5 VO-. I, NO. 2. HUTTIG, ARKANSAS, SATURDAY, MAY, 11, 1907. PRICE, $1 PER YEAR CLOSING SCHOOL EXERCISES. Another Successful Year Closed for the llut t'g Public Schools. The Union church would not hold all the people who wished to attend the closing exercises of the Huttig public school on last Friday evening. The graduating class consisted of seven npembers of which num ber Miss Lydia Bradford was the only one from the common school course tue othersix being from the commercial department. They were Miss Beatrice Morrison and Messrs. James Gibson, W. S. Rich ardson, E. A. Woolley. Wm P. Bryant and Robert M. Baskin. The following program was ren derered and every number highly appreciated by the large audience. To make special mention in these columns would be a hard task as each graduate acquitted her or or himself with credit: 1. March . Overture I 2. Invocation Rev. J. F.McKenzie 3. Principal's Address J. J. Cox 4. "Flower Faries”—Fearis . Eva Campbell and Flora Cargill 5. "Our Deeds Are Our Memorials” and Salutatory James D.

McKenzie Benediction.. Rev. A. W. King Messrs W. A. Rider, F. W.Scott, A. E. Gulbreath and J. U. Brown acted as-judges to award a fine gold medal given by Prof. J. J. Cox to the pupil rendering the best oration and by Miss Margie Newby to the music pupil who had made the most marked advancement. The first medal was awarded Edgar L. Adams, who is certainly entitled to much credit for the work done when it is known that he worked at the planer each day and took the bookkeeping course at nights and mastered it. The medal given by Miss Newby was awarded to Miss Bonnie Bershen. The address to the class by County Examiner J. F. McKenzie was a strong one and if his advice is followed by the graduates they \^ill make no serious mistakes in life but should each make his or her mark in whatever vocation they choose. Much credit is due to Prof. J. J. Gox and his able assistants, Misses Nannie Gurl and Miggie Newby and Mrs. C. S. Watkins for the success of the exercises and also the suc cessful term of school of which they marked the closing. There are few towns the size of Huttig which can boast of as good a school building or as an efficient corps of teachers. Subscribe for The News. Union County Boy in Navy.

Yesterday afternoon, for the first time probably in the history of the state, a member of the house appeared on the floor of the Senete and spoke to the members while the members of the upper body were in session telling them just what he wanted in respect to a certain bill. The hero of the epi sode was Judge VanHook of Union Gounty, and, what is more to the point, he got what he wanted. Immediately after the noon re cess the Senate were considering the Abercrombie bill providing for the working pf convicts on the public roads or amendments were be'ffig sent up exempting counties and 32 had been exempted when Judge Van Hook entered the chamber and asked Senator Martin to exempt Union. The senator from Pope stated that he believed that Senator Goodwin wanted the co>>n ty exempted from the bill. Some one asked whether Senator Good win really wanted the county ex empted from the bill when the representative from the -county walked out into the middle of the floor and shouted: “I don’t care what Senator Good win wants, I want Union county out of the bill.” The senate was convulsed with laughter, but the exemption .was ordered as per request.—Arkansas Gazette, Tuesday May 7.

About 11:30 o’clock Tuesday night during one of the hardest nins which has visited this sec tion in some time about thirty feet of the reserve pond dam gave way ind the vast body of water with a roa,r rushed out flooding all the lower sections of town and com pletely demolishing one house in which a number of negroes were living and moving another occu pied by a number of Mexicans off its foundation. All the occupants of the wreck ed house were rescued with the aid of boats, two of which happen ed to be handy, with the exception of James Wilson who was probably struck by a timber or otherwise injured. His body was found about a half mile north of the break Wed nesday morning which gave an idea of the crest and current of the water. All the moulds and a large num ber of patterns were washed away from the foundry and all sidewalks crossings and loose timbers were carried northward or washed up against the railroad tracks. Water v/as about four feet deep in the office of Supplyman George Humphries and the foundation un der same was undermined, as was also one end of the machine shop store room. The water reached a depth of three feet in the engine room at the pow»r plant in a few minutes and cut out the lights which made work hard as the only light availa ble was that made by the burning lime house which was set on fire by slacking lime. The ice cream parlor, bakery, pool rooms and bowling alleys of P. W. Seaman & Son were flooded to a depth of several inches, but luckily not enough to overflow the bowling alleys which would have been a serions loss. V. G. Seaman had suffered an attack of heart trouble to which he is subject about an hour before the accident and was carried to the Union Ho tel by Homer Hall who was com pelled to wade water over waist deep. Warren Sorrells assisted Mrs. Seaman across the same dangerous p'ace. Drs. Rowland and Bailey's office was treated to about a foot of wa ter on the floors and a good part of the loading out track undermin ed besides considerable of the Louisiana & Pine Bluff and the Little Rock &i Monroe tracks. The machine shops, roundhouse and pump station all received a good mud bath but no serious damage resulted. The work or reconstructing the break was commenced Wednesday noon and will be pushed to com pletion as rapidly as possible and the entire dam materially strength ened to prevent a repetition of Tuesday night’s disaster.
