A Pretty Maiden Prerented
from Flying with Her
False Hair and Blasted Hopes.
'Twas midnight io Memphis. The
eity was wrapped in fog and slumber, and
the only sign of life was a tardy lover
kissing his girl good nitfltt at her doori
Jnst m he sound 0f the departing
lover's iootsteps had died away in the
distanse a carriage, drawn by a pair of
Mack horses, dashed around the corner.
Halting in front of a pretty cottage, a
young man sprang out, and, whispering
something to the driver, the latter drove
rapidly away, but halted within hailing
Uttering a low wWstle, the young man
dodged Trh!nd a door-frame and waited.
Presently there was the usual scratching
sound that accompanies the raising of a
window. Upon hearing the sound, the
young man left the friendly shelter of
the doorway and repeated the whistle,
this time more softly.
"Are you ready?" he whispered, as a
female head ibsucd from ia second-story
"yes," was the 'soft reply that floated
down from above.
"Are you sure your father and mother
"Yes; they went to bed over two hours
"Then sling out the rope ladder; bo
quick about it; I have a earriage and a
fast pair of horses a short distance away."
The girl's head disappeared. When it
was poked out again it was evident that
its owner was in great distress.
"Frank," she whispered, "diar Frank,
you will have to postpone our elopement "
"Postpone it? Great Scott! Why?"
"Hecause," she whimpe.r5, "because
I can t hod either my back hair or my
bustle, ana you know I couldn't think of
elopmg without them-.".,
' Confound the lu'ck," angrily iitfered
the young man. "Confound it, Mary,
you must c'onie. I've ordered tho wed
ding suit and a new overcoat expressed
to me from the MisSt Clothing Parlors,
2C2 Second street, and they look so well
and fit so well that I wouldn't miss them
for $100. although they didn't cost me
half that sum. I tell you, Mary, if you
could induce your f ather to buy his cloth
ing at the Misfit Clothing Parlors, 2G2
Second street, the great bargains he
would get there would put him in such a
good h umor that he would consent to our
marriage. Yes, I'll bet he would even
place his hands over our heads and say,
God bless you, my children.' "

