We have heard no com plaints of its insufficiency. It was a heap plenty and is naturally calculated to spoil a lot of nubbins, make a lot of hay and send the cotton on is way. Qrowers stated that while the cotton was full of bolls, blooms or squares, according to its age that the time had arrived when there must he moisture ho mature the crop. While cotton is a dry weather crop it is generally con ceded that it requires some moisture. So far the weevil has been held down reasonably well and confidence in a fair crop continues to be stimulated . That there is much interest in other states in oil development in Little Riv er county is proven I>> the fact that the News is constantly receiving let ters asking for oil news and reports from particular wells in tiie county. Some of them seem impatient because the News does not have in every issue a full report from every well. The News wishes to state that it does keep in the closest touch possible with the activities at the various wells and that all worth while development news is published. The layman has an idea that after a 'veil is started drilling is continuous until completion. Our ob servation has been that such is rarely the case. A prospect well may be months, or it may be years in drilling. Troubles come, sometimes financial, sometimes legal and generally just plain old troubles of one kind or an other. There are delays of weeks, | months and often a year or more. In j a new and unproven field it is a long ; road to an oil well and requires faith,! perseverance, money and patience. Trouble is a part of the wildcatter’s days work and patience is his middle ; name. That is what makes new fields possible. We are very sorry that we are not every week able to give you some fresh sensational oil news. Any oil man will tell you that it takes some thing more than big news headlines to make a well. Don’t get impatient with this paper, but depend upon it, when the big expected event happens the News will be right there on the job telling you, all about it. When the operators are not stalling off old man trouble and are daily making hole you are apt to find the good news of pro gress in these columns. What promised to he a dull and lisMess state campaign is now in its last days redeeming itself’ and begins o show enough of the old time pep io please the most of us. Every mail is worth going after as all the boys are getting red hot matter from all the follows in the various races. It is an exceptional candidate indeed, who cannot read the literature of his opponent and find things about him self that ho wouldn't like for his wife to know. To balance the dark side off, however, he can show by various indorsements that he is a bully good f •How after all. Entertainment for ihe voters, we should say, tn the sur face of the troubled political seas. But according to the la-.est dope, there are undercurrents at work. Now and then a periscope appears and some fellow yells, ‘submarine.’ According ;o ru mor, ne. r rumor and straight dope this and that organization has made ('tit a slate, held inside elimination contests, etcetera. Be that as i: may, it is tlm same old gam? .hat our dad dies loved so well, and thg great elim ination contest, ratification and en dorsement will taler place as schedul ed on the Sth day of August at which time every individual Dentcera> will retire to a little booth and make out his o"n slate, ratify his own choice and endorse the whole list with his signature a- the bottom of the ticket. And that’s what counts. OIL NEWS Actual Drilling' Operation* Tem porarily Suspended. Foreman, July 27.—Actual drilling operations at the Ludlow test are temporarily suspended due to the storage ponds being pumped dry. Messrs. Frauenfelder and Amend have a crew of men laying water pipe to Flat creek, about two miles distant, and when this is completed they hope to have the water problem solved until the hole is completed. For the last two days these gentlement have scoured the surrounding country and towns in search of pipe with which to erect this line, and have it com pleted within about half a mile of the water. The hole stands in good shaps a round 1100 feet. The drillers have been working very carefully, testing the different stratas as they uncover them, hoping that* each as it is found will be the one they are looking for. Political News From The Sxate Capital Hj Oio Harper. Little Rock, July HI —The condi tion of apathy and indifference which prevailed In the early part of the campaign was succeeded in the last 30 days by enough excitement to sat isfy even the old time politicians. Where the stream had moved along with a serene placidity that promis ed not even a thrill, it ran upon the rocks in the rapids during the past two weeks and now there is nothing but turmoil and strife complicated with charges and countercharges, bit ter invective, crimination and recri mination, accusations and denials and a pitiless exposure of personal and political pasts. It was a spirit less get-away, but it is proving a very spirited finish. The state campaign was complicat ed at the eleventh hour by one of the most remarkable swarinings of dark horses that had ever been known in the political paddock of Arkansas. For at least half a dozen offices, hith erto unannounced candidates appear ed in instances due to sinister