Prescott Arkansas MOONSHINE REIGN ENDS Siren Song of Copper Pot Loses Wooing Magic for Some Farmers of Baxter County Cotter, Ark., Jan. 27.—Another moonshine dynasty in the mountains, on the south side of the White river, has fallen, and the emperor has abdi cated. The Lion, a 100 gallon copper pot, no longer sings to its mate, the Pup, on Middle Creek. Dead are the Lion and the Pup. The emperor. Thru man MeFnll. with his prime minister and a few other loyal monitors <»f pis vanquished court is headed south, out of the mountains. Millard MeFall. his brother, is in jail at this place, having been bound over to the grand jury under a $5,000 bond charge*! with assault to kill. Hear MeFnll. son of Thurman, Hobson Morris, Lorenzo Woods. Ferd Gaines. Clarence "Wilbur. Will Collie and T’lbert Caststeel. all charged with moonshining. transport ing. etc., were taken before the com missioner at Harrison this week, and released on bonds of $750 each. According to officers who were in the raid, these men are through with moonshine business. The siren song of the copper pot lias lost its wooing magic. Next year’s cotton crop is up per most in their munis. They say they are glad that the end came. For three years they have heen living under a mental tension, worse than hell, that was nerve breaking. They are no longer constrained. From sullen secretive characters they changed oprer night into laughing, jovial citizens again. The bond of fear of the law under which they had lived in terror snapped in twain when they were taken before the commissioner. Prohibition officers say that the cleanup which has been in progress for the last two weeks in the moun tains is one of the most important ever made in the state. During the last years, two moon shine dynasties of menacing propor tions grew up in the mountains south of White river, in Raxter county. One was the McFall dynasty, which extended from Leatherwood Creek, west into the Leatherwood Mountains. The other was the Herbert Sease dynasty, which extended east from Leatherwood Creek to the White river. Subjects of the two dynasties were not on friendly terms. There was high jacking, fights and skir mishes. but the law never knew. With the conviction of Herbert Sease for killing Rob Davidson, last May, the Sease dynasty fell. The brutal assault on Mrs. William Cantrell, 76 years old, about three weeks ago, hastened the fall the the McFall dynasty, which is now com plete. Mrs. Cantrell is said to be im proving. but she stntes she will never recover. She is still bedfast. / Chattanooga Plow Repairs We have in stock a complete line of Chattanooga Chilled Plow Shares, Landsides, Wings and Standards.

NEVADA COUNTY HARDWARE CO. Phone No. 6 The assault on Mrs. Cantrell caused Thurman McFall's abdication and the hr cm king up of his kingdom. Not that ! it wouldn't have boon broken up any way, hut it hastened the day. Three weeks ago, when officers made a sortie into the mountains after Thurman McFall and brought out Ids brother, they saw things that were unbearable, and they marshaled a larger force. Three days inter Sheriff Jim Martin and deputies Sam Man kins. Harvey Collins and Lucian Chap man. accompanied l>v Prohibition Of ficers Hiram Butterfield, Theodore P.iirn- and Charley Cooley, made a ! raid into the enemy's kingdom and I began to clean up the menagerie. They got a big still on Middle Creek called the Lion by its owners, and all its whelps. They got the pup. its mate, its litter, and all tlie* rest of the copper animals. They got the owners of the menag erie. They were nil good, substantial farmers a few years ago. and they are going to tie again. IIEI'I IN DEFINES PARTY POI I CTES ON “MONEY V. MEN” Nothing hotter illustrates one of the differences between n certain typo of Republican and a fundamental Demo crat than a little colloquy which took place in the United States Senate be tween Senator Iletlin, the eloquent Alabama orator, and Senator Nichol son. a Republican Colorado magnate. Senator Heflin was discussing the Harris resolution to add Democratic members to the Rebt Refunding Com mission, when Senator Nicholson in terrupted : Mr. Nicholson: I ask the distin guished Senator from Alabama if the party which was in power before the Republican party came into power in 1920 had looked industriously after the interests of the people of the coun try. would they have loaned all this money to the European nations with out any security? The party which failed to do its duty to the people was the party which loaned the people’s money without any security. Mr. Heflin: As usual, the Republi can mind en^phasizes money rather than men. The Senator from Colo rado. and a very clever gentleman he is, seems to have been willing for us to send our boys over there without any guaranty of their return and to let them pour their blood out on the battle field and die without any assur ance that they were coming buck, but he would have us take security for our money right in the high tide of battle, when the liberty of the world was tit stake. He would have had us stop and figure over securing a dollar when we were spending our boys by the thou sands on the battle line. That is in keeping with the doctrine of the aver age Republican in office. He would have had ns use more boys and more bullets and fewer dollars. Senator Nicholson, despite the col loquy. admitted that Democratic mem bers should be added to the Debt Re funding Commission. _A EXAMINATION FOR PUBLIC COTTON CLASSERS Will Be Held, in Tyler, Texas, Be tween .March 15th and April 15th The Tyler Commercial College has ^ arranged with the chairman of the , Examination Hoard for Public Cotton j Classers for an examination to he . held in the Cotton Classing Depart-I ment of the Tyler Commercial Col- j logo between March 15th and April 15th.

How many farmers, however, know that one of the best times for ditch ing in the Southern States, if not the very best is during late winter months. At this season of the year farm labor at least has some choice in the selec tion of work. During the summer rush there can be none. Then too, soil conditions in the Southern States are apt to be exactly suited for ditch dig ging in January and February. Our heaviest rainfall in the South occurs at two periods, during January and February and during June and July. But. someone says, “You would not expect us to do our ditching in stand ing water with the soil saturated like a sponge?” Not entirely. We were thinking of the outlet ditches, the big gest part of the job and the most ex pensive. The small laterals can be dug at any time but if the farmer wants to save money and time he will dig his main outlet ditches with dyna mite when the ground is wet. The wetter the better. Dynamite works much better In wet soil than it does when the soil is dry because under these conditions dyna mite will give a complete ditch, re quiring very little if any hand clean ing three hundred to four hundred feet of ditch can be shot at one time, thus requiring only one blasting cap; all stumps cnn be removed cleanly; and the dynamite holes which must be spaced 1% to 2 feet apart can be put down much faster and cheaper. In ditching with dynamite where the soil is well saturated with water material can be moved at a cost of from twelve to eighteen cents per cubic yard. Under favorable condi tions n crew of three men cnn com plete a mile of main outlet ditching in four days by using dynamite properly spaced and loaded.
