TWO LICENSES ARE ISSUED TO WED SAME YOUNG LADY been all been out been as of of age, he Is he from a "Hot said the sort. the filled that on Another matrimonial romance de veloped yesterday at the court house when a marriage license was granted to a certain couple.' It appears that some weeks ago a license to wed was granted to a young man of this county who desired to con tract/marriage with a._young lady also of this section. There was noth ing thought of the matter at the time and the weeks have slowly passed by, but the minister's returns were never made on that license. Yesterday a young man applied for a license which was granted and the paper that means so much happiness to some folks was issued and no more notice taken of the transaction than' of any other ordinary license. But the romance in the matter came to light when Deputy Clerk Chamhers went to index the record and this couple's names had to be entered in the index. The index showed that a license to wed had been issued to another man and a lady of identically the same name and age as the lady in this case. Whether it is a case of simply du plicated names or means a romance Deputy Clerk Chambers copld not say, but he does say that he is inclined to believe it .is the same lady and that she has changed her mind as to the man. cess.

Of the two tracks, EsAex park was forced into bank ruptcy, while Oaklawn, Dan Stuart's famous half-million dollar plant, has been turned to more legitimate uijes as the headquarters of the Arkansas State Fair association. R. O. Schaefer, the youthful editor of the Daily Bulletin, who is largely responsible* for the accomplishment of these reforms, is but 22 years of age, and appears even younger. That he has the courage of his cpnvictions Is shown by the fact that once before he went to jail, editing his paper from behind the bars, rather than pay a fine imposed for contempt of courj. Little more than a year ago the "Hot Springs gang" was laughing up roariously at what was considered the harmless enthusiasm of a callow youth. Today the laughter has sub sided to a sickly grin, and is likely to vanish entirely. "It Is particularly gratifying to us," said Schaefer in an interview, "that the reform movement has been what might be termed a commercial suc Many prominent citizens arid some of the reform exponents, at that, actually believed that common de cency and honesty would kill the re sort. They believed that When the gamblers and wealthy members of the sporting element who formerly filled this city during the season are giveh the cold shoulder, that the city, depending as it does on the tourist patronage, would Buffer irreparable damage. Others,of more far-seeing judgment believed that thousands of respectable patrons were cess. winter "'"t TRY THE Classified Advertisements For the amount invested they yield the largest returns I Mb f Want of anything, here is the place to tell everybody.

As soon as the word went out that Hot Springs had been 'civil ized' a marked increase in the number of health seekers and the better class of tourists resulted, which has made the present summer season 20 per cent, ahead of what it ever was be fore." The Rev. W. T. Amis, Editor Schaef er's co-worker in the battle for reform, is now being boomed for Governor of Arkansas on the strength of the rep utation he has gained by fighting the "Hot Springs gang." "We will continue our fight till the last grafter is out of office or in the penitentiary and until the men who have stuffed ballot boxes with burlap and excelsior and stolen the citizens' ballots are punished." is the warlike declaration of the mllitaqt clergyman. Amis is also a young man, tGe.Hot Springs churph being his first 'pas torate. It is now generally admitted among the business men of Hot Springs that reform has been a good thing for the town. Many men who at first looked upon the reform crusade aB a disturb ing element that was likely to "hurt business" and "make capital timid" are now lined up in the reform ranks. Few would care now to return to the old regime, when Hot Springs, naked and unashamed,, flaunted Its sins be fore the world. Chance has been thrown from the pe destal Bhe so long occupied as the ruling dfeity of the Arkansas spa. The efforts of the reformers have shown that a town may be both prosperous and decent A martyrdom in Jail will only serve to add to the fame of the Hot Springs crusaders.
