The members of the First Christian Church, this city, are making plans for the erection of a new church building on the site now occupied by their prcs ent structure, an old building which has been in use for many years and is i adequate for the present needs. The new church will be built at a cost of not less than fifteen thousand dol lars, and we understand that pledges are already made assuring these figures. 3.00 The denomination is one of the strong est in the city in every wav and suf- ficbntly able to build a comfortable and attractive home for its worship. We are certainly pleased to make the an nouncement. It is probable that the work done during the past year may stimulate a great deal more building in Union City this year. We trust that the $80,000 figure last year will be doubled. This estimate was made from actual figures reported to this office by Mr. Ben Bransford, of the firm of T. L. Bransford & Son, and they are ap proximately correct. REMEMBER This New Year Weather... will be anything but thoroughly enjoyable if you have fuel trouble.

And, then, there's James M. Hickman, the popular deputy sheriff down in Number Twelve. He has friends over the county and they feel sure he will be in the next sheriff's race.
