Give Imitation Heat ' Avoid the cheaply constructed, putty jointed stove as you would counterfeit money, because it is just as worthless and in many cases even more so. For not only does it radiate heat badly, but it wastes its original cost many times in fuel. The majority of manufacturers, attracted by the phenomenal success of Cole's Original Hot Blast Stove, have imitated and copied it ever since it was put on the market. But in looks only have they been able to reproduce this wonderful heater. For the features which make Cole's Hot Blast so economical in fuel, so effective in heating, and so dur able in construction, are all patented and protected. The joints of the ordinary stove are plastered with stove putty in an endeavor to make them air-tight.

The Bumbaugh Air Ship, which was a great feature of the" West Tennessee Fair, waa the real thing so iar 'a the maneuvering and handling of the ship was concerned. On Wednesday. Mr. Bumbaugh made a fine trip in considerable wind, maneuvering around the race track over the grand stand, and re turned to the very spot trom which he started, steering his frail craft fikillfully between trees and build ings, fully demonstrating that he was master of the situation, and had the machine under perfect con trol at au times. On Thursday Capt. Bumbaugh made two fine flights. Leaving the ground with his ten horse power gasoline motor buzzing like wild, he sailed around the grounds sev eral times, ascending to the height of 2,000 feet, and returning to the tatting-point on each occasion. -' On Friday the atrship was dashed into a huge oak tree and the gas; bag torn. The escape of the gas rendered a flight impossible on thiB trip, but by 2 o'clock the next morning Mr. Bumbaugh had the damaged balloon repaired and ready for the flight Saturday, which he was unable to make on account of the high wind, causing him much trouble during the entire week. On the whole, the airship was a. fine success, and Capt. Bumbaugh was very earnest ana sincere in nis praise of the courteous treatment he received at the hands of the Fair Association, and all the busiuess men of Union City.

'; Withinvthe State of Alabama the Southern makes sweeping reduc tions on all classes of freight. Up to date nothing has been heard about a reduction ot rates in Ten nessee, There is room-a whole "pas- passle of it in this State for lower express rates. The local merchan dise rates now in effect in this territory might be cut about 100 per cent and then be far above the much complaint of passenger rates. For instance, -a three-hundred pound passenger can buy a first class ticket to either Fulton or Obion for fifty cents. Ship an eight pound package to either place by express ana the cost will be at least i0 cents. But perhaps the rate clerk will come our way some day. At least we hope so. Gov.

Successful Experiments In Abating and Curing This Disease. Catarrh Is au entirely unnecessary disease and should not be tolerated for a single day now that Ilyomel is so generally known and has made so many cures in Union City and other towns. Until comparatively recent times catarrh was thought to be a blood dis ease and stomach dosing the only treatment. Modern scieucjjinally dis proved this idea of the cause of ca tarrh, and found that it was a germ disease and, after many experiments, the remedy was decided to be Ilyomel Jtlyomel medicates the air you breathe; it kills the catarrhal germs; it heals the smarting and raw mem branes of the passages in the nose and throat; it cures all catarrhal troubles. As there Is life and health in the air In the mountain-tops where the pine forests give off their fragrant and healing balsams, so there is life and health in breathing Ilyomel. There Is no need of suffering from ca tarrh If the simple and natural treat ment of nyoniei Is used. So sure Is this prescription to cure even the worst cases fif catarrh, that the Red Cross Pharmacy sell It under an absolute guarantee to refund the money if it does not do all that Is claimed for it.
