We have too much self regard and respect for the public intelligence to indulge in any verbal acrobatics in our advertisements. We know and you know that the proposition to sell a pair of shoes or a suit of clothes or a yard of silk at half price is all "moonshine," and why any intelligent individual will try to dish up such nonsense for an intelligent public passes our understanding. Any truthful merchant will tell you that when an article is sold at "half price" or any price less than the original that it is simply because the article would not sell at the price he had hoped to receive for it. And we have a half developed idea that buyers know this as well as the merchant, so as a matter of business prudence aside from any degree of self respect we may possess, we have determined to be extremely cautious of our utterances both in our advertisements and our stores. We want you to read our advertisements and we know you will do so, just as soon as 3-011 become assured that they are truthful. It is a fact that we buy and sell more goods and employ more labor and capital in the conduct of our business than any other firm in West Tennessee outside of Memphis. It is also a fact that we directly and indirectly at Union City and Rutherford buy more farm produce than any other merchants in West Tennessee, and it is also true that we are the first large dealers to inaugurate a strictly One Price system of selling merchandise. We call your attention to these points in our business policy so that you will understand more clearly just the simple facts on which we lay claim to your patronage, we believe in reciprocity between individuals as well as nations. We believe that if we sell you your merchandise, we should buy your products, and we believe that if we buy your products you should buy our merchandise. r We want you to realize that a business organized on these principles is of much importance to the public and that we are able to give more to the public than we receive. You should feel just as keen an interest in our growth and pros perity as we feel in yours. We are fully aware of the fact that the very life of a community such as ours is dependent upon the prosperity of the farmers, and it is our policy to use every effort we can to advance the agricultural interests of this section, realizing as we do that when the farmer fails to make money we fail also. . Yours very truly, Hardy Bros. Hagmewood Co. Union City and Rutherford P. S.--We believe that we have the best selection of Dress Goods, Silks, Notions and Ladies Under wear ever shown in Union City. We will thank you to look them over and offer any criticism you may like. We like criticism, it enables us to learn just what the public tastes demand. LOCAL AND PERSONAL. Hon. ThoB."

Sold Hyomei for Years and Know It Will Cure Catarrh. The Red Cros9 Pharmacy has given Hyomei a most thorough and remark able test. For a long time they have offered to refund the money to anv purchaser of Hyomei, if It failed to benefit. The remedy has made so many cures among the Red Cross customers that they have urged its use in the most chronic cases of catarrh. Breathed for a few minutes four time9 a day, through the inhaler that comes with every outfit, It soothes the irritated mucous membrane of the nose, throat and lungs, tills the ca tarrhal germs, and restores complete health. Its healing, anticeptlc fra grance penetrates to the most remote air passages as no medicine taken into the stomach can possibly do. Immedi ate relief almost always follows the use of Hyomei, and great benefit Is seen after a few days' treatment. The complete nyoroei outfit costs only II and consists of an inhaler that can be carried in the pocket or purse, and will last a lifetime, a medicine dropper and a bottle of Hyomei. If this is not sufficient for a complete cure, additional bottles of Hyomei can be obtained for 50 cents.

Mr. Nagle, of the firm of Crad dock & Nagle, Humboldt, was here Saturday and was met by a commit tee of business men and farmers for the purpose of instituting a tomato cannery.

L Haguewood acted as secretary, and proceedings were entered into at once looking to the establishment of the cannery. Mr. Nagle stated his plans, say ing that he would require as much as 400 acres of tomatoes to guaran tee a factory building here, but if the farmers did not raise that amont this year, he would arrange to tak the crop and handle it at Humboldt. He stated that it would be a paying investment to any farm er living within fivemile8 from the cannery. Mr, Ben Aiken, who had expert ence in raising tomatoes, thought that $50 per acre could be realized without any trouble with a tomato crop. Another gentleman thought there would be no trouble in growing to matoes large enough for market. Mr. Chas. D. Gibbs said his ex perience proved that $60 per acre could be made with this crop on Obion' County land. Mr. Sam T. Wade said that be could make $50 per acre easily on tomato growing. Mr. A. L. Brevard raised three crops. The first did not do well, the second paid expenses, but the land was not good; the third paid $50 per acre on better ground, and the crop came at a good time. Mr. Lee Cary raised ten acres in one crop and made $600. The question then took a more practical shape and the farmers present were asked ho n many acres they would guarantee, resulting as follows: S. T. Wade 10 Mr. Dougherty 5 Mr. Tomerlin 4 H. O. Head 10 Sam Stone 3 Mr. Atkins 5 Bud Phebus 2 Ed McAlister 4 Cy Brevard 3 Lee Cary 4 Cage Hale 3 V. McCord 2 Morris Pursely 5 Give Lannom 2 TO AILINO WOMEN.
