avail of our stereotyping outfit in i broad grin spread over "Chip's'"
casting some plates for his advortis-! face, like a slice of a sixty-pound

This is the greatest oflier ever made to the people of Southeast
Missouri by a Daily Newspaper.

ed as the greatest news collecting- and disseminating' agency in
'the world. Besides this service the SUN lias correspondents in
all parts of Southeast Missouri who send in the news when it
happens. In addition to the news, world wide and local, the
SUN carries a daily Market Report that is invaluable to Far
mers, Merchants and Tradeis.
Why This Offer?
This greatest of all subscription offers is made :
1st Because the SUN wants more circulation.
2nd Because it believes that the people of Southeast Missouri
want the best Daily newspaper published in this part of the state.
3rd Because the SUN believes that it is following a sound
business policy when it deducts from the regular subscription
price, the amount that experience has shown the most daily
papers paj to increase their circulation through contest mana
gers, premiums, circulation agencies, paid solicitors and offers
this saving direct to the subscriber.
45 Per Cent Off
Records compiled by many daily papers show that it
costs from 40 to 50 per cent of the subscription price
to put on contests and build circulation by the premium
route. The SUN believes that a better way is to offer
this amount direct to the subscriber and believes it so
strong that it is going to try it therefore from
March 4 to April 3
Inclusive, this unusual offer will be open to everybody. The
SUN treats all alike and doesn't offer a good thing to a non-subscriber
and at the same time deny it to a present subscriber, so
for a period of 30 days it is open to all alike.

According to tho cycle of the
moony moon the Chamber of Com
merce met at its regular, but borrow
ed haunts, last Monday night, and
among other important promulga
tions didnscullzcd as follows:
Discussion of the various features
of the Kcnnctt, Haytl and Caruthers
ville highway was programmed for
the next regular meeting In whh;h
all good roud boosters are Invited to
come and participate to the limit of
their lungs, vocabulary and brain, no
limit being placed upon the liberal
use of the latter. In the same con
nection will lie tllscusscu co-opera- i
tlon with the Capitol Highways Com
mission by the various members as
they sec lit to indulge their udvis
ings. Roads arc what have made
Hayti. As of Rome, all roads lead
here, the geographical center of the
richest county in the state. Roads
rail and dirt are what have kept
Hayti on the map. These are our
greatest friends. These have prov
en the bulwark or our destiny and
fate. Our "birthright" may go as
Esau's, but tho speck we occupy upon
the plat of the universe is a deed of
warranty given us by Him -who made
the mud from which this sphere was
molded and came rolling and bump
ing down the highway of time. This
little spot, with its black lines, show
ing the crossings of its highways. I

The Chamber of Commerce is as:
homeless as Payne when he wrote
"Home Sweet Home." While inhabit
ing, not hibernating, the hospitality
of a neighborly roof, it has felt keen
ly the hiatus of its position, and if
now in negotiation for its own doini
pile; for, how can it consistently
preach, teach and practice home
ownership while bumming its abode
under a borrowed roof? For this
purpose it has a committee out in
search for suitable quarters land
lorded by one who would hover ;
real live guest at preferential rate:
of rental. This report is due at tlu
next sitting of the conclave.
Protection for the firelighters i;
another matter under consideration
rather in action. A committee is
out and after the wherewith to pur
chase raincoats and caps for the
I chaps who have volunteered to stand
between us and earthly combustion,
i all we could expect, for in the here
latter, each and all in this respect
j will have to shift for Himself. There
will be no procuracy there. Samp

I The matter of rural mail route
' was also discussed.
(The subject of rural routes the
' writer hereot has some knowledge ot j
and if necessary can put the Cham

I the routes in due time can be had

ANOTHER STORE ROBBED
Last Friday night some thief throw
a brick through one of the back win
dows of the Huckley Store, smash
ing the glass, through which lie en
tered and proceeded to help himself
to his heart's content. What and
how much he got is not known. A
box of cigars and some pocket knive
were all that was missing, but with
such a large stock of all kinds ot
merchandise as carried by the Huck
ley store, much might be removed
and not be missed.
The Masons held one of the most
enjoyable a (fairs of the kind that
has been held in this section for many
months last Thursday afternoon and
evening in their hull. The cere
monies included the initiation ol
several candidates in the several de

visiting lodges in this section.
Practically every lodge in the
three adjoining counties were repre
sented by delegates and the work
was thoroughly enjoyed by all par
