He Tells of the Soil, Climate and Productions of the State of Arkansas. The following Interesting letter from Wlls Berry, recently appointed land commisslonerof the Arkansas Central railroad company, was written to T. W. Nichols: I arrived at Fort Smith last Satur- urday and went into the hands of a receiver in the person Governor Fishback (who lives here), who showed me the town and introduced me to her prominent citizens. Fort Smith is about the size of Logansport, and built In a beautiful woods, In fact the shadiest I ever saw, the Main street where all the business is located is 120 feet wide and paved from one end to the other, other streets are paved ana all with, brick made right here, they have just started a cement works here, the cement they claim is a Portland, equal to any in the U. S. But just listen 'till I tell you about the coal which underlies our road tor 40 miles. It is the finest in the world. It is entirely smokeless, you can get up on a high building and look over the town among all the furnaces and factories there Is not the faintest trace of smoke, and you can burn a hundred bushels and not one clinckerlsleft, every particle of It taurns up and leaves a pretty white ashes. This of itself Is a fortune for the people who get the coal lands. I think when It has been introduced on the railroads for fuel for passenger engines and known In St. Louis and other cities it will bring the highest price of any coal In the market. A few people along the line of our road are burning natural gas but it has not yet been found t& paying quantities, although but one well has been put down, This le tUe gret- est fruit country on earth, one man told me he had an orchard on his farm two miles from Fort Smith from which this year he sold 14,500 worth of apples and peaches. There is a 2?an here who came five years ago with a mule and cart and no money, he now has a fine farm and $14,000 in the bank, he made it on potatoes they grow two crops each year. The cotton yards near the depot are a sight to behold. They are picking cotton yet having commenced In September. Our road is a success or rather will be a succes* when completed, the best line In the state, through the very best country in Arkansas. The work is being pushed forward as fast as possible I will take charge of my office tomorrow. Being a frontier town you would naturally think Fort Smith a wild and wooly town, but not so, everybody goes to church. I have not seen a drunken man since I came, and they tell me that there has not been so much as a fist fight for a year. Drinking is very unpopular. I have been around with prominent people for neany a week and no6 one has asked me to take a drink; in fact the better class don't go in the saloon very often. The saloon license is 11,200 per year, and I think there are 2,528 saloons in the state. They tell me that on the first of January next all gambling must be stopped, not even dice being allowed. Many of the counties have local option and are extra dry. The east half of the line runs through fine pine and oak timber lands, which, it is said, can be purchased very cheap. I think there is great opportunities to make some money down in this beautiful valley. I have seen lots of sweet potatoes that weigh from eight to thirteen pounds apiece. We had a slight frost last night, but the weather Is warm and fine, the yards still being full of great rose bushes, bending over with Che finest roses I ever saw. It is semi-tropical and semi-metropolitan. A strange combination often meets one's eye who halls from the north; for instance, a cannon ball train on the railroad, an old stage coach, a farmer on a load of corn, a negro un a Load of cotton, a girl on a bicycle, an Indian on his broncho, and they all. seem to harmonize. There are several thousand colored people here. The othei evening while--out for a walk I saw some turkey; going to roost In a tree. I called to an old darkey and pointed to them. He laughed and said; "Capu deys allus safe in Fote Smifb." And business men tell me that is a fact: barns, coops and even residences are rarely locked and nothing is stolen: Fort Smith can boast of the best public school buildings of any town of its size in the United States. Many fine churches, residences and business blocks, and I believe it is destined to be the great city of the southwest. ADDITIONAL LOCALS. Auction all this week at Fair.

Smoke the Oolnutda cigar Those Dreadful Sores They Continued to Spread In Spite of Treatment fcut Now They are Healed -A Wonderful Work. ''For many years I have been a great sufferer with varicose veins on one ol my limbs. My foot and limb became dreadfully swollen. When I stood up I coold feel the blood rushing down the veins of this limb. One day I accidentally nit my foot against some object and a sore broke out Tvhich continued to spread and was exceedingly painful. I concluded I needed a blood purifier and I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla. In a short time these dreadful sores -which had caused me 30 much suffering, began to heal. I kept on faithfully with Hood's Sarsaparilla, and in a short time my limb was completely healed and the sores gave me no more pain. I cannot be too thankful for the wonderful work Hood's Sarsape- rilla, has done lor me." MBS. A.

MUELLER & RICHARDSON, "JIA.DAME SANS GENE." Is the best— in fact ffie One True Blood Purifier. HOOd'S Pills cure all lirer Uli. 36o«nS». Translated into English Means "Madam Don't Care"—l Great Comedy. There is an abandon In the words "don't care," as applied to Catherine Hubseher, the laundress In the play of "Madame Sans Geae" to be presented at Dolan's opera bouse tomorrow evening. In fact "Ssns Gene" translated Into Ecgllsh means '-don't care" and the play of that name Is a beautiful comedy embracing the moat Interesting period of French history. The plot Is laid In the-tlme just prior to, during and after the French revolution, and during the days of the first empire, when the great Napoleon reigned supreme as emperor of the French. Catherine Hubscher, the washerwoman, was patronized by the officers of the King, among whom was the then unknown Corslcan, Napoleon Bonaparte, whose friendship in after life prored a great boon to the humble girl, who even at that early date was noted for Indifference and refreshing independence which woa her the sobriquet of Madame Sans Gene. To study the woman of the people, one can have no better chance than to see Miss Kathryn Kldder's performance of Madame Sans Gene, and to get a correct tiew and perfect understanding of the stirring times of Napoleon I, this great comedy offers every opportunity. Aside from presenting perfectly the events of that day, with all its noted characters represented by an elegant com-1 pany of players, all the scenes in the comedy are correct views of the localities and surroundings taken from the historical pictures in the Louvre. A. Striking Coincident The Lake View club at Lake Maxinkuckee was made up of eight Plymouth families that built a club house there many years ago and dwelt happily together. No deaths had occurred among the male members of the club until the past year, and in that time three—C. C. Buck, Joseph Westervelt and Judge Horace Corbin were called away without a premonition, heart disease being the cause. Hon. Daniel McDonald of the Plymouth Democrat, and a member of the club, philosophically observes: "But it is a good way to close one's earthly career, and the remaining members, without an exception, iope when the time comes that they may be permitted to shuffle off in the same way." L. of 13. A. B. Attention. All members of Lincoln Circle are earnestly requested to be present at tke regular meeting Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock.
