THE ARGUS LEAKS.
At last, tho limit in. the Hayti
public; square and city hall ques
tion has been reached, and it re
mained for the Argus to let the
"cat out of the wallet." The ar
tide from the Argus is too ludi
crous to publish and we would
not reproduce the stuff only that
we want the people to see in
what position the. Argus has
placed its colleagues, B. B. San
ders, Ivy Williams, Addie Mc
Kay, Charlie Shepard. Sam Cor
bott, Vance Biggs and OTHERS.
Here is what tho Argus says:
It is being rumored about
the city that a corporation
is to be formed hero for the
purpose of talcing over the
public square at Hayti and
holding it as an investment.
It is said, that if such is
done, the question of the
county seat will be settled
permanently, though such
may not be the primary pur
pose of the promoters of the
Just how much truth
there may be in this rumor,
we are unable to say at pre
sent, though it readied us
from a reliable source. Pos
sibly more can be said later
upon this subject. Caruth
So the whole intent and pur
pose of these men, backed by
OTHERS, was not to "buy" Hay
ti's public square as a business
transaction, an investment or a
legitimate deal, but a blow at the
very heart of the City of Hayti,
to hamper, handicap and retard
her growth and future prosperi
ty, that is the secret the Argus
lets out a plea of guilty for its
colleagues, if you please.
And the Argus lets out anoth
The Argus lets out the secret
that the citizens of Hayti cannot
secure either an honest or an
honorable compromise with these
men, because they and OTHERS
will not permit a compromise.
The Argus lets it be known
that these men do not how and
have never wanted a compro
mise and that all their state
ments to the contrary were false
and intended to deceive the pub
lic. The Argus is responsible for
exposing this whole nefarious
scheme and laying it bare before
a disgusted public that has wit
nessed such things until it is
Well, we believe we have said
The people now, for the first
time, know the truth.
The Argus, true to its estab
lished traditions, let the inside
doings leak out, and we are very
yiiuuiui iu u.iu ai;u iui iius
Any overtures for r. compro
mise that might have been con
templated must now be abandon
ed, and tho City of Hayti must
proceed along dilferont lines.
There is always a remedy for i
every evil, and there is one fori
We will now dismiss all other
recourses for our rights and pro-
Wagons. War and politics are as
closely related as the Siamese
Twins and there is no good rea
son why similar rules should not
be expedient for both games.
While perhaps, fully merited, it
might be considered harsh to
swing political traitors in time of
peace, but it would be an absurdi
ty and travesty upon justice to re
ward them with the juicy plums
that come as the spoils of vic
tory victory that their traitor
ous votes were cast against. Of

After tin' campaign and battle

the enemy and wins the tight,'
between a dollar saved and a dollar spent is just two dol
lars. Did it ever occur to you that way?
It's worth thinking over.
Another difference is the feeling you have afterward.
The dollar saved gives you a feeling of real pleasure it
may call for a little sacrifice for the time being but after
ward you feel better for having denied yourself and the
dollar is still yours.

" I had been troubled, a little, for nearly 7 years," writes
Mrs. L. Fincher, in a letter from Peavy, Ala., "but I was
not taken down, until March, when I went to bed and had
to have a doctor. He did all he could for me, but I got no
better. 1 hurt all over, and I could not rest. At last, I tried
Cardtti, and soon I began to improve.- Now I am in very
good health, and able to do all my housework."
LARDU I Woman'sTonic
You may wonder why Cardui is so successful, after
other remedies have failed. The answer is that Cardui is
successful, because it is composed of scientific ingredients,
that act curatively on the womanly system. It is a medicine
for women, and for women only. It builds, strengthens, and
restores weak and ailing women, to health and happiness.
If you suffer like Mrs. Fincher did, take Cardui. It
will surely do for you, what it did for her. At all druggists.

How do you like this?
No doubt you neglected the
fact that private property can
be condemned for public pur
poses, and that while appeals
may be taken, the decree of the
courts is final.

question is not settled, but is
very much alive, and your nefar
ious attempts to fool and deceive

You have reckoned without
your host and have exposed your
own long and deep-laid plans to
"pull the wool over the eyes" of
the good, honest taxpayers of
Pemiscot county, to your own
greedy, selfish gain. All your
secret plans to mislead and mis
treat tho taxpaying citizens of
Pemiscot county are now expos
ed, and after many years of
careful concealment, they at last
know the truth.
As the matter stands now, we
are in favor of dismissing our ap
peal to the supreme court and
bringing condemnation proceed
ings at once. The matter needs
ending, and that immediately,
and condemnation is the surest
and quickest remedy. Under
the law, we can condemn, there
is no question about that, and in
this way, we will not be dealing
with individuals or grafters, but
with the courts. The only ques
tion is the price to be paid, and
Hayti has that, while the
courts will protect us from the
high-handed schemes that have
Again we thank the Argus for
letting out the long hidden and
carefully concealed secrets
of its clan, who, instead of giving
back to the people of Hayti that
which is theirs, are secretly con
niving with OTHERS to dig
their claws deeper into the heart
of our city and to evade their
own word and promise.
The Argus intimates that it
may say more later, but we will
wager that it will not. The Ar
gus' zeal was too much for its
wisdom, and it made a "slip."
But now that the Argus has
sprung a leak, it should go just
a little further and publish the
names of the Oaruthersvillo peo
ple who take stock in this new
"Company" against their sister
city, Hayti. While one of the
old company owes us for a year's
back subscription which lie neg
lected to pay, if the Argus will
publish their names we will make

slaughter pen. It is unfortu
nate that Pemiscot county is
cursed with a lot of old bell
weather political-has-beens, and
fanatical dry kilns, who former
ly posed as democrats, but now
pad around saying: "In county!
and local affairs I vote for the
man and not the party." They
try to exculpate this guerrilla
warfare by saying, "I vote the
national ticket." That is no ex
cuse, whatever. It is ridiculous.
The national ticket didn't need
the little unit of the local ballot.
The national ticket won with mil
lions to spare. Millions of re
publicans, even, voted the dem
ocratic ticket, because their own
party got so rotten they could
no longer stay with it. It is
here at home, in local and coun
ty affairs, where all good demo
crats should and will stand- to
gether. Where a man votes and
where his influence is, is the
only place he can benefit or harm
his party. Take our last elec
tion. Not one of those who
"voted for the man and not the
party," can show, in a single in
stance, where the democratic
candidate was not equal we
claim superior to the republi
can in every particular and quali
fication. But time is wasted in
arguing this matter. To any
sensible, fair-minded person
there is bub one side of it. There
is just this in the rightful consid
erations of political patronage.
There are plenty of good demo
crats, who voted the straight
ticket, to fill all the jobs the
party -power has at its disposal.
Let the goody-goody grouches
who voted for the republicans
"The man and not the party"
go to "the man and not the dem
cratic party" for their soup. If
we have to have republican post
masters, at all, let us have regu
lar republicans, not mugwumps.
For service the present postmas
ter at Caruthersville, according
to our information, would be
hard to improve upon, yet some
good democrat is due his place
but not u mugwump. Of all the
things we hate, it is a two-sided,
two-faced, fawning, hypocritical
thing wearing pants, called by
some a "voter."

gains in his balances, our confidence in him grows.
When a depositor who has won our confidence requires
money with which to develop his business our large resources
enable us to give him all the credit his financial condition
