Mrs. Berryhill, Editor. Telephone 140. Kfodly report u early as con "renient. Everybody fighting but the heathens. Every once in a wbwe Mr. Roosevelt gets bis came in the papers. Mr. John D. Rockefeller is a great artist. He does the people in oil. Notwithstanding the poor crops raised on Fifth Avenue, New York City, land there is worth $10,000,000 an acre. . It is never too late to join the great array of peace. A woman in Texas has just had her spleen cut out at the age of sixty. The Russian people cheered their Czar as he drove through the streets of St. Petersburg. They must have thought he was going away. Of course Texas stayed wet. It is no easy matter for most of the people in that State to step across over into the next State to get a drink. 'Does Prohibition Tay?" is the lead ' iog topic in a great many of the cur rent magazines. Well, prohibition in Union City certainly pays in Cairo. The only way for the tripple entente and the tripple alliance nations to occu ry the whole of the newspapers is to start something in the football or base ball lines. er ... Lawn Party. The pretty lawn of Mr. and Mrs. II P. Taylor on Cheatham street was the scene of a lively party last Friday night when it was given over to a crowd of young people in honor of the visits here of little Misses Margie Biandenburg, of Frankfort, Kansas, and Lorine Bar nett, of Dickson. The smooth grassy space beneath the lantern-hung trees was studded with tables and chairs.

Lemonade was served throughout the evening.

A picnic planned by Mrs. Dock Car ter for Mrs. Howard's Sunday school class of the Cumberland Church and a delightful country dinner at the pleas ant home of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Stone west of tflwn were the happenings of .Friday, the twenty-first. Mrs. Carter suggested the idea of a class picnic for the members of Mrs Fulton Howard's class with outside in vited guests. The members of the class and their guests met at the home of their toacher and friend at nine o'clock in the morning and were taken to the country home of the Stone's, who had prepared their beautiful wooded lawn for the occasion and where dinner was spread on two long dining tables be neath the trees. Before the dinner two old-fashioned games were played. They were "Gos sip" and "The Parson's Cat." The first game may have been thought a bur lesque on a favorite occupation of the Jay with some ladies and gentlemen, but it was a very real representation of what happens sometimes. The game .started by a whispered piece of gossip from one lady to another and so pass ing around a circle hastily. When it arrived at its porpetrator it was as much like what it was when it started as black is like white. Mr. Carter and Mr. Lntta, who had brought the class out in their farm wagons, had also brought some splen did melons from the former's patch, which were opened in the late after noon. Mr. Stone had had a young kid barbecued for the occasion by the most rcliablo colored cooks, and as the other viands were supplied ty some of the best cooks in town, the dinner was a great Buccess. After the meal talks were given by Mesdames J. D. Little ton, C M. Zwingle, W. J. Davidson, Emma Coldwell and Rev. C. M. Zwingle'. Those who were present were Mr. and Mrs. Latta, Rev. and Mrs. Zwingle and children, Mr. and Mrs. Sam Stone and son, Mr. and Mrs. Fulton Howard, Mesdames Davidson, Peeler, Tom Lati mer, Burney, D. N. Walker, Florence .Harris, Harriet Osborn, McCutchen, Worn Adam Semones, RobL Batta, J. D. Lit tleton, W. H. Gardner, John Adams, Fannie Reeves, Emma Coldvred and Misses Sara Harvey, Lou Trautwein and Alice Thomas. Alumni Picnic The Alumni picnic held by the stu dents of the Union City Training School on Friday last at Sulphur Springs was a great success. Prof. Frank Aydelott hobnobed with his past and present pupils to bis heart's content and almost started an alumni baseball club. Every thing to eat was there and secondary in importance, of course, some of the most popular young ladies in the county. The leading feature of the day was an old-fashioned square dance on the bran square beneath the trees in the even ing. Two of the famous Stanley boys had been inveigled to attend with their fiddle and guitar. The clever one who blows on a jug was playing baseball with Harris Station and was missed. However, the dancing was very delight ful and all the participants came home t ,1 i i 1 t i in ringing wet ciotues ana nau coiua afterwards, which is certain proof of happy hours with a young person. Several white people from here drove over" to Rives Saturday and bought some of the fine barbecue cooked there for the colored picnic holding forth on that date. The barbecue was prepared by Uncle George Yancy, Col. Wbitesell's able chef, and it was greatly enjoyed here. The local union of the W. C. T. U. will meet on the first Friday in Sep tember. The election of officers will j be held at this meeting. The county convention will meet at Kenton sept. 11. A program of the proceedings will be published in next week's local press.
