Entered at the post office at Union City, Ten nessee, as second-class mail matter. Marshall fc Baird, Union City, Tenn. FRIDAY, MARCH 12, 1915. The death of Mr. Johnsie Sanders leaves a vacancy in the office of Trustee of Obion County and Clerk C.S. Talley has called a special meet ing of the Obion County Court to fill the vacancy thus made to "be held on Saturday, March 20. 1915, at which time a successor will be named to fill the unexpired term, which began last September. We understand that the candidates who have announced for the office at the next election have entered into an agreement, and a very satisfactory one apparently, whereby Mr. Harry Atkins, who has been acting as deputy under his father-in-law, Mr. Sanders, may qualify for the posi tion without opposition, Mr. Atkins, on his part, agreeing not to be a candidate to succeed himself. This arrangement seems to be the best that could be made. It gives the family of Mr. Sanders the benefits of the full term, for which he was elected, and at the same time does not interfere with the candidates who are in the race for the next term. The candidates, on their part, have also acted in good faith and in a generous way in the matter. It is a solution to be desired. The court will convene in special session on the 20th and no doubt carry out the provisions of the agreement. W. C. T. U. At a meeting of the W. C. T. U. Tuesday afternoon at the Masonic Hall Mayor T. R. Reynolds was pres ent by invitation and made an ad dress to the members of the local un ion. Mayor Reynolds assured the ladies that he is in sympathy and ac cord with with every movement to prohibit the sale of intoxicating liquors and the work of the W. C. T. U. He pledged himself to co-operate with the ladies in their work, and on behalf of the law-abiding citizens of Union City would do all that he could in his official capacity, as well as by his individual efforts, to clear Union City of bootlegging. Mayor Reynolds has probably made as de termined an effort to stop bootleg gin in Union City as the means in his power extend. He has even gone be yond the ordinary processes to ap prehend the violators of the four mile law, furnishing of his own in dividual means the money to employ detectives, and the results of this work are well known. Bootleggi; is prevalent here and has always been so, notwithstanding the fact that every city administration has put forth extraordinary efforts to stamp it out and the courts of the county have done the same. But the ladies are acting on the offensive. They are enlisting every possible aid and means to carry on the work, and are moving with an on-gathering to wards the retreats of the enemy. This is not merely a crusade, but a determined and persistent campaign to rid Union City of bootlegging and will be continued with unrelenting vigil until Union City is cleansed of the dirty work. Mayor Reynolds was elected as an honorary member of the W. C. T. U. at this meeting. Stolen Meat. Thieves broke into an old smoke house on Sam T. Wade's new home place, southwest of Union City, last Monday night and carried away six joints of bacon and a lot of canned peaches and berries. The meat be longed to one of the men on the farm, and Tuesday Mr. Wade sent to Dyersburg for Mr. Simpson's bloodhounds, which were hurried over and put on the trail with suc cess. The smokehouse door was found open Tuesday morning and the meat gone. Sheriff Mathes and his deputies were soon on the job, assisted by the city officers, and on Wednesday four negroes were land ed in jail. Jim Cleek confessed and implicated others. Curly Crews, Will Crews and Van Byers were in the lot. Proof was produced on one of the Crews negroes, who tried to sell meat to J. C. Adams and Shug Wells. One of the negroes was trailed al most to the lodgings of Wells, where an effort was made to sell the meat. Jt was said that they tried to sell to John Trimble, but he denies this. The officers were assisted by Marshal John Adams and Enloe Chiles in the capture of the negroes. The trial was postponed until others were caught. Since the above seven negroes are .under arrest, and Trimble and oth ers have furnished evidence of the meat offered for sale. Baseball. Joe Cantlllon, with his club from Hickman, will be here March 25 to engage in a try out with the Train ing School team, which takes place At the Training School Park at 3:15. ' .;" Runaway. On Wednesday afternoon, after the party had come to town, Mrs. Judge Head and little grandson, Henry, Jr., Mrs." Geo. Eader driving, the horse, becoming frightened at a shaft accidently broken and hang down by her side, ran and upset the entire party in a heap by the road side in the vicinity of White's store on Harrison street. They were over in that part of town before starting home, and were found and assisted back to town. Dr. Hibbltts was called and looked after the injuries. He found Mrs. Head badly shaken and bruised and the little boy suffer ing with a fracture of the thigh bone. Mrs. Eader was not badly in jured. Mr. Henry Head was in town yesterday and said that his mother was suffering considerably but that be did not think she was dangerously hurt. The little boy has a fracture but it is not painful. We trust they will all be out again soon. Postmaster's Commission. G. W.

