But No Reunion. j
I i i !
The first time for three score
years there will be no Old Settlers
reunion in Union. The committee
apnointed to look' after the -matter,
did not get the matter sufficient in
hand in time for the day et which
was for the last two days of this
week, and Union goes into history
with the lapsing of the Old Settler's
reunion. For twenty-nine years there
has not been a break in the annual
gathering of this historic organiza
tion, and many are the excellent
times which have been celebrated in
and near this city. It seems rather
too bad that there could not have
been found some way to have had
the reunion. Many of the citizens
were desirous of holding the reunion
but on account of the fear of some
that a very undesirable element
would be thrust into the society of
the city, it was considered best not
to have it. The element is that

Takes Outing with Her Class
Miss Oiia Clark, who is a teacher
of the small giris' Sunday school
class of the Baptist church, is mani
festing the proper spirit in her re
lations with the class, which she i.:
endeavoring to instruct in the way:
of life and its responsibilities. She
has made a success iu the matter of
conducting the class, and is ever on
I the alert to inaugurate some inno-
vat ion that will serve to increase
the interest of the scholars and is
meeting with abundant success. On
last Monday she took the class,
which consists of some very bright
voting ladies, with her to Omaha
and gave them a picnic at one of
amusement parks of the city
also showed them about the
which had many wonders for
little eyes of the fair young
ss. Those to accompany their

Clark. Ina LaRue. Zelma Cogdill,
Sara McQuinn and Vera Upton. The
crow1 returned home happy, though
tired, and are loud in their praise
of the kindness of their teacher.
Receives Painful Injury
Glen, the small son of Mr. and
.Mrs. Ross Niday. while playing
around where some of the horses
and mules were standing, was kick
ed by a mule, inflicting a severe
wound above the right eye and mak
ing it necessary to take several
stitches with the surgeon's needle
to dress the same, but the little son
stood the pain like the little hero
he is. and since the ordeal is ended
he ir, feeling much improved and has
hopes of being well again in a short
time. He will be careful of mules
hereafter, and especially when he is
,n the south side of them.
At her home northeast of this

had a most pleasant evening, and
one which will live in the memory
of all present.

Attend Neb. City Chautauqua
There were many Union people in
attendance at the Chau'.auqua at Ne
braska City last Sunday, and es
pecially at the Sunday night ses
sion, when the Rev. Titus Lowe
made his address. Rev. Lowe is a
very pleasant speaker and a philo
sophic reasoner. and is popular with
the people of this city as well as
eLewhere. Among those wlio at
tended the Sunday evening lecture
from this city and vicinity were
Rev. Morrison, pastor of the Metho
dist church and Mrs. Morrison; Rev.
J. P.. Taylor, pastor of the Baptist
church and his family; L. G. Todd
and family; Joseph Banning and
family; Mrs. May Wilson and son,
and their guests Mr. and Mrs. Ed
ward Miles and Mrs. John Miles, of
Crab Orchard; Mr. and Mrs. Hugh
Anderson and their son, Maurice;
Mrs. Elizabeth Easter and her daugh
ter, the Misses Laura and Elenor
Easter; Mr. and Mrs. J. R. Gerking:
Miss La von Drans; E. B. Chapman
and family; Mrs. Tillie Hargus and
W. H. Porter and family.
Grandma Graves, who is makiH.;
her home with Mr. and Mrs. J. D.
Graves, of Peru, is approaching her
99th birthday anniversary, and u
number of her children gathered at
the home last week for a visit with
her and a family reunion. Besides
J. I). Graves, of Peru, her son, C. M.,
of Yakima, Washington, has been
with her all summer. At the re
union, three other eons were here.
They were A. II.. of Murray; A. S.,
of Bellevue and C. L., of Union. The
combined ages of the mother and
five sons are 438 years, and adding
the ages of one other son and two
daughters, all living, the combined
ages aggregate 654 years. Not many
families, we presume, have a great
er number of years to their credit.
Mrs. Graves will be 99 next month.

A HEN just can't help wanting to lay eggs.
Nature made her that way. But she can't
lay unless she's treated right.
Give her a chance and she'll work for you winter
Hens like a good, warm, sunny, wind-tight house. Thoy
can't lay eggs if it takes all the feed you give them to keep
them warm. And there's a vast difference in the way
fertile eggs, laid under the right conditions, hatch out.
With a good poultry house you get earlier hatches and
more winter eggs the two things that make for big poultry
WJute Pine makes the best chicken house, because the
boaids stay where you put them without w.rping or twist

freedom from continual repairs. It's a real investment.

Union Trims Nehawka.
Under the inspiration of Roy
Togan, who is conducting the mar
ket and store in this city for
Thomas Cromwell, the lovers of the
base ball game got together and ac
cepted the challenge of the team at
Nehawka, and in the contest which
followed in the game which was
played on the Nehawka field, trim
med the Nehawkaites nicely. The
team at this place was hastily org
anized and notwithstanding the fact
they did not have an opportunity
to get much practice were able to
slip it over on the boys in our neigh
boring town nicely. The line-up
for the Union team was: Robert

John Peasley in his accounting
for his portion of the five scores
made a home run, and created a
great demonstration on the part of
the Union rooters, and consternation
to the Nehawka people.
'Hick' Davis, was the most popu
lar of players, and as he is credited
with a three bagger, he L? not at all
slow. There is to be a game at the
same place with the Nehawka team
next Sunday, and in this there is
looked to be a pretty spirited con
test. Many from this city and
neighborhood will attend the game.
Wheat About All In.
With the closing of the thresh
ing and marketing of wheat, there
will be considerable corn yet to be
marketed, there being some little
arriving already. The price is one
dollar and eight cents, where the
corn comes to the proper grade.

Use Your High
With farm lands selling at three hundred dollars
per acre and wheat bringing $2.07. and with corn fol
lowing closely, why have some of this valuable domain
loafing and not producing anything? With trees and
stumps covering the ground which could as well as not
be utilized for crops, Mr. Farmer, you are losing money.
