other elements enter into the

why an honest and intelligent

The advertising value that it
will give the towns along the
line, to say nothing of financial
benefits, will be equally as great
as would be a new line of rail
road. The Lincoln Highway in
the northern states is said to be
about as busy a thoroughfare as
a busy street, national tourists,
pleasure seekers out to see the
country and spend money.

nlng for Governor.
To the People of Arkansas:
The professor is strong for wanting
to make other people pay their tuxes,
but he is weak on paying taxes him
self. For the first six years the pro
fessor was in Arkansas (teaching po
litical economy in the university), he
drew approximately $12,000 from the
taxpayers of the state, and only paid
one little measly dollar in taxes back
to the state. The poll tax goes into
♦he common school fund, to help sup
port the common schools, and to edu
cate the little children of Arkansas.
The following table, taken from the
records of Washington county, shows
that he did not pay one cent of taxes
for the years 1904, 1905, 1906, 1907
and 1908, although he was being fed
and clothed by the tax payers of Ar
kansas during that time.

State of Arkansas, County of
I, Thad Berry, a notary public with
in and for the county and state afore
said, duly commissioned and acting,
do hereby certify that, so far as I have
been able to ascertain, after having
made a diligent search of the records,
t.he foregoing is a true and correct
statement of personal and real estate
assessments and tax receipt books of
Washington county, Arkansas, so far
as the same show any assessments
made or taxes paid by Dr. C. H.
Brough of Fayetteville, Ark.
In witness whereof, I have here
unto set my hand and seal of office at
Fayetteville, Ark., this January 18,
My commission expires February 1,
Dr. Brough Paid No Poll Tax.
The Doctor is strong for the Uni
versity (paying him), but apparently
does not care to help the common
school fund himself.
He talks about good roads, but for
five years, while a resident of Arkan
sas, he did not pay any road tax, the
only road he cared for, apparently,
being the road to the state treasury.
He loves Arkansas tor what he can
get out of the treasury, it seems. He
came here to accept a well-paying po
sition, and the chances are that when
defeated in this race he may go West,
where his fortune is located. He has
been paid approximately $30,000 by
the taxpayers of this state, and I un
derstand forwards his surplus money
to the Utah National F.nk, in Ogden,
Utah, where he has wealth, estimated
at from thirty to fifty thousand dol
lars—thus not paying any taxes on
this money in Arkansas, and depriv
ing the banks of Arkansas of this de
Negroes to Be Assessors.
He advocates the assessment of the
real estate in Arkansas by the jus
tices of the peace in each township,
which he says will make everybody
assess their property. It is well known
that there are one hundred and fifty
negro justices of the peace in South
and *Rast Arkansas, i know that the
people in those sections are not ror
that plan, and that the white voters
of the other parts of Arkansas will
not force it upon their neighbors in
that part of the State. I am not in fa
vor of any new offices, but it might be
well to employ some additional collec
tor* in Washington County to help
collect the poll tax from Professor
Brough. We should not be surprised
that the professor advocates negro as
sessor a, as it is in line with his
speech made in behalf of the negro
race in Washington, D. C„ in which
he said that the white man should
not object to being the "winning part
ner of the negro."
Qualified Veter Only Six Years.
The records of Washington County
show that the professor has been a
qualified elector of Arkansas only six
years, although he has been drawing
a high salary for twelve years; and
everybody knows that he has been an
' avowed candidate for governor evei
aince he began paying hie poll tax.
If the profeisor voted in the va
rious city, school, congressional, gen
j eral and primary elections the five
years he failed to pay his poll tax, he
! committed each time an indictable of
fense. If he did not vote he was dere

Great Teacher This.
A grea< teacher to Instill into the

: pies of good government, when it ap

i first principles of citizenship! He

did go to school to Wilson. Wilson
couldn't help It; however, the facts
are that he did not go to school to
President Wilson, but was in another
university where Wilson occasionally
lectured. Woodrow Wilson was presi
dent of one of the greatest universities
of America for many years, but Dr.
Brough has never been mentioned, nor
even thought of, by any of the univer
| sity boards as being qualified for the
i position oi president of the University
'■ of Arkansas.
I am a native of Arkansas and have
! been a taxpayer ever since I was twen
ty-one years of age; I do not believe
the good people of Arkansas will de
feat me for governor and nominate a
man who is merely passing through
this State. I have faith in the good
people of Arkansas and I submit my
candidacy to them.

TELL ABOUT HEALTH
A lot of Arkansas people are need
lessly suffering from stomach ail
ments. A lot of others have found a
way to health and deliverance from
the derangements of the digestive
tract, which seems to be particularly
prevalent in the South, by the use
of Mayr’s Wonderful Remedy.
There is not better proof of what
this truly remarkable remedy will do
than what it has done. Here are the
words of two Arkansas people:
WILLIAM A. HARMAN, tDeWttt,
Ark., writes: “I took your full treat
ment and was greately benefited by it,
The amount of impurities removed
from my system was simply wonder
CHARLIE SRENCER, Mouticello,
Ark, writes: “I received your won
derful remedy and did not take it
right away because I thought the
dose was too largo. But I felt so bad
that I made up mind to take It, and
it has worked like a charm and has
helped me »;o much my stomach feels
like a new one.”
Mayr’s Wonderful Remedy gives
permanent results for stomach, liver
and intestinal ailments. Eat as much
and whatever you like. No more dis
tress after eating, pressure of gas in
the stomach and around the heart.

We the undersigned Physicians of
Little River county, Arkansas, realiz
ing the financial condition of the
country, and the custom of some of
our people, to mortgage everything
they have for supplies for another

leaving absolutely nothing to pay
their physicians for medicine or medi
cal attendance in time of sickness o>
themselves or their family, a matter
as important to themselves and to
the party who is to furnish them, a::
the supplies are. For in this country
people will have sickness in their
family, a:u: will suffer and may cue
without incur* al attention.
Realizing further that we feed anu

w-e feel forced, in justice to ourselves
and families to hei*eby give notice to
such parties that in the future we can
not give any such parties medicine
and medical attention, unless such
party, at the time of the execution ol
such mortgage, expressly exempt from
their mortgage, and provide therein
sufficient funds to pay their doctor
bill or reserve from said mortgage
sufficient property with which to se

justice to ourselves and families as

“Granny” Chamberlain ' “Few youjng mothers realize the extent to
which a cold lowers the system and makes it susceptible to con
