FOR GOVERNOR Dr. A. R, Bishop Asked to Make the Race, However, He Will Sot Enter the Campaign. r _ Texarkana, Ark., Aug. 14.—Dr. A. B. Bishop, Ashdown, Ark. Dear Sir: Why don't you run for Governor? It seems that the woods are full of can didates and your chances for success will be as fair as any of them. Your abilities are equal, Ef not superior, to any of them, reckoning the qualiiica tions that are essential for an intelle ctual, lean and humane administration. You understand more about human nature, the weaknesses of frail human ity, the wants and needs of the people, and would be more likely to give them simple justice, instead of stearn law', than any of your competitors. The people want a governor who would administer justice tempered with mercy, whose body, sciul and mind’s concern is to do the right and letp olitical consequences take care of themselves, ignoring the game ct politics which so many of .-our gover nors play. As to yr«v reputation and standing throughout the state, the work you Shi, or the stand yoi took in the last legislature for the e o so of unifoi m school books is enough to make any man ir. the guhana'.Ji'iai chair, be sides your position o:. t'.-t temperance question. These tilings '.re known and a.j.jii eciated. If you want to see me boil over just m-niicn school books, no hook hero with a few exceptions, is used the sec old year. It means change in the progress of science, says the power tlvii he; I presume the science of ma thematics is changing, as they charge their arithmetics every other year. But J 1.aren’t the space to .ixrress my in dignation on this subi'et. 1-lease let me near from you on this silt irct, and acepr my "armest per sonal regards. Your friend, I)r. Bishop savs lie appreciates the compliment, but it is far beyond his expectation or desire to enter the race for governor. -a Wilton Local News.

San Antonio, Tex., Aug. 14.—Follow ing startling evidence laid before Gen eral Frederick Funston, commanding the Southern department, by a com mittee headed by Congressman John Garner, General Funston announced that the committee had thoroughly es tablished its contention that the dis order in the Rio Grande valley had I been fostered by constituted Mexican authorities. 1 Affidavits were submitted to the War Department to the eeffet that a date had been set by the Mexicans for the sacking of Brownsville. Talks of Prompt Action. General Funston admitted that up to the time of the conference he did not believe the outlawry in the valLe.y was receiving its hacking from the Mexican Mae. But upon presentation ©r'tke evidence he said he was convin ced the committee possessed infor mation which warranted prompt ac tion. Submitting further proof of the re port that General Nafarrete, the Car ranza commander at Matamoros, had boasted that when the time came he “would plant the Mexican flag on top of the Brownsville postoffice,” affida vits were shown General Funston. Awaits Word From Washington. While given authority to order such additional troops as he deemed neces sary General Funston decided to com municate with Washington, and orders were issued at once to dispatch artfl- j lery to the Rio Grande valley. \yith the evidence and the United Stat es army is preparing to forestall well organized plans of constituted Mexi can authorities. The new troops in the field will be the Twenty-sixth Regiment of infan try from Texas City, Colonel R. L. Bullard, commanding: Batteries B. and E of the Fifth Artillery from Fort Sill, and one earoplane from Fort Sill. Battery B, both the artillery detach ments, are equipped with heavy field pieces, Battery B having four 7-inch howitzers and Battery E regular field pieces of the same dimension. The-'; ordinary field piece of the American J army is approximately three inches ; in diameter.. ' IVot a Large Force. With the exception of the infantry this will be the same force , less one artillery battery, that was at Browns ville three months ago, when the town was threatened by the battle between Villistasa nd Carranzistas at Matamo ros. I.ate r ports from Brownsville say ih.it ihe Carranza forces along the border at. Matamoras have 2 batterioo eight pieces of artillery of the French 75-miliimeter model, which corres ponds roughly to the American three inch piece. There are about 800 Mexican soldiers in the garrison be tween Camargo and Matamoros, a distance of 100 miles. It is said that should Obregon decide to co-operate with Nafarrette the artillery strength could be trebled within 24 hours and the number of men increased to 4,000 >r 5,000.

ARKANSAS’ LARG EST HARVEST General Affairs of State are Growing Better Every Day, Both Political and Agricultural Lines. v Little Rock, Aug. 17.—(Special.)— Fortunately for Arkansas, its politics is only a by product, it is always on tap, but does not overflow except e.-ery two years. It is now approach ing flood-tide, and will reach its height In March. But while all this is engaging the attention of those who make a busi ness or a diversion of p.)' ties, just like those who get excited ( ver base ball or horse races, the majority of the people are actively and genuinely in terested in the material prosperity of [the state. I And no time has the pros pect been so encouraging. Confidence, which has been for a long time at a low ebb, is being restored; bank bal ances are again beginning to become active; and business in many lines is opening up. The prospect ot one ot the larges, crop yields the state has ever known is one of the Incentives for this con dition. Reduced avreage and unfa vorable July weather considerably re duced the cotton crop, but still there will be a princely revenue from the King who refuses to be deposed. Diversification and profitable farm ing campaigns have been very potent factors in bringing about a New Ag riculture that has been the subject of Agricultural Commissioners, Agricul tural Colleges, and federal farm dem onstrators for several years. No lon ger is book-farming despised. It is accepted as the most inportant ad junct of the successful fanner, since it represents the accumulated experi ence of those who have made an ex pert study c(f soil productivity. For years the seed had been sown and now that which had fallen in fer tile soil is producing an hundred fold in improved methods actual yield, and general outlook of the farmer. The results are almost beyond be lief when carefully catalogued, and they are found in every phase of pro gressive state building. In the last few years there has been added nearly two months to the aver age school term of the state, and the educational system was never upon so high a plane, and still advancing. The good roads conventions that met and talked and resolved every year have given way to the actual building of modern highways, until contracts, present and prospective, ag gregating millions of dollars. For a long time there was an un reasoning prejudice against scietffic methods for the eradication of the Tex as cattle tick. Now half the state is m covered with districts, and it has been ■ estimated that during the year 1915 9 there will be 230 dipp rig vats constru- <j cted. I The state is raising more wheat ^ than ever before, roller mills are be ing erected everywhere, and Arkansas Hour is demonstrated to equal the best on the market. Government agents estimate that Arkansas will produce 23,591,000 bushels of wheat, corn and oats more than was grown last year, when the total for the three grains was 49,865,000 bushels. That Arkan sas ranks third among the Southern States in the increased production ot these cereals is a. matter for con gratulation. There is prospect of a bumper corn srop, for many thousands of acres that were last year in cotton are this year in corn, and the season ;.as been fa vorable for its growth. Bust year the state raised 42,000,000 bushels of corn, ind this year's yield is estimated at 63 500,000. Not only in these three staple grains but in rice, forage plants, rruits, market gardening and otner products the the farm has there been a marked increase. Blooded stock more than ever before is engaging the attention of the progressive farmer. No small part of this movemen* *s due to the work of the Agricultural schools and one of the various kinds of practical Corn Clubs, Cotton Clubs, Pig Clubs, organizations under federal auspicies. Canning clubs, Peanut Clubs, and what not. It is unquestinably true that old-fashioned farmers have been taught valuable lessons by their sons who have imbibed the methods of the farm demonstrators demonstrated that the old, hap-hazard ways are produc tive of more chattel mortages and meager living than anything else -o- !
