There is a bit of history connected
with the rjoatnffice of Rickreall. Or..
commonlv known aa Dixie by the older
inhabitants of Polk county. The post
office was established back in the tlx
ties. The first name suggested was
"Dixie." But at that time tne war leei-
ing was at a high pitch, and Colonel
Nesmith, aa godfather of the new office,
advised dropping of the "South-down"-
aoanaing iiue ami buubuiuviuk mo
name "La Creole," after the beautiful
atream on which it lies. An error was
made in spelling the word by its sound

officially upon record a "Rickreall" and
has remained that way ever since.

and entered a plea of guilty. United
State Attorney Mays recommended
that a fine of 500 be imposed, in de
fault thereof the criminal to be sentenced
to a term of imprisonment. Uonnsel for
Mason said the money conld be raised,
w sentence was deferred and prisoner
remanded to jail. Mason stood well in
the community until this crime was
charged against him, and some now
think that he pleaded guilty to screen
mm, of his family who committed the
crime. He made good the amount of
the order some time ago.
