CASH GROCERY CO.
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.

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was rescinded.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.
