Newport won the second game of the series with Prescott Tues day afternoon by a score of 13 to 8, and a double header is on for this afternoon. Tuesday’s game was a pretty exhibition and the attendance was nearly as large as on the opening day. The pair of shoes to be given by the Bailey Mercantile Com pany for the first home run still dangles before the vision of every man with the stick, and in the double-header closing the series to be playe’d this afternoon is apt to be brought down. The battery for Newport was Bandy and Austell; Prescott, Northern and Shackelford. Umpires—Kinman and Mon crief.

Little Rock, July 25.—The bricklayers on the new building were out on a strike yesterday. The question of wages and hours of work is the cause of the trouble. W. R. Casey, the con tractor, says he will at once bring suit against the officers of phe union under the Logan anti ' ' trust law\ He declares that the union is nothing more nor less than a combine to control the price of labor and the conditions under which it may be controlled.

These quotations are only an index of the comment created and the distribution of 7,000 copies over the country should advertise Newport, Jackson county and this section of Ar kansas in a manner that must for years to come have favorable fruitage in turning immigration and capital this way.

The anniversary number of the Newport Independent has been received and it is unqualifiedly the best paper of the kind the writer has seen, both as to con tents and illustrations. The spe-j cial edition of the Republican was deemed the best thing of the kind issued, but the Independent is cheerfully accorded first place. —Yellville Republican. Will Be Appreciated.

Index. —- j Knock From Brother Knocker. The magazine edition of the Newport Independent does not do us justice. There can nothing j be said as to the mechanical work, j as it was turned out by one of the best printing establishments; in St. Louis. It is with the illustra-1 tions that we can criticize, and! I that is the work of the two men who ca. issed the city. They are small and poorly executed, some of which had better been omitted. Newport and vicinity i deserves a belter exposition of its many advantages.- Newport News. Value Can't Be Overestimated. We tine among our exchanges this week a special magazine edition of the Newport Independ ent, published by Percy Van Dyke (formerly of Marshall), at Newport* Ark. The paper is a most creditable production, the illustrations are numerous, and as a whole presents a picture of Newport and Jackson county, Arkansas, that make a splendid showing of this enterprising community of the great South west. The value of the publica tion as an advertisement of the town and county in which it. is printed cannot be overestimated. -Marshall (Mo.) Democrat News. Congratulations AH Around. We are in receipt of the special magazine edition of the Newport (Ark.) Independent, edited by Percy Van Dyke, formerly of this county. It is illustrated throughout with half-tone cuts of handsome buildings, prom inent business men, scenes in the cotton fields and orchards of that county, which is rapidly coming to the front. The edition is one of the most creditable we have seen come from the South, and speaks louder than words for the enterprise of Newport, JackSm county and Percy Van Dyke, j Slater (Mo.) Rustler. Thank You, Brother Sandidge. One of the most creditable publications emenating from a public office we have ever seen is the “Newport and Jackson County Illustrated,” issued from the office of the Newport Inde pendent, of which Percy Van Dyke is editor. The Newport and Jackson County Illustrated is as creditable in its artistic make-up as it is in the write-up of the town. As a journalist Percy Van Dyke has won his spurs and is to the front with the best of them in Arkansas journalism. As a Marshall boy we are proud of him as a representative of our town in another state.—Marshall (Mo.) Progress. - ♦ ♦ — SPECIAL SALE ON LA DIES' HOSE.
