Grove Street Board of Mayor and Aldermen The regular meeting of the board was held last Tuesday night, with a few spe cial items in the way of Sunday closing and cleaning up. The Mayor produced the laws with reference to Sunday closing, and gave his opinion ou the subject, which is to the effect that busiuess of all kinds should be discontinued on Sunday with the exception of drug stores and res taurants, and in these the law prohibits the sale of goods in packages. But a customer may be served with meals and drinks, either hot or cold, not inelud ing, of course, anything of an intoxi eating nature. The Mayor recom mended the reading of the law, by the merchants and business men so that all may be posted on the subject. This, however, was his interpretation of the law as it has been applied in the State, and the board agreed with him. Mr. White reported on the sanitary condition of the city and a number of nuisances. He found that some sew age was being emptied and had been drained towards the crossing on Harri son street, where it was creating a bad odor and contaminating the air and the surrouudings. Several citizens had been ignoring the order to cut the weeds on their premises. Others were violating sanitary regulations, and preparations were made to enforce these ordinances at once. A committee from the Business Men's Club asked for a flat rate on a com mercial or independent circuit along the principal business streets for elec tric signs and display purposes, in order to better illuminate the street. The Superintendent of the Water and Light plant suggested that the plant was about loaded and wa3 not ready to take care of a surplus of lights. Sev eral of the aldermen thought the lights i should be furnished as per request and that if the plant was loaded or about loaded it should be enlarged. The Mayor opposed the extension of lights on the grounds that the city was about to enter on a general system of concrete walk building. A committee, however, was appointed to investigate the matter, in cluding the names of Dr. Blanton, Mr. Parks and Mr. White. A petition was read from Mr. Dob bins, asking for an extension of the street running south to a point east of the residence of his sister, Mrs. Ella Cathey. Mr. Dobbins is arranging to build two new residences on the new street and two cn Church street, all of them to be modern and expensive homes. The board agreed to open the street as soon as' Mr. Dobbins had per fected his plans to build. New Buildings. E. P. Grissom has ht the contract for his new store housa building on the lot east of the .a'.' Government post office.

We Answer Calls Promptly Day or Night. No Epidemic. The Mayor, J. A. Coble, Dr. M.'A. Blanton, and W. L. White, were in the office yesterday and authorized us to say to the public that there is no epidemic of meningitis in Union City. There have been only three cases in Union City during the last thirty days and one death. One of the cases has been well for two or three weeks. The last case was also light and is getting well. There is no cause for alarm at the spread of the disease in Union City, and it is probable that there will be no more cases here if the weather conditions remain good. The general impression is there are no local causes here for the disease, l hiT I In the J hi D In Memory of Mr. J. M. Moore. Mr. J. M. Moore, our county sur veyor, whose death occurred Sunday morning, June 16, 1912, has caused the hearts of thousands of people to be sad over the loss of such a good man. He was indeed and in truth an excep tion. He not only tried to be good himself but took extreme delight in helping others do right. He believed in doing unto others as he wished to be done by, and followed this rule closer than any man' I ever knew. Jim was a graduate of Davidson Col lege, North Carolina, also a grad uate of the Lebanon Law School. Many times have I tnown him to have some of the hardest problems in geometry to solve when he would tie holding the in stitutes, and not one in the schoolbook he could not solve. He was always' pleased when in the schoolroom and took great interest in his pupils. Mr. Moore vwasrtffiiied twice. His - . ' 11 r n 4 ' .. i irst wne was jhus iuviua xvuguis. -toa. r ;am" to ft 1.

He was mayor of this city a few years after he came here; was our county superintendent seven years. He made us a fine superintendent. Mr. Moore was a member of the State Board of Education for a number of years and was very prominent in the educational circle. He had hundreds of friends and was greatly admired by the teachers and pupils of the county and State. Mr. Moore had a good disposition He was kind hearted, good to his wife and children, full of sympathy for the unfortunate. ' He never neglected his duty and never pretended to be some tiling lie was not. Jim was all prin ciple. He had no desire to take, ad vantage of anyone or lord it over any body. He was very calm and pleasant, always willing to do the right thing christian gentleman from head to foot and honest as honest can be. His char acter was spotless. He would not com promise his manhood under any kind of circumstances, ;and. he was free irom the .very smallest defects. Jim loved hi? Miurch and' always attended every se'-- fe he could. . He was an elder in X!hristiari Church many years.' I yve been in his home when he would ask his wife to play. It would not be long before he would ask hej- to play some pretty songs she played at the church so much, for he liked all of them. i " - Mr. Moore was a splendid good man, No better man ever lived than Jim.
