Union City Ladies - .
Aid War Sufferers.
Mrs. W. H. Swigjf art, complimented
a number of bor women friends, among
whom are many adept seamstresses, by
inviting tbem to her home Thursday
afternoon to help make compressed Red
Cross bandages for that society, to be
forwarded from the Nashville head
quarters to London, England. These
bandages will be distributed among
millions of others to the various tield
hospitals over suffering Belgium and
France.
The ladies so fortunate as to be able
to attend Mrs. Swiggait's afternoon
were armed wiih their threads, needles
and scissors, and in a short time, made
all the shorter by the interest in their
jtood work, made many yards of ban
dages, which will be sent to Nashville
immediately.
Hot chocolate and wafers were served
midway of the afternoon.
It is needless to say that hi every
titch put into the rolls of cloth that
may ease the pain and stop lb o escap
ing life blood of some poor soldier. A
prayer was entered from Union. City
mothers and wives that this dreadful
and insane slaughter in Europe may
soon end. : -

It did me more good than ail the medi

I have Induced many of my friends to

Public Spirit.
Swift & Company, realizing fully
of the Southern farmer, have adopted
through their large fertilizer interests
in the South a new plan to relieve
the cotton situation . They are cer
tainly doing their share in helping
the South by their consumption of cot
ton cloth
Although already large users of cot
ton, cotton seed oil and other south
ern products, they are making this
year a special effort to increase the use
use of cotton goods in all departments
of their numerious plants.
Cotton. bags, cotton sheeting, aud
cotton coverings for meats are being
substituted wherever possible. An ordi
nary year.s requirements for this firm
amouuts to over ten million yards,
and with their present "Help th2
South" policy their consumption of
cotton goods will be largely increased.
One item alone, that'of using cotton
instead of jute tankage pre.-s cloths,
has aided 300,000 yards to the Swift
consumption.
This is surely a shot in the right
direction and one the South can fully
appreciate. We hope that their initia
tive will start a movement which will
become even more beneficial than the
"Buy a Bale of Cotton" propaganda.
We could stand more big corpora
tions imbued with the public spirit
of Swift & Company
