For one thing we have too many apostles of prosperity who have only Wdifdr to tal* v.tth-doi'g to better than talking, Witness, Luther Ellison came 6ver Camden to Hope;' and from The Star we glean tt<at Camdsn's prosperity is a.fabt due to Chamber of Commerce activities. Just about the time Mr. Ellison was flalng his stunt in Hope I was saunt- jsrlng around Camdeh looking in empty store building and those that are occupied, One merchant told me there" Tire 54 empty Stores in Camden; make your own conclusions. • Another thing is too much advertls- ng— what is happening in China, Despite criticism by Mexican college students on the grounds that Newton D. Baker was secretary of war when the Pershlng expedition went'into'that country after Villa, Mr. and Mrs. Baker received a public welcome in Mexico City where the above picture was taken.' Large throngs cheered-them" upon their arrival for a brief vacation. This is one of the few pictures'ever taken of Mrs. Baker. . ;•.-•.

Get your ground ready as soon ap possible, as the season seems to be a little earlier than usual The ideal time to plant is between now. and the middle of next month. Df course you can still plant, but the risk is greater. I have over 130 acres agreed to plant. This will load cars but I would like to have at least 200 acres, then we could load as much 2 to 4 cars a day here, and would interest buyers a little in our district Plenty of plants are in our own dis- district. They are cheap—only $1.50 per thousand of $6.00 per acre. I will Kelp you get your plants. Just let me know when your ground is ready to plant. This is one of the main projects for our county. Strawberries come early, and the money will come in handy to everyone. You can afford to strain a point and help put this deal over. Lots of growers' say they will plant another year, but strain a point now and plant. I do not know what words to use to get you to realize the importance of planting now.

Instead, she brewed over the hot plate in her office a cup of coffee for herself and Harry Sexton, the speaker's other secretary, who somehow was squeezed out in a jam at which seats were at a great premium.

We narrate it and comment about it'to every one that will listen—and the radios, oh man, how noisy they are, all day long and far into the night, telling us of the starving people in Nebraska, Idaho, of too much wheat, totf much cotton too much corn and lot enough to eat, and pigs from Ne- jraska selling at 3% cents per pound, not since the 1870's have provisions jeen so cheap. No jobs? No, there aren't any jobs, we don't know enough to stread them around while it rains. Look at the railroad men that have been turned adrift in the past year, fully half of them. Ten years of my life was spent railroading, two panics, one yellow fever epidemic, one smallpox, epidemic occurred during by railroad days and business stopped, or nearly so—bul did the older employees lay off and let the 1 extra men work any? Not or your life; they took all the work and let the other fellows go hang. Go down to the railroad offices' in Hope. We all know they have agents, telegraphers, clerks, porters. Ask them how much they have laid off to give their fellows a few days work. I know what the answer is already. And here is a little history. My father raised 12 children. We lived In comfortable log houses; plowed with oxen; made our own clothing and went barefood nine months in the year—but only barefooted, not bare-breasted and bare-legged. It took 12 trips around a t ow of corn to do the work our farmers do in one trip. Oxen travel slow, so -it took more than 12 times aS'inuch time " "it now takes. We ^worked early J late, slept well, ate heartily and diecl young, *my father- at 79, my mother at a2. Twenty miles away was a long distance. Now it's only thirty minutes, can go over there and come back, while breakfast is getting ready. And laws, oh my stars, everybody wants to save the country with laws. Ask any lawyer and he Will tell you we havej.too many laws. Not a man on*tarth'can obey them all, yet what do the lawyers do when we send them to legislate for us? Our record at Little Rock is a law passed every four and a half minutes; and as if that was too slow we read that 21 laws got the 'governor's signature last year that had never been read before the law makers. How much consideration can a man give a law in four and one half minutes? What is a man to do who is expected to obey 90,000 laws as we are in Arkansas? We have them, at least they , tell me we have that many; I have never counted them. And then "we uave prohibition. Thank God for prohibition. Can any man or woman tell us what good iti does to drink intoxicants. I have spent ] my life among saloons and drinking, people and have watched them close-' ly, when sober and when drunk and. I'or the life of me I cannot see where j it does one any good to drink intoxicants even very modeartely, and yet, again, we are being told in vociferous language, by newspaper, by radio, by signs on the autos, by word of mouth and even from the pulpits, very few, thank God, that our remedy is 3 3-4 per cent beer, which of course leads to stronger stuff. Not in my day or will it in any other man's day ever occur that a drinking man has sense enough to stop until he is well drunken. Our remedy lies in being reasonable, working less, serve God more earnestly, and being content. Homestead, home of W. R.
