Mr. Claude Allen, manager of the Water and Light Works, is happy to announce to the people of Union City that we have a new deep well, fur nishing the same kind of pure drink ing water that came from the old well, which ran almost dry in Decem ber. The new well, 541 feet deep, is only eight inches in diameter, yet the flow of water is greater than the old one. The old well, 538 feet deep and ten inches in diameter, had a capacity of 680 gallons an hour, while the new well flows 800 gallons an hour. The new well is now in use and the water is said to be equally, as fine as the old one. The workmen are now busy locating the trouble with the old well. If both can bo used Union City will have a large supply of the finest water in the world. Patronize a Home Industry. Call for our line of meats when you order from your merchant.

Two young men were fined for fighting and four for dis turbing the peace. One of the inci dents occured in a business house and the ' other at the Elks Home. In regard to the latter it seems that the four young men were not pleased because they had not been invited either to take part in the arrangements or to attend the dance and proceeded to enter uninvited and raise a rough house. They were fined $50 each. The young men also appeared before Esq. S. R. Bratton in the samo place and submitted their cases. RIVES. Mesdames M. C. Harris and W. E, Agnew visited in Union City Mon day. Mrs. W. H. Cravens and mother, Mrs. Childress, spent Friday and Saturday in Gardner. Mr. and Mrs. Pybas Rogers were end of the week guests of Mr. and Mrs. McCaw. Mrs. McCaw has the flu. H. A. Tune has the flu. Mr. Tune is our new road commissioner, ap pointed at recent session of County Couri. Mrs. Wilce Allen was a recent vis itor in the county seat shopping. Mrs. Clarence Bryson has returned home from Moffatt. Last week we failed to report the quota for Eastern Relief was largely over-subscribed. Mr. Carmi Davis returned Satur day from a business trip to points in Texas. Mr. and Mrs. John Head and Mr. and Mrs. Dave Byrns have this month passed the fiftieth year of their wedding anniversaries. These make the third couple, Mr. and Mrs. Holland Bittick being celebrants of several years past. A quiet wedding was consummated Sabbath afternoon in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Will Starnes, when they gave their daughter, Miss Hat tie Mai, in marriage to Mr. Wilson Petty, Rev. J. L. . Boyd performing the ceremony. The contracting parties are very popular thruout the county. Mr. and Mrs. Petty soon take up residence near Union City. The coils are fast drawing closer around the bootlegger that may catch not the man behind the gun, but the man behind the man, that sells the rum. Officer Bradley has a habit of meeting the befo' day and other morning trains. Oftentimes, woeful is the culprit and great is the haul of alcoholics from Cairo-ward. If Cairo should tumble into the Father of Waters, as we have heard people wish, its sodden, slimy, poi sonous wetneso would drown all the finny tribe, which in their decay would float to the top and kill all the feasting fowl of the air. Mr. Walter Warren found his roan horse in the Woodland vicinity Sat urday, but "What's his name and where's his hame" that stole the horse Friday night, for a cross-country ride, is yet unknown. f Edgar Shore has been out on a ten days business trip thru the South. Supt. B. A. Vaughn was in town Saturday. Mr. Allen Wade is expected home in the early part of February from the vicinity of Boston. Quite a few friends congregated under the parental roof of Mrs. Wil son Petty Tuesday afternoon to show er the bride. Articles, both useful and beautiful, thought to bo requi sites for a matron just taking up housekeeping were many. The hon oree, in her attractive, unassuming way, gratefully acknowledged favors of friendship, extending a cordial in vitation to call again in her new home. Mrs. Bob Mabry, of Union City, was a late visitor with her daughter, Mrs. Putnam Reeves. We are not militaristic and we don't want to be. Germany was; hence her downfall. With the ex ception of a larger navy, which we now have and will see further ex panded, we need take no apprehen sion for future wars. A few months of intensive training, backed by the wealth of our country, easily put to rout the forty years of military train ing of Germany. Just now there are questions of va3t more importance. It remains for the returning soldiers to decide by their vote as to the adoption universal military train ing, its length and scope. Their ap proval will probably go no further than brief stretches of camp life with its cordons of structures to aid the young man to properly develop into the years of his majority. - There are petitions and petitions. The one so largely signed the past week, protesting to the Legislature the repeal of the present statute law against selling cigarette papers and cigarettes, is indeed pertinent to child welfare. While adults addicted often claim no personal harm, all agree that the mind of a child is so depleted by the odious habit that an education is impossible. It was a mistaken kindness to send this kind of habit-forming dope to home camps and to the forces abroad. Returning soldiers will now and in years to come tell you so. Surgeons abroad have stated that the habit was a fearful detriment to the convales cence of wounded soldiers. Why should we tako this backward step? Who is it seeks to havo this law re pealed? Our Representatives should look to their laurels and nearly slaughter the Wolf in lamb's clothing. Parents, take warning and- write a deluge of protests by next mail that this excellent law be enforced and not repealed. Smmt ''11 . ' ,r JlCme.

