Wo submit the foregoing to
our eouuty court in behalf of tho
people of Pemiscot county, many
of whom take but one of the
county papers or for other mis
ons do not rend the paper having
the contract, and consequently
never see the county legal adver
tising. We believe that it would
serve the best interest of the
general public for the officials to
remain free from contract or
other obligations and follow the
simple letter of Ihe law, and the
law not requiring permanent
contracts, we suggest that the
county court reconsider its in-
tion 2M'1 Kevised Statutes HHV.l, j tent ion to let the county printing

courts of record to 'provide suit

and that the same shall be paid
for by the county.
"That provision of section rHN,
.supra, which provides that 'the
public officials shall accept the
most advantageous terms that
can be obtained, not exceeding
the rates limited in the preced
ing section, clearly means that
such public officers shall take in
to consideration the price, circu
lation and general objects of the
statutes in publishing such ad
vertisements and publications.

term 'advantageous,' when used

"Dear Sir: I am in receipt of
your inquiry of the With inst. re-
Yours very respectfully,
Ku.IOTT W. aIa.iok.
Well, that seems to be rubbing
it in a little.
We have lived in this county a
great many years, coming here
in l.ssT, and we number some ol
the people of Caruthersvillo
among our best friends and
warmest supporters. We have
never lost sight of our friends,
and have always been more than
ready and willing to show them
J every courtesy and consideration
within our power.
We can say for our friends in
Caruthersvillo. that the IIayti
Herald owes more to them than
to any people anywhere in Pemi
scot county, and that without
their aid and assistance tho ex
istence' of The IIayti Herald at
first would have been doubtful.
In fact, we have lived in Caruth
ersvillo and have been a citizen of
that town, and when we first set
foot on Pemiscot county soil, in
September, a quarter of a cen
tury ago, it was in Caruthersville.
Since then we have been a friend
to Caruthersvillo and Caruthers
ville has been a friend to us.
What we said, we said, and it
is no man's business. No paper
has a right to criticise our friend
ly relations and our friendly feel

'County Printing' only means the

The printing of the ordinary

ly apparent, and that the word
should be given and used in its
broad, legal sense, as defined,
and that the printing could not be
let with reference to price only,
without defeating the general
purposes of the publication of
notices, and if the law did so pro
vide and the clerks of courts of
record were compelled to let the
printing to the lowest bidder, the
paper with the least circulation
would have the advantage in being
able to do the work at the least
price, would succeed in obtaining
same, and great injustice would re
sult to those interested in the mat
ter litigated. The publication of
legal notices is a method of ser
vice upon those interested in the
matter before the court, and jf
