Not only are our farmers raising hogs, but they are giving more atten tion to improving the quality of herds. Conditions in this State are ideal for the production of cheap pork, and Arkansas should rank among the leading swine States. We note that the Na tional Feeders and Breeders’ Show at Fort Worth, Texas, March 13 to 18, is offering big premiums to hog raisers, and Arkansas ought to get in the contest and capture some of that money. A single hog may win $275, if a Duroc-Jersey; $250, if a Berkshire; $195, if a Poland China, and $175 if a Tamworth. We shouldlbe proud to record the fact, later on, that Arkansas farmer had brought some of this money home. Let seme of the farmers of Nevada County get busy and capture some of these prizes. , What? Corruption in Uncle Joe Cannon’s bailiwick, too? It is almost unbelievable, of course, but according to charges made before the grand jury, the county of the distinguished, to-be ex tinguished speaker of the house has long been debauched by vote buying. And we had always thought the big majorities for Uncle Joe were a tribute to his charming personality! Editor William J. Bryan’s interesting journal. The com moner, has just entered upon its eleventh year, with every indica tion of a long life before it in the expounding of genuine Dem ocratic doctrine. The “interests” don’t like The Com moner or its editor, but there are a lot of common people who do. and the paper,s circulation is large and constantly increasing. A most significant statement was made by that eminent mas ter of corporation law, Samuel C. Untermyer, in his address to the DURING 1911 Make Our Store Your Trading PL AST year we went to consider able trouble and expense to fix up our building, that we might be in a better position to take care of the hardware, furniture and implemenet wants of this community. We did this not only for the additional money that we might make but also for our pride in giving the people ofj'.this county the best store of its kind in the state. We have increased our stock, added new lines, hired more help, and purpose to give our patrons the kind of service they are entittled to. We hope to merit your business by the quality of our merchandise, right prices and fair and liberal treatment. Prescott Hardware Co. In the Big Building National Civic Federation last week. Mr. Untermyer favors federal regulation of the trusts, deeming |it unfeasable and un desirable to attempt to prohibit such combinations in restraint of trade. But he seemed to point very briefly to oneetTacious rem edy when he said: “Possibly the fact that Eng land is a free-trade country has had much to do with its freedom from all forms of trusts aud com binations. The incentive to com bine the industries of a country is not so great when the combined company must in any event com pete with other countries.” England has no 'trust problem and is the only great nation that has not for the simple reason that it is the only free trade na tion. Mr. Untermyer’s remarks are conclusive affirmation of the great, unescapable fact that the tariff is the mother of the trusts. If the people of the United States really desire relief from the ex actions of oppressive monoplies they can secure it by abolishing the tariff subsidy which has built them up.

Mr. Floyd Clark still makes his peace calling and election sure at Mr. John Adams. Hope he will make it alright, as we have encouraged him so much, and still we think his heart is troubled a little. But if kind words and sympathy can do any good we think he will come out on the sunny side. Some one asked Bernard Fair childs at the society the other night if he knew that a cat could mew, He said that his mother said they could. Floyd must have been very happy last Sunday as he was sitting by his best girl’s side. Madam Rumor has it that there will be a wedding very soon at the old Mount.

Somejok€s are like trouble: The people who have them bore others by telling them. Thanks to Lee Caruthers for a substantial call one day last week. Free Dyspepsia Sample Sufferers from indigestion are wak ing up to the fact that peppermint lozenges, charcoal and “dyspepsia cures” are only makeshifts in the cure of so troublesome a complaint as chronic indigestion. What is required is something that will not only relieve but which will tone and train the digestive apparatus to again do its work normally, and this these simple remedies cannot do. There is something more to the cure or Indigestion than sweetening the breath, and yet a remedy that only con tains digestive Ingredients will not cure permanently, as the basis of indigestion is poor bowel circulation, and that re quires a scientific laxative. We know of no remedy that combines these re quirements better than Dr. Caldwells Syrup Pepsin, which has been sold for a quarter of a century. Dr. Caldwell’s Syrup Pepsin la a laxa tive tonic, a scientific blending of nat ural ingredients for the cure of con stipation, indigestion. liver trouble, sour stomach, sick headache and similar com plaints.

Staunton, Va., was a long-time sufferer. as was O. Tuck. Blackburn Mo and they both found their cure with this remedy.

They first accepted Dr. Caldwell’s offer of a free sample bot tle, which he willingly sends to anyone who forwards name and address. Later, tiavlng convinced themselves through the •ree sample, they bought Svrup Pepsin of their druggist at fifty cents and one dollar a bottle. Dr. Caldwell personally wilt be pleased to jive you any medical advice you may desire for yourself or family pertaining to the stomach, liver or bowels absolutely free of charge.
