A. r'artilty meeting will be held at Hie IVlviiis llijLili School building at melon weighing more than 100 pounds— ami in cxchnngc the governor would send Mr. McFaddin a potato weighing 100 pounds or more. From a list of newspaper clippings md letters Mr. McFaddin has received recently—the melon's arrival created a sensation at Boise, Idaho, and •jlhcr places in the northwestern state. A letter from thc Idaho governor lo Mr. McFaddin says: "I am sending you by express, a box of fancy Idaho Russet potatoes and .sweet Spanish onions, that should arrive at your address shortly, and I hope you receive the same enjoyment from them that I had from the superb watermelon which you sent to me. "Not only did this watermelon make a meal for my family and my friends, but in addition, half of it was sent to the local children's home where some eight-odd youngsters got a good taste of an Arkansas melon. "When I volunteered to send you an Idaho potato as large as the melon, that you jovially .said you were going to send me, I had little expectation of having to fulfill my part of the agreement. After receiving thc melon, however, I knew that I Would have to do my part, so I sent out a request for a onc-hundrcd-opnud potato. "Eventually, I was able to secure a box of palatocs and onions mixed. The onions were produced on thc THE THEATER farm of Mr. Howard Simpson of-established Param, and Mr. F. B. Kelly of Cald- woll produced the potatoes. for both a luscious surprise and a tough job. "Edward F. McFaddin, Hope, Ark., gave the Post-Register advance information on what is to come. "Representative of Rotary International, Mr. McFaddin was one of the principal speakers at thc Rotary district convention here this summer. It was during the convention that he met Governor Bottolfsen. "In a letter lo daho's chief executive, copy of which was sent lo Thc Post-Register, the southerner said: "In thc course of one or thc other of our conversations, said something about Hope, Ark., being thc homo of Ihc world's largest watermelons, and told you that we raised watermelons down here that weighed as much as 155 pounds; and that it was not an uncommon thing at all for a watermelon to exceed 100 pounds in weight. "Since 1 was a guest.in your slate, you were polite enough not to question my veracity by outright statement but by lifting of the eyebrows and other innuendos, I could easily see that you were somewhat dubious of my veracity. "You (old ihe (hat whenever I sent you a watermelon that wegihed JOO pounds you would send me an Idaho potato that weighed 100 pounds. "Well, governor, by express, I r sending you a Hope, Ark., watermelon that just before shipping weighed 110 pounds. "I would appreciate it if you would a picture made of this melon and have picture made of this melon and make a certificate as to the weight of the melon so that thc veracity of one more Arkansas fellow can be i insc thoroughly in fresh solvent. If the hat needs reblocking use a round bowl or deep saucepan somewhere near your headsize for a mold. First stretch a clean cloth over the bowl, pinning the corners underneath. Tliis gives .something to fasten the padding to. Pad the mold until It is the right size and shape and cover smoothly with a piece of muslin. The hat must be thoroughly moist before blocking. Steam it from the inside by holding it over the spout of a steaming teakettle. Then stretch it over the mold, pushing and pulling it into shape until it fits the mold IN NEW YORK NEW YORK — The Laws arm is reselling out again for the entrepreneurs of chance. That periodic drive against gamblers has been resumed and, here and there, you hear of a dispirited raid upon a roulette wheel, a "birdcage' 'or a faro table.

Tie cord tightly ridors of chance sound melodramatic it the head size line to hold it place. Continue to steam the felt and push and stretch it until it comes to the desired shape. Do not remove from) "j the block until the felt is thoroughly dry. Thc brim may be stretched and worked by hand and pressed with a wnrrn iron. Rub thc hat lightly with sandpaper and finish by brushing with a soft brush. Begin at the tip of the brown and brush around and around in one direction working outward until the entire surface is smooth. Sometimes a felt brim can bo given a fresher look if the edge is trimmed a little. Lay it on a flat surface and cut with a ra/.or blade held at right angles. With electricity now being used by many rural families and becoming a possibility for many more, the importance of all members of the family understanding saftey rules in order lo lirevent fires from short circuits can- ont be overemphasized.

