Prepare for Next Season;
Arrange for Seed This Month
BY J. R. CAVANAGH
Written specially for the News:
There are any number of things
that we can do this fall to lighten the
burden of work next spring. If we
can get the cotton picked and turn
under the stouble and the weed patches
we will be getting the land in good
condition to be worked early in the
spring, and the sooner we do that the
better.
By turning under the green vegeta
tion before the frost kills it we can
add that one element in which so
many of cur lands are deficient and
that is humus. (This is of special val
ue to the farmers in this county where
manure and other organic matter is
so scarce.
But the fields should not he left fal
low over winter. Some cover crops
such as clover, cats, or rye, should be
sown on the land to hold the plant
foods from leaching and to protect
the land from washing in the heav>
winter rains. These crops will pro
tect the land and the same time fur
nish pasture through the winter. True,
they will not lurnish any great
amount of pasture, but they may be
pastured lightly and can be then
plowed down in the spring to add
more humus to the soil.
Oats and rye are especially good tor
this purpose as the clover does not
furnish much pasture, especially if
the weather should happen to be wet
any considerable portion of the win
ter. Furthermore, the cost of the clo
ver seed is so high that one does not
like to put so much into a crop that
is to be turned under in the spring.
The farmer who is going to grow
truck crops of melons this next sea
son should pay especial attention to
his land this fall. By plowing down
the green vegetation before the frost
hits it and by growing some cover
crop for turning under in the spring
he can get his land into fine condi
tion for early truck and melons.
He should Degin to tnintt, too, acuut
securing manure for his truck crops.
Some of the growers in the county are
going to purchase^ their manure from
the stock yards in Kansas City. The
railroads have made special rates up
on this manure both for manure and
for the* hauling so that it can be laid
down in any station in Little River
county at a nominal price. But all
who intend to order manure for win
ter or spring delivery should be doing
so at once as the stock yard people
have orders for several hundred cru -
loads already booked. Further in
formation as regard stock manure
can be had from J. H. Tull at Mena.
The question of cantaloupe seed
should be looked into as well. I have
just returned from a trip to Rocky
Ford. and the best growers at thap
point say that all growers who ar&
going to grow cantaloupes next sea
son should get in their orders for
seed at ance as the supply is rather
limited. Cantaloupe seed is never
scarce, but good cantaloupe seed Is,
and the sooner orders aroi placed the
more sure one can be of obtaining
good seed. The price for Rocky Ford
seed is a dollar and a half a pound
for the best or where seed is bought
by an association this same seed cas
be had for a dollar a pound. This price
may seem a little steep but the grow
ers at Winthrop will tell you that It
will pay you to buy nothing but the
best when it comes to cantaloupe seed.

SEED SELECTION DAY
September 27tli Has Been Set, for Sel*
eetion of Planting Seed.
Little IRock, Sept. 18.—(Special).^.
Reports received at the headquarters
of the Agricultural Eytension Service
afe that the farmers are greatly in
terested in the proposition for a Seed
Selection day on September 27. Splen
<li(l results have been accomplished by
the selection oi the best cotton as well
a.^ corn for seed. The Pulaski Conn
ty demonstration agent says that it
would be a good investment for a
farmer to pay a man who under
stands it $25 a day to go into his field
and select cotton for seed, rather than j
to depend as practically farmers do,
upon the gin-run seed.
Early fall plowing, more hogs, the'
planting cf cover crops, and the rais
ing of mere lover are among the
tilings which are being urged by the*
Service at this time.
There is no question that the hot.
and dr* weather which was prevalent
over most of the state this year saved
our cotton growers from heavy losses
on account cf the boll weevil, said
Dean J. H. Miller of the Agricultural
Extension Division of the University.
However, a great many farmers of tiis
state realize the importance of diver
sification and there is every indica
tion that there is more land to ba
' planted in the various field crops nexr
i year than ever betcre. Splendid re
| suits are promised from the clove*
and legum campaigns conducted this
j year, just drawing to a close.
! INVITATION TO AUTOMOBILE MEN
| Will Meet in Little Rock tlie ITIlt to

Little Rock. Sept. 18.—(Special).—
The Little Rock Motor Club has issu
ed a call for motorists in all sections
j of the state to journey to Little Rock

Senator J. M. Futtrell. who drafted ,
i Amendment No. 14, is expected to b&
' one of the speakers at the meeting. He
i will go into the amendment very thor
oughly explaining how 10 000 miles ot |
reads can be built and maintained,
out of the tax money, without increase
over w.hat is now being paid.
I Matters of legislation will also he
discussed by the convention, and com
mittees appointed to assist in getting
what is wanted from the legislature
of 1916.

