THE HIGH WATER.
CIVIC LEAGUE PROGRAM.
Commercial Appeal, July 18. While
Oil percent of nil Southeast Missouri
is protected from Hoods by a levee
v stein almost as solid as the Rocky
Mountains, there is a small strip of
farms on the river side of the embank
ment on which the crops will doubtless
bo totally destroyed. On the islands,
and on the Tennessee side, the water
is creeping1 up, inch by inch, is spread

luxuriant crops of corn and cotton.
The finishing1 workings had been done,
and there w as never a prettier pros
pect. Only a few days longer and the
saddened farmers will behold the
bright emerald of their fieldseonverted
into a watery waste, and after a little,
when the water recedes, into mud-baked,
sun-seorehed Hats, giving otf bad odor.-,

heaviest on the tenant class who will
be left in debt and without the means
of support. Fortunately the number
of sullorers will not be large, but they
are. nevertheless, as much sufferers as
were the victims of Messina, Johns
town, Galveston or Jan Francisco.
It was hoped the Hood season of June
would be safely passed, but the rains
c.tme on the upper Missouri when

now being done, while the skies are
clear and smiling. But the farmer is

How many people in Hajli would
like to see the Hayti Hei.ild go like
the old Ha.vti Signal in 18!7 and
move out of town?
How many would like to repeat
the experience of the Argus with live
tailuies in seven years, and then to
to end the misery, move out of townV
The Herald lias by far the best and
most complete and expensive outlit
ever in Hay ti, and the business has
been the most successful, and con
sidering the fact that we started on
the graves of six newspaper failures,
we think that every citien of Hayti
should feel proud. But theie are
some old chronic soreheads and
kickers bete who cannot keep from
souring, and just now they aie mak
ing wry faces. We are feeling pretty
good, however, and if these old bats
will hold up their bunds we would just
like to count them and toss each one
a piece of brimstone.
Better get in line, boys: you'll feel
better, look butler and be better, and
then you'll shaie the things you envy

