THE 1IAYTI HERALD
Published Weekly, on Thursdays.
81.00 a Year In Advance.
Entered aH second-class matter Oct.

Ma., undor tlio act of Marah 3, 1879.
Eleven years ago wo hail our first
experience in the newspaper business
in llayti as a partner In tho Argus,
the first Ihsuo of which was March 28,
18!)8. Unfortunately, tho vacillating
tendencies at work in the county at
that time were rather discouraging in
many respects, and we sold the busi
ness. From that time on the vicissi
tudes of the Argus wore many, until
finally it was moved over to Carulh
ersville, where it turned its toes to the
But the first dajs of the Argus were
crowned with a brilliant success, as
was also a period in its life toward
its close, when for about three years
it was again under the management of
ne of its founders, C.S.York, who
sold tho paper tho second, time to go to
California for bis health.
Since disposing of our interest in
tho Argus in 18!)'J we havo had many
mansions to wish we had never done
so and just before it was revived by
the Caruthcrsville company a little
more than a year ago wo offered a
good, round price for it, to move it
back to its old home, but were denied
We wanted to take our first love
back because wo had learned by a sad
experience that few countries were
equal to Southeast Missouri as a
place to live and for a small newspa
per no better place than llayti could
Since 18!)!), however, wo hope tho ex
perience we have had may be worth
much to us, as we have seen much of
tho country and had newspaper ex
perience not only in our own state,
but from Tennessee to California.
So in coming buck again to our old
homo to start a new paper we came
with the accumulation of years of
experience and being thoroughly ac
quainted with the people and the field,
wo are pleased to say that the new
ness of the paper has not been notice
able, but on the other hand the peo
ple took to it in an active, business way,
and the start was made without a
hitch. This speaks volumes for the
people of I Taj ti and shows that they
are ready and willing to help in every
good cause; and shows, too, that the
fruits of a well-spent life are its own
reward and the 22 years spent among
tho people of Pemiscot county has not
been spent In vain. So in starting
in tho year 1!)0!) with the most flatter
ing prospects of success, we thank one
and all for their liberal support and
hope to merit a continuance of same.
States, having been used by tho Nows
paper Unions and tho American Press
Association, tho latter uccordlng tho
letter excellent treatment, and good
results are already coming In. Tho
new rules, which seem to go beyond
tho law and strike a deadly blow at
new publications, seem to bo in tho
tracks of the spirit arrogated in some
of tho injunction proceedings and tend
to show that where great olllclal power
has been vested those so Invested
havo became intoxicated with tho
Roosevelt regime and have went fur
ther against the constitutional rights
of American citizen than any timo in
history, and the olllclal and the court
Is superior to the law of tho. land.
We have a letter from the third as
sistant postmaster general, however,
that somewhat beclouds "form .'1500,"
for which tho department have offered
so many excuses. If wo have the cash
to pay the postage on our papers,
aren't we just as good as Sears &
Roebuck, who are not confined to
mailing 10 per cent, over their regu
lar list of catalogues?
This town has always been infested
with a lot of "mushsoom business"
of various kinds that springs up in
the season that Is most suitable to it,
gets the best of its particular season
in trade, then closes up and leaves tho
permanent man to struggle along
through all the dull season.
This does not seem altogether fair,
and as the town needs the revenue and
the home man the protection, it seems
it would be a good idea to so adjust
the license as to serve both purposes.
One of the principles of business is
protection from unfair competition,
and about the only way to get this
protection is through tho license sys
tem, vigorously inforced, and the
town gets pay for the protection it
gives and increases its revenue.
Some of the special businesses in
llayti have asked us to agitate this
question, and ask for a license in a
larger sum, payable twelve months
No one should think hard of us for
occasionally leaving out a fow items,
or any particular Item. Wo can only
do so much and got so much in the
paper, and when tho limit is reached
wo havo to quit.

We acknowledge receipt of numbers

excollent ability and seems to havo a

this new enterprise even more liberally.
We can never have a beautiful town,
a clean, inviting, attractive town,
with shady streets, grassy parks and
lawns and cozy corners until we have
a stock law. Hayti is better in every
other way than many towns that havo
stock laws. Chaffee- is just now mak
ing its old stock law stronger. Ca
ruthcrsville has had a stock law for
several years. It is timo for Hayti to
wako up and get to doing something,
and one of the best things this spring
is to go to planting trees and taking
other stops to keep up with tho other
towns around us to shnro our part of
tho gain in population of the people
who want city homes.
There is no time to lose. Old Rip
Van Winkle certainly has had his

No one can put up a just claim
against tho stock law. No ono has a
moral right to turn their stock, their
cattlo and their hogs upon their neigh
bors or tho public. The very instant
your cow or your old town back sow
passes out of your gate off of your
premises it is on tho premises of oth
ors or tho public. Every ono should
earo for their own holdlncs and not
oxpect thoir neighbors or tho public to
do so for them.
Give us tho stock law and wo will
havo bottor fed stock, a nicer town
and bettor and more agreeable neigh
bors. And the building of barns and
stables ought to be regulated.
