THE CLAY CITY TIMES J. E. Burgher, Publisher. - V.'e are Here to Help Clay City, the Surrounding Country and Ourselves. PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY VOL. XXVI. , CLAY CITY. KV.. THURSDAY, JfOVEMHKU 17, J02J. KO. 40 Clay City Man Gels Large Business E. B. McGlone and J. B. Peers, recently of Shrieveport, La., have uurchased a large automobile (tpnke plant at Tine lJluff. Ark. The local paper published the following report of the purchase : The new owners have assumed control of the plant, it was an nonnced last night, and likewise J have bought heavy tracts of hick ory stumpage in this section, and will immediately bring the mill to full capacity, of more than 150 men. The olant will operate under the linn name of Peers and Mc Glone. J. 13. Peers and K. B McGlone will make their resi dence in Piue Hliiif. Last year in nine months this factory, turned out more than $500,000 worth of spokes for au tomobiles. Buick, Dort, Oak land and other makers of auto, mobiles, controlled by General Motors, were almost exclusively supplied from I'ine Bluff. Peers and McGlone, it was an nounced last night, have orders for spokes from northern auto manufacturers on their books which will necessitate at once a resumption to full capacity. Buys Small Bunch of Cattle Walter Ficklin, of Moutgom. ery county, bought this week of S. L. Wetherholt, Arch Snowden and Corda Powell a small bunch of yearling steers, averaging 650 pounds at 4 and 4 cents. Cattle sales are very dull this year. It does not pay to raise them. Far mers should sell all their calves for veal and handle only dairy cattle if they expect any returns for their labor. Turkeys High t The turkey crop is certainly bringing satisfactory prices. They are thirty cents per pound on foot here. This is as high as they have ever sold in years be fore. The farmer who has raised poultry and dairy products this year and has had no hired help, has gotten pay for his labor this time, that labor has gone down, but those that had live stock and crops have lost. June in Florida A letter from our good friend, W. II. Swango, at Miami, Fla., says it is Juno always in his sec tion of tho Gtate where he moved one year ago.

They say Mr Eaton was getting along real nice ly when they left him, with hopes for his recovery. Mr." and Mrs J. II. O'liear, of Winchester, the latter Mr. Eaton's sister, also went over to be with him a few days, aud they, too, have return ed. McGuire's Majority The Times, was not correctly informed last week when it gave McGuire's majority for Repre sentative in this county at 111 votes. His correct majority in Powell is 10 votes. Wolfe went for McGuire by 185 votes which when added to the 10 majority in Powell elects the Democratic nominee by 105 majority.

Tobacco Pool Perfected Burley tobacco growers o f Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio have formed a pool of their 1021 crop to insure correct prices. In the final report we see Powell county has signed up for 00,000 pounds which is more tobaceo than the Times thought was grown in the county.
