I'p to and including Wednesday
night 21 cars of strawberries have
been shipped from Springdale the
present season, shipments eaeh day
being as follows: Friday, 2 cars
Saturday, 3 cars; Sunday. 2; Monday,
5; Tuesday. 5; Wednesday, 4.
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.
The heavy rau.s > f the past few
days have damaged the i ron to some
extent .but with fa> w.:rm weather
from now on the berries should ripen

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."

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

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

■\ 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.

"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

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

Then are eight hundred and sixty

County have been busy the past week
inspecting road machinery in St. Louis
and Little Rock with the view of pur
chase for the Jefferson Highway thru

also inspected the machinery at work
on the road in Newton County. They
have decided to buy a rock crusher,

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

Harrison-Lead Hill road, the Omaha
road, the Hill Top road, and perhaps
several others. In fact, the machin
