[NEWARK, ARKANSAS, FRIDAY JANUARY 10, 1902. One Dollar Per Annum. a! FELLOW feeling. |le Rock Man TelLs of 5ome of the "Joys” of the News paper flan. laving ‘"done time" on a news paper I can appreciate how mis takes occur, and having a fellow feeling for the pencil pushers, 1 desire to go on record as saying that they get more undeserved cussi ugs to the square inch than anybody. As my wheels go buz zing round the idea occurs to me of the home newspaper man and how he is unappreciated. Jf lie does or if he doesn’t he is cussed. When a red faced youngster > nines bawling into the world he writes the "twelve pounder" up with a groat flourish, most tiir.es in good English and how happy the un happy father, by reason of being frightened to de..th, >s. When the sixth birthday arrives and the iittle one gives a party, he writes it up in a lurid and extravagant style. When the now developed youth graduates the same paper is expected to, and does, present a fine story of the eloquent, and brilliant valedictory delivered by the precocious youth and pre dicts a blight future for the son or daughter of “our folk w towns man.’1 \\ lien plain i ill Jones’ u iLghter makes tier formal bow l io Uchul parly is written up in l/ie hugest words Webster has in s'oek, with a tew French phrases thrown in. il.s language cannot be tvu ex.tavjgaui in describing Hie ilewuui ui Eilusia Uovviiiig Junes, the in; ;Ul ii ul, accomplished and tiighiv cultured daughter of ( ul. amt nis, William Wellington Jones (in-e plain l>iii.) ’1 he re t'eshnn nts were expensive and novel, consisting of canary birds and “frozen” icicles, with a French name. W hen the charm ing daughter or handsome youth man v, the newspaper m in is ( \ peeled to, and dues ditto, puff the bridegroom and each and every member of the wedding party. When Hill dies the nevvspapci man writes an obituary notice a yard long, enumerating all the viitues Hill posessed, oftentimes being teekless with the truth, and ommittiug to say anything about the virtues Bill did not posi s>. During Bill’s lifetime it was the newspaper min’s “duty” and plcasuie to make of Hill’s guests generals and colonels out of pri vates; prominent citizens out of unknown citizens ; beautiful girls out of—but no all girls are bt.uiti ful ; some may be mote so than others. It Bill had a hobby to ride hi* did it by using the. newspaper man and a Latin uome de plume that he did not 'understand, lie lambasted the water company, roasted the street car company the saloon men, etc., undei cover, owing to the kindness of the newspaper man. These are a few of the favors dispensed ■*e newspaper man. rrou*,.. luestsdi8 h‘w reWdrd,? 11 ls hi< deasure to listen to the ‘fj* J • Smith hand out Jled his s. then vr'll,;e tins : “Our home Ited sni dead uii.

The increase in the munlier of farms has been L.l^o.-j tKM) in t m years. Part of this in- | creas • has resulted from the s >t- | tlement of goverment lands, and | part from the braking up of the bonanza, farms of the previous I decade and the encroachment of the man with the plow on the holdings of the man with the cow It is a luippy reflection that all attempts to monopolize the arable soils of the country have failed, j land that the small farmer remains I the mainsta.v of the republic. \Vc are glad that the bononza system has failed, and that the farm i home has been a sue,-ess.

Mr, Whit taker estimates that it will cfist $250,000 to erect a proper build-| mg and as the lust legislature! appropriated only the measely j sum of $30,000 we will have to j provide ways and means to get the balance. Fifty cents each of the adult population will lie sutlic ient to meet all demands. One tenth of this class will doubtless never hear of the expo sition. Another tenth will learn of the affair, but not give a nickel, and another tenth may possibly give a little. The fourth tenth will have to be reached be fore an aver tire of fifty can be realized. The fifth tenth will pay their way and make up for the poverty of the fitst tenth, and the six'll will do the same for the second, while the remaining four tenths will be a big nianzin on | which to realize the amount! needed.

Milan Talks About World’s Fair Matters. Thomas \V. Milan, of Hot Springs, state manager of tho Arkansas exhibit at the St. Louis U orld's Fair, has taken charge of the active work of preparing the states exhibit, and lias given out the following address : lo the Citizens of Arkansas : In assuming the duties of the preparatory work of the Arkan sas exhibit of the World’s Fair I entertain no fears that the same can he in ide both ered’table and profitable to our citizens. 1 di sire to earnestly solicit the hearty co-operation of all our citizens, regardless of rank and station in life, in making tho dis play one that will demonstrate to every visitor at the coming expo sition that we make no vain boast, that we have within onr houndry lines resourced that would enable us to more com pletely live within ourselves with large export pos.-dbiliteis than any other state m the purchase, if not in the Union. No section of the Lonisina purchase is more richly endowed with building material than Ar kansas. Therefore, those to whom this great work has been intrusted contemplate a building constructed entirely from Arkan sas resources, w< rked out at home by our own Arkansas arti sans and mechanics. 1 ly following this plan we will avoid the rush at ftt. Louis, at the same time give employment to home labor and, by using the utmost economy with our limited means, together with the libeial assistance of those who have the material, the Arkansas building can be made second to none in point of interest regardless oftho fact that some of our sister states are preparing to spend large sums of money in the erec tion of theit state buildings* The exhibit from our several counties can be comprehensive besides being historic, fully rep resent the industrial, social, financial, commercial, education al, religious aiuF 'climatic condi tions, our inestimable wcath of mineral and forest lands, agricul tural advantages in its various branches and our transportation facilities. 1 roper provision will ho made for nil perishable products as well us vigilant caro taken to protect all those who wish their exhibits returned. In reference to the schools, the incontestable pi ogress which the cause of popular education is making in Arkansas is a subject for hearty congratulation among our citizens and for devout grati tude to Heaven. Our public, private and denominational schools throwing wide their doors to live hundred thousand students — one-third of the population of the state—are the tiue mints of wealth, and from these institutions will come dem 011strations of the indeepensable ness of education to worldly or maternal prosperity. Your generous support of these institutions, annually amounting to $1,5130,000, bears strong testi mony that the citizenship of this state i- alert to the tact that ail ignorant people not only is, but must be a poor people* Our tidiness of soil and climate, mine and factory, forest and stream logically belong to ourselves and children who must learn to uso these great lesourees intelligibly, for let who ever will sow the seed and reap the harvest, inteli genco will commune the oaiiquet. Our schools contain the best of Arkansas—the children . the boys and girls—then -.hall we not, with vour and their assistance, com bined with th.it of the seven thou sand loyal teachers make in St. Lou s in 11)03 such an educational exhibit as shall reflect credit up on the state muLHie great cause it represents? . '.Respectfully, m \h \y. Mu.an. erlttnd . csiLy,*i
