TERMS OP SUBSCRIPTION: 81.00 A YEAR, OA8H IN ADVANCE ENTERED AT THE POSTOPKICE, HAYTI, MIBSOURI, AS SECOND CLASS MATTER Office in City Hall, HouthwoBt Room, Hayti, Pemiscot County, MlBsourl What would you give to have a pa per in Hayti? How many times, in the death of the old Hayti Signal in 181)7 and the "nine lives" of the-Argus from 1808 to 1007, lias Hayti felt the need of a paper? In all the bad experiences in the past w ith the newspapers there has been a cause there have arisen factions and feelings that never should have been. Probably both sides have been to blame in some instances. Wc sometimes see oujeroppinys of that same old spirit now. But the exper iences of the past should teach our people the wiser plan. Generally, we cannot hurt others without hurting ourselves, and it is very certain that we cannot hurt any business enterprise in the town without hurting the whole town. There is no such thing as "get ting even." Spite und envy cannot be satisfied. Kverj effort in that di rection sinks the maker of it just that much lower. We cannot all agree on everv thing. In business and in pub lic matters personal fueling should never be manifest. It is a fact, how ever, that there are people in eveiv town who would tear down the town and ever.v institution in it in a vain effort to gratify somo little personal whim and therebj do themselves and their neighbors untold injury. This is not the spirit of the Herald. The Herald ih here to work for the general good of the town, regardless of who is bene fitted. We have no "ax to grind," no friends to pet and no eneinie-. to pjn ish, but can deal out equal fairness and justice to all. The Herald is not, never lias been and never will be a TOOL. The Herald is its own boss, and whut it think- to bo right and for the best interest of Ila j ti it will do, and our large and growing subscrip tion list shows that the masses of the people are with us, and that the Her alc is too strongly established to go the way of its predecessor. We need and deserve, however, a better general patronage; we need more and better pay ing advertising, more job printing, etc., in fact, our patronage should be sullieient to enable us to hire a printer and put in a part of our time n the outside. Subscriptions alone will not paj for producing the paper, and on account of our limited income from other sources, to hold the paper up we have been compelled to work night and day to produce it, without any opportunity to get out to look after news or business matters. This explains why the paper neglects so many things, hut we can do no bet ter than our support enables us to do. It would pay every merchant in Hajti to make a jearlj contract for a liber al amount of space and goto work now to advertising and boosting the town, show the outside world wliat the town is, have hundreds of the papers sent to your friends and acquaintances, and try to encourage and assist the paper to lie better. Thefe is a turning point just ahead for Hajti, if we will take hold now and be ready for it when it comes. You will then need the Herald and it will bo hero, to be sure, but after a long period on half rations we mav lie somewhat like the old farm horse taken oil the cane in the spring to make a crop. dowed them, but wo must tolerate them and let them contlnuo in their narrow confines. This is not all for the Hustler, however. The Hayti Herald is in trouble for having had the courago to speak its sentiments on the Kcn nett local option election. Sever al subscribers have quit the pa per. Tho Herald is better oil w ith out them. Tell 'em to go to L; that you are running the Herald. Fortageville Critic. Now to set matters right, the Herald is not now and never lias becn in trouble or the least bit bothered on ac count of losing a subscriber for hav ing expressed an opinion or told the truth. That is a part of newspaper experience. So far as we are aware, however, up to present, since the pa per lias been running, and we have been tlneatened for expressing an opinion on many things, we have lost but ON 10 subscriber on that account. Thai was the one mentioned last week, who lives over at t'aruthersville, and it looks phiusahle that lie was over ex cited because lie realizes that if Ca ruthersville retains her saloons, which she certainly will, there is a strong probability that the county will go wet at the next election, und that would hurt his "bisnes'." See the point! The advertiser we lost was one of the "wettest" men in Hajti, so two ex tremes met. ffW dV " iftr nftt -TV rfti iflf iO lfV iffV lfh iflr tTc iflr Wftr Jh tTk ifli ifli ifh ith tfh tTh rff i i i i i i i A.
