The four wire ler.ee law went into effect April 1st. The law em braces the teiritory between the J^t. Franeie and L’Anguille rivers, the territory east of the St. Fran cis being already under the opera tion of a similar act passed two years ago. The receding of the waters has given Irtfth courage to the plant ers in the botUr-us, uni us the overflow disappears^ will follow it up with the plow. Although three or four weeks behind in tboir work, once the water within it? natural bank*, the ground will dry rapidiy, and the whole face of the valley will have assumed an al together different prospect, and the dire calamity so imminent a few days ago will have been for gotten, and in lanced security all will bend to the uttermost every cerve and muscle to the acquisi . »a of the almighty dollar, and u .st to lack, to weather, and the . .at threatening flood. ^■^B——^B^—————■—» To* i/Dij btuibess that tan stand tit test cl time ami c<rcuQ»uncea * the ownership of a free and clear farm- A man may work at the manufacturing business half his life-time, and suddenly a better in Ycntion may shut up his work.

A man may work as au employe of a businoss half a life time, and bo competent, and sud denly ho is fired because his com pany is consolidated with another company. The owner of a lree and clear farm is unassailable. He may not have all the luxuries ol life, but be is deal sure to obtain the necessaries, and he cannot be discharged or ruined.—Exchange. Her., x. W. De&oaitt Las kindly sent c* a copy of A Bill lor An Act lo create tLe L’Auguiilo Drainage District. The objeet is lo create a Beard of Directors and levy a tax of two per cent on the betterment, and drain, levee and otherwise protect lands lying in L’Anguillc bottoms. In other words it creates a corporation similar to the St. Francis Levee District, and with very similar powers, liepresontative Dcliositt is anxious 10 have an expression from the land owners and others interested or effected. He has no interest in the bill except such as mny be thought necessary or bene ficial to the majority, and will try to serve his constituents lo the best of his ability. Write him and let him know whether you favor it or not. Due Notice is Served. Due notice is hereby served on ttie public generally that DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve is the only salve Oil the market that is made from the pure, uu lulnllerated witch hazel. DeWitt's Witch Hazel Salve has cured thousands of cases * t piles that would not yield to any other treatment, and this fact has brought out many worthless counterfeits. Those per - .us who get the genuine DeWitt’s Witch IDzei Salve are never disappointed, be cause it cures. J. T. Sander*. Tho Time* does not know xhat is the demand or necessity for draining the L’Angaills bottoms. If the laad-owners and citizens of that district, or a majority of them, desire to tax themselves for this parpose, they certainly have a right to do so, and we have no notion of advising them as to their business. Bat we do want to state that a L’Anguille Drainage Dis trict, Board of Directors, and their operations will be expensive. Toe land will be taxed at once 2 per cent, on tbe betterment—that means 2 cents per acre. Tbe his tory of such organiztions is that 2 per cent wili not furnish them sufficient funis. Later a law will probably be enacted increasing the tax to 4 per cent, and then bonds will be issued, and there is no end to tho everiast.og octopus and burden. Therefore the citi zens of tbe effected district should ponder well these things, and act accordingly, taking care not to foist upon themselves a burden of taxes which they and their children and great grandchildren wili regret If vou don’t wtnt this bill to become a law write to Hon. F. W. DeEositt, Little Rock, Arkansas, and it a majority of his constituents oppose the bill he will bsc his best efforts to defeat it. Deafness Cannot be Cured by local applications, as they cannot react, the diseased portion of the ear. There Is only one way to sure deafness.and that is j by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an intiamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entirely cl<»ed deafness is the result, and unless the Inflammation can be taken out aud this tube restored to its normal condition, bearing will be destroyed forever; n.ne eases out of ten are caused by catanh, which is nothing but an inflamed condition ol the mucous ! surfaces.

Ihe popular it v of soda water and the score or more kiadred carbonate drinks as a beverage in tbe United States is increasing yearly, and has reached such proportions that the public does well to ask tbe question as to its vrboleseme cess. This has lor.* since been decided. No mote Leailbfui or refreshing drink can be conceived. One important factcn however, presents itseif to the thought ful. ar.d that is the question of the wa ter used m the manufacture of sodas. It is quite clear that unless the water used is wholesome, the driDk manufac tured therefrom cannot be so. In tins respect the Forrest City Bot tling Works have a decided advantage over the thousands of manufacturers throughout the country, inasmuch as they use the water from the v eils of Forrest City, bring from a depth of 460 feet the water, which is beyond ques tion the purest and most wholesome of waters.
