Miss Wilson made the subject quite a bit more at tractive by her manner of presenting tho various angles of the work. She is a delightful talker and her way of presenting tho work is very suggestive and appealing. Quite a number of queries were made after the address, to which she responded graciously and satisfactorily. Mrs. O. H. Niles, president of the Parent-Teachers Association,- presid ed.

The banquet proper was a delight ful affair from a social ctandpoint The menu was specially prepared with fried chicken and asparagus, closing with icoa and pastries. Kev.

Tho war for and against screen pic tures, having its beginning now ev erywhere, especially In the Metropo lis, promises some good things.. There is no general effort anywhere to fight the Industry as an American amuse ment enterprise, but to check the growth of immoral pictures and to prevent the unscrupulous promoters from dominating the picture field. As it is now the spoken drama Is reduced until there is hardly any thing of merit to be seen outside the city of New York. Around that city -revolves tho dramatic world. There fore the screen play to the country at large is a dramatic and education al work, which affords abundant opportunities for recreation and pleasure. . How important It is then that the standards of filmilom be be ostab lished and recognized for their true value, and that picture managers and scenario artists be made to under stand that filth and froth will not be tolerated. In other worls, the qualifications for men of this charac -ter should embraco an admixture of moral conscienco p well as artistic talent. It is worth whilo to state that the local picture managers have been giving the Union City public some really good pictures pictures that appeal to the better impulses as well as the taste for strong dramatic works. Ode very notable instance of this kind was tho Heliotrope film Monday night at Jimmie's Playhouse In thi3 there were three very talented artists and some tense moments, all moving around a charming girl and a beautiful motive. Tho picturiza- tion was also fine. Then Mr. Cox gave us a first National last week with a northwest setting, some good strong points and characters, having to do with smuggling furs, righting of wrongs and respect for the law. Union City can be congratulated in a great measure upon the pictures shown here. FOB SALE. Two mules and farming imple ments. See G. B. White, at White's Furniture Store. 19-lt Fats and Leans.

Sessions were held behind closed doors in the First Methodist Church. Only one witness, the attorneys and the-com mittee members were permitted to remain. Habeas corpus proceedings filed in Dresden recently were a prelude to the church trial. These were for the custody of the young son of Rev. and Mrs. Ryan. The charges before the church trial board are not criminal, but ap pear to be a result of incompatibility, domestic quarrels and small, town gossip. Witnesses at the session included Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Owens, of Fulton, Mrs. R. H. Beadle and the Rev. R, H. Pigue. Among the witnesses will be Al Vowell, M. M. Vowell and Lu ther Vowell, brothers of Mrs. Ryan, The trial committee, appointed by Bishop Atkins, of North Carolina, is composed of the Rev. T. W. A. Baker, N. P. Prichard, J. T. Banks, C. D.

But one ballot was taken, the committee standing 11 for "guilty" and two for acquit tal."
