Chester, 21, yesterday was held to the grand jury by a coroner's jury at Carlisle. Columbus and Charles Bowers, bro thers of Pat Bawers, were released, by the jury and rearrested by Sheriff Pat Swain of Lonoke an warrants charging them with being accessories to the murders. It developed at the inquest that Pat Rowers, between the time he shot Dr. Crawford and his son and the time he shot special Deputy Constable John ston, left bis father’s house, where tlte shooting occurred, and went to the home of Pierce and Harron. negro neighbors. They testified that he ask ed them to return with him, but that I hey refused, it is believed he went to the Harron home to secure more am munition. Bowers is said to have re turned to '.is father’s house and to have shot Dr. Crawford and his son again and then to have shot Johnston. Some Carlisle residents believe the Harron negroes were implicated in the shooting, but there was not suffic ient evidence against them to warrant their arrests. The two brothers of the dead negro testified that they were not at home when the shooting occur red. Says Other Negroes Participated Young Crawford, according to tes timony at the inquest, told severa* persons at Carlisle that he was sure more than one negro took part in the murders. The young man is also said to have told friends that Jim Johnston said just before he was kill ed, that Old Jake did the shooting. Both the Harron negroes and Jake Bowers testified at the inquest that Pat Bowers had a pump gun. No pump gun was found at the Bowers house. A shot gun. rifle and two revolvers were found in the house. One of the revolvers was taken from Dr. Crawford’s packet as he lay on the ground. It was also learned yes terday that Pat Bowers was killed within the house probably by a volley of shots fired through the ceiling by the posse as they entered the house. The negro was found lying on his face on the floor of the house, with two bullet wounds in his breast, eith er of which would have caused his death. His guns were lying at some distance and on a bed a fact whicn tends to disprove the theory that the negro committed suicide. , TEXARKANA TO CELEBRATE Texarkana Will Celebrate Tlieir For ty-Second Anniversary.

HOW TO MARKET SORGHUM SYRUP Commissioner Pago Says Put up Sor ghum in Nice and Neat Palls. Hum Goods Wont Sell. Little Rock, Sept. 17.—(Special.)— Commissioner Page in a letter to the interest of the farmers, has the fol lowing to say in regard to the making of sorghum: “Sorghum making time is now with us and the sorghum mills are running full-blast. In a few weeks the coun try will apparently overrun with sorghum, and the question will arise, how to convert the surplus sorghum into money. It is a hard problem if you go about it wrong and an easy one if you go about it right. As a matter of fact there is not encaigh sorghum this year to supply the home demand, so far as Arkansas is con cerned. The first step to get money out. of sorghum is to produce good sorghum. The next is to put it into marketable shape. The wrong way is to put the molasses into a barrel, keg or jugs and take to town mer chants. Me may not tell you so, but he knows that he cannot sell to the best advantage that way. The right way is to get seme tin syrup can or buckets, with self sealing or friction tops. These can be had from any hardware dealer, in quarts, half gal lon and gallon sizes. If the hardware dealer does not have them ask him to order them. You can’t get them for from five to'seven cents each. Mo lasses put up in these cans should keep thorughout the year and not get too strong. Use assorted sizes of cans, so the demand of the retail dealer can be met. It would be wise to go to your local printing office and have some neat labels printed. They will cost you only about a dollar a hundred. Paste the labels on neatly. Always remember that the neatness and the attractiveness of the pack age is the first step to a good sale in this day and time. The American people are paying more for paper boxes, tin cans, pretty labels and gilt letters now than at any time in the history of our country. Quality is seldom considered unless the package Ireks good. Bum goods will sell in n pretty package; good goods will not sell in a bum package. When ready for market, take your goods to the merchant in town and offer them for sale at fifty cents per gallon, with the cost of the package added. Don’t go around and ask what they will give. For once in your life assume the "ight that belongs to every producer ind put your own price on your pro duct. If you can’t sell then go to the consumers and sell at sixty cents per sallon in competition with the mer chants. If this plan fails to dispose of what you have, then go to the post master and see what it will cost to ship each different size package by parcel post. Then fix your prices ac cordingly and advertise in the county paper to sell delivered oy parcel post, and guarantee the quality. If you cannot guarantee the quality then all plans will fail you. If your ad in the county paper fails to sell your product, then send a sample can to seme brokers in some of the nearby cities, give him your price and let him sell for you. paying him the us ual commission of five per cent. I mention prices and plans of selling because first, the prices are fair to the producer, consume r and middle man; and second, because the mer chant and business men who have stood for the doctrine of diversificat ion should be willing to show their faith by their work, in co-operating with the farmers in disposing of their products profitably, and I believe they will. Many of them have tci'd me they would. A home man 'should al ways give preference to a home pro duct. The merchants should give preference to home-made products and handle on small profits, because it keeps the money at home and helps home folks. The farmers should pat ronize home merchants for the same reasons. This kind of cooperative spirit is good for the town and the country. “ Lastly, save plenty of good sor ghum seed for next year." -o LINE UP IS COMPLETE The (■ubernat.ionul Line-Up Hn> Pro. bably Come to a Show Down.
