Careful diet is of utmost importance to
men and women past fifty years of age;
it keeps up their strength, and the oil
food in Scott’s Emulsion is a nourishing
food, a curative medicine and a sustaining
tonic to regulate the functions.
It contains the medicinal fats of pure
cod liver oil and science proves that they
furnish twice as much energy as other
foods—then too, it creates pure blood,
sharpens the appetite, relieves rheuma
tism, strengthens the body and alleviates
the ailments due to declining years.

Little Rock, June 18.—All the
county teachers institutes are in ses
sion rhrougnout the state, and the at
tendance is unusually large, and the
work of a very high standard, accord
ing to the statements of State Supt.
George B. Cook, and Rural Supervisor
J. L. Bond, who have attended a
number of them.
Another notable feature of the in
stitute work this year is the intro
duction of practical agricultural tech
ing by representatives of the U. S.
Agricultural Department, the Agr«
cultural Schools and the Agricultural
College of the University. At least
forty of the seventy-five counties are
being reached. In a number of the
counties the teachers are so
thoroughly aroused over the workj
that they ore voluntarily extending
the sessions to two weeks and even
a month at -Heir own expense.

made of the I and R petition that has 1
been filed for it. The purpose is to;

So far as known, there is no special

Morrilton's waterworks system was
sharply criticised in a report bv a
special committee of the city council
submitted at its last meetin. The re
port. in part, is as follows:
“Our first investigation was that of
the water system. We find this water
in very Lad condition, being pumped
directly from the muddy creek and
with no filtering whatever. We were
told by the manager of the water
works system that the filter was out
of order and that it was impossible
to filter the water at this time. The
manager has promised to begin at
once to give us clear water, by pump
ing day and night into a reservoir or
settling basin and then pump the wat
er into the stand pipe. This will en
able them to furnish clear water until
the filtering system can be repaired.
"We find that the Waterworks Co.
has IS hydrants in service, all in first
class shape, and we also find that
some of the hydrants are closer to
gether than needed. We find that the
water pressure is up to the standard
and we are assured by the manager
that in case of fire, if the stand pipe
was empty, that they could give direct
pressure from the pumps and could
furnish sufficient water for protection.
“We have inspected the property oi
the city fire company and find some
things badly needed. They have 1,000
feet of first-class hose that can he fit

in good repair, the hook and ladder!

Saved Girl’s Life
“I want to tell you what wonderful benefit I have re
ceived from the use of Thedford’s Black-Draught,” writes
Mrs. Sylvania Woods, of Clifton Mills, Ky.
“It certainly has no equal for la grippe, bad colds,
liver and stomach troubles. I firmly believe Black-Draught
saved my little girl’s life. When she had the measles,
they went in on her, but one good dose of Thedford’s
Black-Draught made them break out, and she has had no
more trouble. I shall never be without
in my home.” For constipation, indigestion, headache, dizzi
ness, malaria, chills and fever, biliousness, and all similar
ailments, Thedford’s Black-Draught has proved itself a safe,
reliable, gentle and valuable remedy.
If you suffer from any of these complaints, try Black
Draught It is a medicine of known merit Seventy-five
years of splendid success proves its value. Good for
young and old. For sale everywhere. Price 25 cents.

Little Rock, June 23.—A movement
was started last night at the meeting
of the Little Rock city council for
the building of another bridge across
the Arkansas river at this point.
There are now three railroad and one
public bridge. The proposed new
bridge is to be built at the foot of
Broadway, and it is expected will cost
in the neighborhood of $600,000. An
improvement district is being formed,
and a considerable donation will bf
made by the county.
Texarkana, Tex., June 18.—Per
sistent and apparently well-authen
ticated rumor for the past several
days has it that Superintendent O.
L. Dunaway of the Texas public
schools, who has served four years
as such and was re-elected for an
other term by the School Board which
retired about a month ago, is slated
for removal by the new School Board.
The only active opposition to Mr.
Dunaway is said to come from a 1
secret religious organization known j
as the Knights of Luther, which is l
said to be strongly anti-catholic. It
is said they base their objection to
Mr. Dunaway on the fact that Mrs.!
Dunaway is of Catholic parentage,
although it is asseited she has never
been a communicant of that church.'
It is reported the congregation of j
the Pine Street Presbyterian church,
where Mr. Dunaway has taught a ]
class in Sunday school the past two :
years, on last Sunday passed strong
resolutions endorsing Mr. Dunaway’s'
views on religion and also his worth-!
iness and general fitness as a teacher, j
He has strong firiends in all the j
churches, and it is known these in-1
tend to make a determined fight to'
see that he is retained as superin

rort the purpose of ascertaining
whether it would he possible to se
cure a lower bid on the construction
of the proposed annexes to the public
school building, the board has em
ployed John ('. Hamilton to make an ’
estimate on the cost of the work, the i
bids submitted last Monday having I
been rejected on account of being,
about >4,000 above the estimates of
Architect C. L. Thompson. If it is
found that it will be possible to con
struct the annexes as planned within
the funds appropriated for the pur
pose, new bids will he called for, but
if not, the plans will be revised.
It has been definitely decided not to
attempt to borrow any additonal
funds for building purposes, as the
board considers that the indebtedness
to be created by the improvements on
the building as estimated will in
crease the debt to a point beyond
which''it would not be wise to go.

