The picnic on the Assembly grounds at Arcadia, July 4th, was not as large ly attended as had been hoped for. One probable reason therefor is that the affair was not sufficiently adver tised and many people who were not there would have been on hand if they had known anything about it. Flat River correspondence in Farm- ing ton News: "Rev. and Mrs. Chas.

The Lead Belt Arcadia Valley Base Ball Club expected to go to Poplar Bluff next Sunday but the Bluffites have phoned that they can not put up the necessary guarantee of funds.

We can not tell you when the State Highwa y will be built Nor can ws tell yon when that incom parable roadway that is to take the place of Main street through Ironton will be a reality.

After letters of administration had been granted by the Probate Court on the estate ot the late Wm. G. Whit worth, of Arcadia, a research of the deceased's papers revealed the exist ence ot a will. The document was made in October, 1918, and provided that the testator's estate should go to his mother, Mrs. Drucilla Whit worth; in the event ot her death to two Bis ters, Miss Annie Whitworth ,and Mrs. Isabelle Campbell. The estate will probably inventory $10,000 or $12,000. Piedmont Journel-Banner: "Mrs. Lucinda Francis, wife of T. L.

In telling of a game of base ball be tween the Bismarck and Annapolis Clubs at Annapolis on July 4th the Bismarck Gazette says: "On Tues day the team went to Annapolis and ehnt out the miners 9 to 0. Up to the seventh inning the game was close, the score being 1 to 0. Some timely hitting by our boys with some errors by the Annapolis players allowed sev eral runs to cross, and the miners never had a look-in after this. War ren pitched for Bismarck and kept his hits scattered, besides being given flawless support. Bismarck had their batting clothes on and bit Slasher, the Annapolis pitcher, hard."
