In the front drawing room, where Mrs. W. M. Warterfleld received with the guests of honor and Mrs. Nailling, pink carnations were used on the piano and mantel and the candles burning on each side of the vases gave a soft glow that added much to the pretty picture made by the receiving line and the guests as they entered, several at a time.

It cer tainly does the trick with the bugs, and for blight, I don't think Pyrox can be beaten." Such is the experience of Mr. E. R. Dissinger, Campbelltown, Pa., who ends his letter by saying "I certainly would notdo without Pyrox when growing potatoes." No Fruit or potato grower can af ford to overlook Pyrox. The fact that it serves two purposes is not a mere chance but the result of scien tifically uniting powerful insecticides and fungicides thus making the one application do the work of two. We shall be glad to send you the Pyrox book let, and can sup ply any quantity you want, in small crocks, kegs, or barrels. Oliver's leL Drug Store Dr. Luther Little. The Review Club of Union City take pleasure in announcing the fuel that Dr. Luther Little, pastor of the First Baptist Church, Jackson, Tenn., will deliver in Union City at the First Chris tian Church on the evening of June 4 his well known lecture, "The Eyes of the' World." Dr. Little comes under the auspices of the club. Thereiwill be no charge for admission, and his lecture will be addressed to our local interests. Dr. Little comes to Union City thru the recommendation of Mrs. W. F. Barry. He has recently entered the lecture field and his work has become very popular. He is said to have spoken recently to crowded houses, many having failed to secure admission. The following are some of the indorse ments of Dr. Little's work: It was my pleasure to hear some of the lectures of Dr. Luther Little this season and I heard hundreds of people express themselves, and I want to say one or two things that I gathered from this wonderful series of lectures. First of all, I want to say that he made good the title which he has well won, "the little man eloquent." Without any doubt, Dr. Little measured up to the standard of popular and high-salaried lecturers who have visited our city in former years. By a vote of the great audiences that heard him throughout the season the most popular lecture was "Abraham Lincoln." Nothing could swerve him from the call to preach the gospel, but it is a universal decision among his many friends in Jackson that if he would turn his attention to the plat form he would be counted among the best. I speak from inside information and unhesitatingly say that Dr. Little suc ceeded in his lecture work in Jackson this season. Respectfully, Skale B. Johnson, Jackson, Tenn. No greater preacher and orator in the West than Dr. Little. He is known all over America as the "Little Man Elo quent." To hear Little once is forever to be a Littleite. Los Angeles Press.

His lectures were always engaged far in advance, his audi ences the very best people, filling the houses always. The books will no doubt be most popular library works and much sought for.
