Pudlished Wednesday and Saturday CRAVES & GRAVES, Editors and Publishers. Entered- at the postofTice at Ash down, Arkansas, as second-class mail THE CO-OPERATIVE IDEA. The cooperative idea, so long preached, is being more widely practiced than ever before. Be ginning with the “Let. Arkan sas Feed Herself” campaign last fall and culminating in the splendid cooperation seen now during the marketing sea son between the Government, banks, farmers, merchants and all classes of professions. It is no time even now to stop to county laurels and throw bo quests, but we wish to give the Farmers’ Union credit for preaching the cooperative idea from the very beginning of its organization. In fact, if we understand it, cooperation is the keystone principle of that organization. All lasting vic tories effecting the whole soci ety must be won through coop eration. Let us enlarge on the idea and intensify the practice through the coming year and the years that are to follow. The Turks continue to mas sacre the Armenians following the entry of Bulgaria into the war. The Armenians are peace ful subjects of Turkey whose men are in the Turkish army The Turks have murdered hun dreds of thousands of the de fensless women and children. Why? Because the Armenians are Christians. The massacre of protestants by the catholics on Bartholamew’s Day pale into almost insignificance in comparison. The first was in the fifteenth century, the latter in the twentieth. The unspeak able Turk has been and is be ing protected by Christian na tions, at one time England, now by Germany. This war will not have been in vain should it result in the utter annihilation of the Turkish nation, a result which is doubtful. Baseball is the national saf ety valve. In Europe baseball has never taken hold, the great sport being the war game. We believe that healthful clean sports have an influence for good upon the minds and tem peraments of a people. We be lieve that there is a peculiar something in human nature that requires an outlet, a safety vaive, that comes to us as a heritage from the primeval man- This something must have a safe outlet of escape in order to retain the normal bal ance, or else the eruption or exlposion follows as a natural result. There is a thought here for the pyschologist. A representative of a city daily was in this city after subscriptions this week, his slogan was, “Take your home paper first and then take mine.” Your home paper is doing more for your interest than mine will ” That was honest and right. Build up home institu tions and home institutions will help build your interest up. That is cooperation. Are you cooperating with the News, making Little River county’s leading paper first? Things to brag about: Ash down will soon have something that Texarkana, Little Rock and other big towns would be proud to have, a city owned water and sewerage plant. This government is to recog nize Carranza, which never would have been possible had he shaved off his whiskers. At the rate drugs are going up being sick will soon be a luxury that few can afford As an example of one way i your paper may profit you we | dare say that most of our read ers have saved money this week and will next week by having their attention attract ed to the bargains offered by some of our leading business houses. You saved money o.i goods, we made money for the advertiser and will retain his business. We all gained; we are all pleased. More buildings, Improving of homes and painting is going on in Ashdown now that at any time in the past two years, all of which is right and proper and a natural result of the big lead taken by the city. Some of our farmers are wor rying about what they are go ing to do with all their pea hay. Save it all and let the future provide a use for it. The men who sold cotton in Ashdown this week for thirteen cents evidently did not consider 13 and unlucky number. PROGRESS IN SEYIER COUNTY. In a letter published in Farm ana Ranch, J. A. Wofford, special agent, says that some three years ago in Se veir county it was common to see one horse or mule to a breaking plow and but little plowing until spring, while now you see two or three horses or mules to breaking plows, plowing all fall and winter. Gardens have been rebuilt and enlarged and farmers are putting up a good supply of canned goods for home use. Many have tak en wagon loads of canned goods to town to sell—peaches, tomatoes, beans, cabbage and peppers. There has been 75 per cent increase in the cultivation of radishes, spinach, Eng lish peas, strawberries, cantaloupes and fall beans. Sweet potato culture has gained 50 per cent and almost every farmer has sorghum molasses to sell. The culture of peanuts has increased from one carload to 25 to 30 carloads. Cowpea culture has in creased 200 per cent and wheat from 25 to 30 acres to 1,200 acres. Mr. 'Wofford says farmers have bought new grain binders, new thresh ers, mowing machines, hay rakes, bull rakes and hay presses. There are two power hay presses that can bale 1,000 bales of hay a day. There are corn shellers and three chop mills. A 25 barrel roller flour mill, built this year, has made a> fine grade of flour every day since July 10. Sevier county built three silos in 1914 and 22 in 1915 and all of them are filled. The county was incorpora ted in the tick eradication district in February and there are now 11 vats completed with four other building. In 11 months of 1914 Sevier county stood charged with buying in carload lots $72,000 worth of meat, $15,000 worth of feed, $112,000 worth of flour, $14,000 worth of canned goods and $10 000 worth of potatoes, but It is now moving over to the selling side. In view of these great agricultural strides it is not surprising to be told by Special Agent Wofford’s letter that some school districts have been con solidated, with longer terms of school, and that there has been improvement in both roads and bridges. _n-— Notice of Sale.

Roach of Si loam Springs, Ark., was long a sufferer from stom ach troubles and related disorders common in this section of the coun try. Along with his stomach trouble he was occasionally attacked by la grippe. He was congested, unhappy, nervous—just like la grippe always makes one feel. He gave Mayr’s Wonderful Remedy a trial. He was surprised at the swiftness with which his trouble van ished. He wrote: When your trial treatment was received I was getting better on an- j other treatment, so I deferred taking : your medicine until an unusually se- ' vere attack of lagrippe came upon , me. Previously I have had to just wear out such attacks. I thought this a good test. I took your medicine according to directions and was never more surprised in my life. In thirty six hours the grippe was knocked silly and I have felt like a new man ever since.’ Mayr’s Wonderful remedy gives per manent results for stomach, liver and intestinal ailments. Eat as much and whatever you like. No more distress after eating, pressure or gas in the , stomach and around the heart. Get one bottle of your druggist now and try it on an absolute guarantee—if not satisfactory money will be returned.
