To sweep our mind of old things lying there: Dreams lone since dead Hopes that have clung, like leaves on broughs now bare, And tears that wo have shed . , , . We longed to gather every little grief Left scattered round, Small doubts and fears, and lay them in a sheaf On fire, smoked crowned; Thorn stir the embers so a laughing wind Might lift the ashes of old praise and blame And bear thoin far, away, leaving our mind Clean as if swept by flume. —Selected.

A very pleasing feature of the concert will be a group of songs by the Choral club, one number being the songs they sang at the General U. D. C. convention in Hot Springs. They will wear period costumes. When you are approached to buy a ticket for thisi concert, remember that you are buying something good, and at the same time helping one of your town's organizations that is striving to give you that which is best "Among the gifts that God hath sent—Music." Dr. and Mrs. W. G. Allison were called to Conway Tuesday afternoon to attend the bedside of Dr. Allison's* father, Dr. W. M. Allison who is critically ill at his home in that city. Mrs. Charles Haynes is in Hot Springs this week attending the meeting of the general convention of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The Woman's Christian Temperance Union will meet at 2:30 Thursday afternoon at the First Baptist church for and inspirational meeting. The pastors of the different churches in .the city will be present and make short talks. All the women of the city * are cordially invited to attend this "Are You Mad?" Is Rev, Bert Webb's Sermon Topic at Tabernacle The Rev. Bert Webb's message to the Tabernacle congregation Tuesday night was on the subject, "Are You Mad," from the following scriptures: Gen. 6:5; Rom. 8:7; Ecc. 9:3, "I do not refer" said the Rev. Mr. Webb, "to that kind of madness exhibited when your temper gels away from you, but to the kind that Solomon had in mind when he he Said 'The heart of the sons of men is full of evil, and madness is in their heart while they live, and after that they go to the dead.' "I do not say that you arc mentally unbalanced. Intellectually you are perfectly rational. I have no criticism to offer, but the Bible says that madness is in you)' heart, not in your mind or your intellect. God's word ."ays that the carnal (fleshly) mind Is in enmity against God. The Bible is a rule by which I feel we would be wise to govern our lives. People in Hussellville tried to vote out Sunday motion pictures during the time Of church services. That was fine, but before you arc ever going to be able to legislate a man into something you are going to have to hove his heart changed. I believe we will get farther that way than any other. "It is the ambition of people to raise their children right. The natural inclination is for them to revel in the pleasures and sins of the world, and when you clamp down on anything by sheer determination trouble starts. I advise you to pray to God :o save your children that they may lave a change of heart. Is not this desire in,people to.do wrong a kind of moral insanity? "People have the idea that when •on surrender to God God will take away everything Worth while from you. You feel that God is your enemy ntent on doing you harm, but not so. ''If you were to warn someone going town a track that a fast train was almost upon them, and they told you o mind your own business, you would hink something was wrong. What of hose who are often warned of the consequence of sin, God's coming udgment, etc.. and who fail to take warning?" The Rev. Mr. Webb's message for Wednesday night is "In the Wrong Crowd"; Thursday night, "The Great Tribulation." TONITE Fast and Slow Motion BAER-LOUIS Fight Pictures ONE SHOW ONLY —and— Chas.

Circle No. 5 of the W. M. U. of the First Baptist church held a very interesting meeting on Monday afternoon at the home of Mrs. L. M. Clements on South Elm street with Mrs. Johnny James and Mrs. E. B. Wolfe as associate hostesses. The business period was conducted by the leader, Mrs. Cecil Weaver, and a very beautiful devotional on Thanksgiving was given by Mrs. H. A. Fisk. The closing chapters of the Mission Study Book, "At tho Gates of Asia," were discussed by Mrs. Hugh Smith. Following the mission study, the hostess served a most tempting plate lunch to 23 members. Mrs. J. D. Ellis of Texarkana, arrived Wednesday to attend the bedside of her sister, Mrs. Dan Green, who is a patient at Julia Chester hospital, * The government of Chile provides doctors and nurses when children are born.

