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
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.
