Phono No. 85.
Several times we have men
tioned the freaks in the assessed

have shown pretty clearly that
the values were assessed too low.

sinners against Hayti's growth
has been .1. E. Franklin, who has

not for improvement: and his
price is usually prohibitive

as a result the lots remain vacant.

Mr. Franklin does this, here is a
list of live of his lots on the
west side of the square:

Paste this in your hat.
It is being rumored about
the city that a corporation
is to be formed here for the
purpose of taking over the
public square at Hayti and
holding it as an investment.
It is said, that if such is
done, the question of the
county seat will be settled

and then look up the assessed
valuation and you will be sur
prised. The same assessed rate will
apply pretty evenly on all the
lots around the square, and it is
remarkable that the same peo
ple who own them now have
been owning them for years,
holding them for a higher price,
and persistently screwing their
price up higher and higher as
prospects for the town
Considering this, it is a little
wonder that the town has not
grown and prospered more. No
town can grow so long as vacant
property is held for the increase
in price, and the only remedy is
to assess the proper value and
collect the taxes that will losen
While wo have taken .1. K.

are still others, and lots that are

be bought at that are assessed

ti paying the highest assessed
value, $1100, on a vacant lot on the
north side of the square.
These are facts and figures,
as any one can see from the
assessor's books, and it is to be

The "public square" referred
to by the Argus is a public
square in the city of Hayti and is
the property of the public who
bought and paid for it.
The lirst company to attempt
to deprive the people of Hayti of
this square were active citizens
of Caruthersville, and the scheme
to deprive us of this square was
hatched in Caruthersville.
Now, the Argus says a "COR
PORATION" of Caruthersville
citizens is to be formed to for-

which is an action to recover pos
session of real property.
It is the common law, as ad
ministered in the courts of lOng
gland for years, and the courts
of Missouri, to give the husband
the right of the possession of the
land belonging to his wife at
t me of her death, where she had
children by him capable of in
heritance. This is known as an
estate by courtesy.
So. as the matter stands, the
circuit court's failure to recog
nize the one-fourth interest of
Pete Williams, leaves thesupreme
court but one alternative, unless
it finds for the city, and that is
to r everse the case, remand it
back for trial, and again, per
haps, in the absence of the com
promise, go back to supreme
court, which means seven or
eight years longer yet to await
Now, the gentlemen over at
C iruthersville who have been
laughing up their sleeve and in
clined to poke fun at the citizens
of Hayti can have a diversion,
thinking how they are going to

between a dollar saved and a dollar spent is just two dol
lars. Did it ever occur to you that way?
It's worth thinking over.
Another difference is the feeling you have afterward.
The dollar saved gives you a feeling of real pleasure it
may call for a little sacrifice for the time being but after
ward you feel better for having denied yourself and the
dollar is still yours.
That is the nice thing about having money in the bank---you
have saved it it is still yours you rati have it when
you wish. We make it a part of your business to have a
bank account have an account at this bank, for it not only
helps our business but yours more so.
