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

KATY PASSENGER ROBBED
Two Itnbhors Hold up Train, but Se
cure only ( heap .7ewr~'y.
Eufaula, Okla.. 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 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
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.

tures in this village, comprising the
native thatched huts of the Samoan,
or as they were formerly called, the
Navigator islands, were brought In

absolutely faithful in all their fea

aquatic feats in which the islanders
excel, and dance the rhythmic native
dances. The life of the people of the

than the Samoans who exhibit many
traces of Aryan descent. No Exposi

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.
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
