Why couldn't they have given hs a week to prepare for the long drouth? How do you ex pect us to taper off? Oit water? There is not much hope from bootleggers, because under the, present law the practice is dangerous. You can't ship it in; you can't go put and bring it in. The outlook is indeed gloomy. We have discussed ways and means with some of our friends who will miss the morning's morning most, and there doesn't seem a ray of hope anywhere. As we see it now, we are simply go ing to have to quit, do without, as it were. Think of it. True we will have more to spend on our families more to put in the bank, but what of that. Our heart bleeds for the mail order booze houses. How they must suffer. Nat a djrop. not a drop, dry, bone dry. The most encouraging sign that has been given to those who hope and have long hoped for a more prosper, ous Little River county was given Monday when the Profitable Farming Campaigners met with record crowds of interested listeners all over the county. Not only were the farmers interested, but the merchants and bankers, who are assisting in bring ing about more profitable farm methods. N'o class can rise from old conditions without the co-operation of every cither class. We are stand:ng together in this county. We are head ing for better things all along the line. It will not be done in a day, but we have started on .the way. For fifty years we have been growing cotton to make other states rich further north; now we have decided to grow cotton to make Arkansas rich. We can grow most of the things that we have been growing cotton to buy. We are arranging to change all that and put cotton money in the bank. Sevier county will let the contract for 27 miles of modern highway on February 1st. This highway will reach from Greenwood Shoals on Lit tle River to the Polk county line on the north. Little River county ex pects to continue the road through this county by way of Foreman and to Ashdown, making a long continuous stretch of road through the two coun ties. A bill is pending in the legisla ture, already passed1 the house, for the building of a bridge over Red .River at Index. When this is done and Miller county has builit to it from Texarkana it will be a link in the trunk line. There is a move in Oklahoma to build an east and west line through that state into Arkansas. They are head ing to Ashdown. The next meeting of that association will be held here. We are right in the center of big things. We must not let any of them get by us. The year 1917 is said to be a dan ger year with the Southern farmer. There is never any danger when you play it safe. You are in better posi tion now. to play it safe than ever. Tom Watson seed have been dis tributed for the planting of 47 acres of watermelons in the immediate vi cinity of Ashdown. They are going in for cantalopes and other spring and summer craps at every station in the county. Looks like it would be a busy summer. ( RIME IN LITTLE RIVER COUNTY. A sudden outbreak of crime in Little River county during the recent past gave that county advertising that some patriotic citizens may have considered undesirable, but the energy with which the officers and the courts took hold of the situation more than coun terbalanced any bad effect the crimes might have produced. Discussing the matter the Little River News says: “The people of Little River county do not feel dismayed, neither do, they feel dishonored in reviewing the long record of convictions by our recent court. Rather we have cause for con gratulations that the law has proven ample and supreme to avenge itself upon the guilty.” The_ Little River News takes the proper stand. There are people who desire to cover up such things in the mistaken belief that publicity at such times is hurtful. One cannot but think that these people would advocate se crecy as a treatment for cancer, cover, ing the cancer and not allowing a doc tor to see It for fear he might tell about it. Little River county has cleaned' out her criminals and gained j a reputation for the prompt enforce ment of the law, a reputation by the 1 way which many counties of Arkansas and other states lack.—Arkansas Ga zette. A HORRIBLE CRIME. Three yocng men were tried in Ash down last week, and given life sen tences on charges o£ assaulting two negro girls. It is assumed there were no errors in the trial and the men are guilty. And it is safe to assume this is true, because the preponderance of senti ment must have been on their side. It would be hard for a jury of white men to find; them guilty if they were not guilty. If the white men had been negroes and the girls had been white girls there never would have been any trial, and perhaps there should not have been any trial. But the crime is no less shocking, because the girls were black and the perpetrators white. Looked! at in any way it is revolting, and the jury that gave the men life's sentences did the right thing. It has too often been the case that such crimes under circumstances have been hushed up, when if the status of the victim and the criminals has been reversed they would have been sure of owift punishment. It speaks well for the country, that we can condemn men of our own race quite as lreely as those of an alien race for the same crime, and our friends at the north, cannot say that we punish negroes for the commission of crimes that we wink at when per petuated by a white man.—The Arkan sas News. _.n-— WINTHROP NEWS.

