On Tuesday's Ballot* Every qualilied voter in Mississippi county should go to the polk' Tuesday to cast a liallot for Proposed Constitutional Amendment No. 2C. the measure lo put teeth in tlic existing hut long di.sretfurded constitutional rci|iiircmen.l that the ineiubcrship of the Arkansas general assembly be reapporlioned every ten years on the basis of population. Thcro has boon no rea))poi-tionment since 1890—nearly 50 years—and as a result voting power .in the state legislature bear's no relationship at all to the distribution of population over the • stale. Mississippi county .suffers the greatest injustice ami the people of this county should vole as a unit to bring about a remedy. , This proposal has been under discussion for so long that it docs not' seem necessary to go into any detailed explanation of it. Its .adoption will work injustice to no county or section. It will simply insure equality in representation for ail the people of . • the slate. Voters at Tuesday's election will .also find four other proposals on the ballot. In brief they arc: Proposed Constitutional Amendment No. 22, adopt ion of which would permit prosecution of all criminal offenses by information liled by the prosecul-. ing attorney as well as by grand jury indictment. Its eft'ect would be to simplify and speed up the prosecution of criminal cases and to reduce iutho cost* of the criniiiial - courts. It •'has the rmlorscmcn'l of-the slate bar ^'association, of''Governor. Fulrell ami of Carl 'B. Uniley, Democratic nominee for governor. It should be adopted. Proposed Amendment No. 23, adoption of which would provide exemption from state general property taxation for homesleads'on the first ?t,000 of assessed valuation, 'v It \viia 1 sponsored by LI. Goy. Lee Caxort. It should be defeated. It would provide little tax relief to any homo owner and it might result in serious financial difficulties'for the state and for the schools. -' Proposed Initiated Act. No. 1, eu- a^tnient of which would, make mandatory the providing O f free text books for all.pupils in the common schools of Arkansas. This measure also was sponsored by Lt. Goi'. Cazort. We approve the purpose of this proposal but doubt the wisdom of enacting it MONDAY, OUT OUR WAY at; this ..limp., and in its present form because the money to curry it into ef- vfect \voiild liaye to'tome out of llio •common school fund, 'already inade- ,'quatc for the purposes for-which -it •< was intended. .

For the house here, lie says he's always admired Gran'dad and would '. consider it an honor to, through me. • He's a kind man, Kate!" Kate was too surprised to answer for a moment. Then she said, "Yes, he is kind—but he's even smarter (nan he's kind, Caroline. He's buying you. You're 30 years youn.r A -i- than he is. You're other desirable things, too •—prclly atid feminine and easily managed. Aren't yon "worth a thousand a year bonus, over and above your board and keep?" Caroline said in a gentle, lirccl voice, "We'll not be able to pay out, Kale. Every week we go in debt a, lilllc Deeper. Winter's corning on. We'll need com and food, and .warmer clolhes." "We can mako our old clothes do!" Kate answered sharply, "Are you tpo proud to wear pitches? We can eat plainer food! Caroline, we haven't begun to economize yet! We won't have to hum coal till the dead of winter. There arc old trees on the place that Zeke can cut. We'll get a man to help him, on shares. There's our fuel! And we've slill "got the order lor Je/i Howard's baked goods. There's several dollars cleared a week, right there!" Caroline was looking at her younger sister in : briijH relief.

