HAYTI, MISSOURI, FRIDAY, JUNE 2, 1922.
ARKANSAS GROCER CO. BANQUETS
HAYTI BUSINESS PEOPLE
M- - r.-
Luncheon and Smoker Given by Arkansas Grocer Co., and Ser
ved by Ladies Civic League a Big Affair in Hayti.
The get-together luncheon ami
smoker given by the Arkansas XJro-'
cer Company, under tho auspices of
the Hayti Chamber of Commerce and
Business Men's Club, and served by
the ladles of the ivlc League, was
a success in every detail and from
every standpoint. In the social and
business affairs of Hayti the occasion
marks up a new record. In the
minds of those present it will long
live as a pleasant memory.
The correctness of the above state
ment we leave to a competent judge
to corroborate. We feel that Mr.
Will Pyles, president of the company
knows what such a function should
be If any man does. In a letter to
the ladies of the Civic League, which
we publish in this connection, he
comments as follows:
" I am going to cay truthfully
niul frankly, 1 have attended banquets
from New York to tlie Oulf of Mexico,
In the largest cities In tho United
States, and havo also attended ban
quets In smaller towns, but 1 have
never seen a better cooked and better
served food than we had there. I have
never seen a banquet where every
thing: went off so pleasantly and so
systematically as your banquet did
never seen a banquet where every
thing went off so plcusantly and so
systematically as your banquet did
Inst evening. It was a great pleuRuri
for mo to bo there and I hope It will
not be long until we can have another,
because I like Huytl and I like the
people of Hayti. I feel just as much
Interested In you good people as I" do
the people of Blythevllle, and as I
said In my little talk, we are two
thirds Missourlans. We have two
houses in Pemiscot county and one In
Mississippi county, Arkansas; there
fore, we have a perfect right to be
more Interested in Pemiscot county
than in Mississippi county because our
Investment Is larger there than here.
I was glad to patronize your good
organization and to hIiow my appre
ciation I am enclosing our check
drawn on your bank there for $C0.Qo
Accept this check in two ways first,
you earned it, and next, because wn
like you and appreciate what you did
and we want to do everything we can

Before the grass begins to grow

words to say of them. Their sterling
qualities "will bo extolled and their
faults will bo overlooked and forgo't
This Is the way of the world.
But It might be different. We
might commend their good qualities
while they are still here, to reap the
benefits of the commendation. A
kind word means much to those who
are striving to do right. It encour
ages them to remain steadfast in
their laudable undertakings, to per
severe in the path of honor, and to
extend a helping hand to others who
need aid and enlightenment.
Say it to them in life.

Pyles said was nls remarks relative
to his feeling for Hayti. He said:
"We want the people of Hayti to
know we are here to stay,- and we
want them to feel that we are just as
much Interested In the development of
Hayti and the territory around Hayti
as we are interested In the develop

we do these things we shall prosper
Following is a copy of tho letter
Mr. Pyles wrote to Mrs. J. T. Buck

Dear Ladles and Mrs. Buckley:

in the largest cities In the United
States, and have also attended ban
quets In smaller town; but I havo
. aerved food than we had there.
Springs of Waukesha, Wisconsin, and
It Is an elegant Item In the way of a
beverage. Tlie cigars served wore the
l.a Cubanera and our well-known
brand, The Arkunsaw Drummer.
Now, In regard to the Gold Leaf
flour some people use the High Pat
ent flour and others use the Self-rising.
Any of you ladies who use the
Self-rising flour, If you will call for

the samo results that you get from tho
Gold Leaf High Patent flour.
We hope you ladles enjoyed serving

good food and you can always got It.

Tuesday, May 30, was Memorial
Day. There was little observance
of It here except for the closing of
tho postofllce and bank and, for n
few hours, all business houses. This
Is generally the case In the smaller
towns, but throughout the nation
this day Is considered the most inl
portnnt of the national holidays. It
Is so because since the time when the
Nation dedicated Memorial or Deco
ration Day us a day of remembrance
of our heroic dead, we have drawn
closer the "bonds of unity and fra
ternity. North, South, East and
West, In. peace, In war, In loving
memory of those who have DIED
that the Nation might LIVE.
LEST WE FORGET.
In Flanders llelds the popples blew
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and In the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, lly.
Scaice he.it d amidst tlie gun's below,
We are the dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow.
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flaiidois fields
Take up our quarrel with the foe!
To you from falling hands we throw
The torch. I3o yours to hold it high!
If yo break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep though popples grow
In Flamleis fields. '

