THE HAYTI HERALD
HAYTI, MISSOURI, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1909.
Tho other week we warned our peo
jlo against an old yruftpr who was
trying to "pull" tho citizens of Huyti
for it few dollars. Rijjht In the face of
this warning- people are tfohyr rlyht
ahead "biting" at his scheme.
'Phis old grafter has fought awfully
fihy of the Herald otllre, which allows
more fully that his scheme is a gvutx
of the rankest tyj e.

It is said that another fust merchan

importance. Already 'the tralllc is

This is the shortest route by one hour

I need the money to keep the wolf from my door and
you need the goods to keep the wolf from your door. I arn
quoting you a few items below, and beg to call your atten

quote prices on all my bargains the size of the Hayti Her

THE DITCH. This is a winter scene on the ditch where the
new dredge boat is now at work. This is the first ditch ever
made in Pemiscot county and reclaimed thousands of acres of
land and converted lakes into farms. The work now being done
widens the ditch several feet and makes it deeper. The shovel
lifts 2 1 -2 yards of earth at each stroke. Pho!o t,y lhe eh

On Tuesday of lust week, atLilbnurn,
while trying to arrest a negro, John
Hunter. Cit. Marshal Tom Woods
narrowl escaped death. The negro
shot at him, the ball striking the badge
on his hreast which turned it, but
caused a considerable bruise. The
negro was also shot, three times, but
not fatal 1.
Isn't there enough good men in Ca
ruthersv ille to make up a jury to try a
nigger, and is it necessarx to come out
to Ha.ui and take men uua from their
homes and their business and entail
this extra expense of milage and hotel
bills to secure such a jur.x? We think
not. Right in our busiest time this
week our main helper was summoned
for jur service -there vas even talk
of .summoning the editor, which would
have deprived about WW people and
all our advertisers of a paper this
week. Lutn Leller was summoned
awa from sickness in his family .
Please don't bother Us people out
here so mui-li. We have no saloons,
no boo.e. no lights, no killings.
Settle jour own affairs over there
and leave us alone -leave us in peace,
especially as those summoned here are
"old, stand-by jurymen."
