Prescott, Ark., Thursday. Oct. 21 1909.
Number 38 WILL REBUILD I IN ARKADELPHIA The Ar adeldhia Milling Co. Will Rebuild the Roller Mills as Quickly as Possible. At a directors meeting. of the ArkadelphiaMilling Co., Monday j morning, it was decided that the Roller Mills would be rebuilt as quickly as possible. It was also definitely settled that the new ; mill is to be a brick, fire proof, building, and that it will be two and one-half times larger than the plant that was burned. Nothing but the latest and most improved machinery will be in gtalled, and when completed, it will be by far the finest flour mill in the state, and equal to any in the South. Several mill wrights. representing the manu factories of mill machinery were here yesterday submitting plans for the ne >v mill. This is certainly cheering news for our people, as this mill has ever been the pride of our little city, and the possibility of losing it was a sore subject to them, and we hope that there will be unanimous rejoicing over the fact that the mill is to be rebuilt. Now, the thing for our people to do is to join hands in boosting the mill and its product and make it the biggest thing in the conntry, —Siftings Herald. FOR HOG STEALIN6 Gum Ellison, of Parker Town ship. was brought to Prescott last week by W. T. Russell and Clint Martin and placed in jail to answer to the charge of hog stealing. It is charged that he killed a hog and a yearling that belonged to Mr. Russell and after taking part of each and cooking same and filling a much empty vacuum of his anatomy, left the balance in the woods to feed the vultures. It is thought that Gum is an idiot and very likely a subject for the lunatic asylum, rather than the penitentiary. It cost you nothing if we don’t •ell. Vaughan Realty Co. HON. D. J. NEILL FOR TARIFF Opinion of Former President of the Farmers Union on the Debate Between Mr. Bryan and Sen. Bailey Hon. D. J. Neill, former presi dent of th Farmer’s Union and now editor of the Co-operative, the official paper of the union, was asked a few days ago for his opinion on the free raw material debate between Mr. Bryan and Senator Bailey. He made reply as follows: The experience of a few years ago should be enough for the people of the Sonth. Under the operation of the Wilson bill we had free hides, free wool, etc. And the South was carried through the charnel house to the open grave. The people were bankrupted and the South lay bleeding at every pore. Do the friends of the South want to see the condition repeated again? More loyal men quit the Demo cratic party under the prevail condition than ever before. And for the same time being even rocked ribbed Texas was in jeopardy. If we must have free hides let us have free shoes. If we must have free wool, then let us have free clothes. The cotton of the South is free; why not have free cotton goods? If Colonel Bryan wants to do the country good, then let his missionary spirit turn northward where the seat of trouble lies. Senator Bailey is right and will be sustained by the people. D. L. Neill. The people of Nevada county are not surprised at any thing Dave Neill may say. He changes his politics about as often as the moon.
