. Union Plays at Julian
With a number of the players
gone and others on the sick list, the
Union team managed to put up a
very good exhibition of the national
game last Sunday at Julian, when all
the ex-ofi'icio and honorary members
were pressed into service, regardless
of whether they had had any practice
this season or not. Attorney C. L.
Graves, manager of the team, was
one of those forced to forsake the
bench for a more active position and
it is reported that he made four home
runs, the last just before dark when
the car in which they were riding
broke down as they were nearing
Union and Charlie ran for home and
The game was a long drawn out
affair and when the score keeper
went home to supper the wind blew
the book he was using for a tally
sheet into an adjoining corn field and
it could not be found. From the best
account that can be gotten from the
players (and they seem unwilling to
tell the whole story) it seems that
Julian got a basket full of runs, and
Union couldn't put all of theirs in a
There will be another game next
week at Dunbar, which is supposed to
wind up the season, although if J.
Frost holds off they may play anoth
er one before ringing down the cur

Accidently Drinks Poison
Word was received here Monday
telling of the accidental drinking of
wood alcohol by Charles Woodward
at his home in Crofton, Nebraska.
Mr. Woodward had been taking med
icine for some ailment and during
the night when endeavoring to get
the bottle of medicine he made a mis
take and got the wood alcohol, a con
siderable amount of which he swal
lowed. For a time it was feared he
would not live, although his condi
tion is more promising now. His
brothers. Wes and William Wood
ward and sister, Mrs. Frank Boggs,
left Monday for Crofton to attend
the bedside of the unfortunate man.
It is hoped by the friends who know
him here that he will recover the ef
fects of his almost disastrous mistake.

en and all given opportunity to min
gle at will and become acquainted
with each other, the teachers, as
guests of honor, and the members of

At a meeting of the village board
of Union, a complaint having been
filed against the practice of coasting
on the side walks within the incor

the sense of the Village Board that
a request be made to parents and
guardians of children that they for
bid them from further use of the
side walks for coasting.

THE SWEETEST VOICE
The famous French writer. Fonte
nelle says that we find no sweeter
voice in all the world that that which
chants our praise. Among remedies
there are a few preparations which
can proudly say that they hear such
sweet voices every day. Triner's
American Elixir of Bitter Wine ha-;
belonged to them for thirty years,
because everybody who takes it must
confess that there is ntr'lietter rem
edy for stomach troubles, poor ap
oetite. constipation, headaches, etc.
On Aug. 7. 1920, Mrs, Katie Serafin
wrote us from Weldona, Colo., that:
"Triner's American Elixir of Bitter
Wine is one of the best medicines I
have ever tried. Not only myself,
but I have four children who simply
cannot stay without it. So please
send it as soon as possible." Your
druggist or dealer in medicines car
ries also other Triner's remedies in
stock for the ailments which are
now in season Triner's Liniment,
and Triner's Cough Sedative as well
as Triner's Antiputrin (an excellent
gargle for throat inflamation ) are
unexcelled. Joseph Triner Company,
