Greene County, Arkansas
October 19, 1894
|The Paragould Southeastern people propose to celebrate the opening of their bridge across the St. Francis in a most ceremonious way. They will have Hon. P. D. McCulloch to orate on the occasion, a free excursion will be given, citizens from St. Louis, Memphis, and Little Rock will be present to join in the jubilee. It will be a great day for Eastern Arkansas.||On the occasion of the opening of
the railroad bridge across the St. Francis, it would be fitting to close
the evening of that memorable day with a banquet to the honor and long
life of President W. C. Hasty; Vice President, A. Bertig and Director, S.
W, Fordyce. The men who undertake and carry out great enterprises for
communities deserve the hearty plaudits of those benefited.
