You can't change first principles in business any more than you can violate nature's laws and get : away with it. A six hour day and un heard of wages looks fine for the fel lows who expect to benefit by it, but is it? Farmers have to work fron sun to sun. Their business can tie . done in no other way. If factori is and public works adopt the six hour sys tem farm labor and finally the farmers themselves would drift, to it. Oi 1 course the world would starv ■ to d< nth but what's the odds so long as this golden dream of the walking delegate . and agitator come true. This mons trous doctrine was borrowed from -Russia, where under it hundreds of thousands are perishing Some of our farmers have hit upon a ! plan to save those potatoes inclining to rot. They feed them to the pigs Cull them frequently, save the good ones. Cultivate your taste for sorghum molasses. According to our notion it has the fntchedon kind skinned a mile. It will also satisfy your craving, for sugar, and while you may not prefer it to tha,t scanty staple, you will not be any less fat for using it. If the balance of the world insists on going slant crazy, encouraging high and still higher prices, why. let's us folks here in Little Liver county get busy and grow every possible thing to feed man and beast, and especially those de pendent upon us. And don’t forget to put in a natch of sorghum. What in thunder do we want with an all money crop? We can't eat it..» The Baptists this week closed up that little matter about the new building.

Old Of Jdabel says he will tell you how to reduce the high cost of Bring if you will tell him how to live without eating. Our club girls were also tit the fair. We'll say they were.

The staffer has neither a belt or chain on it. The motor is connected by gears to the tly-wheel and be generator is con nected to the timing gear. This doing away with chains eliminates one of the weak points and the source of a great ileal of trouble on other starters.

LINDSAY BROS. “The Right Place” Ashdown, Arkansas riik si*i;< i lativk ( t: \ A dangerou - speculative craze is sweeping the country. Profit being reaped from gullible “investors” re semble the promoters' harvest of 1899 1900. The public is losing $500,000,000 a year in wildcat investments. This is the estimate of Houston Thompson, federal trade commissioner. Watch your step, that your savings are not washed away hv the tidal wave of speculation. Money comes hard and goes easily. The stock market is no game for amateurs. Great fortunes are being made in ventures such as Texas oil. but great er fortunes at being lost. A promoter rarely offers fabulous returns except to blind you to the ha zards involved in the investment. Play safe. Hang onto your Liberty Bonds.

A national blue-sky law to protect uninformed investors against fake stock issues is needed now as never before. Stock promotions ordinarily | are national operations and should be! covered by a national law. Fortunately the House Judiciary Committee is framing a naional blue; sky law. It should be passed quickly. In the meantime, the average man should remember that get-rich quick propositions usually have in their wake a long line of get-poor-quick victims..-Oklahoma City News. We don't know how many millions of dollars have been paid out the past year by Arkansas pi ouie for stocks i offering such alluring chances of great i and sudden wealth, but it is safe to say that dividends will never pay back a !i nth part of ihe whole amount in-; vested.
