CORNELIUS VANDERBILT AS HE WORKS IN HIS MACHINE SIIOI*. Few wage earners work any harder than does young millionaire Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr. Unlike some other young men who have come into the inheritance of vast wealth. Cornelius Vanderbilt. Jr., is a man of strong principles and a firm believer in the nobility of labor. After his graduation from Yale uni versity the young man decided to equip himself with a thorough practi cal knowledge of every branch of rail road work. Donning a pair of overalls and jumper, he worked side by side with ordinary mechanics,spending two years’ time in the motive power and civil engineering department of the New York Central Railway. He is an expert mechanic, and has already perfected several inventions which have come into use as improve ments in railway equlppage. One of these inventions is a device for use on locomotives which has the effect of facilitating the removal of the fire hox from an engine, thus expediting the work of cleaning the fire box. Tn this picture Mr. Vanderbilt has on one of Fincks “Detroit-Special” No. 755 Coats and Finck’s “Detroit-Special” No. 15 Reversible Overall. All other "wage earners” are now asking for Finck’s “Detroit-Special” Reversible Overalls. Union Made, made In Detroit. For sale by all the leading dealers throughout the country.

Jerre South, the Democratic . medicine man of Baxter county, was in Little Rock recently, and while en gaged in a conversation with an East ern man who had only about a vreek’s acquaintance with the ways and man ners, the customs of Arkansans, was asked what were the attributes of a true Arkansan. “Well, stranger, I’ll tell you,” re sponded South, leaning back in his chair, hoisting both feet to the sum mit of a sample trunk and patriotical ly warming up to his theme. “The Arkansas citizen has all the sobriety of Kansas, the fearlessness of Texas, the sturdiness of Iowa, the frankness of Tennessee, the endurance of Min nesota, the thrift of Nebraska, the industry of Ohio, the conservative-! ness of Indiana, the energy of Illi- j nois, the incredulity of Missouri, the I sauvity of Mississippi, the versatility of Georgia, the chivalry of Kentucky and if these attributes don’t entitle the Arkansas citizen to all the cour tesies in the calendar of social ameni- ! ties, then in the language of Tom; Watson, I would like to know where am I at.” MANAGER UNDER ARREST. — The Duncan-Clarke minstrel com pany are temporarily stranded in Newport, owing to trouble with their manager, Kidd Berry, whom it seems | took at least one too many at Bates- ! ville Sunday and failed to reach here 1 with the other members of the com pany and also delayed the shipment of scenery and baggage. A warrant was sworn out for his ar rest here Sunday night on the charge J of embezzlement. He was taken in hand by Batesville officers and R. M.; Laird left on the local Monday to bring him in on the evening passen ger. It is thought probable that the case will be dismissed as soon as the manager is brought here and has time to sober up. The enagement at Morrilton has been cancelled. LOCAL ECHOES OF FIGHT. The Keel bill now before the legis lature for the elimination of Newport from the provisions of the three-mile district local option law, has revived argument for and against prohibition _ _ ___ ' < here. A petition is being circulated by R. T. Simmons, urging the passage of the bill and is Baid to already con tain the names of a large number of signers. ■ Rev. J. W. Smith informs the In dependent that at Sunday evening’s service, he took a rising vote on those opposed to the passage of the Keel bill and only fifteen remained seated* Capt. J. E. Wilraans, speaking as an individual and not representing the prohibitionists, said, that he would be willing to have the three-mile law so amended as to exclude Jacksonport from having a voice in the question as . ■ - to whethe- or not Newport^slioqld have licensed saloons. Other p-M&i tionists expressed themselves as of this opinion, but oppose strenuously the present Keel bill. CROWLEY’S RIDGE COAL FIND. Forrest City, Ark., March 29.—Mr. Montgomery, a very responsible and well-posted man, reports having lo cated a coal mine of a good quality of Arkansas coal eight miles east of here at the base of Crowley’s ridge, in the Ferguson neighborhood. He recently purchased the land from Squire N. B. Nelson, 160 acres at a nominal sum, after having held an option on it for some time, and had an expert to visit and inspect and they pronounce it good Arkansas coal. They have gone eight or ten feet and taken out a few tons and it proves fine. The people are growing deeply interested in the new discovery. * .
