A very large crowd of people from the different sections of country nearby attended the barbecue and ice cream supper at l'leasant Valley last Thursday night.

The meat was cooked by Mr. Gent Palmer, and. the tables were supplied with other choice meats, salads, pies, etc. The tables were looked after by Mrs. Fonzo White, Mrs. Stone, Mrs. Cary, Mrs. Moss and others of that vicinity. Other tables with ice cream were superintended by the young ladies. The receipts were over eighty dollars, with net proceeds of about thirty dollars. The Fleasaut Valley neighborhood has improved probably as rapidly as any other community in the county. It adjoins the southeastern boundary of Union City, and boasts of one of the strongest and best district schools, a nice comfortable church buildingwell improved agricultural and stock farms, beautiful residences, nice lawns and everything that tends to the comfort and pleasure of rural life. One of the latest of the new residences just finished was built by Mr. Anselmo Harris. Mr. Harris, who is an expert at wood carving, informs us that as soon as he can spare the time he is going to begin the work of ornamen tation for the entrance and approach to his residence in the way of lions and other statues. The work will all be done by hand with the exception that machinery will be used in shaping the crude material. Obion County has probably as many good, intelligent citizens as any other county in the United States. There is no better country and no better people on earth, and Pleasant Valley has de veloped into one of the most progres sive and enlightened of all these fine neighborhoods.

Chivpel, Regis ter of Obion County, to be forwarded to the Secretary of the State for a char ter for the Farmer's Exchange Bank, of Union City. The incorporators, are S F. Howard, Cato Davis, Jr., W. C. Har ris. II. P. Moss. Harris Parks. The capital stock will be $25,000. It has been understood for some time that another bank was to be established in Union City, and this is the first official nroceediner in such an organization. It has also been understood that the build ing formerly occupied by the Obion Democrat had been rented for this pur pose. There is also some speculation about the bank going into the new Nailling building to be erected on the corner of First street and Washington avenue. All these matters, however, are immature, as no definite action can be had until the charter is returned and the stockholders meet and organize, which will be done this week. There is one thing reasonably sure Harris Parks will be cashier of the bank, he having been personally re sponsible for its organization, in the work of which he has been engaged for several months. There are few men better equipped or trained in banking than Harris Parks and none who enjoy a greater local distinction in that line, Four banks in Union City seem a little out of proportion, but it is reasonably certain that there is enough hnancial interests in Union City and adjoining territory to keep these four banks well supplied with business, and the fact that the banking facilities and accom modations are being enlarged and the number of accomplished and reputable bankers increased will undoubtedly re sult in the addition of a greater volume of bankihg in Union City.
