Several of Star City's people, both old and young, spent a few days on the bayou this week angling for the finny tribe.

Letter to the Editor - Will you allow me space in your valuable paper to correct a false report that is circulating through this county.

I wish to say that if nominated and elected, I will be in the office at Star City every day attending to the duties of said office myself, and not by deputy. Yours respectfully, J.C. Knox, May 22d, 1896

Professor J.A. Hitt, one of Lincoln county's well know and efficient educators was in town a few days since and called at the Ledger office and became a subscriber for the county paper. The professor is now teaching the Pine Hill school.

The Ledger people had a call Tuesday from Prof. Geo. D. Moore of Palmyra, who came to renew his subscription for the county paper. He informed us that he is now and has been for the past five weeks head of the Industrial School at Pine Bluff. Prof. Moore is a well known educator, a christian gentleman and in our humble opinion will fill the position with honor and fidelity.

Palmyra Mr. Editor (Lincoln Ledger) Allow space in your columns to reply to "Vox Populi," who wrote a letter to last week's issue. The writer, who ever he was was as greatly mistaken in his own name as he is in the views he expresses. Had he signed his name "Vox Fooli" he would, at least, expressed one truth. It is very probable that this brilliant (?) writer is a political henchman of either Collins or McGehee, or at least a sneaking enemy of H.D. Avery's, against whom he was evidently trying to prejudice the people in their action in the coming primaries. The writer intended to lead the people to believe that Avery was disqualified to serve them simply because he does not own the amount of property of either of the others. I do not know what property Mr. Avery owns aside from his household goods, but it would indeed be surprising if he owned anthing after going throught the hands of political tricksters the past four years simply to advance the interest of the party. I hope the people are not unmindful of the fact that the part was unorganized in 1892, and when a few party patriots undertook to reorganize the party with a view of putting______ticket, it was feared that men could not be found that would permit their names upon the ticket and who would go into the fight with their money and time when success seemed hopeless. In the midst of these gloomy surroundings it was orated around that there would be a public caucus of Democrats at the Masonic dinner at Tyro on June 24th. At the caucus, on this day, I am informed that the name of Avery was suggested for clerk, but in a disinterested speech he told them he was not a suitable man, by reason of his limited residence of seven years in this county, and his limited acquaintance among the people. After considerable insistence, Avery told them he was a true blue democrat and wasn't afraid to go into the fight against any Republican, that every walked, and when the democratic convention met if they needed the name of a straight democrat, from sheriff to cornorer, he would put his name in. In the meantime, mark you, letters had been written to competent men in every part of the county, inviting them to take places on the ticket, as clerk, but "nary a one" loved his party enough to offer. When the convention met, Avery, though in Memphis, was unanimously nominated, and ordered home to go into the campaign. All know the result. Bryant died in Hot Springs the day before the election but beat Avery 29 votes. Meroney was 14 votes ahead of Rogers for sheriff, and Rogers was preparing for a contest, but by some hook and crook of political logic a petition was circulated to call a new election for clerk, which was duly done in conformity to the wishes of certain wise workers, Rogers was got into the race for clerk. Meroney escaped the contest, and the "load of brick" fell on Avery who was robbed of all the office made above a living by the hottest contest every known in this county. And now this "Vox Fooli" tells the people of Lincoln county that Collins and McGehee are the men because they have property. Where did these great men get their property? From the sweat of an honest brow? go ask the shades of the departed Judge McGehee and the aged Joe X. Collins and they will tell you, "From my honest toil and sweat." Besides, are the people of Lincoln county prepared to say that there should be a property qualification for office holding? If this be true then how long before there will be a law requiring property qualifications for voters?  Citizens of the 16th Senatorial District, let your vote in the primaries say whether or not you are in favor of those voting only who have so much property.  The wirter of this is a friend to Mr. Avery, because he knows him, knows he is possessed of all the elements of manhood.

