TAKEN TO STATE HOSPITAL Sheriff Ed Paul and Deputy Sher- iff Elmer Lindstrom took Albert Mandl, who was recently adjudged insane, to the State Psychophysics Hospital in Denver, last' Tuesday morning. WORK STARTED ON NEW COURT HOUSE It is thought that the work of ex- cavating for Chaffee county's new court house will be pushed this week as more men are being put to work, Ground was broken last week and the cement house and other tempor- ary structures have been eobpleted. Twenty-five men were at work Saturday and the pouring of eor* crete will start soon. Much of the material for the building is to be bought thru Salida firms, W. T. Michell. of Colorado Spvtnts, factured goods designed for display as well as for actual use. And why should not color come into its own? The adaptation of color is a science. The reason we used to laugh at too much color in clothing and other things that people used was because few people knew how to get the right combinations, compared with the color expressions of today. Correct use of colors nowadays means more than to match and contrast. We can not tell you why all this advancement in the use of color is so marked other than to say that it has been made a study the same as lighting, architecture and music. A green field of wheat or crn and a green grove of orange or ap- ple trees against a blue sky looks all right. Nature knows more than a man how to make this possible. But DIVIDENDS as it is written and it is said the violin isnot able ?o get away from the piano on any number which is called. Again, the Monte old timers say, "You will hear the greatest banjoist ever played in your house." Well and good--we will pay them their price. We have a number of phone calls already wanting to know if .the above musicians were engaged and if March 21 was sure. The bills will be out today an, nouncing the big time. The reason some people talk so much is that they never stop to think and never think to stop. Is your subscription paid? Loyalty to the' community in which one lives not only costu noth- ing in the end, but actually pays big dividends. The dividends that loyalty pays are more than material gain. The logic of boosting for the home town is sound and self-evident; for suppose no one boosted it. Would there be any town left? There are so many ways of in- vesting and so many kind of bene- ficial results in respect to c)mmun- ity loyalty, that no one method can be singled out as against any other of the many ways to helu. Within the hearts of the majority of persons there is a commendable urge to do something or sbmebdy; and this urge finds daily expression in home life and in all other activi- ties of life. Results of individual efforts al,ng the lines of community betterment mul,.;phe., becalse in man is learning. Inharmony or la:k are greatly " " of harmony in color combinations at- nine cases out 3f tcr whatever helps t fects the eye as discords in music any portion of the population helps affect the ear. It is well that we are giving attention to the looks as well as to the sounds of things that con- front us in daily life. WORK STARTED ON WOLF CREEK PASS Construction on the $200,000 high- way program on Wolf creek pass was started by the Lallier Construction Monday. Twenty men with equipment for the work on four miles of road west 9f Twin Bridges were sent to the location. Work on the highway is being unshed as rapidly as possible to com- r)lete most of the difficult portions before the tourist season opens. Detours will be constructed on other prts'of the 'oaff and the pass wirl be kept open this summer, it is planned. The road over Wolf Creek pass is the shortest to the Mesa Verde district from Denve and other cities east of the .mountains. KIWANIS HEAR JUDGE PALMER (Alamosa Journal) "The jury is the bulwark of An- glo-Saxon liberty," said :Judge John T. Palmer in speaking to the Alamosa Kiwanis at their regular meeting last Friday night at the Masonic Hall. "The constitution of Colorado does not provide any qualifications for the juror, but certain statutes dobe must be a male citizen." Judge Palmer then told how jurors were selected from a list of 300 tax payers of the county. There are some people who can claim an exemption from jury duty, according to Judge Palmer. State or county officers may be excused, as may be judges, attor- neys, officials of railroads and Sev- ,enth Day Adventists on Saturday. "Editors and reporters are also ex- empt," the judge said, "but whether this is really an exemption or a pro- hibition I don't know." all of it. Loyalty is a virtue. Moral, uen- tel, spiritual and material advance- ment are the rewards of loyalty. Consider the dog to his master, the bee 2o its swarm, the bird to its mate, the wolf t its pack. The har- mony of Nature nespeaks loyahy, for, after all, loya?ty is the placin of oneself in accord with the general scheme of life. Many individuals are found an- xious to join the ranks of booster% but they do no find the most con- venient fields of work. Many only need to be asked to do something, and when asked they go at L[xe job with a will and a spirit that mees the hopes of the mos sanguine. No one need be ashamed to preach the gospel of the booater If the booster b ing woroh - while to sell he should be nut out of business. But he has somethinp; 1o sell.
