It is too early to make predictions further on this crop, as the next two months must tell the story. The boll weevil has made his appearance as was expected.

It was a close game, and at times looked like it may be safely add ed to the strihg of victories, but Orri son, who pitched for the locals, weak ened in one of the late innings and by the help of some poor backing allowed a two run lead by the visitors Mob ley went in the box in the ninth and heldi the visitors from further ccoring, but the locals failed to connect with the smoke dealt out by the opposing boxman. It was the Cobb family that broke into the hitting along about the seventh that caused our three runs to be over. The DeQueen pitcher had plenty of stuff, but had bad control, otherwise he should have had a shut out to his credit. It was voted a good game by the fans. Mayor J.

THOUSAND GASSERS DEVELOPS IN UNION When Constantine is Capped Minature Wells Spring I p Everywhere, on M*‘n Son-Pulsed. El Dorado, June 6.—More than 1, 000 minature gas wells developed last night and today l'rom the Con stantine gasser. two miles from El Do rado, which since April 22 has been roaring like a huge valcano, and shoot ing up oil, gas, mud and water about 100 feet into the air. Other small gassers are formingjiourly. The min iature wells are spr^id all over a radius of about a quarter mile of the Constantine. The small geysers were caused by the capping of the Constantine, it is believed, The Constantine was cap ped yesterday morning. However, when the big well is permitted to flow, it does not effect the smaller gassers. A large crater developed this aft ernoon about a quarter mile from the Constantine. It is about 2 feet in diameter. Mud, sand, water and gas shoot up from 5 to 10 feet. When the crater first formed, it was said the mud and sand shot 30 feet upward. A large mound of mud and sand has f’ormei^ around the crater, giving the appearance of a volcano. Oil men who have seen the phe nomenon are nonpulsed, They say they have never seen anything like it be fore. However, they say it is a strong indication that there is an unusual amount of gas in the, vicinity. It is the general belief that a huge lake will be formed as a result of the many imitators ot thes Constantine. Persons living in the immediate vi cinity of the Constantine are moving their household goods to a “safer clime.” With, new nnnature wells de veloping every few minutes, it is im possible to foretell where the next one will spring up. There is hardly a “crawlish. hole” within a quarter mile radius of the Constantine that has not been converted into a small gas ser Ti|fe area probably will enlarge considerably within the next few days officials of the Constantine inter ests who have visited the phenome non have not announced what will be their next move, They appear to l>° about as much puzzled as others who have witnessed the unusual sight. -o Educational Board Met and Organized Last Saturday The members of the recently elected Little River County Board of Educat ion met at the court house Saturday and took oath of office.

CONGRESS HAS CLOSED THE SUMMER SESSION Adjourns in Kush of Work and Solons Flee Washington; Record Roundly Flayed. Washington, June 5.—While Con gress was winding up it affairs to day and taking adjournment at 4 o’clock, President Wilson was covet ing almost his entire time to signing bills Some measures enacted, how ever, were not reached by him befoie the hour of adjournment, and auto matically died under the law prohib iting the executive from passing on legislation while Congress is not in session. The exodus of senators and repre sentatives began almost immediately after adjournment. Many Republic ans or both houses are heading for Chicago to attend their party conven tion there. Some of the Democratic members also will attend that conven tion. The House was in a restless mood today, and efforts of many members to have taken up special hills failed.

Several laws were cited by Mr. Mon dell as “constituting a record, unequal ed in American history.” He included the transportation act, the woman suf frage amendment, the merchant marine bill, the mineral land leasing bill, the water power act, the civil service re tirement measure, the Volstead prohib ition enforcement law, the extension of the wartime food control act to punish profiteers, the repeal of practically all way laws, and other measures. “Take it all in all. the record, of Congress is one of which every mem ber may well be proud,” he declared “It is a record that commands the Congress to the favorable jupdgment of the American people." Referring to the Republican applause which followed Mr. Mondell’s speech, Mr. Garrett said the Republican lead er had spoken, " to the only audience in the United States where his speech could receive applause.” -o MARRIED SUNDAY _ Earl Wafers of DeQueen and Miss Dora Mangum of This City Wed.
