B. A. Hancock for Sheriff.
The News this week carries the
announce of B. A. Hancock for the
nomination for Sheriff and Collec
tor of Union county, subject to the
action of the coming Democratic
primary.
Mr. Hancock has yielded to the
urgent solicitations of his many
friends over the county to enter
this race. He is too well known
among the people of this county to
need an introduction at our hands.
He made the race for sheriff two
years ago and was defeated by only
about fifty yotes.
He was born and reared in this
county at Marysville and, except
for three years at Atlanta, has
spent his whole life in this county.
He was reared on the farm and,
after growing to manhood, fitted
himself for business. He was in
business in El Dorado for a number
of years and has enjoyed a suc
cessful business career. He
served as marshal of the city of El
Dorado for about four years and
was active and faithful in the dis
charge of the duties of this office.
He has been in the employ of the
El Dorado Oil Mills and Fertilizer
Co. for the past two seasons. He
has performed well all these duties
and, in every way. has won and
merited the highest respect of all
with whom 'he has associated, be
cause of his honestly and earnestly
discharging every duty required of
him.
Mr. Hancock is well qualified to
fill the office of sheriff in every
particular and, if nominated and
elected, will make the county an
able and faithful official. His
former experience, his business
ability and his untiring zeal and
energy are a sure guarantee of du
ties well performed, if he is elected
your sheriff. He will appreciate
your support and assures you that
you will never regret your choice,
if elected to this office. Don’t for
get his claims when you cast your
vote on May 28.

ion pieces of letter heads for use

well known army Y. M. C. A letter
head which has become so familiar
in nearly every home in the United
States. It is furnished free to the

Camp Pike Notes.
It may sound like a joke to the
folks back home when they hear
that the boys at Camp Pike are “In
the trenches.” but there is nothing
funny about it to the soldiers. The
trenches are a very real part of the
training here. There are miles of
them and they represent some of
the most strenuous work done in
Arkansas this season. Piles of
rock along the tops of some sec
tions show that they are built re
gardless of the soil conditions. In
the soft, sandy spots the walls had
to be shored up with timbers, while
in others the rocky shale makes an
ideal trench wall. Every modern
idea in trench warfare is illustrated
at some portion of the work, and
they represent a first, second and
third line of defense, and stretch
away from the lower land up over
the hills through the timber. The
so'diers are taught how to carry
stretchers and loads through the
trenches and around the corners,
how to get in and out of them and
other details of trench life.
Details of the various branches
of the service are sent to the
trenches to live in them under act
ual fighting conditions save that
there are no bursting shells over
head. They carry rations with
them sometimes sufficient for sev
eral days and sleep and eat in the
trenches. It isn’t so bad if the
weather be favorable, but several
times detachments have been
caught in the rain and then the
clay and mud makes the trench
life very realistic.
The innovation in the army work
of the Y. M. C. A. are buildings for
the officers, and four of these
buildings are now open or under
course of construction at Camp
Pike. Officers are seldom to be
found in main buildings, because
their presence would frequently be
a source of embarrassment to the
men, who are glad to escape for an
hour or two from the strict discip
lin of military life. The buildings
for the officers are much smaller
than those for the men, and will be
equipped as reading and recreation
rooms and a place for lectures and
eniertaiaoienta.
While each officer has a private
room in the officers quarters, they I
are going to be decidedly uncom
foi table in hot weather and the
private in the big, open well venti
lated barracks is going to have all
the best of it so far as coolness
goes. Being an officer is not all
glory and fun. For, while a pri
vate has only to salute his superior
officer, the commissioned man has
to salute every private he meets
and his brother and superior offic
ers as well. And the officers claim
they can’t save as much money as
do some of the non-commissioned.
Still there are always a. lot of fel
lows trying to get commissions,
while no one seems to care very
much about being a private.

Lillie Pearl Pryor Dead.
The remains of Miss Lillie Pearl,

months and 6 days of age and

Swindle Parents of Soldiers.
Parents of soldiers in camps are
warned by the War Department of
a swindle which has been success
fully operated in various camps.
A telegram is sent informing that
the soldier has a furlough, and re
questing funds by wire to come
home, waiving examination. The
rest is a mere matter of detail.
Parents and friends should be
warned of this game and. of the
similar one where the telegraphic
request is to mail money to the
soldier care general delivery.

Eat More Cottage Cheese.
Hundreds of Arkansas farmers
are either wasting their skim milk
or are feeding it to animals. The
specialialists of the Extension Di
vision are conducting a campaign,
and urging our people to eat more
cottage cheese. They say one
pound of cottage cheese supplies
more protein than one pound of
beef, pork, lamb, veal or fowl.
Consequently, those who eat cot
tage cheese need less meat. Why
not utilize the skim milk and sell
the meat? This will help great’y
to supply our soldiers with food
that can be transported.
American Engineers In France.
The official review of the first
year of war issued by the Commit
tee on Public Information-contained
the following description of work of
American engineers in France:
American engineers have gone
into French forests and done the
work of the pioneers of our own
Northwest. They have frequently
been under fire. One of their first
tasks was the reconstruction and
extension of a railroad 600 miles
long to carry our Droducts from
ports of disembarkation to general
bases of operation.
The First Engineer troops. 1,100
strong, arrived in France about
three months after war was de
clared. Since then the number
has been greatly augmented.
These troops have been constantly
engaged in general engineering
work, including the construction of
railways, docks, wharves, canton
ments and hospitals.
An American army locomotive
was built in this country in 2J days
and shipped to the expeditionary
forces. Many other locomotives,
cars, logging trains, trucks, dis
sembled buildings, and other equip
ment have been shipped to aug
ment the output and facilitate tho
construction operations, of Ameri
can forces abroad.

Judge and Doctor.
“I find this man guilty of larceny
and sentence him—’’ "Kleptomania,
your honor. A case for a doctor, not
a judge.” “Very good. I in a doctor
of laws and I'll prescribe about two
years.”
Good for the Whole Family
“Cr»Mjr” Ckuibcrkia “A good cough remedy is one that can be
- depended upon to cure coughs. Not one
that cures some particular cough, but coughs in general. «
It must be a cough remedy that can be relied upon for all the
different coughs that are so prevalent While the causes of all
coughs are primarily the same, yet the condition of the patient
is what makes the difference in the nature of the cough itself.
Coughs of healthy persons are easier to cure than the coughs of
invalids. The powerful convulsive cough of a large man is
harder to cure than the cough of a baby. If you get a remedy
that will cure a large man's cough and yet not be too powerful
for the baby, you have a good cough remedy.
Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy
is just this kind of remedy. It i9 good for any member of the
family. It relieves coughs of all kinds. It is the product of much
thought and study to produce an ideal cough remedy. It is com
posed of things which cure easily a$d soothingly without harm
ing the most delicate tissues of the throat. It acts aa easily and
safely on the young as on the old, and is the ideal remedy for
coughs, colds, croup, influenza, whooping cough and bronchitis.”
