Bush About to *
Brought Into No
ti c e Again
We are reproducing a very in- i
teresting article about Benjamin
F. Bush who is soon to be
brought into notice again on ac
count of the large amount of
money spent by him and the con
templated spending of thous
ands more as receiver of the
Iron Mountain railway c o m
pany in its improvements. Mr.
Bush is especially interesting
to the people of this section of
Arkansas because of an acquaint
ance with him acquired while
he was general superintendent
of the coal mines at Denning
and other nearby places.
The following clipping is from
Everybody’s Magazine:
“Bush is the yougest of fifty
seven who is known in railroad
circles everywhere as the man
who pulled the Missouri Pacific
out of the hole. 'Way back in
1882 he started as a rodman on
the Northern Pacific. Later he
went in for coal, and emerged in
1903 as superintendent of coal
properties of the Missouri Pacific.
He had a short service as presi
dent in 1907-08 under the Gould
autocracy. In 1911 the Goulds
under the spur of danger, put
him really on the job, with full
Bush wrestled with the rail
road as his Puritan ancestors
had wrestled with the devil.
The first year he spent entirely
on the road. He was just forty
four days in his fine Turkey
carpeted president's offce. He
covered 90,000 miles—on con
struction trains, in the cabooses
of freights, in engine cabs, in
hand-cars, and on foot. His
working hours were—and often
still are—from 5 a. m. to 9 p. m.
Bush went out to see the facts.
He saw road beds made of fill
ings and gratings of sand which
cost $3.40 per oubic yard. He
made careful note of thousands
of spikes which he pulled out
with his hands. He saw freight
cars with yawning and leaking
tops, flat wheels and bad brakes.
He rode passenger trains which
never got in on time. He saw
discontent among men, the re
sults of years of czardom.
He went back. Whole blocks
of office force “shifted.” Sche
dules. rules, habits went into
the melting pot, rolling stock
and equipment by the millions
to the dump. The job is done
now. The Missouri Pacific has
saved six millions per year on its
operating cost; has cut down the
loss and damage account by a
million more. Over a million
dollars more business was done
last December at a transporta
tion cost of $73,000 less than the
year before. Bush is running
the Missouri Pacific.”
Think Franklin 40
Years Ahead o f
Western Arkansas
The following is taken from
the Charleston Express:
As C. F. Spiller and T. A.
Pettigrew were going to and
returning fromLittleRock recent
ly they paid special attention to
the condition of the crops along
the way and the methods of cul
tivating, and the comparison
proved that Franklin is far
ahead of any other section of
country on the route. They
say that the best crops they saw
on the trip lie between here and
Booneville mountain, and that
the one best crop was on the
Jonathan Cole farm in Six Mile
In this section farming with
out a cultivator is a thing of the
past—merely history. We can
not call to mind a single farm in
this section that has not one or

more cultivators, and we doubt
there being more than a very
few such farms in twenty miles
of Charleston. Between Boone
ville and Little Rock, a distance
of some 120 miles, Mr. Spider
kept count of the cultivators he
saw, the number being 7. All
the balance of farmers were
using one-horse implements.
Mr. Spider says, forming his
opinion from h i s travels over
the state that Franklin
is 40 years ahead of Western

As a living testimonial to the
old adage, “Good things tell
their own story" is Mr. Oscar
McCormick, of Bernie, Mo., who
has the best of reasons for prais
ing a wonderful preparation
called “Hays’ Specific," which
is now on sale by one of our
drug firms.
In a volunteer statement, Mr.
McCormick says:
“I was almost dead —hardly j
able to be up at all. My back c
and kidneys were in an awful
shape. I took two bottles of
Hays’ Specific and it actuallyl
cured me. I now weigh fifteen
pounds more than I have eveif
weighed. 1 know it is the best
medicine I ever used.”
This wonderful preparrtion is
now being sold by W. A Carter
& Son.
