(NEA TelcpbatoJ Ex-Livery Stable Ov/ner Quits Business Here After 35 Years Back in the days when Beau Brummcl hired a hack with high- stepping horses to take his besL girl riding on Sunday afternoon in Blylhevllle' . . , on through the days of the first taxis when only the well-to-do enjoyed the newfangled motor cars . . . when gasoline was sold lor 10 cents a gallon for the first automobile in town ... on through the present era of providing a service station to motorists here. That is how long Tom W. Jackson has provided means of conveyance for pecmle of Blythe- 'Me, but that is over. He has, leased his service station after having entered business here 35 years ago, and plans to rest. But it wouldn't seem right not to go to the corner of Second and Ash streets, as he has done for the pasL 20 years, so lie has rented a part, of his own building there and plans to maintain an "office to. rest." •It was back In 1909 that Mr. Jackson purchased the local livery stable, after coming here from Gainesville, Ark., where he was barn. He bought the business from the late A. T. Cloar which was located at present sites of Piggly Wtggly and Robinson stores. Alert to the needs of those people making money in tlie already fifst'grpwIiiE village, Mr. Jackson soon had £0 fine horses which he rented with buggies or surreys — handsome with black silk fringe a( { C and red tassels on the whips which ' ne SP civil w-i went with them. | lfl V 9 ,.', Undaunted when automobiles first p qtro ] ' enme to Blythei'ille in 1014, Mr. Jackson had no fear of losing business at the livery stable. He obtained two Ford cars and entered Die t'axi game, with the stable continued for the more timid souls. At that time there were but two other cars in (he North end of Mis- trade. lie established his business on West Asli street, adjacent io his present location au^ moved to the southwest cornel' at Ash and Second 20 years ago. Mr. mid Mrs. Jackson live at 800 West Ash but he didn't have to sit around the house Monday on his llret du v of "rcliranent". In fact, he declares he has n:it retired but just quit business and dally he continues to go down to his own office on the front where he can still chat with the customers. And who knows? He may KO back Into the business of providing means of (ravel by opening an airplane service .slalion for another step In his colorful career. Al any rate, he hasnt "retired".

The gasoline, which cost. 10 cents per gallon, came in 55- galloii drums and there was no tax.
