Dr. W. S. Smith of Paragould
| was here Friday evening en
route to Eight Mile on a visit to
j his former home. Dr. Smith re
; ports business in Paragould al
■ most paralyzed as a result of a
| strike in all the manufacturing
t plants of the city. The question
involved in the strike is a recog
nition of the union, demanded by
the coopers and refused by the
manufacturers. The merchants
as a rule have sided with the
latter and the other unions of
laborers with the former. All
the mills have been shut down
and the outcome of the struggle
may be their removal from Par
agould.

would have cost under the old
! system $434-74. at the rate of 11
: cents a meal. The average cost
to the city was 7.3 cents. The
net gain for the four months the
system has been in operation are
as follows: July $103.67; Au
gust $112.88; September $133.

Letter to Mr. F. H. Stucker.
Newport, Ark.:
’ Dear Sir: “It costs as much
I to put on poor paint as good”—
a common saying and true—it
costs much more to put on poor
paint; more gallons.
Poor paint is paint and bar
ytes or paint and sand or paint
and lime or paint and chalk or
paint and benzine or paint and
water; these are the usual
cheats; there are others.
It takes more gallons of
paint-and-a-cheat than of honest
paint; and the cost of the la
bor of painting is so much a gal
lon—one gallon costs as much as
nnAflipr for labor.
This is the way to reckon
your costs for this year; but
how about next year?
Paint Devoe, and next year
costs nothing; year after next
the same; the same for several
years.
Paint anything else, and your
costs recur according to what
you paint with. Some of the
mixtures wear one year; some
two; some three.
It costs twice, three times,
four times, five times, as much
to paint with a cheat as to paint
with Devoe.
Yours truly,
F. W. Devoe & Co.
New York and Chicago.
