EARLY FROST WAS COSTLY TO SOUTH “If the frosts of last week had bem delayed three weeks longer, the South would have made 1,000,000 bales of cotton more than it will make now.” This statement was made in Little Rock last week by Amasa Bernard, special meteorological observer of the United States Weather Bureau at Dardanelie, while he was in Little Rock look ing after a case in the Supreme Court Mr. Bernard has the full confi dence of the Weather Bureau men throughout the country and is credited by them with having the cotton crop of the South on the tips of his fingers. He said that the cotton crop was a great deal like a baseoall game—no one can tell how it is going to turn out until it is all over—but the game he said, had gone fai enough for it to be known that the top crop had been destroyed. “A quietus has been put on that by Jack Frost, and nothing more will be heard of it,” he said. Besides being the weather man at Dardanelie. Mr. Bernard is superintendant of the Darda nelle a d Russellville railroad, and he was in Little Rock on business connected with that company’s appeal of a case to the Supreme Court. The case is that in which Mrs. W. J. Brig ham obtained a judgement for $10,000 against the company on account of the death of her husband, who was a fireman on that road and was killed while in the discharge of his duties. She sued for $40,000 and obtained a judgment for$10,000, whereupon the company carried the case to ti»e highest court of the state. —----.. — — GEO. S^JWNE DEAD Geo. S.

THE WHITE RIBBON WHAT IT MEANS In 1877 at the National Con vention in Chicago there was controversy as to what should be our badge. 8 /me suggested royal purple, some red, white and blue, but a young lady of Brooklyn, New York, made such an inspiring speech on the su perior symbolic meaning of the white ribbon, that it was at once adopted. One day in an audience that one of our speakers was address ing where questions were com ing thick and fast, some one asked, “What ought the white ribbon to mean to the woman who wears it?” Previously she had thought of it only as a badge of membership, a token that ‘we belong', but what it ought to mean now conveyed a differ ent idea. So the answer flashed to her mind in these words: “It should mean purity, consecra tion, helpfulness and loyalty,” and she gave the answer, and ever after that the white ribbon held a deeper meaning for her. By some it is called, “organ ized mother-love,” and truly, for the protection of the home is why we are banded together. Tome, the white ribbon means the overthrow of the liquor traffic, the out-lawing of the cigarette (the cigar smoker is usually the daddy of the cigar ette smoker) a white life for two, making clean, happy homes for father, mother and children, and in fact a clean nation. It is our duty and should be our pleasure to wear our white ribbon always and every where. It is a silent protest of every evil thing. We can not all at tend all the meetings all the time, but we can all wear our white ribbon. Said a dear woman when dying: “Be sure you put on my white ribbon as you dress me for the last time,so I can testify once more.” And so we affectionately ex cla m: “0, white ribl»on, my white ribbon! Can 1 ever tell Why I love you as I wear you, What your magic spell? As above my heart I place you, Gleaming bit of white, You are embodied conscience, Leading into light. So, at God’s command, I’m ready; Ready, day and night, Wearing, as my badge of office, Just my ribbon white.” . ■■ — STEVE CARRIGAN JR., TO WED Mr. and Mrs. John Adam Pence have issued invitations to the marriage of their daughter, Mary Delia, to Mr. Steve Carrigan Jr., on Wednesday, November 9th, 1910, at 5 o’clock, at the Methodist Church, Conway, Ark ansas.
