Coolidge, Arizona. TED HEALY. Owner and Publisher Advertising rates furnished on application Subscription rates $2.50 per year THE man who is always kicking about conditions in the town he is in, will never move out as long as he finds company to listen to his complaints. WANTED—Fair-minded men or women to run for Pi nal county senator and representatives. Job pays sls per day while legislature is in ssession. People best fitted for this work are those who know the importance of just tax ation to all. Mining, farming, stockraising, business and labor want a square deal. A MODERN theater in Coolidge will add thousands of dollars to this town’s business revenue. GOOD business practice is treating everyone with equal courtesy. The rich may buy more, but the poor exceed in numbers. Many a merchant has lost trade by mistaking the size of the customer’s patience. THE nicest residential section of the future Coolidge is g ing to be where the homes have the most water, grass and flowers. DON’T lose an opportunity to swat the fly. Exerminate all the flies and destroy all places where they can multi ply. It means better health conditions at all times. IF THERE is to be a Fourtn of July celebration in Cool idge, now is the time for the powers that be to make a start in the plans- A good celebration here would help the town and bring visitors from Tucson, Phoenix, Mesa and other points, who would take advantage of the occa sion for an outing that would include a visit here and to The Ruins GOOD WORK FOR STATE FAIR “THE time to prepare for the Arizona State Fair is right now.’’ This is the slogan that Walter E. Strong, superintendent of the agricultural department of the nex fair is teaching in every county of the state. He re cently made a tour of the counties in the south and west sections of Arizona, with most encouraging response. On that trip were also J. E. Thompson- chairman of the state fair commission, Lee McCullough, secretary of the Ari zona Industrial Congress and D. Wiley, manager of the Maricopa County Farm Bureau. Strong particularly wants a keen rivalry between counties in the agricultural exhibits. He believes that these displays at the state fair can be made one of the greatest assets of the whole show. When Yuma county was visited recently the stats fair delegation met with the county supervisors and a group of representative agricultural leaders- Strong pointed out to them that Yuma had not been properly represented, if at all, for many years past in the state fair agricultural depart ment. Yet Yuma had the finest pecans in the world, and was shipping a wonderful crop of grapefruit from its orchards, and was recognized as one of the important alfalfa seed centers in the United States. The result of she conference was a decision that Yuma would this year send in an agricultural exhibit commensurate with the county’s importance. Similar successful representations were made to the Pinal and Pima county supervisors and farmers from that district. The new importance and growth of the San Car los irrigation project gives Pinal county every excuse for “blowing its horn’’ agriculturally, Strong said. Pima coun ty also has promised to increase its farm product entries this fall. Now Strong wants Maricopa county farmers to meet the challenges from these counties with a renewed inter est in entering their own exhibits. He is expecting num erous displays to come in from the northern counties. Ma ricopa must not lag behind, he says. The average farmer does not appreciate how much fun there is in exhibiting a choice limb of grapefruit, a sample of his barley,frames of honey or some other farm crop which may be in good condition at that time,’’Strong feaid. Not only is there keen pleasure in seeing the ex hibits you sent in and looking over your neighbor’s offer ing, but there is good financial return for the winner. I know of several farmers who were persuaded by friends to send in exhibits last year to help out the showing of indi\idual communities. To their surprise they won prize money and each of them to my knowledge is taking just a little extra care this year in preparing to show again. They have found it worth while.”—Arizona Republican.

TUBERCULOSIS IS CAUSE OF LOSSES Task of Cattle Raisers to Kill Ailing Cows. (By J. W. LUMB. Extension Veterinarian, Kansas State Agricultural College.) As producers and consumers of cattle and their products, it is the | task of live stock raisers to treat herds and locate the tuberculous ■ cow and give her a free ride to the rendering tank. Tuberculosis of man and animals 1 is so intimately interwoven that it ■ Is almost impossible to view them Independently. Three discoveries —that tubercu losis was infectious, that it was caused by a definite germ that could be isolated, and that tuber culin could be made and used as a test substance to determine the presence or absence of tuberculosis —were of very great importance and laid the foundation for our present methods of control and eradication. With this knowledge more exact methods were used in combating the development of the disease in man and animals. Tu berculosis was proven to be a pre ventable disease. These investigations definitely proved that man may become In fected with bovine tuberculosis. It Is true that such infections are, as a rule, limited to children or take place during the early periods of life. It has been found that very few people having tuberculosis of the lungs have the bovine type of Infection. The form of tubercu losis that attacks the brain or spinal chord is seldom of the bovine type. General tuberculosis is like ly to be of the bovine type in about 1G per cent of the cases. Taking the cases of abdominal tuberculosis in humans, the percentage showing infection of the bovine type may run well over 50, especially if in fants and children are examined. Leading Farm Crops Now Marketed Through Stock It has been conservatively esti mated that three-fourths of the product of improved land and all the product of unimproved lands is used by live stock. Os the ten leading crops in the United States 85 per cent of the corn. 08 per cent of the hay, 35 per cent of the wheat, SO per cent of the oats, 00 per cent of the cottonseed (in the form of cottonseed cake or meal and cottonseed hulls) and 00 per cent of the barley is marketed through live stock. These ten crops represent 87 per cent of the value of all farm crops produced in 1027, and 55 per cent of the value of the ten leading crops represents the value of the portion of these crops that are marketed through live stock.

My lady must assist by long hours of standing to be fitted. The weight of the dress often drags one down so that only the strong est can carry about the heavy ma terials. “The low bodices which have be come more common are a greater menace to health Ilian almost any thing. Women who wear low-necked gowns in the evening, should not wear high-necked undergarments, for the contrast between their pro tection in the day and that of the evening is very great and they more readily take cold. The neck and shoulders should be bathed freely with cold water and with alcohol and water. . . . “The hips should not measure over twelve inches more than the waist or five inches more than the chest without corsets. The chest expansion of the society woman will probably be one inch; it should be nearly three.”—Brenda Ueland in the Saturday Evening Post.