BREMAN REPORTED NEAR V. S.
Another Rumor Says Third Undersea
Merchantman is Sighted.

! New London, Conn., Sept. 16.—A per- '
sistent report that the German sub
' marine merchantman Breman, a siste^
ship of the Deutschland, will arrive
here this week, gained credence to-1
night by the arrival of Paul G. L.
Hilken, manager of the German Ocean
Transportation Company, which was
organized to operate the undersea
craft. Mr. Milken was accompanied
by G. Prusse who was credited with
having constructed the Deutschland
and who was a passenger on it when
that vessel arrived at Baltimore,
j Neither Mr. Hilken nor Mr. Prusse
would say tonight whether the Breman
is on her way here.

VILLA ASSAULT
WELL PLANNED
Took (IiiliiiiiluiH J*y Surprise ;in,i
Drove Out (lie < urraiiza Forres.
Villa Stayed Behind.
Chihuahua City, Sept. 16—Villa's
own troops executed a surprise attack
on Chihuahua i n the dark this m orn
ing. which, although successfully init
iated. ended in a complete victory for
the Carranza troops under Genera:
Jacinto Trevino, who received a flesh
w.ouiui in tile left forearm
At 3:30 o’clock during heavy rain
and while the people were asleep after
the festivities of two nights celebrat
ing the Mexican Independence Day,
tlie Villa forces entered the town in
two columns. One made straight for
the penitentiary where Jose Ynez Sal
azar, the rebel on trial for plotting
against the government, and politica:
prisoners, were released. Others rush
ed for the government b uildings and
national palace, d riving out the small
Carranza garrisons.
General Trevino rushed troops to
vantage points and covered the gov
ernment buildings with rifles and ma
chine guns. He then took personal
command of the artillery at Santa Ro
sa, and by a few well directed shots,
made tlie buildings untenable. The
bandits, caught under tlie double fire
fled out cf the cjty to the northwest
leaving more than a hundred dead be
hind.
The fleeing Villa followers at Nom
bre de Rios ran into the forces of
General Matias Ramos, which General
Trevine had placed there to cut off
the retreat. Ramos cont:nued the
pursuit with heavy less to the bandits.
Villa did not enter the city. The
strets around the government build
ings are strewn with dead men .and
horses, while wounded bandits contin
ue to bo brought in.
A large number of former adherents
of Villa and Orozco are among the
dead. Marcello Caraveo, once a gen
eral under Orozco, was taken prisoner,
which proves the co-operation of other
factions with Villa.
General Trevino received liis wound,
which is not serious, while directing
the fire cf the field guns. He remain
ed witli his men, however, throughout
the fight It is said' that not a single
government soldier deserted his post
during the fight.
Tlie battle lasted six hours, ending
at 9:30 a. m.

GAINS ON THE
SOMME FRONT
The “Danube Trenth” a Mile Lung, Is
Taken by British; French
Troops Advance.
German positions exceeding four
miles in length, were captured Satur
day night and Sundry by the British
and French armies in the Somme re
gion. War material and many pris- i
cners were captured. German coun- i
ter-attacks were repulsed with largs
losses to the Germans, according u> i
London. The British took a fortified I
position over a front oi a mile and
near Ccurcelette an advance of about
1,000 yards was made, and the strong
ly defended position at the Moqut. j
farm fell into their hands. South cl
the river the French pushed back the
Germans and occupied the remaindet
of Vermandovillers and Berny, ana
also captured all the ground btween
Vermandovillers and Deniecourt ana
between Denieccurt and Berny, the
gain being over a front running north
east two miles and thence east anoth
er mile. The advance of the British
apparently brings their front to with
in a scant mile of Grandcourt and the
| Albert-Bapaume railway. Grande.ri
now is being bombarded by the Brit
ish. The success of the French seem
ingly is another move of the right
flank of the entente toward the pock
eting of Peronne.
Hard fighting has been resumed
from the Pripet marsh region in Rus
sia through Galicia and up in the Car
pathian mountains Berlin and Vleu
na claim the repulse of Russian at
tacks on a front of about 12i nrle:
west cl Lutsk, in Galicia and the Car
pathians at several points. Near the
Marajowka river Berlin a emits that
the front of Archduke Charles Franc
is was pushed back by the Russians
Petrograd records an advance for the
Russians south of Brzezany, southeast
cf Lemberg, and the- capture of mere
than 3.000 Germans in fu ll ring along
the Anraiuvka river and the Pcdvys
cke Hailicz railway.
Bucharest reports the occupation of
additional towns in Transylvania. So
lia asserts that forces of the central
powers of Dobrudja are in pursuit Oi
the retreating Rumanians and Rus
sians.
Further progress for the entente al -