Married: Nov. 10th, 1908 (sic), Mr. Wm. W. Mullikin to Miss Mary Muckleroy at the residence of the bride's step-father, Mr. John Blassengame, C.H. Lyman officiating.

News from Rest: Every Monday morning finds us hunting for the wood pile.

C.H. Russell made a trip to Warren this week prospecting.

Jeff Haddox and Guy Moran left last week for Texas. Guy said: "Need not look for him back until some body sold cotton as his pocket book was in such a condition that you would think an elephant had stepped on it."

W.E. Newton is confined to his room most of the time on account of his large toes. (what does that mean, gout?)

M.M. West made a trip to Pine Bluff this week to market some pork. He says, "it beats cotton selling."

We understand that Sam Clowers of Relfs Bluff, who has been a constant vistor to Mr. J.W. Russell's for a couple of years, called late Sunday night and had business of a private nature with Rev. W.H. Newton. Perhaps at next writing we can tell what his troubles were.

Every body is making preparations for the Presbytery which will convene at Newton's Chapel on Saturday the 16th. A large delegation is expected.

Dec 10, 1909

Grover Atkinson, accompanied by W.E. Lee, left Star City last Saturday for Clio, where he led to the altar Miss Etta Tolson. The happy couple were married at Mt. Carmel church Sunday, Rev. A.L. Rogers officiating. We understand they will make their future home in Star City, Grover having secured rooms from Will Grumbles. We welcome them to our city and with a host of friends wish them much happiness as they journey through life.

The G.S.W. Ry. trains are not running regular these days. The passenger service is out. This is a great disappointment to our people. We hope the officials will soon have their road in shape so that we can get regular service.

Mrs. Lizzie Stewart has rented the Traweek property from Judge H.B. Lucas and will soon move into town. She has rented her farm to her brother, George Roberts, who has been residing in Ashley county.

By an oversight we failed to mention in our last week's issue the visit of Mr. Ed Tarver's wife and child of Dallas, Texas. They spent the week in Star City and vicinity, the guest of Capt H.H. Tarver and family.

J.H. McPherson has moved from the Ligon residence to the property on the east side of town known as the Norton property, which was purchased by J.W. McPherson.

I.L. Vick was in town Wednesday with several nice hogs for sale, which he had no trouble in disposing of.

Carter & Nobles are making an addition to their store house. A. Verdue and son are doing the work.

We learn that Mr. and Mrs. J.A. McFalls are the happy parents of a new girl who made her appearance at their home Monday last.

J.W. and D.B. Lyman were down from their farm this week for a couple of days.

Miss Edna Lyman is at home sick. On account of which she had to give up her school at Tyro.

Dock Touchstone has moved to the Bayou on the Bacon place.

The Town Council authorizes the Ledger to say that the Ordinances against the use of Liquors and the use of fire works in the town will be strictly and ridgedly enforced, a hint to the wise is sufficient.


Last Tuesday morning our little town was shocked by  the announcement that Mrs. A.W. Nobles was dead. She was sick only a few hours and her death not expected. In fact, very few knew that she was sick at all until her death was announced. She leaves a husband and ten children, the youngest a baby born the morning before the mother's death. Mrs. Nobles was the wife of one of our best citizens of the firm of Nobles & Carter, and formerly sheriff of Lincoln county. Mrs. Nobles was highly esteemed and loved by all for her gentleness and christian character, a devoted wife and mother. The Ledger, together with a host of friends, extend to the bereaved husband, children and other relatives deepest sympathy in this their sad hour of lonliness and grief..

Dec. 1919

A wedding was solemnized Sunday afternoon on the big road between Star City and Mountian Home, when Arvin Carrington of this place and Miss Thelma Wimberly of Rest, both of prominent families of Lincoln county, were married by Rev. M.O. Barnett.

Lee Fish and Miss Virginia Cogbill were married recently, but when, where and by whom we have not been advised, therefore, we are unable to give a more extended notice of the wedding.