Orleans sad a Leading- Mem
Brcepiion at the Eesldence'of the Bride's
Father Brilliant Scelai Eteht
The residence of Mr. W. D. Bethell,
corner Of Linden and Wellington streete,
was last night the scene of a social event
of unusual importance in fact, it may
fairly be charscteri.ed as the social event
of the season, because it will fwaU In de
priving Memphis f one ot her brightest
social ornaments in the person of Miss
Bessie Bethell, who, at 6:30 o'clock last
evnlnJ!. wan united in wedlock to Dr.
John JTcrsier of New Orleans. In eompll-
with the announcement that the
wedding ceremony would take place at 6
o'clock, these Who had been invited to as
s:at at the nuptials made haste to be on
hand before the appointed hottr, and dur
ing the half hour preceding the time liked
for the ceremony carriage after carriage
rolled up before tbe door of Mr. Bethell 'a
palatial mansion, depositing now a brides
maid resplendent in White siik, then a
stalwart friend o! ttie bridegroom in full
evening dress, and later on scares of cher
ished friends of the family.
The spacious drawing-roc m on tbeWell
ington street side wis et apart ior the
performance nf tt!6 nuptial Ceremony and
was Bloat beautifully arranged for the pur
pose. The Choicest treasures ot the con
servatory Were arranged along the length
of the apartment, and suspended from the
ceilirg hung an umbrella-shaped H3ral
canopy, farmed of white rosea and lilies,
while poised in the air above it were two
white doves, spotless emblems of puiity
and peace. A broad white ribbon stretched
at a distance of three feet from the floor
on either side formed a t-ilken barrier, in
side of which the bridal party were to
stand. Two footstools covered with white
silk were placed conveniently near the
floral canopy, and af erward served the
bride and groom to kneel upon. At6:S0
p.m., to the strains cf Mendalsrsohri's
"Wedding March," played delightfully by
Arnold's band, the bridal party filed into
the silken enclosure heretofore described,
in the following order:
Miss Annie Longand Mr. Sloo of New Orleans.
Miss Maud Long and Mr. Wm. Sneed.
Miss Loui;e bnecd and Ir. Fred Miles of New
Miss Pointer and Mr. John Parker of N.w Or
leans. Miss Le Sas'ir of New Orleans and Mr. Bill-
nns of NeHl Orleans. .
- A.iss .jsteve of Columbia, Tenn., and Afr. Run
dlphof New Orleans.
Arrived in the enclosure the couples
separated, the gent emen standing in line
on one side sni the ladies cn the other,
forming living aisle clown which the
bride and groom presently passed, fol
lowed by Mr. W. D. Bethell, the bride's
lather, and Mr. Ilaynes of New Orleans,
the groom's best man. Awaiting them
under the floral canopy stocd the Rev. Dr.
Becket tof Columbia, Tenn., Miss Bethell's
favorite teacher, under whose pastorai
guidance she has passed many of the hap
piest aays ot ner youth, and who came at
her urgent request to preeide at her mar
riage ceremony, ur. .Beckett is a gentle
man well advanced in years, whose once
jet black hair is plentifully streaked with
gray, tie seemed somewhat touched by
the associations called up bv his last night s
surroundings, and delivered the marriage
serf ice in such feeling tones that
many of those closely attached to the fam
ily, who stoed near by, were moved to
tears. Tbe groom. Dr. John forster, is a
tall, good-lookinftfjrlendef yonng man,
apparently abont twenty-seven years of
age, with a light blonde. mustache, and a
general look of keen intelligence that at
tracts inctant observation. The bride,
Miss Befsie B 'thel', is a 1 veiy brunetta
of graceful form ax.d shapely figure, who
has long been an acknowledged belle.
She wore last ntaht a dress of white satin
en train, trimmed with point lace, tulle
veil and o.ange fljwers, and as she stood
before her venerable tutor and received
from his lips his solemn benediction she
presented a picture of loveliness that any
man might be proud, to call his own
The ladies and gentlemen who compo. ed
the bridal partv formel a notable back'
ground to tbe picture, the ladies seem
ing to have beeu selected with
especial view to their personal beauty. It
is safe to say that a brighter galaxy of
beauty never sutronnded a bride. Among
the ladies and gentlemen present were the

THE IRON MOUNTAIN
Making ArrangemeaUto Build a Branch
Into Memphis Delegation
In the Cit
Probabi. Looking for Terminal Facul
ties Other Prominent Railroaders
The rumor which gained currency some
weeks ago that tbe St Louis and Iron
Mountain railroad contemplated building
branch into Memphis from a point abnut
Hoxie was partly c mfirmed yesterday by
the arrival in the city of First Vice-Presi
dent vvm. Mono, his secretary, Mr. Ben
ton Q'lick, and Superintendent H. G.
Flemming, of that company. It was as
serted rs a ic.fi. by those who ought to
know that it had been decided, positively.
to build the branch at oice, and that the
iblect of their v e.t was to arrange for
terminal facilities. Mr. Hoxie was seen at
his hotel by a representative cf the Ap
peal, to whom he said his visit was purely
a friendly one. He had not seen tbe city
or twenty years and felt some desire to
know if it had changed in that time.
When asked if it was true that it had been
decided to build a line into Memrjhia. he
smiled, bnt declined to discuss tbe
matter. It ia a fact, however, that
Mr. Hoie and his Eciets,ryi Mr. tliick,
were both anxious to nud out all they
could about the attitude of Memphis
toward the railroads, the trade and growth
cf the city, its popu'ation and its general
prcspecta. The road, if built, would give
to Memphis, which is properly entitled to
t, all tbe cotton trade of Southern Arkan
sas- and Texas points, now absorbed,
through the Iron Mountain feeder, by St.
Louis. That city, which is not in the cot
ton belt and is nut entitled to handle a
single bala of cotton, would lose what
Memphis would gain. The road wonld
benefit the ci'y from the first, as its trade
is already built up. It would be one of
the most important feeders we could have.

