THE HAYTI HERALD
HAYTI, MISSOURI, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1918
1 HH1 , ;, -iM;
New York, Nov. 7. False reports that Germany had accepted the
terms of thearmistice and that fighting had threw the country into a
delirium today has turned out to be the greatest hoax of recent years.
A dispatch cabled from France to the United Press and picked up and
circulated through the country by another news agency declared the ar
mistice signed at 11 o'clock this morning and fighting ended at 2 o'clock
After cabling to France and receiving an official reply, Secretary Ian
sing from the State Department in Washington issued this statement:
"The report that the armistice with Gennany had been signed is not
true. When it reached the department of state this morning an in
quiry was at once dispatched to Paiis. At 2:04 o'clock this afternoon
a telegiam, in reply to that of the department, was received from Paris.
It stated that the armistice had not yet been signed and that the Ger
man representatives would not meet JIaishal Foch until 5 p. m., Paris
t'me, or 12 noon, Washington time.''
The above answer is given to the report over the country that Ger
many had surrendered ; and while others over the country were celebrat
ing the happy event, the American and Allied troops were still giving the
German government some rather hard hitting.
A PRACTICAL DISCOVERY
TO DRILL FOR OIL AND GAS
Shortly afternoon Hayti caught the spirit of demonstration
which spontaneously swept America from coast to coast, as
well as all the Allied nations, as if all means of noise had been
set off by an electric spark ; first, the gin whistles blew, then
the Frisco engines joined in with long and vibrant blasts, church
bells rang; to this was added the roar of all sorts of guns; flags
begin to appear; automibiles begin to fill with boys, girls, men
and women, and soon the whole town was an uproar of noise,
which, as the hours passed, grew into a pandemonium of joy
excited humanity, celebrating the death-kneel of Hohenzol
lernism. Everybody was shouting "Germany has Surrender

We are informed that the Frisco
Oil & Cas Company has shipped in
a drilling rig and will commence to
develop a tract of leases which they
hold -north of Campbell for the pur
pose of discovering oil or gas. It is
- id th.it the tlrit drill hole will be
In. ,ited about four miles north of the
city limits and it is believed that
either oil of gas in paying quanti
tb's will be found at a depth of ap
proximately tour hundred feet There
is no way ol estimating the ulue
which such discovery would mean
to Dunklin county and it is to be
hoped that the Company will not stop
until they have made a thorough
and complete te-t of all their acre

ELECTION RETURNS LOOK MUCH
LIKE REPUBLICAN LANDSLIDE
SPENCER ELECTED FROM MISSOURI DRY AMEND-
MENT HEAVILY DEFEATED RUSSEL IS
CARD OF THANKS
We'deslre to thank our friends tor
the most untiring efforts extended
us during the illness and death of
our dear wife and mother, who died
last Thursday afternoo.
G. W. DORR1S AND FAMILY
CARD OF THANKS
On the face of the returns, but not authentic, Spencer, republican, is
elected to the Senate from Missouri ; while Russel, democrat, is stated to
have a normal lead for Congress over Hays. ..It seems from the latest re
ports that Superintendent of Public Schools Lamkm is defeated by the
Republican candidate, while also, there is some dispute between Graves and
Neville for the Supreme bench, and it may take the official count to de
termine to whom it will go.
The Dry amendment seems to have met its Waterloo in St. Louis, los
ing over the state by probably 50,000.
Up to the time of going to press we have not been able to get the correct
returns for the county election, and will give them to the public next
week. ..From all reports it appears that the Democratic ticket for the
county is elected, with the exceptions of a few justices of the peace in
some of the townships.
I desire to thank my friends for
the kindness shown me in the death
of my brother, Ed Wheeler, who died
while in the service of his country,
while stationed at San Antonio, Tex.

Jesse F. Gmin, who is stationed at
Camp Dodge, Iowa, came home Mon

Here's hoping that he as one of our
home boys will soon show the good
stun' that is in him. and bring honor
to himself and his home town.
