"Joe Hess Day" Most people will lei) you Uwt you have to be pretty close-listed and hardhearted to get along- in the business world these days. If you lack those i charaelcris-Ucs, they say, you will end up holding an empty bag. Joe Ucss, whose parents brought him from Germany to Danville, Intl., when he 10 years old, operated thai way and he ended up as his friends said lie would/ Joe ran ;t .store in Danville. He always contributed when one of the town's organizations asked money, always was ready with a loan when an acquaintance came around with a hard luck story, nhvays gave credit when a family needed it. For many years it looked ;us if Joe would make out nil right, then things began to break bad. Many of his borrowers couldn't, or wouldn't, puy .him back. Joe's business was just about llouc in. Then what happened but that the good people of Danville rallied around, took over Joe's store and threw a "Joe J.Iess .Day." They sold socks in the store for ?5 and $10 n pair, and other merchandise at correspondingly ridiculous .high prices. They asked Joe's .debtor's to pay up—and threatened tVgo to go to court if they didn't. And now Joe Hess won't go hungry in his old .age. So t.hat .is how Joe Hess nvido the mistake ,of being .a good guy and a poor business man—and along the way made a great many friends, There -are some people who will'tell you [that •it is littler to have'a lot~oL,friends than to have a lol of money and a successful-business.

Louisiana ami Mississippi, the paper finds, received H large share ol Ihis huge Investment. Two factors—tax exemption laws and workmen's compensation act—resulted lu the loui- lion in [.otiliiinnn of H paper mill, costing many million:, of dollars. And. ironically enough, this mill will use Arkansas' raw materials, but wises and sulm-lcs and oilier advantages badly needed In Ihis slate will go to Louisiana. If Arkansas (toes not "lei Hie bars down" to new industries, by inviting mid cncoiirnglng llicir location In Hits slate, then Ihe least llmt- cmi be done would be to cease pcnaltylng the industries we now have with unreasonable restrictions and regulatory legislation. As the Hot Springs pa])cr says Tux Exemption Laws and a Workman's Compensation La\v might encourage lire localipn of new industries in Arkansas but personally we believe llicrc is still somclliing more imuovtnnt. And thai, is an "abundance" of political opportunists and obstructionists. •It te tcncnil knowlcdue outside the state ol Arkansas that business men and Industrialists) large and small, a're bulUdo;;cd, lhtcalcnc.d, ami intimidated every two years by Ihe slnlc legislature.

A certain Imluslriiilist wlio has industries in the three stales .says he had rather do business in Arkansas because the assessments arc lower, hence his taxes are less than in Mississippi and Louisiana.

The janitor will nail up the boxes and take care of the expressman." Mr. Tborvald said agreeably, but quite as if Derek's 'acquiescence had been a foregone conclusion. "Fine. That will simplify matters. ... Nice lo have mclyou,. Miss Maidwell," and started brisk- ly out of the room. * * $ JJILDEGARDE THORVALD lifted one eyebrow as if occupied wilh some secret amusement of her own, rose wilh supple, long-limbed grace, and strolled toward the door. Derek seized mutter swiftly the with moment to a '^leading smile, "It wouldn't have .done to •force it, darling— tactless and awkward. . . . Pi ease nerc . . . . I'll be back for .a few minutes at least. They.can' this-lo us." • "They seem to-^with .effortless ease," said .Constance thro.ugh "lips tense with the strain of smiling. As Derek -.followed.

"Oh, dear," breallied the tall girl, "aren't we all being rather— oh, well— sorry .you won't -come." She turned to collect her bcr.| longings from a table, hesitating for a perceptible moment over tjic business as if caught by an amusing idea; and then with a nod and .smile she went out and down the corridor. So that was Itiktcgardc Thor-: ya.ld— ,lhc girl Derek was lo spend weeks with in the exacting intimacy of artist and model. Derek had said that Ernest Thorvald was of Scandinavian origin. This daughter of his, though tall and lithe as a-Valkyrie,' was tawny rather than blond, with eyes and hair of -light brown shot wilh deep golden lights, and a golden skin, pulsing wilh a warm, rich glow— fragrant and lovely as sim-ripencd peach.

"A bit of luck at last," he cried, catching Constance to bim and laughing like v ,t mischievous schoolboy.

'Suddenly Constance- „..,„<..,„- liered IJildcgardc Thorvold's brief hesitation as she paused to collect her belongings—that amused, secret flicker of a smile in her eyes. . . . And in thai moment she hated the other glVl for, the impulsive kindness of the gesture that had sent Derek back to -her. "You needn't hunt at all," s!ie said clearly. "The glove is right there on the table. ' : 'Oh, well!" Dert^K released her reluctantly. "The ..sooner I run along, the sooner ,1'can get back. . . Wait here for me, darling."
