In every country town there is a sign
at the railroad crossing1 like this:
"Look for the cars." Now, everybody
knew that It was a railroad crossing
the day tho Una was laid and finished.
When the sign was put up it took two
days for every inhabitant to become
familiar with it. In a weokevery small
child could read it backwards. Did
tho railroad tako it downV No, if
they had tho warning would have been
forgotten in a week and smasbup and
damage suits would have resulted.
One time advertisements acts tho same
way. You must keep everlastingly at
it, likethe railroad crossing sign. Ex.

Of course it is a fact that it is no
money to the postmaster to put in
more boxei, and it does seem unfair,
that a postmaster, paid a salary,
should have to pay for the ollice fix
tures with his own money and turn the
ivnt money for these boxes over to the
government. This is evidently the
view our postmaster takes of the mat
.ter and the way he feels about it; but
on the other hand it, is the law, and
while these boxes would greatly les
sen his labor and be a great favor and
accommodation to the nations of the
ollice, they would also increase the in
come of the ollice and therefore belli
,lo increase his salary, and when his
term of ollice is out, his successor would
'pay him bis money back. It is our
opinion that we have a good post
master. So far, his service has been
excellent and the ollice is kept in good
condition. Everything is neat and
clean, he has good help in the ollice
and the mails seem to be luuidlcd care
fully and ellieiently. He has jnven us
better Sunday service, and we cannot
help but believe that as soon as he
fully realizes the requirements of our
growing and prosperous town he will
keep pace- with it. This box question
is not new with us. The files of this
paper will show that we were contend
ing for more boxes long before tho
ollice changed hands, and of course

Capt. H. F. Allen announces today
as a candidate for alderman in Ward
No. 1. No citizen of Hayti is better
known than Capt. Allen, and he has
held the highest ollice in the gift of the
people (Mayor) more than once. It
goes without saying that the Captain
would make a good alderman, and that
he would do his best for the advance
ment and the up-building of Hayti.
He is a hard worker for his town, an
old citizen, and knows the needs of the
At the last meeting of the board of
alderman the April election was order
ed and judges appointed; the marshal's,
treasurer's and city hall custodian's
reports were made and accepted, and
a resolution for a new ordinance to be
drawn turning the city hall rents into
the ireneral fund. A committee consist
ing of Henry Dortch, Moi-eau Gaskins
and L. L. heller was appointed to look
after the city hall improvements and
putting in a system of lights, and provi
sions were made to care for those in
quarentine, which is now unnecessary,
as the quurentino is raised.

From a Taxpaying Citizen
I want to know what is the matter
with the management of the City Hall?
The house is not two years old and it
is beginning to look very bad. It
certainly is getting some bad treatment,
nearly all the glass gone out of the
hall doors, some of the upper glass
broken, locks broken or keys lost, in
fact it is beginnig to have the appear
ance of a derelict as far as manage
ment is concerned.
It was the aim and intention of the
promoters of the building to have a
large, comodiou's-hall in which to hold
entertainments, public speakings and
good moral ami refined shows and
theatricals, or anything educational.
Under the present management it has
become a place of rough houses, free
for all's and a general nuisance and
disgust. Things have been permitted
that any fair minded man with good
intentions would never havethoughtof
permitting. The best of us might get
fooled once but only the Simons would
solicit a renewal of the vulgar and
illiterate sptctajle that was recently
The citizens ot Hayti are mostly
educated and morally refined people.
They enjoy anythingof an educational
or entertaining character; they have
always proved themselves to be good
patrons of such, and spend theirmoney
freely for shows and theatricals, but
they have nothing to donate to vulgar
kids who are so illiterate that they
don't know the meaning of morality,
and when such things are backed up by
men that sit in the background and
giggle, it makes them mad and some of
them are inclined to stay mad for quite
a while. They swear oil going to any
thing at all, then if a good troupe
For lea Package
Don't pay 5c for a package of seed that you
can get for lc. Hundreds of people used
these seed last year and know they are good.
If you had a craw like a chicken and a
gizzard full of sand rocks you might eat al
most anything, but the human stomach is a
delicate piece of machinery and demands
great care. Don't take liver and stomach
medicine and pills; it's not that you need.
Duy good, pure, wholesome, fresh groceries;
buy the best, and see how different you feel.
The marketis full of cheap, rotten, nasty
stuff, the slops and leavings from canning
and packing houses, which is put up under
bright labels and sold cheap. Beware of
such stuff; its dangerous. We don't handle it;
don't buy it; don't want it. We handle only
the best of everything that is to eat, at the
lowest price such goods can be sold. Come
should perchance drop into town with
a good play, they would have to come
well financial or go out broke, and
wonder why. And all because of ihe
reputation of the hall. Besides, those
who have taxes to pay want the house
taken care of. and have a right to de
mand it, and if the city council don't
immediately take steps to have the
building properly looked after, there
will be a committee of citizens endeavor
to take the matter in charge.

A Tax Paj ing Citizen.
