WAGON BEYOND CONTROL Quitman Farmer Has Exciting Experience on Hillside near Conway. Coming down the Cadron Gap hill at Joe Hiett’s place near Con way yesterday afternoon, with a wagon loaded with five bales of cotton, the team driven by Thomas Daves of Quitman lost control of the load and went down the hill side at a terrific gait. The wagon plunged through a barbed wire fence and threw off the cotton, Mr. Daves jumping and narrowly escaping injury. The damage was slight . Mr. Daves hauled his load of a ton and a quarter all the way from Quitman, a distance of 30 miles, with only two horses—an indica tion of the excellent condition of Faulkner county’s roads. The accident would not have occurred had the wagon been equipped with a brake. A YOUNG GIRL’S RECORD Fourteen-Year-Old Girl Picks 923 Pounds of Cotton in Two Days. Picking 923 pounds of cotton in two days, Miss Eula York, the 14 vear old daughter of C. W. York of Harve township, has, we be lieve, established a record that will be hard to beat. On Monday of this week she picked 420 pounds, a remarkable performance in itself, but the next day she gathered 503 pounds of the fleecy staple. The cotton was the Rowden variety. Justus Bowe, who was fined a few days ago in Justice W. B. Wilson’s court for disturbing a re ligious congregation, has appealed his case to the circuit court. The case is one of the results of the controversy which has been waged for many months between the two factions of the colored Holiness church here—those who speak the “unknown tongue’’ and those who do not. After being prohibited by the chancery court from using the church except on stated occasions, Bowe set up a tent near the church building and his rivals who had possession of the building claimed that Bowe's serv ices created such an uproar that they were unable to proceed.

Nelson Drug Co. ; EDITORIAL j Because the Pope county assess ment of personal property is nearly half a million dollars below that of last year, County Judge Baird has disallowed the claim of Assessor Danley amounting to $1045.60 in fees for making the assessment. The case is a unique one in this state and the decision of the higher courts will be a matter of interest. Indiana and New York are now considered almost certainly Demo cratic and the chances are most favorable for Democratic success in Ohio.These threestates, together with the solid south, inclvding Maryland will give Mr. Bryan 243 electorial votes, one more than necessary to elect, without includ ing Colorado, Nevada and Nebras ka, which he is sure to carry, and several other states which are doubtful. Just because you think the state and congressional district are safely Democratic is no reason why Dem ocratic voters should not go to the polls on Tuesday, November i, and cast their ballots for Bryan and Kern electors and for Chas. C. Reid for congressman. Lack of interest in the election four years ago resulted in a large number of counties voting for Republican electors, and the state at large gave the Parker electors a plurality of only 17,574. The normal Demo cratic majority in Arkansas is over 60,000, and we ought to roll at least 75,000 for Bryan this year. In an interesting letter yesterday Walter Wellman, an independent Repubican staff correspondent of several papers,who is very accurate in his political observations, says that Ohio, the home of Taft, is to day one of the most doubtful states in the Union. The reasons for this, as pointed out by Mr. Wellman, are three distinct revolts in the rank of the Republicans. The first and most important is that of the labor organizations, the member ship of which has heretofore been almost solidly Republican, but which is now a unit in supporting Bryan. The second is the revolt in the negro vote, which amounts to about 40,000 in Ohio. Leading negroes of the state are making daily speeches urging their race to support Bryan as a rebuke to Taft for his action in the Brownville matter and his treatment of Foraker, whom the Ohio negroes idolize. The third element is re volt of Foraker himself, who Wellman says is working in a quiet but effective way to line up his organization against the Republi can nominee who occasioned his downfall.
