THE HAYTI HERALD.
HAYTI, MISSOURI, THURSDAY, MARCH 25, 1909.
TO PROSPECT FOR OIL COOPERS GET 20 YEARS
HOMESTEAD 320 ACRES
Wo takes tliu following from the Cu
ruthei'svillo Twice-a-Week Democrat,
as wo bee several well-known Hayti
people a 10 mentioned and the article
will doubtless be interesting:
A preliminary organization of the
Southeast Missouri Development com
pany was affected in St. Louis Thurs
day afternoon. The purpose is to
develop the mineral resources, partic
ularly with respect to natural gas and
oil, of Pemiscot county.
The following comprise the members
of the committee of organization: C. I
W. Johnson, St. Louis; T. P. Russell,
i ape uirarcioau: ltussen nros., uuyii:
V. A. Ward, Caruthersville; John II.
Cronan, Hayti and C. II. "VVetmore,
St. Louis. Leasers have already '
started to work and it is believed the
company will secure options on 40,000
acres of land.
Saturday the jury in the Cooper
Carmackcase at Nashville returned a
verdict of murder in the second degree
and assessed the punishment of the
Coopers at 20 years eacli in the
penitentiary. They were immediately
released on $25,000 bonds, pending
argument for a new trial.
This verdict seems to be a very
reasonable one, and indicates that
non-reading and uneducated men are
sometimes capable men, and probably
in this instance their decision was
School Election April 6.

several others of Caruthersville. pur
chased the old Farmers Mercantile
property, near the depot, and will
commence in about two months a fine
up-to-date two story, brick or concrete
building. This is the beginning of a
new growth for Steele. Humor has
hinted that a hoop factory will be here
in the near future. There is plent of
elm near here and in lact, more than
any factory could use in ten years.
Did you over ramble through a well
kept cemetery and admire the nice
monuments and tombstones, all nicely
lettered and giving the names of those
resting there? There are few who have
not. and all of us will heave a sigh
of regret as we pass the unmarked
graves, sunken und moss-grown, and
we wonder and would like to know
who rests beneath this and that little
bunch of sod. Just so with many
towns. Strangers walk down the
streets and read the signs and admire
the pretty show windows, but now and
then they pass a door unmarked and
the windows hedimmed with 11 v specks
and cobwebs, where old lithergy dens.
It is even so with the home newspaper,
which goes nit to all the people round
about, and the citizens read and
admire the nice ads oi the live mer
chants; they plan where they are going
to buy when they come to town, and
the merchant who does not advertise
lives in an unmarked grave, so far as
the public is concerned, and sooner or
later lie, too, will sleep beneath the
sod, with nothing to mark hif. resting
place or to show that he lias been
lorgotten and gone and few there are
who care, in this busy world, where
only those in the hand wagon take
part in tin- music.
The bill providing that settlers can
(lie on three hundred and twenty acres
in the future instead of one hundred
and sixty us here to fore has passed
botli houses and is on its way for the
president to sign. Some dispute was
occasioned on its passage and the bill
was referred to a coference. The
conference report was favorable to the
enlargement of the homesteads and
so nothing is left to make it a law
except the signature of the president.
The bill effects the following states; I
New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, i
California, Idaho, Montana, Wyom
ing, Nevada, Oregon and Washing

The county school supervision bill
was signed by Gov. Hadley shortly be
fore noon Mar. 15. It thus becomes
the first law passed by the present
legislature. Argument against the
bill was made by Representative Peter
II. IIuck. of Ste. Genevieve, on the
ground that it is not clour on the annual
appropriation of WOO by the state to
each county. There is a clause in the
bill whl'h provides that county com
missioners elected in April shall serve
as county superintendents until the end
of their terms, when the law becomes
operative 00 days after the legislature

Elsewhere in those columns will be
found an open letter fiom H.A. Dortch,
which was called out by the letter of a
"tax paying citizen" relative to the
city hall, about which there has been
no much complaint. He does himself
justice in this letter and we hope eveiy
one will lead it. He is the city alder
man for the second ward, and the only
ollicer of the city holding over for
THE PROOF OF THE PUDDDING
Having been led to believe the proof of the "pudding is
in the eating thereof," I wish to say the goods listed below
speak for themselves. This county is filled with intelligent
people who know what they want to eat or don't want to eat,
without the advise or help of a guardian angel. Try these
goods and be convinced. You know a good article.
