FRANK PACE is one of the youngest, but none the less one of the ablest, attorneys of northwest Arkansas. He has improved every opportunity for gaining knowledge and has availed himself of every chance for the betterment of his condition and reputation, and more than this cannot be said of the most successful man who has ever lived. He owes his nativity to Boone County, Arkansas, born here, he first saw the light July 25, 1871, being a son of the well-known attorney, Capt. W. F. Pace.

Frank Pace, after receiving his initiatory training in the public schools of his native county, finished his education in the State University at Fayetteville, Arkansas, which institution he left at the age of sixteen, while in his junior year, and at once took up the study of law with his father, in Harrison, and on the day he was nineteen years old he was admitted to the bar. He at once began practicing in Harrison, but after a short time located in Yellville, where he has since been located and where he has built up an exceptionally large practice, in fact one of the largest in that section of the State. He is also the leading attorney of the county, is keen, shrewd and quick-witted, and presents his cases with masterly skill before judge and jury.

He is a candidate for prosecuting attorney of the Fourteenth Judicial District, and owing to the prominent position which he holds and to his popularity will without doubt be elected. The most of his attention is given to criminal law, in which he has been exceptionally successful. He has always been a stanch Democrat in politics, has faithfully supported the men and measures of that party, and as a citizen is decidedly public-spirited and gives substantial aid to all worthy enterprises.
