Facts About Arkansas About one hundred years ago In Arkansas a clock p«ddlln<r racket grew to such proportions that the legislature levied a tux of $30 on all clock peddlers. * • * Bill Carr of pine Bluir, v/no broke the world's foiir hundred ineter record In Ihe Olympics, was n high Jumper In high "school, setting a record for the high Jump in the University meet at Faycttcvlllo in * * • . Half a century ago manufacturing plants in the Ozarks finished all of their products. Today they are sent away for the final touches ancl then brought back again. Tnis Is but one phase of transition In industry In this part O f the slale. With little ceremony, Oov. Joe T. Robinson, now the state's senior United Slates senator, signed a Joint resolution on February 20, 1913, accepting the design of Miss Willie K. Hocker of Wabbaseka, Jefferson county, as the oillcial Hag of the state. S'ne explains her design In this way: Arkansas Is one of the United States; therefore, the'naMonal colors are used. The three blue start typify the three Nations—Spain Prance, and the United States—to which Arkansas, In succession,' has belonged. Their number, three, indicates that Arkansas was the thin state carved out of the Louisiana Purchase. The twenty-five stars 6'how that Arkansas was the twenty-fifth state In the order of admission to the Union. The three blue stars also indicate the number of the year In the century, 1803 when Arkansas became the property of the United States. Arkansas contains the only known diamond mine within the possessions of the United stales; therefore, the state should be known as the Diamond State and Its flag ; s diamond in shape. * ? * Market! Tree, a town in the southeastern portion of Polnsett county, •gained Us name In an unusual way, according to a legend that dates back tp Indian days There was;an old Indian chief called Moonshine. His warriors were unequalled In daring. Moonshine frequently sent them on long journeys after game. The hunters would sometimes follow the Little River to the St. Francis river and follow it hunting game. One day Moonshine went down Little River to welcome his returning hunters. He loitered at a big bend about Uo miles from the mouth of Little River. Scarcely five hundred yards away he saw the St. Francis, By providing a portage here aborft twelve miles of weary (ravel would be avoided Therefore Moonshine blazed a mark on a lanje tree nnd told his warriors to portage here. Later :his blazed tree. - .1 caused a town to be erected here, it was named for a great character or one of its promoters, but after the old tree which was still a-landmark. Thus Lne present town of Marked Tree came by i[ s name!
