Roach of Siloam 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 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 | •rer since.’ Mayr’s Wonderful remedy gives per manent results for stomach, liver and Intestinal ailments.

BRITIANWiLL NOT GIVE UP Nation Determined to Fight on To Victory, Premier Tells House; I'rges Great Sacrifices. London, Nov. 3.—Premier Asquith, made his long-expected address on the war in the House of Commons today. The premier was given a warm ova tion when he rose to speak, this being his first appearance since his recent illness. Premier Asquith said his statement had been delayed by circustancc? oVer which he had no control. He would disappoint many expectations, ho continued, not the least the expec tations of these who thought he ought to appear as a criminal or a. penitent. He intended, he said, to describe as far as possible, the protective position to the nation which “is as determined today, as it ever has been to prosecute the war to a successful conclusion, and which trusts the government, by whomsoever controlled, to use every means to the attainment of that purpose.”’ \ot Brightest Outlook. lie continued: “Today some parts of the horizon are overcast. This, like other wars, has been fruitful of surprises and dis appointments. The moment calls for three things—a proper sense of per spective, a limitless stock of patience, and overflowing reservoirs of courage, both active and passive.” Mr. Asquith referred to the small coterie of professional whimperers which kept the enemies supplied daily “with a diet of falsehoods.” The government, he said, had no in terest in concealing anything, subject to tlie one overriding consideration that its disclosure would not assist Great Britain’s enemies. Sees Success for Slavs. Referring to the eastern war theater the premier paid a warm tribute to the fighting qualities of the Russians and express! d confidence in their ability “before long to roll back the enemy.” As to Mesopotamia, Mr. Asquith re marked, the British object was to pre serve the neutrality of the Arabs, safe guard British interests in the Persian Gulf and uphold the authority of the Union Jack in the east. "Our victo l'ious force is now within measurable distance of Bagdad.’” he continued. “No operations have been conducted with greater brilliancy or with better prospects of final success.’” METHODIST MISSION Methodist Missionary Society Enter tained by Mrs. Thill. One cC the most delightful enter tainments of the Methodist Missionary society was given on Wednesday after noon when Mrs. E. C.

For this occasion rooms were made beautiful and bright with decorations of chrysanthemums, in bouquets, baskets, and in banks upon mantles, tables and sideboards, while brilliant autumn foliage and restoons adorned the walls, nooks and corners.

Walnut Ridge, Nov. 2.—Miss Bettie Burleson. 18, was murdered and her head severed from the body about noon today in a cotton field. Her stepfather, Will Dobbs, 25, who was with her at the time, is being held by the sheriff in some secret place pend ing the outcome of the coroner’s In quest. Feeling ran high here tonight and threats of lynching are free heard on the streets. Dobbs declared he was in the field picking cotton with the girl when 3 masked men came across the field and attacked them. Dobbs tcdd neighbors that he fought the masked men and then escaped, but was unable to assist his stepdaughter, who, he says, was attacked by one of the men with a large pocket knife. Immediately after wards he notified neighbors and led them to the spot where the body was found. Bloodhounds were brought here from Popular Bluff. The only trail they followed was made by Dobbs. Dobbs told his story and the sheriff took him into custody. No formal charge was made against him, but he is held pending Investigation. It is not known where he was taken. .irmeii -wen rnrsue mncers. A report reached here late this aft ernoon from the scene of the murdei that the sheriff and his deputies rush ed Dobbs from the Rhea’s farm vicin ity, where the murder took place, to the jail at Jonesboro, a distance of about 15 miles. A telephone message frcim Jones boro tonight, however, said the party had not arrived there. It was said that soon after leaving the Rhea’s farm a mob of residents of that com munity gathered and pursued the sheriff and his prisoner so hotly that the officer was forced to change his route as well as his destination. Noth ing has been heard from him tonight. It is believed, however, that he is hid ing out somewhere in the river bot toms. It is said tonight that an examinat ion will be made of the body of the dead girl to ascertain if she was In delicate condition. Officers are inves tigating this as a probable motive. —-o-— A CORRECTION' In the previous report of an intcr v!ew with one of the returned delegat es from Little Rock convention of the Arkansas Federation of Women’s clubs a typographical error together with the confusion of telephone trans mission caused cue paragraph -,o be more amusing than intelligible. The correct version follows: “The convention program was a ver itable feast, with the lectures and re ports a substantial diet. The music a delectable relish, Mrs. Percy Penny backer, president G. F. W. C„ an Irres istable entree, while the ices and mints of the social favors were most refreshing as the finale of every ses sion.” Some of the prominent men of our state who addressed the convention were Dean Miller of the Extension D? partment of the University; Hon. J. L. Bond, supervisor of rural education, Durand Whipple, whose address was on the Menace of the Feeble-minded; Carl J. Baer, secretary chamber or commerce and Mayer Taylor, o” Little. Dean Miller said—“Productiveness is an essential part of the plan of crea tion, as is formed the partnership of man with the Creator.” “The curse of debt is a menace to prosperity in the South, our share in the burden collective , a public duty to help alleviate unfortunate condition of the individual.” Hon. J. L. Bond emphasized the im portance of the compulsory attend ance school law. He said the excuse on ground of dependence for support was not humane—that every child should have the right to an education under any and all circumstances.'" Confirmation Notice.
