Ozark, Arkansas, December 1, 191b. No. 36 What The Farmer Did. A city man recently visited his “country cousin.” The man from the city, wishing to explain the joys of metropolitan life, said: “We have certainly been having fun the last few days. Tuesday we autoed to the country club, and golfed until night, then trollied back to town and danced until morning.”: The country cousin was not to be stumped in the least, so be- j gan telling of some of the pleas ures of the simple life: “We have had pretty good times here too. One day we buggied out to Uncle I Ned’s and went out to the back lot, where we base-balled all thatj afternoon. In the evening we sneaked up into the attic and I pokered until morning.” A sturdy old farmer who was listen ing, not to be outdone, took up the conversation at this point and said: “I was having some fun about this myself. I muled to the corn field and gee-hawed until sundown. Then 1 suppered until dark, and piped until D o’clock, after which 1 bedsteaded until the clock lived, after which I breakfasted until it was time to go muling again. ” Exchange. —-- ..

ARK. j Neal McLaughlin Respited.! .Circuit Clerk Waterfield re-j ceived a phone message just be fore noon from Judge J.V. Bom land saying that he was called to Little Rock yesterday after noon in the Neal McLaughlin case. He appealed to Governor Hays this morning for a pardon or a a few days delay, but Gov. Hays refused him as he had all previous appeals. Judge Bour land then went before the Su preme Court and asked for a stay of the execution till the transcript in the case could be prepared and presented to that court. The court granted the I stay and work on the transcript will be hurried to get the case before that court. Gov. Hays refused to see the girl in the case, and told those presenting the petition that she would have to go before Judge Evans and tell her story and if Judge Evans would recommend! a stay, he would grant it. M .nmrhlin hns imp more! chance to prove his innocence, and if innocent, we hope he will he able to make clear proof. That’s What’s The Matter. A carload of hay was unloaded here last week. A carload of corn chops will soon be on the way, the: meat car will be here in a few days and most of the stores are selling Colorado pota toes at $1.25 per bushel, and that's what’s the matter with | this part of Polk county, Arkan-; sas. No wonder times are hard when all the cash that can be scraped up goes out of the com munity for something to eat and to feed. Cove correspondent of the Mena Star. The si line unloading process may be witnssed in Clarendon any week and .just so long as such practices are continued, the farmer will be at the mercy of the speculators who manipu late the cotton market. The greatest advances in the price of cotton always come after the crop is out of the hands of the producer. With a $02,000,000 cot ton crop in 1913, statistics show that $(>8,000,000 was sent out of the state for meats, canned ■ nrul ♦/»«»« lof 11 iVo T rt fhn ! the past it has been argued that ! feed and other products cannot i be profitably grown in this state, and that it is better to raise cot ton and buy such things from others, but in the face of the above figures it seems that argu- j ment is not true at all.

Owing to the sickness of one of the drill men and the absence of another during the past week, only the day shift has been working on the oil well six miles south of this place. Last night a night shift was put on again and it is hoped that there will be no more delays. The report which was circulated around town quite extensively last week to the effect that drilling was prac tically at a stand still owing to the hard rock which had been encountered, was merely a pess imistic dream, when as a matter of fact the drill is chugging sand and not overly hard rock.

