Mr. Alexander's Record Mr. Alexander is entitled lo all tlic satisfaction li • can srcl out of the house resolution which gave him n vote of faith and confidence, lie ncwl.s somebody's faith and coiiliileiict.', and ul'U'i- what transpired in the closing days of the state Irgislaturo lie is nol likely to lind much of il at home. Ihe thing- that citizens of Blythe- villc and the Chickasawba district of iMisM'sippi county arc jjointf lo remember itboul Mr. Alexander's record in the 48th mineral assembly is that he is the man who is responsible for their being taxed to pay for somebody else's road'-. They will remember that he knowingly and delib.nitely, over the protests of his cotistiluenls, and in defiance of every rule of justice and fail- dealing, betrayed the trust minuted in him by a majority of the pcojil: of this county. While (he unjust division of turn- back funds, by which road districts in the south end of liie county will gvl all or most of Mississippi county's share of state money, is and will continue b be the chief issue so far as Mr. Alexander is concerned, an examination of the platform on which he was elected lo office lasl, fall in connection with his record at Little Koclt the past two moulds throws some additional light on the faithfulness with wdich he has served liU constituents. . Mr. Alexander's published platform of last, fall, and his legislative, record on its various planks, follows: "1. 1 favor the income lax law." Tlv: income tax was not an issue in Uie recent session of the legislature. "2. Better schools without increased taxes." • The legislature increased taxes without making any provision for hotter schools. If. Mr. Alexander's voice was raised to do anything about it il WES not heard here. "3. Bank jcuaranly law 1 introduced in 1929." A bad law which Jir. Alexander was .wise enough not to introduce again. "4. Rcappcinionmeiit of slate so as to give Mi-sis.sippi county her share of representation." On this issue vital to this county and eastern Arkansas Mr. Alexander did exactly nothing. "5. Absolute abolition of comity farm to private individuals." This was accomplished, so far us concerns Mississippi county, by Judge '/>. B. Harrison. The question was not raised in the legislature. "6. Amendment to auto law .so as to create Imrmony with acljoiliing states." Mr. . Alexander introduced and obtained passage in the house of a bill for this luirijoj-c. "7. Continuation of Martiiicau road law which 1 helped pass." Mr. Alexander's achievement nloug this line was chielly lo. impose upon the Chickasawba district of thi.s county a major portion of the burden' of paying for roads in the O.sceola district. "8. I favor a safe and sane salary law for (ho officers of MJssissipiii comity." Mr. Alexander obtain:d Ihe tabling of a salary law which, had passed the senate. A St|iiinl cil the Cotton Grower's Barometer Sliiilstlcs art the barurnc'.cr of ihe coltoii trade. forecaMlnj prlrc v.-rnllu-r. Everybody knows that the iiiuie cotton (lie world rulses. the every br,! L > cf It will bo worlli, anil the more cotton the world cairles over fruin one crop year liilo the next, the less elbow loom there will be In the market for the new crop. The other day the cotton Iraile barometer took a dip. when C. O, Moser, vice president of the American Cotton Co-operaiivc Association, predicted a. carry-over, as of July 31 next, of 8.7CO.OOO bales, and declared tlu/rc is more cotton in existence "I the pietenl time than can be sold. The nlcrt barometer watchers on UiC New Vork Collon Exchange ran no chances. Operations under way lor a rhc tame lo a standstill, and the innrkcl tooi; a reactionary linn. When a cotton broker or trailer fails to call the turn on future price trends, lie i^lill lias a chance to retrieve Uio situation without mp- plIiiK loss. When a collon grower puts nil his available furnls, extends his credit, anil invests a whole year's kvbor mid issu of kuul hi a co'.lon crop, lie has no chtuice lo .switch over If Ihe opeiation proves to be n profitlesi one. He musl abide by the decisions lie at planting time. —Arkansas Young Shibllng, lieavywclght. contender, used to be referred lo ns a down-anti-onlcr.

The brief speech of Justice Holmes on the occasion of his 90th birthday may ue justified in this rhyme, written many years ngo: "Solid men of Boston banislt Ions |»tations. Solid men of Boston make no long orations." The man who went through the wnr without a scratch now wears wool™ underwear e;ich winter. SIDE GLANCES By George 12 Clark lion Is not. usually advised as n I'CUine ir.;nsurc, but U to be -used ivlion there Is a certain history of exposure and evidence of .susceptl- Ijlllty. For the ether diseases there are no specific measures of prevention. In general, the cultivation of health by proper hygiene is the mosl healthful measure for vhe prevention of disease. If the child attends school In a community where reasonable car,? is taken to prevent exposure in school, and if the parents exercise Intelligence relative to the contacts made by the child outside of school hours, It is likely to be able to avoid much unnecessary Infection.