poli tical motives; that they were brought about by private quarrels among the candidates. Charges have been made of collusion, but these have been sev erally and consecutively denied by those involved. Of all the dark horses entered at the eleventh hour, Roy Leonard of Dardanelle, for Commis sioner of Highways, is the only one who it appears will continue in the race to the end. Secretary of State Hopper and State Auditor Tucker are left unopposed. The hotest contest is being waged over an office which has hitherto been kept free from the maelstrom of per sonal politics, that of Superintendent of Public Instruction. A. B. Hill, ac knowledged to be the candidate of the teachers of 'he state, is being op posed by J. G. Cubage, a former teacher and now proprietor of a print ing establishment at ElDorado. Con siderable biterness has developed in this tight. There is also an increasing interest in the races for Commissioner of Ag riculture and State Treasurer. The unusual incident of a second Jim Fer guson entering the race against the present Commissioner who is seeking reelection occupied the political spot light for several days until lie was pulled down by the chairman of the ’Democratic State Central Committee who asserted: his opinion that the dark horse who had entered with the same name as the man now holding the office was ndt a bona fjde candi date. Xo effort was made to overrule the action of the State Chairman and Jim G. Ferguson of Searcy county is the only Jim Ferguson whose name will appear upon the ballot August Sth. There is also developing an in creasing interest in the race for gov ernor. This is unusual where an offi cer is seeking the nomination for a second term. Governor McRae, in his first real campaign speeches, de livered last week at Greebrier and Mayflower, opened up his batteries upon his opponent, Judge E. P. Toney of Lake Village, and charged that Judge Toney is the candidate of the old “Penitentiary Ring.” The gover nor at great length and at times with considerable vehemence reviews and justifies his various policies in the ad ininistraiion of state affairs, and shows that the state has been con ducted upon lines of sane economy that have insured its continuance up on a cash basis and a retirement of indebtedness inherited from the pre vious administration without an in crease in taxation. The excessively high temperatures that have prevailed in the state are being reflected in state, district and county campaigns and in some local ities, especially in Little Rock where the organization is reputed to lie very strong, the conditions are being com plicated by the activities of the Ku Klux Klan. The public press, ap parently relying for information upon tiie treacherous revelations of trait ors in the camp, presumes to give re ports of proceedings of the Little Rock Klan. From these reports it appears that the Klan is endorsing a ticket and will endeavor to elect its candidates at the August primaries. Methodists Win Another. The Methodists won another Thurs day afternoon in a very pretty game Avith the Bretheren by a score of 3 to 1. Brannon for the Methodists and Wal drop for the Bretheren were the box meri. Both the pitchers did well. Two of the runs made off Waldrop were due to errors by his team. Counting earned runs the score would have been 1 and 1. 6 6 6 i Cures Malaria, Chills and Fever, Dengue or Bilious Fever.

The World’s Greatest Baking Powder WEATHER IS FAVORABLE Jlost Sections of Cotton Belt Report Rood Progress for Week. Washington. July 26.—Most sections of the cotton belt experienced another favorable week in the period ending yesterday, the Weather Bureau an nounced today. Unseasonably warm and dry weather prevailed in the western sections of the belt, but else where temperatures were moderate and the greater part ot the interior districts received light to moderate showers, only certain Atlantic coast sections suffering from too much mois ture. Eastern sections of the Carolinas, including large producing areas in North Carolina were hit by excessive rains, but elsewhere in the two states good progress was reported. Several interior counties in Georgia also re ported too much rain, but good pro gress was reported generally with the crop fruiting well, though consider able shedding was noted. Improve ment was shown in Alabama, where despite their smallness the plants were fruiting nicely. Except In the northeastern section of Arkansas, very good progress was [reported in that, state, Mississippi and Tennessee, while conditions were fair ly favorable in Louisiana. Late planted cotton in Texas and I the crop in western Oklahoma were suffering from dry weather, though general progress in Texas was de clared very good and Oklahoma fair, though sheding was reported in those states and in some east gulf sections. Weevil in the eastern section was checked by the warm dry weather, hut the pest was causing considerable damage in much of the south central and eastern parts of Oklahoma. The cloudy rainy weather in the more eastern sections of the belt, however, favored the weevil, and they were re ported numerous and destructive in Georgia, increasing rapidly in east ern South Carolina and becoming more numerous In North Carolina. ---o Notice of Master’s Sale of (he Property of the Memphis, Dallas & Gulf Pail roail Company.