Mrs. Martha Frances Cloar, bet ter known as Aunt Patsy, died at home in Union City at 12:50 o'clock Tuesday morning, after a few weeks illness. Mrs. Cloar was a native of the county. She was born and reared and spent most of her life in the Third Civil District. She was a daughter of Marcus Glover, aged 72 years on October 7, 1914, and is sur vived by two brothers, J. L. Sr., and B. G. Glover. Mrs. Cloar was married 49 years ago in September to Mr. J. E. Cloar, and of the union there are nine chil dren. One died in infancy and the survivors are F.

In the Mayor's Court tbis week there have been sis cases of bootlegging, four Tuesday and two Wednesday, all fined $25 each, and fines have been secured. The Mayor is making arrests on evi dence shown by the register at the Couuty Clerk's office, and he is advised by Governor Eye, whom he visited in Nashville this week, that such evidence is sufficient if shown that the purchaser is buying in quantities. Along this line the W. C. T. U. has developed the fact that shipments by freight must be reg istered in the name of the purchaser in the County Clerk's office the same as express, and since the city has made an addition to its ordinances complying with these laws the officers are better prepared to reach the guilty parties and to convict them in court. Fine Present. Lieutenant Governor Wallace Mc Dowell, of Montana, presiding of ficer of the State Senate, was pre sented by the Senate recently of a diamond ring, two magnificent dia monds with a Montana sapphire in the center of the group.

On last Monday morning at the be ginning of a bright sunshiny day the dark angel death entered the home of Laiban Haislip and claimed for its own his beloved wife. Sallie was sick only a 'few days of pneumonia, but was better. Her death was due to heart failure. She was the eldest daughter of the late Samuel Er win and Elizabeth Aenew. She was born July 5, 1856, in Obion County six miles south of Ebenezer, and departed this life March 1, 1915, at the age of 59 vears. 7 months and 26 days. Sallie was married to Laiban Haislip, of Troy, in the fall of 1886. To this union five children were born, four of whom sur vive her as follows, besides her husband Mattie and Dee Haislip, Mrs. Boy Smith and Earl Haislip, who was at tending the State Normal in Memphis at the time of his mother's illness. She also leaves several stepchildren who will feel her loss deeply. A place has been made vacant that never can be filled. There is an empty chair and a voice so loved is hushed forevermore in the vale of sorrow and tears, for the spirit has returned to the one who gave it. We can say she lived a true Chris tian life. Never tired of working for her Master. Sallie scattered sunshine wherever she went, and to know her was to love her. No one knows how they will miss her now that she has left them, never to return. There is an endearing tenderness in the love of a mother to her children that transcends all affections of the heart. She will sacrifice every comfort to their convenience; she will surrender every pleasure to their enjoyment. How little do we appreciate mother's tenderness while living. How heedless are we in youth ot all ber anxieties and kindness. But when bhe is dead and gone, wheo the cares and coldness of the world come withering to our hearts, when we experience how hard it is to find true symathy. How few to love us for ourselves, bow few to befriend us in misfortune then we think of the mother we have lost. We thank God for such a life as this one was, her soul as pure and white as the clouds above has passed on, but her Christian influence is left with ui. Her life work , being done, God needed her in bis kingdom above. She bad spent a great portion of ber life fa CT nn ct3 R :YNOLD and around Hives where she .leaves many friends jto mourn ber loss. Besides her immediate family she leaves one sister, Mrs. T. A. Christian, of Halls, Tenn., and four brothers, Walter and Sam, of Kives, George, of Newbern, and Bob, of Idaho. Weep not dear husband, sons and daughters, brothers and sister, for she will know no more sad goodbyes, no more heart aches, no more tears to wipe away; but joy, peace and gladness will ever more be hers. She will now wait and watch for her loved ones here on earth as they strive day by day and mourn for ber. But cheer up, dear ones, and look what God has blessed and left you; only think and say, "Not my will, but thine be done," only strive that you may meet your loved ones in Heav en when your time comes, where no parting ever comes, where no chilling frost shall fall on flowers that sweetly bloom. All the saved shall meet and speak no more goodbyes. The very winds seem sighing for the loved one that has just gone. . A noble life from us has gone; At last the victory death has won. A gentle voice we loved is still; Our hearts with sorrow now are filled. That life transformed we wish to see When we reach Eternity. That voice some day we hope to hear. When we have banished earthly care. Our hearts may then be filled with joy When we can all our sins destroy With our earthly friends who have Heavenward gonel The funeral services were conducted last Tuesday at Ebenezer by Bro. Bur gess Cuoninghan and Raymond White. The body was laid to rest beneath most beautiful flowers. Everyone spoke of the kind and gen tle way Roy administered to her wants, always ready and willing to do anything to relieve ber sufferings. A Relative. Card of Thanks.
