Is the H. C. L. coming down, has it paused in its mad flight up ward? According to reports from financial circles it Is the first visible results of the efforts of the govern ment through the agency of the fed eral system. The banking policy of the country today is to curtail credit, icall in loans of all speculative enter prises. The wholesaler, who is holding more goods than necessary to meet his legitimate requirements, holding them for still higher prices, is being i forced to place them on the marker in | order to get the money. This is im- j mediately felt and acted upon by the ! retailer, reaching th consumer. Thai sume policy is not carried out in ex- j tending rnonc-v and credits to produc rive enter) rises. L tan to farmers av • especially encouraged. The govern-) ment believes that in this way pro (iuction may be increased' and specu lation. hoarding, and like evils be i discouraged; believes thnt more -unity may be brought about in a systematic way. We may not hope to look for prices af the old time before the war ! level, The cost cf production is too high for that to ever again be possible, bet we are encouraged to hope that things may become more stable, and 1 that there may be a gradual recession j in prices rather than a continual up ward climb. Such a condition as we j have been experimenting encourage-' hoarding. Why not? The News today is in the market for every sheet of paper that it can buy and pay for. a j year's supply or even two, before the' price goes still higher. That would I be good business and for our own and I your protection. It might also be deemed good business from a selfish J standpoint for a man to buy all of any I commodity that Ife could pay for and get credit tor and hold for a still high-1 er price, and then sell it and clean-up I to begin and' do the same thing over ! again world without end. Again, why 1 not? But he has produced' nothing, lie has tiod up capital needed in legiti-1 mate business, and he has made the public pay the higher price and given him his unearned profit. This is the id- a am? plan as we understand it that the banking world has adopted. It looks sound. The legitimate business man has nothing to fear from it. the producer will be boosted as never be fore and the consumer has all to win. A grouch grouch. Don't. If the new Index bridge goes safely : through this high watei ft ought to be | about all right Toward the latter end of the week fanners were beginning to venture out into the dry places aful begin cultiva tion again. Old nature has a way of j tearing down and wn>ing out the work and fond' hopes of man in a very short time, and then old nature by the aid of man’s sweat has a way ot making j things come right again. We often I hear the expression, “Give us two ' weeks of sunshine and we will for 1 get that this thing ever happened.” j This may be going a little strong, but ! it is a fact that things would look a ] great deal better than they do now. Give us two weeks and a once over with a plow and you will discard your blue lensed glasses. You will at least hear no more of this third of a crop talk. After all, what is a hun dred' per cent crop? Did you ever see one? We never did. We have seen a lot of what might be called- good averages. How much of a crop may we hope to get yet? Well, we can contribute the maximum amount of hustle and the balance is up to the seasons. True many fine farms on Red River are under water, but only l a, small percentage are in that condi tion. And don’t forge* that these river lands have a habit of starting in with a late crop and coming strong in the end. The cotton will be shorter to be sure over the entire South. That ought to mean better prices. There is time to make a bigger hay crop, and that means more cotto-n will stay at home. It is not a time for boasting, neither is it a time for being dis couraged1 either. VOTES 12-MILL SHOOL TAX Most School Districts Vote the Limit for Better Schools. l ittle Rock, May 20.—(Special) — “It is a most hopeful sign.” said State Superintendent J. L. Bond, in com menting upon the returns that are coming from all parts of tlie state showing that there has been a great unanimity of sentiment in voting the full limit of twelve mills for school purposes. “I am delighted and pleased with the situation. Even though rates of taxation are high and conditions are abnormal, the people as a rule have shown their willingness to vote the limit for schools," For instance, Harrison reported’ H7 votes for the 12 mill tax, and four votes for the 7 mill tax. One rural district in Pulaski county voted un animously for twenty mills, and the j county clerk is puzzled to know) what j rate to certify, as twelve mills is the . maximum under the law. —--o * Agricultural Clubs J Jones Club Meets. .Tones.

DAVIS, Millinery A FAMILY MEDICINE In Her Mother's Home, Says This Georgia Lady, Regarding Black Draught. Relief From Head ache, Malaria, Chills, Etc. Ringgold, Ga.— Mrs. Chas. Gaston, of this place, -writes: “I am a user of Thedford’s Black-Draught; in fact, it was one of our family medicines. Also in my mother’s home, when I was a child. Wien any of us child ren complained of headache, usually caused by constipation, she gave us a dose of Black-Draught, which would rectify the trouble. Often in the Spring, we would have malaria and chills, or troubles of this kind, we would take Black-Draught pretty reg ular until the liver acted well, and we would soon be up and around again. We would not be without it, for it certainly has saved us lots of doctor bills. Just a dose of Black Draught when not so well saves a lot of days in bed.” Thedford’s Black-Draught has beer In use for many years in the treat ment of stomach, liver and bowel troubles, and the popularity which it now enjoys is proof of its merit. If your liver is not doing its duty, you will suffer from such disagree- . able symptoms as headache, bilious ness, constipation, indigestion, etc., and unless something is done, serious troubfe may result. Tjiedford’s Black-Draught has been fouhd a valuable remedy for these ^roubles.
