SEMI-WEEKLY Per Year, $1.50, In Ad ranee. Published Wednesdays and Saturdays. GRAVES & GRAVES, Editors. Entered to poatofflee at Ashdown, Arkansas, as second class mall matter The Democatic party is not trying to raise a slush fund, but must have en ough to pay actual campaign expenses, Oonie on through with a dollar. The need is urgent. One big cotton mill has announced a cut in the price of cotton goods of one third. Why not? The price of cotton has been reduced possibly more than that. There are minority groups in the country, who in an organized way are doing all in. their powsr to overthrow our government and destroy our insti tutions and traditions. The bomb out rage in New York is an example, a shocking one. We have enough faith in the United States to believe that the day will never come when a minority group can turn aside the country’s great destiny for so much as a single day. Nothing can shake a great coun try but the corruption of its citizenship and the great mass of Americans are still four square. After we have seen what we have seen, what do you think of the man who still rolls his newly ginned bale of white cotton out into the weather? We don't want to make anybody feel bad. but if the rest of the gang were like you and me. what a peach of a town this would be. It is estimated by tne Treasury De partment that the school children in Arkansas. Kentucky and Missouri have saved and invested over two million dollars in thrift and war saving stamps. Among the things that Ashdown needs is a steam laundry. The busi- I ness that goes out of this town for laundry alone must be large, and then ! there is always numerous other towns to draw from. As an cb ect let son a certain citizen ! is said to be plotting to give the city | officials a joy ride and then make rhe j trip in high over Front street. No use, No car on earth would stand the strain, and he ddes that the dads are said to be plotting to fix that street. They are getting it while it’s white this week. It is indeed beautiful music to lis ten to the music furnished by the many steam industries of this city. It sounds good to hear the whistles of each plant sound “seven o’clock" each morning, And then some of them are timid and don’t have whistles The United Oil Mills are tuning up one of the finest plants In the South this week, and some tune next week the 1U20-21 season will be on. Section Foreman Davis, of the K. 0. S. i.-> doing some good work this weak. He and his crew are placing large tile under the crossings on Commerce and Main street, giving the water plenty of room to drain. This has caused much inconvenience in the past to pro tverty owners west of the tracks. We can't say about the high coat of living, but Mr. Ford says the high cost flivering is coining down, and it is e\W so. Many people are still clamoring lor a place to live, and it seems that all available space has been taken in Ash down. You would have no trouble in renting dozens of houses at a good rental price if they were available. The handle factory and new gin pro mise to begin operation within a short time, giving employment to many more people. Every new industry means a larger pay roll for Ashdown. A news article in a Little Rock pap er states that the M. D. and G. will pro bably resume operation within the next few weeks. They are two weeks be hind time, the road has been operating trains for most of two weeks already, Has it every occurred to you that you might take a little time and clean up the grounds around your home, and help the looks as well as the sanitation of the town? Think it over, and if you think it worth while, try it some evening after work hours. Then the exercise might do you good also. 1 REAL BARGAINS IN | FARMS I have secured options on the be llow list >of farms besides a number of others not included in this list.
