Dairymen Suffer In the north Atlantic slate. 1 ;, below New England, drought losses arc reported mainly in pastures and consequent reduction of dairy- production. New York, for example, reports a considerable drying up of pasture lands, reduced milk production and resultant increase of daily costs. Tender vegetables aud late fruits aie now suffering. In Maryland, milk ' production has been cut 30 per cent by the drought, reports T. H. Symans, director of the extension service. In addition the total loss to fk-kl crops, market garden crop, tobacco and fruits is estimated nt 50 to 00 per cent of last year's production. Feed for the winter Is scarce, the young grass lias been killed, and the outlook for hay and pasture next year is discouraging. Symons adds. HE GETS THE ABVICi: MOOREHEAD.

Reynolds 520 Second St. Paragould, Arkansas DOUBLE COSTS In every division of construction and operation in the light and power industry costs have'doubled in the past 1G years. Taxes have more than 1 doubled.. in relation to revenues received. These increased costs have not been passed on to the consumer. Bcause of a steady improvement in the art of generating and distributing electricity, the cost to him has been reduced. In the lighting of his home, for example, he now uses lamps which have a lighting efficiency 65 per cent greater than the lamps of 1914. The prices of these lamps have been reduced materially under pre-war prices. In varying degree this is also true of other household .appliances. If all of these things are taken into consideration and added to the reduction in the cost of electric current itself, it may be said that the 1930 electric dollar is worth about four times the 1914 electric dollar Arkansas-Missouri Power Co.
