ENLAR6EDQUARTERS New Shelving, Counters and Fixture and Bigger Business. H. B. Horner, the human dynamo of the grocery and dry goods trade in Union City, has completely re modeled his Cash Grocery and Dry Goods stores in Union City on Wash lneton avenue," and installed . new shelving, cabinet fixtures, etc. . " This Is one of the livest stores in Union City. Mr. Horner, one of the most resourceful business men we have, a few years ago opened a gro cery store to make better use of his buildings. From the opening this store has been growing until it en iovs a rural trade second to none anywhere, and an exceptionally lib eral city trade. Mr. Horner has been selling groceries principally in case and bulk lots and always at the very closest margin. In that way Union City, thru Mr. Horner, has gained a reputation for very low prices and has become a -much! larger grocery market as well as a bigger dry goods center. Thousands of dollars pass over his counters during the week and sometimes his trade reaches into very large sum3 during a single day. Mr. Horner is a business man from the ground up. He has worked hard to build up this business and he deserves all the success he has earned. In his new store doubtless this business will continue in the same liberal way, and the public will be pleased to enjoy the opportu nities afforded there. Oil! BUYS LAND FOR COMMISSIONERS DUMPING GROUND ELECT SUPERVISOR Makes New Electric Power Rates and Orders Repairs. Taking up the schedules fcr motor Dower, ordering street and school building improvements, and attend ing to many other details of muni cipal government, the Board of May or and Aldermen at the meeting last Tuesday night had not altogether an unimportant session.. Some time "ego an attempt was made to fix an electric power rate to accommodate those persons who de sired to avail themselves of the op portunity of installing an electric Caldwell, No. 3. The Board of Obion County High way Commissioners met yesterday morning at the City-Hall in Union City, according to the provisions of the Waddell read law recently en acted by the General Assembly and proceeded Select a County Super visor. The names of several candi dates were presented, resulting in the election of J. W. Buchanan, of Obicn. The Board is made up of the fol lowing members: Hugh Smith, No. 13; Joe Peeples, No. 16; T. P. Finch, No. 11; Walter Via, No. 9; A. E. Credit Called Curse. Pine Bluff, Ark., Feb. 1. Credit was described a3 the "curse of the South" and likened to the drug habit in an address to farmers and business men here to-day by George R. James, Memphis business man, urging the necessity of forcing reduction of cot ton acreage in the county this spring. range. The question was discussed and finally a rate of six cents per kilowatt hour was agreed upon. At the following meeting the matter was reconsidered and the new rate was rescinded. It was decided that as this rate was not for general use it was therefore unfair. So a general motor power rate of six cents per kilowatt hour for all purposes was agreed upon last Tuesday night and so ordered. This rate does net apply for the first 50 kilowatts but for all over that amount for the current month. All under that is charged at tie regular electric rates heretofore in effect. Fifty kilowatts at the old rate per kilowatt . hour amount to S5.20. So, to make it more easily understood, those persons who use as iruch as f5.20 rcrth of electric current per month are allowed the six cent rate only for all over that amount. This will give an opportunity to try out the electric range, vacuum cleaner, iron, sewing machine, clothes washer, or any other of the power machines, and if coal contin ues high another year electricty may be more generally used. Z. W. Corum, H. A. Bransford and G. C. Cloys were appointed to con stitute a park commission, to take charge of and make provisions for improving tho city parks. The Streets and Sidewalka Com mittee was instructed to order a street grader and a supply of gravel for repairing the streets. C. T. Lovelace was appointed co look after the work of repairs at the old city school building, having wood work painted, etc. The city adopted report of a spe cial comittee end ordered the pur chase of eight acres of land east of and adjoining East View Cemetery for a general dumping ground for garbage, etc. This is a matter that has needed attention for some time The city was practically without a place to dispose of its refuse, and draymen exacted most any price to haul it away. Now it will be a more satisfactory arrangement. Tho Board completed its organi zation and agreed upon stated meet ings on the fourth Monday in each month. The election of Mr. Buchanan un doubtedly pays him a very high hon or since there were a number of can- didates of exceptionally fine qualifi cations for this position. The honor however comes to a good man, spe cially equipped and qualified for this work. Mr. Buchanan Tias had years of practical experience in road work. He has not only been active in con struction but he has been interested in the general progress of p ublic highways, familiar with such mat ters, and will make this work a mat ter of personal pride as well as a duty to the citizens of the county.

The repeal of the anti-cigarette law means that the State and county will get revenue of which they have been deprived during the past few years. .It does not mean that there will be any greater sale of cigarettes than heretofore. Under another bill passed by the Legislature a severe penalty will be provided for those who sell cigarettes to minors. The disregard of the anti-cigarette law has added to the general disrespect for all law. Now that the baa is lifted, let U3 see that the saner clauses those affecting the sale to minors are enforced to the letter.
