Unusually good prices have been received, everything selling on the track here, the lowest prices being Wednesday, when they went at $4.00 per crate, due in considerable meas ure to the heavy rains which have had a tendency to make the berries soft. The highest price received was $t».2."> per irate, which were for the first shipments. It is estimated that with anything like favorable weather the ‘ a! shipments frum Springdale will amount to fifty or sixty cars.

Spriuedah- patrons of the South western Bell Telephone Company were treate i to a surprise when their bills w ■ >v received first of the month, the price of business phones being “hiked” from $2.00 to $2 7b per month, an'! residence phones from $ • 50 to $2.oo per month, an average increase of more than 25 tier cent. The company appears t > ave acted impartially however, as it seems rates were in creased all over the state and in other states where it operates. The com pany sets forth as tin excuse for its action the claim that the business is under the direction of the government and this increase is necessary to cover cost of service. The city authorities of Little Rock have filed suit in the courts to test the legality of the raise in rates, and the Arkansas Corporation Commis-1 sion has also entered suit against the i company on the part of nil towns and cities affected. The Coni mission's Statement. The Arkansas Corporation Corn mis-inn made the following statement | as to reasons for bringing the in junction to suit: "The Arkansas Coropration Com mission contends that no public utility in the state, whether it be a telephone company or other public service con cern, has any lawful right to make any change in its rates without giv ing 80 day’s notice thereof to the Corporation Commission and obtain ing the consent of the commission. This is plainly provided for in the act of the recent legislature creating the Corporation Commission, which stat ute was approved by the governor on April 1, 1910. The Southwestern Bell Telephone Company has given the commission no notice of its intention to increase its rates, and has not ob tained or even asked the consent of the commission to such increase. The ' commission therefore, contends that the proposed increased rates are un lawful and has today filed suit in the Pulaski Chancery Court against the Southwestern Bell Telephone Com pany, on behalf of all the Arkansas pa.rons oi saiu company, to enjoin the putting into effect of said in reased rates. The Corporation ('om mission holds that the resolution of • Vngress ii.der which Postmaster General Buries >n operating the tele ■ iine.'j o nie’s no author ty on Mr. Burleson to make or change tele phone rate.-, and Cat telephone com pa: .e- ■."•rut’ voder Mr Burleson’s 'if., tion are as much subject to the ; laws of Arkansas, in the matter of state rates, as if Mr, Burleson had no connect: in the rev ith." -V out’HARD MEN TO MEET.

DEATH RECALLS BANK ROB BERY. Newspaper.- announce the death of N. B. i Poll y i Carlisle, which occurred recently at Casper, Wyoming, where he had been making his home for a number of years past, and where he achieved considerable local reputation as a veterinarian. He was found dead in his room, no other particulars being given. The remains were buried at Casper Tuesday of last week. Deceased was 4 5 years of age and was reared in Fayetteville. The death of Poley Carlisle recalls the sensational robbery of the old Bank of Springdale on Thursday. Dec ember I'd. lddl, an event still fresh in the minds of many Springdale peo ple. Especially has W. A. Graves, assistant ■ >hb r of the First Nation al Bank, a very vivid recollection of the occurence. For this robbery Car lisle was convicted and served a two year term in the state penitentiary. Shortly after the noon hour on the date mentioned W. A. Graves, in re sponse to the command "hands up!” looked up from his work in the P.ank of Springdale to face the muzzle of a 45-Colts revolver held by a steady hand. Mr. Graves was the only per son in the bank at the time, and th ■ robber had passed around the railing and into the work room without the former looking up and was taken en tirely unawares. The face of the robber from the eyes down was cover ed with a handkerchief, and after help ing himself to what money was in sight he ordered Mr. Graves to enter the vault with him and he secured other funds, in all amounting to $5,515 This he stuffed into his pockets, and as he was backing out encountered Jno. S. Dodson. He kept the two men covered, leaving by the front door, and making his escape in a one-horse buggy standing in the rear alley. He went north, pursuit fol lowing so quickly that he deserted his buggy near what is now the Hill piece northeast of town, struck across the field afoot to the mountain. While searching for the robber the party was joined by Poley Carlisle who I II' * » » “ I Uf I l .Mil j'miicu iii uir hum i. revolver b<• 1<>n^ i• ■ v to the robber we re found, together with $4..'TO of the1 stolen funds. Carlisle was su.-pcet ed and that night was arrested in the Van Winkle Hotel at Fayetteville. He was finally brought to trial and convicted. It was one <d the most daring day-light hold-ups ever known. Whether Carlisle had any accompm cs v as never known, but me probabili ties are the affair was planned and executed without assistance. The cist National Bank, successor to the Bank of Springdale, still has the re volver of Carlisle as a souvenir of The event. -V H Ml MON Uncle .lohn Patchin :s right sick at this writing.

