TEPRIBLYSWOLLEII Suffering Described As Torture Relieved by Black-Drangbt Rossville, Ga. Mrs. Kate Lee Able, ol (his place, writes: "My husband is an engineer, and once while lifting, he in lured himself with a piece of heavy ma chinery, across the abdomen, He was so sore he could not bear to press on himself at all, on chest or abdomen. He weighed 165 lbs., and fell off until he weighed 110 lbs., in two weeks. He became constipated and it looked Bke he would die. We had three different doctors, yet with 'all their medicinehis bowels failed to act He would turn up I ten-cent bottle of castor oil,, and drink it two or three days in succession. He did this yet without result We became desperate, ho suffered so. He was swol , ten terribly. He told me his suffering could only be described as torture. I sent and bought Thedford's Black Draught I made him take a big dose, and when it began to act he fainted, he was in such misery, but he got relief and began to mend at once. He gpt well, and we both feel he owes his life to Thedford's Black-Draught" .-, . Thedford's Black-Draught will help you to keep Ct, ready for the day's work. Try it! .

We are told by some of our lead ing merchants that there is a propa ganda afloat calculated to injure the merchants of Union City. It is spread probably by some malicious tongue who has a personal grudge to grati fy. In a general way the merchants here are charged with profiteering and the rumor has gone but that some of them have been arrested. Specifically it la said that they are selling shoes that cost $6 for $14, and other articles are quoted In something like the same ratio. Now we are reliably informed that there has been no arrests whatever made and no indications of an arrest. As to the selling of a pair of shoes that cost $6 for $14 there is absolutely no truth in the report, either as to cost price or to selling price. We have' not investigated the mat ter as to details, but we do know that shoes are selling in Union City on an equality in price with most all the towns we have visited. In the cities they are selling "even higher than in Union City. We have in vestigated the men's shoes, and find that the high-grade brands are sell ing a little higher in the principal stores of Memphis and Nashville than in Union City. Many other articles, of course, we know nothing about, but of the item of -men's shoes we havo as good a knowledge as the average man, and they are sold in Union City no high er, as a general rule, than they are sold in other towns in We3t Ten nessee or in any of the States. As far as we know they may be sold some cheaper than in many places, but we pledge our readers that they are sold n.o higher. In dealing with these rumors please be kind enough to give the matter a test before anyone is criti cised. ' s : CITY SCHOOL NEWS. The following article in substance went the rounds of the exchange some years ago as showing the value of an education in dollars and cents: A salary of $50 per month would be regarded as rather liberal as an average for 'a person with no educa tion whatever. This would amount to $600 a year, and counting an earning life as 40 years, the illiterate person would earn $24,000 in a life time. Now the person with a good high school education can reasonably ex pect an average salary of $100 per month. Taking the country over and averaging In the great number of persons whose salaries run;, up into the thousands and tens of thousands annually, we believe $100 a, month quite, low. i This salary, $1,20.0 a year for an earning life of 40 years, amounts to $48,000 as the lifo time earnings of the educated person. The difference, therefore, between the life time earnings of the edu cated and uneducated amounts to 424,000 in favor of the educated man fit woman. Now. what has this education that is worth $24,000 really coot? There are 20 school days in a month and 180 school days in a year. The aver age child, by attending school 175 days a year will get a good high school education in 12 years or 2,100 school days. If his education has cost him 2,100 days work and is worth $24,000, what has each day in school been, worth? Let the children figure it up and then decide whether it is good business to let them stay out of Bchool for any cause whatever except sickness. When tho boy has company or wants to go hunting or visiting, or has a chance to earn fifty cents or a dollar by staying out of school, let us ask ourselves: Is this good business? But someone may say, "O, my child is brighter than the average; he will earn more than any $100 a month." Then we say every day in school is worth more .to him than it is to the average child. Calculate what a day would be worth to , him if his education helped him to earn 200 a month or $1,000 a month. Besides, a money value Is not the only value. Most persons would agree that it is not even the biggest value. Now count up what our schools are worth when they are providing education for over 800 children. You will find their value running around $9,000 a day. They are costing about 100 a day. What business in town is bringing as great return? Calculate the . difference between what the teacher is producing and what she is getting. It will be right interesting as an exercise in num bers. O. E. McGEE, Sflpt.

The Obion Presbytery of the Cum berland Presbyterian Church met at Bell's Chapel, four miles west of Rutherford, Tenn,, in Gibson County, at 11 o'clock a. m. Tuesday, Septem ber 17, 1918. The opening sermon was. preached by Rev. T. A. Devore, of Fulton, Ky., the retiring modera tor.; After the opening oermon the Presbytery was called to order and the first item of business to be at tended to was the election of a mod erator, which resulted in the election of Elder J. W. Bujmey, of the Union City congregation. " After the noon hour was over and a most inviting luncheon was served on the campus to all present, the usual committees were appointed by the moderator and stated clerk, Rev. W. B. Cunninghr.m, with the addi tion of a "war work" committee with Dr. T. Ashburn, of Dyersburg, as chairman. There was a good attend ance of both ministers and -eldedrs. The greatest spirit of fraternity and good fellowship prevailed during the entire two days of the meeting. At the evening hour Or. Ashburn gave the Presbytery and visitors a most thrilling and heart touching sermon, such as the Doctor is able to give. Thirty minutes the next morning was given over to the U3ual devotion al exercises, led by Rev. E. Rueb in his usual happy and interesting man ner. The report of the vr.rious com mittees showed that a deep sense of earnestness pervaded Obion Presby tery underlying which was evident a greater awakening than ever be fore for the abiding presence of the Great I Am, and never before have we seen as much spirituality during the entire meeting than we saw on this occasion. At the 11 o'clock hour on the second day Rev. R. E. White preached a moat excellent sermon on the subject of "Regeneration," and it touched the hearts of all present. After the sermon Rev. J. A. Mcll wain administered the sacrament and gave to his hearers a soul-stirring exhortation, filled with a deep pathos that was the real Joy of all his hear ers. Revs. R. A. Keathley and J. A. Self, formerly of this Presbytery, came back to their first love and we were glad to have them. Rev. . W. A. Boone, now of Texas, was a most welcome visitor, as was also the" Rev. J. Will Howell, of Hopewell Presby tery, who preached there at, the urgent request ot the pcoplo of the community. One young man, Russell Bryant, who lives near Newborn, placed him Belf under tho care of tho presbytery as a candidato for the ministry. The people of thl3 community are noted for their hospitality and it was much in evidence during this meeting of Presbytery. ' . This body certainly en joyed to the fullest extent the great hospitality extended to it. Newbern was selected as tho next place of meeting, March, 1919. After all the business had been at tended to and a strong resolution of thanks to the church and people of the community for their generous and excellent manner of entertain ment and to iho choir for such beau tiful music, with a heart full of gratitude and a prayer In our hearts that God in his "infinite goodness and tender mercy may permit us all to meet in that beautiful beyond, where all is joy and peace and happiness forever more, wo said good-bye.
