HAYTI, MISSOURI, THURSDAY, AUGUST 5, 1909.
CITY COUNCIL MEETS.
KNOWN IN HAYTI.
KILLED -BY TRAIN.
City council met In regular session
Monda.v night, and attended to con
sidoiable business. Several hills
weie allowed, and two new ordinan
ces introduced, one to prohibit hogs
from running at largo and one to cre
ate the oillcu of pound keeper. A pe
tition was brought in pra.v ing for the
ordinances bj Morcuu Gaskins, and
tho.v weie introduced by Geo. Dorris.
On leading the first ordinance it was
found to include horses and mules in
its provisions, which Major Huokle.v
objected to and erased, after which
botli otdinances passsed the second
The ordinances are to take eflect
January I, which allows ample tune
lor the people to dispose of their hogs
und p repute to take care of them.
The council all seemed to favor tills
law, which ought to be greath pleas
ing to the people, as it shows the jnes
ent hoard is going to be progressive
and enact laws that vvill put Ilajti to
the lront. Alter taking this llrst stop
the ne.t will bo easier.
We keen I. v legiet that the aldermen
weie not pei milled to vote on the pro
vision of the oidinance prohibiting
hoiaes and mules from running at
large. People in town who own stock
ought to be lotced to keep it up, as its
tunning at large is dangeious to wo
men and ehildien on the stieets, and
damaging to sidewalk and ttees. We
believe the aldermen ate in favor of
this law, and if they aic thej should
ariange to vote on it. and lest assur
ed that the people will be with them.
Tlieie is also a strong sentiment in
favor of the hog law coining into eilect
immediately, and not later than Oct.
1. The sooner the better.
0. I. Wells, Jr., was appointed to
make out the ta books tor tins jear.
As all the other towns aie publish
ing their seiiii-annual statements it oc
cuis to us that Haiti should do like
wise, at their earliest possible con
venience. It lias been (juilc awhile
since a financial statement was pub
lished. The council should also take an ac
tive pat tin seeing that cleaning up
is properlv looked after and that the

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? Certainty 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 you 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 your self that m7
store is a good place to trade.
