LITTLE RIVER NEWS
Pudiished Wednesday and Saturday GRAY E S & G R AYES, Editors and Publishers. Entered at the postolhce at Ash down, Arkansas, as second-class mail DEMONSTRATION. County demonstration work in Little River County after this year is dead, for one year at least. The greatest work that lias every been undertaken in the South, the work that has produced greater good than any other from an economical standpoint, must come to a pause. Our quorum court with a wave of the hand has dismiss ed the work of the greatest farmers, the greatest scholars, the greatest agricultural scien tists of our time as a failure and not worthy of further con sideration. It is not our object to criticise the quorum court, for that body was heard only the knocking of objectors. The friends of demonstration have remained passive, they have slept on their rights, have not been energetic in talking and working for a continuance of the work, it lias been a bad year for the work to show up for what it was worth in vis ible results, yet (he good re sults have been many and fruit ful. We hear less of the hun dreds of hogs that have been rendered immune from cholera through vaccination than we do of the 7 or 8 that died through human error in admin istering. We hear less of the boy farmers, who are being fired with a love for their work and an ambition to do great things and still greater things with the old farm, than we do from the man whose mind is not open to anything different from his own experience. We know of men who have absorbed bet ter farming methods, who re fuse openly to indorse demon stration, yet they have taken lip many better methods not practiced by them before and are profiting by them. Little River county is today harvest ing more feed and hay than ever before. Why? We art growing more sorghum, pea nuts, potatoes, and thinking more about better stock than ever before. Why? Human progress and betterment has come up through great discour agement through ali the ages. It is the price that must be paid. Jesus Christ was rejected of men, spit upon and scoffed at, and then crucified, yet Chris tianity will live through all time and into eternity. The early advocates of temperance had an uncomfortable time, yet today we see the movement sweeping the world. We ex pect too much too quick. We expect a revolution when there is no such thing only through evolution. The doctor’s medi cine doesn’t benefit the patient who refuses to take it, and we would be willing to guarantee that no man who knocked dem onstration to the members of the quorum court has ever prac ticed demonstration methods - or taken the slightest Interest in it. A jeering crowd stood on the banks as Fulton made ready to start his first steam boat up the Hudson. Colum bus was cuffed from the courts of Europe as a silly fool, and his young manhood until his old age, before he at last set sail for a new world. We must not be discouraged. Inestima ble good has already been ac complished in this county by demonstration. The seed has been planted, the roots have taken hold and the enterpris ing farmors will see that it flourishes and bears fruit. They will keep the interest from lag ging until this or some other quorum court restores to them county and government aid. The hands of the clock of agri cultural progress must not be set back.

Oct. 27.—Three pcsscs of deputies and citizens are to day beating the forests and marshes of the Canadian river bottoms near Onapa, and working their way toward the Winding Stair mountains, in search of seven robbers who, this morning held up the south bound Katy passenger train number nine. They failed in their attempt to open three safes in the express cars and did not even attempt to molest the passengers. The holdup occurred a few miles north of here and at the same place in which the same train was help up and robbed three years ago. Two of the baindits it is believed, boarded the train at Muskogee, and later they crawled into the cab. When the engineer attempted to stop the train they ordered him to keep it run ning and did C‘!it allow him to slow down until they reached a camp fire near the track where the other band its were in awiting. They held the train two hours while they worked on the safes, whetn they left, wishing the trainmen "good night.” Brakeman Ed Oldham of the pas senger train started to go back to flag a freight train which was due to fol low the passenger, but was stopped when a bullet clipped off the end or his left thumb. He then p rsuaded the robbers to let him flag the train, stating the injury and death which would surely come from a collision, and was accompanied by one of the robbers in his mission. The freight was stopped in time to avoid a wreck, but one member of the freight crew, learning the source of the trouble ran back six miles and telephon d officials regarding the rob bery, who immediately organized and set out on their trail with bloodhounds. < ommissioner’s Sale.

The photograph snows the nelle ot the interesting Samoan village at the Panama-Pacific International Ex position at San Francisco The struc tures in this village, comprising the native thatched huts of the Samoan, or as they were formerly called, the Navigator islands, were brought In tact from the native villages and are absolutely faithful in all their fea tures. There are many native fam- i ilies living in the village who tor | the edification of visitors perform the aquatic feats in which the islanders excel, and dance the rhythmic native dances. The life of the people of the Pacific ocean is wonderfully illus trated at the Exposition, and of all j the races none are more interesting than the Samoans who exhibit many traces of Aryan descent.

CHOMIlIS MERCURY! IT SICKENST ACTS OH LIVER LIKE DYNAMITE “Dodson’s Liver Tone" Starts Your Liver Better Than Calomel and Doesn’t Salivate or Make You Sick. Listen to me! Take no more sick ening. salivating calomel when bilious or constipated. Don’t lost' a day’s work! Calomel is mercury or quicksilver which causes necrosis of the bones. Calomel, when it comes into contact with sour bile crashes into it, breaking it up. This is when you feel that awful nausea and cramping. If you arc slug gish and “all knocked out,” if your liver is torpid and bowels constipated or you have headache, dizziness, coated tongue, if breath is had or stomach sour just take a spoonful of harmless Dod son’s Liver Tone on my guarantee. \ 1 Here’s my guarantee—Co to any drug store and get a 50 cent l*>ttlo of Dod son’s Liver Tone. Take a spoonful to night and if it doesn’t straighten you right up and make you feel line and vigorous l>y morning I want you to go hack to the store and get your money. Dodson’s Liver Tone is destroying the sale of calomel because it is real liver medicine; entirely vegetable, therefore it can not salivate or make you siok. I guarantee that one spoonful of Dod son’s Liver Tone will put your sluggish liver to work and clean your bowels of that sour bile and constipated waste which is clogging your system and mak ing you feel miserable. I guarantee that a bottle of Dodson’s Liver Tom* will keep your entire family feeling fine for months. Give it to your children. It is harmless; doesn’t gripo and they like its pleasant taste.