"I suffered so with Nervous
Prostration that I thought there
was no use trying to get well. A
friend recommended Dr. Miles'
Nervine, and although skeptical
at first, I soon found myself re
covering, and am to-day well."
MRS. D. I. JONES,
5800 Broadway, Cleveland, O.
Much sickness is of nervous
origin. It's the nerves that
make the heart force the blood
through the veins, the lungs
take in oxygen, the stomach di
gest food, the liver secrete bile
and the kidneys filter the blood.
If any of these organs are weak,
it is the fault of the nerves
through which they get their
strength. Dr. Miles' Nervine is
a specific for the nerves. It
soothes the irritation and assists
in the generation of nerve force.
Therefore you can hardly miss
it if you take Dr. Miles' Nervine
when sick. Get a bottle from
your druggist. Take it all ac
cording to directions, and if it
does not benefit he will return
MURDER AT STEELE,
Last Friday near : teele Arch Wil
liams shot and instantly killed A. J.
The particulats to this atlaii aie
haid to get straightened out, but lrom
the best information we can get, it
heems that theie was a grudge between
them, and that not lung ago Brown
shot Williams, vvoundii.g him slightly,
for which Bum 11 was under bond to
thu circuit 00111 1.
Brown was icnting land from Wil
liams, and at the time of the killing
Williams went out to the lieid wheie
Blown was at woik and nidcied him
to lemove his borBe from pasluiiug on
the land. Blown replied that he ex
pected to pay hih lent on the ground
anil would not remove the home. At
this Williams raised his gun and liied
at clobe range, .shooting Brown's brains
It was thought that Williams had
made his escape, but lie came in to
Caruthersville that night and sur
rendeied to the sheriff.
"HEAP BIG INJUN."
The time for the groat "Scalp
Dance," barbecue, picnic and big two
days celebration by the Improved
Order of Red men, at Hayti, Friday
and Saturday, August 'JO and 21, is
rapidly drawing near, and Hayti
should begin preparations to entertain
Red Men and their families and
friends will bo here from many places,
and it is expected to have the great
est two days in the history of the city.
There Is no better order than the
Red Men ministers and the better
class generally being members and
the people of Haytr can congratulate
themselves on securing this represen
tative gathering of the best people in
Pemiscot county and Southeast Mis
souri, and should give these visitors
a royal reception.
This celebration is for everybody.
The whole country is invited to turn
out and everybody have the time of
their lives. There will be a big bar
becue and everything that is good to
eat and drink, and many amusing and
But perhaps the Red Men them
selves, dressed in their gaudy cos
tumes, will be worth it all, and surely
will pay any one to come miles to see.
MURDER AT COOTER.
On July lti at a dance at O'ooter, Ed
Decker was struck on the head with a
club by Herchell Webb, from the effects
of which he died Monday morning.
After Webb struck Decker he tried to
escape, but was arrested as he was at
tempting to board a steamer at Cotton
wood Point, Mo. lie was brought to
Caruthersville and placed in jail.
Webb was a married man and about
.io years old, while Decker was IS and
single. The men weie friends up until
the night of the difficulty which result
ed in the killing. It appears their
quarrel was brief and over a trivial
matter. The coroner's jury is en
deavoring to uncover the real facts.
Last Saturday morning while return
ing from Caruthersville witli a car of
ice, the switch engine was wrecked
just opposite the the Houck depot,
the engine leaving the track and the
tender and car being derailed.
The fault could not be that of the
trainmen, as the rails spread at the
switch, where for a distance of ten ties
on either side theie was no inside
Engineer Finch and Conductor Gor
don weie in charge of the train. No
one was seriously hurt and only slight
delay in tr.illlc was occasioned.
New and heavier steel has been laid
on the Gulf branch of the Frisco as
far as Pascola, and will be continued
on to Kennott. The old steel is being
sold for use on the new road from
Kennett to Piggott, Ark.
This is a great improvement for this
very important branch of the Frisco,
and will enable heavier and faster
engines to bo used.
Most of the tralllc over this branch
comes by way of Havti.
Ed Mitchell and Miss Rose Ayers
were married last week. This re
leased Mitchell from jail. It seems
the couple were willing to marry all
the while, but the parents of the girl
could not give their consent. It is
hoped no mistake has been made In
allowing them to marry, and It may
prove for the best.
A NEW PHOTOGRAPHR.
While driving to Gayoso the other
day, Misses Carrie Richmond and
Roxio Lewis had quite a runaway.
Going down the embankment of the
levee, their horse began to kick and
run, and the girls sought safely on the
ground. They escaped without injury,
but the buggy and harness are bey ond
C. R Gray, vice-president of the
Frisco, and son, and Dit Hackney,
were at Hay ti Friday in their private
car. The Frisco has 121X1 acres of
land near Hayti which they are going
to improve, and place a house on every
80 acres. Clayton Williams has the
contract to build the llrst house.
R. W. Gunlon and family of Sinith
vllle, Ark., are here visiting the family
of Mrs. Gunion's uncle, Win. Krah
w inkle. Mr. Gunlon is a newspaper
man and photographer, and has de
cided to locate in Hayti with a studio,
in the rooms formerly occupied by
Culpepper and Jackson, next door to
the Bank of Hayti. A studio ought to
pay in Hayti.
I take this opportunity to inform the
public that I have purchased the sa
loon business formerly known as the
Tom Johnson Half-Way House, ut Ca
ruthersville. I will appreciate the
patronage of my friends and acquaint
ances, and Invite you to call and see
me when In town.
In the hall game at Stcelo
ago Sunday, the Hayti boys won by
12 to 10 in the 11th inning. The prin
cipal feature of the game wus Williams
as catcher, and this being his llrst ex
perience as a catcher it is said he de
serves great credit for the manner in
which he worked.
A great many times wo aio asked to
publish little jokes, etc., and other

There's always one store in every
town that pulls just a little harder for
your trade than some other storethat
appreciates your trade just a little more
and offers you just a little better induce
ments? Certainly you do.
Does it not seem right to yourself
that you should buy your goods as cheap
ly as possible and get full value for every
dollar 3'ou spend? Certainly so.
Then is it not plain to you that I could
not afford to advertise these facts to you
and tell you of my methods unless I could
make good and prove that I am right.
Think this over and come to my store
and see for your self. Let's talk matters
over and figure on a bill of goods.
Come and convince rour self that my
store is a good place to trade.
