Notice to the Public On Saturday next, Nov. 8, 2:30 p. m. there will doubtless be the biggest and best football game ever played in Union City, when Huntingdon and the Train ing School match their colors and test their ability and strength on the Train ing School gridiron. Five separate shows are combined in the evening's entertainment: First is a scenic spectacle with a stage setting of remarkable beauty, "Minstrels of the Nations;" then comes the Aviation Meet, "The Days of '61," followed by Henderson, Lewis and Harvey, clever musicians, with just enough comedy to give their act a snap and go, which car ries well across the footlights, and then a tropical travesty, "In Panama," also finely staged.

The Training School has played four, winning three and tied Clinton (7 to 7), whom Huntingdon defeated Saturday last, 13 to 6. When the Train ing School played Clinton their only star man was McAlister, one of the very best prep players in the country. Huntingdon defeated Clinton without this star, so you may count on thin be ing a snappy game from beginning to the end. You can't afford to miss this game. If you are interested in clean athletics, -come out and get more so, and spend an hour of real recreation and excitement. If you are not inter ested, come to this game and we will assure you that you will be glad and will come again!

To the Editor of the Banner: Some friend has mailed me a marked copy of your excellent paper contain ing an article signed K. A. Clopton, Milan, Tenn., and entitled Concerning Patterson." 1 I shall make no comment whatever upon that remarkable fulmination, but its publication calls for some remarks from me "concerning Patterson." At the outset I will say that I was never a political follower of Governor Patterson, and I will further say that I was and am an admirer of the lamented Carmack. I will also say that I am an humble servant of Him, 'who came to seek and to save sinners, and I rejoice in a fel lowship with a God who rejoices over the return of one wanderer, even though he had wandered for and sinned much. I am perhaps in a better position than any man in the Mate to express an opinion as to the genuineness of Gov ernor Patterson's conversion and as to the sincerity of bis motives in reversing his position in regard to the liquor ques tion. Without hesitation, I say that I Of neve witn an my neart iu&i ne is a changed man and I have no doubt whatever as to his sincerity. I am proud of his friendship and rejoice in the Providence that has thrown us to gether. , I have never met a man who more fully met the gospel conditions and who baa since shown the fruits of a genuine repentance and conversion. I make this statement gladly for it is due the man whose motives have been so cruelly assailed. I make it because all over the State there are numbers who know me and know that I would nut past alignments are calling for him to make anti-liquor speeches and he is ac cepting as many of their invitations as he can. Good men will at least be charitable in their attitude toward this new cham pion for temperance. Christians will welcome him and sustain him with He is entitled at best to a suspension of judg ment.
