An event, brilliant and beau
tiful in every detail, was the'
wedding at the Methodist church
Wednesday evening of Miss
uargart Ellis Johnson and Dr.~
Lawrence Roper, of Pickens, S.
The church decorations were
in white and pink and this idea
was artistically carried out.
The chancel rail was trans
formed into a hedge of lovely
green, studded with many lights
and on each side was a grace
ful arch of green filled with
numbers of lights. Suspended
just over the bridal couple was
a magnificent wedding bell of
white and pink roses.
The maid-of-honor, Miss
Mamie McRee, preceded the
bride, who entered with her
brother, Mr. Albert S. Johnson,
and was met at the alter by the
groom with his best man, Mr.
Lee A. Roper.
The ceremony was impressively
performed by Rev. J. F. Davis,
the bride's pastor.
Dr. and Mrs. Roper left at
nine, Wednesday evening, for
Pickens, S. C., where they will
make their future home.
The bride as Miss Maggie
Johnson, was universally loved.
With her bright, winning dis
position she was charming and
attractive in every way.
Dr. Roper is a graduate of the
Southern Dental College and is
establishing an excellent prac
tice in Pickens. He has num
bers of friends here, where he

Mrs. C. E. Robinson,
Mr. Editor: I will give you
a few dots from our burg.
Health of our community is
very g ood at this writing.
This section was visited on
the 30th ult., by a heavy rain,
hail and wind storm. The rain
washed the land considerably
and the hail (lid much damage
to the crops, and gardens.
Some say they saw hail stones
as large as dollars. The timber
was beaten up severely. Some
say the water streams were the
highest they have been in five
years. A narrow wind and rain
storm passed over this section on
the 9th of last October that was
the worst we ever knew. We
do not know where it commen
ced nor where it ende'd, but it
passed just above Hazel, crossed
over Big Pink Mountain and
right on over the Nine Times
road almost uprooting every tree
large and small, in its course.
Its width was about 100 yards
and we don't know how long it
We have always heard it said
that April 1st was "all Fools
day" but I think all the people
got fooled April the 6th. in going
to the show at Pickens, but we
do not believe the sbowmen were
to blame at all, somebody else is
liable to get fooled.
That jolly good fellow, Mr. M.

youngest son of Mr. John. A.
Gilstrap and a promising young
man, and the bride is the eldest
daughter of Rev. James. N. Pow

The happy young couple have
the best wishes of their many

Rev. W. J. Sheriff filled his
regular appointment at Antioch
Baptist church last second Sun
day, preaching a very impressive
and instructive sermon to a very
large and attentive congrega
tion. After sermon the Lord's
Supper was administered.
Rev. B. F. Murphree filled his
regular appointment at Holly
Springs Baptist church last 3rd
Sunday in spite of the rainy,
gloomy, weather. There was a
good crowd out to hear him, and
as every one knows that has
ever heard Rev. B. F. the con
gregation was treated to a grand
Mr. M. D. Cantrell received a
severe blow on the side of the
abdomen some time ago, from
the "kick" of plow handle, and
has been suffering a great deal
from it but is better now.
J. R. Meece, a saw mill man
had the misfortune to lose his
house and all of its contents by
fire, except two chairs, about a
month ago. It is supposed to
have caught from the stove.
He says his loss is about $500.
The second quarterly confer
ence of the North Pickens circuit
was to have been held at New
Friendship Methodist church last
Saturday and Sunday, but on
account of so much rain it was
a very small attendence. We
learned later that the Presiding
Elder was sick too.
