JFOR STOMACH TROUBLE
»hn W. Skillen of Sidney, Ohio* Has Found a Remedy. Experts declare that the reason Stomach disorders are so common in this country la due to hasty and care less habits of eating. Stomach \ troubles and run-down conditions usually go together. John W, Skillen of Sidney, Ohio, Bays: “1 had a bad stomach trouble £ for years, and became so weak that I could hardly walk or do any work. My appetite was poor, and it seemed | Impossible to get any relief. Since , taking ‘Vinol’ I find a remarkable im I provement in my health, my digestion Is much stronger, and I hare gained . in weight. I would not be without [ Vinol.” Vinol makes weak stomachs strong because it strengthens and tones up the weakened, tired and overtaxed nerves of the digestive organs. Vinol is easily assimilated by the weakest stomachs, and is delicious to the taste. Try a bottle of Vinol with the un derstanding that your money will be .returned if it does not help you.

Pat riotic business men of Hot Springs have kept it up for several years, but the prospective sale of Oaklawn is bringing about a condition which may mean the removal of the fair from Rot Springs. It has long been realiz ed that Little Rock is the logical lo cation for the state fair. The success that has crowned the work of the Pu laski County Fair Association for sev • eral years is proving an incentive to attempt the greater undertaking. The association is working on a plan to Spend $30,000 on the fair in 1914, and in 1915 to take over the state fair. Judge E. R. Ratterree has agreed to •donate a tract of land for the pur pose if the legislature will make an appropriation for its maintenance. MORRILTON NEWS From the Headlight. Mrs. Ambrose Sammons and little son, Orrell, came up Tuesday night from Conway to spend Christmas with : relatives here. Miss Laura Anderson, daughter of Dr. Jas. A. Anderson and wife of Con way, will be married December 30 to ’ Rev. J. Abner Sage, a prominent young divine of the Southern Metho dist church in the state. The young ■ people are well known here, where they have visited and their many friends wish for them the joyous hap piness of a perfect wedded life. Arthur Bradley, formerly assessor of the county, and known by most ev ery one in the county, on the first of the month entered upon his duties as cashier of a new bank recently or ganized at Lamar, in Johnson county. He will move his family there to make their future home. We congratulate Arthur upon his election to this re sponsible position, and we believe the confidence reposed in him is most worthily bestowed. North Moose street is in as bad con dition as the oldest citizen can recall. The best remedy is to pave it. Several of the prominent property owners along the street have publicly express ed themselves as in favor of paving that thoroughfare and many others would be in favor of it when shown the benefits. The thing to do is to get every property owner on that street to sign a petition asking the city council to immediately create an improvement district, advertise for bids sand let the contract for the work. No use scraping the mud away and adding more rocks, just to settle down and collect more mud. Do something per manent—pave the street—then we can wash the mud away. As the result of trouble between ne groes Sunday evening, George Shop shire is badly damaged and two ne groe women are in jail awaiting trial. Alaska Lafayette got riled up at George and proceeded to carve on him with a knife, after he had, according to her statement, biffed her one in the face. Alaska then borrowed a gun from the bosom of Mary Jones, anoth er negro girl, and when she again met George shortly afterwards, she put a gun close to his abdomen and pulled the trigger. The fact that the Run was a cheap make 32-ca!ibre is the only thing that kept George from be ing a good negro, for had the bullet had force enough to go through his in nards it would have been goodbye. As 'it is, he is getting better and Alaska and Mary are in jail awaiting their preliminary trial tomorrow. FACT. LOCAL EVIDENCE Evidence that can be verified. Fact is what we want. Opinion is not enough. Opinions differ. Here's a Conway fact. You can test it. J. H. Thayer, farmer, Conway, Ar kansas, says: “I had a great deal of trouble from my back for nearly two years. It pained me when I made a sudden move or lifted. Often I had to sit down and rest. One day I was telling an acquaintance how I suffer ed and he said to try Doan's Kidney Pills. More as an experiment than anything, I got a box of this remedy from the White Drug Co. The re sults of its use were certainly all that I could have desired. In a short time my back was as strong as ever and I could do the hardest kind of_ work without any ill effect. You may con tinue to use my former endorsement, regarding Doan’s Kidney Pills. I have been free from kidney trouble ever ince this remedy cured me.” For sale by all dealers. Price, 50 cents. Foster-Milburn Co., Buffalo, New York, sole agents for the United State.

Atlanta, Ga., Dec. 26—Champions of “a safe and sane” Christmas in the South are today jubilant because of the apparent success of their efforts. Reports generally indicated that th^ celebration had not been attended by the loss of life and property which frequently in the past has character ized observance of the day. In mosts Southern cities rigid regu lations governing the use of fireworks and firearms in connection with the Christmas celebrations have been en forced, with the result that accidents were comparatively few. At New Orleans a campaign against the careless use of firew'orks brought good results. A similar campaign at Birmingham, Ala., resulted in the quietest Christmas that city has ever seen.