J. Attaway Died Tuesday. Julia Attaway was the younger dau ghter of Mr. and Mrs. Moses Attaway. She was born July the 15th, 1910, and died January 23rd, 1917. The body -"'.as carried back to Ben Lomond, and was buriedt there Wed nesday afternoon, January 24th, at 2 p. m. Quite a large number of friends and relatives attended the funeral service. This service was conducted by J. E. Brown of Ashdown. Julia was a litTe girl who was lqved by all who knew her. She was loved because she was lovable. Her think ing and] disposition was that of a girl who was older in years than she. Her parents moved from Ben Lomond to Ashdown about the first of December, 1916. About one week after they mov ed, Julia contracted pneumonia. This caused an abscess to develop on hei lungs. After some weeks of severe suffering, djeath came to her relief. The patience and cheerfulness mani fested during her illness was remark able for a child of her age. She made a brave fight for life, but did not fear death. As she had never been a phy sically strong child, we feel that she has been transplanted! from this un congenial clime to land of sunshine and joy, where she may be free from all that would bring suffering and sorrow, and may enjoy all the riches of Heaven. With the coming of death she has entered into the fullness of life. While her father mother, sister and other relatives and loved ones will sadly miss her, may they realize that their loss is her gam. Heaven has been made more attractive be cause of her going. May tlxe God cf love and grace, give to the bereaved ones. His comforting spirit and sus taining grace in full measure. J. E. Brown. -o RESOLCIIONS OF RESPECT To the Worshipful Master, Wardens and Brethern of Red River Lodge We, your committee appointed to draft resolutions of respect to the memory of Joseph Steadman Davis, beg leave to report the following: ;The subject of this sketch was born June 15, 1875, near what was once known as the Davis School House. He was born, reared and died at the same house. He was the son of R. S. and Lizzie Fortune Davis. He was one of nine children, seven are still living and two are dead. Steadman was married to Eugenia Cobb, June 30, 1906, to them was born one son. Joseph, who still lives. Stead man's wife died September 30, 1912. He joined the Presbyteran church in the summer of 1893, lived a cons tant Christian life the rest of his day*. He was made a Master Mason June 6, 1914, by Red River Lodge No. 1(4. Was elected S. W. in December ot the same year, and served as such to the time of his death. He died December 26,. 1916, and was buried at the Hemp hill Grave Yard) the next day. Funeral services were held at his late resi dence by Rev. W. T. Sullivan, his Pastor and the Masonic Fraternity laid him to rest at the grave with Masonic honors. He was stricken with a pain in his head and fe 1 from his horse about one month before his death, and never regained his health after that. We can adopt the language of the Psalmist David, Ps. 116:15, “Precious in the Sight of the Lord is the death of his Saints.’’ We are here distinctly assured that the death of God's saints is precious in his sight. The death of God’s saints is both the subject of God’s consideration and the object of God’s love. The dea ho/fa good man, while a great grief to his connections and triends, and considered an irreparable loss to the neighborhood in which he lived, yet tbit death in connection with the glory of God in accomplish ment of his divine purposes, the time and manner of that death being or dained of God. Tlie removal of a believer to another world is as much and as perfectly un der Gods control and loving care, as is the life of the believer here in this world. The world owes much to the d-iath cf Gods martyrs as well as the triumphal death of Goa's saints. Death is but a transition, a birth, a coronation of God’s saints. tie it resolved that in this death the community, the church, the fam ily, the Lodge has lost one of its best and! most consistant members. That a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the Minutes of the Lodge, and a copy be furnished the Little stiv er News for publication. Respectfully Submitted W. I. Joyner. J. F. Rhodes. H. A. Stoddard. -o Card of Thanks. We wish to thank the good people of Millwood for their help and sympathy during the illness and death of our be loved husband, father and grandfath er.—Mrs. T. C. Hicks and family.

Influenza .JjSfL “ No one who has not had Influenza can realize the suffering it causes or how it defies treatment. I know of nothing that will give such prompt relief as Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy, for when it is taken the pain in the chest disappears, the fever sub sides and the whole body becomes more comfortable. Then again, the after effects of Influenza are often even more distressing than the disease itself, but they can be avoided if you use Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy Though the greatest danger from this disease is Pneumonia, I have never known a single case of Influenza to result in it when Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy was freely given. The persistent cough that frequently follows Influenza can be relieved by Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy, and should not be allowed to run on until it becomes troublesome.” £n* 7JtaItL COLLECTOR’S NOTICE I will be at the several voting precincts in the county for the purpose of collecting both real and personal taxes for the year 1916, at the time and place mentioned below: Johnson township, Ogden.Thursday, January 25, 1917.
