Some time ago The Commercial spoke about the relative merits of the sewer age system and the scavenger service in Union City. Whilo we empha sized the benefits Union City had derived from the scavenger service we did not then intend to undervalue the sewerage system nor do we ever pro pose to do so. Left to us we do not hesitale to say that if we could have either sewerage or concrete walks, and could have one or the other only, we would take Bewerage without a foot of concrete walks. Always first give us sanitation health and proper sewer age mean h sanitation. . ouuie oi we towns around us are booHted greatly on account of their walks and compared to Union City to our disparagement. The walks are on the surface and they look nice to the Oiled Streets. John P. Adams, J. C. Burdick, Chas. T. Mo, Edwin K. White and Dr. il. Dlanton, members of the City Board, accompanied by Arthur F." TitLswor'th and John Baird, went to Martin Tues day and 6pent a most enjoyable after noou looking over the street improve ments recently completed at that place. They were met at the passenger sta tion by a number of hospitable gentle men, headed by Mayor J. T. rerkms and members of Martin Commercial Club. The visitors were loaded into autos and at once started on a tour of the city. The Federal census report gives Mar tin a population of 2,300. This same report might have very truthfully stated that it is the cleanest and best kept town of its size in Tennessee. To be sure, it is quite a chunk of a town and during the past three years since Capt. Per kins has been Mayor it has grown and improved by leaps and bounds. Capt. Perkins is a wonder, as all the older citizens hereabouts well know. From one end of Martin to the other can be seen the little enclosures where the violets bloom and the salvias, can nas, caladiums and chrysanthemums grow commonly known along the N., C. & St. L. Ry. as Jim Perkins' Park. Immediately in front of the public school campus we notice about three- Wedding AnnoncemenL Mrs. Fannie Driskill announces the marriage of her daughter, Mi.ss Mary Lou, to Mr. F. C.

This is a very interesting event to the many friends of the young people, both of whom are popularly admired and esteemed in this city by hosts of friends. CALENDAR FOR THE WEDDING. Mrs. R. P.

This is no joke we mean it But Union City is going to have the walks too, and that is what wo are going to talk about. Some time in the future, not many months, we hope, a campaign of walk building will be inaugurated These walks will be laid with due regard to permanency and symmetry. Now the point is this. Would it not be much botter and cheaper for thoso who antici pate connecting with the sewers to do so before these walks are built? Before the laying of the walks would it not be much botter and easier to ditch to the sower pipe in the street than it would be afterwards when necessary to tunnel under the walks. We lay the question before you. ou need the sewerage and intond to use it. Then why not have the work done before the walks are built. , A largo number of residents are now connecting with the sewers, more than some believe are doing so. Numbers of others arl arranging to do so. The people of I ...on City are going to take advantage of these sewers, and just in proportion as they do Union City will be that much better off than other tanceofGOO feet has been turned over to the city as a flower garden and named Perk ins Park." During the past two years they have graded and graveled eight miles of streets at a cost of about 13,000 per mile, and during the past few weeks have oiled seven miles of the graveled thoroughfares, and to inspect this work was the object of this visit by the mem bers of the Union City Board. The work is neatly done and works like a charm. It keeps down the dust and preserves the gravel work, keeps the driveways smooth and turns water like a duck's back. The members of the party were highly pleased with what they saw and they will favor something along this line for Union City streets before another summer. The oil and work of spreading, so they informed us, per mile, cost the city 1255.60. These streets will require another coat of oil next spring, and the experts tell us that they will then remain in perfect condi tion for two years with few repairs. During the past two years they have built sixteen miles of concrete sidewalks at an expense of 60 cents per running foot for 4-foot work". This work is done under the supervision of the city oflicials, but is paid for by the property owners. The city pays for the grading and the utary to The Commercial, in last week's paper. We feel like scolding some other of our good correspondents for notm porting this. Of course they were labor ing under the impression that we had the facts, and so we should. Mr. Glover and Miss Addie Moon, formerly one of Obion County's popu lar teachers, were united by Rev. Pressly at the minister's home in Troy on the 23d ult. The bride was a returned teacher from Oklahoma and Mr. Glover emphatically objected to her return to the schoolroom in Obion County. The young bachelor is now a bene diet, and Jim Russ" will no longer dip his pen, in red ink and write forget-me-nots while he is attempting to report the doings of a great community like that which surrounds Crystal. The Com mfercial will never forget, however, that, "Jim Russ" was one of the original members of the family of correspond ents which made The Commercial i welcome visitor in hundreds of homes thereabouts, and we wish him all the joy that so faithful a friend and so good a citizen deserves , Here's to you, 'Jim Russ, "and yours and may we hear more from yonr trenchant pen .made glorious with the crown of matrimony. t We have every sort of building and finishing lumber you're apt to need, including ' The Building Season NOW ON FRAMING, FLOORING, CEILING, SIDING Doors and Windows, Shingles A visit to our yards will be appreciated.

We are not urging the connections simply to uphold the administration in its policies, but aro doing so, as well as to defend tht sewerage system, bocause we believe in it. This paper was not one of the sowerage agitators. Other papers here did more of that than we hut Done the less we have always pinned our faith to sewerage, and we bolieve to-day it is one of the greatest improve nents any town ever undertook. There as nothing to compare with it when properly installed and utilized. We would therefore insist that all who can as promptly as possible iwake their con nections, and when the walks are built they will have no more of this work nor expense of same for years, In view of the fact that some of the best poultry and pet stock shows ever seen in this country are the results of work done by our fellow-citizen, W. E Andrews, at a number of the county fairs in West Tennessee this fall, we are inclined to make the suceestion that the West Tennessee Fair Circuit could profit greatly by securing the services of such a man as Mr. Andrews to man age this department of the work for the circuit fairs every fall.' The fact of the business is that the circuit Was organ bed for the purpose of taking advan tage of thoso things which might be had by co-operation, and so far no ad vantages have been derived except those connected with the races. Thcro should be a competent man for this depart ment, and none we k now is better suited for the work than Mr. Andrews. By this means exhibits cau be drawn from one fair to the other, and no fair in the State could have a better show of poul try than any of the fairs of this circuit. We beliwo co-operation in other depart ments of the circuit would also be ad vantageous. There should be some thing gained in the circuit organization besides the stables of racers. Business Men's Club meeting Tuesday night. Come out. next convey steam through large, asbestos- covered pipes to the city schools, and the heating system there is perfect. About 400 children attend this school. The Hall-Moody and McTyeire Schools have large enrollments. But these are old-time institutions at Martin. The Mayor and assistants escorted their guests to the Anderson Hotel, where they heartily enjoyed a splendid meal. It was well prepared and served in excellent style. The members of the party were ready to appreciate a royal feast, and they did. Capt. Parkins is wide-a-wake, full of hustle and enterprise, and thinks a whole lot of Martin. Martin stays "spruced up" every day in Sunday attire, assumes city airs and thinks lots of Capt. Perkins. The towa is easily the shining star of Weakley County, and to this good hour t have failed to figure whether Mayor Perkins is the glittering gem on the bosom piece of the city of Martin or the city of Mar tin is the glistening ruby on the shirt front of Mayor Perkins. They both shine. The bonded indebtedness of Martin is 154,000, and the city tax rate is $1.10. Two men and a superintendent are employed at the water and light plant, two policemen and a street man, and a volunteer fire company is afforded. The members returned home at 7:40. They are full of their trip, and if you want to hear "rock roads" and streets as "slick as grease" attend the next meeting of the Business Men's Club or the City Board meeting. Marriage Licenses.
