Los Angeles, Cal., April <> Mrs. j Beulah Hawkins has completed: the sixty-first day of a sleep that ' has puzzled physicians who have investigated her case. She shows I no sign of avvakenin.tr, and but little hope for her recovery is en-1 tertained. A gradual loss of weight which first followed her removal to the hospital hits been retrained except for three pounds. It is generally believed that Mrs. Hawkins is at! times conscious of what is going! on about her and that frequent flutterings of her eve-lida indi cate a desire to shake off the trance which has been medically described as cataleptic insanity.

WORKMEN FOR A LABOR PRESIDENT Tivt Hundred Thousand I oil ers Will Vote tor one of Their hind. “ Five hundred thousand work ers will enter the presidential campaign as a solid unit, and try to elect a working class candi date,” declared William 1). Hay wood. secretary-treasurer of the Western Federation of Miners yesterday. His announcement was caused by a dispatch from the executive board of his organi sation. informing him that plans for the consolidation of 500,000 members of labor unions have been adopted by half a dozen of the largest organizations in the country. Haywood added: ll a spur to the workers was wanted. Sec reran Taft furnished it in his recent speech, asking for a larger army for use in case of international trouble. Mr. Taft and other politicians will learn that labor to meet violence, the ballot box is the weapon la bor will use. Already the amal gamation of the l nited Mine Workers, the Western Federa tion of Miners, I’nited brewer Workers ot America. Carriage Workers, Shoemakers, linkers and Confectioners and other organizations, numbering more than half a miliion members, is certain before the election. We will form a federation of labor that will not send lobbyists to Congress to beg tor what they never get, but elect men to otlice who have what we are entitled to.” BIRMINGHAM U C. V REUNION.

Probably the most important decision handed down yesterday by the Arkansas Supreme Court was one in the case of Johnson county against Jamison, in which an etfort was made to collect costs from the county in a mis demeanor case iii which the con vieit in the case had been worked i out on the roads by the county. The Supreme Court held that no costs could be collected from the county on the ground that no appropriation was made by the levying- court to pay the costs in the case, and also held, at the same time, that “beforea county court is authorized to work con victs upon the road there must ; be an appropriation by the levy ing court," which clause is inter preted to mean that no county court can legally work its con vict on the roads unless the court makes an appropriation to cover such costs as may arise. • ARTESIAN. The party at Ai Wakes was ! largely attended. Miss Anna Summers and Fannie Wake are 'hi champion dominoe players of i this vicinity. Hi ye Overton, of near ('ale, | was in our. midst Sunday to see I Ids host sweetheart. Miss M. S. William Ross, of Howard coun ty, spent a few days visiting his father and mother. William is one of Howard’s best farmers. Tom Shackleford and Miss An na Collins attended the musical at Mr. Morris’s Saturday night. Rumors are that the wedding is near, when two hearts shall beat as one. John MeSweeny was the guest f Joe Ross and family. Satur day night.

Would it not bo better to lift up your fallen neighbor than to fall over him? “Forgive and forget” would be a good rule to adopt just now — for two years any way. The Picayune would like to see Bryan and Johnson the standard bearers of dniocracy next time. One does not need credit to en able him to borrow trouble. A small moustache is all that some young men are willing to grow. Give and take; and take and give. It is love that makes the world go round and man come across. Many a wide-awake young man has missed it by not letting his mouth sleep more. It has just about gotten so that a rabbit is afraid to lay an Easter egg without telling the Tax As sessor. Leapyear is one-third prone and | a lot of unmarried men haven’t got so much as an invitation to buy a ticket to a song recital. The determination of Congress not to do anything until after the next Presidential election ought to have the indorsement of all those who haven’t done anything since the last one. Some men think they are re sponding to “thecall of the wild” every time their wives telephone to them. AS OTHERS SEE US. Under the caption, “The Dig nity of Office”, the Atchison, Kan., Clobe says: The arrest of Senator Jeff Davis recently for carrying con cealed weapons, and participating in a street brawl, was in keeping with the conduct of that official since the people of Arkansas honored him with the highest office at their disposal. Jeff Davis is about the rawest speci men of the political demagogue PROGRAM TODAY “I Have Won a Pig." “The Vestal." “The Witch’s Kiss." “A Pretty Typist." admissionI fl n ONLY |UC Entire Change of Pictures Daily. before the public today. He is the type of man one is apt to connect with thoughts of ward politicians, and to consider im possible in the United States sen ate. But he is in the senate just the same. He has advanced himself politically and financially, on the ground that he is a great friend of the common people. It is not recorded that he has ever done a single thing to benefit the people, but he told them he would, and that seems to count for the same in Arkansas, as it does in several other states. In cidentally, he seems to have for gotten that a majority of the people have a high regard for the common decencies and civilities of life, and believe that a certain dignity may and should attach to the highest officers of the nation, and that without endangering Liberty, or aping the antics of royalty. His boast to the “Hill Billies” and “Red Necks” of his home state, during his campaign for the senate, was that he would take off his boots and walk up the aisles of the senate chamber, and in this informal manner tell the vice president what was needed. He didn’t quite do that, but he has succeeded in making an ass of himself in several other particulars. If his gun play gets him in jail, as it would an hum bler citizen, it would be no seri ous loss to the senate or the state of Arkansas. Long Silk Gloves Black, White, Tan and Brown.
