The Commercial, Union City, Tenn
FRIDAY, AUGUST 11, 1922. UNION C1TY T0 HAVE TOURISTS CAMP lions Club Offers a New Proposition to Union City. At a meeting of the Lions Club last Tuesday a tourists' camp adjacent to the limits of Union City was pro posed. This is a camp for the accom modation of motor tourists passing thru this part of the country, in which they may have a place to pitch their tents and have the ad vantage of shade, water, etc., and rest until they continue their Jour ney. Also that they may get their gas and supplies en route for the rest of the trip. These camps are very common in the West. Colorado Springs has one of the largest to be found any where, with all sorts of fine accom modations, in fact they are all over the West. They will be common ev erywhere and Union City is doing the right thing to furnish a camp. We have it from the committee that Mr. H. P. Moss has agreed to furnish the woodslot, vhich was a part of the fairgrounds on the southern borders of the city, for a term of years free, with, of course, provisions for main taining fences and repairs. The committee will be with you for a small subscription. It should be a privilege, to contribute to this work. It will no doubt bring some good people to Union City who may possibly have some important busi ness here, and who knows but what seme of them may become. Investors and citizens. Elected Constable. J. R. McCain, of Number Three, was elected last week as constable of Ms district. Really it was a compli ment to Mr. McCain from his friends. He was not a candidate, but his name was put forward by the citizens of that district and placed on the tick et. The race was made for him and out of regard for his character and .standing as an officer. Mr. McCaisi was formerly deputy sheriff of the county, and last year made the race for the nomination for sheriff with a ery large vote. He will no doubt bo a candidate next year for sheriff and it will take mighty tall timber to beat him. Barbecue and Ice Cream. Col. Bill Sowell, of Mount Zion, who is the high mogul, chief host and Prince William of that communi ty, came in this week for the pub licity literature for a big ice cream and barbecue to be given to-night, TViday, the 11th inst., at the Jordan High School for the benefit of the school. This is a progressive school and there will be lots of friends and visitors to participate in the affair. No doubt Union City will furnish a large delegation. Card of Thanks. We want to thank each and every one for their kindness during the sickness and death of our dear moth er and grandmother, and also for the beautiful floral offerings.