Canficld, at connoisseur, man of leUers gambler exlroitlinary, glittered on the front pages of. old New ;York. When his ultra-exclusive deri raided one cold bleak December night by William Travers Jerome, thc Dewey of his day, people scanned the headlines with incredulity. It was not possible they exclaimed. "You can't close Canfield's" was the protesting cry. His massive, four-story brownstone structure on East Forty-Fourth Street, with its magnificent art gallery, which scred as a fabulous gambling niche for multi-millionaires had defied the authorities for years. Millionaire Clientele Canfield operated simultaneously three dens in Manhattan, Saratoga and Newport. Stakes hit new high at his places. His plungers were the creme ynd as he started to stroll out of the room, mumured solicilusly to Gates, "Are. you sure that's enough?" Gates didn't reply and played on doggedly for the next two days. When he reached for his lop hat, he had not only recouped his lossses, but had won an addition ?150,000 besides! —But Canfield Couldn't Gamble Canfield was the paradox of his New York age. As one columnist remarked "He could talk intelligently on anything." An art critic, man o£ letters, financier, he delved into abstractions and sciences. But there was one thing he could not do suavely. He could not gamble. HE hardly knew how! He was a "gentleman" to the finger tips. He liked the credit system to indicate his polite and ungra.sp- ing manners. As ho often put it Til trust any millionaire!" Though he accumulated a quarter of a million dollars in bad checks and I. O. U.'s he rarely asked a man in debt lo quit. But he never delayed thc winner's stakes, paying them in Vas checks or cash, as they preferred. . - t .-w~,-.-,. *..,., jj, u, •£ ) <_i ti w «i v LIU; UI tJj every adut member ol the family to d e la crcme of .society and finance 11 M/-Ini'i_'4 n»rl i ttli r\4 +1-..-. f,,,,~ 1.,,.. : „ f . • "->*"« nii*_v,. understand what the fuse box is for and what to do if a fuse blows out.

James E. Hamill Pastor I?cv. James E. Hamill,' pastor, of the Hope Gospel Tabernacle, has returned from Springfield, Mo., where he attended thc twenty fifth anniversary General Council of the Assemblies oC God, and will fill Ihn pulpit at thc Tabernacle both Sunday morning, when he shall speak on "A Good Appetite," and Sunday night when the subject will be, "Distrub- ing Public Worship." At the close of the Sunday School Mr. Hamill will give a report of thc General Council, which he says is Ihc best ever held. Between four and five thousand people attended this meeting, and according lo Rev. Hamill many real constructive policies were adpot- cd, dealing with foreign and home missions .development of new Sunday Schools, and establishment of new churches, et. In thc past two years more than 2,000 new Assembly of God Sunday Schools have been established. About 500 new churches have been founded, 48 of this number being in Arkansas. With approximately 300 persons pre- 1 sent at the first General Council 1 in Hot Springs, Ark., in IflH. the General Council has grown lo more, than 250,000 members in the U. S. A. with a church attendance which far exceeds this number. The Pentecostal Evangel, official organ of (he Assemblies of God, in the U. S. A., has thc alrgcst circulation of any denominational paper in the United Status, In ]9H its circulation was 12000, today thc circulation is KI.OOO weekly. Mr. Hamill says. One resolution of interest to pass Ihe Council unamiously was to send President Roosevelt a telegram commending him for his efforts to keep (he United States out of war, and urging that this country shall continue neutral in thc present European conflict. Rev. Hamill asked that all who arc interested in this work to be present Sunday for a detailed report. according to Mrs. Ida A. Fenton, Extension economist in home management, University of Arkansas College of Agriculture, its style and shape can be revevccl by home cleaning and blocking. Advising the use of carbon tctrach- loride, one of the best dry-cleaning solvents because it is noninflammable Mrs. Fenton provides thc following suggestions for cleaning and blocking Thc cleaning fluid should be used in a well-ventilated place, and there should be enough on hand so that the hat may be dipped into two seuaratc bowls. Any changes needed in the sape of the hat other than creases or tucks put in after blocking, should be made before cleaning. Then brush the hat well, dip in the dry-cleaning solvent brush well witJi a soft brush, and n case one blows out.

A list of the lights and outlets on each circuit, placed near the fuse box is a help. If the cause of the difficulty is known, it is a simple matter to insert a good fuse. If the trouble has been merely an overload, the remedy is fewer lights or appliances on that circuit. If a broken or loose wire has caused a shore sicruit, the repair must be made by one who knows how, before a good fuse is inserted. Otherwise, thc fuse will go out again. If you do not know what the trouble is and how to remedy it, Mr. Arnold warns, get someone who does. Many persons remove plug by pulling on the cord instead of on the plug itself. Pulling on the cord eventually will break the fine wires that carry the current and a short circuit may result. Another bad habit is screwing in plugs with appliances attached to them so that thc cords twist and kink. Such plugs arc usually in two parts, and can be separated to screw in the part that goes into thc outlet. Better still, leave tre scrcww part in thc outlet and disconnect the part attached to the cord when using. Open socket out- 1. Does not rot dresses — docs not irritate skin. 2. No waiting to dry.
