Market Square Is
Rain tbiB week has put Clarks-
kvllle's t%arket square out of busi-
ness as the farmers were unable to
get to town with cotton and those
here were traveling light and were
merely watching the cotton market
perform and meeting old friends.
The rain will prevent picking for
several days and some of the farm-
ers claim that it has damaged the
cotton very lightly as the rain was
Sunshine Wednesday afternoon
had a tendency to put smiles on the
faces of some, however, regardless
of the market activities.
LIGHT FOR WEEK
Up to time of closing Wednesday
ni^ht the two local storage yards
had received a total 16,136 bales—
An Increase of only 210 bales over
the report to closing time last Sat-
Credit for this exceptionally slow-
movement of cotton is given to the
almost impassible roads over which
most of the farmers must travel to
get their product to the gins.
WRESTLING MATCH TO BE
AN INTERESTING ONE
INCLEMENT WEATHER NO BAR-
RIER WITH HIGHWAYS IN
The closing ot the gap on the
highway between Greenville and
Dallas makes that one ot the best
highways in the state and it is be-
ing used to good advantage by many
Clarksville citizens who are attend-
ing the State Fair of Texas.
Clarksville has always been well
represented at the Dallas Fair and
In spite of the exceptionally bad
weather we have had since the
opening of the exposition on the
10th of the month, the number of
people who make the annual pilgrim
fourth of the total for the week.
This has made the trip to Dallas
by road from Clarksville an easy
five hours drive and no small num-
ber of our people are taking advan-
tage of this tact. The only section
of the road over the entire 156
miles that necessitates cautious driv-
ing' Is the first five miles west ot
Clarksville. From the Junction of
our road with the Bagwells road at
a point five miles west of town to
Dallas is all a surfaced highway
which is in the pink of condition
with the exception of a short detour
through Caddo Mills, a small tqwn
between Greenville and Dallas,
where the concrete was but recently
laid and is being allowed the allot-
ed two weeks for settling
Local football enthusiasts are
clammorlng for tickets to the col-
lege games which are played there
each week-end and from the amount
of 'football gossip' going the rounds
in our stores, the punt and pass bid
fair to usurp the mighty King swat
as the national sport,—in Clarks-
ville at least.
RECEIVE ALL BADGES
The Volunteer Fire Department Is
In receipt of their badges which
will enable them to discern who is
to give and who is to receive or-
ders. Heretofore much difficulty has
been encountered by the "boys" in
telling the right man to do the right
With the new trucks, hose for the
department, new badges, slickers,
boots, and helmets for the firemen,
all that Is needed to make ours the
"Perfect Department" is a few sala-
ries for the boys who fight so val-
iantly for our lives and property.
Advance reports on the wrestling
match to be held tonight at the H.
and C. Skating rink would show
that the (patch will be of extraordi-
nary interest to local mat fans.
Johnson states that he Is in the best
of condition and from all that can
be learned, Bill's opponent, Young
Westergarde is no less fit for the
It is understood that Westergarde
has met and defeated a number ot
well-known professionals and he
promises Johnson a 'run for his
money' and Judging from a picture
of the former sent to the Review
by his manager, we wouldn't cher-
ish the idea of taking Bill's place.
Miss Mary Frances McCarver, who
is attending Kldd-Key College at
Sherman came home for the week
end with friends and relatives here.
Gravel Roads Are In
Bad State of Repair
After a week of slow, steady
rains, the roads in the immediate
vicinity of Clarksville are in a bad
state of repair and are in sore need
In some places on * the roads the
water and mud Is almost two feet
deep and In others even the gravel
roads are totally impassible.
Rain Fall Light
For Week's Spell
SEBMINGLY HEAVY RAINS ONLY
TOTALED ABOUT 1.50
Though rain has fallen almost
constantly (or almost a week the
slowness of the rains misled many
into believing that many inches had
The government measuring sta-
tion located ft the Clarksville Cot-
ton Oil Refining Company showed
a total precipitation At only 1.56
inches for the entire rainy period.
The total for Wednesday's rain was
.37 Inches, slightly more than a
fourth of the rainfall for the entire
It's slowness waft probably the
only thing that prevented the rain
from d«lng much damaige to the cot
ton that is left in the1 fields though
it is feared that if the precipitation
continues much longer the crop will
begin to sprout in the boll and thus
ruin much of the fleecy staple.
Many Tourists Make
Clarksville For Night
The hotel registers of Clarks-
ville reveal the fact that many tour-
ists make Clarksville for the night.
This is due partly to the excellent
hotel service and partly to the fact
that Clarksville is at the east end
of the good road from Texarkana to
Dallas, practically, and the tourist
manages to make our little city In
order to get an early morning start
on the "bad end" of the lap.
Hotel registers show tourists from
practically all parts of the country
stopping over night. They arrive all
hours, beginning usually about
seven o'clock and continuing on
through the night.
FURNISHED ROOMS IN
. CLARKSVILLE SCARCE
Many people coming into Clarks-
ville wanting furnished rooms are
having difficulty in getting located.
Where they can be found some ob-
ject to children, and in most cases
the landlords will not admit chil-
dren at all.
The Review has had several calls
this week for such rooms and were
unable to supply any of the de
mands. If you have single or fur-
nished rooms, advise us and w& will
try to find a tenant.
Chaplin Picture Is
An Interesting One
The place is the Skating Rink
building. No admission will be
Charlie Chaplin's latest and
greatest picture, "The Gold Rush,"
which was shown at the Colonial
Theatre here Monday, Tuesday, and
Wednesday, was a departure from
Chaplin's usufel type of comedy and
played to a capacity bouse on each
of the three nights.
ClarkBville movie fans laughed,
thrilled, and cried with 'Charlie' and
his joys and sorrows in the Gold
Country and here it was proven
that he has not lost favor with

