THE HAYTI HERALD INSTALLS MODEL FOURTEEN LINOTYPE
Row Has Best Equipped Job and
- Newspaper Plant in Southeast
Missouri Exclusive of Cape Gir
ardeau Southeast Missourian.
BEST LINOTYPE BUILT
New Era Awaiting People of Hayti
and Pemiscot County.
After waiting for almost
seven weeks to tell our readers
and others of our recent pur
chase so as to be better able
to serve them, we have now
installed a new Model 14,
Mergenthaler Linotype, it
being the best slug-casting
And now we most cordial
ly invite the public to call
sb around and take a close look
ti& over the big machine. We
p have christened her Miss
Ip Mergenthaler. .She is a girl
f4 after our own heart, and one
whom the editor"; can make
love to and his wife not get
angry or jealous; neither will
she talk back, although she
& has mnn hrasa than a tramn
ik printer and muscles of steel,
fite and wears a cast-iron over
f skirt. It is her duty to set all
m the type for the Herald, in
cluding the reading matter,
rules, borders, heads and most
of the advertisements. She
did her first real work on this
issue, but the present dress
of new type faces are only
temporary, that is until, an ac
uaintance of the Miss arrives
Our new compositor is said
to be a fiend for work and can
set as much type in a day as
the average man sets in a
!week',Jbut of course that de
peuds'largely on how we get
along with her, and as our ac
She wears six belts about
her anatomy and has several
set sof teeth, has four maga
zines and numerous reeds,
and chatters merrily as she
works. - She has five pockets,
in four of which she carries
pie and in the other hot metal.
She "arrived from Brooklyn,
New York the first of last
week, but would have nothing
to do with our office force un
til a gentleman friend of hers
came from Blvtheville. Ark..
to introduce hereto the force.
Miss Mergenthaler has al
ready won a number of ad
mirers since she began work
for us arid we are not in the
least jealous of her.
To show how well she is
.qualified for this class of work
we give below a few speci
mens of her new dresses:

quito enthusiastic over goodroads.
They have on this special road cut
all the rightofway out and remov

also have all tho material on the
ground to contract their part of the

Judge Brasher for Re-Election
In our announcement columns
this week will be noticed the namo
of Judge J. M. Brasher, asking for
n re-nomlnatlon for the offlceof Pro
bate Judge of Pemiscot county.
Judge Brasher has the remainder
of his second term to serve, and had
originally planned to stay out of
tho rnco tho coming primary and
general election, owing to his ad
vanced age, but on account of the
solicitation of his many friends, urg
ing lilm to remain at his post, be
has decided to again ask the people
of the county to ugain olecthlm to
this important office. .
t During his terms in this very Im
portant office he has filled it with
success andwith tho approval of the
people of the entire county, that is
so far, we have never heard criti
cism ngalnt either he or his office
Judge Brasher Is of the old, dy-ed-In-the-woo
1 Democrats, having
at all times stood with the party
when things looked mighty gloomy.
He is a gentleman whose integrity
and honesty is unqustioned, and
whose services has been tried and
not found wanting, and one who
can be depended upon.
Really we know of no one who
could fill his place well, why
should we try.

Pemiscot county has employed a
farm advisor. A meeting of the
Pemiscot county farm bureau was
held recently, nd James Ellison of
Kirksville, Mo., -was chosen for the
position, and he is expected to ar
rive in a few days. Pemiscot county
has had a farm bureau for three or
four months and has been trying to
secure a suitable man for the
place, but until now has been un
able to do so. Pemiscot, like Dunklin
and other Southeast counties, is
coming to the front, and It is going
to be only a few years until antl
