J. Wade Receives Largest Amount . . in Single Check. Already famous for its livestock Interests," Obion County Is making new records this fall in the market. The largest single check ever issued to one man in the St. Louis market, so the Live Stock Reporter says, was paid last week to B. J. Wade, of Rives. This was for ?72,417.85. un ly a few weeks before, W. P. Nash, in the same market, had received a check for over $ 36,000, and numer- Pickard, J. C. McRee and others tor k- large amounts. ' . Mr. Wade made a shipment of 22 , cars of hogs, 1,654 hogs in all, which were sold at the prevailing market prices, most of them bringing 20.35 cents gross. The total price of the "v shipment was $73,982.04, less ex- pense of handling. The Live Stock Reporter adds that this shows the South to be a hog market and that the South can and does produce hogs. Mr. Wade began a few years ago, after a shortage of crops for two or three years, to experiment with live stock. He was stimulated in this by the work of the county agent, Mr. McAmis, and the commercial agen cies of this part of the State. The first year proved a good e and the business Increased until lih present immense livestock industry, which is the growth of his efforts in this di rection. Mr. Wade now owns 1,500 or more acres of fine land in the county, and this land is enriched with cover crops and livestock grazing. He, however, is not the pioneer Mr. Nash, of this place, is one of the first. He has been handling live stock for a number of years, and is probably one of the best posted and most successful livestock men in the county. ' Then there are Bryan Pickard, this city, J. C. McRee, Wade Wiley, and others who are making big money and doing big things for the county as well as themselves, Bryan & Pickard are principally dealers. They are both farmers and feed and graze quite a lot of .stock, but their largest business is buying and shipping. Mr. Nash does both As an item of interest we have gathered that Bryan & Pickard's shipments alone from Union City since the 7th of September aggre gate 32 cars, about 28 cars of hogs, . two of sheep and two cars mixed hogs and cattle. There were five more cars shipped from Union City during that time. Two were shipped by Grady Palmer, one by B. T. Phe bus, one by J. M. Phebus, and one by Wade Wiley. Included in the Bryan & Pickard shipments were about seven cars of hogs bought of J. C. McRee from the farm near the city. These hogs were fed by Mr. McRee during the summer months. The Bryan & Pickard shipments also include almost, if not quite the same number, an equal number of . cars altogether from other shipping points in the county and over the county lines. . WINTER LYCEUM COURSE FOR THE LOCAL RED CROSS By Br. W. M. Turner, Chairman County Bed Cross Fund. Union City is to have a lyceum course this winter at Reynolds Thea tre, a special course featuring war lectures, as well as modern lyceum work. There will be five numbers, all the very best, and among these will be popular Brooks Fletcher, who has delighted Union City audiences a number of times. This fine course of attractions is underwritten by Dr. W. M. Turner for the benefit of the Obion County Red Cross, and the season tickets will be $2.10, includ ing war tax, for sale at Oliver s, NilesY Burchard's and Dietzel's. Remember, the entire net pro ceeds are to be turned over to the Red Cross, and Dr. Turner is taking the trouble both to give us a treat of literary and musical works as well as to provide a way to finance the Red Cross work here. It is Indeed a commendable enter prise and should have the support and patronage of every citizen here or nearby. Let the sale fill the house, and then some. Tickets can now be had at above locations. Trotzky and Lenine have played the part of Judas with the Russian people. Proof that they had sold out their country to the Germans is shown in diplomatic papers made public by the Committee on Public Information. All the scheming of the Berlin Intriguers, aided by the pseudo -Socialists, forms another link in the chain of German duplicity Russia was exploited thru the ma chinations of the band of traitorous Russians, and at the same time Ger many double-crossed the Bolsheviki In the seizure of the Ukraine. REGISTRATION IN OBION COUNTYJENN. Total of 3,175 Names Recorded by , Local Board. Last Thursday in Union City was a holiday and a day of patriotic ob servances. Company K, the home guard, drilled and marched thru the streets to the music of the Union City Concert Band, a new organiza tion in Union City and one of the best we have ever had here. The line drew up at the new flag pole grounds near the union passenger station, and there was heard by Dr. J. B. Adkerson one of the finest ora tions ever delivered on any patriotic occasion. Every head was bared un der the stars and stripes and every voice was lifted in the national hymn, "America." It was indeed one of the most glorious days in Union City. Every business house was closed and every business man laid down his business cares to partici pate in the work. The office of the Local Board was the only business place and the busi ness of the board on that day was the greatest perhaps ever to be known here in military affairs. A total of 3,175 names from the ages of lfT to 45 and'up to the forty-sixth birthday were enrolled. Threef these were naturalized citizens and one a non-declarent alien. ' There were 2,794 whites and 381 negroes. The number by ages was as follows: 18 years, 289; 19, 191; 20, 206; 21, 19; 22, 1; 23, 1; 24, 1; 26, 1; 28, l; 31, 3; 32, 100; 33, 210; 34, 215; 35, 203; 36, 179; 37, 200; 38, 203; 39, 181; 40, 163; 41, 168; 42, 160; 43, 166; 44, 144; 45, 170. The St. Mihiel salient has been wiped out by the Americans and thousands of prisoners taken. All objectives have been reached and Americans now are on the German border line. Gen. Pershing announces that 20,000 prisoners have been cap tured. During the attack American planes bombarded the German lines and dropped bombs on German towns.
