tendent II. A. Gass, anion;,' other
things recommends a pension for old
and disabled teachers. Now, we are
opposed to pensions on general princi
ples, and more in particular in this
connecion. There is no more reason
why a school teacher should draw a
pension than any other person. We,
for one, are proud of the independence
of our country, which ought to incul
cate an independent spirit, and we
are opposed to anything that will fos
ter or create dependence even to the
old and feeble, who in this free country
can generally mako their way, if they
will, which has been proven by the old,

II. L. GufFy ban been appointed post
mnBter at this place. Mr. Gully camo
hero from Indiana in the fall of 1000,
to look after land interests of clients,
and by strict attention to business has
built up a nice practice in law. IJelng
from Indiana, he was naturally a Re
publican and the postollico comes to
him as a rewatd for faithful party ser
vice. He was his party's nominee for
representative in the last election and
though defeat wus expected, ho did his
part in cutting down the Democratif
majority as a result of which one lone
Republican waB elected, breaking tho
record in Pemiscot county.
One of the latest enterprises aided
by him is the organization of the
Ilayti Real Estate Company.
We predict that Mr. Gufiy will make
an cflicient odicer and that lie bus only
entered in the political arena. We
wish him success in his new undertaking.
Tho' great crowd and jam at tho
postollico Sunday afternoons when the
mail is opened is becoming almost
unbearable, and the postollico will
have to do one of two things, get a
larger room or to leave the doors open
for a longer time. The fact is, the
mail ought to bo opened at noon.
Much important mail is received, here
on the noon train, and especially Sun
day papers from tho south, und if this
mail was opened it would leave less
work for the afternoon hour, so the
postollico attendants would not be hurt
by this change, as they have to handle
tho mail anyway.
J. L. D irris has more concrete walk
than any man in town, and what John
Dorris has done others can do. There
is no excuse fortius town to dragaloni;
in the old rut, and if tle people expect
to do so the sooner they can got rid of
the Herald thebettfr, for we are going
to make a light for the general improve
ment of Ilayti.

Tho annual meeting of tho Bank of
Ilayti was had yesterday, and tho re
sults of tho past year's business was
highly gratifying. The' earning ca
pacity lias been good, and the general
outlook is encouraging.
This is tho oldest bank in Haytl,
and has the largest capital and surplus,
and the stockholders are all good, sub
C. V. Wells, Jr., the retiring cashier,
has done good work, and he carries
with him tho conlidcnco and good-will,
not only of tho bank olllcials, but of
the public generally.
All tho old officers were elected, ex
cept J. D. Long as director. L. L
heller was olected in placo of Mr.
The resignation of C. P. Wells, Jr.
was accepted and T. A. McNail entered
upon the duties of cashier.
A lady went into I. Kohn's store and
blushingly asked Arthur Allen if ho
"had any of those clastic bands, capa
ble of being elongated and adjusted at
pleasure, and usedby tho feminine por
tion of mankind for putting around the
lower extremitos of their locomotive
members tokeop in the proper position
and the required altitude, habilaments
of their tibias." Arthur had to be
fanned for about two hours.
Tuesday Gov. Patterbon of Ten
nessee vetoed the state-wide prohibi
tion bill. In his message be said tho
bill was a violation of the party plat
form, sot aside the recorded will of the
people, destroyed property and that no
arbitrary prohibition bill would ever be
obeyed. Opponents of the bill claim
t hat they have enough votes to defeat
its second passage, but another state
wide bill to prohibit the manufacture
of intoxicating drinks was passed, to
go into effect January 10, 1910. Later:
The senate voted to pass the bill over
tho governor's veto. The vote was .
2D to 13. It now goes to tho house.
