A Noble Old Gentleman and Lady.
-A Happy Wedding.
We lately enjoyed the pleasure of dining
with the Hon. Luke Culbreath and his
noble lady. We foundfthem well and rea
sonably cheerful and happy. How blessed
are~all those that to every noble human ?
trait of character havefjn addition the di
vine graces of charity, resignation and
faith. They have the highest enjoyment
in prosperity and with more than Roman
fortitude can bear adversity and sorrow.
The event of the month surely was the
brilliant wedding at Dr. Strom's. It took
place at 2 P. M. The company, while con
fined to the immediate clans, numbered
about sixty or more. The elegant parlor
was neatly decorated, darkened by blinds
and shadeB, and then lighted up brightly
with some dozen blazing lamps. At the
appointed time, the bridal party, consist
ing ot seven or eight couples of select
young gentlemen and ladies, filed in, form
ing a circle around the minister with the
bride and groom directly in front of him.
Then a brief ceremony by Rev. Mr. Gaines
linked for life the destinies of two of the
finest looking and best young people in the
country-Car. Williams and Lela Strom,
The friends and relatives generally took
part in the usual congratulations.
An elegant and bountiful dinner follow
ed, at which everybody seemed to make
haste slowly. It was not in our power to
attend the reception the next day at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton, but I
know it was a fitting wind-up of the en

Dear Old Advertiser:]! appreciate your
weekly visits to this little burg, situated
on a creek of the eame^name. At this
place there is a large flooring mill, con
taining four sets of runners and a gin.
This stream would afford water power
enough to run a large factory.
Our County was called Cuss before the
war, and then the Court House was lo
cate! at Cuss ville. When Sherman came
he burnt up Cussville. Then after the
war the Court House was located at Car
ter8ville, which now contains about 3,500
inhabitants. It is located on the W. & A,
R. R., 4S miles N. W. of Atlanta. Car
tersville supports two weekly papers and
has a Narrow Gauge Railroad, running tc
Cross Plains, Ala, whic? carries an im
mense amount of freight and is paying
wei!. This county contains a population
of 1S.090, of which G.271 b.re colored
Lands are productive and can be bought
for from 50 cts. to $100 per acre, Coriwji
selling a* 50 cte. per bushel. This is tb
home of Bill Arp, Sam Jones and W. H
Felton, ex member to Congress.
I take a deep interest in the wc!'"are r
old Edgefield, as it is the home of m]
childhood. I heard a man of Cartersvill
relate an anecdote on an Edgefield soldie:
in the Mexican war. He said in one o
the battles the soldier from Edgefield wai
noted for his expertness for dodging bnl
let*, and his Captain reproved him for it
He said; "Captain, I am from Edgefield
S. C , and if you had been raised there am
had not learned to dodge bullets you woul<
have long since been killed." Would i
not be well for yoa to exercise a little mor
forbearance one towards another, " am
seek not to avenge yourselves one of an
other, for vengeance is mine sayeth th'
Lord of Hosts." E. H.

called among the legal fraternity in New

has crossed over the " Pons Asinorum"

Hence the great yearning among members
of the bar for the Evarts wrinkle.

PRAYING FOR SHOES.
On a dark NovetubM morning
A lady walked slo'.viy down
T: turor g ?d. tumultuous thoroughfare
U; an ancient seaport, town.
Of i winning and gracious beauty,
The pe .ice on ber pure youDg face
WKS soil, as the gleam ol' an angel's dream
lu the calms of a heavenly place.
Her eyes were fountains of pity,
And tbe sensitive mouth expres?ed
A longing to set the kind thoughts free
In music that ?!led her breast.
She met, by a bright shop-window,
An urchin, timid and thin,
Who, with limb9 that shoos and a yearn
Was mistily glancing in,
At tho rows and varied clusters
Of slippers and shoes outspread,
.Some, shimmering keen, but of sombre
Some, purple and green and red.
His pale lips moved and murmured ;
But of what, she could not hear.
And oft on his folded hands would fall
The round of a bitter tear.
'. What troubles you, child?'' she asked
In a voice like the May-wind sweet,
He turned, and while pointing dolefully
To his naked and bleeding feet,
"1 was praying for shoep," he answered:
(Just look at the splendid show !)
" 1 was praying to God for a single pair,
The sharp stones hurt me so !"
She led him, in museful silence,
At once through the open door,
And his hope grew bright, like a fairy
That flickered and danced before!
And there be was washed and tended.
And his small brown feet weie shod ;
And he pondered there on his childish
And the marvelous answer ol God.
Above them his keen gaze wandered.
How strangely from shop and shelf,
Till it is'almost seemed that he fondly
Of looking on God himself.
The lady bent over, and whispered :
"Are you happier now, my lad ?"
He started, und all his soul flashed forth
In a gratitude swift and glad,
" Happy ?-Oh ! yes !-1 am
Then wonder with reverence rife,
(His eves aglow, and his voice sunk low)
" Please tell me ! Are you God's wife?"
