The popu- lation of Forrest City is about 8,000 people, but its business houses ex- tend tlmir trade for out into the country and the finest plantations in the State buy timir supplies here and the business tranacted is many times more tlmn that clone in cities of similar size in this State or in other States. Forrest City is forty-five miles southwest of Memphis anti ninety- five miles northeast of Little Rock. It is a junction point of the Helena branch of the St. Louis, h'on Moun- tain & Southern Railway (now operated by the Missouri-Pacific rail- road) and the Clficago, Rock Island & Pacific railway. Alive to Best Interests. The people of Forrest City and St.. Francis county are alive to their best interests and ample prowsion has been made for good roads and the best of educational advantages. Upwards of $600,000 has been spent during the last to,, years to improve the roads of the county anti to connect the main pikes leading in every direction from Forrest City to the main pikes of other counties. The streets of the city are improved and are to be put in the very best condition in the near future. The public school system is second to none in the country for towns of its size, and nothing has been spared for the comfort and education of the young people either in the buildings that house the students or tim com- pliment of educators that provide for the school system. Gratifying a.dvancem,t has been made both in Forrest City and the Michael Meagher When the history of the Michael Meagher Memorial Hospital was pre- sented to the readers of the "Guard- tan" last year, it was noted that growth was the watchword of the Sis- ters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, of Galveston, Texas, who have the management of the institution in hand. From the clay when the hos- pital was both blessed by the Rt. Rev John Baptist Morris, D. D., Bishop o Little Rock, and opened to the pub- lic, Sept. 14, 1916, to the (lay when the nurses' home was completed July, 1919, there was noticeable a percept- ibie growth. So too, from that day to this, not a month has passed by during which some improvement has not been made; improvements, that not only marked the beautifying of the institution, but also a(hled to the churches. The First Methodist Church is one of the finest edifices in the State and was built at a cost of $40,000.00, to which was. added a $2,,.500 organ. The other denomina- tions all have churches. The Catholics worship in a very pretty little edifice that was remod- eled and newly fmished a few years ago. The St. Francis Catholic Church was organized in 1885. The name . of the congregation was given in honor of St. Francis of Assissi, the fou:nder of the Franciscan Order A church was built upon the organiza- tion of the congregation, which served them until 1895 when they built a new and more pretentious building, and in 1915 the latter church was remodeled and newly furnished. For several years the parish Was in charge of the late Father J. B. White, a very devout and able man. Upon the death of Father White a few months ago, the congregation was placed in charge of Roy. Father Nor- ton, of Brinkley. The congregation is growing and over 80 communicants attend regularly. While St. Francis Church has not a very large congre- gation, its inuence for nmral good in the community is strong and grow- ing. Its members embrace some of the best and most influential citizens of the city. t, Memorial Hospital Coolidge equipment for radiography fluoroscopy anti treatments. A new apparatus for gas anasthesia is now in use in the operating room. In these departments, all the work is done by Sisters, some of whom are specialists. Sister M. Alden pursued a special course of six weeks last spring in laboratory work and phar- macy. She has a degree from Mar-I qBette University. In the office, Sister M. Elizabeth has installed the latest recognized and approved "system of record keeping and filing.
