McCoRKtE, Editor, SUBSCRIPTION. PHIOE, 91.60 A YEAR. A STOCK SHOW, Arkadelphia SiftingsHerald says in its issue of Oct. 12: , • "From the Messenger we learn that the Stock, Show at Okolona was an immense success. The ,good people of that section should make it so every year, as they can easily do so." Twelve .years ago, about this stock time in the year, we had a show in Hope. It had but short notice, but it brought a good crowd of. people tp Hope who were .interested iri the development. of the stock and farming interests, and tlie ; meeting was a pronounced success, both'in a social way and in accomplishing the f end sought. £rom:that meeting grew the Hope District Fair Association, which, en'j^he'efed by public .spirited and competent .business men, gave to th,is;section of the State the most interesting and largest attended feiir'ever held in the State. It did waders for Hope and Hempstead 'County; Our town got publicity and an impetus that made it forge .away ' ahead of its competitors.

The coming of Senator Jones was unannounced, but quite a number of the leading citizens of the city were at the depot to welcome his safe return to Arkansas. . v HAPPENINGS TOWNS. * * * M I f aeeat/r. There has never been a greater demand in Beebe for stores, residences and offices, nor less probability of the supply being equal to the emergency. If it continues, as there is every reason to believe that it will, some one should be energetic enough to put up more buildings as there is every reason to believe they will be needed permanently. —Topics , Beebe. THE OLD WAV. Our article on the old Star of Hope last week elicited favorable comment and set folks to thinking and looking about for relics of bygone days. One gentleman found in one of his newspapers the following notice, published .in the Washington, Telegraph of Nov. 9, 1864, John R. Eakin being at that time editor of that time honored journal: POSTAL NOTICE. All indebted for postage will please come forward like men and pay by the 3oth of September, 1864, or the old issue of $5 will not be taken at par, as on that day I want to make my deposit as Postmaster.

The' newspaper men had run the notice over, time, and instead of a live item ,this notice was a "dead hopse, ' ' The boys get it that way yet, once in a while. Mr, Dona Huie was called to' Hillsboro last Sunday on account of the serious 'illness of his wife, who was visiting her sister, Mrs. Williams at that place.—Siftings- Herald. A Mrs. Edwards, living near the Cotton Mills, died Tuesday evening. She had .been an object of charity of the ladies' aid societies for some months and her surroundings showed destitution,' but after her death $130.00 was discovered in a belt, on her boidy.

A big movement is on foot to jmprove the condition of the Onachita River so as BOUQUETS. We have received .Vol. i, No. i, of the Star of Hope, by Claude McCorkle—-a very. ilewsy and well printed paper.

'Mr. G. C. Strong, the gentleman employed in this work, was in I^ope Wednesday, on a visit to Senator Jas. K. Jones, and spoke very enthusiastically on the subject. Among other things a big convention of representative men is to be held at Monroe, L,a., November 8th, for the purpose of bringing the subject more fully before Congress and to otherwise further the enterprise.

Fire destroyed the residence of Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Berrynian Sunday night. The. jfire was discovered on the roof about 11 o'clock by some one passing and the inmates aroused and the alarm sounded. The fire company responded quickly although it was a good long run, and despite the fact that they could reach it with only one string of hose, did excellent work. The contents were nearly all saved by the people who responded to the alarm. There was no insurance.—Ibid. Mr Pye is a prosperous druggist at that place 1 , and a rnari of excellent qualities.'

Josey & Ward ought to do some business this season. A BIO COURT. Circuit Court, which adjourned Wednesday evening, to meet again Nov. ist to try some civil cases did a big lot of business at a comparatively small cost to the County, ft is doubtful whether the District ever had better judicial officers. Judge Conway is making a record of which his constituency is proud; and Prosecuting Attorney Greene is not only zealous but wonderfully successful in his work. This court there were were 17 felony cases and he secured 16 convictions; 14 convicts were sent to the penitentiary. The number of indictments returned by the grand jury was 51, and the witness expense incurred was exceedingly light. The jury commissioners appointed were Capt. Thos. H. Simins, John Mitchell and David Huddleston. 00 YOU WANT TO M*HRY? And buy your furniture cheap? If so, ask the girl, and then see E.
