AN UNTERRIFIED DEMOCRATIC NEWSPAPER.
HAYTI, MISSOURI, THURSDAY, MAY 2, 1912.
CAUSE OF FLOOD.
TIh only way to account for
tho recent big Hood is that ovory
spring, brunch, bayou, crook and
river of all sizes between the Al
legany and Rocky mountains,
north of 10 decrees latitude, all
reached the Hood stau;e at the
same time, something that prob
ably will never happen again in
a hundred years.- Heretofore
one or more of the large rivers
would have Hoods, while the oth
ers were at low stage, which
gave us good steamboat stage on
the lower Mississippi. It's only
when tho upper streams are
booming at the same time that
we may expect big water down

Fifty years ago the New Mad
rid county people expected high
water in .1 une, which was thought
to come from the melting of the
snow in tho mountains. The writ
er does not remember but one
Hood hero as late, as the middle of
Juno during the last Til) years.
For 27) years the high water
reaches us. if it comes at all, us
ually in February and Maxell. If
high water time has changed, a.s
appears to bo tho case, there
must be a cause, but we have no
idea what it is. N. M. Record.

Judge J. S. Gossom, our pres

before the people this week as a

say that he comes with good
grace and a clear conscience.

Wo can get it, if wo will only try.
Mazier is near Hayti, and a pub
lic road to that place would open
up a section of country that is
now almost inaccossablo, in fact,
it is well nigh impossible to got
from Blazior to Hayti over the
present roads. If we over ex

lirst do our part, and if we ex
pect the country people to come

when wo will always lind the
country people ready to do their
part. A road to Blazicr would

It is an old saying in Now Mad
rid county, which seems to have
proved true, that out' farmers al
ways have bumper crops in Hood
years, not only on the submerg
ed lands but -on that large part
which the river never touches. It
is readily seen that the river
water deposits a very fertile silt,
which readily accounts for extra
big crops on land which has been
submerged but it is not so plain
why the high dry lands should
be made extra fertile.
If the usual rule prevails this
year and the increase of produc
tion is in proportion to the height
of the Hood, and good prices are
realized for the crops, our farm
ers will be riding in automobiles
next fall. New Madrid Record.

is open, and to any one who may
doubt, he offers no stronger recommendation.

WHEN SELECTING PAINT do not be influenced by the artistic design of the label, the shape of the can, or the
"few cents cheaper." THESE all have the places but you are buying the PAINT. You'll throw the can away and regret the
"few cents cheaper." The paints we sell last longer, cover more surface, hold the colors better and are really cheaper in the end.
Every can is full U. S. Standard measure.
YjfUII can do about all the painting around the place yourself unless you have special work to do or want the building painted,
U then you ought to have a firstclass painter. For ordinary jobs you will find full and complete instructions for using on
each and every can, or if you will tell us what you want to paint we will show you what to use. Paint is not used merely to make
things look better, but to make everything cleaner, more sanitary and as a protection. The bark protects the tree, the clothing pro
tects the body, birds are protected by their feathers, animals are protected with a heavy coat of hair, in fact, nature provides protec
tion in many ways so why shouldn't you protect that which is yours from the weather or kicks and knocks of everyday use with
paint, GOOD PAINT-PAINT THAT REALLY PROTECTS-AND LASTS?
A FEW THINGS THAT NEED IT.
Chairs Buggy Tables
Mantles Plows Desks
Floors Farm Machinery Bicycles
Rakes China Closets
Black Boards Buggy Tops

food for all highly polished surfaces, Pianos, Automobiles, Carriages, Furnituie, etc. It cleans, polishes and veneers. Per

Dry Goods, Groceries.
and all that go to make up a general
store will be found at our place, where
the price and quality is always right.
No matter how good the paint or varnish may be, it cannot be properly used unless you
