CORN FOR SHADE

Sorghum and Kafir Corn Also Make
Good Silage—Garden Work

By Dean Martin Nelson, College at
Agriculture, University oi

There Is every indication at the

Corn the Staple Crop For the Silo.
The staple crop for the silo is corn.

yield of ears ae well as stalks is a
good silage cor* We want grain as
well as stalks and leaves, and the va
riety that produces great growth of

variety for silage. We want as large

REDDING.
Editor Spectator:—It has been
several years since I have writ
ten to vour paper. Hence. I
write, and if you deem it worthy
pie print it.
Well, times around Redding
are a mixture of good and bad.
Corn plowing and cotton plant
ing the order of the day.
The farmers here are making
every effort to raise a supply of
food for both man and beast. A
greater effort than has been
made in many years.
On the 20th was Good Roads
Day. 13 gathered at the home
of P. H. .Tames. The oldest
hand on the road is 68 years old,
and he wrorked from 7 a. m. to
5 p. m. If we had had the town
ship tools we would have done
more work. We were bothered
for lack of tools.
The writer visited yesterday
the new railroad at the new town
near the old home of your
“better half,” Mr. McAllister.
While there I met and formed
the acquaintance ox Mr. Scaggs,
a merchant of that place. 1
found him a gentleman of splen
did qualities, one whom it is j
good to meet. He has the abi 1-.
ity to make anyone seem a I
home.
Rev. Wm. Hogan of near Al
tus was in this vicinity Saturday
night and Sunday. He visited
with the writer of this. He j
preached at the Chapel Sunday, i
1 am sorry to hear of the sad 1
death of the wife of Mr. John
Dunkin. She was a splendid
woman. She will be missed.
Success to the Spectator.

Notice, School Directors
The last session of the legisla
ture passed a law requiring all
school bonds or other evidence
of school indebtedness be regis
tered with tne County Treasurer
and a certificate of same be sent
to the Superintendent of Public
Education, Little Rock, Arkan
sas, by the Directors.
The law requires that the reg
istration show county, number
or name of District, to whom
issued or sold, price paid, rale
of interest, date of issue and
date of maturity, together with
the place of payment.
Further: This law requires
that no Bond be sold for less
than Par and shall bear No
greater rate of interest than 6
per cent per annum.
No Board of Directors of a
Special or Common School Dis
trict is authorized to issue Bonds
unless instructed to do so by a
majority of electors voting at a
properly authorized election.
I desire, also, to call the atten
tion of Directors of Common
Districts, to Section 7620, page
60. of the DIGEST OF LAWS
RELATING to FREE SCHOOLS
in the STATE of ARKANSAS,
which forbids Directors of such
Districts expending more than1
$25.00 per year for “Maps,
Globes, and other Apparatus”
(This does not include such in
cidentals as stoves, fuel, cray
on, etc), and then only by in
struction of a majority of the
electors voting on said expendi
tures and for just such articles
as may have been approved by
the Superintendent of Public In
struction, and he has withdrawn
his endorsement of every kind
and quality, for the present.
I hope the Directors through
out the entire county will rem
ember this and insert in ^hpir
School Notices just what they
desire at the Annual School Elec
tion, which will be May 19th.
Yours respectfully.
Garland D. Hamm,
County Treasurer.
Through the courtesy of Miss
Mayme Waterfield, we have re
ceived an invitation to the com
mencement exercises of Mem
phis Conference Female Institu
te of Jackson. Trim., beginning
May 15th. Miss Mavme is one
of the graduating class members
and will receive a certificate in
English. She is to be congratu
lated upon her work at the insti
tution and the reputation she
has made as an efficient student.
Jesse M. Milton of near Har
nes was a caller at the Spectator
office Tuesday morning. Mr.
Milton reports a light frost Mon
day night, tint no damage to
crops, which look good in his
section.

Why Does Father Forget?
One of the mysteries of life is |
the way the average father for-!
gets the dates of the birth of his j
children. Usually he manages!
to keep account of his wedding
anniversaries, and as a rule the
dates of the deaths stick in his
mind. But if he has more than
two children, he never is sure of
he dates of their birth. Recent -
y, a reporter asked ten business
men, picked at random, to recite
off-hand the dates of the birth
of their children. Two knew.
Three thought they knew, but
were not certain. Four knew in
a vague way, and could place the
dates by months, and one man’s
memory failed him completely.
Takers of city school censuses
recognize this failing to such ;;n
extent that they seldom try to
secure the date of birth from
the lather if if is possible to s< e
the mother. Why is it ?

the same method in their treatment
of boils, pimples, rashes, carbuncles,

apply a salve or lotion to the sore

they fail to recognise is, that these
skin diseases are diseases of the blood,

permanently cure them, because they
