An article n this issue by a local
cotton man culls our attention to the
anteriority of the cotton seed grown
•this ydttr for next year's planting.
This is a matter that cannot be look
*ed into too closely, for it is a fact that
?Lho quality of esse seed has not only
sto do.with the stand, hut the yield and

ward 7 T lere are widows and orphans
in this'town that are in the direst of
poverty. There are children without
dothes. shoes cr books that ought to
be in school. Some of the women
have already taken this work up.
Children are being furnished clothes,
■shoes and books and started to scnoot.
This is a practical Christianity. A
place will be found to store all surplus
■clothes of all kinds that may be donat
ed, and when the occasion, arises at
•nay time committees will place them
where they are needed. Plans are
not fully perfected, but they are under
way of development. There are and
will be those less fortunate than oth
ers for reasons beyond their control
that, will suffer this winter without the
helping hand. It's a good move, it’s
the right move, and we are for it. It
may be like the preacher said, that we
have looked too far afield and laid
too little stress upon the needs of those
within,, our reach. Unless you look
for these things you never know. They
are not the kind that come to you
begging They are the kind that
would suffer in silence. It would be
to Ashdown’s discredit if any child
walks the winter ground barefooted
or remains from school for lack of
■’hooks or clothes, or that anyone suffer
•of hung?) The people have not fail
ed when they knew of a need and they
will not fail now.

No Liberty Under lied Regime, Says
Crane, Former Diplomat.
Chicago. Oct 26.—‘‘The world
needs a free and prosperous Russia,”
said Charles A. Crane, former United
States minister to China, who has
just returned from through Russia,
during which he had opportunity to
study conditions closely.
‘‘Russia at the present moment is
at its lowest ebb in both these re
spects. There is absolutely no lib
erty, The people see very little of
their families and nothing at all of
their friends. The dictators of Rus
sia have classified as counter-revolu
tionists all who did not agree with
them. By so doing they have justi
fied, in their own eyes, their most
hideous acts.
‘‘I saw a stockaded Russia, ruled
by a ruthless autocracy a land of
terror and of hunger and of starved
bodies, starved minds and starved
souls. It is a disillusioned country
in which both the peasants and the
working men have awakened from
their dream and now are aware that
their liberty and their aspirations
have been exploited.
“The terror is present all the time
and everywhere the uppermost prob
lem of the people is “how shall we
get through the next 24 hours?’
“The intellectual starvation of
Russia has been quite as severe as
the physical starvation. The nation
is imprisoned. It does not know
what other nations are doing; it does
not even know what is occurring
within its own borders.
“It is impossible for any civilized
government to have any official re
lations with Russia while the terror
ist. commission (the Cheka), contin
ues in power.”

Demonstration Methods Increase Crop
Production Far Above Average.
Little Rock, Oct. 26.—Had farm de
monstration methods in raising cotton
corn and oats been followed on every
farm in Pulaski county this last year,
the value of those three crops in the
county would have been increased by
$2,870,000, it is said in a summary of
the annual report of James W, Sar
gent, Pulaski county farm demonstra
tion agent. Mr. Sargent yesterday pre
sented the summary to E. J. Bodman,
vice president of the Union and Mer
cantile Trust Company and chairman
of the Agricultural Committtee of the
Pulaski County Quorum Court. The
report will bo presented to the Quorum
Court at its meeting today.
Mr. Sargent says that on 67,350
acres of cotton in the county, the av
erage yield was 210 pounds of lint
cotton per acre, making the total yield
for the county 14,143,500 pounds. On
the 150 acres in the county on which
demonstrations were conducted under
Mr Sargent’s supervision, the average
yjf-ld of lint cotton per acre was 413
pounds. Had the same ratio been
maintained on the total 67,350 acres
of cotton in the county, the total
yield vould hnVe been 27,815,550, an
increase of 13,672,050 pounds over the
actual yield. At 15 cents a pound, the
gain to the county, had demonstration
methods been followed on all cotton
in the county, would have been $2,
As to corn the estimate of the State
Department of Agriculture for the
county shows that the average pro
duction was 25 bushels an acre on
the 43,500 acres In the county, a total
yield of 1,087,500 bushels. The 100
acres that were cultivated pnder dem
monstration methods yielded an aver
age ot 55 bushels an acre. This ratio
for the county would have yielded a
total of 2,392,500 bushels, an increase
of 1,205,000 bushels, which at 60 cents
a bushel would have added $783,720
to the county's wealth.
There were 2,450 acres of^oats in
the county with an average yield of
22 bushels per acre, a total of 53,900
bushels. On the 104 acres cultivated,
under demonstration methods the av
erage yield was 51 bushels per acre,
which had it been maintained for
the county would have added 71,050
bushels, or $35,525 in money to the
| county's production.

With 1921 Payment.
Washington, Oct. 26.—Repeal of ^
the excess profits tax as of next
January 1 was made certain today i
with the adoption by the Senate,
without a record vote, of a provision {
in the tax revision bill providing ,
only for its collection this calendar
year. The provision is a substitute ;
for the excess profits section of the
for the excess porfits section of the
existing law.
Before accepting the original pro
vision in the bill, the Senate voted
down, 42 to 31, an amendment by ,
Senator Reed proposing that for 1921 ;
and thereafter the excess profits tax
be 20 per cent on the net income
of corporations, between 15 per cent
and 50 per cent on the invested capital,
and 40 per cent on the net income
in excess of 50 per cent. Six Repub- j
licans joined with the solid Demo- :
cratic minority in supporting this |
amendment. They were: Borah,
Johnson, Keyon, La Folletle, Nor
beck and Morris,
The Senate also voted down, 42 to
33, another amendment by Senator
Reed proposing that the excess prof
its tax be 20 per cent of the net
income in excess of 50 per cent of
the invested capital. Eight Repub
licans—Borah, Capper, Johnson^ Ken
yon, La Follette, McNary, Norbeck
and Morris—supported this amend
ment and one Democrat, Glass, op
posed it.
Rapid Work Promised.
Having disposed of the excess
profits soction of the bill the Senate
proceeded to consideration of the
corporation income tax section un
der a unanimous consent agreement
that it would dispose of tomorrow
all amendments to this section ex
cept that offered by Senator Walsh,
Democrat, Massachusetts. The Walsh
amendment proposes, in lieu of the
15 per cent income tax on corpora
tions recommended by the Finance
Committee, a graduated tax as fol
Twelve and one-half per cent on
the net income up to $100,000; 15
per cent between $100,000 and $300,
000; 20 per cent betw'een $300,000 and
$500,000, and 25 per cent on the
amount in excess of $500,000.
As a result of the unanimous con
sent agreement, the Republicans
held in abeyance their plants to force
a continuous session, and the Sen
ate adjourned at 5:30 until 11 a. m.
