Sunday afternoon performances mem

DIPPING VAT
FOR RICHMOND
Richmond Citizens Will Have a Hip
ping Vat to Hip Their Cattle.
Will be of Concrete.
At a recent meeting of the farmers
and business men of Richmond, the
question of building a co-operative
cattle dipping vat was discussed. The
men were higly in favor of construct
ing a vat that will serve the purpose
of dipping their cattle, and any other
livestock of their farms, that become
infested with any pests. The con
struction of this vat is a problem
that confronts every live stock owner
of the county. We need strongly
built vats, that will last an average
lifetime; for there is every indica
tion that such equipment will be con
venient to dip hogs sheep and cat
tle so long as such animals are grown
in this section of the state. By put
ting up a co-operative vat, with three
or more parties interested, the total
costs are reduced considerably. The
writer is only tco glad to see the
growing interest manifested in the
building of these vats In this section
of the state.
I am quite sure there will be sev
eral other such dipping vats built in
this county before the year is finished.
By driving out the Texas fever ticks,
and other live stock pests, we will
soon place this region on par with the
most wide awake cattle producing
sections of Arkansas, or any other
state. I can get a man from the De
partment, who will come here and as
sist in the building of these vats. Any
one wishing farther information rela
tive to this problem, will please get
in touch with me at an early date.—
H. J. Tyson, County Farm Demonstra
tion Agent.

Texarkana, Oct. 18.—Yesterday Sec
retary Quinn was over to Ashdown
and motored with some of the Com
mercial Club men of that enterprising
place, found that $100,000 worth of
road building was in progress in Lit

GRAVEL HAUL
IS RESUMED
Finest Grade of Pike County Gravel
Is Mow Being Received for
the Focal Roads.
After a delay of several days, while
the gravel loading crew was changing
to a new gravel pit in Pike county,
work of laying gravel on the Pine
Prairie road was resumed Monday. A
consignment of eleven cars were on
the track Monday morning and Con
tractor .las. G. Sanderson is assured
that he will be able to get any amount
desired regularly in the future. The
gravel now being received is similar
to that used a few years ago on the
main streets of Ashdown and is In
ferior to no gravel for the purpose.
It hardens into a bed as solid as con
crete and presents a smooth surface.
The first gravel used made a hard bed
but made a rough jolting road. The
large rocks on this road will be re
moved and more gravel will be placed
in its place, according to Contractor
Sandr^p.
Mr . Sanderson stated Monday aft
ernoon that he was short 30 or more
teams. There is still a great deal of
grading to be done on the north end
of the Pine Prairie road and the Rich
mond road. About half of the grad
ing has been completed on the Ogden
road.

ROBBERS MAKE BIG HAUL
Express Office at Hope Roliheil of $34o
Saturday Night.
Hope, Oct. 18.—The office of the
Southern Express company, which is
located in the Louisiana and Arkan
sas railroad freight depot, was enter
ed by robbers Saturday evening be
tween 6 and 6:30 o’clock and robbed
of $345.75 in cash. The robbers also
secured three drafts, which were made
payable to the Louisiana and Arkan
sas railroad and endorsed to the bank
in Minden, La., amounting to $2,400,
but it is not thought the drafts will be
presented for payment.
In making an exit from the build
ing the robbers sprinkled the win
dows and the floor in the office of
Agent Lambeth with large quantities
of ground pepper in an effort to cover
up any trace of them.
The robbery was kept secret until
this morning, when it leaked out.
Officers, however, were put to work
on the case at once, but up to this
time no clue to the robbery has been
made. Officers who are working on
the case believe it was the work of
one or more expert yeggs.
WASHOUTS ON FRISCO
ON OKLAHOMA LINE
All Main Line Passenger Traings Be
ing Detoured Over the K. C. S
Tracks to Ashdown.
Washouts between Hugo and Po
teau, Okla., has delayed all train ser
vice on the main line of the Frisco
railroad. Since Sunday all main line
passenger and mail trains have been
run over the Kansas City Southern
tracks to this city, and then over the
Hope and Ardmore branch of the
Frisco ta Hugo, Okla., where they
again take up their regular runs.
The information of the exact loca
tion of the washouts in Oklahoma
has not been ascertained. The heav
iest rains in the history of the coun
try caused the loss rtf several miles of
track, and it is believed that the scene
of the washout is near Antlers, where,
are several small but dangerous
streams.
It is also reported that six spans of
the Katy bridge over the Red River,
north of Denison, also are gone as the
result of heavy rains in West Texas
and Oklahoma. This track is used by
both the Frisco and the Katy.

you are to write the history of your
crop; that is to state in your own lan

very best ten selected ears of corn,
which was grown on the plot of land,
