The large crowds that are at tending the closing entertani ments of the school this weok indicates that Ashdown is for preparedness — preparedness for life. Educational prepared ness should not be considered merely in a selfish sense, not merely as a means to earn a few more dollars or to live in a finer house. Education is a safeguard to the state and the notion. Intelligence, trai.’nri intelligence, is our greatest pro tection against internal cor ruption. Civil despotism, crook edness and corruption are but the fruits of ignorance. Mexico is the result of an ignorant jKjpulation, which has been made the tools of designing and rotten leaders. To our mind the greatest thing that is taught in our schools is not the things teamed in text books, but it is proper ideals, the proper outlook on life and its duties. The public school is America’s greatest institutions Without ft «. free democratic govern ment would not be possible. The enemy of the public school is an enemy of the state and an enemy of intellectual, civil and religious freedom. The ideals taught in our school have been raised in the past decade. We have learned that we cannot all be lawyers, statesmen, profes sional men. We have learned that the world needs trained hands guided by trained minds in all the trades and profess ions, We have raised th,e dig nity of labor, and we are learn ing it through our public schools. Ashdown has placed her school interests first. Do not allow the hot summer months to catch you without water and sewer connections, for that is the season when you get the most good and enjoy ment from the sanitation and comfort attached. You event ually will, why not now? After a suspension of a few weeks the Lockesburg Tribune has resumed publication under the management of .T. W. Quinn. Mr. Quinn ;s a new man in this section of the state, but starts off like a man not strange to the business. The State Hospital squabble was settled by compromise. In other words, the little fellows were made the goats, which was all very satisfactory to the big ones. Those who have been getting water from the old town system had better get busy and tie into the new, as we are informed that the old will be cut off in a fewr days. The far-sighted landlord, who inits running water and sewer age into his rental property first, will get the pick of rent ers in his residence property. The man who clamors for war loudest usually expects the other fellow to do the fighting if war does come. Our 4tesire for warmer days nmi niglfits are being gratified.

One ot the prospective fights before the coming session of the Legislature will he the biennial agitatipp for the removal cf the University ol^Arkansas fron. Fayetteville to Little Rock. This has been an issue for many years, but it has never ma de'any great, headway. Gov. Hays Ig taking a hand in the project now; His first announcement that he favored removal, wgs made in the celebrated long-distance telephone speech to the Arkansas Press Assoc iation at Texarkana.

Ho', has decided to ask three prominent Southern edu cators, residing outgide of Arkansas, to make a survey of the situation, add submit a report as to the feasability of removal. Their recommendation wilt be incorporated in the farewell mes sage of Gov. Hays, accompanied by a strong argument in favor of removal.

In many counties about half t&e time of these agents has been deVo'tbd to this work, to the neglect of regular farm demonstrations. In hundreds of cas* es agents have spent four hours on the road, going and coming,*' and thirty minutes in vaccinating three or four hogs. Farmers can not afford to have their agents use their time in that way. There is only one remedy and ; hat is for each farmer to vaccinate his own hogs or for the farmers oil a neighborhood to arrange for one |pe t ‘.vc neighbors to do it.
