Coolidge, Arizona. TED HEALY Owner and Publisher Advertising rates furnished on application Subscription rates $2.50 per year WITH an Arizona summer commencing to hit on all cylinders Coolidge is going right head. It will be but a short time to the balmy breezes of the fall and people looking for suitable houses to rent. Build a house on that vacant lot and help the town grow. TALKING co-operation is one thing and practicing it another, it is a fortunate community that has co operation working in full force. WHILE Casa Grande, Florence and Superior edi tors are fussing editorially about the census showings of those towns, Coolidge keeps on adding new people to its population, by virtue of its location as an im portant trading center. A PROMPT answer to a letter of inquiry regard ing the resources of Coolidge, and follow up letters, as long as those seeking information are interested, will result in bringing new people to this valley. Very frequently the newspapers receive communications which complain that letters have been sent to Chamber of Commerces and no reply has been made- One of the ways to correct this matter is to answer in quiries promptly, make copies of the original and ans wer for reference, and send copies of the inquiries to all who desire to know who are seeking information about the town, or valley. If letters of this class are taking up too much of the secretary’s time to answer them it is good investment on the part of a chamber of commerce, or other organizations receiving such communications, to hire some one to see that all receive answers, and copies of the originals are mailed to all realty agents and the newspapers.

Apparently none of them knew its meaning, although it rep resented a scene in the mythology of Greece. Bored by the conversa tion, one of them turned to a wait er and Insolently demanded to know the picture’s meaning. To his astonishment the waiter gave it Immediately. "In what school have you stud ied?" asked the guest. “In many schools, sir," replied the waiter, “but the school In which I learned most was the school of adversity. Books only have been my friends." Ten years later all France rang with the fame of the greatest writer of his age, Jean Jacques Rousseau — Philadelphia Ledger, Winning the Battle One of the most difficult tasks for human beings is to admit faults ; probably more difficult for women than for men. Ido not believe I could have been as humble as I am had I been born a woman; I should have been inevitably influenced some by the story of Helen of Troy, ao beautiful, so charming, so ap pealing, that a great war was fought over her. In a smaller way there is war over every woman. Her courtiers are the ice man, the milk man, the grocery man, every man she meets. The compliments paid Helen have come down to us In a book, and we use them; clumsily, perhaps, but with sufficient effi ciency to win many battles.— Howe’s Monthly. Colonial "Fir*t Night" In 1750, writes Garland Smith In the Brooklyn Eagle Magazine, the Colonial Sons and Dames of New York city assisted at a thrilling event, the performance, in the Nas sau theater, of the first complete, honest-to-goodness opera in the Col onlea, as exactly ns possible accord ing to the best English specifica tions. There had been scattered produc tions of old English ballad-operas la America before, but never any thing as elaborate as this—never a bona fide opera, with complete stage Bettings, und a regular plot, and all the sophistication of London so clety. Adequate Ventilation Essential for Poultry Adequate ventilation is impor tant for a profitable poultry tlock. Sufficient fresh air must be admit ted to replace the moisture-laden air thrown off by the birds. It must be admitted so as to avoid drafts. The open front principle Is used extensively in many sec tions. It has been determined that the openings in the frbnt wall should equal aproximately one tentb of the floor area. To pro tect the dock during severe storms frames covered with a light weight of muslin may be used in the front openings. Chick* Crowd One case of large losses among chicks that are brooded artificially results from crowding. If for any reason the chicks become chilled they sre apt to crowd together in erder to keep warm. This piling up usually results In the death of •everal chicks at the bottom of the pile. Even if they do not they will be stunted. Their digestive sys tems will be so upset that they will mot eat as they should and growth will atop, making them practically worthless.

Mr. Grover Goldy, Nichols Dairy, Coolidge, Arizona: Dear Sir—Am very sorry to report that Lee beat you out for first place. He has culled out some cows and was only milking 14. He made a litle over 32 pounds average. But herds of less than 15 cows are not classed with larger herds, so that still leaves you high for herds over 15 cows. Your average production for 20 cows was 912 pounds milk and 31.0 pounds B. F. Your cow was the high cow with 1404 pounds milk and 51.9 pounds Butter Fat. Test 3.7. She was the only cow making over 50 pounds. Yours very truly, R. F. WILLIAMS.
