LITTLE RiWER HEWS
SEMI-WEEKLY Per Year, $1.50, In Advance. —Published— Wednesdays and Saturdays GRAVES & GRAVES, Editors._ Entered the postoffice at Ashdown Arkansas, as second class mail matter The News regrets that our county judge has deemed it advisable to dis continue county demonstration, and frankly, we believe that it is a step backward. We do not have reason to believe that county finances have fal len below the average for recent years, during which time demonstration has been maintained. Granting such to be the case we still believe that the coun ty can ill afford retrenchment at this point. The work has been developed bore, growing stronger and showing more results each year. What is to become of our agricultural clubs all over the county which have been doing such excellent work? They are now Ic^derless. This and the other pro grams will suffer for lack of organiza tion. As a matter of fact the county will return to demonstration, but it will take time after a lapse of a few months to get the work back in hand. It would be remarkable if all should agree with us on this question, for there are those who have never taken any interest in agricultural advance ment through demonstration, but their number has grown less as the work has developed. The attention of the News has been called to the Ashdown cemetery with regard to a condition that should call for discussion with view to a remedy. As is well known, the facilities of the local cemetery are very limited. As a matter of fact the plot was small in the beginning, and long since all lots have been sold. Now people who come here as well as others, who have never had occasion to own a lot, are brought face to face with an embar assing situation when the inevitable time comes that there is a death in the family. Many lot holders have here tofore voluntarily divided their lots with people unable to buy space from the city, which owns the cemetery, and which itself has no more lots to sell. Ashdown has another cemetery, to be sure, but the ground is not de sirable. and no one sooms to like to use it. It has been suggested that people become interested in securing ground adjoining the present cemetery for the purpose of enlarging it. Peo ple who live here, own property here and raise their families here naturally would desire that their dead be buried here. It is a matter worthy of very serious consideration. We are strictly against the move to divide the year into thirteen months instead of twelve. It means that bill collectors will be around oftener and a whole lot of unpleasant things. Think of the people who would be knocked clean out of even a birthday. With our test wells speeding down ward it is going to keep our people mighty busy rushing from one to the other to keep up with the progress. Better play it safe and subscribe for the News. The jury acquitted the White Sox players, who were alleged to have sold out to gamblers to throw the 1919 world series, but baseball has an nounced officially that organized base ball will have nothing to do with them, and will bann them forever and ever, amen. The press reports that President Harding is spending a week’s vacation in a secluded place in the country four miles from a telephone. The presi dent has nothing’ on a whole lot of Ashdown people who are doing just that very same identical thing. Question is, how are you going to get it all in that Tittle old barn of yours? B. Y. P.

The dauble header game between tlu Presbyterians and Baptists resulted ir a draw, the Baptists winning the first and Presbyterians the second. This game was played Wednesday after noon. The games ivere only seven-in 'ning games in order that both might be played in the afternoon. Game No. one was. no doubt, the best game of the season, the score being Baptists 3, Presbyterians 2. The score stood two to one in favor of the Presby terians until the last half of the sev enth. when with two men on bases, Lott for the Baptists hit for a single bringing both men in home. In this game Ornson pitched for the Presby terians and Mobley for the Baptists. The second game resulted in a score of eight to nothing in favor of the Presbyterians. This was a good game until the last part of the game when the Presbyterians had a bit of luck 'hitting, running in the scores. This game wan pitched by Mobley for the Baptists and Russell for the Presby terians -o Games Are Uneven. To get the number of games played even the Methodists and Presbyter ians will have to play four games while the Baptists are idle, the latter having been in 18 games while the Methodists and Presbyterians have each been in 14 decision games. The Methodists wmuld have to take three of the games to tie the standing with the leaders. Four in a row would place them in the lead. Playing at Fulton. The' locals went to Fulton.

All Paris, I think, myself among the rest, assembled to see the valiant brothers, Robert and Charles, mount into the air yesterday, in com pany with a certain Pllatre de Rosier, who conducted them in the newly-in vented flying chariot fastened to an air-balloon. It was from the middle of the Tuillerl’e's that they set otit, a place very favorable and well-con trived for such public purposes. But all was so nicely'managed, so cleverly curried on, somehow, that the order and decorum of us who remained on Arm ground struck me more than even the very strange sight of human crea tures floating in the wind; but I have really been witness to ten timea as much hustle and confusion at a crowded theuter in Londo^n, than what these peaceful Parisians make when the whole city was gathered together. , . , —Mi-s.

Ferguson) i Nature gave the pig a snout and , taught him how to use it, but at the , same time nature also taught the pig | how to graze, and judging from the j picture of contentment a herd of pigs make when feeding on a luxuriant growth of alfalfa or grass, they should be classed as grazers rather than rooters. Experienced swine breeders know that pigs never grow so fast as when they have the liberty of a pas ture where there is a variety of ten der herbs and grasses. The first re quisite of a profitable hog farm is a good pasture and unless one has such it is better not to engage in hog rais ing because the venture is doomed to fail from the start. A good hog pasture is not beyond the bounds of possibility of any land owner in Arkansas. Here there is scarcely any land that does not pro duce some of the valuable pasture plants which thrive in this climate. Even the hillsides in some sections support a luxuriant growth of grasses and wild legumes which make splen did grazing not only for hogs but other kinds of livestock as well. On the so called “worn-out” land which has been in cultivation for many years and apparently depleted of its fertility, les pedeza and other pasture crops spring up after the land is left idle for two or three years. These old fields can be turned to profit by encouraging the growth of such plants for hogs and at the same time the fertility of the land 'will be restored. To establish a permanent pasture which will yield maximum grazing in the shortest possible time, requires planning and labor. And to maintain the pasture after it is established with desirable plants, careful management is required to keep down noxious weeds. Steep land, or any land as for that matter, subject to washing, should be terraced to prevent destruction of the top soil by heavy rains. After the terraces are sodded over they will not require further attention except to repair breaks. Nearly all useful grazing plants need sunlight to make vigorous growth, hence brambles and bushes which shade the ground must be cut down. There is no better time to do work than July and August. The hotter and dryer the season the easier it is to eradicate such growth. Besides the bushes which interfere with the growth of pasture plants there are numerous weeds of presist ent and vigorous growing habits that choke out the pasture unless a fight is made against them. The eradica tion of weeds is a problem which in many cases will tax the ingenuity of the land-owner. After the bushes are cut, however, the mowing machine can be used to cut the weeds two or three time during the summer before the seeds mature which will hold them in check. By keeping up this practice for three or four years prac tically all the weeds will be killed out. -o ROBINSON SAILS FOR EUROPE Leaves New York as Delegate to Inte P.irllamentarjr Union. Washington, D. C., Aug. 2.—Sena tor Robinson, a delegate to the Inter parliamentary Union, which meets in Stockholm, Sweeden, on August 17. left for New York tonight with other delegates, including Senators McKin ley of Illinois and Walsh of Mon tana, and Representatives Montague of Virginia and Brooks of Illinois.
