Charter riled for Line Soulli
On the first page of The Commer
cial will be seen the announcement
that a charter has been filed for an
electric railroad running from Pa
ducah to Hickman, via Majrfield
'Fulton and Union City.
The charter provides for steam
or electric road, but the purpose is
to construct an electric road, run
ning1 ultimately from St. Louis to
the Gulf. .
A citizen of Paducah was in TJn-
. ion City this week conferring with
. our citizens upon the subject with
a view of promoting the enterprise.
It took very little time for our repre
sentative men to assure the sub
scription of $50,000 in stock, pay
able when the road is completed.
This is one of the many enter
prises of a similar kind which arc
now being promoted all over the
United States, several of which are
now in course of construction. One
of these lines runs from Chicago to
New York and the time estimated
for the operation of trains between
the two cities is 10 hours to make
the trip. The quickest time made
by steam roads is 18 hours.
We are informed that the power
station question has been very much
simplified. This has always been
the barrier to electric lines. Sta
tious were expensive on account of
the number required and extensive
outlay of same. Recent develop
mehts have made it possible to oper
ate trains with stations not less
than fifty mites apart and a'much
less expenditure in the construe
tion of these stations.
A new railroad would not be very
much advantage to Union City -un
less it traversed the western por
tion of the county. We have plenty
of road track on the eastern and
southern border. We need a road
from Union City towards Keelfoot
Lake in a southeasterly direction,
and even a road of that kind with
an excessive freight rate would not
help us as much as a good, sub
stantial and reliable public road
Fifty thousand dollars invested in
a hard road from here to the lake
which could be used for, hauling at
all times of the year would be
worth more than a railroad at any
rate of freight that would not pay
a farmer to ship.

have already been performed there
and each has been successful from
any standpoint. The building is
not large enough to accommodate
the number who have applied for
admission, and quite a number of
rooms will have to be built, when
it will be strictly up-to-date in every
way. The operating-room will be
floored and ceiled on the sides and
overhead with tiling, and the most
modern appliances known to surge
ry will be installed The infirmary,
while private property, will be
open to all physicians alike, and
any one desiring attention can go
there and call for any physician in
the city or county. Miss Emma
Bradford, one of the most skillful
nurses of Nashville, is installed as
head aurse, and she has already
demonstrated her fitness for the
responsible position she occupies.

This man bought a supply of tobacco with
out acquainting himself with the distinctive taste
of SCHNAPPS Tobacco, which has the cheering
qualities that gratify his desire to chew, and at
less expense than cheap tobacco.
SCHNAPPS has been advertised in this
paper so that every chewer has had an
opportunity to get acquainted with the
facts and know that drugs are not used
to produce the cheering quality found in
the famous Piedmont country flue-cured
tobaccos, and that SCHNAPPS is what he
ought to chew. Still there are chewers
who accept other and cheaper tobaccos
that do no give the same pleasure.
Some day they'll get a taste of the real
Schnapps they'll realize what enjoyment
they've missed by not getting SCHNAPPS
long ago then they'll feel like kicking
SCHNAPPS is sold everywhere in 5
cent cuts, and 10 and IS cent plugs,
sure you get the genuine.
