Wanted a Ride.
There was a little hundi-back man
in town Saturday who wanted to go to
Treuten, but did not have the price t0
go on the train, so he went around
back of the dry-goods stores, where a
great many country people hitch their
horses, and took his choice. It hap
pened to be one that Miss Zana Rives
and her brother, Clifford, had driven in.
Miss Zana saw him driving down the
street, but thinking her brother bad
loaned it to him for a few minutes
thought no more about it until they got
ready to start home. Then the rig was
nowhere to be found.
They they got busy telephones were
in demand, and they found that he had
left town by the way of Jackson's
grocery on his way to Trenton. Mr.
Easterwood then took charge and
'phoned to Troy.Rives and Polk to be on
the look out for him. He arrived in
Troy ahead of time (considering the
bad roads) and offered his rig for sale.
It is needless to say "the marshal
took him up." The man's name is
Ward and his father Jives' down near

Couldn't Walk !
"I used to be troubled with a weakness peculiar to
women," writes Mrs, Anna Jones, of Kenny, III. "For
nearly a year, I could not walk, without holding my sides.
I tried several different doctors, but I grew worse. Finally,
our druggist advised Cardui for my complaint I was so
thin, my weight was 115. Now, I weigh 163, and I am
never sick. I ride horseback as good as ever. I am ia
fine hoalth at 52 years."

Union City is now being infested
with a lot of housebreakers and bur
glars. ; Some few weeks ago the jewelry
stores of Bransford & Andrews and Diet
zel Bros, were broken into, and last
Monday night the grocery store of N.
A. Vaden was burglarized and the
Metcalfe Laundry entered. The person
or persons who entered the jewelry
stores shot a hole through Bransford &
Andrews' front door glass and through
Dietzel Bros.' front door.
The burglars this week entered the
grocery store from behind by cutting a
hole in the panel and reaching in and
removing the board which is used for a
bar. They got into the. safe and took a
lot of pennies, the only money left
there, and while at work were discover
ed by Mr. Hallum, who lodges next
door. They saw him peeping through
the window and fled from the back door
through which they entered. Io break
ing into the laundry evidently they
thought it another building. Nothing
was b6thered in that house. Union
City has had a good deal of this work
in times past, and a general outbreak
of this kind will find something doing.

One of the most popular plays seen
in recent years is "The Wolf," and the
company presenting it here last Wednes
day night was indeed a good one, es
pecially the rendition of the parts of
Andrew McTavish and Jules Baubcin, by
Mr. Crockett and Mr. Reidy, reflective
ly. This was character work in all re
spects except that Mr. Keidy played the
lead. The dialect of the Scotchman and
the French Canadian were both very
fine indeed. It is not often Union City
playgoers get the benefit of artistic
handling of character parts. These are
neglected in the usual run Of rural per
formances. The character work forms
the background of most of the great
successes. In othor words it is the
company with an all-star cast that comes
into greatness in the big theatres. While
those who succeed in the character work
seldom ever reach the center of the stage,
they are stars nevertheless, and the stage
world knows them when they are for
gotten by the public. The reputation
of the recognized star often comes large
ly from the support behind. '
"The wolf" presented here pleased
quite a large audience.
