We are passing through a period just now that means sure, solid am' continued expansion in the fut ure and assures us a larger place in the sun. The two im portant public utlities just near ing completion, water and sew erage, are the most modern that can be built. Our public school building in course of construc tion is to be both modern and ample. We have reached the transitory stage and have taken the right turn at which so many towns of the size balk, and thus lose their opportunity of ever being anything but an over grown country village. Ash down has laid the foundation for a city, a model little city with all the comforts and con veniences and sanitary facilit ies of the model big city, such a place as in which it will be an increasing joy and pride to live and call home. President Wilson declares that the United States should be adequately prepared, not for war. but for defenses. The spir it of Americanism is not one of aggression, therefore there will never be any danger of our seeking war. The past year has taught the world over again that wars come without the seeking. There is a growing sentiment that our defenses should be so powerful that no nation or combination of nat ions would dare invade our rights or disturb our peace. Through co-operation with the Agricultural Extension De partment of the University, the News is enabled to give to its readers the home study course, in orcharding, gardening and other topics. These study cour ses will appear every few days in this paper during the fall and waiter. They will be hand led by experts in these lines, and will no doubt benefit those who study them Even treaties are not a sure preventative of war. nor do they always direct the course of nations. Italy broke her treaty with the Germans and joined the Allies, and now com es Greece threatening to break her treaty with Servia and join the Germans. The only pre ventative would be to recreate man leaving out hatred, greed, malice and a few other items. The hogs are now fattening on the greatest pea crop in (lie history of this section.

Ark. Fanners Have Not Been Advised Sufficiently During I’ast Nears. Little Rock. Oct. 7.—(Special.) — The last ten years have demonstrated that the Arkansas farmer has not been thoroughly advised upon the po tentialities oi the soil. A few years ago, cotton was practically the only money crop grown, but now it is one of a do-fn, and new crops are being discovered all the time. It is within the memory of the pre sent generation that rice, strawberri es, cantaloupes, tomatoes, alfalfa, winter wheat, and live stock have tak en their proper place In the Industrial interests of the state, and in the ag gregate they are already greater than the cotton industry. Two other crops, somewhat unique in the South, that are just now being brought to public attention are garlic and sunflower seed. In some sections both have been grown to advantage as a money crop and the acreage is to be greatly increased. --o BUYS LOCKESBUKG TRIBl .NK Former Owner Has Leased the Hor atio Times.