article in its first issue a paper by
Dr. John W. Conger, president of
Central College of this city, on "The
Ethical Relation o‘f Our Schools.” Dr.
Conger urges a closer reiationsnip oe
tween the denominational institution
and the public or state schools, col
leges and universities. The religious
school, he says, has, however, a dis
tinctive place which cannot be filled
by any other institution. “The dis
tinctive function of the denomination
al colleges," l)r. Conger says, "is the;
first to spiritualize the educational
ideals of our whole educational sys
tem, and, in the second place, to pre
pare spiritual leaders, not only for
distinctive service in the church, but
for the state and for business enter
prises and for general educational
work. The small denominational col
lege has always furnished the great
leaders for our country in every line
of endeavor. Their graduates have
been the champion of reform in gov
ernment. religion, society and busi
ness. The state institutions are mar
shaling the masses of students and
are giving thorough equipment and
splendid instruction and should rec
ognize the value of the contribution of
the distinctively spiritual ideals of
the Christian college."

Little Rock, June 2b.—There were
fewer changes made than expected in
the personnel of the St. Francis
l/ovce Hoard. There had been rumors
that Gov. Hays would make a clean
sweep, but he contented himself with
making only four changes. There
are twenty-four members of the
board, three from each of the eight
counties composing the district, and
the terms are for three years each.
Great interest attaches to thes ap
pointments, as the St. Francis I^evee
Board is looked upon as one of the
important political factors of North-j
east Arkansas. The appointments
made by Gov. Hays are as follows:
Mississippi County—W. D. Grav
ctte to succeed John A. Lovewell.
Cross County—D. S. Watrous to
succeed H. A. Black.
Phillips County— E. C. Horner, t
succeed himself.
Lee County—J. Lawson Hughes to
succeed H. Fletcher Roleson.
Poinsett County—Marion W. Hazel,
to succeed himself.
Crittenden County—J. M. McBee.
to succeed himself.
Craighead County—Thomas Bur
ress, to succeed W. M. Armstrong.
St. Francis County—F. W. DeRos
sitt, to succeed himself.
Messrs. Watrous. Hughes, Burress,
and Gravette, the new appointees, are
all partisans of Governor Hays. Thos.
Burress, the new member for Craig
head, is mayor of Jonesboro.

them—have found that it is no longer

Tone has been made to take the
place of calomel right from the start.

is as a remedy and that Dodson
never makes extravagant statements.

From Monday’s Dally
Mayor J. Frank Jones today an
nounced the appointment of a list of
delegates from Conway to attend the
meeting called by Mayor Charles E.
Taylor to be held at Little Rock Wed
nesday, June 24, for the purpose of
boosting and organizing a campaign
for the adoption of constitutional
amendment No. 14, J,he proposed bond
amendment. An amendment similar
to this one was proposed in 11>12 and
was carried by a majority of 28,000,
receiving majorities in 61 of the 75
counties, but was declared by the su
preme court to be inoperative on ac
count of five amendments being sub
mitted at the same election. Those
favoring the amendment immediately
made provision for its resubmission
and filed the necessary petitions over
a year ago.

Jones from Conway are Wm J.

Washington dispatches today car
ry the information that George R.
Alewine has been appointed as post
master of Greenbrier, Faulkner coun
ty succeeding William M. Lyon.
While the appointment of Mr. Ale
wine, who is a former Normal student
and a progressive young citizen of
that vicinity, will doubtless prove sat
isfactory to the patrons of that office,
the news of Postmaster Lyon's retire
ment will be received with genuine
regret by his hundreds of friends.
For about 20 years Mr. Lyon has
rendered faithful and efficient ser
vice and has built up the office until
it is now one of the most important
in the county, having four rural
routes and several star routes. Per
sonally acquainted with eveiy man,
woman and child in a radius of 10
miles of Greenbrier, Mr. Lyon took
great pains to see that every letter,
paper and parcel which came to his
office was delivered promptly to the
correct addressee. If by chance the
Log Cabin Democrat failed to send sv
Greenbrier subscriber his paper, this
office was sure to hear from Mr.
Lyon, and if the missing paper did
not arrive by the following mail we
would hear again. It is this kind of
personal service in addition to the
regular duties of his position that has
made Postmaster Lyon a warm favor
ite with his patrons.
When the order was made classi
fying postmasters in fourth-clas3
offices in the civil service and the ex
aminations were held here last
winter, Mr. i.yon decided, on account
of impaired health, not to make ap
plication for re-appointm^nt. Physi
cally he is a man of immense pro
portions and aften calls himself the
“biggest Republican in the state.”
Of recent years his health has not
been so vigorous as formerly and he
is beginning to find it difficult to at
tend to the duties of the position with
his usual energy. Iiis many friends
wish for him, however, many remain
ing years of health and happiness.
Among other recent fourth-class
appointments for near-by postoffices
are the re-appointment of G. E.
Gentry at Guy and the appointment
of Frank J. McClure at Gleason and
Odes E. Roed at Austin, J.onoke
