dred thousand acres will be planted
in rice in 1910 on the prairies o
Eastern Arkansas This is an increast
of more Ulan 100 per cent over the ac
reage planted in 1909 The figure,
given for the new vear are based on
a careful canvass of the main distric
but do not include some scattered
plantings to be made in outlying parts
of the probable rice area, where ex-
perimental work is being undertaken.
Figures on last year’s results show
an average yield for the whole district
of 74 bushels per acre, and an average
net profit to the grower slightly in
excess of 850 per acre.
There are six rice mills in operation
in the district, with a combined capac
itv of approximately 4,000 barrels in
twelve hours Preparations are being
made greatly to increase the milling
capacity by the time of the 1910 har-
Tile Washington entertainment a t

the patrons of the district. The pro-
gram consisted of songs and reel la-
tinos and was well prepared and de-
livered in an interesting manner.
Judge Whistler, of Kingfisher, was
present and made an Interesting
talk of about twenty minutes dura-
Some very good exhibitions of free
hand drawing, by the pupils, in col
ored crayon, was on the board. Among
the best specimens were a picture of
George Washington sitting on a horse
with a hat in his hand, by Frank
Helnen: a portrait of Washington, by
Ruth Foster and a picture of the Mt.
Veruon mansion, showing the ter-
races, by Newton Ford.
' $10.00 Hog Has Arrived
Those woo Oave oeeu predicting 810
per hundred weight for hogs have
seen their predictions come true.
Tuesday hogs sold on th^ St. Louis
market at *10 and at Indianapolis,

paid in the history of those two mar-j^ citie8 al0D(j tbe east 00ast.
kets. A steady advance was mane all | ilQ ,ig, hp lmends
during the mouth of L'ebruary and
there are good indications that the
price will continue to advauce. Those
who are in toucli with the situation
say that there is a big shortage of
hogs all over the country. Even the
general high price of ail kinds of feed
does not seem to have a bearisji effect
on the market.
