The Clark County Historical Association has just released the 2016 edition of the Clark County Historical Journal. Published since 1973, the Journal is one of the Association's major projects each year. The 2016 Clark County Historical Journal includes an article featuring news items extracted from front pages of Arkadelphia's Southern Standard weekly newspaper of 100 years ago, 1916. The articles illustrate the variety of news published by the paper, and offer a glimpse into life in early twentieth-century Clark County. Agriculture remained important, automobiles began to appear on area roads, and long distance telephones offered new communication capabilities. As always, politics, economic developments, and disasters made headlines as well.
