In discussing the resolution passed by tho Board of Mayor and Alderman last week we should have made a statement regarding the purpose of those who fa vorod the measure. It is remembered that the resolution asks tho Legislature for an enabling act to issue bonds for the construction of a complete system of concrete walks in Union City, in- tractions come to us at a small admis cluding curbing and gutter, the city sion, and those who would enlarge their to pay for the latter, the walks to be knowledge of science and letters and the chareed to the nronertv owner, each in- great field of musical lore cannot af dividual to the extent of walk required ford to miss this opportunity.

The sale of season tickets for the Redpatb. Chautauqua in Union City, June 19-23, 1912, begins this week in the hands of a local committee. In this connection it is important to make the statement that the rate of $2 for season tickets, good for the entire seven days to all performances and exercises, will remain in effect only until the opening cf the Chautauqua. On June 18 this price will be with drawn and season tickets cannot then be had for less than f-'.ol. It will save the purchaser of a season ticket, there fore, 50 cents by buying from the local committee and encourage local interest in the work. It is about settled that the Chautauqua tents will be pitched on on the grounds adjacent to the park on the south. The locality is very con venient and it is probable that the at tendance will bo larger there than it would be at the fair grounds on account of the distance. We urge all who can to buy a season ticket and encourage the enterprise. This will be by far the best entertainment Union City has ever had. It is a combination of talent never before venturing upon rural lo calities in the South and a short time only in some of the Northern States, It puts citizens of rural communities in touch with things that have hereto fore been accessible only in the larger cities and at considerable cost. The at- in value to the property improved no matter where the locality. The princi pal grounds, however, favoring the plan and the most reasonable and equitable seem to us to be that the property own er, after tho new walks are paid for, would have no more sidewalk taxes to J success in Union City.

As soon as the printed thereon, the filing of applica enabling act is passed and the bonds tions, etc, are issued the sidewalk tax is discon tinued, which we understand amounts to 80 cents on the hundred dollars of taxable values. The property owner, therefore, pays for nothing except his or Congressional Committee. Members of the Democratic Congres sional Committee for the Ninth District will meet in this city to-morrow.

The Union City Hih School com mencemect came to a close for the year at the opera house last Thursday night with exercises by the graduating class. The following program was heard, 'Unser Yater." German class. Salut atory "Growth of the South," Ruth Beeler. "Alte Yestiga Oculis," Smith G. Allen. Return of the Gentlewoman, Pauline Barney. Heroes of Everyday Life, Annie Laurie Caldwell. Pagan vs. Christian Religion, Lucile Coldwell. 'Die Lorelei," German class. Fortune and Endurance, Seth Horsley. Essence of Education, Lucile Nagel. Popular Favor, Myra Nash. Force of Character, Chas. Scott. "Im Herzen," German class. Woman in Business, Estelle Peoples. Woman of H. S. Literature valedictory, Louise Dahnke. Presenta tion of diplomas, superintendent. A large audienco graced the occasion. Every number was a piece de resistance, and the class was indeed representative in every respect. After tho exercises the Superintend ent, Mr. Nute, addressed the audience i the class. He ?poke of the changes in the faculty, and said that everything had been done for the best interest of the school. The purpose had been to increase the force according to the de- mands with better qualified teachers, The salary of every teacher had been in creased. A chemical laboratory is one of the new improvements lately estab ished in the equipment of the school It was the intention to increase the ap paratus for the demonstration of geog raphy, history, biology, and the Super intendent felt that the Board of Educa tion should be congratulated in the good work done. The school heeds the ad dition of a manual training and agri cultural department, and it is to be hoped that they will soon be successful in this work. Mr. Nute added that he had the pleasure of presenting no class with greater satisfaction than the present one. The Union City Public School has turned out some very fine young men and young women. They have been prepared for the universities and are making their marks up high in the field of learning. Years ago the Union City public school did not measure up to the standards of some of the schools even in our own State. Many of the district schools were probably as fortunate in the accomplishment of results. But with the advent of bettor educators, bet ter tutors, the school began to improve. Its growth was gradual, and step by step the school has developed until it is one of the very best in the South, so much so that people from every outlying lo cality have been moving to town to en joy the privilege of our educational ad vantages. The school, therefore, not only prepares our boys and girls, but it acts as a stimulus to the growth of our city. It is in fine one of our best in stitutions and the public generally is to be congratulated on the success attained Abreast the Times. ii Friendship. There's nothing in being hauty, In being proud and vain; If we are cold to others, They'll be cold to us again. Withhold the cup of water, Do not the kindly deed, And you may some day suffer For lack of a friend indeed. Character's not in station, And a royal soul may plod; And "an honest man," though poor, sir, "Is the noblest work of God." We all are transient mortals, And soon must leave this vale, And only be remembered As a half-forgotten tale. From our less fortunate brothers, We may turn in proud disgust, But at last we'll sleep as lowly In that narrow house of dust. Life is a wasting taper, That sheds around its light. But a few brief years, then, failing, The soul must take its fl ight. We should be brave and manly In the battle stern of life, But friendly, too, and helpful To others in the strife. Little cares the world for smartness. Of him that would make a show, But it treasuers the wealth of kind- ness True sympathy can bestow. There's strength and cheer in friendship, Not found any other where; It lightens every burden, And it eases every care. Oh, the right of might, may it perish Forever from the earth, And the right of help fraternal Have a universal berth! When Orpheus smote his harp chords Fierce beasts did meekly stand, And friendship makes a music That tames the beast in man. Would men to men be brothers, All one in friendship true; . Then peace would spread her pinions O'er earth and all be new. ,Tha song the angels chanted : O'er Juda's hills of old, Would fall from lips of millions, And bring back the Ago of Gold' Ecgexe P.'
