HOPES OF SHORT SESSION Mt
OF LEGISLATURE DISAPPEAR IP
According to news from the State I
Capitol efforts to confine the extra viv
session of the legislature to emergency wh
matters are not,meeting with nmch pa,
success. Much important legislation l1o,
was just in the starting period with is
the opening of the third week of the spe
session. Several bills of importance un
have been presented in the senate. 11
among which was a bill granting to we
women the same political rights as ha'
men in respect to holding public of- nol
trice, as
A compromise in the good roads leg- iot
islation and an agreement- between the
contending camps is promised at a Re
public hearing on road matters Tues- lo
day night. This is easily the most im- pre
plortant subject before the legislature me
and the one on which most factions alh
differ. Governor Parker has called all cei
factions into conference and asked cal
them to get together and agree upon wi
a policy. sp1
This conference Tuesday night will
have to taken into consideration a re'
good roads bill, introduced into the Fc
senate Monday night by Senator N. hii
C. Williamson, of East Carroll. The en
Williamson bill, a forecast of, which mn
was printed in the Times sometime ago en
creates a commission of three non
salaried members to oversee the good wi
roads construction and places the ac- it
tual construction of the roads in the al
hands of the state board of engineers. we
The commission is to be cdmposed of me
the governor, the secretary of state Ft
and the commissioner of agriculture. inr
This board, without any additional ib
compensation, will sit as the board of
directors of the good roads depart- NI
ment of the state. The highway de
partment is completely abolished and
the state board of engineers is charg
ed with the duty ,of building roads 8i
and 'esponsible to this board of three ci
for the construction of the roads and da
the administration of the funds. In (l1
all others respects tie Williamson bill sa
does not differ from other billgron the Ih
subject. RI

MUCH INTEREST "MANIFESTED TB
IN BAPTIST REVIVAL MEETINGS
Large crowds have attended the re- 1
vival services at the Baptist church, Lal
which have been in progress for the neo
past ten days. Pastor-Evangelist C. P. we
Zhoney, who is conducting the meeting,' ter
is an able minister, a very impressive at
speaker and makes his appeal to the sta
unsaved in a very touching manner. thi
His sermons are easy to understand; poi
well illustrated and well worded and oil
have been greatly enjoyed by those for
not affiliated with any church as well art
as the members of the various relig- co
ious denominations. Dr. Itoney has had lar
the very able assistance of the pastor, the
Rev. J. C. Cox, who is universally ma
loved in Arcadia. Brother Cox has we
preached several times during the I aft
meetings to a well filled house, and as Pl
always his sermons have been well re- the
ceived. Mrs. Cox conducts the musit
cal service; assisted by her son, Byron. .tio
who delights the congregation with a of
special song at each service. plc
This has been the most successful ha
revival held in Arcadia for years tie
Forty members have been added to the tin
church to date; some by letter and sev we
eral by profession of faith and the cai
members of the church are very much
encouraged over the results. *
We are informed that the revival *
will continue through Sunday and that *
it is the int6ntion to hold the baptism- *
al service on Monday night of next *
week. The subject Friday at the *
morning service is announced as "Not *
Far from the Kingdom of God." Even- *

I its Neglect." 1

WORD HAS MANY.MEANINGS
SWhen One Mentions "Fish," the Sylla- a
t ble is Susceptible of More Than p
S One Construction. . |
* "All is not fish that swims" reflected
Sthe sapient philosopher as he beheld
a summer girl taking to the ocean.
The sapient philosopher was formulat
ing a great truth when he came to
that conclusion.
SThe whale, for Instance, although It
Sunquestionably swims, is more cloily
I related to the cow than to the minnow.
SThe searIs closer kin to the dog than
L- to the fluke.
th To a great many afishermen the word
"fish"-see Latin "pislcis" and Dutch
"vlsch" (the same word)--possesse3
only the verb form; "to fish;" Catch
Oring fish is not a necessary part of the
L process of shing. The thing Is "to
in fish," and is not primarily $o
og catch fish. (See fishermen'on the
banks of the Seine nla Paris, "fishing"
ae day without even getting a bite
from'a minnow.)
hA famous Blnglishman by the name
eof lsaak Walton was one of the most
g persistent patrone of the ver "to
Sfish."' The word "ish" was alo ex
s. tenslvely used during the war in an ef
o fort to save meat for the, fighters.

THIRD TEST FOR OIL NEAR
I RINGGOLD DRAWS ATTENTION
The third test well drilled by the
Lakeside Oil Co., on their holdings
l near Lake Bistitreau and about 8 miles
west of Itinggold, blew in Monday af
ternooli making gas, mud atnd water
e at a depth of about :2500 feet. From
e statements made by those watching
this test much faith is placed in the
possibility of making this a producing
I oil well. Small gas craters have been
e formed for a radius of several feet
11 aroumd the holde and the earth is inll a
continual quiver. This is very simi
d lar to the action of several wells in
the El I)orado fiehl that afterwards
y made large producing oil wells. The,
s well will be drilled in on Thursday
e after the arrival of the head men in
sh the companly, who are coming to watch
,the proceedings.
i. Although the activity in this see
, .1101on has not attracted a great amount
a of interest from the outside, the peo
ple who are doing tile prospecting
l have the utmost faith in the possibili
s ties of their holdings near Lake Bis
e tineau, where they have drilled three
" wells in succession. The first two
ie came in making gas in great quantities.