In a recent issue the Aberdeen Examiner
rayei Without disparagement to the re
marks of others at the Memphis, Selma
and Brunswick Railroad Convention in
this city on tbe litb, we must refer espe
cially to those of Mi-j. W. J. bykes, who is
probably one cf the best informed men on
railioad subjects iu tbe whole country. In
tbe course of his address be said that if
the object of the Capitalists connect
ed witn the proposed Memphis and
Birmingham road is to reach the coal
and iron of Alabama the cheapest and
bear, if not the shortest route, is
through Aberdeen, and that the Aber
deen road can be built so as to
accomplish bll tbe puipoees of what
is called the direct hue, at greatly reduced
cost. He prea mted the argument that, by
building the road through Aberdeen on
the original survey, Pontotoc, Okolons
and Aberden,nd the whole prairie coun
try, can be supplied with coal, rendering
this a nae maritet tor coal, tne matter oi
fuel having become q iite a problem in
the untimbercd prairie region of East
Mississippi. In regird to the proposed
new line to the north of Aberdeen, he
said that while he was a warm advocate of
road to Birmingham, it is by no means
so important to Memi his and to Kansas
City as the road to Selma. Coal, he said,
could be obtained in Memphis by
the river and by the Memphis
and Louisville, and tbe Cheea-
peake, Ohio end Southwestern rail
roads cheaper than it can be delivered in
the Bluff City from the Alabama mines
and if iron be the object, then the pro
pospd Nashville and Memphis road will
Carry it from Perry, Decatur aud Hick
man counties cheaper than it can be car
ried from Birmingham to Memphis. Upon
me subject ot connections be argued that
the road from r-Leffleld to Birmingham,
connecting with the Memphis and Charles
ton, will afford nearly bs short a line from
Memphis to Birmingham as tbe proposed
direct line from Holly Springs to Birming
hamin fact, the direct line, so-called,
would run far titty or sixty miles either on
tbe tracks of the Sheffield and Birming
ham road or on a line nearly parallel
Mai. Svkes asserted and the propoei
tion is readily indorsed by all who have
given the subject any attention that the
through rente from Kansat City, by way
of Memphis to Brunswick, which is one
of the finest harbors on tbe American sea-
boaid, is by all natural aud commercial
considerations along tbe original line of
survey of the Memphis and Selma road, st
least so far as M ssissippi territory is con
cerned. This line would furnish the grain
and produce dealers of Kansas City and
Memphis their best and quickest outlet
for foreign markets; the distance on direct
line being only 7J7 miles to fealma and 787
Major fcykes is probably more conver
sant than any other man upon railroad
subjects who is not connected with any
road, and he seems to have the whole
Southern system of roads mapped out in
his mind and ready in a moment to show
the advantages or disadvantages of any

FIBE! FIRE I FIRE!
Hear the loud alarm bells,
Tl..n kTl. I
What a tale of terror, now, their turbulaney tells
In tbe startled ear 01 nignt.
How they scream out the r affright.
Too mucn horrified to speak.
They can only shriek, anriek
Out of time.
Tn - atanlAnia, artMAlinar to th. merCf of th. fire,
in a mad expostulation with the deu and frantio
Leaping higher, higher, higher.
With a desperate desire
And a resolute endeavor
Now now to sit or never.
By the side of the pale-faoed moon.

W hat a tale their terror tells
Of despair 1
Tn there anything more appalling?
there anything more fearful ? How those
fire bells bring you from your bed at night
when the cry of fire ia Bounded ! How
those engines tear down the street, hear
the horsee pant; and in the faces of the
firemen you can see tbe heart-throbs.
Who can goeaa who may return, or how
many lives may be consumed? As we
have been taught to dreed the fires of a fut
ure world, so we dread them here. What

how many ruined altars has the fira fiend
made ? Only ve children of want can telL
Stop I Read! Think, and analyze. Yemen
who have buildings and who have wives
and children the fire fiend may escape
from your own houses while you are asleep
and the red torch lick np yonr property
and the lives of those you hold dear.
There ia a remedy, a never-failing remedy,
Let na stop so many fires, and this destruc
tion of lite and property.
"Hibbard's Own Asbestos Paint" is king
of fire and water.
It will not burn, and wood when painted
wRI not burn. Look to your shingle roofs.
'"Behold how great a matter a little fire

Paint" would have prevented it. Let us
stop these fires. Oom to as and we will
