murder in Pemiscot count. V
"We would like to know just what
per cent, local option lias reduced
crime in general in Pemiscot county,
including that of bootlegging and tin
illegal sale of whiskey and beer, a
these are law violations?
"We would like to have a statement
from the records of the circuit court
and from each police judge and magis

"We would also like to know how
much local option has reduced the
cost of criminal prosecutions in Pemi
Now, if the above is not plain and
to the point, we would liku to know
the reason why, and wo are eonlident
that it is sufficiently clear to bailie all
efforts of the biased, prejudiced and
conjurers to successfully misconstrue,
and futher, that no person of normal
mental faculties will attempt to mis
construe or misstate it.
It is a question that we have a pcr
perfect right to ask, and we are en
titled to the answer, even if we have
to go personally and prepare if from
the records of the county.
Hut the Pemisot Argus last week
takes the "editor" of the Herald to
task in a pei'honal strain, and reels off
a full column of sermons, lectures,
generalities and soothsayings, the
full purposes and intents of which was
tolaud itself at the expense of the Her
ald. But the little scheme will not
Our question must lie answered, and
no evasions will do.
We would be glad if the Argus
could answer our question and would
greatly appreciate the answer, but the
Argus must not attempt to draw us
into a controversy. It there is any
thing we detest it i a newspaper dis
pute and wrangle, and for our part
we are not going to give any occasion
for a misunderstanding we are going
to conline our remarks to facts that
concern the public.
To .show the manner in which the
Argus approaches the Herald, we
quote the following:
"THK KDITOR of theilaUi Herald

Answer out-question, Argus. Don't
skiimish around with opinions. Our
question would not "lead you to be

cord and free will. And as for our
'argument," how do you expect us to
produce the argument until you or some
one furnish us with the information
asked for, as the grounds upon which
to base an argument? We are not
at this time dealing in opinions. This
county has now had local option go
ing on four years, and we want to
know what the results have been, not
individually, as a private citizen -not
as "editor" -but n- a public mat
ter, for the benefit of all the people,
who have a right to this information
and the Hati Herald has a right and
is dut hound to give it to them. If
the Pemiscot Argus can give this in
formation we will appreciate the favor

THOSK NIGHT UID15RS.
The bright and sparkling Osceola
(Ark.) Press takes the Herald to task
on the advise given the editor of the
Lake County (Tenn.) News, und goes
us one better. Here is the gem:
"There's no harm in being a hero,
And it's all right to stand your
Hut think of the odds against you
And remember where Rankin was
"It's easy to stand in the sunlight
And talk to the man in the shade,
Hut it's different addresssing a night
For he honors no law that is made.
"And if we had been you; dear bro
ther, We would havegonelishing that day
And we wouldn't have stopped on
Not for love or for pay.
"And if we received such a letter
As the one you are braving so well,
We'd have our hind legs greased, not
And we'll simply runlikel."
As a rule the newspaper does about
a hundred times as much inducing
people to trade in their home town as
the merchant does inducing his home
patrons to take the paper. It is the
merchant's interest to extend the cir
culation of the paper as in addition
to its influence in securing him trade,
it places his ads before more people
in the town and surrounding country
than any other 'medium. He can
reach people cheaper through the pa
per than he can pay postage on cir
culars Morrilton Democrat.
The better and more intelligent
class of people in Pemiscot county are
sick, tired and disgusted with the
many distasteful newspaper spats that
have occured in Pemiscot count.v , and
tlioso responsible for them are fast be
coming in disfavor. There is a right
way and a wrong way to stay favora
bly before the people.
