Cardui. On the wrapper are full directions for use.

established in thousands of homes, as a safe remedy
for pain which only women endure. It is reliable,
contains no harmful ingredients and can be depend

writes: "Tongue cannot tell how much Cardui lias done for me.
Before I began taking Cardui I could not do a day's work. I

Overall Factory.
Mr. Rice, of Martin, was in the city
again last Tuesday night and met with-

the committee reported that about $3,000
stock bad been subscribed. The sub
scription asked for was$ii,(M.K, or $5,000
paid up. Sever present at the meeting
increased their subscription and others
subscribed. Still there was considera
ble discrepancy.
Mr. Coble and Mr. Carter both stated
that they had not finished the canvass,
and Mr. Coble thought that more sub
scription. could be secured.
It is an enterprise that would con
tribute in. many ways' to Union City's
growth. It is of .such character that
the freight rate cuts very little figure
andjherefore Union City has as many
advantages to otter ,in location as any;
other point. She has lietter advantages 1
in many ways. An overall factory is a i
practical enterprise. Overalls and jump- i
ers are a staple. Every clothing mer- (
chant handles them. They are sold ;
everywhere. There are no advantages j
to be derived by buying overalls in a i
city, and therefore we can manufacture
and sell overalls as well as any point in
the world.
Mr. Rice is a practical man, and the
company lias arranged to nave a well
known business man at the head of the
concern, union iiiy people are there
fore protected against any ordinary risk
in investing their money. This balance
should be made up and the enterprise
should be started at once.
It would not do at all to let this op
portunity fall through. The cotton gin
and the cannery are both the best of
successes, and the overall factory stock
will sell for a profit in a few months,

Cotton Gin.
Tho Union City cotton gin has been
running day and night for some time.
Cotton has been coming in from all sec
tions. Missouri has ferried across the
Mississippi and sent us several loads.
Mr. Pittmsn, the manager, is still pay
ing the highest prices received for cot
ton in this- country and it is coming in
from everywhere.
Wo speak of the Union City cotton
giu. Ordinarily this is a matter of small
importance in a cotton country, but this
is not a cotton country, and that is why
it deserves more than the usual interest.
The prices prevailing here for several
days have been $4. 'JO and $5.00. The
best quality lias been bringing $5.00
right along, and that means the bulk of
the cotton brought here.
Union City is growing to be a cotton
market, and the news is spreading.
Nothing like it to give us a good boost.
The next best thing is to cinch the over
all factory, invite more factories and
let's quit politics and go to doing busi
ness, which is of some value to us locally.
Hurrah for the cotron gin".

Stomach Agony and After Dinner
Distress Stopped in 5 Minutes.
Why should any sensible person con
tinue to suffer day after day with terri
ble stomach ailments, when the Red
Cross Pharmacy guarantees MI-O-NA
stomach tablets to cure even the worst
case of indigestion, or money back.
If your stomach rebels after eating
and food sours or ferments in the stom
ach, causing gas, pain, heartburn and
heaviness, two MI-O-NA tablets will
drive away the misery in five minutes
and leave the stomach f.eeling splendid.
A large box of MI-O-NA stomach
tablets costs 50 cents at tho Red Cross
Pharmacy and leading druggists everywhere.
If you have stomach trouble of any
kind, start to using MI-O-NA stomach
tablets to-day. They not only build up
the stomach, but they act as a tonic to
tho entire body. They are makers of
rich red blood and nerves that never
flinch: they increase vitality and make
tho weak more vigorous.

Health is Worth Saving, and Some
Know How to Save It.
Many Union City people take their
lives in their hands by neglecting the
kidneys, when thVy know these organs
ueed help. Sick kidneys are responsi
ble' for a vast amount of suffering and
ill health, but there is no need to suffer
and remain in danger when all diseases
and aches and pains due to weak kid
neys can be quickly and permanunlly
cured by the use of Doan's Kidney
Pills. The following statement leaves
no ground for doubt:
J. A. Elego, Ellison street, Hickman,
Ky., says: "It would be impossible
for me to fully express my (hanks to
Doan's Kidney Tills fur the benefit
they brought me. I suffered from pains
in my back and also had frequent head- j
aches. Doan's Kidney Pills were final
ly brought to my attention and I pro
cured a supply. They freed my back
from pain and stopped the other an
noyances in a short time. Doan's Kid
ney Pills are excellent and I gladly re
commend them."

the patrons of the opera house this week
an attractive offering in the shape of a
musical melange and scenic production.

and the comedy better. 'It is a far bet

company some years ago. the Jieii
Boy" was Monday night s bill, Tuesday
night The Man Question," and Wed
nesday night "Zira from Turkey."
itch one of tho attractions was pro
vided with special scenery. The Red
Mill and the lady taking a voyage in a
balloon around the audience Tuesday
night were the features in the scenic
equipment and they were first-class in
very respect. Ihe audiences were not
large, but those present enjoyed the en
tertainment immensely.

elder Galvin, who has been in the theatri
cal line for fifty years. Johnna and Ella
are his son and daughter, and the whole

very great improvement over their
