And again the acrobatic por
pensitie.s of Hill Lacey is muni
lesting ilM'lf and ho is pulling off
his periodical stunts it's his
change in the moon, and his signs
in tho zodiac are right. If we
had skinned the cat and turned
back-somersaults to the amuse
ment of a fun-loving public as of
tcn as has our friend Bill Lacey,
vve, too, might fail to look
pon the serious side of
assing events. But the boat

The "slogan" under the date

Recognized Straight Democratic
Newspaper in Pemiscot County."
if Myers of New York is guilty
f cutting the same kind of poli
'ical didoes and high-jink mon
cey shines as Bill Lacey, and of
neeting with tho same results,
.ve guarantee that if he laughs at
ill the grin will be on the back of
'lis head or his lower poster iori
y. To any straight democrat
.vhose conscience is not so strick
en by sulking in the ranks, kick
ng over the traces and knifing
nis party, the "slogan" may af
ford a pleasant smile of gratifi
cation, but there is no laugh in
t for men like Lacey, with the
results of the. .recent campaign
staring them in the face. We
:ire pleased that our "slogan"
has so early been called into no
tice, for while the matter is fresh
in the minds of the people they
will, perhaps, appreciate more
fully its merits. Most every
one knows that the Herald was
the only pap.r in Pemiscot coun
ty that supported the straight
democratic ticket, which,
we think, to say the least, very
justly earns for our paper the
slogan we have adopted. But
under the circumstances there
is no laugh in it for Mr. William
Lacey not even a grin.
Since our mention last week of
running the electric power from
Carutliersville to this city, we
have heard much discussion, pro
and con, but to save our life, if
tho deal is properly made and the
franchise properly drawn, we
cannot see the least undesireable
thing in the way, but a great
many things in its favor.
Electric power is generated at
the Niagara to light and furnish
power for ninny cities.
In California, the electric pow
er is generated far up in the
mountains, in the great canyons,
to light the cities in the valleys,
to operate electric car lines and
to furnish power.
The reason this is done is be
cause it can be done better ami
cheaper than any individual city
can do it. It is on the same sys
tem as a railroad, telegraph or
telephone system, which would
be a very poor service and very
expensive if conducted individ
ually. Again, it will not be many
years before all of this country
is in the hands of an immense
electric coinnaity'and every city
will be connected by electric
lines and trolly cars. In mak
ing this step, we are only taking
a step in that direction.
Surely the people of Carutli
ersville could not be induced to
run their lines over to Hayti if
they did not see and realize the
importance and the future of
Hayti, and our interest being
identical, they are willing to join
with us for two united towns,
which that little copper wire
would go a long ways to bring
Carutliersville and Hayti are
no longer at war, but as sister
cities each feels the need of the
other. Both cities are too large,
too important and have too much
at stake to tolerate for a moment
anything that would keep alive
dissension and strife; in fact, the
day is in the future when ('aruth
uthersville and Hayti will be one
city, the largest between St.
Louis and Memphis. We have
tho finest location on earth and
an ideal territory, when all our
swamp lands are reclaimed, to
build a great city, and railroads
will come to our doors from

shoes and see if you will ever wear any other
kind. Do not take our word for it, but buy
the shoes and test them. You will be con
vinced and will never buy any other kind.
Everybody eats, and nearly everybody uses
hardware. Then the next question is where
to buy these articles. You do not have to
take our word for anything. We believe that
if th people can only see and test an article,
they will know, and of course the price cuts
some figure. Our store has formed the hap
py medium of price and quality.
