Mr. Semones has been hand ling automobiles for some time and is very familiar with various makes. The machine he is now handling is easily one of Ihe handsomest cars that come to this city. There has not been seen a better looking one, and its mechan ism is the product of the best skill and ingenuity. The car runs as smooth al most as a Pullman sleeper, and is capa ble of the highest speed with the least possiblo exertion. The body of the car is of the best material and workman ship. The cushions and springs are in deed a luxury of comfort. It is an easy driver, easily handled and aristocratic in appearance. Several of the cars have been delivered here already and orders are being placed for more. If you want the best and cheapest, use Bon Air coal. Union City Ice & Coal Company.

Coal Coke Wood Call Tel. 150. Death of R. H. DriskilL R. H. Driskill, a well known citizen, died at his home in this city last Sunday morning just-after midnight at 1:20 o' clock, May 8, 1010. Mr. Driskill had been very sick a few days only, but had not been feeligg well for some months. Immediate cause of death was attributed to the effects of a carbuncle. Robert Hayes Driskill was the eldest son of Jas. B. and Mary D. Driskill and was born in Carroll County, Tenn., in October, 1S54. When a small lad his parents moved to Trenton and there he grew to manhood and formed those traits which are essential to well round ed character. In the family were five sons and four daughters, and of these now surviving are George B. Driskill and Mrs. Annie Harris, this city; Clay Driskill, Tiptonville; Leon Driskill, Oran, Mo.; Mrs. Addie Harris and Mrs. Fannie Haynes, Brazil, Tenn. In January, 1881, R. II. Driskill lo cated in Union City and in October of the same year he and Miss Fannie Mott, of Gibson County, were united in mar riage at the home of the brido in that county. Of the union there were four children Mrs. Willie May Brausford, Miss Mary Lou, Miss Fannie Mott anxl Robt. II. ' Mr. Driskill had been engaged almost continuously for twenty-six or twenty seven years as traveling salesman for the Hafner Manufacturing Co., St. Louis, wholesalo dealers in building ma terials, and was eminently successful in his line of business. He was painstak ing, safe in judgment, untiring in his efforts, and esteemed alike for his worth by both employer and patron. Mr. Driskill was a member of the Travelers Protective Association and of the Iowa State Traveling Men's Associ ation and honored in every fraternal and business connection. At home he was a devoted husband and father and a citizen of the highest and best charac ter. He was associated with business and public life in Union City and sub stantially one of our leading men. Mr. Driskill was a member of the Methodist Church, in which he was per sonally and actively interested. He was a man of moral worth, fixed in his con victions of right, at tho same time friendly, genial and considerate. The city mourns the loss of a good citizen, and the family a kind, gentle, noble spirit. Services were held at the residence Monday morning at 9:30, conducted by Revs. Sellars and Stuart, assisted by Rev. Castleberry, of May field, Ky., and the remains were interred at East View Boy Logic. - Of course, everybody knows that character is made chiefly from the in side and not from rules applied on the outside, but everybody knows also that without some rules applied on the out side, our country would be in great dan ger of moral degradation, for the evil doer is always at hand. Hence a law that forbids the selling of liquor is a good law, even if it is broken some times. One of the best arguments for it is found in the following story of a boy who got the better of his father in the argument. Here is the story sent us by John T. Timmons, our blind writer of outdoor stories and articles for boys: Papa, what is a Prohibitionist?" 'A person who tries to make people drink more whiskey. " How do Prohibitionists make men drink more whiskey?" By passing a senseless law against making -and selling intoxicating drinks." How docs this law lead men to drink?" Because they will not obey it, my son. "Is it good to drink intoxicating li quors, papa?" No, my son. I hope you will never drink them. " What do men make them for?" Well, chiefly for drinking." If it is bad to drink them, is it "right to make them?" My son, you do not understand these things." No, I do not. But, papa, would not good people obey the law?" Oh yes! but there are very many bad people. " "Do the bad peoplo obey any law?" "Well, no; I am afraid they do not, willingly." Is there a law against stealing?" "Certainly, my son." "Does it make them stea?" "My son, it is time for you to go to bed." Exchange. Card of Thanks. We take this method of returning our gratitude to those who were so kind and attentive around the bedside of our dear little boy during his last illness and in tho hour of death. May the Giver of all Good kindly remember all these good friends. B. B. Hughes and Wife. TROY. The prospect is good for a new auto in Troy. Several parties are thinking of purchasing.

Peydon Pressly umpired the game in a most satisfactory manner, not a single exception taken on either side. The feature of the game was a home run by Fitz Maxwell. The game belonged to anybody till the ninth inning, when, with two on bases, King sent one to safe territory bringing in the winning score with none out. Troy 10, Union City 9. L. R.
