County Agent Lueker, of
Miller county, has helped to or
ganize five neighborhoods in
that county for fairs to be held
in September or October. Each
district includes from four to
seven school units and the organi
zation has a set or officers, and
five committees—program, fair,
education, health and roads.
Thus there is something for
everybody to do towards build
ing up the community. Last
year two such fairs were
held, the one at Fouke having
an attendance of two thousand
people. Last year the prizes
were furnished by the business
men of Texarkana, but this year
the farmers decided to finance
the fairs themselves although
cordially inviting the town peo
pie to attend. There should be
a thousund of these neighbor
hood fairs held in Arkansas this
fall. The Extension Service of
the University of Arkansas and
U. S. Department of Agriculture
with offices at Fayetteville and
Little Rock, is deeply interested
in this movement and ninety
men and women county agents
are willing to help.
The peach crop of Arkansas
will not quite equal previous
records in quantity, but it is
hoped that our shippers will
raise their previous standard.
This year Arkansas strawberries
were shipped on a higher stand
ard than ever before and the
season ended with Arkansas
berries leading the country in
the demand in northern and
eastern cities. It will pay to
cull better and keep out both
small and overripe peaches and
use the canners at home. Ship
fewer peaches and keep the
price up and can the culls.
JNbw is the time for neighbor
hood organizations to be formed
to pick and sell together and to
agree to ship out only first class
peaches and label every basket
with name of grower. The Ex
tension Division of the Univer
sity and the U. S. Department of
Agriculture will send a horticul
turist to any neighborhood on
request for a packing school.
Big national advertisers are
learning that they can reach
more people for less money
through the columns of the local
newspapers than with the $1000 a
page service of the magazines
they have formerly u3ed, and
many of them are already divert
ing their advertising to the local
newspapers. A significant thing
about it is that practically all of
them always inquire whether or
not the paper uses a syndicate
ready-print service, and then
give the preference to the all
home print papers. We have no
quarrel with the W. N. U., who
sells the “patent” service, but it
seems to us that the above facts
ought to cause ready print be
lievers to stop and think. The
home print paper saves about 50
per cent on the cost of the
stock and gets the long end
from the foreign advertisers—
granting always that they have
sufficient circulation to give ad
vertisers results for their money.
Probably one thousand of those
schools will be in session in Ark
ansas in July and August. Some
practical outdoor work will help
these schools to be more effective
than if the entire time were
spent on the usual school studies,
The Extension Division of the
University of Arkansas and U.
S. Department of Agriculture
with offices at Little Rock is pre
paring outlines on six or eight
subjects including studies or
outlines on “Poultry,” “Clo
vers,” “Weeds,” “Trees,” and
a few others.
Col. Roosevelt’s speech at
Kansas City was marred by a
presumptuous falsehood, for
there is not a peace*at-any-price
man in all America. There are,
however, millions of them who
refuse to be stampeded by the
buckets-of-blood advocates who
would foolishly plunge this coun
try into the maelstrom of war
that now is mowing down mil
lions of the flower of European
manhood-men forced to fight
their fellows because of they
know not what. Judge Wray’s
withdrawal of his support from
Roosevelt in consequence of the
extreme military position taken
by the Colonel likely will be
followed by the withdrawal of
many other progressives who
have become weary of war and
all things connected with it.
This country cannot be consoled
nor coerced into military mad
ness and it rapidly is being edu
cated out of hero worship. It
recognizes with facility what
Mr. Dooley felicitously character
izes as “th’ Teddy Bird-rd” as a
dead hoot owl stuffed with jing
oistic fallacies.
YOUR COMPLEXION is muddy. You look hag
gard and yellow. Your eyes are losing their
lustre. The trouble is with your liver. Take
Chamberlain’s Stomach and Liver Tablets. They
will correct that. Then avoid meats, hot bread
and hot cakes, take frequent baths and a long walk
every day, and you will soon be as well and as
beautiful as ever. Price 25 cents per bottle.
amberlain’s Tablets
Never was there a time in the
history of this country when the
people at large were as constant
and inveterate readers of news
papers as they are today, and
this is especially so in the matter
of newspaper advertising.
People who only a few years
ago would hardly look at an ad
vertisement now digest every
word in it, and they do it with a
purpose. The human mind is
broadening and expanding and
becoming more liberal. It de
mands food, and particularly
that class of food that conserves
the financial interests of the
reader. And the well worded
advertisement appeals directly
to every well balanced mind. It
points the way to economy.
Just now there is a good deal
being said about this “savinf?
daylight” plan, the theory o f
which is to start work an hour
earlier every morning by the
simple process of setting the
clock ahead an hour in the sum
mertime. It certainly must take
a theoretical mind to “get” that.
If we get up when the sun is
peeping over the eastern hills,
we’ll be just as sleepy—whether
the clock registers 4 a. m. or 6
a. m. Not that we ever get up
ithat early; we are dealing mere
ly with theories now.
‘ ‘Turn Arkansas loose with her
new flag and her new forward
movement in education,” is the
slogan which promises to inaugu
rate an unprecedented era ot
progress in the state. With the
adoption of Amendment No. 12
and with a teacher-governor at
the head of affairs, Arkansas
will be in a position to reach out
and secure her fair share of the
south bound tide of immigration.
We have been feeling pretty
good because several of the boys
have slipped us as much as $2
each on subscription to The
Spectator, but listen: Here’s a
Kentucky paper that a subscrib
er has just paid in $12.50 on
back subscription. Wonder
what that editor lived on all
those 12i lean years.?
Good schools are the greatest
asset that any state or communi
ty can possess. They influence
property values more than any
other one factor. If Amendment
No. 12 is adopted, every county
in the state will profit thereby.
And you needn’t snicker toe
much over our harsh language
to Berlin. Bro. Bull. You are
going to get one of them there
notes yourself in a few days.
Over 300 schools in Arkansas
were forced to suspend during
the year 1915 on account of lack
of funds. This was nothing less
than a calamity, and creates a
condition which can only be
remedied by the adoption of
Amendment No. 12.
Rumors that peace negotia
tions are under way are not loud
enough to drown the echoes from
the artillery at Verdun.
What Mexico needs is a de
facto president with a head as
cool as his feet.
It is a wise state that knows
its own favorite son.
You Can Sell It.
No matter what you have tc
sell, if it is worth the price you
ask for it, an advertisement in
The Spectator will sell it. It is
estimated that six thousand
people read The Spectator twice
a-week—Tuesday and Friday.
For Sale—Dewberries and
Early Harvest blackberries.
Himalaya berries will be ready
about June 15th. Z. L. Evans,
