To the Voters.
To tbe people of Weakley, Obion and Lake counties: I hereby announce my candidacy for re-election to the Senate of Tennessee, from the counties of Weakley, Obion and Lake, subject to tbe a tion of the Democratic party, and ask that I be given the usual indorse ment of a second term. Roht. A. Elkins. . A Statement To the Democracy of Obion Couuty: For several years the Democratic party has been rent and torn by factional strife. As a result a strongly Democratic State Las been ruled and run by the Republi can party since 1910, and the sessions of the Legislature have been disgrace fully discorded. Politicians of all fac tions have trafficked in the rights of the people and the general interest of the 8tate has suffered. Realizing that the public, we! fare demands the restoration of political peace, I am convinced that political peace can only come with Democratic harmony. Now as sensible and business men let us have peace and prosperity that we may enjoy the great wave of propperity that is now sweeping over our great country, and in order to liave peace and harmony I am in favor of the rigid enforcement of all laws and complete submission to all the temper ance laws as they now exist. , That is the question that has rent us asunder, and politicians have taken the advantage of the strife and discord. Our next Legislature should be of good business and patriotic men who will enact good and wholesome laws, such as will be for the development of our agricultural and all commercial interests of the State, and if I was a member of that great body I would stand for tbe following: First, For the strict enforcement of all temperance laws, and the reinforce ment of the same if necessary. Second, For maintaining our public school system and for improving our .public highways. Third, I am in favor of passing an anti-pass bill v I am of the opinion that the issuing of passes is not in the in terest of the people, especially the State officials should not ride on free passes while serving the people. Whether men .are biased or not by them it is dangerous and should not be allowed by the State. Fourth, I am in favor of strengthening our experimental station at Nashville in protecting our farmers in stamping out hog cholera. The farmers of the United States last year lost $60,000,000 of hogs by that destructive disease, and I would do Jill in my power to pass a fair and a just revenue and assessment law. -1 am aware of the fact that that is hard to do. Those are some of my principles that I think would be for tbe public welfare, for peace and prosperity, and for the -moral and financial uplift in our great Btate. As to restoring the party, every true Democrat in Obion County desires the rehabilitation of the Democracy in its purity and power in Tennessee, and all that is needed is for the rank and file to exercise good judgment and common sense. -Dr. F. M. McRee. Judge Kenney would like to suggest . that spring is coming on and that the duty of the road commissioners is to put the roads in good condition as early as possible. The levees especially need attention. The roads have been very good indeed this winter, with the excep tion of some holes in the levees. About , the only real winter weather this season was in February, and it is likely that the roads need dragging now to be in good order. This should be done in season and not to be neglected for pri vate duties. The law provides regula tions for road work, and if they are followed properly the county needn't ever complain of bad roads except in a severe spell of bad weather. The Moose Lodge. The lodge of the Loyal Order of Moose in Union City is now enjoying the pleas ure of their attractive cluh rooms, which have been decorated in the best style and furnished with some of the most . comfortable chairs and convenient fix tures, provided with reading room, pool tables and other amusements and some of the best literature. There are also other conveniences in the club which make the quarters very attractive. The club is located in the Dietzel building on tbe corner of First and Church, and the membership is increasing every week, " , ' Farmers and others who live, at a dis tance from a drug store should keep in - tbe house a bottle of BALLARD'S 8N0W LINIMENT.

His suspicions were arroused, and offering an excuse to go out and have some clothing altered be looked for an officer. But the Moose grafter made his gotaway.

Because It's For One Tuino Only, and Usioji City People Appreciate It. Nothing can be good for everything. Doing one thing well brings success. Doan's Kidney Pills are for one thing only. - . For weak or disordered kidneys. Here is Union City evidence to prove their worth. T. L. Lancaster, Depuly Circuit Court Clerk, Union City, Tenn., says: "When I used Doan's Kidney Pills some time ago, they gave me relief from kidney trouble and I publicly recommended them. I'feel justified in confirming that statement." Lancaster is only one of many Union City people who have gratefully en dorsed Doan's Kidney Pills. It your back aches if your kidneys bother; you, don't simply ask for a kidney remedy ask distinctly for Doan's Kidney Pills, the same that Mr. Lan caster had the remedy backed by home testimony.

The last attraction of the Redpath winter course, under the auspices of the ladies of Union City, appeared at the Reynolds Theatre Thursday night. The first number was by Marie Kryl, selec tions from Schubert and Paganini-Liszt. Here were the heights and depths of the gamut and the technic of great genius They were classics of the highest order aod the young girl, without the score, displayed the most wonderful skill and power, more remarkable than all a sur passingly wonderful musical memory. Her attack and her entire performance were worthy of the masters whose genius have moved the world. Miss Josephine, the violinist, Is also a a wonderful young lady. They are both in short dresses and braids. She has discovered the secrets of the old in strument which made the past masters famous. The inspiration of her musical genius kindles the flame in her fingers, and tbey are charged with the power of her art. She is a musician whose cult is easily recognized. And Kryl. He is almost at home in Union City. Our people have grown to worship his music. Great as a corneter, the music world has no greater. But with all that Kryl is more remarkable as a musician. He has lived with the mas ters for years and he is a master himself. His compositions are classics, but as a bandmaster and arranger of scores his art reaches its highest. His band work is wonderful. He is a famous band mastor, and stands alone in the wonder ful assemblage of his instrumental voices and the creatiop of harmony and tonal effects. - The Kryls were enjoyed by a large audience who enjoyed every number and everv phrase of the delightful con cert. We would like to see them again. IMiearsals for the St. Patrick's Min strels to bo given at the Opera House on March 17 by the young men oi tne Hieh School are well under way.
