THE MISSOURI HERALD, HAYTI, MISSOURI . ' 'W4
- STREETS TO BE tfAVED.
Last week nnd this week The
, Missouri Herald hnB carried a reso-
futlon notice proposing tho paving
of streets all around the Public,
Square, and a half block back from
each four corners, of tho square. '
It is proposed to bring, tho streets
to tho proper grade nnd to pave with
rock base and tarva and macadam
wearing surface, as will be found
more fully described In the notice.
The streets paved will also bo pro
vided with concrete curbs nnd gut
ters for proper surface drainage.
This will be' the first street paving
ever attempted in Huytl, and once
started it will undoubtedly prove so
satisfactory that it will be extended
to all other portions of the town in
a short time.
Anyone seeing our streets at the
present time would wonder why we
had not paved before. It seems now
an absolute necessity, and truly it
is. We have slept upon our own
rights and cJinforts by neglecting
the matter as long iis wo have.
The expense is insignificant com
pared to the benefit to be derived,
and in the long run will prove an
actual saving. If we had any way of
getting at the money that has been
spent on the streets of Hayti for
dragging, grading and "mudding"
covering the short period of the past
ten years, the amount would un
doubtedly he more than the cost of
making a permanent job of it. In
fact, all the money spent in tempo
rary street work, such as has been
done, is, for all practical purposes,
wasted. It matters not how smoothly
we drag tho streets, the work only
lasts from one rain until the next,
and frequently that is no more than
a day sometimes not so long. In
tho old way, wo never had good
streets. What time there is not
mud, there is heavy dust, and we are
over rid of chug holes and bumpers.
In paving her streets Hayti takes
a long step forward, and at the'
age of twenty-ilve, years steps out
of her swaddling clothes into the
ranks of her progressive neighbors,
soiho of whom were aged more than
firty years before venturing upon
Now watch us go forward until
in the lead. The locution of Hayti
on. tho map is too favorable not to
be "found" by "big business."
With what has been done ulready
we are well on tho way. A new, two
story brickvCity Hall that would do
credit to aV town of 10,000 inhabi
tants has just been finished. Wo
have as good schools as there are in
Southeast Missouri. We have excellent-
waterworks, a good Klre
OepnrMnent. and with paved streets,
wo will bo right in the front ranks
of the progressives.

"Cap" intimately some twenty-five
years, and, boy, .that is going back .a
long, long time in the past. During
all this acquaintance "Cap" has not
only traveled, but has led the way
upon the higher road of life. In all
things he has been observing, keen