Recently the following persons renewed their subscriptions for the Ledger, to whom we extend sincere thanks for their continued support and allegiance to the county paper: Rufus Grumbles, M.A. Huckaby, Elbert Vick, Fred Morrison, Mrs. Bettie Johnson, J.R. Lee, H.A. Nobles, E.M. Rucker, C.T. Owen, formerly of Lincoln county, but now of Pine Bluff, Norman Fullbright.

Dr. Weatherall reports a girl born to Mr. and Mrs. Willis Johnson on the 5th and also a girl to Mr. and Mrs. Herman Bush on the 7th inst.

E.C. Norton is back from St. Louis slightly disfigured but still in the ring. The sore on his under lip is disappearing and E.C. will soon be able to say, "Richard is himself again."

We are told that Mrs. John Ratterree, residing near Garnet is very low with cancer and not expected to live many more days. The lady has been unconscious for over four weeks.

Better take your umbrellas when you go out in town Dec. 17. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn will be in conjunction that day, and a scientist predicts cataclysmic weather.

The Ledger regrets that it was deemed necessary to again place Will Atkinson in the hospital for nervous diseases at Little Rock. The unfortunate gentleman was carried to that institution a few days ago.

Grady is forging to the front as well as Star City. In our live and progressive town a new brick hotel is being erected and also several frame residences.

E.R. Whitehead and family have moved from Moscow to Star City and are occupying the former home of Judge H.R. Lucas. We welcome this excellent family to our shores.

Feb. 1923 (26th?)

ANSWERS THE LAST ROLL CALL Amidst weeping skies the remains of Thomas J. McFalls, pioneer citizen and Confederate veteran, was laid to rest in Heflin cemetery last Sunday afternoon. Mr. McFalls, or as he was affectionately known, as "Uncle Tom," passed to the great beyond last Saturday, February 24, at 2 o'clock, at the ripe old age of 85 years and 9 days. Uncle Tom was born in Mississippi in 1838, but moved to Arkansas with his parents in 1866. Subsequently he married Katherine White, and lived together happily for 43 years when the death angel claimed the wife. As a result of this union 13 children came to bless them, eight boys and five girls, only seven survive. Beside these seven children there are left 37 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren and a great host of other relatives. In 1861 he entered the Confederate army and left a record of valor which is a priceless heritage for those whom he loved. He was in the battle of Shiloh and other sanguinary conflicts of the Civil War, but never received a wound. Though not a member of any church he knew God had been with him all these many years and was ready to go whenever He called. He was highly respected and greatly beloved by all who knew him.  For sometime had been in failing health and because of his broken constitution he was unable to wage a winning fight for his life, but he prayed to die and often said to his friends who visited him that he was ready to answer the last roll call without fear, and like one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him and lies down to pleasant dreams he passed from death unto life. His familiar figure will be missed from off our streets and at the annual reunion of his comrades. Rev. W. L. Merrin, pastor of the Presbyterian church here, preached the funeral sermon at the grave and Father Crook read the burial service for the Confederate dead. (Greatgrandfather of Jann Woodard

August 7, 1925

Mrs. Emma Anderson and pretty baby boy of Haynesville, La., are guest at the home of her father, A.W. Nobles.

Do you contemplate attending the A.&M. College at Monticello. If so, you had better secure a room, as they are being spoken for rapidly, so an advertisement in the Ledger this week says. Read it and govern yourselves accordingly.

Dr. Weatherall was attacked Monday night with what was thought to be acute appendicitis and before dawn the next morning was rushed to Pine Bluff for an operation, but on arriving in the city the symptoms disappeared and he returned home the next day without an operation. The Dr. is up and about and we hope he will not be subject to reaccurrence of the symptoms.

The days are growing shorter, but our creditors' memory hasn't shown any signs of diminishing.

Another way to keep from eating too much is to buy a used car and keep it in running order!

So far as we know, there has never been any strike to obtain higher wages of sin!