BBBHBBHIHiHHKZZZZZZZZZZDHHHBBU *4 Farm Schools Do Great Work One of the most striking feat ures of the Profitable Farming Campaign is the part being tak en in it bv the four District Agri cultural Schools. Before the campaign started even active interest was taken in it by V. C. Kays, of the Jonesboro School, G. A. Cole, of the Russellville School, Frank Horsfall, of the Monticello School. These farm ing men not only got out and worked on the campaign them selves, but they enlisted the sup port of the men and women asso ciated with them in the schools. k No other State perhaps has such schools as these in Arkan sas. They are called by those who know their work, “The Backbone of the State-’ They are the result of the pioneer work done by Geo. A. Cole and the Farmer's Union. Some years ago the farmers all over the State saw need for such schools as these, and they made a successful tight to get them. The Schools are located in the geographical center of each of the four sections of the State. There are no “entrance require ments”. If a boy or girl is fif teen years of age, he or she may attend any one of these schools at a minimum cost. The idea in * ,1 1 IWV lUrvan LIaU /AA1 O MTO C< f A train the farmer boy to be a bet ter farmer, and the farmer gin to be a better home-maker. That was four years ago. Today the schools have over one thou sand farmer boys and girls, not only from Arkansas, but from other States, who are training themselves, not to teach farm ing, but to go back to the farm home and make''farming and home building a sucess. One of the reasons for the success of these schools is that each one is managed by a local board of live members, all of whom are farmers. Thus, the schools are run bv farmers, are tilled with farmers’ children, and the instuctors are farmer men and farmer women. They are schools of the farmers, and by the farmers, and for the farm. The cost to the State per student was only $90 and this paid tui tion, room, heat and light and, all the incidentals except board. The board bill for each student for nine months was about $100 and the text book bill averaged only about $7.50 apiece. Some of the boys and girls are working their way through the schools, and the schools now have applications for three thou sand young men and w’ometr who w-ant to work their way through. Of course all of these applications cannot be taken care of owing to lack of accommoda tion. The farmers who have supported the schools are now to get more money to build more dormitories to take care of the earnest young men and women who want to live on and build up the farms in this State. Theory has no part in the schools. Work is what counts. 'Phe boys work in the fields and with the live stock, and in the shops. The girls work in the kitchen and laundries and in the sewing rooms, and in the domes tic art departments. They learn not only how to plan and take care of a home, but how to make home attractive. ‘ The man who marries one of our farmers girls from the Agi cultural Schools is a lucky man” says one of the most successful farmers in the State. “The good these schools are doing cannot be estimated. The farm ers who control them and whose boys*and girls are being educat ed in them know that Arkansas is being made a better and a richer State for this work” Cheap Sheds Save Seed. “More feed is required for cattle exposed to weather than for those fed in a warm, dry shed,” says Prof. W. R. Wheel ock, of the College of Agricul ture of the University. “Econo my demands that the few1 head of stock be protected from cold, wet weather, in order that feed stuffs may last until the spring pastures are open.” “Thousands of cattle, horses and mules. ” says Prof. Wheelock, “will stand out during the cold, rainy, dreary days of our Ark ansas winter with their backs humped up and their hair stand ing out straight, looking deject ed and forlorn and half starved. Mr. Farmer, do you know that it takes a fourth more feed to get the same results from stock treated in this way? Perhaps the stock is used to it and wouldn’t stay in all the time if they had a shelter, but we are, or ought to be doing the manag ing and can well afford to see to it that they are in during stormy weather, especially at night. Many of us are going to be short of feed and it will take hard earned cash to buy what we lack. We can ill afford to spare that cash. .Many of us will need it to buy the necessaries for our child i i tin a i t'll ctiiu uur nuuica. vv ity nut begin right now and put up a cheap shelter iur our stock, keep them out of the storm this win ter. make a big saving on our feed bill, and have our stock come out in much better condi tion for the springs work. We need every drop of milk that the cow can give. She will give more on the same feed if kept up at night under a good dry shelter out of the wind. “Just set up some posts on a well drained spot, make a pole frame across their tops, put on a thatch roof of corn stalks, brush, straw, etc., board or slab up the north side and the two ends, and throw in some dead weeds or straw for litter. Put the feed boxes in this shed. A day's work and a few nails and some bailing wire to bind on the roof frame is all it need to cost. Some men have one now, and you should have one as good or better.” -—- .— ENTERPRISE It has been raining the last few days and settled the smoke which hung over the most of the state. There was a large crowd at Sunday school Sunday morning. A lot of young folks around here wrent to prayer meeting at Marble Hill Sunday night.
