A Curb Market iPJtOGRAM this newspaper has had in mind the last ter2,i.£_ 3 j jaonfjhg j s £jje establishing of a Curb Market fcir and efficient handling of locally-grown produce. "jtWhat brought the idea home to us this week was the iplaint of a well known Hope matron, who said that ,„ —J farm produce came a good deal cheaper uptown |pdr When bought from the individual farmer making his """Sto-house canvass. the lady had discovered, of course, was the hon- ct law of trade and barter which permits us to levy 'traffic will bear. from the farmer to the housewife is an individual on. Uptown, however, the farmers circulating the stores and cafes create a sort of informal Curb where almost every deal is as public as though the tf it were shouted down the street. The effect of any market is, like the effect of newspaper advertisements, living cheaper through the power of exposed prices. Market aims to cut the housewife in on just those jantages which produce-men formerly enjoyed _ ^themselves. .Thai;*there is an advantage here for everybody, stands ~^ & yn, because every big American city has a Curb dating back almost toXJolonial history. The chief aim a market is to reverse the old huckster habit, and, in-, .^compelling the farmer to tour the entire .town, while, a few dozen chickens, create a central shopping place _ the housewife there. fe« establishing of a Curb Market is long over-due in The city owes it .to its farm friends in this and ad- counties, for it means a larger and steadier cash ih- the farmer. The city owes it to itself, for the Curb Do You TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO Dear Mr. Editor:—If you see Santa •laus, please tell him not to forget me. I am little Fay Crosnoe, and I ive in Hope, near the Ice Plant. Tell iim to be sure not to forgst the" doll. Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Stewart visited ler sister, Miss Nora Dudley, at Ouachita College, Sunday. L. F. and J, S. Monroe, of Washing- on, spent Thursday night in this city, en route to San Antonio, Texas. TEN YEARS AGOG farket makes living cheaper without costing any man a mve$ worth of business he enjoyed formerly. Money that %,'fanner gets for greenstuff s and poultry sold to house- ^ves at the Curb Market he himself spends with the grocery- si i and butcher before he gets home again. ^Our main experience with observing Curb Markets was <<one at El Dorado, which the News of that city helped iblish. As we recall, the market financed itself, a charge ||25"to 35 cents a stall on the various farmers eventually eti'ring the cost of construction. jM- It was a simple frame structure, consisting' only of a Inland open sides—and it operated three times a week, rossing som'etimes as much as a thousand dollars a session. "thing that we recall was of more lasting benefit to El ,raflo than, its Curb Market; and it is our idea to round hop*a committee of representative Hope citizens in the near '-•-'—re and visit some of the Curb Markets elsewhere in the (before advocating plans for our own. Columbus' Maps Nat Martin and Chas. Pittman, well cnown business men of Prescott, were visitors to Hope today. Sybil Williams, of Patmos, is in the city. Miss Esther Pettigrew has returned from a visit with relatives at Hot Springs. • Miss Ruth Hardiri, of'Nashville, is being watched 1 with much'interest by her many friends and admirers in her successful career as a director of plays. A special notice from St. Louis tells of her competent work as direc- tro of the Oriental-American musical comedy, "Katcha-Koo," which is proving a big success. E. W. Timbrelake was one of the well known Hempstead county farmers in town this afternoon to hear the address of Dean Bradford Knapp on the Cotton Association movement Mr. and 1 Mrs. Arthur Thomas, of Washington, D. C., will arrive soon to spend the Christmas holidays with relatives in Hope. IS interesting to learn that the map which Christopher Columbus used on his third voyage to America has come light in a Turkish museum, and will shortly be given to world. There is a world of romance in maps, especially in very [i) ones; and the map which carries great blank spaces along borders, indicating that the cartographer did not know jay behind the horizon, can call forth endless dreams. Four Jurors Seated for Second Yarberry Trial BEEVILLE, Texas.—(#>)—Four jurymen had been selected Monday night for the second trial of Newton Yarberry, charged with murder of his 18- year-old sweetheart, Dorothy Dorcas Symons, formerly Arkansas Pass choir singer. The body of Miss Symons, attired only in a bathing suit, was found on the beach near the Arkansas Pass breakwater. a - - That, of course, was the kind of map Columbus used. $7 On bis first voyage maps were of little use to him. He ex- ete<J to fetch up against the Asiatic coastline somewhere, id he probably had such charts of China, Malaya and India «'4?5th century Spain could provide. But all the way thither fas* as mysterious and unknown as the other side of the .jjQn, What good is a map to a man who charts a course due ,we§t i n to a shoreless sea? ! By the time he made his third trip, of course, he prob- y had a more or less makeshift set of charts. He knew le^st, that sooner or later he would make a more or less ijliar landfall. Somewhere ahead there were islands and nnels he had seen before. i But all the rest was darkness. To the north and south gtretched almost infinite reaches of empty ocean, which might "'J&jpceal anything from the lost Atlantis to the Happy Isles - ffiat Ulyssess sailed for. What, one wonders, did the old navigator think, what sort of speculation took hold of him, ajs kesat in his dim-lit, creaking cabin, a chair braced against j^ebulkhead for security, and studied his incomplete map? We shall never know, of course. Sea-faring men are >m communicative, and Columbus was no exception. But w* that is a closed book, the next best thi.ng is a glimpse at »««; map he used; and the man who could not pore over it by the hour, lost in dreams, has no appreciation of romance. One trouble with our world today, you see, is that our maps are too complete. Around the poles there are dwindling White spaces, and Asia and South America still have small »re?s that, are unknown. But for the most part every headland has been charted, every Mountain range ha;; been filled in, every river bed has peen Lraced. What wouldn't we give a map that was half empty! Now that the navy squabble is back in the headlines again it's plain that Hoover and the Navy League, are still at sea. ' A Philadelphia youth was sentenced to two years for yelling something belittling at Grand!. He might have failed; but for the. next-two years he'll succeed in making littl eones out of big ones. ... i i The Japanese were pressing in toward Chinchpw, But if they ever get into chow chow they'll be in a pretty piccalilli. ' ' , i An ex-broker was tried' as- a leader of an arson gang. With business at low ebb he probably was-just trying t ofire things with enthusiasm. And a banker says you can't accept nerve for . collateral.