They have lived up to ioth ing. They told us that repeal of he 18th amendment didn't mean that lard liquor would return. They lied about that. They broke every promise ;hey ever made and then slapped you n the face with wet and false prom- ses. "The Arkansas legislature refused o Jet you vote on this question. They •ailroadod the Thorn liquor bill right on through, and didn't ask you about t nor give you a chance to express your opinion. That was not democratic. "Your own local editor is not democratic enough to be willing for the people of this county to vote on this question. Why doesn't he want you o vote? Why does he want to deprive you of that vote? I'll tell you why. He loos not want to give you the opportunity of an American right. That's lot fair. Ridicules Advertising Ban "He talks about not accepting liquor advertising—and brags about it. He couldn't do better in defending the iquor interests if ho accepted all the noney the wet crowd gave him." Again there were a number of amens. "Your editor criticizes the preachers and the church. I wonder what he hinks the duty of the preachers is? There is no law to prevent them from speaking out. There is no charter in Hope that prohibits the preacher from liscussing the liquor question, is here? The preacher ought to quit if 10 wouldn't speak against the evils if liquor. "And your editor says the churches pay no tax. He ought to inform himself about that. Thats a reflection on his intelligence. The First Baptist church in Little Rock pays about $400 each year in taxes. I know of cases in this state where churches are about to be sold under the hammer for nonpayment of taxes. "With the legalization of liquor the wet crowd promised to abolish the bootlegger—that's a joke. Didn't the liquor dealers of Hope ask the enforcement officers a few days ago to make raids on the bootleggers of moonshine here? There are plenty of bootleggers everywhere. "Licensed whisky will not abolish the untaxed liqupr trade—licensed whisky only makes a double problem. The state administration promised you police protection when liquor was legalized. Yet Earl Wiseman, state commissioner, has already issued 17 liquor permits in towns over Arkansas where there is no police at all. "They promised to lower your taxes. But have they? That came out of national headquarters. I haven't heacd of lower taxes. Have you? Instead of lower taxes they slapped on additional taxes. "Counties Bled White" "The history of liquor never reduced taxes. You know that. The counties of Arkansas have been bled white for taxation to take care of the drunks, the poverty-stricken and the insane as the result of liquor. "In Little Rock there has been a 25 per cent increase in drunkenness. The officers there wijl docket you for anything except drunkenness. They want 1c SALE 1c on DRESSES THE GIFT SHOP (Mrs. C. P. te acoBfJt liquor edvtffUsing doesn' fnatler, The Rev. Mr. Blaylock would not ttty that except for the fact that he is BWapt away by the passion of the moment, He is not in business. He doesn't understand what advertising tan do, particularly when applied to B .business (n which the public profits trjost when sales are least, I now have before me the October statement of national or factory advertising from our advertising brok- Fof the full eight months that liquor has been legalized-March through October—The Star has rejected a total of $1,073.01 worth of liquor adveri tislng, That Is an average of $1,409.51 for the year. Advertising percentages range from 2 to 5 per cent—few take the higher mark. But assuming that the distlll- orios made the highest allowance, then their survey Indicated that they had a reasonable chance of selling $20 worth of liquor in this territory for every dollar they spent with The Star. On that basis, had we accepted their advertising, the six liquor stores Of Hope would have sold an adidlional $32,190.20 worth of whisky per year. Their actual sales afe running at $81,636 a year. Or, If the distileries allowed only 2 per cent for advertising, then the ratio would have been $50 worth of liquor for every advertising dollar. And on this basis they would have sold an additional $80,475.50 worth of whisky in Hope per ye:.r—practically doubling actual local sales! What a newspaper can do voluntarily toward regulating the sale of liquor a state can do by compulsion. Washington Miss Myrtle Bearden of Ouachita college spent the week end with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. E.*Bearden. Mr. and Mrs. W. I. Stroud made a trip to Arkadelphia Sunday. Miss Fannie Jane Elmore spent Saturday night and Sunday with her par- ents, returning to Arkadelphia Sunday night. i.W to hold down that figure as low as possible. I have letters here from all parts of the state, some of them from law enforcement officers, saying that conditions are growing worse—that drunkenness is on the increase." The Rev. Mr. Blaylock brought his speech to a close by picturing women' made proverty-stricken and widows because their husband were drunkards —shot down in drunken brawls. "Will the wet crowd be responsible for.i that?" he asked.
