Prospects are looking good tor an oil gusher near Foreman. Oil sand lias been discovered at a depth of 630 feet. If oil should prove to be in pay ing quantities at this depth, wells would be sunk at a rapid speed. There •are only a very few fields in the Un ited States that has oil at that depth. The Foreman prospect well is being financed and worked by Foreman cap ital which is proof that it is not a lease peddling proposition. Give us a few more prospect wells, and some of them will hit a gusher. The forty boys and girls that left Monday evening for Magnolia to at tend the short course, were a happy bunch. Despite the heavy rain that was falling, they left with lots of fun and noise. No doubt they will have a very profitable trip as well as a very peas ant one.

Fort Smith, July 18.—Efforts to end the “vacation” of several hundred coal ,! miners employed in the Spadra field . • was unsuccessful today, and coal oper . ators announced they woud appeal to the International organization of the miners to end the strike. At a con ■ ference of representation of both sides . the operators asked district officials ; to order the men to return to work, promising to investigate their com plaint when the men went hack. One ! district official agreed to order the men ! to return on condition that the opera tors would immediately reinstate for mer prices for supplies. This the op erators declined to do, accordng to of ■fjeieis ot' the mine workers. The “vacation” has been in prog ress for 10 davs and miners say it i3 due to the operators’ charging exces sive prices for supplies that were not , covered in the recent bituminous coal investigation bv President Wilson’s '• commission, and t.hev sa.v the prices are to be regulated by an agreement •nr.de by the onerators in 1917 when a similar grievance caused a strike in the field. At that time the joint board of miners and operators refus ed to decide the case on the ground that the board had no jurisdiction. It was referred back to thrt local anions for settlement, and an agreement was reached. This agreement, the miners sav, has been recently violated by the operators’ Increasing the*'* -prices for supplies with the result that the min ers went on “vacation.” EFFIE LEX A McGJtAW, Richmond, July 19.— (Special)—On November 26, 1918, God gave to Mr. and Mrs. W, P. McGraw Jr. a beauti ful baby girl, christened Effie Lena McGraw. She was of a sweet, happy, disposition and soon won her way into the hearts of every one with whom she came in contact. O, how we loved her, and how hard to let her go. Yet illness came to this dear little girl and although parents, friends and physic ians gave her the best skill andi at tention. Although love fought for the little life, and though our hearts were breakinug, we had to give her back to the wonderful God, who gave her July 14, 1920. She was sick only two weeks but O, how she suffered, Now, she is beyond all pain, what a cheering that to loved ones to know that the dear little one is now safe in the arms of Jesus, where pain and death can never come. Effle Lena was buried on July 15th at 9 a. m. in the family plot in Rich mond cemetery. The services were conducted by Rev. Rowland of Horatio, a former pastor at the family residence and quite a number of relatives and friends of Mr. and Mrs. McGraw, came from Ashdown to attend the burial. The floral offerings were I beautiful, but not. more so than the little form in the little white casket, Little Effle Lena leaves only one siser, Nanette besides her parents and i other relatives, besides a host of trends. To the sorrowing parents and rela tives. we extend our deepest heart felt sympathy. How much richer their lives have been because of this dear little life which was lent for so ! short a time. And how much we must ; look for comfort.

Only a few years ago it was impossible for the court to finish the business of try ing criminals in the two weeks time allotted to them. The time is nearing when court will b a very rare occas ion. One of the causes of this is pro hibition. Take away the whiskey and ! we have fewer courts and better citi zens. After a long rest the baseball boys have again taken on a game. The boys needi the support of the business men of the town, and without that they can not do justice to the national past time. The rain that fell Monday afternoon was a heavy one, and will be a great benefit to the corn and hay crops, but many are beginning wonder when It will quit. Too much rain will start the boll weevil to working, The weevil has not damaged cotton to any great extent this year. With the proper weather condition. Little River county will have a good crop despite the late spring and heavy rains. ! -AGR1CULTURA COOPERATIVE MARKETING MEANS BETTER PRODUCTION. I r The increased' price, or the larger net returns from the cooperative mar keting of farm products has been given undue prominence. No doubt better prices have been received and these may have been and probably were amply sufficint to make the ef forts profitable, but the Indirect re i suits are even more valuable. I Better marketing and especially co ! operative marketing Is the greatest aid to better production. When a pro duct from several farms Is pooled or marketed collectively, the quality of the individual farmer’s product and the specific defects which it may have are brought to the attention of the producer in the most forceful way possible. He suffers a reduction in price, and the fact that his neighbors receive a better price on the same market and under identical conditions drives home the lesson/ that the qual ity and condition of a product deter ' mine largely its market value. When | he markets his product separately he may excuse or explain a lower price on the ground that the market was off the day he sold, or that some prejudice or combination was responsible for his failue to get as much as received by a neighbor, but if his product is marketed along with that of his neigh bor by the s^ie person and under id entical market conditions and brings a lower price, and this Is repeated' a few times the lessen is surely driven home that the quality or condition of the product is responsible for the diff erence in price received. This effect surely comes and is driven home with force no matter where the grading is done. Collective marketing is the one sure and effective means of securing the production of better products and the putting of them in the best condi tion to mee market demands.^. - But perhaps a still more important result of community or cooperative marketing is the force which it ex erts toward securing uniformity in va riety and kind of products. The statement is often made that it is of great value to any community to produce the same variety of kind of product and in large quantity. For instance, a half dozen men pool their cotton crops, The fifty bales are marketed together, but of course each bale is sold on its own merits. There may be one bale that at persent would bring seventy-five cents or one dollar a pound and others that would bring thirty cents, forty cents, and -sixty cents a pound. The man who sells the bale for thirty cents is much more likely to look into the reasons why his neighbor’s bale brought seventy five cents or one dollar a pound, sep arately for thirty cents and heard that his neighbor got one dollar a pound. He learns that there is a defference in the cotton besides its color and free dom from dirt, ana the length and quality of staple play a part. The re sult is that he is lekely to try the var iety which brings the much better price for his neighbor, and this co operative or collective marketing in a short time is likely to lead to the cem munity’s arriving at a conclusion as to what are the best varieties to grow on their sous and in their section. The advantages to the farmers in a community or county growing similar varieties of cotton, corn and other crops, raising the same breeds of live stock, and in putting their products on the market in unform condition and quality and those who have not learn ed the lesson in the way which col lective marketing surely teaches it. These lessons of the value of unfor inity, quality and quantity in the pro ducts market^! are worth much more to the farmers of the South than any increase in price which they will re ceive through cooperative marketing, even though we admit the fact that the direct increase in price alone is suffi cient to make such marketing desir able—The Progressive Farmer, -o VEKA CRUZ ISOLATED Striking Hallway Mechanics Removing Railway Lines.

Every time you cool your evaporator it darkens the syrup. As good a juice strainer as you can find is crabgrass packed in the bottom of the barrel; use a burlap sack over the barrel. The barrel should be emptied at least once a day. Hut the most important idea is to skim your juice thoroughly, When ready to drain from pan, have a good strainer. I use a flour sifter. As a last idea I planted three-fourths of an acre th<j 27th of last June. In October. I made 189 gallons and lost some can on account of the extremely v o;, fall. I sold it easily at $1.50.
