100 YEARS AGO Feb. 28, 1913 PARAGOULD — Secretary C. W. Highfill yesterday received a communication from W. H. Bennett, a farmer residing near Clinton, Iowa, asking for information about Arkansas frogs. Mr. Bennett says he is starting a frog farm and wants to secure some northeast Arkansas frogs to cross with the Iowa products. Secretary Highfill replied that this section of Arkansas is short on frogs since the drainage system has been practically completed and that the sections that were formerly the breeding places for the bullfrog now are fertile fields producing 100 bushels of corn and a bale of cotton to the acre.
