trate outof the primary will be decid
ed by the county convention which

had they seen the original. The
whole picture which is v jry large
and enclosed in a handsome frame
carries with it a dignity and value
worthy of the artist and the sincere
admiration of those who behold it.

tions to our young friends, Miss
Sallie Hammond and Mr. Homer
Williams, who were married at Red
Hill church Sunday afternoon by
Rev. J. T. Littlejohn. Miss Ham
