things in the order we have a

Our school boa I'd is to be com
mended for the interest they
have taken in school affairs. We
are glad they have made an effort
to raise the standard of the
.school by putting in the needed
'(uipmpnt for the proper teach
ing of the various school sub
jects. There seems to be some mis
understanding in regard to the
school law passed by this ses
sion of our legislature, permit
ting children live years of age to
attend school. The new law does
not go into effect during the pres
ent term of school.
We received fifty-live volumes
of good books for the school
library last Tuesday. We have a
hundred dollar order of books on
the road. This makes about one
hundred and seventy-five dollars
avo have spent for library books
and apparatus this term.
Several pupils from nearby
country schools have enrolled
with us recently. We are glad

Two small robberies occurred
in town last week, one at Adams'
meat market Tuesday night and
one at Leller's Drug Store- Wed
nesday night. Mr. Adams miss
ed a quantity of meat, and at
Leller's the urincinle articles
j missed was the cash change
from the. registers and about
SO worth of cigars. Mr. Leller
phoned to Cooter for the Duncan
bloodhounds, and Mr. Duncan,
accompanied by his brother, ar
rived with the dogs at noon.
After trailing with the
dogs for some time they were
released and went to a certain
young man. They were taken
away for some time and then
again placed on the trail,
again going to the same young
man. In the absence of further
evidence or information, we re
frain from publishing the name
of the young man in question.

J. P. Llovd of Cooter was in
Hayti Thursday afternoon, for
the purpose of bringing the mer
chants of the county together in
an organization the purpose of
which is to protect themselves
against bad debts and to guard
against selling to people who are
pour pay. It is not the object of
the organization to work a hard
ship upon any deserving person,
but to benefit the deserving. As
it is at present, a merchant has
no means of knowing whether
the man who asks credit is good
or bad, with the result that to
learn, he must sell him on credit
and take chances of getting pay.
With the organization the mer
chant would know at a glance
whether a man from any part of
the county was good or bad.
The organization is a good thing,
and we would like to see our
merchants take hold of it. Mr.
Lloyd is an expert accountant
and can place the organization on
a practical basis from the begin
ning, while the expense of keep
ing the organization up could not
be great, divided among so many
merchants. Tithe merchants of
Pemiscot county ever try such
a method long enough to learn its
benefits, they would not do with

What the world wants and

men of action and deeds, who
have accomplished something in
the world for themselves.

If a man has never accomplish

it reasonable to suppose that he
could do so for others?
For many years Caruthersviile
has been governed by successful
men, as her growth and prosperi
ty will attesi,, but of late years
a fight has been made against
them by the fanatics. The fa
natics over there have become
bold and desperate of late years,
and the good, level-headed busi-
ness government has had to bat
tle harder and harder every year
to hold its own.
For the past two years Havti
has boon in the hands of a strict-
y business administration, and
the growth and prosperity of the
city has been the greatest in its
history. Our city has made rap
id strides to the front, and if let
alone another two years will see
still more wonderful strides, and
in a few years wo will have a city
second to none in the county.
Hut the destroyers and town
killers are at work to force them
selves upon the people, and upon
the choice of the people at the
polls Tuesday, April 1, depends
our hope for tlia future.
One mistaken st?p can retard
the growth and prosperity of a
city for many years.
