Notwithstanding that seeds of all kinds are planted in the spring of the year the government distri button through congressmen and sonatora will tako place this fall juat prior to the November elec-1 tion. We suppose of course the distribution has no connection with the election, but the incon venionce of keeping the Seed till planting timo may influence some ungrateful farmer to insinuate something to that effect. It will be interesting to the agricultural classes to know that each senator, representative and delegate in con £i ess will have to his credit 12,000 miscellaneous packages, each con taining smaller packages of five kinds of seeds. In addition, each will have 50? packages of novelties —that is, new or little known varieties of peculiar merit—and each will hi7e 500 packagos of flower seeds. Arragements are made whereby city representatives can exchange garden seeds for flower seeds und special collec tions of flower soeds are put up for city constituencies containing varieties suituble for growing in window boxes, lots and small doorways. Senators and representatives from cotton-growiog districts will each receive seventy packages of cotton seed, and those in tobacco regions will each receive 110 pack ages of tobacco seed. Each will J be given 100 trees, ten packages oi strawberry plants, with fifteen plants in each, und eight packages ; ofgrapvines, with five vinos in each. Id addition to those there will bo allotments of grass and foliage plants and sorghum and beet-augar seeds.-Arkansas Demo, crat. __ Just Look at Her Whence came that sprightly step, fault- j less skin, rich, rosy complexion, smiling i face.

(July •15c at J. 11. Ducavant’#. An exchange tells how to see the wind. “Choose a windy day, then secure a polished piece of metal, a hand saw will be the best. Hold the metalic surface at right angles to the direction of the wind. For example, if the wind is in the north, hold the saw east and west inclined about forty-five de *tio h r-rn. N'nw look aicJuiiy mong liie back edge and you will shortly see the wind pour ing r ver it like a wateifall.” What the most of us worry a good deal more about is bow to raise the wind. That’s what we lose .-Jeep over. __ Forrest City should have her streets lighted. There is no divis ion of opinion as to that. There is, however, a very decided differ ence in the public mind as to what kind of lights should be used, the majority holding the proper idea that the strtets should bo lighted by arc lights, provided they may be had at a reasonable cost. The council should be in no hurry to close a long time contract tor un •alisfacloiy lights, and yet when ever Mr. Simmons Is prepared to furnish really trsl-class lights at a reasonable cost, the ci ty dads -hould be. ar.d no doubt are, ready to close with him. Note The Straight Ticket. It is the duty of ever}’ good democrat to go to the polls today and vote the straight ticket of his party from end to end. There may be some men on that ticket whom you do not like. There may bo on it men who, measured by the fastidious criterions, are not up to the high standard that they ought to be, but they are the nominees of a majority of the democracy of Shelly county, and the majority should carry more weight than the opinions or wishes of any one man. However much democrats may differ as to men they are united upon meas ures of large importance, but these measures can never be carried into effect without part}’ organization. The only way to maintain effective party organization is to draw the party line strictly from constable up to president. In the long run this is undoubtedly best for the general vrelfure, although in in dividual cases some undersirabie men may be elected to office. The fundamental maxim of the demo- ‘ cracy is the greatest good to the greatest number, ar.d measured by ^ that test, strict party organization j is a democratic duty. Let all per- j sonal preiudices be set aside, and let all vote the whole ticket with out a scratch. Go to the polls early and support the nominees not only by your vote, but by your influence.—Memphis Mews. ■ ■ ■■ ■ ■ I - - You Know What You Are Taking When you take Grove’s Tasteless Chill Tonic because the formula is plainly printed on every bottle showing that it is simply Iron and Quinine in a tasteless form. No cure, no pay. 50c. Independent Press. It may lo almost set down that the spirit of independence in poli tics begins with tho press. The press of this country, during long and weary years, when almost j every paper was a subservient and I bitter organ, made for itself a rcc-j ord cf which few thoughtful Ameri cans are ut all proud. It followed a discreditable round of laudation, on the one hand and condemna tion on tho other, which is drawn out by the comedians of today, as a special line of stage fun. It raged and raved until, with the assistance of the masters in politics 1 whom it served, it led the country 1 into civil strife and into the chief troubles inherited by the present generation. During recent years the press has been doing better, and a most creditable spirit of in dependence is noticeable the coun trj' over. The press is coming around to tho idea that the party should bo held to its promises, condemned for its mistakes, ex posed in its rascalities, just like other bodies of men arc treated.— Galveston .News. Cured Paralysis. W. S. lialty, P. O.

The following amendment to the state constitution will be submitted to the electors at the general elec tion to be held September 1, 1901: That Section 16. Article 5, i>f the Con-ti lution of the <it Aitean-e-.be amend-d so a« to read as follows: Article 5, S?c 16 Pay and Mi ease.

It is certain that a better class of men will come to the legislature. The consequence will be better laws in every wav, n wiser disposi tion of diffi ult questions with U>> effort to make political capital out of matters that may arise in the natural course of events. The legislature is a great school for the political demagogue. Men with small ability will poscibly be crowded out by better men, and thus we shall save the expense of the time consumed by the fellow who occasionally breaks in to the legislature and imagines it is bis duty to discuss every question and to give the people the benefit of his views on any matter lhat may arise. Altogether the amendment proposed will help the state in j various ways.” - - - i fitopsthe Cough and Works off Cold Laxative Hromo-Quinlne Tablets cure a cold id one day. No cure, uo pay. Trice ■ io cents. Insult of Patronage. The Washington Times protests against the insult of patronage as! applied to children, and makes it, 3trong: "A story which recently appear ed in one of the magazines con-1 tains the moral, pithily delivered by a small boy, that ‘a gentleman should be treated as such, irrespec tive of size.’ If people paid atten tion to this maxim there might be less trouble in the training of chil dren in some families. ‘•The plan which they follow in England and in most foreign coun tries is to treat children as children and keep them in the nursery or the schoolroom till they reach re sponsible age. The American sys tem has been, owing to circum stances, quite different. Children in this country are made the com panions, pets, playthings or slaves of their eiders until they reach the age ot discretion. ‘•There are some features of this system which are very good. The child matures more rapidly when it is allowed companionship with its elders, and the result is some times a precocious and oversharp enfant terrible, and sometimes a clever and capable youngster who is a delight both to parents and frients. It all depends on how it is doue. “borne people have a way ot treating childon as if they were ot a different race or species. They snub and patronize them, make them useful, show the n off, terror ize and spoil them alternately, and generally treat them as in ferior beings, ’t a child is to be relegated to this position, it had better be kept in the nursery dur ing the process. But if it is given to understand, even when very young, that those who are admit ted to the company of gentlemen and ladies will bo treated politely, and must treat others with courte sy or suffer the penalty of bad manners, the result generally is that the child rises to the occasion and imitates its elders. By this system the youngster is given a standard of behavior. By the other, it is compelled to make its own standard, and usually sue coeds about as well as an adult would in si milur circumstances."
