At the residence of Dr. J. W. Hill on
last Wednesday the brilliant wedding
of Miss Tweetie Hill to Mr. H Cante
Jou occasioned the happiness and en
joyment of many invited guests, for it
was an occasion of great social festiv
ity and pleasure. Miss Tweetie has al
ways been one of Edgefield's most at
tractive and popular young women,
and Mr. Cantclon has been known
??nee his boyhood as unusually prom
ising and talented, and is a Christian
?rendenian of rare attainments.
The interior of the handsome borne
of Dr. Hill vas decorated with much
taste, and did honor to those who ac
complished and designed it. A most
sumptuous repast was spread before
the guests, which was served iu a man
ner extremely pleasant and delightful
to the participants.
The marriage ceremony was per
formed by Dr. L. R. Uwaltney. The
maid of honor was Miss Lillian Koun
t ree of A .gusta The bride wore an
elegant robe of white silk en train?
itnd never looked more beautiful.
At seven o'clock on the succeeding
evening a dinner was given at Dr.
Hill's, to the bridal party, which was
ii delightful consummation of the
whole. Mauy kind wishes attend the
iiteps of these young people, and may
I he realization of their brightest hopes
ever encourage and reward them in
the future pathway of life.

"The unexpected always happens.'?
So we felt when on last Friday morn
ing" the sad news was ilrst heard,
that Mrs, Gena Shaffer had gone from
our mi J st. After a few short hours of
severe physical pain, she was no more,
for she had entered into that sleep
which knows no waking, so far as our
mortal vision can penetrate, and yet
which promises an awakening 4?n his
likeness." Had she not many times
dreamed and longed forthat awaken
Though to the friends of earth the
separation is an unspeakable grief, does
not the ii spired poet assert, that "pre
cious in the sight of the Lord is the
death of his saints? She would have
communed with God in the observ
ance of the Lord's supper a few days
hence with her earthly friends by her
side, in an earthly tabernacle, but how
much sweeter, how much more glori
ous will the communian be in that
heavenly laud, with many loved ones
who have long since gone before and
with many who have one by one made
vacant places in ber sympathetic and
loving heart! Where could be found a
more tender, geatle, faithful soul than
Mrs. Shaffer, a friend to all, a kind and
prayerful eutreater with the erring, a
sympathizer with the bereaved and
suffering, au earnest and consecrated
influencer of youth, "a friend t? chil
dren,* never absent from any place
where duty called, or help was needed.
How we will miss her.
She leaves behind her one daughter,
M?3S Isol?e Shaffer, to whom all hearts
go out in sympathy, and a 3ister and
brother, Mrs. S. S. Tom pk i ns of Colum
bia and Prof. Cuthbert Sbecut, of Ma
rion S C. Many friends will mourn
her loss, but none need grieve as those
without hope/ for she had loug ago
loved the Saviour supremely, and bad
made his honor and glory the chief
end of her life, to that she is now at
"His right hand where there is fulness
of joy and in his presence where are

Thursday Night's Fire.
On last Thursday night, between two
and three o'clock, our town was arous
ed by an alarm of Are, which proved to
be the two-story residence of Col. Hen
ry Addison, in south Edgefield. The
flames were discovered too late to ar
rest their destructive course, the fami
ly escaping brrely with their lives,
saving absolutely notning from the
burning building. Col. A?: di son feels
aSS'T'dthe tire was (he work of an
incendiary, although he has not au
enemy in the wornt, so far as we know.
Holland's stables, occupied at the time
by li. L. .1 OHOS, were also burned, but
the horses were saved, almost miracu
lously. The wind veered just in time
to save Mr. Croker's wagon shops,
which at onetime were in imminent
danger. In fact all wooden buildings
on the opposite side of the street were
saved by the same circumstance. We
hear there was no insurance on the
stables and only $^50 on Col. Addison's
property-a mere bagatelle. The sym
pathies of our entire community are
with those who are thus made homeless
and bereft at one fell stroke of their
Lares aud Penates as well.
