" / KANSAS CITY TO NEW ORLEANS The Gould System Will Eventually Have Through Line From Kansas City To New Orleans. A prominent official of the Iron Mountain, during a recent visit to Fort Smith, says the Times of that city, gave it out as his opinion that the Missouri Pacific interests will not stop the westside—river—valley line that is projected from Latour to New Orleans at the former place, but that it will be built into Memphis with all possible speed when the latter point is reached. The lower part of the line, between Trippe, Ark., and Concordia, La., is progressing nicely and indications are that it will be completed over the en tire distance before the fall of the present year. From Trippe to Latour, Ark., contracts are reported to have been let and the construction work will presumably be started within the next sixty days. On the White river line from Bates ville to the northwest, a large force of men and teams is at work and the company seems determined to push the work through beyond Buffalo City as first reported for a terminal point to Carthage, Webb City or Spring field, Mo., without pause. Springfield is irather a new rumored terminal point and it is thought that there is very little chance of the line being pushed through to that city on ac count of the fact that the Missouri Pa cific has no connecting line there and at both of the other cities important and valuable connections would be formed. STATE NEWS NOTES. Randolph county is probably the only county in the State that can boast of a woman mail earner. Joe Legate had carried the mail every day from Pitman to Maynard for several years until a few day3 ago, wnen he took sick and died. Since that time his plucky wife has made the trip just as her husband did, and is giving general satisfaction. * * * The Paragould Telephone Company workmen are putting in ’phones for all the business and many private houses of Piggott. Piggott now has connection with St. Louis and the outside word. * * * The smallpox situation is so much improved that the board of health has raised the general quarantine and things will resume their normal status in a few days. Greatly exaggerated reports on the situation have damaged the town.—Paragould Soliphone. * * * W. F. Bauer loaded an express re frigerator car—500 cases—Monday with berries, which he sold by the long distance ’phone to a Lincoln, Ne braska, firm'at $2.00 per case, on the track at Judsonia.—Judsonia Advance. REVIVAL AT THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH. It is safe to say the people of New port have never had a better oppor tunity to hear the scriptures fully ex plained than they now have, in the sermons being delivered by Mr. Cline. He is fearless in the presentation of the truth, and the large audiences that hear him from night to night, gladly show that the better class oi citizens appreciate the ptjv-sr and the simplicity of the Gospoi. “The Two Laws (jtf Pardon” will be presented tonigbL, and should be heard by ever#'man in town. ACTION POSTPONED. T'ne application of the attorney Gustave Jones for bail for the de fendant Rufus Johnson, charged with the murder of James Cole on May 10, came up before Judge F. D. Fulker son, Wednesday afternoon, upon the arrival of the circuit judge in this city. 1 No action was taken however and the attorneys for state and defense will bring the cause up before Judge Fulkerson Friday. The defendant is in the custody of the sheriff, being kept at the latter’s home and not in v-he county jaii. “UPPER TEN” DANCE. The young people of the “Upper Ten” crowd enjoyed a most delightful dance Wednesday evening at the beautiful home of Mr. and Mrs. T. D. Kinman, Sr. on Third Street. The music, furnished by a colored quartette upon cornet, guitar, violin and base violin proved an inspiration to the merry crowd of dancers, who enjoyed the diversion until a late hour. The affair was in honor of Miss Mor eene Kinman, for whom it was in tended as a surprise and Mr. and Mrs. T. D. Kinman, Sr. and Mr. and Mrs. T. D. Kinman Jr. received and joined heartily in the pleasantries of the evening. The guests present were Mesdames D. Terry, A. D. and Wm. Bailey; Misses Mary and Hilda Bailey, Jennie McCauley, Aubrey Arnold, Nellie Terry, Della Bernstein, Mae Smith, Marille Dillard; Messrs. Bennett Eg an, Edwin Carter, Tom Dillard, Robert Laird, Ed Sprigg, Henry Bragg, Homer Buford, Ed Mann and John Prewitt. COOMBS-ROSS. Mr. William Coombs of Centralia, Illinois, and Mrs. Savannah Ross, of this city, better known by her former name of Mrs. Savannah Hunter, were quietly married Wednesday evening at the home of John Q. Guynn in East Newport. Only a few friends were present to witness this celebration of nuptial vows performed by Rev. James H. Brooks of the Christian church. The wedded couple left Thursday morning for Centralia, Illinois, their future home, which the Independent hopes may ever be a happy one, blessed with contentment and sunshine. RAILROAD RUMBLINGS. News from the construction work of the Missouri Pacific railroad up White river indicates that grading is in pro gress within ten miles of Buffalo City. The contract for the last block into Buffalo City has been let and the en gineers say that trains will be running into Buffalo City by November, while another sixty days will probably elapse before regular shipments will be received by the road. ♦ * * The Choctaw Tuesday brought in the first cars to be run over the run showing the brand of the new owners, the Rock Island. The company’s roll ing stock is rapidly being repainted with the “Great Rock Island Route” diagram. The local office is not ex pected'to feel the effect of the new owner except that the name “Choc taw Route,” so well known in this section, will disappear for all time from the office of the road in Memphis and the last vestige of the old owner ship will disappear.—Memphis News CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION.
