"THE GUARDIAN O0 SaP Paragou[00t..The City Beautiful oo oo Sometimes we wonder why superl- ority exists where equal qualities abound. But it is only natural and is a daily occumnce. There is always some one at the head of the class, and there is always some town or com- munity that takes the lead. Para- gould is one of these towns. The vis- itor, as he enters Paragould, is im- pressed with its substantialness and beauty. The miles of paved streets and sidewalks, lined with thousands of massive shade trees, well kept lawns, the commodious and elegant residences and the solidity of the busi- ness and public buildings are an as- surance that it is a community of ! wealth and affluence. There is a motive for everything and immedi- ately the question arises in the vis- itor's mind, what has caused the city to spring up at this pax'ticular spot and excel all other towns between St. Louis and Little Rock in big stores, public buihlings and fine residences? But this is easily answelcd. Para- gould is the center of one of the most prosperous communities in the .State. The finest farms surround it. Large cattle ranges contribute to its" pros- perity and thousands of acres of tim- ber land and to its resources. It is a progressive city that extends its hos- pitality to the stranger in good old southern style. Paragould is located on the Cotton Belt and Missouri Pacific railroads, 223 miles south of St. Louis and 78 miles northeast of Memphis It has about 8,000 inhabitants. It is one of the cleanest, best governed, most mod- ern and up-to-date cities of its size in the State. Paragouht is a good place to live, because of its moral and social con- ditions. It is populated with a thor- oughly moral, God-fearing, broad- minded, hospitable, progressive peo- new comer a sincere welcome, and merit, rather than money, is the price of admission to the society of Para- gould people. St. Mary's Church. Rev. Father Hoflinger is in charge of St. Mary's Church, and has done a ST. MARY'S SCHOOL, PARAGOULD ple. A welcome is extended every new comer, and merit rather than money is the price of admission to the society of this people. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the middle west of a similar population. The water supply is pure and whole- some, excellent sewerage, clean streets and sanitary conditions are features good work among the people of Para- gould and vicinity and is generally favored by all. The congregation is growing and soon the present church building will be inadequate for the accommodation of its people. Father Hoflinger has labored strenuously in raising the debt of the building, which was heavy DeBONS & COMPANY Tinners and Sheet Metal Workers 107 W. Highland St. Phone 145 PARAGOULD, ARK.

It is the capital of Green county, and .is situated on a high point of Crowley's Ridge. The sur- rounding country is adaptable to the growth of general faizning. The land closer to the hill is used for cattle ranges, fruits and oats, while the bet- ,tom land is used for cotton, corn, al- falfa and small grains. In fact, everything that grows in the south can be raised in this section. Paragould offers a great induce- ment to people who seek a home in a thoroughly developed country, where progression and merit are the winning features. Situated on a high point of Crow- [ey's Ridge lies Paragould, the county seat of Greene county. It is from one to two hundred feet higher than thB level lands upon either side. It has a population of about 8,000, and is one of the most healthful cities in the Mid- dle West. The water supply is pure and wholesome, excellent sewerage, clean streets and sanitary conditions are features which tend to give it an unusual record from a health stand- point. It has more miles of paved streets ;han any other city of its size in Ark- ansas. It is one of the cleanest, best governed, most modern and most.up- to-date cities of its size m the State, and it offers superior advantages to those seeking investment where it will yield sure returns. It has some manufacturing inter- ests, is a railroad center, but its im- portance has been derived mainly by its trade with the surrounding terri- tory. Its geographical location is such that a more desirable place for mercantile and manufacturing pur- suit could not be asked It is natur- ally one of the attractive cities of Arkansas, and upon it is stamped the signet of enterprise and public spirit. To the attractiveness of nature are added the architectural design and the solidity and substantial character of municipal government. The citizens of the city have an abundance of civic pride, and not only keep their homes and surroundings in a tidy and pre- sentable shape, but they are careful that nothing that would mar the beauty of their property or create an unhealthy condition shouM be allowed to collect about their premises, It is populated by a thoroughly moral, God-fearing, broad-minded and hospitable people, who extend to every when he came, a few years ago, but I with careful work and the hearty co- operation of his people he has suc- ceeded in reducing it each year, until th present time it is nearly free from any obligation. St. Mary's School, situated next to the church, has a good patronage, and is up-to-date in its teaching, doing much to strengthen the moral and re- ligious training in the young people of the community. St, Mary's congregation numbers some of Paragould's influential men, REV. FATHER HOFLINGER, [ Pastor of St. Mary's Church both in mercantile and professional life. Father Hoflinger is untiring in [his energies in building up this splen- did congregation, and also is greatly interested in the growth of the city. A courageous heart calls out the best in head and hands. You can not think keenly nd accurately when your heart feels like lead within you. It is impossible to work with the energy which gives the best results, if you are downhearted and discouraged. Keep up your heart. When courage fails, all is lost.
