DULANEY AT THE MENA C OUNTY UNION FAIR Polk County Fair Was Attended by Large Crowds—DuLaney Make Speech to Voters. From the Mena Star: Mena agricultural fair, quickly I organized ai >1 well conducted, was a thorough success in the opinion of every citizen and vicitor so far as heard from. The weather was ideal from start to finish. The attendance was not a record breaker, but was as large as could be expected at the busy season and when so short a prepara tion was considered. The practicularly gratifying devel opment of the fair was the standard of the exhibits. These are universal ly conceded to be superior to those of any fair in Mena, covering a period of 19 years. DuLaney Speaks. One of the main features of the Tuesday afternon program was an address by Hon. A. D. DuLaney, of Ashdown. Mr. DuLaney spoke from the band stand to a large crowd of farmers and cither citizens* Mr. Du Laney dwelt at some length on the value of community life and in this connection paid a glowing tribute to Influence local, county and state fairs, had in the direction. He said they had brought the farmer and Merchant, the producer and the cc*i Jtutuer lit closer touch, aud had gen orally improved the conditions of both classes. He said that the value of the exhibition of various products he had seen here at Mena’s agricul tural street fair could not be esti mated. Their effect will be as far reaching, not as an advertisement 01 the city, but as an evidence of the growth, prosperity and enterprise of the agricultural classes of the coun try. He said wo should spend mor» ntney for agricultural and horticul tural education. The stronge ;t and best arguments Mr. DuLaney made to his hearers was the statement that the fathers of the country should take their boys into partnership and give them an in terest in the farm—give him some ob ject in life. A boy without hope oi some kind of a reward is nec mucii better than a dumb nnimar. In fact the burden of Mr. UuLaney’s argu ment in this line was a plea to keep the boys at home. It. was a master ful speech and sank deep into the hearts of those who heard it.

Contractor II. W . Cardwell is hav ing constructed' a rock crusher at the M., D. and G. “Y”, which will crush tin' rock that will go into the con* structicn of the big city disposal plant. The rock crusher will be operated by steam power and wil have a capa city of something like five cars per day. . Leslie Judd has charge of the installation of the plant and will operate it. Mr. Cardwell is away this week looking for rock of the kind de sired. The disposal plant will be lo cated beyond the city limits an the °ast. side of town. Tlia forms for the big concrete res ervoir are nearing completion near the light plant. The reservoir wilt hold 150,000 gallons of water. The steel tank will hold 50,000 gallons, giving the plant a reserve supply of 200,000 ga'ions. The concrete reser voir will be cylindrical in shape, ex tending both beneath and above the ground and will be covered like a cis tern. Either of the three deep wells afford the purest of water and are not exhausted by continuous pumping by the big pumps. The city will have a water supply inexhaustible for all purposes, miring consuucuuu me pumping is being done temporarily with a gasoline engine. The meter shows that 286,000 gallons of water has already been used. Pressure Gauge. A most remarkable instrument is the pressure guage. It shows the amount of water in the tank with the amount of pressure at any minute or any hour of the 24. It has a paper dial like a clock. A new dial is plac ed on each day and the old one re moved for a record. The record is marked on the dia with red ink oppo site figures showing time and pres sure. The night of the fire the record shows that the first hose was turned on at about 10 minutes of 2 o'clock and that the la&t hose was cut off a about 25 minutes after 2. The pres sure during all this time is recorded, (t shows that it started at from 40 to 50 pounds, the tank being only half full, and run down toward the clcee. It would leave a permanent record of the carlessners of any pumper, who might let the water run low. The brickwork on the fire pump house and office has been completed. The water mains are being extended on the west side of town this week. The work will probably be completed and turned over to the city about the first of December. -o ASHDOWN SPECIAL DISTRICT School District Shows Improved Ein ncial Condition. County Treasurer W. W.
