Burcbard, Union, Tenn., nnd othos Dear Sirs: A petition -which has been recently forwarded by you to the President of the- Mobile & Ohio Railroad, has been sent to nie for reply. There never was a time in the history of this Company when we were forced to exercise more care in regard to every expenditure than must be done at present. The greatly increased cost of a great many of the elements which go to make up the expense of operating a railroad has ' made it necessary to watch every expenditure which can be in any way controlled with the closest scrutiny. . Upon a recent occasion I visited Union City by Instructions of the Presi dent, for the purpose of examining into the passenger depot facilities at this point. In company with the Mayor, I made a personal inspection of the sta tion, and found some good causo for complaint, which steps were immedi ately taken to remove. The station building itself, however, if kept in proper order, and properly policed, to which end the Mayor has pledged us his assist ance, is not deficient in any material way; that is to say, it is as good if not better than at many other points along this line, with proper consideration for the relative business of these other points and Union City. I hope before this time that the condition of this building has been improved, and that a large part of your cause of complaint has been done away with. Yours truly, " ' ; It. X. Taylor, Vice President & General Manager. January 18, 1912. Catarrh Cannot be Cured with tOCAT. APPLICATIONS, M they cannot reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is a blood or constitutional disease, and in order to cure it you must take internal remedies. Hull's Catarrh Cure is taken internally and sets directly on the blood and mucous surfaces. Hall s Catarrh Cure is not a quack medicine. It was orescrihed hv one of the best physicians in this country for years aim is a regular prescription. It is com posed of the best tonics known, combined with the best blood purifiers, acting directly on the mucous surfaces. The perfect combination of the two insr redients is what produces such won derful results in curing Catarrh. Send for testi monials free. F. J. CHENEY & CO., Props., Toledo, O.

It gave us much pleasure to read the account of the family rfiunion at the home of our old friend and teacher, Mr. Pleas Cummings, near Roellen, Gibson County. Especially were we glad to hear ' that Aunt Ann Parks had the pleasure of meeting her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We wish for her many more peaceful years in her old ago and hope she may live to enjoy many other reunions. We.like many others.have a profound admiration for those who cling to their youthful ways and try to live over thi;ir youngdays again after they get old. We were amused when a friend told us that Selmo Harris had made him a sled and was coasting on the ice covered hills near his home.
