Chewn ing farmi when Mr. Chewning harvest ed 1,000 bushels from the twenty acres, an average of 50 bushels per acre. That in itself was a profitable year’® crop, but that is not all. Sat urday Mr. Chewning told the News that he had followed the oats with stock peas and has now just finish ed harvesting 10 tons of good hay from, the plot. His land is better than it was before. The stubble was turn ed under to plant the peas and now the pea stubble will be turned under. During the growth of the peas natur ally a fine lot of nitrogen was taken from the air and stored in the soil. Mr. Chewning manufactures his own fertilizer by this method. He has 200 acres of upland in cultivation, always ha® corn, oats or hay to sell above that hc needs to run his farm. He also made 0 bales of cotton this year, lie has the right system, and even the News couldn’t tell him of a better one, though no doubt he is still finding out ways to improve his farming out off his own experience.

It was far arkana had no offensive which they could depend upon to make gains and opened the game by punting out of danger on their first down. Their defensive work was splendid, their tackling forie, and only airtight in terference could get by them. Tex arkana had four substitutes and used them all and could have used more to replace casualties. Ashdown also used subs for the same purpose. The touchdowns were made in the order of Cobb, Bowden, Tiffin, Bow den, Bowden. Bowles, Tiffin. Bowles received a forward pass on Texarkana's three yard line and fell over for a touchdown. One touchdown was made in the first quarter, three in the second, one in the third and two in the fourth. The entire backfield starred. The Ash down line was not up to its best, pro bably for lack of sufficient opposition to furnish inspiration, and frequently the backfield made its own openings, in plowing through the line. ■ -o FOR ERADICATION Miller Qnormn Court Also Appropri ates; $1,000 for Demonstration Work.

Several hundred people attended the tractor demonstration on the Hemp hill farnu Satuday. All day long peo ple went to the farm to see the iron horse at work. The demonstration was On black stiff land where it would be impossible to plow at this season of the year with mules. The Fordson was pulling a double disc plow on an average of twelve inches deep, cut ting up sprouts and grubs, johnson grass and cotton stalks. The plow covered every thing, leaving the ground free to be cultivated. An other tractor was pulling a double disc and a cultipacker. This cut up all clods and pulverized the ground, leaving.it in a good condition. The Fordson carried it’s load and traveled at about, six miles per hour, never stopping or lagging behind. Jim Hemphill, the manage of the farm, stated that lie intended to break all his land with tractors, putting all grass and stalks deep under the sod. This will greatly improve the land, as green stuff turned under at this sea son of the year is better than commer cial fertilizer. Mr. McCormick, of the McCormick Motor Company, for whom the demon station was given, and also a Ford expert gave much information to the operation o f the machines. Many spectators drove the tractors, making it do many stunts. The tractor, like other improved machinery, is coming to the front, and it will be only a few years until practically all our farm ing will be done with improved ma chinery. It. has been proven that all kinds of plowing can be successfully done, even the cultivation of small corn or cotton. The Fordson can be used to pull wagons and trailers. One machine was equipped with rubber tires and it was demonstrated on the streets of Ashdown at what speed it could make. Bill Sanderson perform ed cn this tractor all day, making about fifteen miles per hour. Picture Show at Mght, Topping off the big Ford Day a pic ture show was given at the McCormick Motor Co.’s building in this city free to everybody. The large garage room had been cleared out and seats ac commodating several hundred putin. A lage screen was erected and a pic ture machine installed. Several reels Were shown, requiring .about two hours. A large crowd attended, the seats were filled and standing room all taken. Farmers were in the majority, showing their interest in im proved farm machinery. An expert lectured as the eurlie pictues were shown and throughout the show when necessary. The manufacture of the Fordson tractor was shown in all the details from the mining of the ore to its progress through the great plant until it came out a finished machine under its own power. That in itself was of great educational value. The great power farm of Mr. Ford was also showrl in another film, covering land preparation, planting, cultivation and harvesting. It would be hard to tell all of1 the duties which the Fordson performed. Then, there were educa tional films of various kinds. One was shown that belonged to the U. S. Agricultural Department and showed in motion pictures the various opera tions in poisoning the boll weevil, and the havesting of the cotton. The pic tures were not only instructive, but really entertaininf. A second show was given to accommodate the over flow crowd. The events of the day were a complete success, and the Mc Cormick Motor Company ^nd the manager, Mr, McCormick, and all the employees are to be commended upon their splendid enterprise in putting it over. -o WELL WILL BE TESTED The Marr-Johnsun, in Hot Spring County, t<> Be Cleaned Thursday.

Air. McKnight had no firearms, but he attacked the animal with stones, after hemming it up in a corner of the^Bi'd where it was trying to escape. A neighbor, G. L. Logan, came to his assistance and aided in pelting the wolf with stones until it was dead. Shortly after the animal was killed a second wolf appeared in the road a few yards away, evidently seeking its mate, but when the men g^ave chase it escaped into the woods. These are the first wolves reported in this section in many years. It is believed they came from McKinney bayou or Red river bottoms, a few miles north. Mr. AIcKnight said he had seen signs of the depredations of some strange animal near his home at intervals for more than a year, which he now feels sure to have been due to the wolves. -o FLECTION CASE SETTLED Contestant for Sheriff of Texas Conn, ty Loses Ont in Conrt.

General Survey Red Cross Nutrition Work The Ked Cross Nutrition program i in Little River county ia rapidly drawing to a close—only two more weeks of work being left. In many respects this work has been largely a survey of the health condition of the children. Sonne seri ous facts have been revealed. In Richmond where all the children 7 per cent or more under weight were given a medical examination nearly every child had at least one defect, had teeth, several had diseased ton sils, adenoids or defective eyesight. In Foreman where about half of the under weight children were examined places is that those children who are most under nourished are suffering from the geatest number of defects As yet none of the underweight children in Ashdown and Ogden have received such examination, but whe.i they do the same condition will he found to exist doubtless. The aim of the thorough medical examination is to reveal to the indi vidual and to those who have his welfare at heart not only his physical weaknesses and defects ,but also his strong points. One can never know too much about ones self, and only by a thorough constructive program can the high degress of physical un fitness revealed by the draft examina tions be eliminated in the growing generation. The height weight survey given iu Little River County by the Nutrition Worker, shows that an average cf about 50 per cent of the school child ren fall below normal 10 per cent or more. This is not in only a few places. It is planned that before the close of the present program every school in session in this county dur ing the- past three months will be vis- j ited and the figures on each child j weighed and measured be available. Arkansas is making a tremendous j effort to raise the rating of her public I schools. It is just as important—in fact more so to rais-e the physical rat ing of her boys and girls, for after all they are the ones who make up the public school system. Little River County is to have a pub lie health nurse and that is a real forward step in the health program But if this nurse is to do all and ac complish as much as she might, she must have the individual people of the county with her and the active cooperation of every organized group of men, women, and children, while she is workin. -o CONTRACTORS AT WORK Raze Old Court House at lit.

COUNTY AUTOMOBILE CASE IS AFFIRMED Supreme Court Handed Itown Decision Monday Upholding Lower Court —Must. Replace Money. The automobile case, which was ap pealed from the Little River Circuit Court, was affirmed by the Supreme Court in a; decision handed down Mon day. It will be remembered that County Judge P. M.
