STOP THE STRENUOUS LIFE Weakens the Tissues and Lessens Organic Vitality. The stress and strain of the stren uous life in both city and country tends towards stomach troubles. Five people suffer to-day where one did ten years ago with sick headache, dizziness, flatulence, distress after eating, specks before the eyes, bloat ing, nervousness, sleeplessness and the many other symptoms of indiges tion. All who are suffering with stomach troubles, and that means at least two out of three in Union City and other towns, should use Ml-o-na stomach tablets. No thin? else is as safe, yet effective; nothing else can be so thor oughly relied upon to relieve all trou bles from indigestion as Mi-o-na. It is not a mere digestive taken af ter the food is eaten, but a true tonic, stimulant and strengthener for the muscular walls of the stomach, in creasing the flow of digestive fluids and putting the stomach into such condition that it does the work Na ture expects of It. So reliable is Mi-o-na in its curative action that the Red Cross Drug Store, with every 60-cent box they sell give a guarantee to refund the money un less the remedy does all that is claim ed for it.

Gordon Chapter had the . - r i ' -a ii . t - -: . pleasure oi meeting at iue oospu- able home of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Da vis, near Terrell. It is useless to ay that the invitation was accept able, for there were seventeen mem bers from this town on the 3 o'clock train who were met'at Terrell by the gallant son, Mr. Will Davis.and Dan Beckham and all enjoyed a nice hay ride out to the beautiful country home, which was indeed a treat. We were met at the gate by the kind host and hostess, and each one was given a hearty wel come. The chapter was called to order by our president, Mrs. Chas. Burchard, and important business attended to. The old folks con cert, which will come off at an ear ly date, was also discussed. Two new members had their names en rolled that afternoon, after which the meeting adjourned. We were then invited out into the spacious dining room with plates laid for about twenty. The supper con sisted of three courses and it would be useless to try to give a full de scription of everything, but will mention part of the menu: Good old ' country ham boiled, celery, cornbread, muffins, biscuit, light- bread, chickens fried, and al! kinds of salads, pickles of every descrip tion, preserves, jam, jelly, coffee, tea and milk. Second course: dif ferent kinds of fine cakes and peaches. Third course consisted of all kinds of nice fruits. The long table actually groaned under its heavy burden. But I am sure after each one had finished it felt greatly relieved aud I am sorry that I cannot write enough to give the supper justice, but can truthfully say that it was highly enjoyed by each one present. Each one heart ily thanks Mr. and Mrs. Davis, also the ladies from that neighborhood who were present and did every thing in their power to entertain the crowd. Also each one wishes to express thanks to Mr. Will Da vis and Master Dan Beckham for the many kindnesses shown to the ladies. The occasion will be long remembered by the Daughters of the Confederacy. Just as the first table had finished supper, Mrs. Forney Arnn politely arose and of fered a dainty little toast to the kind hostess and all, which was highly enjoyed by each one. It has been rumored that Mrs. Ebberhart beat her way to Terrell, and that Mesdames Arnn and Jack son eat more ham and muffins than all present, and that Misses George and Bradshaw drank two glasses of sweet milk and eat all the pick- es and robbed Terrell of all its post cards; that Mr. Massey had LASTS S212.