Condi tions both overhead and underfoot were distinctly unfavorable to outdoor ' pleasures of any kind, and few people were to be seen on the streets. The number of visitors here for the holi- , days is unusually large, and many en joyable Christmas dinings and enter tainments were given. Only one accident has been reported and the cases of drunkenness or disor derly conduct were remarkably few. AN ALL-ARKANSAS FOOTBALL TEAM ii ' From the Hendrix Bull Dog. As an indication that the cold weather has not killed the football bug: we have been asked by some of the more rabid followers of the grid iron sport to name our selection of an all-state team. Despite the fact that we realize that no two men ever agree on any kind of a sporting prop osition, from the best bait for mud cat to the choice of an all-American football team, nevertheless, we are willing to oblige our friends by sub mitting the following mythological eleven which, in our opinion, could easily take the measure of any like organization in the state: Left end—Croswell, Henderson. Left tackle—Estes, Arkansas. Left guard—Wingfield. Henderson. Center—Posey, Henderson. Right guard—B. Poland, Ouachita. Right tackle—Bland. Henderson. Right end—Harton, Hendrix. Quarterback—Cook, Arkansas. Left half-back—Holmes. Hendrix. Right half-back—May, Arkansas. Fullback—Jackson, Ouachita. One is confronted with a problem at the very outset in the selection of a pair of ends. The season failed to develop a single great end. In fact I there was only one end in the game this season who played that position last year—Lewis of Ouachita, who with Kinney of Arkansas and L. Wade of Henderson, played a consist ent but not brilliant game all year. So it is necessary to shift two veter ans with end experience out of the backfield and place them on the wings. Croswell of Henderson and Harton of Hendrix getting the call. Both started their football careers at end and neither has forgotten the defen sive tricks of the trade. At tackle the selection is relatively easy, Estes of Arkansas and Captain Bland of Henderson topping the field. Other strong tackles were Wingfield of Henderson, Butler Toland of Ouachita and Young of Hendrix. The two former have been shifted to the guards on this mythical team where their 190 pounds avoirdupois each would prove a bulwark hard to pene trate. The guard material was good this year but none of the regulars at this position showed sufficient strength to get a place over Wingfield and To land. Muller of Henderson, Mills of Arkansas and Bishop of Hendrix were the best guards in the state. The center position goes to Posey of Henderson by virtue of his weight, experience and head. A bad knee destroys his effectiveness in some de gree and many would prefer Valen tine of Arkansas or Shinn of Hendrix to the burly Hendorson passer. Cook of Arkansas has very little competition from his brother quarter backs over the state. His punting, passing and prop-kicking raises him easily above his fellows. In addition he was a great broken field runnner, but in this department he was rivalled hy Legg of Hendrix, who was also a great returner of punts. Jamison of Ouachita and Goodgame of Henderson we”e both field generals of a type hard to find in college football, but not brilliant individual players. The half-back positions go to Cap tain May of Arkansas and Captain Holmes of Hendrix, although Parch man of Arkansas, Wade of Henderson and Abrahams of Ouachita may with some justice dispute their claim to the title. May has been frequently mentioned as an all-Southwestern se lection, and although somewhat off form this year, no one will dispute the big Swede’s claim to being the best half back in the state. Holmes of Hendrix is just as big, somewhat faster and almost as good as the Ar kansas Captain. Wade of Henderson would be a great relief man for such a back-field. Parchman and Abra hams are first year men who will shine next year in college football as they have in high school football in the past. The fullback position is open to debate between Jackson of Ouachita, Rudd of Arkansas and Moores of Hen derson, the substitute back-field man who leaped into the calcium toward the close of the season. Jackson gets the call because he is heavier than Moores and faster than Rudd. In ad dition he is probably the most accu rate forward passer in the state Both he and Cook are southpaws and their left hand shots would worry the defense. This team would be a splendid com bination of weight, speed and experi ence. The line from end to end weighs 185 pounds and six of the seven men are reterans. Both ends are dash men and it would take an unusual heaver to get the ball out of the reach of either man. The back field would be equally versatile at plunging the line and running the ends. Cook weighs only 135, but the other three will average 180. Cook and Harton would do the punting for this mythical team, Cook the drop kicking and Jackson the passing. One significant feature of the team is that eight of the eleven men are either former captains or leaders of next year's teams.

Van Buren, Dec. 26.—The second serious accident to occur on the draw span of the Frisco railroad bridge since the work of replacing it with new and much heavier steel began four weeks ago, occurred at 10:30 yes terday. The huge derrick car fell in to the Arkansas river from the false worw in midstream, carrying three men imprisoned in the cab of the en gine rocm. James Kelley, the engineer, suffered i fractured skull and a badly bruised and lacerated back, and was hurried to a Fort Smith hospital on a trolley car. The cab of the derrick car was prac tically submerged w'hen the heavy piece of machinery fell into the river. It quickly filled with water and, by the prompt action of the motorboat patrol that is maintained at the point, the engineer was rescued through a window of the cab. The other two men, Joe Dilby, fireman, and George Turner, derrick foreman, were able to climb out of the cab window upon the drift and from that to the broken false work, from which they were re moved by other workmen. Dilby re ceived several painful bruises, while Turner escaped without a scratch. After he had secured dry clothing he returned to work. MONEY TO LOAN. ■ ■■ Long time loans made on improved farms.
