Published by the Clark County Historical Association in 2021, this 136-page 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 1901'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 1901 through 1910. The decade proved to be a time of change as Arkansas moved into the twentieth century. For example, the automobile makes its first appearance in Clark County and roads increase in importance; utility service undergoes significant growth with increased connectivity to telephone, water, sewer, and electricity; and major construction projects saw completion, including the public library, churches (Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian), bridges over the Ouachita and Little Missouri, aw ell as schools at Arkadelphia and Gurdon.
