If you arc setting the paper and have

many Binall accounts arc hurdeiiboine:
heaidcH, the amount iti a Binall matter
to you, hut huudieilH of tliciu amount
in conBiileralile to ub, and it is not fair
to expect us to w oik and lay out the
use of our money when you can easily
afford to pay up. Ho try to help ub
ulong hy prompt paymenta. You are
hound to know we need the money.
With tho next issue the Flujti Her
ald will be three monts old, and while
limit of our subscriber paid a dollar,
there were some who paid only 2.kj,
which paid for the papur for
three months. We ate not going
to tr. to push the paper on any one,
and for this reason we aie going to
make our terms cash, and unless your
Mibscription is renewed promptly when
your time is out, we will con
clude that j on do not want the paper
any longer and will stop it. So we
urge you to renew your subscription
promptly. There are also a number
who have not paid their subscription,
and as next week will be three months
that many of them have been reading
t'le paper we feel that they ought to
conio in and pay up. We need the
money, and as the amounts are small
t ) each individual we know they can
easily afford to pay , and hundreds of
them amount to considerable to us.
Every person in Hay ti ought to take
the paper. 'The town needs it and it will
help the town. Tho paper has now
been running long enough for you to
see and know what it is. The hardest
part of its life is over and it will im
prove with age; it is here as one of the
fixtures of Hajti, to stay, and if ou
are a good uiticn you will give it
your support. So do not wait and
delay and procrastinate, but remem
ber that it costs lots oT money to run
a printing ollice. We haw to pay
spot cash for every thing we gut, ty pe,
' paper, ink, height, expieis, rents,
fuel, groceries, clothing and medicine,
and of coune we must get this money
back for what we do, no matter wheth
er it is subscriptions, ad vet tiling or
lob printing. Jt all costs money to
pioduec, and it takes it all to make a
living." Stand by your homo paper
and it will stand by yon.
Last week the Pemiscot Press was
sold to W. R. Lacoy , owner of tho
Democrat. Tho Press will be discon
tinued. Tho news comes not as a
surprise, as three papers are too much
for t'aruthersville, and wo think it
was sound business for an agreement
to bo arrived at whereby one of them
could absorb the other and thus give
the merchants and business men a
chance to systemi.e their advertising
and patronage. On tho other hand,
we regrotto see tho present management
of tho Press pass off of the journalistic
stago in Pemiscot county, feeling that
they had just claim on account of their
long service and acquaintance with tho
people, and for teal newspaper work
tho county is the loser. Mr. Lacey,
however, is a good man, and a wise,
conservative business manager, and if
lie will now take advantage of tho
opportunities that aro before him
before some other person concludes to
blurt the third paper in Uuriithorsville,
it will not oul Iks better for him, but
for the entlrocounty, as the county has
sullicient newspapers to cover tho Held,
especially tho south end of tho county.
We hope Mr. Lacey will bo equal to
tho occasion and will profit accord
About nine times out of ton you can
Judge a town by Its newspaper just as
you can judge a man by his horse or
his dog. Whenever you see a paper
como up all shaggy, its columns half
filled, ads all falling to pieces, tho
inako-up and presswork all on tho
bum, you can just mark it down tlmt
tho publisher Is half-foil, cannot afford
underclothes or pay his bills and Is
' "cussed" by every man In town, yet
the chances a re he gives them a better
paper than they deserve, for tlioy do
not deserve any at all. If you want a
paper to do you and your town credit
get back of it and push, pay your
subscription promptly, advertise, give
It your job -printing, tell the editor
the news. How do you expect tho
poor devil to do any tiling, ,bo any
thing or get out a respcctablo paper
unless his town gives him sulllcient
support and encouragement.?
Perhaps tho hanks of the country
liavo used more government printed
envelopes than any other business
concerns, while at the same time they
derive us great benefit from the coun
try printer, if not greater than any
other business institution in the bene
fit the newspaper does tho town and
country in advancement along edusa-
tional lines, but Charlie Wells of the
Hank of Huyti tells that he is not of
that kind, and as long as Huyti has
a printing ollice his work shall be
done at home. This is right, and espe
cially in the line of printing, as your
home paper generally needs more than
Maiden News: "It seems to he only
a waste of newspaper space to write
against mail order houses. One of
our best fiiends and one whom we
always patronized in Ids business, sent
out of town the other day for some
printed matter that we could easily do
in this ollice ut the same price lie had
to pay to the mail order man. ' ' That's
nothing. We know an assistant post
master who drums the business people
for envelope printing for the govern
ment, and dont get a penny not even
a pleasant look for his trouble.
The sale of tho Pemiscot Press to
the Democrat last week still leaves
four papers in the county. The Her
ald regrets to see the old Press pass
out, and we do not feel that our inter
ests are advanced. We have a Held
entirely to ourselves in tho north half
of tho county, and the competition at
Caruthersvillo or Steele does not touch
us. "We have a free Held and a large
one, and our business is expanding
far beyond our expectations.
