Published by the Clark County Historical Association in 2021, this 110 pages collection of stories from Arkadelphia's Southern Standard newspaper have been selected not only for their significance but also for their general interest. This volume begins with 1891's first paper and contains at least one item from every available issue for the following ten years. All stories are local and illustrated with local advertisements, chosen not only for their significance but also for their general interest. Some included due to their unusual nature. An attempt has been made to choose a wide variety of items to depict the full range of activity in Clark County during the years 1891 through 1900. The decade proved to be a time of great change as the nineteenth century came to a close. Electric street lights began to illuminate city streets, long-distance telephone service-connected the area to the rest of the world, and sewer and water systems served townspeople. Innovative gadgets in entertainment and leisure such as the phonograph and bicycle became people. a new county courthouse was completed in 1899, and Johnston Street was reamed main Street in 1893.
