WAR DANCE POSTPONED
FIVE OF FAMILY KILLED.! TO CATCH THIEVES
Red Men Barbecue, Picnic and
Celebration Set for September.
DO NOT GET
At the las! moment it has
been found advisable to post
pone the Red Men war dance
and picnic to some time in
September. This is keenly
regretted by ever citizen in
Hayti and by the home tribe.
The chief reason for the
postponement was the delay
occasioned by waiting for the
return of Organizer H. L.
Davidson to the work, who
is sick at his home in Indiana.
It was hoped that he would
be able to return in time to
give the matter his personal
attention, and not being able
to return until too late to
complete arrangements for
Aug. 20 and 21, it is found
necessary to name a new
Of course there :ire other reas
ons win the jiostponiiient is de
sirable, especially on account
of the excessively hot weather
and the unusual amount of sick
ness. The reason the new date in
September is not named is to
save possible mistakes or dis
appointments. When ail ar
rangements are completed and
the organization perfected, the
now date ean be well advertised
and evei'.vthinu pushed to a success.

While driving to church at Frisbee
Station Sundu.v nijjht, live children of
A. IT. Hyde, a farmer, weie lulled It.v

When the accident occured, the
father was at home with his only other
child, a boy of 14. He is a widower,
bis wife dy in,r about two weeks afo.
Engineer Hardin, in a statement
at tiiu inquest, says lie bad whistled
for the crossing, which was :i narrow
lane between fields of cotton and corn.
As he approached the crossing lie saw
something white on the track, ami as
he got nearer, he could distinguish a
man standinjr up in a wagon, whipping
the team, hut at that instant the engine
struck the wagon near the front wheels.
To Save His Flour, L. C. Averill
Sets Novel Trap.
One night last week thieves broke
into the rear of L. C. Averill's store
and carried away a lot of Hour, etc.,
and now "Jack" lias arranged to get
een. and the next thief that enters
his .store will go out of the world
quicker than he came in it.
"Jack" has set a trap an arrange
ment of nitro glycerine that will blow
a man into Kingdom Come quicker
than you can wink your eye. It is so
arranged that a thief cannot enter the
room without getting his light put out.
and is kept set only at night, the wir
ing being carefully removed when the
store is opened mornings and every
thing placed on safety.
Now, if "Jack" manages to keep
out of his own trap, he is liable to go
down to the store some morning to
lind a funeral on his hands.
Oil Company Forming.
We have it from what seems to bo
reliable authority that there is liable
to be some lively developments in the
oil prospecting business in Hayti and
Pemiscot county in the near future.
We have not been able to gather any
definite particulars for this week, but
are informed that theie will be some
thing to say as soon as the promoters
can lind time to talk.
A company is being formed, and a
meeting of the signers was called at
Caruthersville for Wednesday at 7:00
John II. Cronan is the chief pro
moter, and he has worked long and
hard to get the people interested and
hopes to get sullicient leases to justify
the start in boring. Of course If peo
ple will not lease their land no one
will ever make the test, and those
who desire to see oil and gas devel
oped in Pemiscot county must make
these leases, or it will never be done.
To Cure Alfalfa Hay.
H. MoCluie, of the U. S. Hay
Forage Department, is at the
Alfalfa Farm putting in a plant for
the artificial dry lug and curing of al
falfa, which it is thought has already
been proven a success, and will give
the hay about 'M mote nutriment.
A building, or kiln, about 12-.'!0 feet
is being erected, and the tests may ex
tend over a period of two months.
We hope to publish all the parti hilars
It is the intention of the department
to test two systems for the artificial
curing of alfalfa, giving chemical
tests., etc.. and the fact that these
tests are to lie made on the Alfalfa
Farm goes to prove that the Russell
Brothers have been active.

Wants Smiths Pardoned.
Congressman Crow is urging Presi
dent Taft to evpediate consideration
of the application for pardon of the
Smiths of Scott county, who are now
serving sentences for peonage. The
president lias given Mr. Crow no de
finite answer. Mr. Crow has urged
thepicsident to stir up the attorney
general in the matter, hut it appears
that the attorney-general is of the
opinion that there are many other ap
plications just as important and that
he is inclined to consider them in

Don't Forget Your Name.
Sign your name. This week the
Herald leceived a very nice letter from
a iriend, which was not signed, and
for that reason we could not publish
it. It does not matter how important
a letter is or who writes it, if it is not
signed it will not be published. This
is an iron-clad rule with printers. It
does not mean that jour name will be
published, but that the printer must
have your signature as a guarantee of
good faitli and protection to himself.
Don't forget this.

Thaw Still Insane.
Harry K. Thaw lias again been de
nied freedom, and it is the opinion of
most people that If Thaw in as crazy
as Jerome and the last trial judge he
ought to be kept at Mattowan the bal
ance of his natural life. But the
chances are, that the Thaws will win
out, about the time their money is
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, utCa
ruthersville. I will appreciate the
patronage of my friends and acquaint
ances, and invite you to call and see
mo when in town.
What's the use? The man who runs over himself,
gets stampeded, tears his clothes and pulls his hair every
time the world doesn't wag his way, is making his own
life a failure and the lives of others miserable.
Better get down to system find the rough places and
keep away from them. This is my motto in business. I
know that kind and courteous treatment, honest goods and
honest prices, coupled with fair dealings, will win out in the
end, and will make my customers permanent.
It's a good thing to get acquainted. Don't limit your
self. The world is large, and people are different. I
would like for you to come to my store and learn my ways
and my prices examine my stock carefully, and I am sure
you will be pleased not only pleased, but that we will be
friends and you will be my customer, and save yourself
much worry. I take care of my customers, because their
interest and welfare is my own. See the point!
