TO SURVEY THE SLATE DEPOSITS Prof. Purdue of the State University and His Corps Leave for Montgom ery County to Begin Work — Will Take Three Months. •- I The survey of the slate fields ! of Arkansas, as provided for Sen ator Legate’s bill passed by the last legislature, is to begin at! once. The work will be done with the co-oporation of the United j States Geological Survey, the na tional government paying tnree fiflhs of the cost and the state of Arkansas two-fifths, as provided in the bill. Prof. A. H. Purdue of the State University of Arkansas, at Fayetteville, who will have i charge of this important work, left Mena this morning- for SI a t ington, where the beginning will be made. In his corps of geolo gists were R. D. Mesler, Hugh i Miser and Fred Tilman, all ol Fayetteville and in charge of their outfit was a teamster and a cook, j They started out with two wagons, six horses, tents and general 'camp supplies and equip ment. They expect the task be fore them to occupy their time j fully up to the middle of Septen* her. Mr. Higam of Chicago, general manager of the Southwestern Slate company of Slatington, ac companied the party and will re main in the field a week or more. Prof. Purdue intends to investi- : gate all slate deposits of the state \ so far as possible. He siys that jit is well known that the greater | portion is in Polk and Montgom ery counteis, but his work will j probably carry him as far East as ! Hot Snrines. The government many years J ago surveyed and made maps of the slate fields of the East which have been cf great value to all interested in the industry, and it t is probable that the work to be done here in the next three | months will do more to develop '.he industry in Arkansas than anything that has been done here in past years. If You Hire a Horse At a livery stable you ought to treat him as if he were your own. If you drive out ten miles you ought not to attend to your wants until you see him properly cared for. If an honest man you will remember that you are under a two-fold obligation to that animal—an obligation to its, owner and an obligation to the ani mal. You are the debtor of both, and though you pay the price of the horse no money can release you from the duty and moral claim involved j in the bargain between yourself and the owner. To neglect the poor speechless beast that cannot appeal , to the commiseration of a passer-by j is simply unpardonable, and the I man who is guilty of such neglect is worse than a man. Our Dumb Animals. " " Duty of County Examiners. Superintendent Mashburn of the Deaf Mute Institute is calling the j attention of the county examiners ti the fact that the law requires1 | them to report the name, age, pa ' rent or guardian and address of all deal, mute or blind children. Su- j perintendent Mashburn wants to get J . in touch with every such child in the , state, and for the good of such chil dren the examiners should not fail to report them even if the obligation ' to do so were not imposed by statute. —Gazette. 1 For Sale—2 houses.
