty litter, the experiment sta
tion warns. One rule in brooding
chicks that should be followed, if
all others are forgotten, is, “Clean
the. brooder house every five days."
