The newspaper men must re gret to chronicle the capture of Harry Thaw', not because his arrest terminates a thrilling es- j cape and mystery story, because | his fight against extradition j continues the sensation, but be cause newspapers, like individu als, have a feeling for the under dog, the criminal who has par tially atoned for crime in prison service. Moreover, in Thaw’s case, ■ much public sentiment stood with him even after lie had lmir-, derqd his fellow-man, all ol | which was rather unusual be- j cause the “big rich" who commit j crimes, as a rule, uo noi appeal, to popular sympathy. We don't j regard sympathy as necessary in such cases; they have their money, their able lawyers, their bribery oftentimes to give every advantage in the courts and what more could they want in evading punishment and jus tice? And while this is the pop ular viewpoint, we find in Thaw’s case, that his wealth, position and prominence militated against any escape from the strong arm of the law- He battled in vain, even in securing acquittal for murder, for Matteawan was no better than Sing Sing unless to his pride and later opportunity to escape. No prosecution was ever more capably, vigorously and unceasingly directed than that f the young millionaire. Because he had means and the ^position to use his wealth corruptly in his fight for life and freedom, the public eye was upon Jerome and the asylum keep OOOOOOOOOOOOdOOOOOOCOQOOOQi ers. While these public ser vants might never hav*» :.'lie:.. had not the public eye been to cused upon their even mow. the interest of the poop It was such that they were called upon to exert unnatural and watchfulness in order to avoir suspicion. And thus we note, in the wry columns which startled the country with an account of Thaw’s escape, the arrest of the old guard, whose life stood un blemished for twenty years, now charged with conspiracy in per mitting the escape of Thaw. And so it has been all along. No pub lic official could show favors to Thaw. If he did. the public said he was bribed. And as it has been through a murder trial and in his many efforts to prove his sanity and secure release, so it will he in the fight to bring him back to confinement. His wealth will be his greatest mill stone to carry. Good Roads Days. September 3 and 1 are good roads days in Arkansas and the County Good Roads Association should formulate plans for car rying out this work in Jackson county. The Independent* wants to see Jackson county aroused upon the issue of good roads. The proper time to start is now in joining the state-wide movement and accomplishing something on these good roads days, Septem ber 3 and 4. While every able-bodied man is urged to give his time upon these two days, money is need ed to pay for the bridges, cul verts and other improvements and the business men of New port ought to enlist willingly. The Independent, to start the movement pledges $5 and will publish the contributions of all others.

How to Avoid Them and the Se rious Consequences of Neg lect, “Pi t m • up somethin? to knock the ms! iris. doctor.” remarked a sallow fi 1, si klv looking man, entering a prominent physician’s office the other day. The doctor stepped to his medicine rase, took down a couple of bottles, mixed a preparation which he handed to the patient with the customary advice to ‘shake well aril follow directions,’ and resumed his seat. “Such cases are frequent,” replied the doctor in answer to a question. “The warm days in 1 damp, chilly nights are certain ma’aria breeders and are most serious in those who have neglected to keep their stomach, liver and bowels in good condition. Su h persons are full of the impurities on which the malarial germ thrives, .and it is from this class that typhoid f • r, pneumonia, Bright’s Disease, small pox and yellow fever claim most of their victims whenever these dis »ases are prevalent. The pro; er way to guard against the malarial germ and the serious diseases which follow it is to get into good condi tion by taking a reliable remedy that will keep the bowels clear and the liver healthy^ ami to continue with it at fre quent intervals during the sickly seasot# 1 A dose of Prickly Ash Bitters three or four times a week will do all of this, be sides stimulating the digestion, improv ing the appetite and keeping the bodily energy at the highest pitch. < Prickly Ash Bitters is known every I where as a system tonic and bowel regu j lator. It not only removes all traces of malarial poison from the system, but tones up the vital organs,, gives new streng’h and vigor, makes the body strong and the brain active. "Prickly A*h Bitters is the best all-around medicine for the family I ever used. During the vast ten years I have always kept it in my house, whenever any of my family show signs of mala ■ ia. kidney trouble, indigestion or constipation j i few doses is all that is needed to make them aell and hearty again.—\V H.

This is true in Arkansas and Jackson county just as in Kentucky and to the citizens of the county, who seek these advantages, we ' would call their attention to what Newport offers in churches of every denomination and a good public school. Our new high school building would be a credit to any city in the state, and our instructors are men and ' women of ability and experience j in the profession. Our High i School offers free tuition to the 1 graduates of any of the common I school districts of the county, i and Newport invites you to come | to your county seat for the in struction of your children. ! - i j Prayer will not bring rain, de clares Governor Hodges of Kan j sas and refuses to call a day for prayer for relief from drouth in j that state.
