Railroad One and , one-third fare. Financial Statement. We take some- interest in calling attention to the staterrent of the city's finances, compiled by Mayor ; Walker and published for the ben efit of the citizens of Union City. Our purpose in doingf this arises irom tbe fact that it is sometimes the case that citizens manifest an ignorance on the subject of our city government, so much so . that it assumes proportions which are quite inexcusable. This has been demonstrated on several occasions at public meetings. Many men do not know what our bonded indent edness is; they do not know the aggregate value of assessments, the tax rate, the revenue, or the yearly expenditures. They do not understand many of the business transactions connected with the city affairs. Of course we have a Board of Mayor and Aldermen whose duty it is to look after these things, but it is the duty of every citizen to become familiar with such things, not so only, but his duty to take a personal interest in public affairs. It is sometimes the case at public meetings that citi zens offer strange and inconsistent suggestions, not intentionally, but from an inexcusable lack of infor mation respecting the doings of the city. That is the principal reason that a conclusion cannot be arrived ..." I at promptly wnen a public meet ing is called for the purpose of getting the sentiment of citizens on public questions in which the tsoard must act. Read the state ment and Btudy local affairs gen erally, and get jour eyes open to grove adjoining the residence of Sterling Stone, near Woodland Mills. Dinner will be served in the grove, and after the regular ath letics and amusements the entire party will go to Hickman and enjoy a view of the rivr and our sister city under the bluff. The round trip rates are. for adults. 30 cents; for children, 15 cents. Buy an Acme Washing Machine and live easy. Nailling-Keiser Hardware Co., Successors to H. Dietzel. our interests.

Parka & Hughes retire from the business in this city and Drs. M. W. Moores and E. M. Long are their succes sors. Dr. Moores is a native of Fayetteville, and a graduate of Vanderbilt University, taking all the honors of his class and a gold medal for the best work. He has been engaged in practical work for several years and was also chief demonstrator of operative work in Vanderbilt for the past two terms. Dr. Long is well known in this city. He is a native of the countv. He began the profession of dent istry in the office of which he now becomes one of the proprietors with Drs. Turner, Parks & Hughes. He graduated from Vanderbilt with the highest honors, receiving a gold medal for the best work iu his class. He bas been located in Obion in the practice of dentistry, and has given j complete satisfaction as a dentist and gained his way to the confi dence and best graces of the citi zens. Professionally and morally the gentlemen are both worthy and we welcome them to our city. Dr. Hughes will engage as travel ing salesman for the Hughes Com mission Company, Memphis, of which bis brother, Dan Hughes, is the managing owner. Dr. Parks will also engage in business in Memphis with an uncle, who owns large stave yards and milling in terests. In the change two of the best professional men and citizens are leaving Union City. They are, however, entitled to our best assur ances, and no one, we are sure, hesitates to extend them in the most generous way. On the way to prosperity may they travel over the rapid transit. Nothing delivered on Sunday af ter 11 a. m. Dahnke. Actor and Playright. Herbert Dahnke, son of Conrad Dahnke, of Fulton, and nephew of George Dahnke, of this city, has ventured into the local field of stagecraft, and his work is known as -At the Call of Reveille." in which he appeared as author-actor at Reynolds Opera House in Union City last Tuesday night. He was assisted in the production by local talent, a number of which have de veloped into amateurs of respecta ble dimensions. The play is in five acts, all short, but there in a considerable amount of dramatic power and value in them. The Fulton papers spoke very kindly of Mr. Dahnke's play, and we are inclined to agree with them. The plot is simple. Two army officers are in love with a pretty girl. One is a scoundrel and the other the unfortunate rival. Of course the ending is good,' as most all stories are. But Mr. Dahnke bas shown tact in reaching his cli maxes with both artistic and dram atic effect. There are one or two excellent tableaux and the interpo lation of drills and songs by a com pany of young ladies, which servps to heighten the color of the play. Altogether Mr. Dahnke has made a success of his play. But he has shown more talent in supplying the book than he bas in establishing his right to the center of the stage. He plays well and sings too, bow- ever. Edward Moss shows to con siderable advantage before the foot lights.. He bas a very fair knowl edge of the secret of acting and disports himself like a person who had been there before. Mr. Moss' work in the plav was one of its sav ing qualities. ' Miss George played exceptionally 6trong and resource ful as leading lady on this occasion. The entire cast did well. The chorus of girls was cute enough. Following is the cast : Nellie Walters....
