AN UNTERRIFIED DEMOCRATIC NEWSPAPER.
HAYTI, MISSOURI, THURSjDA'Y, SEPTEMBER 19, 1912.
Lust weolc the report cuinc
from Caruthorsvillo tlmt a pack
ac containing S!1,000, niaili'd by
a St. Louis banlc to the Hank of
Hayti, was missing, and upon in
vestigation, we found that the
package eoutainud only tfl.OOO,
tliat it was mailed from St.
Louis September !), and that
when the mail pouch supposed to
contain the package was opened
at the Hayti postotlice, the pack
age was missing. lAiiling to re
ceive the remittance, Cashier
AlcNail wired the St. Louis bank,
when another $1,000 was for
warded. Postoftico inspectors
have been making a vigilant
search and investigation of the
matter, but up to the present,
we understand, no clue has been
discovered. Lt is said that, the
mail messenger who handled
this package on the train is 70
years old and that he has been
in the service 20 years. One
theory is that the messenger
might have accidently dropped
the package in the wrong pouch.
and that the posroftice receiving
the package failed to forward it
to its proper destination.
It's Stopped, AH Right.
This week we meet a man
on the street the gentleman
avo tried to fence all the cotton
out of Hayti last fall who greet
ed us thus:

The gentleman was informed
that his paper was stopped
promptly when his subscription
expired, March 10, and no doubt
the paper that bothers him is the
one his family borrows from a

and J.T. Wathen of McGehee.

known in this city, and her many
friends join in wishing them a
long and happy married life.
the prettiest store in
town, but a dandy
place to trade.
Next time you feel like saying
"Everybody in town get their
name in the darned paper except
me," stop and think a moment
and see if you have done any-J
thing on which the editor could
base a paragraph about you.
Have you built a new house, en
tertained, or gone on any consid
erable trip? Have you started a
business enterprise, or any move
ment for the public goody Have
you been born, got married or
died, f you have done any of
these things, and the paper has
not mentioned it, be sure it was
because you hid it, despite the
papers vigilance. In a word, if
you wish to be "lamoiis," do
something! Of course, if you
are a "dead one,"' the paper
might now and then put in an
item to the effect that" 'Old
Grouch' is still growing around
the streets,' " but that wouldn't,
be news. Do something and
cackle, and you'll get your name
in the paper all right.

illness of his mother, who had
just arrived to visit her son,

more than her indurance.

JUDEN'S GOOD WORK.
Constable Ed Juden leftThurs
day afternoon for Marietta, Ok
lahoma, where he expected to ar
rest and bring back to this state
Win, Kurkendall, who was ar
rested last spring for carrying a
pistol. He made a bond for his
appearance at court, but left the
country before court met. His
bondsmen are having him
brought back at their own ex
pense, as the state does not pay
for apprehending a criminal.
Mr. .Juden deserves some cre
dit for locating this man, and if
the state was a little more liber-
tal, a great many more might be
apprehended, for instance, the
Reverend Mr. Duvall, and oth
ers, who have tlew their kite.
Mr. Juden returned Sunday
night with his prisoner and plac
ed him in jail at Caruthersville.
