Tho route east passes through the Peytonville neighborhood by the Bag garly, Chewning and Judd farms. It takes a circuit about the Fomby neighborhood in order to serve all those people, and returns as we un derstand it, ever the lower Peytonville road, coming back to town by the Jim Davis and Bishop farms on the out skirts of Ashdown. The western route will leave this city over the Pine Prairie rock road and at some point on it will turn west up the river to a po'nt beyond (Rich mond, where it will turn north to ward the thickly settled Arden coun try. It will come back to Ashdown over the Arden road. The direct road from Ashdown to Richmond continue to be served as at present by the star route.

WIN GO WAS HERE MONDAY Is Confident of a, Wilson Victory This Fall; Rack from Washington. Congressman Otis T. Wingo was in the city a few hours Monday while on his way to Murfreesboro, and spent the time visiting among his friends here. He has recently returned from 1 Washington since the closing session cf Congress. Mr. "Wingo is confident of a Wilson victory this fall. He stat ed that his Republican collegues in Congress freely admitted a. lack o. confidence. He says that the Hughe% campaign has been a frost and a dis appointment, he having failed to awake the enthusiasm of members cf his own party. He stated that a Hughes’ myth had been built up in the minds of the public, which was dissipated when the public came in contact with the real Hughes. It was soon found that the idol had feet ol clay, and was far from the super-ini' man that had been pictured. The:., again, the people of the north and east knew Wilson and knew what he stood for, knew he was honest and that he had courage. They have fail ed to find what Mr Hughes himsel; would have done in the many instanc es in which he had criticised Mr. Wil son. Mr. Wingo was glad to find that the people of this section with fair crops and good prices were getting some share in the general prosperity.
