Pains All Over!
"You are welcome," says Mrs. Nora Guffey, of Broken
Arrow, Okla., "to use my letter in any way you want to,
if it will induce some suffering woman to try Cardui. 1 had
pains all over, and suffered with an abscess. Three phy
sicians failed to relieve me. Since taking Cardui, I am in
better health than ever before, and that means much to me,
because 1 suffered many years with womanly troubles, of
different kinds. What other treatments I tried, helped tne
for a few days only."

NELSON CONTEMPT CASE.
Judge Latshaw's remark that
he would never permit William
R. Nelson, editor of the Kansas
City Star, to go to jail, was cre
ditable to his sense of justice,
but he based his determination
on the wrong ground. Ho said "it
would be a reproach to the com
monwealth for a man who has
done as much for Kansas City as
Mr. Nelson has done, to be cart

We go beyond this. We hold
that the sentencing of Mr. Nel

son criticised the action of the
court in his newspaper was an
outrageous exercise of arbitrary

Judge Guthrie we do not be
lieve he was right in attempting
to exercise his power as a judge
to punish a citizen for criticising
his action on the bench. The
power to punish for contempt
should never be exercised for
acts beyond the IMMEDIATE
PRESENCE OF THE COURT,
unless upon officers of the court
or upon persons guilty of disobe
dience to the court's orders. It
should certainly never extend to
the punishment of newspaper
editors for criticising judicial
actions and proceeding. The
press should be as free to criti
cise judges as to criticise other
public officers and it should be
subject to the same responsibi
ty under the law for its utter
ances. The conviction of Mr. Nelson
expressed nothing except the
offended mind of the Judge.
There was no trial before an im
partial tribunal. There was no
hearing of the facts and no con
sideration of the case as presen

ney. The court was judge, jury

ceedings to muzzle free speech
for the protection oi courts from
It is well that this issue of
stretching contempt proceedings
to embrace critics of courts has
been made with reference tu a
man who is in position U combat
it to llio best advantage. Mr.
Nelson .should take the issue to
the court o'' last, resort and if he
is defeated there, to the people
for Until decision, through legis
lation, as to lite power a judge
may exercise to nunish those
who offend him. Ljt us have ti
settlement this oi issue. Post
It is pretty generally conceded
that there can bo no "contempt of
court" outside of court, except
disobedience to the mandates of
the court and the law, and that a
judge must accept the same rem
edy to appease his "injured dig
nity" as the law prescribes for a
private citizen. Were it not so,
we could not have free speech
and a free press, or a free peo
ple. DON'T "STING" THE EDITOR.
As little as some people think
about it, it is not a good idea to
"sting" the editor because he
has a stinger.
The editor is an humble, do
cile kind of an animal, but he is
possessed of both memory and
feeling, and sooner or later it
will come his turn.
As a matter of fact, the editor
prefers pleasantness and good
will, and uses his best efforts for
the benefit of all humanity, but
as "the worm will turn," so will
Jt may be a long while or a
short while, no one can tell,
but sooner or later, it will come
the editor's turn, and he has so
much the advantage that when
it does come his turn, he will
make you look like six-bits.
The editor has many advan
tages, and it will pay you, be

The paper will go on for years.
A good paper, in a good town,
never dies. It lives on, forever,
and sooner or later, when you
turn your toes to the daisies, it
will publish your obtiuary and
send you on your journey to
eternity. The newspaper is
first at the cradle and last at the
grave, it is first to do good
deeds and last to do bad ones.
The newspaper will do good
wherever permitted, and bad
only when forced so to do.

People who are thinking of
buying property in Hayti had
better get busy. We do not
mean business property, because
that is high enougli now, and the
business streets can leave the
square, which they will do, but
we mean residence property.
Residence property is still reas
onable, and in a little while it is
sure t advance. Resides, you
can make belter selections of
location now, ss those who hit
buying pick the best.
Vol I. Xii. 1, of the Hnlliiw!
Advertiser, by K. M. McClaita
ban and .1. W. Smith, reached
this office last week. Both men
are old in newspaper experience,
in fact, they are two of the oldest
printers in Southeast Missouri
who are actively engaged in their
calling, and for this reason they
ought to get out a paper justras
good as its patronage will sup
port. Now, the people of Hol
land have undertaken an obliga
tion in this enterprise that they
should not neglect. A dead pa
per is the worst thing any town
can have, and it does not take
many newspaper deaths to make
it impossible for the town to ever
haven paper. Therefore the peo
ple of Holland should get behind
this enterprise, stay with it and
make it a success.

Another difference is the feeling you have afterward.
