of persons have carried Travelers Cheques to every
nook and cranny of the earth.
Inexpeiienced travelers as well as veteran globe trot
ters have found this form of self-identifying travel
funds essential to their comfort.
When you buy Travelers Cheques at this bank you
convert your travel money into a form of currency
which is ready negotiable anywhere, and yet which
can be spent by no one but you.
Travelers Cheques are popular with tourists because
they positively safeguard travel funds.
They are popular with hotels and railroad and steam
ship companies because they are not alluring loot to
thieves and because they eliminate embarrassment
and hazards incidental to cashing personal checks.
We regard the sale of this international currency as
one of the most important phases of our complete

W. H. DuBODS,
Stop! Look and Paint!
Have you examined your buildings recently? Do
they need paint? If so, and you are waiting for lower
prices, you are only adding expense later on. The
extra paint required for the same job will more than
offset any decline that might come, as paint prices are
very reasonable at present.
Buildings allowed to go unpainted naturally de
terioate very rapidly. Those rusty streaks down the
sides are from nails, and as nails rust the building be

An Interesting Contest.
Last Sunday a pick-up ball team
from Union, composed of some pretty
good players not included in the first
team line-up went to Sciota for a
game with the Sciota Cubs" and
there met defeat in a one-sided
game, the score of which was 20 to
2 not quite Mr. Bryan's famous
silver ratio, but nearly as bad.
At the conclusion of the game, a
lady who was a supporter of the
Sciota team, clapped her hands and
in doing so excited the feelings of a
supporter of the Union team, who
asked that the former desist from
clapping her hands in the latter's
face. Not heeding the admonition
that "A soft answer turneth away
wrath, but grevious words stir up
anger," the Sciota fannette let fly the
grevious words and in the course of

Many Attend Annual Meeting
Many of the local Masons and
their wives and families attended the
annual meeting of the Masonic lodge
at Nehawka which includos within
its jurisdiction those members of the
fraternity residing in Union. The
occasion is one that has been observ
ed for many years and is always pro
ductive of a royal good time. A de
lightful program was followed by a
feed and after that a social hour.
Those present from Union and vi
cinity were Messrs and Mesdames W.

Union Wins from Nehawka.
Last Sunday with a good array of
players on either side, a game was
staged between Nehawka and Union,
in which the latter won. The game
was played on the local grounds, and
the score was Union S, and Nehawka
7. One man of Union and a base
ball fan at that, said there were
1,000 errors including those of both
sides. We do not vouch for this, but
only give it as it came to us. How
ever, the game was a good one, and
enjoyed by a large number, of very
enthusiastic boosters for the national
game. Those to play on the team
from Nehawka were Kimblon, center;
Rutledge, right; P. Johnson, 1st; T.
Mason, 2nd; F. Miller, short; Red
man, catch; Gritlin, pitch; White-
man, right, and A. Johnson, 3rd. The
Union team was made up as follows:
Davis, center; B. Wolfe, short; Earl
Wolfe, 3rd; C. Hathaway, 1st; Clark,
right; Clarence, catch; Eaton, left;
Hoback, pitch; Anderson, 2nd.
A Pleasant Fishing Party
Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Yowell of
Dennison, la., are spending their va
cation at the home of Mrs. Yowell's
father, Mr. W. L. Hoback. On last
aSturday a company of relatives and
friends met by invitations on the
hanks of the Weeping Water Creek
for a good time. The afternoon was
very pleasantly spent in fishing and
otherwise enjoying the outing. At
G:30 the company, who had gained
a sure-enough appetite, surrounded a
supper which the ladies of the party
had spread on the green sward. The
repast consisted of chicken and meats
of many kinds, pies, cakes, tarts, sal
ads, pickles and fruit. Those to en
joy the occasion were: Mr. and Mrs.
A. W. Yowell, guests of honor. Rev.
and Mrs. W. A. Taylor. Mr. and Mrs.
Charles Hemphill. Edward Selarye
and family, Charles Hoback and fam
ily. Gorge Hemphill and family, R.
M. Taylor and family, John Hoback
and family, Alda Taylor, Wni. Hicks,
Wm. Hoback, Eliza Taylor, Roy Boll
man and Hattie and Lelia Hoback.
Two of the party were delegated,
probably self-appointed, to cook the
wieners, and when they had complet
ed the task, promptly marched away
with the roast and another commit
tee had to be appointed to go and
negotiate with the cooks for a por
tion of the meats.

THE MOSAIC OF LIFE
"You and I are mosaic workers,"
says Forbes. "Life can be likened
to a mosaic. Each particle is small,
but whether the whole mosaic is a
masterpiece or a hideous monstrosity
depends upon whether its builder
chose each particle wisely or un
wisely." Remedies are also mosaics.
If the ingredients were chosen wise
ly, the whole is a masterpiece like
Triner's Bitter Wine. If the ingre
dients were chosen unwisely, the
whole is a monstrosity like many
imitations of the famous Triner's
remedy. The perfection of Triner's
Bitter Wine has been achieved after
many years of careful studies, in
numerable tests and painstaking ex
periments. The ingredients (cas
eara segrada and other bitter herbs
and roots) are not only chosen wise
1, but their quality is also constantly
of the highest class. Everybody who
surfers from gasses in the intestines,
constipation, poor appetite, head
aches, etc., may take Triner's Bitter
Wine with full confidence. Your
druggist or dealer in medicines is
well stocked with Triner's remedies.
