That Tanlac Conserves the Health of Rail
road Men and Makes Them Fit for Respon
sible Duties in Most Nerve-Racking Service.
KTO calling demands a clearer brain, steadier nerves, a more perfect
^ state of health than that of a railroad engineer. The safety of thou
sands depends on guarding his health, which is as important to the public
as the efficiency of his engine. Every engineer realizes this enormous
responsibility, he dares not take chances with so important a matter. That
is why #o many of them are using Tanlac—it steadies the nerves, clears
the brain, corrects indigestion, strengthens the arm, insures the safety
of the traveler, and keeps him on his job.
Railroad engineers everywhere in
dorse Tanlac because they have tried
It and know. Read what they say.

and Nashville, says: “Wife had nerv

7 pounds.”
Evidence from such sources ns these
is unassailable. These men are ex
posed to all conditions of weather as
no others are. Their runs take them
from mountain to seashore, from
swamp to highland through rain and
storm, cold and sleet, and they never
falter in their duty. They must al
ways guard against disease. These
men speak from personal experience;
no wonder they pin their faith to Tan
lac, for it has served them well.

To Dynamite a Stream.
The editor of a Jersey newspaper,

neck, attach fuse, light it and run as
fast as you can away from the water
to avoid injuring the other snakes and

Benefits From Gardening.
The man who puts In honest and con
scientious work on his garden must tie
a winner, even if not one radish over
finds its way to Ids dinner table. He
is benefited by the vigorous outdoor
work. He is strengthened by the con
sciousness of having done his best.
And lie lias gained valuable experi
ence which will enable him to do bat
ter next year.
it is safe to predict that t’e gar
dens that fail to produce anything will
be very few. The spirit which in
spires the back-yard gardener is the
spirit that works miracles. Of those
who undertake the work with little
hope the majority are likely to be
happily surprised. Even partial suc
cess is an abundant reward, and it w ill
be an incentive for more intelligent
though not more conscientious work in
the future.—Exchange.

GOV. PIPING TO
BILL FAILED TO PASS LEGISLA
TURE DURING LAST SESSION
THROUGH AN OVERSIGHT.
OVERLOOKED IN THE HOUSE
Will Issue Deficiency Proclamation
and Ask 1919 Legislature To Make
Necessary Appropriation To Re
pay Interest on the Bonds.
Little Rock.—
It has been definitely settled Ihrt
the bill carrying $1,650,000 for Con
federate pensions failed to pass the
last Legislature. The bill passed the
Senate, but was misplaced in the
House and left on the calendar. In
order to obviate the necessity of con
vening the Legislature in special ses
sion to pass the appropriation Gov.
Brough conferred with a number of
bankers and it is believed a plan will
be worked out to save the state the
expense of an extra legislative ses
sion.
Gov. Brough's plan was that the
state, through the state depository
board, would lend the $85(1,000 collect
ed annually from the two mill pension
tax to the banks agreeing to partici
pate. The banks in turn would cash
pensioners’ vouchers. Under Gov.
Brough's plan the bank would be
charged two per cent interop for use
of the money. In addition to cost of
surety bonds. Gov. Brough agreed,
however, to issue a deficiency procla
mation and ask the 1919 Legislature
to make the necessary appropriation
to repay the two per cent interest and
the cost of the bonds. Under the law
the money could not be loaned the
banks except on interest of two per
cent or more.
Gov. Brough, Attorney General Ar
buckle and Auditor Oliver explained
the situation to the bankers.
On motion of former Congressman
McRae of Prescott the bankers re
ferred the matter to the Little Rock
Clearing Association, with recommen
dation that a committee to make fur
ther investigation be appointed. The
bankers tentatively ageed to abide by
the action of the committee.
"I am frank to say that 1 don’t want
1 to call a special session of the Legisla
ture,” said Gov. Brough. "Already
many have been calling on me and
urging that I call a special session
I and incorporate various matters to be
I acted upon in my proclamation. “One
j wanted me to call for creation of the
Port Smith Little Rock Highway, and
j several wanted me to incorporate a
: request for repeal of the law calling a
constitutional convention.
"The situation is serious. The pon
j sioners must be paid, if it necessitates
a special session of the Legislature.”
Gov Brough said he did not know
how the bill could have been overlook
ed, "except through the negligence cf
some members of the House.”
Appeals Bone Dry Case.
The second appeal from the bone
dry law was filed In the Supreme
Court in the case of the State vs. Eu
gene Robertson of Mississippi county.
Robertson acquired his trouble by
sending the same trunk too often in
to the oases. After several trips the
trunk inspectors along the route be
gan to recognize It as it went out
tinder ballast and returned loaded,
and inspection discovered that on its
return trips it carried a heavy cargo
of contraband packed tightly in bed
cloths, pillows, etc. As alleged owner
of the trunk Robertson was fined $100
and sentenced to 110 days in the Mis
sissippi county jail, from which he
appealed.
Gets Jobs For Negroes.
The "branch office" of the state
tree employment bureau reported that
through Its agency three negro cooks
were placed in employment. The
branch is located in the Haskins and
Jordan negro poolroom at -111 Ixiuis
iann street, and the co-operation is
voluntary Haskins, one of the pro
prietors of the pool hall, has bet a fur
nishing \V. W. Sprague, deputy in
charge of the state bureau, with in
formation, and has placed a bulletm
board in the poolroom.

