Quite a decided change and one that will be welcomed by the citizens of Mena has taken place in the Wells Fargo Express Co.

Cavett, who has been over crowded with official duties, has given up this department and Geo. McGovern, of Fort Madison, la., lias taken the position of- Express agent.

Mr. McGovern has held a position as route agent for the Welis-Fargo com pany for a number of years and stands in the estimation of that company as equal in ability to the agents in any of the large cities. He has located in Mena hoping to benefit his health and expects to take a lively interest in the growing of early fruit and vegetables for shipment. A system of free delivery of express will be inaugurated and first class ser vice given in the future. Wedding Announcement. Invitations were sent out Monday f \tr HaiTv rr Firman and Miss Ida V.

Boyer called at the Star office Money and left a piece of slate which i was taken from a quarry he and Capt. Todd are opening up east of Mena which is very* fine in quality. It pos sesses the uniform thickness and strength to be valuable. Messrs. Boyer and Todd have been at! the prospective quarry for over a week J and are positive that the quantity is iuexhaustible, They brought in with them Isi-ge pini-es over two feet square showing perfect formation and smooth surface. These gentlemen are making pre parations to put in machinery to de velop the property and will no doubt soon be prepared to put an excellent quality of slate roofing upon the mar- | ket. In many places in Polk county formations of slate crop out and it is therefore not surprising to know of the result of the work done by these gentlemen who have evidently* hit up on a superior quality of the forma tion.
