Many persons, otherwise vigorous and healthy, are bothered occasionally with indigestion. The effects of a disordered stomach on the system are dangerous, and prompt treatment of indiges tion is important. “The only medicine I have needed has been something to aid diges tion and clean the liver,” writes Mr. Fred Ashby, a McKinney, Texas, farmer. “My medicine is Thedford’s for indigestion and 3tomnch trouble of any kind. 1 have never found anything that loaches the spot, like Black Din' ht. 1 take it in broken 1 after meals. For a long time 1 tried pills, which grip ! and didn't give the good results. Black-Draught liver . divine is easy to take, easy to k ■ p, inexpensive.” Hi ■ a package from your druggist today—Ask for and •arise u;>on Thedford’s—the i.y genuine. •rti it today. , fi 84 n .. i Hot Water for Sick Headaches Tells why everyone should drink hot water with phosphate in it before breakfast. Headache of any kind, is caused by autointoxication—which means self poisoning. Liver and bowel poisons called toxins, sucked into the blood, through the lymph ducts, excite the heart which pumps the blood so fast that it congests in the smaller arteries and veins of the head producing vio lent, throbbing pain and distress, called headache. You become nervous, de spondent, sick, feverish and miserable, your meals sour and almost nauseate you. Then you resort to acetanilide, aspirin or the bromides which tempor 'arily relieve but do not rid the blood of ithese irritating toxins. A glass of hot -water with a teaspoon ful of limestone phosphate in it, drank .before breakfast for awhile, will not only wash these poisons from your sys tem and cure you of headache but will cleanse, purify and freshen the entire alimentary canal. Ask your pharmacist for a quarter pound of limestone phosphate. It is in expensive, harmless as sugar, and al most tasteless, except for a sourish twinge which is not unpleasant. ■If you aren’t feeling your best, if tongue is coated or you wake up with bad taste, foul breath or have colds, indigestion, biliousness, constipation or sour, acid stomach, begin the phos phated hot water cure to rid your system of toxins and poisons. _tesult3 are quick and it is claimed that those who continue to flush out the stomach, liver and bowels every morning never have any headache or know a miserable moment SULPHUR St 1ES UGU.JIC 6 SKIN Th* First Application Makes Skin Codlsad Comfortable H pm am eafering from eczema or MM other torturing, euAurrassmg ■Ida trouble yon may quickly he rkl of ,5t by wing Mentho-Sulpfwr, declares ■ noted sbm syeriitist This sulphur preparation, because of its sens destroying properties, never fills 10 quickly sObdae itch ing; wen at fay eczema.

(By C. F. Marvin, Chief Reporter) Little Rock, May 5.— (Special) —j Temperatures were low during tlie on-1 tire week, especially the iirst and last days, the mean for the week being about 8 degrees below normal. Mod erate to rather heavy rains fell on soaked soil, making it so wet that it will not be possible to work it for sev eral days in some eastern portions. Practically all streams in the state overflowed, covering all lowlands, des troying all crops near the streams. Very little progress was made in planting cotton during the week, due to the weather conditions, and that which was planted made poor pro gress. Cotton which is up is not mak ing good growth and stands are re ported poor in some places. Corn planting was also "delayed by the rains and vvet soil. It is too wet in places for corn, but otherwise it is doing fairly well. The stands are rather poor in places due to being frozen down, but good elsewhere. The wea ther was very favorable for wheat, oats, meadows, pastures, potatoes, truck and fruit in most sections, but too wet and cold for berries. -o Commissioner’s Sale.

