LITTLE RIVER MEWS
SEMI-WEEKLY Per Tear, In Advance. Published Wednesdays and Saturday*. GRAVES & GRAVES, Editors. Entered to poetolflce at Ashdown. Arkansas, as second class mall matter Cotton does not seem to be the only thin* that is selling on the low mar ket. Corn and other grain crops have dropped several points in the markets. Even dry goods :■ nd groceries are com- 1 down by small margins. Financial ex perts claim that every commodity will be cheaper during the next twelve months, and that this is only the be ginning of the great reductions. Tlie lest room which will be a fea ture in the Farm Bureau offices on Main street, is something that every town needs. This will give the women of the surrounding country a place where they may go and reft while in town shopping and attending to busi ness This city has long needed this pla for their women. During the cold winter days lady visitors of the town have no place to go and reft and get “thawed out" after a hard drive over the bad roads, and it is hoped that they will enjoy the comforts of j this place. There is no doubt of it i not being ell equipped, and a hearty welcome given every one. because the rest room will be supervised by the congenial county farm economics in structor, Miss Gladys Norwood, who is an expert when it comes to provid ing for the people whom she serves. Some one makes the report that the ducks are beginning to “quack” on the lakes, Several weeks yet before the season for hunting ducks will be •pen. Dynamiters of cattle dipping vats in Miller county are now seeing the re sults of their work. In the section where the vats were dynamited last year cattle is dying of tick fever. Very few vats have been destroyed in this county, still money was not approp riated for dipping this year. Quorum Court meets again in October, but it is not known what their attitude to ward and appropriation will be. A number of cotton gins in Texas have been destroyed by fire, supposed t* have been the work of night riders, who think that it the cotton is not ginned now that the price will go to 40 cents. Also business houses in Ala bama towns have been warned to dose up until cotton reaches that price, and even some of them have been burned. It is strange that some fel lows think that the merchant can regulate the price of cotton, still some think that. Cotton prices are largely regulated by the grower themselves., Raise less cotton and more food and feed stuff and the price of cotton will be higher. If the world only wants twelve million bales of cotton, and that is all they need, why raise fif teen million, and sell it at the fame^ price that you could get for twelve? Ashdown folks are blessed with a good school, which is more than some of the larger cities. In many places school work is hampered for the lack of funds and equipment. The board of directors of Ashdown have always managed to keep a good school going on what money they have, and this year have one of the best corps of teachers that they have ever had. Exeryone is very optimistic of the school’s future under the present or ganization of teachers and directors. Governor Cox seems to have Mr. Harding doing quite a lot of explain ing about the League of Nations. Cotton was a few weeks late in open tag this fall, but the fields are white now, and the farmers are gathering it while it is white. The district fair at Texarkana will be held in a few weeks, and as usual Little River county will more than likely “cop" some the the cream prizes. The Little River county boys and girls’ clubs will go In for the prizes this year, and they will have some very aredltable exhibits. COTTON INSURED ANYWHERE D. H. TOMPKINS k CO. wmmmmmmmmmmmmtmmmm FREEMAN MAKES GOOD Former Ashdown Roy, Now Pastor in Kentucky, Is Appreciated. The following item from the Spring field. Ky., Sun. in regard to the Rev. John D. Freeman, formerly of thifl city, shows how much the people up there appreciate his work. “In appreciation of the splendid work of the pastor. Rev, John D. Freeman. the Springfield Baptist church has increased his salary from $1,800 to $3,000 per year, which is considered a very handsome salary for a minister in a small town, however, his services have been such that the membership preferred the increase to any possibility of their pastor accept ing any of the flattering calls he has received from larger churches.’’ John D. writes that he is having a pleasant stay at Springfield. He went to the church there two and a half half years ago and found no parson age and a $1,300 debt on their church building. Now their membership has increased 100. they have built and paid tor a $7,000 parsonage with the ex ception of $1,000, and $37,00 was pledg ed on the “Seventy-five million cam paign" and nearly $10,000 of that has been paid. He says he enjoys the News more and more since we go so many regular correspondents from over the couuty. He knows people, having taught in many places in the county. The News is glad to know that he is making a wonderful record. ' BAPTIST LADIES MEET Baptist Missionary Society Elected Officers for Another Year.

There are still some wales (Wales) since the robbing, recently, but, cheer up for our good Hunters and trailers (Traylors) and additional locks, 1 (Lockes) are sufficient to prevent any further intrusion now. | Wilton is noted for its Mills, and Ashdown for its beautiful Parks, and Its Halls, having gorgeous Drapers; ^also lovely Grounds, lots (Lotts), and tall Garners. And some attractive Woods, es.pecially the Norwood. Ash down is noted for its Steel, too; and other great Fortunes. The most val uable animal is the camel (Campbell). The principal bird is the Martin. Despite the presence of Snow and hail, (Hale) all the time—our indus trious Gardners, by means of nicely cultivated rows, (Rowe) can always supply waving Fields of Barley, and hay-slips, (Haizlips), Huckleberries (Huickleberrys) live here, throughout all the seasons too. The mott popular colors in this conn tv are White, Black, Green. Brown and Gray. The best fish is the Gill.

If so. are they stylish? There are. also several Bishops, here, and among them is a doctor. There are at least three species of tons—the Hamiltons, the Orton, the Suttons and perhaps other new tons, (Newtons). we are proud of our expert Cooks, Butlers, and Bakers, also.

Texarkana, Oct. .7—Tick fever at several points in the territory about eight miles southeast of Texarkana along the Lynn ferry road within the past week has caused a number of deaths among cattle, and stock owners, it is reported today, are on the verge of a small panic as to what stops may be taken to save their exposed stock. The district is under quarantine. Local federal officials concerned in tick eradication work have visited the locality and are making every effort to control the disease. One stock owner, it was said, ap proached a federal inspector with the question as to what might be done to save further casualties among his stock, to which he was told: “Stop dynamiting the vats and dtp your stock.’’ Dipping is the only remedy against tick fever and where it has been con sistently followed, no deaths of cattle have occurred, the inspector said.
