Now, let us protit by past ex
periences, and let us look at mat

It is simply out of the question Stubblelield because his name
lor Hayti to put in and operate a was illegally printed on the pro
plant of her own -that cannot be gressive ticket. As to the con
done. This being so, then welditionof the prosecuting attor-
in ust look elsewhere. In this.
Ave seem to be unable to lind out
siders who will come here and
put in a plant, at a price the city
can afford to pay. Then what?
As we understand the matter,
Caruthersville is our "next
friend." Then is it not business
to s.ee what arrangements can be
made with the Caruthersville
people? Nothing would do our
city more good or advertise it
more than electric lights. aut it
should nut. matter where they
come Iroin. just ve g -t them
and our city is benefitted.
We should try to be .sensible in
our views and in our business un
dertakings, and lights for the
City; of Hayti is strictly a busi
ness proposition. Let our peo-
pie talk these matters over and
see if we cannot all get together.

R. G. SANDIDGE DEAD.
After a lingering illness, R. G.
Sandidge passed away at his
home in Granite, Oklahoma, Mon
day morning, November 22.
A telegraphic message to Virg.
P. Adams of this city announced
the death of Mr. Sandidge, and
in behalf of the Masonic lodge,
Mr. Adams immediately wired
the lodge in that city to take
charge of the last rites.
Mr. Sandidge was a Mason,
and also a Woodman of the
World. He carried the limit of
insurance in the latter.
He has many friends in Hayti,
in fact, all over Pemiscot and
Dunklin counties, who will be
grieved to learn of his death, and
who will symathize deeply with
his bereaved widow, Mrs. Frank
Sandidge, nee Foust.
Mrs. Sandidge has two broth
ers and one sister, Joe and Jas.
Foust of Concord and Mrs. Dixie
Don-is of this city.
Since removing to Oklahoma,
in 1907, Mr. Sandidge had ac
quired some nice .property, hav
ing built a nice little home in the
city of his adoption and also en
tered a piece of land. Up to a
few months ago he was employ
ed in one of the largest stores in
Granite as bookeeper and cash
ier, at a salary of 100 a month,
which position he had to give up
on account of declining health.

ter. He has a widowed mother,
sister and brother.

Caruthersville several days last
week, in cases growing out of
his duties as city marshal at
Caruthersville. And, by the
way, John is making many
friends here, and after a day
away seems really glad to get
back to Hayti,
