LET US ANNEX.
Cutting Hayti township in-two
and creating the new Concord
township is the most serious
blow that has been struck Hayti
in many a day, and one that is
I keenly regretted by the pro
! gressive and right-thinking peo
I pie. It is a pity that our people
j will not undo and adjust this
matter, but as those most inter
ested, best able and who will re
J ceive the greatest benetit have
j folded their arms and sat down,
j nothing will be done. Hayti is
1 now the smallest township in the
I county. We are shorn of our
I glory and our power. We have
lost our domain and our people,
and we can never again become a
formidable factor in the affairs
of Pemiscot county. We are not
censuring our friends who cut
loose from us: perhaps they
I thought they were right, but we
believe they would have fared
better with us and us with them.
1 As the matter stands, we believe
it would be best to annex Hayti
township to Little Prairie town
ship, as Little Prairie No. fi.
; This would make a strong and
1 well-organized township and one
, whose interests are identical.
There is a strong sentiment in
Hayti in favor of this move, and
we are sure it could be carried.

There will be a meeting of the
Pemiscot County Democratic
Central Committee at the court
house on Thursday, September
Vacancies on the ticket will be

committee will be tilled; plan of

time and place and manner of
opening the campaign iixed and
general report of the different
townships received; and any and
all other business necessary to
the promulgation and carrying
on of the campaign will be had.
All candidates for state, coun
ty and township offices are invit
ed and expected to be present.
Democrats from the various
townships especially invited to
meet with us in this meeting.

EARS IN BUSINESS
Of what shall we be proud if not our friends ?
To the ones who have helped us and traded with us
when we were new in business, we desire to sincerely ex
press our gratitude, and trust that we have given you your
money's worth, at least we intended to.
August I Oth ended our 1 3th year and we are glad to
say that customers'who traded with us in the beginning are
some of them with us yet and are some of the most sub
stantial people in the county. Also do we thank our cus
tomers who have traded with us during this time and who
are still trading with us, and will say that our goods and
methods must give satisfaction or your money refunded.
To those who are not our customers we extend an invita
tion to give us a trial and assure you that you will get the
best of tervice that our ability affords.
