Dashng madly across the Arkadel pliia end of the Iron Mountain railway bridge, Bill Ashley litterally lifted H. J. P. Horne and lowered hun to safety on one of the sills that projects cross just above the piling, and himself gained 1 he other side of the sill just as fast mail Train No. 7 swept along on schedule time near one o’clock this af ternoon. Rev. Horne, who is about 80 years of age, had been called to Dalark to marry a couple and finding the river tip so that vehicles could not cross the fiats of the Dalevills side, he started to walk across the railroad bridge in order to catch the M. I) & G. train, that leaves Paleville daily at 1:30 p. m. Train No. 7. which is about the fastest on the Missouri Pacific system, is due shortly after J p. m.. and it was reported on time this afternoon. After Mr. Horne got three fourths of the way across, No. 7 appeared not far away, perhaps running at a speed of sixty miles per hour. Bill Ashley observed the train’s approach and also saw Mr. Horne. Re alizing that the old gentleman was not aware of his danger and that he could not hear well or see far Bill gained the bridge after a short sprint and literally dashed down the dangerous path, reach ing the old man in the niche of time. Mr. Horne was startled by the warning and was momentarily bewildered, and with no time to spare young Ashley ts said to have almost lifted the aged man and set him down on the project ing sill that crosses a few feet under the rails. Warning Mr. Horne to duck his head and hold tight. Ashley then leaped across the track and gained the other end of the sill, having no sooner reached safety of the other perch when No. 7 shot past. The train is reported t<» have not slackened its speed, nor whistled. After regaining his compos ure Mr. Horne proceeded to Daleville Ln order to catch his train and meet his engagement and marry the couple that waited. Hill Ashley says lie was one scared human after it was all over. It would have, been easy to have made a miss stop while running the trestle, and In that case probably both of tin* men would have lost their lives.

Woolsey, Horlinculturist of the Agricultural Ex tension Division, University of Arkan sas. Deep plowing thorough harrowing and pulverizing of the soil and in most cases compacting should lie the rule of every grower. Small seed will germin ate poorly in loose, cloddy soil and growth after germination will lie sow and weak. A good, loose friable soil furnishes the best medium for the roots to develop properly . “The snial garden will generally be spaded and raked by hand. In this case, it is necessary to spade deeply and to rake the land the same day as spaded. This allows for bettor break ing of the clods and the conservation of moisture. “The larger garden is generally plow ed. The land should lie plowed eight or 10 inches deep and the surface har rowed tin* same day. It is a good prac tice to harrow the surface again just before planting and then run a plank drag over it to produce a smooth seed bed.” MISS CHAMBERS PROBATE JUDGE MTTLE ROCK WOMAN IS AP POINTED TO NEW PULASKI COUNTY OFFICE.
