Mrs. W. D Cole Jr. Entertains.
The searon’s gayety opened
with an elegant reception given at
the pretty new home of Mrs. W.
D. Cole Jr. yesterday afternoon.
About fifty guests were present.
The parlor, library, and dining
hall were thrown together and in
each a touch of the artistic taste oi
the hostess was in evidence.
Palms and ferns appropriately
placed lent the touch of color
necessary to bring out the beauty
of the rich furnishings. From a
daintily appointed table punch
was served throughout the after
noon by Misses Lutie Stevenson
and Laura and Sallie Harton.
Music by the Misses Harton was a
pleasing feature of the afternoon.
Mrs. Cole was assisted in receiv
ing aud entertaining the guests
by Mesdames W. S. Hanner aud
W. D. Cole Sr., and although the
afternoon was very unfavorable
the large number of elegantly
dressed ladies who were present
evidenced the popularity of the
cnarming young nostess. a ae
lightful contest game was indulged
in, Mesdames Ligon and Wester
held and Miss Sallie Craig tying
for the prize. Miss Craig drew
the lucky number and was award
ed a handsome hand painted satin
sofa pillow, which Miss Nellie
Randell presented with |an appro
priate speech. An elegant two
course luncheon was daintily
served. The cream was especially
beautiful being served in the form
of American beauty roses.

incurred in works of charity.

“We have the best board in the
state," said State Auditor A. K.
Moore yesterday afternoon, in
speaking of the trustees ot the
state Normal School — and I)r.
Moore ought to know since he is a
member of thirteen other state
boards. “We never have any dis
agreements,” he continued, “but
work together harmoniously on
every proposition that comes before
us.” Other members of the board
who heard the statement agreed
with Dr. Moore, recalling the fact
that practically every vote taken
by the board since its organization
had been a unanimous one. When
the question of location was being
considered last summer there was
no dissension ajnong the board,
and when, a little later on it be
came known that Superintendent
Doyne would accept the presidency
of the institution he was so gen
erally regarded as the logical man
for the position that no one else
was hardly considered. It has
been thus tu every important mat- j
ter arising for consideration, and!
the Normal is peculiarly fortunate
: in possessing a board so harmoni
i ous as well as so throughly in sym
pathy with its work and enthusi
astic for its success.
At yesterday afternoon's meet
ing the board decided to make a
vigorous campaign for students for
the Normal. “We expect to have
at least 150 students here by
Christmas,” said Superintendent
Geo. B. Cook. “We shall send out
a large amount of advertising mat
ter setting forth the advantages of
the institution to the teachers and
school directors of the state. I be
lieve the Normal will be crowded
to its full capacity before the end
of the present session.”
Three Conway young men will

Daily Sells Fountain Pens.
J. J. Livingston, who conducts
a jewelry store on Front street,
stated to us this morning that since
he had advertised the $2.00 Parke
Fountain Pen in last Wednesday’s
Daily he has sold twelve of the
pens. Nearly all of the customers
call for the pen advertised in the
Daily. It will do the same for you.
Error in Advertisement.
An error occurred in Frauenthal
& Schwarz’ large advertisement in
our weekly edition issued this
morning. Instead of a cut price
of 35 pounds for $1 on nails, the
type made it read ”1 pound for
$ 1.00.

Manager Williams Gives Reasons Why
Farmers Should Patronize it.
It goes without question that
the Farmers’ Union has proved it
self to he the farmer's friend. It
has been proved, beyond any
shadow of a doubt, that this organ
ization has proven the power to
control and regulate to a very large
extent, the price of cotton. Much
has already been done even dur
ing the brief existence of this or
ganization, in raising the price of
cotton above the five and six cent
mark, and the farmers of Faulkner
county have not failed to reap
their share of the benefits.
The price adopted by the union
for holding cotton and storing it in
the local warehouses is proving a
marked success. It is true that
many obstacles had to be overcome
in working out the details of this
plan, but each year's experience
but serves to weed out these diffi
culties, thereby enabling us to
handle your custom in a very sat
isfactory manner at the lowest pos
sible cost to the depositor. The
entire cost for storing your cotton
this season—including both stor
age fees and insurance—will not
exceed two dollars and sixty cents
(£2.60) per bale for the entire
period of twelve months. The
outlook for a splendid season is
certainly most encouraging. Al
though our entire cotton belt has
been very much damaged by the
blighting effect of that awful finan
cial panic which has swept our
whole country during the past
year the price of cotton still holds
good, but the panic is now num
bered among the things of the past
and it is our duty to come close to
gether aud wage a stronger fight
than ever before. Is this not a
time above all times, lor every
loyal member of the Farmers’ Un
ion of Faulkner county to show
his colors and not make the fatal
mistake of throwing his cotton on
the market regardless of price,
which course will only tend to
demoralize and destroy the splen
did work that has thus far been
done? If the ruling price is not
a fair and liberal one it is both
your privilege and your duty to de
posit your cotton in your loca
warehouse where it will be hand
led by the safest and soundest but
iness management. In storing
your cotton this season it will be
placed in tiers and so numbered
that the depositors can at any
time, and without difficulty, get
all or any part of their deposits.
It is our sincere purpose to prove
worthy of the responsible position
we occupy by doing everything
within our power to handle your
interest in a perfectly satisfactory
manner, and thus contrit ute our
full part towards making this the
banner season for the Farmers Un
ion of Faulkner county. To this
end we earnestly solicit your hearty
co-operation and support.