I'll make you write it. The man over-persuaded you- last night. I'll not give him -another chance •t you. You're sort of weak willed, and yet you have «normous capacity for. self-sacrifice—" • '-.:• Caroline had reached for pen * and* paper.Y: "I'm- ready", to write. Can you stop scolding long enough to diclatc?" • ''Yes," said Kate. "Writs this, 'Dear Mr. Grayson: My answer to your proposal of marriage js "no." I appreciate the compliment you have paid mo, and I shall always be deeply grateful tw your Inclination to help my grandfather, but those feelings arc not enough for marriage.' Are you keeping up, Caroline?" "Yes, and I changed 'compliment' to 'honor.' Thai's kinder. Go ahead.". "All tight. . . 'Thirty years is too great a difference in • age. Somewhere, I am sure, there is a woman more suited to you and a man more suited to me. Let us try to find . them. Sincerely, Caroline Meed. 1 " 1 • •'•' * t * ' jf ATE lost no time. In half an hour she was leaning from her horse, pulling the letter into Mr. Grayson's hand. "It's from my sister, Mr. Grayson. . . . No, thank you, I won't slop. I'm in quite a hurry—" She rode' away and left him lingering the envelope in surprise. She thought, "I hope he doesn't read it till I'm out of sight. I hope he isn'.t too much broken up over it." No, Kate decided, she would not distress herself over Mr. Grayson. She had rescued Caroline from a Khe.stly mistake, and that closed the chapter. Somcr thing else must he done now. Something that required iriore courage than tossing a letter at Mr. Grayson. She touched Brown Boy with her crop and turned his ward home, but when they reached Rickety House she did not turn in. Her destination was two miles up the road. She came to the Hold farm and let herself and Brown Boy through the gate that led to the barn. There she found Mr. Hold, for whom, she was looking. She said to him, "Last year you wanted to buy my horse for your son. I told you I'd never sell him, but I've changed my mind." "Yeah," Mr. Hold remarked. "But I been thinkin' of a thoroughbred for Ralph. Man over near Lexington's tryin' to interest me." , Kate shook her head in disap- pre-val. "A thoroughbred costs a Ipt of money, Mr. Hold. .And then what've you: got? Just a fast stepper. Ralph ought to have a g.iilcd horse. He ought to have i ';!(! comfortable riding horse lin.J this one." * * * CHE rode Brown Boy up and down the lot, exhibiting his :S6veral gaits. Then she got of! "an'd held his head while Mr. Hold inspected him. The man:.asked, "How old's he, exactly?," j^j >,;•,•» .WTiirnirft!Sight years,,Mr..Hpld'.: Just a youngster." , : -r v j/ v > - ( t»-l 'Me an 1 you know eight years is no. youngster, Miss Kate," 1hc> farmer said with a laugh. "But he's a fine lookin' animal, at that." He took oft the saddle and ran his hand approvingly along the horse's glossy back from withers to croup; stooped and felt a slrong hind leg from heck to hoof. "How much are you siskin' for him?" "You otlercd me $400 last That was last year. Horse's older now and I'm harder up. If 1 put a lot of money in. a horse, Miss Kate, I'd buy n thoroughbred." "Will you give me $350?" Kale asked, ,.,. "Yes, I wiili" "Then write me a check right away," Kale urged, "before I change my m|nd. I'll leave the saddle and bridle here and pick them up some other time, I'll walk home." "You're sudden, ain't you?" Mr. Hold said with a laurfi. ">Vill you come in and sit with my wife white I write the cheek?" "No, thank you," Kale nn- swered. "I'll stay here with Brown Boy." But she did not look at the horse, or pet him. She stuck her hands in the pockets of her jacket and tried to recite a crnzy poem she had learned as a child, One of her shoulders rested < against the horse's warm side. Presently Mr. Hold came out wilh the check and she signed a ' receipt, holding the paper against , the barn door. He said, as she ; stalled oft, "It's a right smart walk for a hot day. Get on the ' horse and ride him home, Miss Kale, I'll send Ralph over for j him later." ; "No," Kale answered quickly. "Mo, I'd rather walk." She saw that Brown Boy had turned his head and was staring at her quizzically as she moved toward the gate. "Goodby to you, Mr. Hold. He's a horse that likes plenty of oals." "Sure," Mr. Hold replied good naturcdly. "He!s a big fellow. Eats his head off, I reckon." Kale paused again arid caMe back a few sleps. "You understand I wouldn't sell him to }usti anybody, Mr. Hold. Ralph's a nice hoy with, horses. I've watched him plowing." "Sure," the man repeated, patting Brown Boy's anxious head. "Sure. Ralph'll treat him fine, Miss Kate. He's a good rider. They'll get along." Kate was wearing a fixed smile. She lot herself through the lot gate and walked out on the dusty pike. She walked very rapidly and did not look back. She said aloud, beating the weeds with her crop, "I could stand it all right if there was .any way to make 'V him understani.vyh'y.,',1 did it— iJf She meant Brpw^Bpy. (To"B« ONE OUNCE OF OIL.
