' The Citizen is in receipt of five pages of closely written mimeograph “junk” sent out by Daddy Walls and Billy Hutton of the state central committee, boosting the candidacy of Geo. W. Hays and heralding him as the Democratic nominee for governor at the election to be held on the 23d inst. with the . request that we publish same in our columns. This bunch of steam roller en gineers have opened “head quarters in Little Rock for the! sole purpose of defeating the I Hon. S. Brundidge in the coming | contest and to attempt to right i their wrongdoings before the masses who are more thoroughly convinced daily that Hays did not receive a majority of the honest votes cast in the primary last month. Their efforts in behalf of Havs and machine Dolitics are i nothing less than brazen and represent the quintessence of nerve and gall. This paper will not publish their misstatements and refuses to be an accessory to the high-handed attempts of a selfish few to railroad a candi date into office who is not the Democratic nominee as shown by the election ticket just cer tified by the secretary of state, and backed up by the courts of competent jurisdiction. No, thanks, ye hungry horde of pie-eaters and political spec ialists, your “good readable, printable copy’’ is not wanted here, neither are your canned editorial squibs of cunning words and twisted phrases. We are a. busy editor, as you say, and your offer to “take off the hands of the busy editor some of the detail work of pre paring articles” is too cute for comment, but we are not too busy to edit our own columns for awhile yet. and if an emer gency should arise to incapaci tate us from doing so, we would prefer to fill up our columns with stale boiler plate rather than impose your nauseating ef fusions upon our readers. We know your game. Skidoo—Searcy Citizen. “Defeminization.” “A large percentage of high school girls wish they were boys,” says a distinguished col lege president, who deplores women's advent into business. He fears for the "defeminiza tion" of the fair sex, which this progress would seem to imply, and certainly he has good cause for concern. One might easily be led to believe that the girly girl, of flounces and laces and perfumes and dimples and sweet depend ent air is passing into tradition, and in her stead a stalwart sis ter comes to the front with hard muscles and cold eye to wrest with man for mastery of the prosaic material things of life. It is hard to see the sweet girl of poetry and romance go in this way. But is this substi tution of an active for a passive personality not a higher evolu tion of the sex which is both to her and the world’s advantage? Does not every triumph she wins in every avenue of new endeavor she enters make her a more valuable member of the community, and a fitter compan ion for man? Is not what she is accomplishing for herself raising man also to higher stan dards ? The remarkable advancement women have made in the busi ness world and the professions, particularly in medicine, proves more than her right to be there —it proves her thorough fit i ness. Success is the highest i test, and certainly it cannot be denied that women have achiev ! ed abundant success in the | fields formerly held sacred to man. There is scarcely a de partment of masculine activity which woman has not invaded, acquitted herself with credit, and often with distinction. Even “defeminization” may not be such a very dreadful thing, with such results. It is not the first time the sex has been “defeminized”. In the | old days when the women did all the hard work, and the men sat about and gossiped, a “de feminization” set in that ended only in making woman a butter fly of sentimentality and ca price. Now the pendulum is swinging back again. Perhaps the further the Amer ican girl removes herself from the conditions of sex servitude which a less civilized world brought, the finer will be the type of developed womanhood she will represent. But whatever she is, man will take her as she is.—Memphis News-Scimitar. Fortunes Spent In Trousseaux. The elaborate trousseaux of mean here of the smart set would have made s queen bride of a century ago open her eyea with amassment. It Is an ordinary thing for the daughter of a millionaire on getting her bridal OB' try ready to order 30 or 10 hsUk trimmed with ostrich and other feath ers, to harmonise with aa many gowns. Every gown needs a distinct hat. The equipment of a rich bride la looked on as Incomplete if It dues cot contain at least 30 gowns and such a troussean does not mean the bride will get no more dresses for • year. When lingerie and little orna ments also are taken Into considers 1 ilon. It Is plain a young girl In New York's smart set must spend many thousands of dollars for her outfit and «overnl women have spent $80,000 to jA 00,000. Big Trade In Frozen Meat.

Chap pell of this town, says: “I suffered for five years with womanly troubles, also stomach troubles, and my punishment was more than any one could tell. I tried most every kind of medicine, but none did me any good. I read one day about Cardui, the wo man’s tonic, and 1 decided to try it. f had not taken but about six bottles until I was almost cured. It did me more good than all the other medicines I had tried, put together. My friends began asking me why I looked so well, and 1 told them about Cardui. Several are now taking it.” Do you, lady reader, suffer from any of the ailments due to womanly trouble, such as headache, backache, sideache, sleeplessness, and that everlastingly tired feeling? If so, let us urge vou to give Cardui a trial. We feel confident it will help you, just as it has a million other women in the past hali century. Begin taking Cardui to-day. You won’t regret it.

NO MAN-FLY ON MONUMENT Great Commotion at Oepital on Re port That New Yorker Was Sealing Shaft. Rumors that a New York "human fly,” who has been scaling office build ings In that city, was ’ climbing the side of the 555-foot Washington monu ment, gave this city no end of excite ment the other day. Someone discovered a Mack spot on the side of the shaft, about 1M feet from tbe top, and then the report started. Hundreds rushed toward tbe monu ment grounds, a half mile from tbe center of tbe city. Along Pennsyl vania avenue crowds ooliected nt ev ery corner and windows and door ways rapidly filled with people. Newspaper photographers, who were early on the scene, and other investigators brought b«0E word that the supposed figure only a spot left by last night's heavy «afn; but up lO CLU eony uuur uu rcuuoyr ranla avenue still insisted they could see the figure move. The war department, which con trols the monument, was besieged with telephone calls. Nearly three hours after the first explanation a telephone message from the capltol said that congressmen were watching the spot through opera glasses, and were convinced it occa sionally moved a little. Has No Jurisdictloa, One of Representative Kahn's Cali fornia constituents wrote to him not long ago inclosing blue prints of a de vice he had thought up for "scrutlnlu ing heavenly bodies," as he put it. He wished to have an appropriation of a million dollars or so from con gress to perfect his device, so that tb« humblest citizen could know Jnst what Is going on in Mars and various celestial points. Kahn didn't like to offend the man with a flat refusal of congress to a^ propriate this money, and be put tt t* him like this: "We have gone over the situation carefully, and the best lawyers among us are of the opinion that we can do nothing for the reason that congress has no Jurisdiction over heavenly bodies.” Stimulating Effect of Advertising, And one of the most wonderful things about advertising Is the stimu lating effect It has on the advertise?, whether It be stor> factory or city.
