This remarkable dyspepsia rem edy will relieve the worst case of indi gestion, headache, dizziness, or the gen eral played-out condition that afflicts every one suffering with stomach trou ble. Mi-o-na does not simply relieve, it aims to cure. Oliver's Red Cross Drug Store can tell you of many well known people in this city whom this remedy has restored to health, often after they have tried many other methods of treatment with little or no benefit. No other dyspepsia remedy has made so large a percentage of cures as Mi-o-na.

The best kind of advertising is the praise of a pleased customer, and there are hundreds in Union City to-day prais ing Mi-o-na because it does what it is advertised to do.

RIVER NEWS IMPROVING FALLING AT MEMPHIS Mississippi River is Falling and Con ditions are Much Improved. Hickman. Ky., Feb. S. With a fall of seven inches in the Mississippi River yesterday and contiuned fall ing to-day, conditions are rapidly improving. Plenty of provisions for several days are on hand, while ne cessary funds are at hand for an emergency. All the levees continue to hold, and little apprehension is felt in that direction.

The river had fallen 12 inches up till this morning. OUTLOOK BETTER. Hickman, Ky., Feb. 9 With the river falling now, the outlook is very favorable, all the government levees thruout this section having held. The Reelfoot levee below Hickman running to Tiptonville, is in the best shape ever known, and the Medley levee, on the Missouri shore across from here, extending some 15 miles, has held all along. The Medley levee this year will be extended several miles, or to the high ground above New Madrid, Mo., and will protect one of the .finest agricultural sections in the valley. This extension of levee will be built by machinery instead of mules and scrapers as in the old way, this be ing a new experiment in this lo cality, the machinery already being on the ground. FLOOD NEWS AT A GLANCE. Cold weather in the Upper Missis sippi and Ohio Valleys yesterday held back rains from lowering clouds and thereby lessened the danger of greater flood. The Ohio continues to fall at Cairo. The Mississippi is falling rapidly at St. Louis and is falling al so at Cape Girardeau and New Mad rid, Mo. The crest yesterday reach ed Cottonwood Point, Mo. Below Osceola, Ark., the river is rising. If the stationary stage at Osceola, re ported last night, be true, the river here should hardly go above 44, and it should come to a stand to-night. At Memphis the stage was 43.2 ft. at 4 p. m. The rise here is expected by the local bureau to continue for three days, when a stage of 44.5 feet will be attained. The rise at Helena will continue . until the first of next week, when the stage will be approximately 54 feet.
