Seventy-Six Cases are on the Docket, Twenty-Nine of Which are Suits for Divorce. The fall term of the Faulkuer chancery court will meet at the courthouse in this city next Mon day, Sept. 24. Chancellor J. G. Wallace of Russellville, judge of the ninth chancery district, will preside over the court. Clerk. A. M. Ledbetter stated this morning that 76 cases were on docket, 29 of them being suits for divorces. This is perhaps the largest batch of divorce suits ever before the court at one term. Be sides the divorce suits most of the docket is comprised of foreclosure cases and friendly suits for the par tition of lands, and the majority of the cases will probably not be con tested. Among the cases that w 11 prob ably be contested is a suit of the Hinkle heirs against P. H. Glover and others to recover certain lands which were sold for taxes. The plaintiffs allege that the taxes for which these lands were sold were erroneous. The suits of John W.

You will be in mighty good company :::::: FAULKNER COUNTY BANK NORMAL BOARD IS HARMONIOUS “We have the best board in the state," said State Auditor A. K. Moore yesterday afternoon, in speaking of the trustees ot the state Normal School — and I)r. Moore ought to know since he is a member of thirteen other state boards. “We never have any dis agreements,” he continued, “but work together harmoniously on every proposition that comes before us.” Other members of the board who heard the statement agreed with Dr. Moore, recalling the fact that practically every vote taken by the board since its organization had been a unanimous one. When the question of location was being considered last summer there was no dissension ajnong the board, and when, a little later on it be came known that Superintendent Doyne would accept the presidency of the institution he was so gen erally regarded as the logical man for the position that no one else was hardly considered. It has been thus tu every important mat- j ter arising for consideration, and! the Normal is peculiarly fortunate : in possessing a board so harmoni i ous as well as so throughly in sym pathy with its work and enthusi astic for its success. At yesterday afternoon's meet ing the board decided to make a vigorous campaign for students for the Normal. “We expect to have at least 150 students here by Christmas,” said Superintendent Geo. B. Cook. “We shall send out a large amount of advertising mat ter setting forth the advantages of the institution to the teachers and school directors of the state. I be lieve the Normal will be crowded to its full capacity before the end of the present session.” Three Conway young men will leave in a few days to enter Wash ington University in St. Louis. ' Hal W. Rice, night telegraph op erator at the station here, will re ! sign and begin a four years’ course in dentistry and RobertHardin and ; Cecil Dickerson will resume their I study of medicine.

It goes without question that the Farmers’ Union has proved it self to he the farmer's friend. It has been proved, beyond any shadow of a doubt, that this organ ization has proven the power to control and regulate to a very large extent, the price of cotton. Much has already been done even dur ing the brief existence of this or ganization, in raising the price of cotton above the five and six cent mark, and the farmers of Faulkner county have not failed to reap their share of the benefits. The price adopted by the union for holding cotton and storing it in the local warehouses is proving a marked success. It is true that many obstacles had to be overcome in working out the details of this plan, but each year's experience but serves to weed out these diffi culties, thereby enabling us to handle your custom in a very sat isfactory manner at the lowest pos sible cost to the depositor. The entire cost for storing your cotton this season—including both stor age fees and insurance—will not exceed two dollars and sixty cents (£2.60) per bale for the entire period of twelve months. The outlook for a splendid season is certainly most encouraging. Al though our entire cotton belt has been very much damaged by the blighting effect of that awful finan cial panic which has swept our whole country during the past year the price of cotton still holds good, but the panic is now num bered among the things of the past and it is our duty to come close to gether aud wage a stronger fight than ever before. Is this not a time above all times, lor every loyal member of the Farmers’ Un ion of Faulkner county to show his colors and not make the fatal mistake of throwing his cotton on the market regardless of price, which course will only tend to demoralize and destroy the splen did work that has thus far been done? If the ruling price is not a fair and liberal one it is both your privilege and your duty to de posit your cotton in your loca warehouse where it will be hand led by the safest and soundest but iness management. In storing your cotton this season it will be placed in tiers and so numbered that the depositors can at any time, and without difficulty, get all or any part of their deposits. It is our sincere purpose to prove worthy of the responsible position we occupy by doing everything within our power to handle your interest in a perfectly satisfactory manner, and thus contrit ute our full part towards making this the banner season for the Farmers Un ion of Faulkner county. To this end we earnestly solicit your hearty co-operation and support. ^ Faulkner Co. Signed } Warehouse Co. j I. G. Williams, Mgr. Our store will be closed Monday, Oct, 5, on account ol holiday.
