This is an old yellowed brittle copy of a newspaper from the Mining era of Marion Co. It was sent to me by John Headrick. He tells me that he found it in his father's old papers. Many thanks to John for sharing this with us. I knew that some of the mining towns published newspapers but this is the first copy I've ever seen.

The photos in this newspaper are very dim. I've done the best I can with them.

Sanitary Meat Market Ad

From the
Sanitary Meat Market
Cotter, Ark.
W.H. Richards, Prop.

There is as much difference in meat as there is in any other line of goods or produce. There is poor meat and good meat. Meat handled from a dirty shop and meat handled from a clean shop. I handle good meat, handle it in a clean shop and under the most sanitary conditions.
I fill orders anywhere. If you want meat and cannot come to town, write me your order and it will come to you parcel post, on the first train.

Ad selling Town Lots in Rush

Town Lots in Rush

     There is not better small investment in the Buffalo River District than town property in Rush. The camp will be incorporated in the near future, which means that it will be one of the best incorporated towns in the north part of the state.
     The zinc ore deposits in the Rush creek camp and Buffalo river county are inexhaustible, which insures a steady output and an growing town for an infinite length of time to come.
     I am offering a number of lots facing on Buffalo river just below the mouth of Rush creek, at a very reasonable figure. During the next year they will double in value.

Buy Now and get a choice location. They will never be cheaper.
