NEVADA COUNTY PICAYUNE
+• TWICE-A-WEEK, TUESDAY & FRIDAY Let Every Body Work For The Rail Road And The High School. Concerted Action Is What We Need. Get Busy. VOLUME 33 PRESCOTT, NEVADA COUNTY ARKANSAS, FRIDAY, JUNE 21, 1910. NUMBER 39 interubban among THE POSSIBILITIES w l. Wood. Jr., manager of the Texarkana Gas & Electric Company, will depart tonight for Chicago to attend a confer ee of members of the Dawes syndicate, owners of the local miblic utilities company. Mr. Wood would not state the nature of the'conference but said busi ness of great importance to Tex arkana would be discussed. When questioned the manager of the Texarkana Gas & Electric Company expressed himself as being in favor of the interuaban electric line between Texarkana and Hope, as hoped for by Judge Conway at the Booster’s Club mass meeting Friday night. Mr Wood went Judge Conway one better and stated that an electric railway connecting this city with Hope and Hot Springs would be a paying proposition and would result in more profit for the owners than a short line between this city and Hope. “With this great amount of booming being done for Arkan sas lands, an interurban joining Texarkana and Hot Springs would be a great builder for this section of the country and would, in my opinion, be a paying piece of railroad property. While there is no immediate prospect for such a line you can state that the Dawes syndicate would favor such an enterprise and would probably be willing to finance the proposition if it re ceived the proper encourage Mr. Wood stated to The Tex-! arkanian that he will bring this ; matter up before the Dawes syndicate and have an investiga tion made of the possibilities of such an interurban electric rail- j way.-The Texarkanian.

The seal was surreptitiously i removed from the office of the secretary of state and is now de clared to be in the rooms of Gov ernor C. N. Haskell at the Lee, Huckins hotel in Oklahoma City. Jane Haskell, the 17-year-old daughter of Governor Haskell, was hooted and stoned from the streets of Guthrie Saturday night when she cheered for Oklahoma City, and was forced to fiea to the governor’s rooms in the Royal Hotel with her escort. Possession of the state seal meant the first step for victory. At 1 o’clock an automobile left a first street garage of Oklahoma City with one passenger, W. B. Anthony, private secretary to the governor. The drive of 70 miles was made to Guthrie and return in a little more than two hours in the darkness. The seal was in the office of the secretary of state. A JOKE ON THE EDITOR A joke on an editor who went one evening to report a party at a home recently blessed with a new baby. He was met by the hostess at the door and after the usual salutations he asked after the baby’s health. The lady, who was quiet deaf and suffering A,’ith grip, thought he was ask ing after her cold, answered that although she usually had one every winter, this was the worse one she had ever had; it kept her awake at night a great deal and at first confined her to her bed. Then noticing that the newspaper man was getting nervous she said that she could tell by his looks that he was go ing to have one just like it and asked him to go in and sit down. — Exchange. VV. A.

He is a mighty poor singer, having a hoarse voice, caused by getting so many frogs in his neck. He likes water and carries a toy balloon in his stomach to keep from sinking. The duck has only two legs and they are so far back on his running gears that they came near missing his body. “Some ducks, when they get big have curls on their tails ano are called drakes. Drakes don’t have to set or hatch, but just loaf and go swimming and eat anything in sight. If 1 was to be a duck I would rather be a drake.”—Spare Moments. Prof. E. B.
