Dear Picayune—The writer has been all over the county within the last few days soliciting stock takers for the compnay that has bought the Picayune. I do not think I ever saw brighter pros pects and richer rewards prom ised to the farmers for their toil in the way of crops than is in this county. Nevada will have hog and hominy and to spare, next year, old fields being farms !n Antibelum days have luxuriant crops. They, in some places, present the appearance of Red River farms. For instance of this, I will sight you. The first place where I stopped was at P Norman’s; one of the biggest heartod farmers in the county.' u v\ci: wuttii-uay wltii iua wuc but this did not interfere with a sumptous dinner of which we par took in wholesale quanities. P is a farmer by nature and profes sion. You will be convinced of this by looking at his fine grow ing crops. He will make if noth ing happens, at least, a bale of cotton per acre and 4b or 50 bush els of corn. From here we went to Eugene Mormon's who has a fine crop on old land. He uses the White Diamond fertilizer, an Arkansas product, of which the writer has sold about 45 tons. This will certainly prove a prof table investment to all who have fought it. Eugene expects to nake two bales per acre, and it ooks now like he will make it. Prom here we went to W' J. Thompson's, another good far ner and found him, with W. E. kgan, getting* some kind of; 'lock.-; in the Carouse bottom, 'hey both helped us in the ob ect of ontrio; so we drove on icross the Carouse to Charlie ■fook’s, in whose ear we sang our 0nV- Charlie is one of Emmet ownship’s best farmet s and cit Zens. 1 use to pick cotton with 'harlie; he picks it yet and he *a.V of thought 1 wras trying to [ick him w'hich 1 did finally, get ing him to take stock in the 'icayune. From thence we went to J. W. IcFaHand.s with whom wedom Jilerl for the night and to say we had a pleasant time is putting it mildly. Mr. McFarland has, in my opinion, one of the best farms i in this county. It lies between | the two Carouse creeks, near where they come together. The land is a deep, rich loamy soil, easily cultivated and yields boun teously. His crop is very tine. | Early next morning Mr. McFar land consented to make the rounds with me. He is jolly good company, we had a time. At Add Fincher’t we stopped and ate one of his fine melons; they were certainly lucious. Thence to J. K. Munn’s: found him sick and an enthusiastic heeder to our cry. Thence to Henry W. White’s, where we partook of a good dinner where we also met up with W. 0. West of Wiilisville, in Dotn oi wnose ears we sang our sirren tsong, and after getting a promise of help, we went to VV. M. Munn’s iour next county judge. There is not a more deservedly popular man in Nevada county. He is a successful farmer and mill man. We found him a willing contrib itor to our cause. From here we hit the road to Wiilisville, the home of the Warmacks; Here al so lives T. G. Boswell, the princely merchant, farmer and saw-mill man and is as busy as a cranberry merchant in Hv time. From here we went to ths Bos well Luny and Cole mill site where we met the proprietors and sold them, we think, a big saw-mill outfit. They have about seven million feet of the best timber in Arkansas. They will soon be turning out lumber like fire turns rats out of a barn. I will finish this next week. Respectfully, Jno. M. Milbprn. Stomach Troublei and Constipation No one can reasonably hope for good digestion when the bowels are consti pated, Mr. Chas. Baldwin, of Edwards ville, 111., says: “1 suffered from chronic constipation and stomach troubles for several years, but thanks to Chamber lain's Stomach and liver tablets, am al most cured.” Why not get a package of these tablets and get well and stay well?

Wilson, formerly of this place, but more recently a resident of Nashville fell dead at his home in that town last Wed nesday night. The remains were1 brought to this place for inter-1 ment in DeAnn cemetery, which takes place this morning at 10 o’clock. Mr. Wilson was a highly re spected young man, known and respected by a host of friends here. About two years ago he married Miss Neil Hatley, one of Prescott’s beauliful girls and the daughter of the late W. C. Hat ley. She survives. He was a brother o f Dale, James and Ghould Wilson of this place. The bereaved have the sympathy of a host of friends. Summer Diarrhoea in Children. During the hot weather of the Sum mer months the first unnatural loose ness of a ehsld’s bowels should have immediate attention, so as to check the disease before it becomes serious. All that is neccessary is a few doses of Chamberlain’s Colic, Cholera and Dia rrhoea Remedy followed by a dose of castor oil to cleanse the system. Rev. M. 0. Stockland, Pastor of Little Falls Minn., writes: “We have used Cham berlain’s Colic Cholera and Dirrhoea Remedy for several years and find it a very valuable remedy, especially for I summer disorders in children.” Sold by Baker Drue Store Wholesale and I Retail. BOOT-LEGGER CAUGHT BY CITY MARSHAL. Otis Cantley, City Marshal of 1 Prescott caught one J. F. Tawick, a white man, in Prescott yester day morning and shipped him back to Bierne, where he was wanted on a charger of bootleg jging whiskey. It seems that this would-be whisky peddler went to Beirne; the other day and sold enough whisky to put the drinking part of the community on a whiz, and then came on to Prescott. He had just bought a ticket to Tex arkana when he was picked up. When the Clark county author-1 i ities are through with him he | will be turned over to the U. S. authorities under the jurisdiction | of Judge Jacob Trieber. KILLING AT HOPE Sam Thomas Shot and Killed by Dr. G. H. Martindale Last Saturday.