REPUBLICANS PUT OUT
FULL COUNTY TICKET
The Republican committeemen
and others met In Caruthersville
Tuesday and selected candidates for
the various county offices to be
voted upon In the August primary.
In but one or two exceptions will
there be a contest.
For the office of collector T. R.
Cole and Bob Sharp will contend for
the nomination, and for Associate
Judge of District No. 1 Hayti, Abe
Gaither and John Pool both have
their hats in the ring, though we
are informed that it is likely that
quainted with Judge Gossom, for
fore the primary.
For the other offices there were
selected Charles Howard for Circuit
Court Clerk; W. M. Collins for Pro
bate Judge; S. J. Jeffress for Prose
cuting Attorney; H. J. Relnhard for
Representative; E. E. Watson for
Presiding Judge, of the County Court
and E. W. Shade for Associate Judge
of District No. 2.
H. J. Relnhard and Miss Hattie
Gaither were chosen candidates for
committeeman of Hayti township,
but this paper could not learn who
were chosen for the other townships.
Houston Buckley, who recently
became owner of the Iceberg, the
James T. Jackson ice cream parlor
and confectionery, is, this week,
having the place repainted and dec
orated and otherwise improved. This
has always been a popular meeting
place for the young people of the
town, and tho nice, neat service tho
new proprietor is giving should
make the place still more poular.
Houston is taking considerable pride
in the business and deserves the
success ho is having.
THREE OVERLANDS SOLD.
Ward Dorrls of tho D. & D. Ga
rage, in the last three months has
sold three Overland cars, for which
they have the agency, the purchas
ers being Arthur Alltn, Dr. Cress
well and John Wllks. Tho Overland
Is n fine little car, good In looks nnd
good in quality; best of all, It is
sold at a moderate price. Mr. Dorrls
is very enthusiastic over his agency
and will give ns much time as he
can to the business.
Now It a good tlmo to get that
new piece of furniture. You may
price furniture anywhere you please,
hut you cuunot equal the value any
where, that I can give you for the
money. A. J. Dorrls. 30-81;

!? COURT HOUSE BONDS?!
Whereas, the City of Hayti is in
fested with rats; and whereas these
pests not only destroy much property
but are a constant menace to health,
as they are great distributors of dis
ease, the week commencing June
the fifth is hereby designated and
set apart as the time when the
Health Department of the city, and
all other city officials and employes
will make a determined effort to rid
the city of this nuisance.
I, J. H. Wilks, Mayor, therefore,
hereby request that all citizens and
Civic Bodies co-operate with the city
in this effort, and further request all
property owners and occupants of
property to so change the construc
tion of buildings as to make them
rat-proof, and to destroy all places
which afford a harbor for these ro
dents. J. H. WILKS, Mayor.
REED TO SPEAK.
Jim Reed is billed to speak in Ca
ruthersville Wednesday, June 7.
This will be a good chance for those
who want to hear a man speak who
did more and is doing more than
other man In the United State to de
feat the Democratic party, to satisfy
that want. There can certainly be
no other reason for wanting to lis
ten to this blatherskite, for that is
all Jim Reed Is. He is simply a wind
jammer, and when that is said all
At most every place he speaks he
is having large crowds. They are
mostly Republicans. When he
proudly (?)" refers to what he and
Hiram Johnson, Lodge et als. did,
he receives great cheers. The Re
publicans are bound to hollow. It
be so at Caruthersville. The Repub
licans will be there. They will hur
rah. On our foreign relations Reed has
not only opposed the Democratic
party in the past, but he opposes It
NOW. He opposes the Republican
party. He is against both parties;
and we believe he Is against the ma
jority of the people and the highest
interest of America and all man
kind everywhere. Conceding all he
claims' for his courage and inde
pendence, the question is, whether
in ruthless exercise of these quali
ties, he is right or wrong.
We think he is WRONG. Wt
thlnk he is a menace to peace and
Some say Reed is a smart man.
Maybe he is. There have been other
smart men. Benedict Arnold was a
smart man. We don't care a straw
about Reed's smartness. In his own
estimation he is a little too smart.
That is what is hurting him He is
smarter than the Democratic party,
he thinks. In Reed's estimation the
Democratic party is wrong and he is

to sell the court house bonds, tho
proceeds of the fraudulent election,
last Friday, but a stroke of lightning
or something blew out the fuse and
the scheme, for tho present, fell
through. Much scheming and trig

St. Louis had been made.
A bond buyer was present. Somo,
say several bond buyers were hang
ing around on the outskirts of the
situation. The County Court met.
The gentlemen eyed each other
across the table. Sighs. Then ice

It was too much.

Where ara the bonds? A few

for them. Did they find them?
