Edward OTIaberty, of Memphis, field manager, Salvation Army cam paign, was here this week to call on the county chairman of the work in Obion County, J. C. Burdick, Jr. Colonel OTlaherty has charge of the Home Service fund, and the work in the counties of West Tennessee is for the express purpose of providing funds for Tennessee alone, to be used by the branch of the army in Tennessee. Colonel O'Flaherty is very optimistic over the work and very proud of the success in the present campaign. Gib son County has contributed $3,000 to the fund and Madison $2,100. Union City alone has raised $350 and it re mains for the. work of extension to other parts of the county. Our quota is $2,000 and it should be a very easy matter. ' Of course we know that the demands have been heavy, but it must also be remembered that no church or religious work is more important than that of the Salvation Army. Probably no other religious organization is nvore generally and favorably recognized, and this organization depends entirely upon the public for its support. The support has been liberal and will continue to be, but our people should be interested. The Elks have done a big work for the Army and are active in the present campaign, lne committee oi ine young ladies here and the soldiers are to be praised for the work they have done in Union City. 1ST SIGH PEACE PAGTAS IT STANDS ROUMANIA WILL BE FORBIDDEN TO QUALIFY ACCEPTANCE OF THE TREATY. Mrs. W. M. Warterfield, Warthen Farm, this city, has been solicited by the Tennessee Capitol Association to aid inthe movement for the preserva tion of the State Capitol and improve ment of the surroundings. A great deal has been said in the General Assembly and by others all over the State con cerning the deterioration of the famous old building and its grounds, but it has been left to the ladies to act in this very important matter, and in view of this fact the ladies are being enlisted in the work of a booth for the Tennessee Cap itol Association at the State Fair. Mrs Frank W. Ring and Mrs. S. S. Crockett have addressed a letter to Mrs. Warter field and Mrs. Warterfield, we under stand, has kindly consented to aid in the work. The Commercial knows that it would be not merely a matter of State pride but a matter of pure econ omy to preserve and take care of the Capitol building, and a very gross and expensive mistake if it were not done.

"(' Note From' German Considered Evas- - Ive, find It May Be Decided to Enter Farther Into That Country. Paris. The supreme council of the peace conference informed Roumania he must sign the peace treaty with Austria without reservation or abstain altogether from signing. The Roumanian peace delegation has not yet reached a decision in the mat ter. The Roumanian delegation has Sent a note to, the peace conference declar ing that its intention was to sign the Austrian treaty with reservations. The upreme council took the Roumanian note under consideration. It appears unlikely such a signature will be per mitted. Premier Clemenceau presided at the council meeting, which also discussed the German reply to the allied demand for suppression of article 61 of the German constitution, providing for Austrian representation in the German parliament. The discussion of this subject was not completed. While the council probably will spend several days on the reply to te German note before completing it, it is considered certain that the answer will be extremely firm in tone, taking the position that Germany is violating the treaty before it becomes effective, thereby rendering it impossible for the allies to ratify it. Considerable differences of opinion are known to have existed among the members of the supreme council re garding the action to be taken con cerning the German note, some mem bers favoring the ignoring by the allied comunication on the ground that the reply was evasive,, and proceeding further into Germany should the Ger mans fail to indicate a willingness to alter their constitution.

The tractors that came up to their rated horse poper or went over the rating' include the Parrett, Wellington, Waterloo Boy, Wallis, International, Emerson Brantingbam, Moline and Hart-Parr. The last performed particularly well the testa At Fasfnria nrhora it onpnTintopufl Mo.l aahMah. rru .3 . - (iuw.v uuuuvv.u iitcat buuuuiuua. l iih ivimninmRrt registered 8220 lb. pull on the Hart-Parr here, and the machine was traveling at the ratelof 271 ft. per minute. This gives 26.50 hp. on the drawbar, while the machine is given a rating ordinarily of 15 hp. Also it is interesting to note that during this test theHart-Parr was pulling three 14-in. bottoms to a depth of 10.25 in. Taking the same machine under poor conditions, as at Middletown, we find it came very near to its rating, the figure being 14.77, with the plows going down 8.08 in. The figures just mentioned and those iq the preceding paragraph are taken from the maximum test. The figures on this job in the normal tests are but slightly below. Another tractor that went over its rating by a big margin was the- Moline-' Universal, not only where the conditions were good but where they were decid edly poor. Ordinarily the Moline is rated at 9 hn.. but the averace hnrspnnuipr of the two tests gives 16.08 bp. If consistency is of any value in a tractor test, then the Parrett deserves favorable mention. Of course, the machine, operated under e-ood or fair Ann. ditions, but even so, never did it fall below its rated drawbar horsepower of 12 hp. Its average horsepower rating for the twp tests, under normal conditions,, was 12.68. Its lowest figure was 12.25, and the highest 13.11. The Parrett also has a plowing speed ordinarily given as 2 3-8 m.n.h. In thn teata th plowing speeds were as follows: 2.27, 2.32, 2.73, and 2.69 m.p.b. The heaviest machine tested out was the 15-30 Aultman-Taylor, which weighed 7800 lbs., while the lightest job represented was the Fordsnn with 27no lbs. The Fordson in its tests came very close to its rated drawbar horsennwpr of 10 bp., the exact average being 9.84 hp. UNION CITY GARAGE Agents for Obion, Weakley and Dyer Counties ' UNION CITY, TENN.