THE SUPREMACY OF The AEOLIAN-VOCALION WHEN the phonograph was first invented, the possibilities it would ultimately divulge were little dreamed of. In reality, here at last was something for which humanity had waited the means iy which in time, music in all its many beautiful forms might be enjoyed by all. Slowly these possibilities have been revealed. The little me chanical novelty almost a toy rose to higher uses. The tai,k.ing machine became a MUSIC MACHINE. Today the phonograph has de- veloped to its ultimate goal. In the Aeolian-Vocalion and new Vocalion Record, phonograph perfection has been achieved No longer a machine of any kind, the phonograph ; takes its new position as a true musical in strument. You music-lover cannot know all the possibili ties of the phonograph, until you hear a Vocalion Record played upon the Aeolian Vocalion. Put this superb aria "Un . Bel Di" (One Fine Day) from Puccini's "Madame Butterfly" upon the instrument. Listen to Florence Easton's wonderful tones, voice the heart-rendering pathos the pitiful longing of the little deserted Japanese girl. You have never heard a record like this before; you have never - heard a record played like this before. Gone isl the stridency the , slight metallic quality hitherto inseparable from the phono graph. In their place is melody in its loveliest guise; a purer soprano voice one of the world's famous prima donnas clear, rich and sweet in all its living, breathing, natural beauty. 1 Features of the Vocalion TONE Due to its advanced and more scientific construction, the Vocalion pro duces richer, deeper, more beautiful and more natural tones than have hitherto been heard from the phonograph. TONE-CONTROL The Graduola the artistic and exclusive tone-controlling feature of the Vocalion, enables tjie performer to shade and color the music as he wills. It enables anyone to partici pate in the playing of the record, to give voice to his own musical ideas. APPEARANCE In both outline and finish, the Vocalion establishes anentirely new standard of beauty for the phono graph. The beautiful Period Styles, though inexpensive, are the most unusual and artistic phonographs ever displayed. MECHANICAL PERFECTION The Automatic Stop on the Vocalion is an example of the perfection in mechanical detail characterizing this instrument. Simple, direct and absolutely depend able, this device is the most satisfactory of its kind. UNIVERSAL TONE-ARM is a notable tribute to the skill and resource of the Aeolian staff. It provides the means by which every make of record can be played upon the Vocalion. With the record situ ation as it is today with so many dif ferent manufacturers making records this is the only way that all the great artists can be heard.

UNION CITY EVTDEN FOE UNION CITYOPLE The Statements of Union City Resi dents Are Surely More Reliable Than Those of Utter Strangers. Home testimony is real proof.

Here's a Union City mans state ment. ' And it's for Union City people's benefit. Such evidence is convincing. That's the kind of proof that backs Doan's Kidney Pills. L. C. Cfoys, contractor and build er, E. Cheatham St., says: "I had a pretty bad spell with my kidneys just after recovering from the grip. My .back pained most of the time, especially mornings.