Washington, May I.—That the anti dumping provision of the emergency i a riff hill will not halt the present underselling of American products by foreign products in American markets was admitted by Senator McCumber! of North Dakota, ranking Republican] member of the Finance Committee, in j opening the debate on me measure in; the Senate today. This under-selling will continue in increasing volume until American pri ces fall and American wages are low- i ( red or until the tariff on (lie compet ing foreign products is raised. Such ] protection will be afforded agricultur- ] al products by the emergency tariff j hill and other products, it is contem- j plated, by the permanent tariff law to! be enacted several months hence. The anti-dumping section provides) an additional duty to be assessed on foreign goods dumped on American markets at prices below the home market value. It will he ineffective because no foreign goods are being dumped in America and will not be until conditions radically change. Foreign goods are not being dump ed here because it is not necessary to do so. American prices are so much high er than foreign prices that the for eign toods can be sold in the United States for more than they would have brought at home and still under sell American competitors. With the foreign goods sold here at prices no Jess than the home market value the provision of the anti-dumping sec tion will not apply to such imports. German Products Arriving. German products are reaching American markets in volume, rapidly approaching the pre-war figure, and American industries are alarmed by fears of the effort of German com petition, but the protection sought can be afforded only by the permanent tar iff legislation. ) “I think every man in the Senate realizes the condition of the indus tries throughout the United States at the present time,” said Senator Mc Cumber. “While we have recognized that industries in every lfne were suf fering from the reaction after the war, •it was well known that the agricul tural industry was suffering more than any other. While the farmers’ pro ducts had gone down from one-third to one-half in price, everything the far mer had to purchase remained at the old price. “I regret that the House saw fit to attach to what was purely an em ergency tariff proposition other pro visions relating to anti-dumping and a new method for determining values of foreign currency, thereby injecting into this discussion new propositions. “I regret that the anti-dumping provision was attached because I can see no reason for it. In all the hear ings we had before the Senate Fi nance Committee there was no show ing as to |my dumping. Certainly there is no danger of the dumping of agricultural products. There is little danger of the dumping of manufac tured articles, because prices in this country are so much higher than any where else in the world, and it is not necessary for foreign manufacturers, in order to sell their products here, to dump their goods at prices below their own. “But the committee considered it was better to take the matter as it came from the House and to make such changes as necessary without striking ‘out these provisions entire ly. I can see no harm that can come from the anti-dumping provisions even if they are of not particular use. I do not object to their inclusion for this reason. -u FIVE MIIIDEH CASES Will Be Tried This Month in District Court at Boston. Texarkana, May 4.—Five men charged with capital offenses, the pun ishment for which may be death, will he tried in the criminal district court at Boston during the month. All are white men. Three of them, Peter Lenoir, Art Williams and A. J. Braswell, are charged with criminal assault. Bras well is alleged to have attacked his stepdaughter. Henry Pruitt is charg ed with robbery with firearms in con nection with the hold-up of the Ex change bank at Nash, five miles west of here, about two months ago, and John Innis charged with murder. The latter had been constable at Maud for several'years. On last Christmas day he is alleged to have shot and killed O. L. Bussell while the latter was in toxicated. In the court yesterday afternoon Charles Hackett, a one-legged white man was convicted of violating the prohibition laws and was given a sus pended sentence of one year. NO HIGHWAY ALLOTMENT No Fed: ml Aid ior Roads To Be Made LHill Afer July 1. Little Rock, May 6.—(Special)—The Highway Commission at its monthly meeting did not make any allotments of aid whatever. There arc no federal funds to be allotted on account of the change in the fiscal year, there will be no state funds' available until after J uly 1. There are pending in the Com mission applications from 42 districts for a total of $2,000,000 in federal and state aid. The legislature has appro priated $300,000 a year for the next (wo years for State aid, but this can not be paid unless the revenues are received and it is beginning to be very questionable weather that amount will be derived from the new law which re turns 70 per cent of the automobile revenues to the counties. In 1917 Congress made an appro priation for road construction allot ing to Arkansas $4,619,000 for the five year period, which expires with this year. There are 110 active federal projects in the state ana ail the Fed eral funds have been allofed to these, the only funds available during recent months being in cases where there had been lapsed or the districts had been dissolved. All these things con sidered, it appears very uncertain as to what federal or state aid will be avail able in the future, as Congress has not made an appropriation for the new period. GOV. H'RAE SILAS PET1TIOA Bus First Signer to I’ment Further Local Legislation, Little Rock, May 6.— (Special)—Gov. Thomas C. McRae was the first one to sign the petition for the submission of a proposed amendment to the consti tution, prohibiting local or special leg islation. A total of 15,209 signatures will be necessary to initiate the amendment. Signatures are being re ceived in large numbers from all over the state and it is expected that the requisite number will be secured in a short time. This will be only the be ginning, however, of the fight, for there will be long legal complications before either of the proposed amend ments is certified out. While the sentiment in favor of the local legislation is strong in some quarters, it cannot be denied that there will be a very considerable opposition to it. The tenor of this opposition is indicated by the Booneville Democrat which argues that: “Local legislation should be restricted in some way, but we hope the promoters of the dramtic amendment proposed on second thought will realize the necessity of a change in its provisions.” The Demo crat further says that “all of us are disgusted with local laws, but if we take one minute to think, we can see that the amendment suggested to be initiated, would be most ridiculous and would be another blacir five for Arkansas.” 1 MAN IS DECAPITATED _ I Was Walking Along K. C. S. Track When Struck by Train. Mena, May 4.—While walking on the K. C. S. tracks south of Mena, yesterday an elderly man, believed to be L. J.
