This meeting bas con tinued for three weeks and has been one of the most successful ever held at the Baptist Church. Unfortunately satis factory arrangements could not be had to bring about the tent meeting that had been planned. When this could not be had the people of the Baptist Church and many of other denomina tions, together with some of no denom ination, asked the Baptist pastor, Rev. H. H. Drake, to conduct the meeting. This he did. It is always impossible to take stock absolutely as the result of a revival, but the visible results to date are as follows: Professions of faith, 22; baptisms, 13; approved for baptism, 7; received by letter and statement, 9; and besides this there are several more who have signified that they are going to unite shortly. Then there was a gen eral awakening among the saved peo ple of the town. We are constrained to believe that Union City is a better town in which to live since this meet ing. We believe that Christ has been magnified; the cross uplifted; the King dom advanced, and the cause generally strengthened. Death at Harris. Mr. and Mrs. J. F.

The negro is also reported to have received a "note Saturday evening warning him to leave Cayce and evidently took too much timn in getting away. The weapons used were shotguns The houses of both negroes were shot into, and the negroes left the next day. The Deering negro was the most severely injured, receiving several shot in the right leg. No nightrider arrests have yet been made. Hickman Courier. HELPLESS AS BABY Down in Mind Unable to Work, and What Helped Her. Summit Point. W. Va.

I began taking Cardui, the womar's tonic, and got relief from the very first dose. By the time I had taken 12 bot tles, my health was completely restored. 1 am now 48 years years old, but feel as good as I did when only 16. Cardui certainly saved me from losing my mind, and I feel it my duty to speak in its favor. I wish I had some power over poor, suffering women, and could make them know the good it would do them." If you suffer from any of the ailments peculiar to women, it will certainly be worth your while to give Cardui a trial. It has been heloine weak women for more than 50 years, and will help you, too.

I was born in Obion County, Tennessee, in 1871, Sept. 17, and well do 1 remember my school days when I lived near old Fairfield and my schoolmates scat tered, some are gone to rest and some are in Tennessee yet and some can tell that I have seen a lot of this old world. I have traveled from Washington, D. C, to Vancouver, B C, and now I must say I traveled 3,824 miles from Wichita, Kansas, to this place on a motorcycle. 1 came thru Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Min nesota, South Dakota into this coun try to the Canada line. I have seen a lot to tell the readers of The Com mercial. this is a much different country than Tennessee. There is lots of game here, besides this is a great farming country for wheat rye, oats, barley, flax and macorina wheat. Threshing is just now commencing: here, and we have had four inches of snow, the 23rd of September, but all the machines are busy now threshing. The people do not pay any attention to Sunday here when harvest time comes on. There is lots of game here such as prairie, chickens, ducks and quails and up in the mountains there are antilope deers, elks, bears and bobtail cats. I must say that this cold weather is making me wish for a few days of good weather. It snowed here yes terday, Oct. 6, and the ground trope last night and ice a good one-half -inch thick this morning. I have postponed my trip around the head of the Mississippi River that I had planned out, too cold for me on a motorcycle. I have ate prairie chick ens and light bread enough to make a foot log across the Mississippi at the broadest place. E. J. HAYNES. Goodrich, North Dakota, Oct. 7.
