Thrifty \_J
the women are the money-savers
of the family. Men mean well
enough. They know the value
of having money in the bank,
but they haven’t the knack of
saving. They haven’t learned ^
the trick of making one dollar do
the work of two in buying, and
of laying the other dollar away
for the rainy day that may come.
We desire to encourage these
thrifty women, and this is our urgent
invitation to those who may desire
to open a bank account. Our officers
and employes will be glad at all
times to give any information that
may be desired in reference to the
banking business.

died then should be carried in the
same way now. With a Chamber of
Commerce working these things out!
there would be no freight congestion !
in this section.”
The speaker then told how the:
Chamber of Commerce could bring
factories, mills and other industries
to Newport, and presented a very op
timistic picture of Newport’s future.
The other selected speaker of the
evening was Gustave Jones, who
pledged his support to the movement,
remarking upon the fact that in 1872
his father had founded the city of
Newport, selling to a land company
several strips of city property at a
figure which now would not buy one
building lot. Mr. Jones told of pre
vious efforts that were made here to
form a working organization of bus
iness men, and explained the failure
of each. He told of lost opportunities,
o e of which was the failure of New
port to secure the location of a state
agricultural school, which was finally
secured by Jonesboro through the
latter’s business organization.
Following Mr. Jones’ talk the com-1
mittee which had made assessments,
was called forward and asked to total
up the financial pledges secured.
Within a few minutes it was ascer- j
tained that almost a total of $5,- j
000 had been received from responsi- !
ble parties, which included several j
voluntary subscriptions secured dur-1
ing the course of the meeting when
persons were asked to come forward
for the purpose of signing then
On motion the following organiza
tion committee was named by the
meeting: W. A. Billingsley, W. M.
Dunaway, M. A. Stevens, John E.
Williams. G. A. Hillhouse, O. M. Bow
en, Harry Grimes and A. T. Hubly.
Here followed a great deal of dis
cussion as to the manner in which
the organization should take effect,
there being some disagreement as to
legal steps necessary to incorpora
tion, etc. The meeting finally ended,
however, with the adoption of the
above named committee which is
charged with the responsibility of
working out the details to place the
organization on a sound, firm busi
ness basis.
At 7 o’clock Wednesday night, a
few minutes before the meeting con- j
vened, every whistle in town was
put in operation, marking the begin
ning of a new era of prosperity in
Newport. On account of the cold
weather not as many cars as had
been asked joined in the parade, but
the parade was a creditable one just
the same.
From this on, you may watch New
port grow and expand. We have the
pep, and we must continue to work in
unity and lose sight of individual
