Name of State of Arkansas Often Miscalled. 1$ Pronounced as Though Spelled An kansaw, and Historical Authorities Grant That This Pronunciation Is the Only Correct One. Since the appropriation for the new battleship Arkansas appears likely to be authorized and plans are already under way for the construction of the huge fighting craft, it is time to give the world at large the true pronun- ciation of tho most often mispro- nounced name of any state in the union. From effete and erudite Bos' ton to the rough and uncouth Rock- ies, Arkansas is persistently miscalled Not from any malign intention, bul from sheer Ignorance. It is well, therefore, that the world know the Arkansas by its true nam« as well as by its lighting powers, and the true name is pronounced a« though spelled Arkansaw. Not only do historical authorities grant thai this pronunciation is the only correct one, but a resolution passed by th Arkansas legislature makes it tht only correct pronunciation.

The footpad now- adays Is but a despiaed worker by the side of the auto burglar. American suffragistB in England do not approve entirely of the strenu- ous British female methods. American women are unaccustomed to march for their rights via the Jail route. The professor who asserts that all children under 12 are liars evidently has been investigating children gov- erned by fear. The fearless child is no more a liar than is the fearless man or woman. According to the acting Turkish consul general In New York that coun- try within five years will be among the first of the cotton producers. That means a pretty radical change in b& lection of seeds.
