WHEN YOUR SUBSCRIPTION EXPIRES
we will plug blue cron milk In tun
aquate which it to not fy you that the
time for whchyou paid your lubicription
has expired, and unlet! you renew at
once your paper will be stopped. We
do not want to atop your paper; we want you to get every
Itsue, but our terms are cash in advance, and If vou don't
pay up promptly we will take It for granted that you .don't
want us to send it to you and we will not push it on you
If you are getting the paper and have
not paid for it, a blue mark in this
square is to invite you to do so at
once, as our terms ure cash and so
many small accounts are burdensome:
besides, the amount is a Hinull matter
to you, but hundreds of them amount
to considerable to us, and it is not fair
to expect us to woik and lay out the
use of our money when you can easily
allbrd to pay uf. So try to help us
along by prompt payments. You are
bound to know wo need the money.
GET A NEW MAP. .
Our good friend, Willard Beebe,
editor of theColton, California, News,
"William York is now running a
paper in Hayti, Missouri, a town so
small that we can't find it on the map,
with considerable success."
Better throw away that old map and
get you a new one, Willard, or come
eastf Things move hack here. This
is a new town, started in 1895. It is
tho second town in size in the county,
and we have one of the finest schools
and the finest city hall and the only
public square In the county, besides
being the most important junction
point on the Frisco railroad between
St. Louis and Memphis, having 12
passenger trains and 10 railroad mails ,
daily and an established eating sta-
It is possible, bower, that our friend i
Beebe was looking at u Frisco map,
and in that case the name of Hayti is I
eonspieiouu by its absence, and con j
sidering the prominence necessarily
gi ven Hayti in the time card the absence
of its name on the map seems all
tho more ridiculous, and it seems to
us that this omission is inexcusable.
We are giving this matter space be
cause Mr. Beebe has spoken the words
that ought to drive the point wo have
been cotending home to every thinking
mind and to every pcrsqn that bus the
interest of their town at heart, and ,
that is that this omission of the name
of Hayti from the Frisco map is a i
serious impediment in the way of the !
growth of our town and causes hun
dreds of people who would otherwise
stop off here to puss on through and
wonder while gazing from the our
window what city they are passing.
Our people ought to demand in no un
certain terms that this impediment be
We have mentioned this matter in
these columns before, and have even I
went so far as to write a personal let
ter to a high ollicial of the railroad,
and hero is his reply:
"We appreciate that it would be de
sirable to show Hayti on tho folder
map, but this is on u small scale and
is designed rather to show tho general
territory which the lines cover.'1
Will the people be satisfied with
this excuse and consider it fair com
pensation for tho more than 87,000
donated toward the building and com
pletion of this roudV
In this same light let us turn again
to Colton, California, and see what
t to railroads can do for or against a
town. Colton is just at tho foot of the
grudo ufter you cross the mountains,
full in tho citrus belt und u most beau
tiful location. It is u beautiful little
city and every railroad entering
Southern California must pass
throuL'h her inilos and thousands of
tourists pass through these gates
overv year entirely unmindful that
there is such a city in existunce, be
cause these railroads work for every
other town and give every other
town but Colton prominence, und
many of the trainmen will even tell
travelers that they cannot get hotel
accommodation in Colton.
We do not Bay that tho Frisco is
this hard with Hayti, but wo must say
that there is a striking paruliel in many
wuys iMitween tho two towns and Mr.
Beebe will take notice of our sign "f
and ponder over its significance.
TO BUSINESS MEN.
We notice a considerable weaken
ing process among some of our ad
vertisers. Now, we are not'going to
be mealy-mouthed about this matter
at all. A' spado is a spado and brass
tacks aro brass tacks. Wo do not
expect all the mershunts to carry
largo advertisemonts all the time, but
wo do expect them to bo represented
in these columns with some space, how
over small. Wo know that it pays to
advertise, when it is done right, and
tho way to do it right is to keep at
it keep hammering in one place.
There is nothing in this spasmodic,
in and out advertising. Tho best and
most successful business men the
world has ever known were tho hardest
and most perststent advertisers. It
paid them and it will pay you, if you
will try it and stick to it, and if you
do not know just what you want leave
it to us; that is what we're hero for.
This paper is here and tho people
have done their part and done it well,
but the price of subscriptions will not
pay for the cost of producing the pa
per. It is squarely up to the buiness
men now to come to the front and see
that the paper is given a living sup
port and made a huccoss. No paper
can live and succeed without tho sup
port of advertising business men, and
we believe the business men of Hayti
will stand by their paper and see that
it is given a living support. Now is
tho time to begin.
Last week the editor of this paper
passed his forty-second milestone, and,
we are glad to say, about twenty-two
of these years have been spent tread
ing Pemiscot county soil, and wo have
yet to regret the choice for a home.
There are a great many people in
Pemiscot county who have not been
here 22 years, and only those who
have been here that long know what a
wonderful progress has been made,
and as the wheels are still turning, 22
years more will doubtless give as
great, if not greater changes.
The newest exchange to be received
is the Hayti Herald, from away down
in the southeast corner the great state
of Missouri. It is about a month
older thanthe Spirit, and is published
by Wm. York, a gentleman of experi
ence in both the editorial and mechan
ical departments of newspaper work.
It ought to, and no doubt will, become
a great and shining light for that re
mote corner of the Imperial State.

St. Francisvillo, (111.) Times: We
ure in receipt of a copy of the Hayti
Heiald u new paper published at Hayti,
Mo. It is a nice, clean little sheet,
mechanically neut and filled with news
of that section. We have no personal
acquaintance with the editor, a Mr.
York, but we see the names of several
ionueiiy Lawieuce and Wabash Coun
ty people on its pages.
Tho tlump nuisance is a matter that
could be easy remedied by the city au
thorities. There is no excuse for this
great army of professionals to be for
ever haunting the buck doors of tho
residence portion of town, and we in
sist that the city authorities take some
action looking to the protection of tho
women of our town.

paper published at St. Francisville,

paper, ably edited, and seems to be
well patronized. There is a number
of people here from this section of
Illinois, and we are glad to say they
are among our best citizens.

to take any action in that shooting
scrape of a few days ago in which ono
man and one woman was shot, then