Rev. Mr. Griever, pastor of the Star City Baptist church, is sporting a new Ford.

I.L. Vick came in one day last week and renewed his subscription for the "Old Ledger" followed by B.D. Phillips, and on our way to preaching services at the Presbyterian church Monday morning who should we see but J.L. Puntney, president of the Bank of Star City, who followed the good example of the two first named gentlemen. No town, county or state can claim better citizens than the trio mentioned and we feel highly honored in numbering them among our friends.

Miss Evelyn McGuffey, accompanied by her father and Mrs. Patty Clayton, a trained nurse, left for Memphis last Sunday morning for an operation with the hope of a cure. It is well known here that Miss Evelyn has for sometime been sorely afflicted with an impaired limb and foot which makes navigation difficult, and news came Tuesday to the parents of the young lady that an operation had been successfully performed and that every indication points to a complete cure. This is joyous news to the parents and sister of the young lady, and also to her numerous friends and admirers.

Don't forget the big barbecue and picnic at Confederate Park, commencing Aug. 19 and lasting three days, and something will be doing every day.

Miss Jewel Rupe is home on her vacation and at the same time recuperating from a slight indisposition.

Misses Ruby Fish and Bertha White, Miss Ruby from Fayetteville and Miss Bertha from New Orleans, are at home here.

Emmette Miller has thrown up his position at Little Rock and is now at home here. It is reported that he will conduct the singing at religious meetings hereabouts.

Mrs. W.E. Dodds was operated on for the relief of appendicitis at Pine Bluff last Saturday. The operation is said to have been successful and the lady getting along just fine.

We regret very much to record the serious illness of an aged Confederate soldier and highly respected and esteemed fellow citizen, J.W. Russell. He is at the home of his son-in-law, Sam Clower, near town.

Father and Mother Crook have had guest for several days. Mrs. Mary Floyd of Camanche, Texas, and J.A. McWorther and family of Granberry, Texas. Mrs. Floyd is a sister of Mother Crook and Mrs. McWorther, a niece of Father Crook.

Mrs. W.E. Dodds was operated on for the relief of appendicitis at Pine Bluff last Saturday. The operation is said to have been successful and the lady getting along just fine.

The Ledger force is under many obligations to Palmer McFalls, farmer on the bayou, for a watermelon and muskmelon presented them last Friday. The muskmelon was not measured, but the watermelon was and it measured 28 inches in circumference and 22 in length, but both were delicious to the taste, proving that as good melons can be raised on the bayou as well as in the hill county. The force with one accord voted Palmer a good Samaritan.

County Clerk J.W. Bailey went to Little Rock one day last week to carry the pension list of Confederate soldiers of Lincoln county. The clerk did a very commendahble act in going over the county seeking out those entitled to pensions. The old fellows, now on the border land, are apt to forget and Mr. Bailey took it on himself to see that everything was correct.

Married: Victor Felley and Mrs. Leora McGregor were married here last Saturday eve at the Methodist personage by the pastor of the church, Rev. O.C. Birdwell. The groom is a school teacher and is well and favorably known in the county, while the bride is said to be a very pretty girl and has a large circle of friends, whom we feel sure will join us in whishing them the best of luck all through life.

The old Mt. Zion church has been torn away and foundation laid for a new edifice. The Presbytery meets at Mt. Zion about Nov. 10, and it is planned to have the building completed by that time.

Rev. H.W. Inzer of Camden will begin a series of meetings at Newton's Chapel on the fourth Sunday in this month, it being the 23rd day. The public generally is invited to attend.

We received one day last week a money order for $1.50 from Mrs. W.G. Hancock, which indicated she wanted the Ledger for a year. Before her marriage to Dr. Hancock she was Miss Annie Moran, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.W. Moran of near Cornerville and while on a recent visit to her parents and her sister, Mrs. Dr. Collins of Star City, she read the Ledger and in a note to us says it brought to mind fond memories of the past, and forewith became a subscriber.
