The lions Club Keeps the Home Fires Burning. God roads In Obion Couut- Is the liberal spirit which moves the Liona Club, of Union City. Not only good roads in Obion County but In all the counties everywhere in Tennessee and elsewhere, especially In the Im mediate counties where the influence of the club is manifested. Two weeks ago the club called a meeting to be held at Kenton and It was said to be one of the warmest oc casions, speaking In terms of good roads, ever held for that purpose In the county. . Men were there from all up and down the line from Humboldt to Union City and some of the most stirring speeches were made. The occasion was enlivened by mu sic by the celebrated Dyer cornet band. The meeting was on the night of the 11th inst. The snake editor was absent, and hence a considerable amount of good roads publicity failed to appear. Besides the liberal at tendance of the people of Kenton, there were also representative good roads men from Humboldt, Trenton, Dyer, Rutherford and Union City. Addresses were made by Rev. R. A. Clark, H. M. Oliver, W. G. Reynolds, of Union City; Hon. Hillsman Tay lor, J. W. Nichols, of Trenton; J. L. Haguewood, of Rutherford; Editor Chas. Rook, of Humboldt, and others. These men discussed one of the livest issues of the period from all angles of the work, and they did so In the most logical:, practical, and sensible way. They were dealing with a sub ject of the vastest Importance to the people of the United States and they were immensely in earnest. Concluding a good roads organiza tion was formed by the people of Number Eight, with W. R. Wade as chairman. An organization was also perfected to look after the interests Obion and Gibson counties as to State and national aid on the proposed road from Union City to Jackson. Mr. Chas. Rook, of Humboldt, was elected president, and Mr. Henry" Oli ver, of Union City, secretary. Some months ago the County Court of Gibson County voted $500,000 in bonds for the purpose of building hard-surface roads and designated as road No. 1 the road from Hum boldt to Kenton. This road was not built because of scarcity of labor and building material, but will be built starting probably this spring. It is up to Obion County to bring this road on to Union City. Gibson and the other southern counties are watching us and are very anxious to see this road connect with the other great highways at Cairo and Jack son. s Could Obion County make a better investment? We think not. ' There are engineering difficulties, to be sure, but we are advised by practical road builders that they are easily overcome. Through the bottom it would cost very little more than else where, as the road should be swung on steel rails and thus avoid leveling and grading. A thru road from Kenton to Union City would shorten the present route by nearly one-half. We do not know if now is the op portune time to build hard-surface roads, but do know that Obion Coun ty should . wake up and bo ready when the time does come. We must not slumber and let these great high ways miss us by swinging around our borders, as an effort is now being made. If the poorer counties of Middle and Ea3t Tennessee can build hun dredo of miles of first-class roads, surely Obion, one of the richest of all counties, can build this short stretch. We believe it will be a mon ey making business for the county, since it will only furnish one-third of the money, and surely that one third will be spent where it will re main in the county. We must build good roads. A LION. w IYMM LAUGH Still the Buasiest Place in urn CITY W E HAVE NOW LOWERED our prices cheaper than ever. We must sell out our fall goods regardles of cost. We are selling them, aren't we? Yes, we are. As it is only a short while till Xmas and we have plenty of seasonable merchandise. We will not carry them over if we can possibly dispose of them. We believe in turning our stock and not holding for long profits, especially in times when the farmer can't dispose of his products at hardly any price. No, we do not care to make and we are willing to lose as well as you are. We reduced our goods so you can reach them with the low price of your cotton and corn. Death in Texas. I'm wortn $10.00. .
