Butler, (Mo) Republican. -DAY SESSION AMENDMENT IS UPHELD BY COURT ghest State Tribunal Says Amendment Was Legally Advertised and Regularly Submitted. Amendment No. 13 voted upon the last general election as a ■t of the State Constitution, 1 limiting the regular session the General Assembly to 60 ys, was upheld in a decision of e* Arkansas Supreme Court, mled down this morning and irming the findings of the ru sk i County Chancery Court. The validity of the amendment d been attacked by House mem rs, who wanted to have the ?asures tested out before being plied, in order to avoid any lestion of legality that might ■ise afterwards regarding mea ires passed during the legislat ive term. Among the charges was the contention that the pro posed rmendment had not been properly advercised; also that it had been irregularly submitted. All these contentions are knocked out by the Supreme Court and legality of the amendment up held. As a sequel to the court’s find ing. the two blanches of the Gen eral Assembly will meet in joint session this afternoon and dec lare the amendment a part of the constitution. The decree of the court is un usually interesting since already about half the present session has passed, with much vital leg islation yet to come.

WALLER SENATE PASSES LIQUOR MEASURE Bill Regulating Interstate Shipment of Intoxicants Adopted by a Viva Voce Vote Washington, Feb. 10—The Sen ate tonight, by a viva voce vote, passed the Webb liquor bill al ready passed by the house, as a substitute for the Kenyon Shep pard bill. The Webb bill would prohibit shipments of intoxicating liquors from one state to another when intended to be received or sold in violation of law of the state to which the shipment is made. Friends of the legislation now will seek to have the house con cur in the Senate bill, which diff ers from the bill passed by the house only in number. Should that be done, the bills would not be considered in conference, but the measure passed by the Sen ate will go to the president for signature. The substitution of the Webb bill for the Kenyon-Sheppard bill came at the close of prolonged debate and was by viva voce vote, no roll call being demand ed. Here is a message of hope and good cheer from Mrs. (J. J. Martin, Boone Mill, Ya., who is the mother of eigh teen children. Mrs. Martin was cured of stomach trouble and constipation by Chamberlain’s Tablets after five years of sulFering, and now recommedds these tablets to the public. Sold by All Dealers. THE "WHISKEY BILL” Rushed Through the House Monday Morning By Vote of 73 to 21. The House of Representatives presented an interesting scene Monday, when the Senate bill af fecting the liquor interests of the State came up for final passage. The galleries were filled and al most the available standing room on the floor was “occupied by in terested men and several women. The bill, “wise heads” say, means Statewide ft prohibition after Dec. 31 1913, when it is to become operative. It was intro duced in the Senate by 19 Senat ors and shot through that body to the House where it finally pass sed, amid cheering, Monday by a vote of 73 to 21. The measure is now up to the; governor for his approval. He is in Washington and is not ex pected back until after Wednes day. It is not thought that acting Governor Oldham will take up the bill, unless Governor Robin son does not return before the five-day limit allowed the execut ive for passing on a bill. The measure forces prospect ive saloonists to obtain the ap proval of a majority of the “white adults” in a given com munity, to a saloon, and bars negroes from signing. The constitutionality of the measure will probably be tested. There is no better medicine made for S colds than Chamberlain’s Cough Rem edy.

HELP EACH OTHER SOCIETY This Society met with Mrs, C. B. Andrews Thursday night and after business, they went to Mrs. .J. M. Pittman’s as a surprise to Miss Mosher. They rendered a program there and were delight ed by talks from Miss Dees and Miss Mosher. They went as a surprise but the surprise was for them when they were served with hot choc late and sandwiches. After being thus refreshed we departed for home with a new determination to make more vi sits to Mrs. Pittman's. NERVOUS 6IRLS Most persons who live in large cities work too hard and play too hard. The result an exhausted nervous system, is pitiful en nigh in middle age, but it is tragic in the young. Nature never inten ded a young girl to know she has any nerves. And yet we con stantly hearing that some young girl has “broken down.” Over study gets the blame much often er than too much amusement, but in most cases there are several causes at work: necessary school work, unnecessary and siliy dis sipation, and an inherited ner vous system that is feeble. A mother who has herself be come a nervous bankrupt cannot bequeath strong nerves to her daughters. She must learn that only the wisest management will bring them to healthy wo manhood at all. The strain of getting a mod ern education is all that most young girls can stand. School duties ought to occupy almost all the time that is left from absolut ely necessary rest, sleep, and re laxation in the open air. If the girl adds parties and dances with their late hours and late suppers, she depletes her reserve force rapidly, and some'degree of ner vous breakdown is sure to follow. She is fortunate whose mother is old-fashioned enough to think it wrong for schoolgirls to t a k e part in that sort of dissipation. Economic conditions oblige many young girls to earn their living, and they too, must lear.i that the candle cannot be burn ed at both ends. The very young and very strong may be able to stand all day behind a counter and then spend half the night in dancing, but the women who rise to be heads of departments are not found among the dancers. No girl need be in doubt whether she is overtaxing her strength. Nature’s danger-sig nals are plain, and if we goad her on in spite of them, she takes her revenge sooner or later. If you are a schoolgirl, postpone your playtime for a year or two. You will enjoy it the more when it comes, and you will be prettier and fresher for your self control.