Food Demonstration.
Plans for a practical demonstration
of food preparedness at the county
teachers’ institutes are being made
by J. L. Bond, state superintendent ol
public instruction. Mr. Bond is send*
ing letters to the county superintend
ents and examiners asking that five
days of each institute to be devoted
to the demonstration, at which ‘the
county demonstration and canning
club agents will be asked to co-oper
ate. The program suggested by Mr.
Bond includes work by both the can
ning club agent and the demonstra
tion agent, and It Is probable that a
joint program will be arranged. The
first day of the demonstration would
include a general outline of food con
servation and garden work; the sec
ond instructions on the manufacture
and use of the home canned and field
food crops; the third, drying fruits
and vegetables and the care and
breeding of live stock; the fourth,
canning beans and cultivation of food
crops; and the Yifth, canning toma
toes and farm management.
Will Transfer Cavalry.
('apt. W. F. Jeffett, Troop A, Third
Cavalry, of Helena, and J. W. Denni
son and George Vineyard, lieutenants
of the troop, proposed to Governor
Rrough that the troops be temporar
ily transferred from the cavalry or
ganization to the infantry, to be made
a part of the Third Arkansas Infantry.
At a conference between the govern
or, Adjutant General Lloyd England
and the three cavalry officers, It was
agreed that the change should oo
made as soon as practicable. Assur
ances were given the Helena troop

personnel of the offlers, would be rec
ognized both by the governor and the
adjutant general.

tract calls for a 23-mile gravel road

$150,000.

What He Could Do.
“I want to serve my country,” snld
the loud-voiced man in the street car.
"ltut I*m too old to cnrry a gun."
"So?"
"Yes," he continued. “The way they
run tilings down there at Washington
nowadays there’s no chance for a mnn
like me. I could he mighty valuable
to them if they’d only fake me."
“I'll tell you how you can serve
your country If you really want to,"
said a meek little man.
“All right. Tell me what to do and
ru do it."
".lust keep your mouth shut."
. The use of electric power in the
great staple industries of the South is
constantly increasing.
The cheery mnn is welcome every
where if he doesn't overdo it.
An Effective Plea.
"What do you mean by begging from
door to door when your country needs
such husky fellows as you?" asked the
patriotic person, indignantly.
“I've walked sixty miles te en
list, guv’nor," answered the tramp.
"Dis is de las' lap of the Journey, an’ I
t’ought under de circumstances you
wouldn’t mind glvln’ me a handout.”
“Certainly not. Step around to the
kitchen and I'll have the cook tlx you
up a good breakfast.”
-Incompatible.
“That was a bald excuse he gave
about tiring olf his pistol."
"Couldn’t have been a bald excuse;
it had a hair trigger.’’_
A little flattery tastes sweet to a
wise man and a good deal of it tastes
sweet to a fool.

You Take No Chances
in Buying a Saxon
You may buy a Saxon believing it to be the
best car in its class and you will get what
you pay for.
You may look for longer service, better per
formance and lower up-keep bills from your
Saxon than from any other car of like price.
And you will not be disappointed.
If there was any doubt that Saxon cars are the
best in their respective divisions it has long
since disappeared.
And the proof of this you will find, a thousand*
fold over, in the records of Saxon ownera—
and in the opinion of motor-cat buyera in
general. Saxon cars have definitely estab
lished their superiority in every phase of
motor car performance.
And just as surely and decisively as they have
proved themselves abler acting cars, have they
proved themselves cheaper cars to keep up.
To build cars of such quality and such value
clearly reflects the strength and soundness
and ability of the Saxon organisation.
