FOR RAILROAD COMMISSiONER.
Editor .Aews and Herald:
The office of railroad commis
sioner is one of great responsi
bility andi it is highly important
that it be filled with the right
man. A railroad commissioner
should be possessed of a broad
and liberal mind, trained in busi
ess grooves, whetted and sharp
ened by friction with every day
business transactions. He should
be a man of sufficient moral
courage to enforce his views in
the interest of public safety as
well as public welfare, and at the
same time not ignore the just
interests of railroad corporations.
He should have had a measure
of success in the conduct of his
owl bu-iness before entering on
the heavy duties connected with
this office. A man who meets all
these requirements is Hon. Jno.
. Wlling, whose candidacy for
railroad commissioner we most
heartily endorse. Mr. Wolling
is nowv in the prime of life. He
is one of the county's largest and
most successful farmers. He is
a public-spirited man, as is
shown by his great interest in the
school of his community, the
session of which has often been
extended by his contributions.
He is deservingly popular in his
own community, having received
14 out of the 130 votes cast at
is home box in 1900. He is
also very popular in the county,
having twice headed the ticket
for the house of representatives.
Ten, too, Mr. Wolling has had
seven years' experience in prac
tical railroading, having been a
the capacity of a locomotive
In asking yott to support him,
we feel sure that wherever he
may be he will be found to be a
man of the highest type of Chris
tian character, whose roputation
is unsullied, whose ability is nu
questioned, and whose peculiar
fitness for the office he seeks is
recognized by many, many citi
zens of .
: Fairfeld County.
An Impressive flarriage Ceremony
Performed in the Presence of Many.
Piany Fi ied.s.
A most beautiful and impres
sive marriage ceremony was p< r
formed Wbdnesday evening iu
the Presbyterian church at 8.30
o'clock. The attendance was
probably the largest that ever
gathered in Winnsboro to witness
a similar *etent, so old yet ever
new and beautiful. The decora
tions were 'superb, .the spacious
pulpit being a solid wass of rarest
orchids and pot plants, which
silently ytt beautifully and elo
quently spoke of the grandeur
and solemnity of the occasion.
Promptly at the appointed hour
the organ's peals proclaimed the
arrival of the wedding party, and
Lohengren, that grand old march,
rendered yet grander by the touch
of such an Irt t as"Miss Annie
Aiken, filled the church w ith
luscious melody and concord of
sweetest sounds. The couples
entered in; the following order:
Mr. W. C. Boyd preceded the
attendants in the left aisle, and
opposite him in the right aisle
Miss Allie err, of Greenwood,
(once a resfent of Winnsboro).
Her native grace and beauty with
her calir demeanor made her an
ideal participant in such an event
-this cou le opened the gates
through which the remaining
attendants wer3 to usher the
bride. The couples first entering
were Mr. TI C. Davis ivith Miss
Kats Mellichanip down the right
aisle and Dr. Sami. Lindsay with
Miss Bessie Bookter down the
left, then Mr. L. E. Owens on the
right and Miss Bessie Lyles on
the left. Following came Mr.
J. W. Cathcart with Miss Mary
Matthews,. and Mr. E.-1.Han- -
ban with* Miss Bessie Quatt e
baum, all e ring the gates and
formin '-eircle ready to
recei .. m ;&ir. Azrthur
Mynrd 0 us and 'his fregal
bride Miss Ciara Louise Herron,
whose usual beauty was but
augmented by her sweet respon
sibility. They w.ere led to the
altar with characteristic ease and
grace by Mr. Jno. F. Davis as
best m'tn and Miss Elizabeth
Cureton as maid of honor, who
was typical of the name-an
honor to herself, bride and friends.
She was petit and blonde and
perfect in the role she assumed1.
After the ceremony, feelingly
expressed by their pastor, Dr.
D. E. JTordan, the bridal party
enjoyed a reception given at the
home of the groom. During the
evening the "prophetic" cake,
containing the ring and button,
was cut. The button, mildly
suggestive of bachelorhood, fell
to the lot of Mr. J. W. Cathcart,
and the ring, intimating an early
occurrence of a similar auspicious
occasion, was won by Mr. L. E.
After a delightful supper the
t~ime coursed swiftly by and too
soon the. hour of departure ar
rived. Thus ended the events of
a happy occasion. If the best
wishes of a -host of friends and
the manifestation of interest by
all, together with lovely weather
are auspicious omens, theni the
future of this youing couple will
be but a brilliant reflection of
their joyous past.
The News and Herald extends
its best* wishes to this happy

noticeable and commendable
thing about Winnsboro is that
she never does things by halves,
when she decides to do anything
at all. Especially is this true as
