The Little Rock correspond ent of the Independent spent a day in Hot Springs this week, 4 and found the greatest health * resort of the world right now suffering severely from the war, cotton condition, or some un seen force, for practically the only visitors there are the peo ple who were forced to go for i their health. But it is an off ' season, just between the sum mer and winter crop of tourists, * and the month of October is al ways dull in the Valley of Vap ors. All merchants are making pre parations for the biggest season of all, and the railroad officials assure them that thousands will come to Hot Springs this year, because their usual European trip has been shut off, and Hot Springs appeals to them as the 3 next best place. _ , Preparations are being made for the biggest State Fair in the history of that organization and if all plans are carried out ... l _-A- V* rrv*OQT I PY it will excci even m'-' & as fair at Dallas.

GERMANS CLAIM GRADUAL GAINS Toward Dunkirk After Severe Fighting With No Decisive Result As Yet. United Press Dispatch. Berlin, Oct- 21—The war office has announced that though se vere fighting has taken lace on the Yser River in Belgium there has been no decisive result yet, < but the Germans are gradually gaining in the direction of Dun kirk. The German right is slow ly advancing from Lille with the allies stubbornly resisting but being ushed back. The action is general on the right wing.

I Every coynty in Arkansas ! will have its annual session of 1 the quorum, or levying court, next week and one of the most I important subjects to come be fore this body is the question of 'making appropriations for coun ty farm demonstrators. Quite a few of the counties a year ago 'refused to continue their appro priations for demonstrators, but the sentiment has so chang ed now that all of, the old ones are expected back in the fold this year, with a substantial in crease over any previous year. Just at the resent time, when it is conceded that the only way to secure diversification, and I thus prevent a reoccurrence of the present condition, is by put ting the greater part of the work on the shoulders of the county demonstrator. The counties that have no demonstrator will! have to be looked after by state agents, or lose through the nig gardly attitude of the quorum cuort , The government makes appro priation of one dollar for every two nrovided bv the countv. and as the demonstrators are secur ed for about $1,000 per annum, the investment is slight compar ed with the results which are attained. 1 The recently formed associa tion in Little Rock, which will undertake, with the assistance of the merchants and bankers, i and the Farmers Union, the work of preaching crop diversi fication and seeing that the far mers give it a fair trial, will do its first work with the quorum courts, endeavoring to make those counties which have been backward in the past, see the way to the light. • -- - May Die From Snake Bite.
