Over in Oklahoma, during the progress of a “farewell meeting” to encourage the boys of the lo cal military company, a socialist present expressed a devout wish that “everyone who goes to Mex ico will be planted there,” min ing that he hoped no United States soldier would return alive. A Wewokan very promptly floored the man with his fist and continued the pummeling process until the recumbent individual was considerably the worse for wear. Later, when he was able to arise and walk, he was chas ed out of town. Personal difficulties and fisti cuffs are not incidents to be highly praised. r ~— - . —“~ Ana yet we wonder if the fel low imagined that he could give utterance to a sentiment like that in any public gathering in this country and get away with it. At any rate, if he did, he knows better now. Roosters always have some thing to crow about about three o’clock in the morning. About the best way to get something off one’s mind is to commit it to memory. Well, anyhow, it would be a lovely June if it were not for the weather and the politics. We have an almost irresis table inclination to write a beautifully euphonistic paragraph about Ar kansas’ June sunshine, but it may rain by the time this page gets on the press. If Amendment No. 12 is adopted, school districts will still be free to levy upon them selves 3 mills, 5 mills, 7 mills or no mills at all, as they determine by majority vote. The Arrogant Gringo. The Mexicans are displaying growing bitterness toward the “vile" gringo. We are not informed as to the specific ground for their bitter ness but we imagine they thirst for the blood of Uncle Sam for the following reasons: A large American army has been encamped on Mexican soil for many months and in that time has committed no act of aggression nor cast any aspara | POETIC SPASM NO. 11 | I boast no glossy motor car.

It has burned no ranches, bom barded no cities, cut the hands and feet off no women, and loot ed no mines. It has tortured no children, seized no Mexican millionaires to hold for ransom, and comman deered no herds of cattle or stocks of merchandise. The American soldiers have neither butchered, outraged, sto len no destroyed. They have kindly removed from mundane existence a few of the hordes of professional as sassins and robbers who are re sponsible for the present dev astation of a once rich and pros perous country. The American army has shot no provisional presidents against an adobe wall. The American army has turn ed loose hundreds of dollars in Mexico that are real dollars. It has paid the Mexican people cash for everything it has received and has made existence and in dustry safe in regions where formerly terrorism existed. It will readily be'seen that all these actions are in direct con travention of the noble ideals of the self-respecting and fervidly, almost violently, patriotic Mexi can. They figure that the actions of the American soldiers have been an insult to and an outrage upon every red-blooded and thieving Son of the Fatherland. Hence the despicable and unut terable gringo should be driven forth, with bells and banners. The Clarion Voice of the Great Liberator and Preserver of the Grand Palladium of Freedom, Juan de Dios Carrabajal y Cruz y Banana de Santos de Cacahua tes de Chile de Jimcro de Pino nes, calls the Loyal Patriots to Drive forth the Yankee Pig who has planted the iron shod heel of the mailed fist of oppression up on the eternal and God-given right of the unconquerable, im mortal, invincible peon to run amuck. Neither Wilson nor Hughes will be the next president. March 4, 1917, comes on Sunday and the secretary of state will hold the job dWn until noon of the next Monday after, when the newly elected president will be sworn in. (Get out and take in some easy money on this tip.) William J. Bryan, it is re ported, will speak at Helena at an early date. It is said that he will discuss political issues and incidentally urge the voters of Arkansas to support Amend ment Nos. 12 and 13, both of which he has heretofore strong ly endorsed. A sign in a Concordia, Kansas garage reads: ‘‘Don’t smoke your cigarettes near the gasoline tank. Even if you aren’t worth much gasoline is.” The Hen Stayed on the Job. ‘‘The storm of Monday norht of town carried a setting hen, the nest and eggs a distance of i mile and deposited them in an other barn. She had been set ting 13 days and when found the next day the eggs were all hatch ed. The neighbors say that the eggs were hatched in transit and the prematurity was caused by velocity. It’s some storm that will cut eight days off of na ture.’’—Lonoke County News. Do you believe the above story? Same here. I desire to rent my farm. Party applying must give refer ence.—Mrs. M. B.

The Sp ctator “We life the UNDERWOOD’’ Ozark, : Arkansas Maple Grove We are still having plenty of rain, but it’s interspersed with sunshine and everybody is still busy. A car of Irish potatoes was being loaded at Ratcliff and to rush the completion of the load they offered to pay $1.30 cents per bushel Tuesday and Wednes day and some of our neighbors dug quickly and got it, but others who dug two days later only got 75 cents.

Lots of grain has been cut and of course that cuts the bill for the “boughten” feeds. Old corn is scarce and selling for one dollar per bushel. Mai Council came in from Florida the 9th and as he had not done a days work in the sun (he had been grading and packing tomatoes) since March he has been busy getting used to the direct rays of Old Sol so as to be able to go to the harvest in the northwest the last of June. Dew berries are ripe and gone,j but lots of them were gathered j and made into pies or canned, j Blackberries are now getting | ripe and are as fine as I ever j saw. The cherry crop was a complete failure. Several are making kraut and others will make later, and all sorts of garden “sass” is fine and 1 opine that that is the cause of so manv not feeling well. Mrs. Council has been with her daughter, Mrs. Bryan, since Tuesday and will stay this week. The Way to Raise Hogs. R. D. Hill is raising hogs at Effa for 21 cents per pound dressed.
