THE MISSOURI HERALD, IIAYTI, MISSOURI
The river is n curing flood stage
and ir more rains fall will go con
siderably higher, unless this rise
gets out of the way before another
comes. However, at this time of
year, it is doubtful ir this rise will
pass before more water routes down.
There is a heavy Hood emptying
into the Ohio, both from the Ten
nessee and Cumberland rivers. The
weather report shows tltat the Ohio
is at a stage of more than 15 f feet
at Cincinnati, and still rising.
Evansville reported a stage of 111
feet with a big water coining out
of Green river. The rise at Cairo
has passed the 40 feet stage, the
tlood stage there being -1 5 feet.
There is a slight ribe in the Mis
souri at Kansas City, but the Mis
sissippi at St Louis is about sta
tionary Flood stage for Pemiscot county
no longer causes alarm, for the
levee has already proven its de
pendability and value.

At ;! o'clock last Sunday at the

O. L. Wood, State Missionary, made
a very interesting address to a few
members of the church and others,
who happened to be so fortunate as
to learn of the special service ami
Rev. Woods was accompanied over
from Caruthersville by Rev. Fos

there, and also by Lawyer Medliu

There should be more visiting on
the part of the members of the two

the attendance can be increased and
the services made more interesting;

Hayti's new water system is now a reality, everything in ship-shape, working fine,
and plenty of good water. This is a Hayti institution, owned by the people of Hayti,
to be paid for by the people of Hayti, and can be supported by none but Hayti people.
Therefore, the sooner Hayti people take hold, have water placed in your homes, and
in every way you can produce customers for water, just that much sooner it wilj
be placed on a paying basis, and we as well as our Mayor and Board of Aldermen,
will know just where we are, and how to operate the plant to the best advantage.
I am very anxious in two ways:
1st All my interests are in Hayti and I am naturally proud of our water works and
want to see it made a success and serving every man, woman and child in Hayti.
2nd I have a full supply of plumbing goods, have plumber's license, and a good
man to do any kind of plumbing work, and am in a position to operate the business
as cheap as any one could possibly do it.
I am handling nothing but first class, quality goods, and will permit nothing but
first quality work. I want YOU to start using water and if it's nothing but a
kitchen sink and one opening, I want to have this put in for you and get you
I have some rate cards showing the cost per year for every kind of business; come in
and get one and let me talk over your water problem with you.
