The Bertig brothers, from Paragould, built the railroad that passed through Cardwell. In fact, they named Cardwell for a Mr. Cardwell that worked for them in their Paragould headquarters. The railroad was named the Paragould and Southeastern Railroad until the St. Louis-Southwestern (Cotton Belt) Railroad bought out the Bertigs. The rail line was always referred to as "The P&SE", even after the Cotton Belt took over and until the line was abandoned in 1975. Among the other interests of the Bertig company were timbering, cotton gins, handle and stave mills, a large mercantile store in Paragould, and a large sportsman's camp, on the St. Francis river that was patronized by rich sportsmen from all over the country. These hunters used to kill so many ducks that the staff at the Bertig's hunting lodge would have to clean the ducks, stuff them in wooden barrels, and ship them, by rail, to St. Louis and other points.
