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" .-, .

Merchants of Union City are Sub-
jected to Unjust Criticism.
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 :
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
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
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.

Obion Presbytery.
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
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
