In thousands of households Black Draught is kept handy for Immediate use In time of need. Prompt treatment often Is half the battle, and will often prevent slight Ills from developing In to serious troubles. Its well-established merit, daring more than 70 years of successful one, should convince yon of the helpful effects obtainable by taking Black Draught for liver and stomach dis orders.

After Household Duties. V Mr. and Mrs. Pink Cloys, whose home is on North, Cheatham street, this city, have been married seventy one years next May. They are both hale and hearty, ard occupy their nice cottage all alone. Mr. Cloys does all the chores about the place him self, works the garden, which is large in size, and one of the best in the town, while Mrs. Cloys attends to all of the household duties, including the cooking and housework. Mr. Cloys is financially able to hire all the. help that both of them might need, but both of them prefer to look after the affairs of the home them selves. Mr. Cloys is a member of the Baptist Church, and Mrs. Cloys is a member of the Methodist Church. When the Rev. Gid Bransford seventy-one years ago made them man and wife, they moved to a little farm north of this place and lived there for a number of years, and then, having accumulated a fair share of this world's goods, they bought a house and lot here and moved to it. Six children have blessed the home, but all of them are married and in estab lished homes of their own. Mr. Cloys is now 93 years of age and hi3 wife is 88. Judging from their appearance at this time it looks like both might live for a number of yeara. This aged couple enjoys the good will and high esteem of all who know them. The sweets of a long and use ful life'have to the fullest extent been realized by them and while any of their children would be, delighted to have them come and make their home with them, they have always de clined, preferring to remain at houit,, where they have been so long.

What is the PACKING HOUSE worth to the citizens of Union City and' Obion County? It is a good question to con sider. If it has merit it should be known and appreciated. If there is no reason for its existence it should not be here. HERE ARE SOME OF THE REASONS THAT MAKE IT WORTH WHILE It is a necessary institution. It was the first real Packing House built in West Ten nessee. x . There is only one other now. It gives a market for live stock all the year round. Last year we sold $285,000,00 worth of products, an average of $916.00 every workingday. That's going . some for the small Packers. Since the president of this company began selling meat, on his own account in this town, more than twenty five years ago, Union City has never been without meat a single day. Is that worth anything to the citizens of this town? We have gone through zero blizzards, through hot and cold weather the ear round serving our customers. Is that worth anything to you? We give employment to a number of workmen. A let of them would have to move to other towns for work if it was not for the packing house. We are doing our bit in helping build up our town. Is that worth anything to Union City and Obion County? -i ... The value of any man 6t any institution to a communi ty is measured by the service rendered We arc doing our best to measure up to this standard. Sell your live stock to us. We pay the market value at ,all times. ' Help us to build one of the strongest business insti tutions in West Tennessee. Reynolds Packing Co.
