WALLER ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT MANAGER DEAD I George C. Naylor, business manager of the Arkansas Demo crat, died suddenly at his home, 3100 High street, at 4:45 p. m. yesterday. He was stricken with paralysis at 1:30 while sit ting in his office, and very soon after those present had hurried to his assistance he was uncon scious, He was removed to a lounge in the office and medical attention hastily summoned From the first, however, it was apparent that he could not re cover, as the stroke was most profound, involving his entiie left side. He had never fully recovered from the effects of an other stroke, on the right side, about six years ago, and the sec ond was not unexpected. Several physicians attended him, doing all that was within the power of man to do to relieve the impending approach of death. Soon after he was stricken, he was removed to his home in an ambulance, and surrounded by the menbers of his family he ex pired at 4:45 o’clock. He never regained conscious ness after the first stroke be numbed the brain, and de ith came without his being able to utter a word of farewell to his loved ones, or even to recognize them through eyes already glaz ed with the damps of death. His last conscious effort was <x pres sure of the hand of his eldest son, and pointing to his head as he lay upon the couch in the ci lice, dicating that he must have realized what had happened. The end came peacefully and without conscious pain the soul winged its flight beyond the misty por tals to the beautiful beyond.

BUFFALO BILL TO RETIRE Considerable interest has been aroused in this vicinity through the announced appearance of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West and Pawnee Bill’s Far East at Cam den, Nov. 17th. Col. Wm. F. Cody, the original and only “Buffalo Bill,” travels with the big exhibition and positively ap pears at every performance, rain or shine, but this will be his farewell appearance in this section as he is soon to retire. Arrangements have been made with the railroad officials to run excursions at special rates from the various stations along tne line and there will be special provisions for the accommoda tion of those who wish to visit the exhibition. To the small boy and grown-up “Buffalo Bill’, will be the chief attraction, for nis fame is not dimmed by the years which have elapsed since he helped write the story of the West through his heroic deeds. One of the principal contests of the red men, in which he took active part, will he pictured in the open-air melodrama. The Battle of Summit Springs an engagement in miniature intro ducing more than one hundred Indians and as manv cavalry men and soldiers. Contrasted with this scene will be an Orien tal spectacle which will picture che gorgeous beauties of the Far East its pageantry and people, its pleasures and pastimes, and its strange costomes ana customs. Turning again to American his tory, there will be an Attack Upon an Emigrant Train and A Holiday at “T-E” Ranch. Rossi’s Musical Elephants will be a particular feature of the Far Eist scene, and as an individual feature of the Wild West section of the exhibition Ray Thomp son’s Trained Western Range Horses will be shown in feats of grace and equine skill. Sharp shooting by Johnny Baker will be a particular attractive feature and a bunch of bucking bronchos will furnish the principal comedy element of a truly exhilarating and strenuous exhibition.

REXfiL CONVENTION AT BOSTON In speaking of this convention a Boston writer says: “The most important conven tion of its kind ever held in the East, if not in the country, end ed here last night when more than 1,830 stockholders of the United Drug Company, and some 600 ladies, members of their families, stood in the immense enclosure of the Boston Arena and united their voices in the chorus of Auld Lang Syne as a finale to the annual banquet It made an impressive sight. The magnitude of everything connected with the banquet can not b adequately described for the plans were carried out on a scale commensurate with what the convention represented, a gathering of the leading drug gists from every section of the North American continent." Among tne stockholders in this great business enterprise, is J. W. Baker w o has l>een in the drug business in Prescott for sever,d years and who has made a reputation among the business men of this section, as well as among his customers, as a straight business man, of which he is justly proud; therefore he idas strength to the company imong his hundred >( customers and friends. As a stockholder and represen tative of the company in Pres cott, he sells the Rexal Remedies and guarantees all of them to do just what is claimed for them. This, with the backing of such a strong company, will satisfy the most incredulous that the gu ar an ree of the company and Mr. Baker is just what they need to the splendid medicines manu factured and sold by the co • - pany and John W. Baker, and to the patrons of Mr. Baker, who lave known and dealt with him so long, it means that the Rexall Remedies will do just wnat is claimed for them. Drs. Guthrie and Buchanan lave offices now in the McDaniel hardware building up stairs. Dr. York will be located in the same building. One week from today until election day.