Send your dollar to the Secretary at once 2-It Executive Committee MINTS FOR MOTORISTS ■\ resourceful motorist whose car has l.un stick in the min) does not always have to fall back on a ,niir of mules t i pet free F >r such an emergency the Cnited States Tire ( ompany offers some suggestions that have proved valuable. The first calls for having stored away somewhere in the ear a stack of old newspapers. When the car gets stuck and the wheels refuse to take hold, fet^i in some of the obi papers between the tires and the mud. I’sually only a few will have to be worked in before the wheels will be gin to grip and the car start forward. This method of handling a difficult situation is so simple and so uniform ly successful, that every motorist should know of it and carry a pile of old newspapers, unless he is equipped with sunn other apparatus for such a contingency. Here is the method suggested by the l nitod States Tire Company: Put the car in low, and if you can not feed the g..s with your foot even ly, so that the wheels will revolve slow iy, put your emergency break on. Ho not put it on so that the wheels will not. revolve at all, but tightly enough to keep them from revolving rapidly. With the wheels turning slowly, the maximum pull is delivered to them by having the car in low gear, and so long a« they turn slowly they can get the benefit of the tremend ous power. It is not always wise to fill the hole with stones or bricks, fo* their rough edges are hard on tires. Small branches of trees are better, as they offer much better tractive space. Should this method fail, quite often a slight push that would not much more than move a baby buggy will furnish just the added amount of power necessary to get the car going. . -V_ A MAN’S JOH AND \ I'AIPFU’S 1* \V "Since we took thi charge ti\<• months ago, we have received j ist twenty-six dollars a month as salary —the sole support of two people and a horse. What would you do about that sort of situation?” The questioner was a bright, en thusiastic, capable young preacner of more than average education and abil ity. He had but recently joined the Conference and had been sent to a ru ral charge in a rich agricultural sec I tion. Fine farms stretched out in all i directions, and the members of his i churches were nearly all landowners or business people, comfortably well | to-do :.nd good livers. They consid ered themselves the equals of the best i n culture and character and entity ' 1 'o as good a preacher as anybody And they paid to a struggling young couple, eagerly pouring out ' their lives in service to the communi ty, tv>e! tv six d dlars a month with corn for the preacher’s horse eight dollars a ba rel, flour twelve dollars a barrel, meal seventy cents a | peck, and bacon fifty cents a pound! Then are eight hundred and sixty | six :**h preachers of our Church who i arc n -eiving four hundred dollars a ( year or less and nearly two thousand I who arc layby down their lives in service for six hundred dollars a year ! or less. And they are the men who i i . i i_i ... ...1 i -_1 tU, i. • ,, ! .>st circuits, ;in<l serve under the most j discouraging conditions. How long .will Southern Methodism tolerate such renditions and still expert men of character and ability to enter her ministry ? The success of the < entenary will 1 mark a deeided step toward the re ! lief of this deplorable situation. — | Missionary Voice. :-v_ SPECl \L SESSION OK CONCKKSS. i President Wilson issued a call for a special session of Congress by cable Wednesday, to convene Monday, May 19.

The Commissioners also inspected the machinery at work on the road in Newton County. They have decided to buy a rock crusher, , a tractor, roller plow and other ma chinery. The purchase will be made at the meeting of the Commissioners here next Saturday. The machinery will be valuable property for the county, as there are several other hard surfaced roads to be built in this *eo«ity in the near future: the Harrison-Lead Hill road, the Omaha road, the Hill Top road, and perhaps several others. In fact, the machin ery will be needed in the maintenance of the roads. Harrison Times.