It is stated that Thomas had made threats against Dr. Mar tindale, and after the killing Dr. Martindale was given a prelimi nary hearing and was discharged. About two years ago Sam Thomas killed a man by the name of John Coffee, in the road near DeAnn. He was tried for this in the Hempstead circuit court and acquitted.

(In the big building) IMPROVED SIDEWALKS ORDINANCE PASSED BY THE CITY COUNCIL AT ITS LAST MEETINC Providing for Concrete Sidewalks in the Residence Part of the City. SAM Q. SEVIER Short In His Accounts. Bondsmen Make Shortage Good. In rather a sensational report coming from Camden it is stated that Sheriff Sam Q. Sevier of Ouachita county, has been found short in his accounts with the state in the sum of $3,999.99. When the shortage was dis covered, Mr. Sevier’s bondsmen at once made good the amount and Mr. Sevier made them safe by a lien on his property. We believe that Sam Sevier is a good man, and that his shortage will be found some time not to be attributed to his fault. Mr. Sevier is at present in poor health, and it was reported that he attempted to commit sui cide when the shortage was dis covered. -- NEGRO SHOT BY CONSTABLE Sam B£ll, colored was shot and seriously wounded by Constable Clyde Marsh last Monday. The negro had been indicted on a charge of stealing an overcoat, and the warrant placed in the hands of the constable to serve. When the constable weak to the house where the negro was, he found him on the porch. Im-! mediately on discovering the officer the negro started to go in to the house when he was told , not to attempt to go in or he would be shot. He began to move sidewise to the door and then making a dash for the door the constable fired the ball tak ing effect in his hip. The wound while serious, is not thought to ‘ be necessarily fatal. Dr. Rice attended the wounded man. Woodman Barbecue at Hope.

He knows that the bright sunshine may last but a day and he prepares for the showers which are1 so liable to follow. So it should be with every household. Dysentery, diarrhoea and cholera morbus may attack some | member of the home without warning. Chamberlain's Colic Cholera and dia rrhoea Remedy, which is the best known medicine for these diseases, should be kept at hand, as immediate treatment is neccessary and delay may prove fa tal.

At the meeting of the counci last Thursday evening, the ordi nance providing for sidewalks, to be put down of concrete by the property owners was read the third time and passed. It provides for improved side walks on West Main street from Wm. Gee’s residence to West Front street and from Greeson’s residence on East Main to East Front street; on West Walnut street from Hitchcock’s residence to West Front street; and from the Baptist church to East Front street on East Walnut; on Elm street from West Third street to J. S. Regan’s residence. West Third street from the Ozan Mill to Walnut street; West Second street from Elm to Hunter Scott’s residence; East Second street from Mrs. Christopher’s resi dence to Walnut street; East Third street about three blocks; East Front street from Elm to Munson’s residence; West Front street from Mat Denman’s resi dence to Mack Williamson’s res idence. The sidewalks are to be four feet wide, and are to be put down in six months. Upon failure of the property owner to build and pay for the sidewalks the charge for same becomes a lien ok the property. If this work is properly done and there is no defective work or graft, and if the price is reas onable, it will be a good invest ment. There is no denying the fact that Prescott is badly in need of sidewalks, and it seems, judging the future by the past, that the only way we will ever have them is for the property owners to make them and pay for them. Our taxes have been to the limit, and up-to-date the town seems to have had none ox rh< benefit of it. NEXT STATE MEETING Of Farmer’s Union t>o be heid at* Texarkana Before the State meeting ef the Farmer’s Union adjourned at Little Rock they decided to hold their next state meeting at Tex arkana. Practically the same officers were retained. Our friend, Ben L. Griffin ( the “Red Rooster”) is still Secretary and Treasurer and his headquarters, we presume, will remain at Con way.
