This county still has two embaras
sing gaps in our general highway syt-i
tern, the one leading to the Mills Ferry!
bridge on Little River, and the other
over the bottom road to index, Sevier
coumy now lias a highway completed j
from Loekesburg to ParaeJifta. The!
nwur mile strip to Ben Lomond will
shortly be built to connect with the
Mineral Springs to Mills Ferry road
now under construction. It is up to us
to close these gaps that we may get
the use of this system of roads.
The prospective new crop of oil mil
lionaires in Little River county are
already worrying about how- they are
going to spend their money.
The Ogden and Pine Prairie roads
are getting too much like Front street,
and need fixing.
The word has been passed to the
News that the sweet potato curing
house proposition is being closed up
this week, and that all will be ready
for the harvest in,the fall. It is said
that it will be a ten thousand bushel
house, but if something doesn't happen
to stop the grow-th of the potatoes
many of them are going to be too big
to sell.
Even the most hard-boiled pessimist
will now admit that crop prospects in
Little iRiver county are good.
Work is proceeding rapidly on the
big compress at this place, the instal
lation ot' the machinery being near
completion and the building' construc
tion well advanced. It will be ready
for the 11*20-21 cotton season.
The stage of the campaign has been
reached when the forecasting of the
vote is the popular pasttime. News
is coming from the various headquar
ters stating that the election is won
and all is well. It is a harmless in
dulgence. but since the silent vote
grows larger each year the election
returns will have to be counted to get
a line on the winners. The N’e vs
wouldn't attempt to guess who will get
the most votes in Ashdown for gover
nor. We know how, perhaps three or
four men have said they would vote.
New industries keep coming to Ash
down—push the door open and come

secure enterprises would accomplish

COTTON AND CORN OOOO
'
Continued Dry Heather Will Mean a
0 inn per Crop.
Little Rock, July 29.—(Special) —
Light to moderate rainfall occurred in
•nearly all portions of the Stale at some
time during the week, keeping the soil
in good condition except in the nerth
central portions where it became rath
er dry for all crops except cotton.
Temperatures were rather high, max
ima ranging from 90 degrees to 100 de
gres, but the mean was only one and
one-half degrees above normal.
Cotton made excellent progress ex
cept in some counties where the dam
age by boll weevil is becoming rather
serious. A few boll weevil were re
ported as far north as the central por
tion of the State, but no damage oc
curred except in the extreme south.
The crop continued to improve, the
condition now being reported as satis
factory to very good in most places
excellent in a few western and north
ern counties, but poor in some south
ern counties.
Corn mode very good progress, some
improvement being reported. Early
corn i= about matured, the crop being
better then was expected. Late corn
is making exec , nt prog-rot s in nearly
nil portions, but will require favorable
weather for a few weeks yet before the
crop is assured.
Other crops are in very good condi
tion in nearly all portions of the state.
Swept potatoes, truck, and melons are
very good and truck and melons are
plentiful in the market.

IT IS BAD BUSINESS
to borrow money to buy diamonds, automobiles, speculative stocks
and many other non-essentials that neither pay dividends nor in
crease your earning capacity. That policy will put your name in
the “society column’’—also in the Sheriff’s foreeclosure column—of
the newspapers.
It Is Good Business
to borrow money to pay off a vendor's lien or other incumbrancft
bearing a high rate of interest; to clear land, stock the farm, im
prove tb"‘ home and increase the productiveness and desirability of
your holdings, or to make investments that are sound and profitable.
A mortgage for such purposes is neither dangerous nor dishonorable.
The biggest part of the world's business is done on the credit. If
you want to put some money to work for you, see,

Smead
Powell
for
Governor
1 o th< peonh ' isau, Smead Powell is the b aeon light
in:'t i to lead th m '.hroaeh the fog of political disturbance to a
i>a\ t! of prosperity, p&aci- nd freedom from the burdensome yoke
of oxctvsivec taxation.
Refusing to see the issues beclouded, despite the efforts of
shrewd politicians, the vet r< of Arkansas have kept continually
before them the knowledge that the election of Sinead Pow«U means
the dea.ii fcneli of |m>:IticuI coterie which has burdened them with ex
pensive taxation through road district legislation. and desiring a re
turn to safe and s tie policies of government, they will roii up a mas
jerify for Sinead i’oweil never before equally in, a aubernationa!
contest.
SMEAD POWELL IS FIGHTING THE CHAMPIONS OF CON
FISCATORY TAXATION AND THE SPECIAL PRIVILEGE POLI
TICIANS. These men, grasping at straws, undertake to invent a
mythical "ring" for Smead Powell. The people are the "Ring" sup
porting Smead Powell, and the People will elect him. Wh m elected
he will support the will of the people, not the will of the politician
who has waxed fat off of them.
The shifting of support among the Opposition now make it clear
that a vote against Powell is a vote for the Highway Department and
its desperate following.

FALSE CHARGES REFUTED
. —by—
WiiJiam B. Owen, Candidate for Commissioner of
State Lands, Highways and Improvements.
The Pace-Davis political machine in Little Rock, through its
candidates Powell and Wilson, charges that I have “given away more
than 300 auto licenses.' This is a deliberate mis-statement. I have
never given away a single license. It is known by everybody that
Federal, State and County and City property is exempt from taxation.
Whenever application is made for auto tags by proper officers, they
tire furnished with the following blank affidavit:
.automobile
.is iu .he excessive
. of the city
of the State of Arkansas. .
This is to certify that..
Motor No. Factory Xo.
service of the County of . ..
of.;..
and is entitled to a tag without license.
This car is used by Mr.
i
i
of
Arka lisas.
1 County Judge or Mayor.
Sworn to before me this. day of .192. ..
Notary Public.
When this is returned filled out and sworn to by the proper offi
cial, we furnish tags “not licenses" for such vehicles. Our records
show' to whom these tags were given. Do you think that if I were
violating the law, I would make a public record of it? Certainly not.
The Ring Attempts To Control The State.
I charged in my opening speech that the Pace-Davis-Powell
ring was trying to get control of the state government by electing
Powell Governor, and H. R, Wilson Commissioner of State Lands,
Highways and Improvements. As proof of this allegation, I now
submit the following statement of Tom J. Terrall, Secretary of State,
candidate for governor, published in the Arbansas Democrat July
16, 1920:
“Frank Pace offered to pay all the expense T had incurred in
my race for governor, and to finance my race for Commissioner of
State Lands, Highways and Improvements, if I would withdraw from
the governor’s race and enter that race.” Hq also stated that he
would take Herbeit Wilson out of the race for Commissioner.”
Who is running Wilson's campaign anyway? This Is the same
\\ ilson, who is chairman of the Corporation Commission, which
Stuttgart and more than forty other cities and towns petitioned the
legislaure to abolish, this is also the same Herbert Wilson who was
defeated for a serond term as Circuit Clerk of Hempstead County.
Wonder why? Ask his home people.
I»0 NOT BE MISLED BY ELEVENTH HOI’R FALSEHOODS.
Your support will be appreciated by,
W. B. 0 W E N,
I andidate for Commissioner of Stale
Lands, Highways and Improvements.
