September 12th, 13,000,000 men be tween the new draft ages of 18 and 21, and 31 and 45 will register for such service as the government may call upon them to perform. It will be the greatest mobilization of man power ever undertaken in the world. Provost Marshal General Crowder says to all state, county and local Councils of Defense, “I want to have every flag flying and every band playing or. Registration Day.” - He is counting upon every county ancf community council to insure the Army and the nation 100 per cent registration. All the machinei-y for the draft is being prepared in advance, so that there may be no d'elay or confusion in the orderly application of the new Selective Service law.

T’V RAUGHON’S Practical Business College of Little Pock, Arkansas, announces the opening of a 1 B Three Months Summer School, duiing June, July and August, for the benefit cf teachers ar.d others, w ho cannot remain in school longer than that time. 1 he work will be exactly the same as that of our regular departments and under supervision of best educators in the South. Those who desire intensive work in Shorthand, Stenotypy, Touch Typewriting, Bookkeeping and higher accounting, English, cfEce practice, multi graphing. etc., will be given an opportunity such as is not provided elsewhere in this territory. The ecuises offered follow: ' / and patriotic music wherever possi ble. It is suggested that Community louneil and patriotic meetings be held, and speakers provided to lay this information before the people, that they may be fully advised of the provisions of the law and the re quirements of the nation in this hour of crisis. Special meetings for negroes and foreign-bom groups should be held' wherever necessary to explain to j them their duties. Every individual in the remotest j sections of Arkansas, as well as I throughout the nation, must be reach ed with an irresistable appeal to his patriotism and his conscience, and the government is relying largely up on the Council of Defense system to Secure this result. PROHIBITION BILL PASSED BY SENATE Washington, Sept. 6.—The $12,000, 000 emergency agricultural appro priation bill, with it3 rider for na tional prohibition from next July 1 until after the American Armies are demobilized after the end of the war, was passed tonight by the senate without a roll call. Before final pas sage, the senate voted 45 to 6, to re tain the prohibition rider. A final effort to postpone the effective date i of the “dry” legislation to December 30, 1919, was defeated. The bill now goes to the house, and, because of the many amendments in serted by the senate, it undoubtedly will be sent to conference. Prohibi tion leaders, however, expect the house to agree to the “dry” rider. Senators voting against retaining the “dry” legislation in the bill were Brandegee of Connecticut; Gerry of Rhodie Island; Phelan of California; Pomerene of Ohio; Ransde’-l of Lou | isiana, and Underwood of Alabama, while many members absent and pair 1 ed favored the amendment. | A.s returned to the house, the pro hibition clause—compromise effected | last week by senate “wet” and “dry” i \At the Churches \ PRESBBYTERIAN CHURCH.

It is the duty and priv ilege of ail tne members of the church to malje the '•ongreo’otion, or class, to -which they belong, the very best. It is for their homies and families and for themselves that they are to work while serving their God. W. B. HAYS. ===== —. ' Moore’s Air Tight For soft coal, ! I s acK.

After passage of the bill the senate conferee—all regarded friendly to the legislation—were appointed: Gore of Oklahoma, Smith of South Carolina, Smith of Georgia, Kenyon of Iowa, and France of Maryland. Prohibition advocates believe the bill soon will go to the president, who participated in conferences culminating in the senate compromise for extension of the ef fective date. The war revenue bill and house plans for a recess, imme diately after its passage, until about October 1, however, were admitted obstacles. MERCHANTS SHOULD FAVOR THE UNIONS. The following from “The Brick layer, Mason and Plasterer” puts into definite form a query that often en ters the minds of trade unionists. Ed itor Maas reasons this way: “When a workingman gets a dol lar a day he cannot possibly be a two dollar customer at the grocery, the dry goods store, the shoe store or any place^of business. High wages help the merchant every time. Trade unions tend to raise wages and there fore make the mechanic and labor er a better customer. Labor unions also have a tenJency to materially ihrwf-prt flip hours of labor, thereby j WARNING ORDER. I - i Jn the Chancery Court of Jackson County, Ark.

The man of busi ness who fails to lea’.ize the truth of these assertions is behind the times and should read up. Long hours and small wages are among cue causes of nanics and hard times. The trade un ion is unalterably opposed to both these evils. “The merchant who expects to do a good business on a starvation rate of wages i3 on a par with the farmer who would, expect a good crop without planting any seed. Intelligent store keepers are beginning to realize that the question of their prosperity is in a large measure bound up in the wel fare of the wage-earning class. What ever will advance the welfare of the one will just as certainly advance the welfare of the other also. “Merchants and business men who are antagonistic to the trade union movement are antagonistic to their own best interests. There is no the oiy or sentiment about this; it is straight out and' out matter of fact.
