LITTLE RIVER NEWS
SEMI-WEEKLY ___ Per Year, $1.50, In Advance. Published Wednesdays and Saturdays. GRAVES & GRAVES, Editors. Entered to poatoffice at Ashdown. Arkansas, as second class mail matter We are giving quite a little space this week on the cotton-holding pro position. Some writers think the thing to do is to hold cotton and market it slowly, while some others may differ. We are not in a proposition to see through the thing and have no ad vise to offer. Use your own judgment, but get all you can for your cotton. You are the man that spent most of the year making the cotton, and it has cost you a lot of time and money to do it. Think the proposition over carefully, and then do what you think is the right tiling to do about it. % The Chamber of Commence has start 3d something worth while, They are making plans to erect two hun dred homes in Hope in order to accom modate the people that would locate in that progressive city. Ashdown would do well to do like wise. We need more homes, and must have them if we ever expect to grow. Every available house and even every “hole in the wall” is now occupied, and still the people are crying for more houses. It would be well if a plan could be advanced that would cause more houses to be erected. The business section of the town is always growing, more business houses going up every year, but it seems that few think of a place to call home. The last dope we had on the clean up program, was that the ladies will put it up to you soon, and believe ys you had better clean up your grounds before they get around to you. They always put a thing over when they un dertake it. So get busy and clean your place up before the time comes. Folks, we will say that irs going to be some highway from Little River east through the bottoms in Sevier county. If only the United States Su preme Court would rush things up a little and give us a decision on our end of the road, things would then be looking great. This highway will open up a rich trade territory for the towns of this county. It will give the Ben Lomond folks a good gravel road to market, and these folks always have lots of cotton. and other products to market. The black land valley sur rounding this beautiful little Inland village is just about as rich as land Can get. School teachers of the rural schools of the county are urged to send in a weekly news letter. Let the people know what your school is doing, We will gladly print them. There is noth ing like keeping your work, and the school’s work before the public. We are all anxious to know what each community school is doing. Just elect a school reporter and tell him to send in the school dope. Next Tuesday week is election day. On that day you will vote for your president. Be there and cast your bal lot. You are a citizen and every good citizen should vote. Also you will vote on three amendments to the constitution. Read them over and then you can vote according to your own ideas. If they are good ones, vote for them, and if they are not don’t do it. Riead them over and don’t take the other fellow's word for their good or bad merits. Give the house a pew coat of paint and make Ashdown look beautiful. According to a straw vote taken by the Rexall stores of the United States, the Republicans have a little advantage over the Democratic party. But straw votes are not the ones that count. In a few days we will have a circus, and all those who failed to see the big show In a nearly city, will have a chance to feed peanuts to the ele phants. 11 -FOR- j ! | FIRE AND TORNADO H I INSURANCE 1 ; 1 SEE ’ l[ LON T. JONES SOME DAMAGE TO COTTON " | Government Reporter Says Cotton Has Been Slightly Damaged. (By Chas. F. Marvin). Little Rock, Oct. 22.—(Special) — j Light to moderate rainfall was ' re ported over the State except in some western localities where heavy rains occurred. Temperatures were unus ually high during the week, the mean being 5 degrees to 8 degrees above normal. There was considerable cloudiness, but the humidity was rath er low most of the time. Some damage occurred to cotton in the localities where the heavy rains occurred, but elsewhere the weather was very favorable for cotton. Cotton is maturing and opening rapidly, the crop being practically opened in cen\ tral and southern portions and nearly matured in the northern. Frost would do some damage in the extreme north ern portion, but none elsewhere, none reporting over one-fourth of the crop subject to damage thereby. Picking and ginning continue to progress rap idly, but marketing slowly. The weather was very favorable for gathering corn, potatoes, sweet pota toes, peanuts and apples, and these crops are being taken care of as rapid ly as possible. Rice is also being car ed for rapidly under very favorable condition. Little wheat is being sown. -o \ Notice, Notice is hereby given that the un dersigned as Administratrix of the es tate of C. B.

Wash yourself on the Inside before breakfast like you do on the outside. This is vastly more important because the skin pores do not absorb impuri ties Into the blood, causing Illness,! while the bowel pores da For every ounce of food and drink] taken Into the stomach, nearly an ounce of waste material must be carried out of the body. If this waste material is not eliminated day by day; It quickly ferments and generates poisons, gases and toxlnB which are absorbed or sucked Into the blood stream, through the lymph ducts which should suck only nourishment to sus tain the body. A splendid health measure Is to drink, before breakfast each day, a_ glass of real hot water with a tea spoonful of limestone phosphate in it, which is a harmless way to wash these poisonB, gases and toxins from the stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels; thus cleansing, sweetening and freshening the entire alimentary cpnal before putting more food Into the stomach. A quarter pound of limestone phos phate costs but very little at tbe drug etore but Is sufficient to make anyone an enthusiast on inside-bathing Men and women who are accustomed to wake up with a dull, aching head or have furred tongue, bad taste, nasty breath, sallow complexion, others who have bilious attackB, add stomach or constipation are assured of pro nounqed improvement In both health and appearance shortly.
