It is probably true that in years of • good yields und good prices tlie most profitable crop most Arkansas farmers can grow, particularly on lands such as . - we have in Mississippi county, is cotton. Certainly it is true that if all our farm;..'. ers started growing fruits and vegetables for tho market, prices would be •: forced down below the profit level. '.-•• But the mosc imijortant truth of nil, .'' and one that cannot be emphasised loo often, is that fruits, vegetables, feed • : crops and livestock can be successfully ''••'• and economically grown in Arkansas, •'... and that with market conditions and weather conditions beyond 'his control ;-. the farm?)' who puts all his 1 eggs-iii'lhe. V. cotton basket is running a serious and - : unnecessary risk of self destruction. You cannot break a farmer who • .grows his own food and feed. ";•: Neither man nor beast can eat col- . ton, and when tho crop cannot be sold • -for enough to pay the debt incurred in ~ making it the man without other resources is simply out of luck. His ; :'neighbor with a barn full of .fectl,' u '•'smokehouse' 1 full of meat, and a winter's . supply of cannsd goods :uid rout vege- '', tables, may not be getting rich very fast, but he and his family are enjoying a good living and have tlie best chance of getting a real cash profit out of cotton or any other cash crops. « few hundred dollars more than is pcr- mitk'd. Tlu .state's corrupt pvaclke M, insofar as it imposes a limit uiwn the campaign expenditures of candidates, is a big joke. Kvurybody knows that many limes the ?5,000 limit WHS spent in behalf of bolh Harvey Paniell and Brooks Hays. There is no way of ascertaining, 'to say nothing of limiting, Hie amount of money Hint a candidate's friends may spend in his behalf. That makes a limit OP. the amount a candidate may spend in his own behalf foolish and meaningless. It makes evasion of the limit an easy mailer. Anyone with a mind to violate either tho spirit or the letter of Hie law can do so with impunity. The governor has been caught in an appavent violation simply because that violation, if such it WHS, was inadvertent. \Vo hear a good deal days about tho abuse oi' money in political campaigns, and undoubtedly there arc serious wrongs lliat ought to be slopped. Rut'it is thu improper use of money, not the use of if in large ainounl.s, that is destructive of good government. Candidates and illicit 1 campaign organisa- tions ought lo be required to submit detailed statements of contributions and expenditures. If the people know where the campaign funds come from and what they are used for they will be in possession of information that will be of. considerably more vnhiti in keeping the governmental structure a free and democratic institution than any limit that may be imposciUupon expenditures.

Evaporated milk seems to keep almost IndcllDllcly when put up in scaled cans. When Ihc evaporated product U mixed with an equal amount of water, a milk becomes available which Is u little more concentrated than the fresh mixed milk from many cows and healing; It Is to all Intents and purposes otherwise about Ihe same. It has been urijcd that evaporated milk Is more digestible than fiesh milk Ijecatise of the finely divided form of the fat globules. Studies of the various forms of evaporated milk indicate that It is about the same as tolled milk. Such -vitamin C as'lhe milk con- lalns appears lo be complclcly destroyed, but the other vllamins are not affected. Since milk is not in any seme ol the word at any lime a rich source of vitamin C, llsls should not interfere will) llic use of this milk product, it lias long been customary to ndd orange juice, tomalo juice, and various other fruit, juices to the diet of even the young infant In older to provide suflicient amounts of vitamin C. Prom tlie polnl of view of germ safely, evaporated mills is an exceedingly good product. Man authorities arc convinced that I is the most suitable form of mill, available for feeding most Infants For many years tills product has been used In infant feeding. 1 should not be confused with cerlah condensed milks to which larg< amounts of sugar have been addK and which therefore does not rep resent the equivalent of cow's milk, j It Is found that infants fed o'. sweetened condensed milk may Increase rapidly in weight, but llicir flesh is flabby and their condition in general not as good as that ol Infants fed with proper formulas made witli milk as ft basis. Dependability in the Air Lines Stunt flyers and inexperienced barnstormers continue to add to the total of aviation's fatalities; meanwhile the established commercial concerns prove with cold records that the hazards of (lying can be jjrently overestimated. During the month of August, National Air Transport completed 100 |>er cent of its scheduled 2M,0!)2 miles of commercial flight—a really immzing record. This extensive mileage included air mail and air express service between New York, Chicago, Kansas City and Dallas, with a gruut (leiU of night flying thrown in. That record is one of which commercial aviation can be pround. A few more like it and tho most skeptical ought to ho convinced that commercial aviation lias proven its dependability beyond'-a doubt.

NKA Service Writer WASHINGTON—Tills Is not exactly one of the Anti-Saloon League's best years. Without walling for Ihe November elections, it can ittready be said now that the primaries arc over that the drys have not made any appreciable political gains • and have suffered considerable loss. The league still will p ho!d larije majorities in Congress after the eltcllon but apparently there Is going to lie n real reduction of those ir.ajoritles tor the first lime since Congress cnaetccl prohlbilion. Increasing aggressiveness of the wetc is reflecting itself both In the attitude of candidates for office and In llic actions of the voters. All tills synchronizes with rcail^j ation in Wnshlngton that the league has lost much of its iwlltical mlghl In dealing wllh Hie federal govern 1 ? I ment.

Jr.. made a daring al- tempt to corner the gold market. "Black Friday" Is the name given the two disastrous days lhat followed. The Flsk ring had purchased about $00.000,000 in gold, agreeing lo pay ,$Ki.OOO.OOO in currency. Ttie transactions were in full swing, with gold hilling 160, when Ihe United States government telegraphed to sell 51,000,000 worth cf the metal. Instantly ihe gold fell to 140 and to 133 and rtiully IJicre were no buyers at. uny price. . A panic followed, aftecUn-; business in tlie United Stales and disrupting International trade. Tnc men who engineered the deals continued to settle transactions which they profited, but numerous nient of the deals in which they suffered losses. While no definite figures were available, it wan estimated lliat the top is made of soft wood like pine gold clique's profits wcr; about $12,000,000 on transactions they were willing to admit ami 520.000,000 on transactions which they refused to acknowledge or admit.
