Km 1 ford, president, of tlie Arkansas Cotton Trade association, told local cotton men yesterday, that the complete remedy fo'v the difficulties of the American cotton farmer will never be found through cooperative marketing alone. Farming, like any other industry, must successfully meet problems of production and of finance as well as problems of distribution or marketing. And it is also true that the more successfully any industry, including fanning, meets its financing and production problems the less difficulty it will have in marketing its products successfully. County agricultural agents and a .variety of other agencies arc endeavoring to help the farmer produce his crops efficiently and economically. Progressive farmers recognize the need for improvement along this line, and great progress is being made. There is also a growing realization .that farming on credit imposes • a heavy handicap upon the grower and upon the entire community. Too many planters are attempting operations that are out of proportion to their capital, which is something that spells trouble in any line of business. But the mere fact that a marketing system which, from the producers standpoint, is inefficient, is by : no means the only obstacle to farm prosperity aiid perhaps not.even t^e.-greRl- cst one," is no argument 'agaiiisf seeking .to improve that system. It is not the small profit which the dealer earns for marketing the farm- er's' cotton that makes a better marketing system necessary. It is extremely doubtful if the cooperatives, even under the most favorable circumstances, can effect any material reduction in the cost of handling the cotton from producer to mill. For this year, at least, it is generally agreed that the cooperatives will be doing well to handle the cotton on as narrow a margin as do the big cotton companies.. The important service that the cooperatives can perform is to stabilize the market, to effect a coordination between production and marketing. This is not going to be an easy task, but it can be achieved if the growers of any one commodity—in this instance cotton—will really got Ijpliind the t>- operative. The" comparison with oilier forma of industry is sound. The manufacturing concern that let its prot'wlion and sales departments opcrali* without knowledge nf each others programs would be on (\w rocks in no lime. The farmer is the production department of the cotton business. He needs a sales department lliat will kw-p in touch with his needs, and lliat will keep him advised of what the market wants and is willing in pay. Imgalicn in Arkansas One of []•,<• result.? of this summer'.--, drouth has Ijc-en to stimulate experiments with Irrlgatlin in Various parts of ArkarVs. Knrly in July the oiierutors of a l,SOfl-acn> corn field located In a rlvor bend near Ccttun I'limi Installed a imwrrful pump en a rafi and began taking water from an arm cf t!w White river. More re- x ceiuly. when total loss threatened a 1,000-acre corn field on a unit of the Tin-leer prison farm.

On the economic and technical sid? there are of course questions that, i-annot be settled ntl- hund. Drouths are no'. ;j IK expected every year.

He was a, wholly incapable of doing- manual labor. Mr. Harrison was prosecuting attorney, and this young man. was indicted by the Grand Jury at Osceola in nine, sopnvarc cases for the crimes of burglary and p;rand larceny, committed by stealing'automobile tires. Being- without funds and unable to hire counsel, he was at the mercy of Mr. Harrison and his deputy. He was induced to'enter pleas of guilty in each of the nine cases against him, and was sentenced to one year in the penitentiary in each case. But, this did not mean that Lawrence would have io serve all of the nine years in the penitentiary, as some of the sentences ran together and in a short time he was out again. Mr. Harrison, did not you and your depuiif agree with Lawrence that if he would enter all these pleas ai' (fuiltu you would recommend lihs release in tt short lime? And, didn't you do it? Mr. Harrison presented to and had allowed in the county court, against the county, a claim for NINE .'separate fees of $25.00 each, collecting the sum of §225.00 from the county for his services in winning this great victory for law enforcement, and in the defense of society. The record of this transaction is in Criminal Record - Book 3, at Pages 319, 320 and 321, in the Circuit Clerics office at Osceola, and the claim is No. 832; the record of its allowance by the county court is in County Couvl Record No. .13, at Page 198, in the office of the County Clerk at Osceola.
