Special to Independent. Little Rock, Nov. 7.— The resignation of Gen. I». W. Green as adjutant general of the Ar kansas National Guard was formally accepted today by Governor Hays, and at the same time the appointment of Capt. Lloyd England of Little Rock was announced as his successor.1 I The reason assigned by General Green for his resignation is his advanced age. Up has had an intermittent sendee of <13 years with the militia, and feels deeply grieved by the suspen sion of government funds be cause of weaknesses in the Guard organization, and the failure of the legislature to make any provisions for its sup port. Capt- Englad, who becomes (den. Lloyd England,, is a retir ed regular army officer, having seen an extended service in the Orient. He is a son of J. E. England, the Little Rock bank er and capitalist. There is a great deal of specu lation as to the outcome of the Arkansas National Guard’s struggle for existence. It is predicted by many that the re*g iment will probably be reduced to six companies. “The < luard will be smaller and better than ever," remarked one of the otlicers. "The inefficient and careless companies will be weeded out and those that sur vive will be established on a firm basis of regular army reg ulations and requirements. \ feel sure that we will get the federal appropriation for the Guard that is being temporari ly held up.” Ma.j. General Haynes, “Father of the Arkansas State Guard,’ is deeply interested in the late of the organization with which he was connected for so many years, and declares that the bill for the support of the Guard was defeated in the legislature only through the influence of cheap demagogues who thought to make political capital of it. Seven Counties Adopt Uniformity. Special to Independent. Little Rock, Nov. 7. —The State Superintendent has been notified of the adoption of uni formity of text books in the counties of Renton, Dallas, Iz ard, Montgomery, Like, Scott and White count ies. J'his makes about two-thirds of the state that has adopted uniformity, un der the optional law. It is for a term of six years in each coun ty, and where it has been tried once it is very seldom that the county goes back to the old sys i tern. Style is like a shadow. You can point your finger at it, but you can’t put your finger on it. It doesn’t shout—it whispers. It aims as much for repression as for expression. A case in point— “Barrister” Walking and Business Boot—$5 Made of Black Calf or Russet Leather—roundish, sloping toe—perforated cap medium arch—low, square, solidly planted heel top corners curved off— invisible eyelets—Gothic hooks— a boot with that deceptive plainness which is the quintessence of present day “smartness.” ^ There are 97 exclusive Regal Shops and 900 Accredited Rega, Agents.