Third Trades Day
Draws Big Crowds
Despite the inclement weather
and slippery roads, the third weekly
trades day . held here Wednesday
drew many people from various
parts of the county. This constitut-
ed a crowd almost as large as the
customary Saturday buyers and lo-
cal merchants reported a brisk busi-
ness Wednesday afternoon.
The main event, which is held on
the public square, at two o'clock
each Wednesday afternoon has pro-
ven to be a big drawing card and
the trades day as a whole Is a great
Inducement to the people of Clarks
vllle and vicinity to buy at home.
Duck Season Opens
With Loud Report
Local worshipers of the goddess?
Diana? have been waiting, more or
less patiently, for the opening of the
duck season today. With a prom-
ised cold snap and with the heavens
overcast with threatening clouds
good "duck weather" Is expected in
a few days.
Few ducks have been seen at near
by lakes this year which is proba-
bly due to the delayed cdld weather
but sportsmen have their hopes high
for an abundance of the birds be-
fore the season advances much fur-
MORE MOSQUITOES THAN HAVE
BEEN NOTICED IN TWO
MARABLE HARDWARE STORE
" MOVING TO NEW LOCATION
The Marable Hardware Compa-
'ny is this week moving their stocks
to the old J. E. Dorsey dry goods
building on the southwest corner of
This store has been completely
remodeled, including a new front,
which sets the store off well, and
adds greatly to that side of the
square, being next to the new
front of the SUberberg store.
It will require several days to get
the stock moved and put in order
but will not interfere with the ser-
vice of the store In the least as it
is being moved in a departmentlsed
The Hocker Hardware Company
will occupy the building being va-
cated by these people after improve*
ments are made.
The Merchants' Fair, October tl
and 22 promisee to be one of tfee
coming event* of the (fall season
that you cannot afford to miss.
After two mosqultoless summers,
citizens of Clarksville are filled
with consternation at the large
swarms of the pests which are to
be seen in every dark corner since
the beginning of the wet spell last
Like the small fish cast upon the
shores by the receding tides, the ma* '
larla carrying pests of the swamp i
lands have Invaded our fair city at*
ter an appreciated absence of al«
most two years. They are making
themselves known and many cases
of chills have been reported In the
last few days.
Since the inauguration of the* of*
flee of "mosquito inspector" two
summers ago Clarksville citizensV
have been almost completely rid ot
the pests and it is not until now
that the value of such an inspector
is being fully appreciated.
But citisens of our city are not
the only ones suffering from attack!
by the enemies of good health. News
has been received from several other
sections of the state and they seem
to be troubled with the pests fully
as much as Red River County.
FAMOUS SHOE STORE

new shoe store under his manage*

a call from his friends.
NO MEETING C. OF C.

crowd, prevented the regular meet*
