: ■ THE SPECTATOR, Vol. b . Ozark, Arkansas, August 25, 191b. No. 7 _\_• ■> . , _. _j Outlook For Cotton Good. The large cotton and dry goods merchants of the United States [ are sending out letters to their } customers through the South, giving the prospects for the cot ton market. * They hold that England must use as much cotton as usual to keep the cotton mills busy. The mill hands are mostly women and children, and the war will not interfere with the factories to any great extent. France and other allies of England will also use American cotton as thu Eng lish fleet can protect their com merce on the Atlantic. Germany uses only 9 per cent of the sup ply of cotton or 25 per cent of ^ 4 the export cotton of the United States. As Germany can not get cotton this 25 per cent will have ? to be disposed of elsewhere. Japan has placed orders for a large amount. The manufactures of America now have men in South America to capture that market, which Germany has been supplying heretofore. They claim our factories, can use two million bales more than they £ have been using, and will use that amount, if they supply those ^ countries which Germany has been supplying. They also point to the act of the government in taking steps to purchase ships to carry commerce to foreign countries and in declaring that cotton, tobacco and other staple crops properly secured are basis for bank credit. A nation wide movement among manufactures, merchants and bankers encouraged by the government is rapidly taking form to finance the crops and carry over the surplus cotton that our own mills and foreign coun tries can not use. The prospects now are good for a fair price for the present crop, and the future for Ameri can factories and merchant marine is sure to be great. The great fleet of American ships lost to us by the civil war we will probably win back during this great European war. and markets of South America which we should have controled we will without doubt hold in future. — -« Battle For Bread. The Farmers Institute and Extension School at White Oak School conducted by the Profes sors from the 2nd district Agricultural School at Russell ville was very well attended.

Mr. Karl Hall of the Pleasant Home neighborhood, died Satur day the 21st. He was one of our promising young men. We were sorry indeed to hear of his death.

A prize was offered for the 5th and 6th grade for the best report of the exercises and also a prize to all over the 6th grade. The winners in these contests will be announced in next week’s issue. European Horror. Every day’s news which th< i censors of the European nations allows4o be sent out, gives us : | better idea of the magnitude ol ! the war being waged in thai l unhappy country. We cannol ; conceive of the extent of damagt to the resources of the countries involved or the probable loss ol life. The news given out, does not give us more than a basis for a guess of the number ol men engaged, the number lost in each engagement or even the results of the battles. We only know that while we have reports of the loss of from 3000 to 1500( men killed in dilferent battles, we notice the government claims nothing, but skirmishes have ye! taken place. What the loss in the great battle believed to be going on now between the Allied armies on one side and the im mense German army on the othei will be frightful, and will prob ably amount to a quarter of a million of the best young men of Europe. What that means to the future generations of those countries no man can tell. Stone Hill School Reunion. A meeting is to be held Thurs day night at Stone Hill school house to prepare for a reunion of the old students and teachers of the school. All who are inter ested are requested to be pres ent Thursday night to help lay plans to make the reunion a big success. The reunion will probably be about the Middle of September, and last two days. All the form er students and teachers are urged to go to work to an ise interest in the reunion. Holiness Camp Meeting. Sunday night, Aug 22, marked the closing of one1 of the great est campmeeting in the history of the Franklin County Holiness Association. The weather was fine, attendance unusually large. There were more campers, more i visitors, best order, greater kind ness shown by the public and a . spirit of harmony prevailed among the Holiness people that made a great impression on the entire camp. The music was great, preaching excellent, deep, convicting. Rev. Irick and wife of Pilot, Tex., under God, did a great work, made many friends and won many souls to Jesus in this great camp. Some where be tween 45 and fit) definite profes sions of reclamations, regener ations and entire sanctification. To God be all the glory. Rev. Jas. V. Reed of Indiana was here a few days and spoke on missions. Our hearts were stirred: many tears and sobs and amens could be seen and heard. We believe in home and foreign missions. Prof, Cornish of the Arkansas Holiness College. Vilonia, Ark., came up for the closing of the camp, and spoke on ‘‘Christian Education” to the delight of all who heard him. With all had a great camp. Plans were made to enlarge our borders and undertake great things for God and Holiness. We are going to do lots of work, pay out some money, line things up better, beautify the grounds. [ arrange for new lights and get ready for a greater Holiness camp meeting next year. The W. H. Cooper W. H.

We thank our many friends in and around Ozark for their kind ness, presence and support. J. R. Knox, Pres. Miss Florknck Nich«»ls. Sec. Publicity Will Harm Only Few Public Officials, But Will Be Protection For Many ! IT NOT om.V REMOVES TEMPTATION FROM THE WEAK. BUT PREVENTS FINGER OF FALSE SUSPI CON FROM POINTING AT THE INNOCENT.

The taxdodger, represented In the accompanying cartoon la with ua always. The beat way te get rid ef sxtrava ganoe er actual graft te public places. la to RM.MOVR TBM'PTATION. It is morally wrong for us as citizens to elevate a man to office, entrust him with large amounts of money and im portant duties aud then exert little or no supervision over hia acts. If his character is not equal to the test; if his office soon becomes a means to advance Ills own private ends und the interests of the public are lost sight of; If he becomes corrupt or even merely inefficient or extravagant, are we not to somo extent partlceps cUmints? Bring on tho big torch of publicity and see how quickly the oportunlties which make embezzlers, grafters and crooked politicians of many of our most promising young men will vanish. “You can’t be orooksd In the light,’’ says President Wilson. "I don’t know whether it lias ever been tried or not, but 1 venture to say. purely from o! servation, that It oant ba done.” The tax-dodger will be scorched Into nothingness by the flame of publicity, which will come from section four of Act No ;t. This section provides for publication in the county newspaper of reductions or increases made by the board of equalization or county judge of assessments as fixed by the assessor. Fair Association. At a meeting of Directors of the Fair Association, held at the court house yesterday afternoon, the details of the Fair were gone into and the Ruilding Committee has under immediate considera tion the building of an exhibit hall, and grand stand, and are to have plans for the erection of one submitted during the. week.

Davidson, and R. M. Adams to push the matter rapidly, and already flyers are being printed for distribution at Mulberry pic nic and other points in and sur rounding points over the County. The Committee on Premiums, stated that premium books would be ready for distribution the lat ter part of this week, and copies will be mailed to all parties on request. The Concession Committee composed of Messrs. Greer and Cassell have under their advise ment the Jetting of privileges for shows, lunch stands and all other privileges in connection with stand and ground rights, are doing nicely. All parties present are doing good work, and with the hearty co-operation of the people, Franklin county should win first honors at home and her prize winning products are expected to be sent to the Panama Ex position, there to compete against the world.
