The merry spring has come agen
As likewise has the showers:
We feel a bed bug now an' then,
An' soon will see the flours.
The grass will soon beegittin green
Just like the spring time lovers
Will on the gait an' lawn be scene
Like spoonin turtle dovers.
It makes us feel like gittin out
An' rompin in the medders:
An' playin tag with some big lout
Or turnin double heddcrs.
We watch the grass for datferdills
An' frogs an' other Hours:
An' take some biters oope an" pills
Toj ease our tired ours.
The tlees will bite the sleepi n dog
An make him scratch like sixty:
The Katy did purehed on the log
Will holler to his Trixty.
An then we'll shoe our nabers hen
An also cuss the nabor:
We'll beard the bed bug in his den,
An thus waist all our labor.
NEGRO HANGED AT FT. SMITH
Ft. Smith, Ark., March 23. A
mob of 500 persons tonight sur
rounded the Crawford County
jail at Ft. Smith and secured by
force an unidentified negro who
was shortly after midnight
hanged to a telephone pole in
front of one of the leading hotels
in the city.
The mob, after a futile attempt
to break in the doors of the pri
son, pried off the window bars
with telephone poles and used
one of the telephone poles as a
scaffold to suspend the negro.
As he was dragged through
the principal streets before the
lynching the negro pleaded for
mercy. He had earlier in the
night shot and killed Detective
A. J. Burke in the lobby of the
hotel before which he was
After the body was cut down
by officials the mob dispersed
quietly. No attempt was made
to arrest any of the participants.
The choir of the Presbyterian
church rendered very attrac
tive program Sunday evening.
The central theme was "Redemp
tion" and around it were grouped
choruses, duets and an anthem,
interspersed with "Bible readings.
The pastor gave a ten minute
talk on "The present need of
Christ's redeeming love to solve
the problems of today."
A good sized audience followed
the various numbers with keen
appreciation. We understand
that such a service will take place
regularly once a month.

DISPLAY OF MILLINERY
The milliners of Monett, Mrs."
Mace Jacques, Mrs. Fannie
Martin, Mrs. Lulu Ferguson and
Mrs. J. W. Armstong, gave their
opening display of millinery,
Saturday. The weather was
Stormy and but few ladies ven
tured out, but a gratifying sale
of hats was made.
The shapes show great range
of size and style this year and
the ladies will not find it difficult
to find a becoming hat. The new
colors of primrose, honey, and
American Beauty shades are
predominant, while the usual
reds, blues and browns are worn,
with green very much in evi
dence. All the millinery establish
ments are presided over by ex
perienced trimmers, who have
accomplished much in artistic
creations and can suit the most
fastidious. In Mrs. Martin's es
tablishment Mrs. Clifford Crav
ens is in charge, Mrs. Morris, of
St. fx)uis, is in Mrs. Jacques
store, Miss Ida Eagen, of Okla
noma, in Mrs. Armstrong's, and
Miss Edith Stocker, is trimming
her second season for Mrs. Fer
guson, with Miss Ethel Camp
bell as second trimmer.
The Ladies World for April
sugges'.s the springtime, from
the very pretty cover to the last
word on the last page. In the
stories you sense the growing
things, and in the fashion de
partments you see what is to be
worn, while household matters
chiefly concern what is best to
eat and why a change of diet is
desirable at this season. Taken
all through, it is the best issue
under the new ownership. The
short fiction is In an Hour of
Spring, by Agnes Boulton; The
Four of Them, by Anne Story
Allen; The Keeper of the Key, by
Imogen Clark; The Loves of
Childhood, by Weymer Mills. Al
of these are beautifully illustrat
ed. There are several notable
special articles, such as The Call
of the City, in which Anna Steese
Richardson tells what the city
offers to young girls in the way
of employment and remunera
