Fifteen Hundred Turkeys.
Mr. A. J. McKimmin put a little
advertisement in The Citizen two
weeks to buy turkeys and mention
ed two days when the could be
delivered to him. As a result he
shipped 1400 yesterday to Miller
Mrc.s. at Now Orleans. . A pretty
fair two days purchase for this
market. If he had simpfy gonp on
the market two days without ad
veitisiDg he could not have bought
one-tenth of this number, and
would have hail io pay four timet;
the rate of freight. It pays to ad
vertise in The Citizen.
A Distinguished Eepublican in Trouble,
Last Saturday afternoon about 5
o'clock, J. Polk Edwards, ex-secre
tary of the Giles county republican
executive committee, had a one
sided street fight with his wife
which promises lo get that distin
guished political leader into seri
ous trouble. His cohorts have not
been 6o docile of late as the emi
nent leadvr could have wished, and
their defection has not tended to
sweeten his temper. He is badly
crippled in one of his arms and is
not physically able to enter the
arena and vie with brute force
against a wpII developed specimen
of genua homo, and now, a second
time within six short months,
emerges victorious from a pugilis
tic engagement with "a bellicose
representative of the genus fanlail.
For prudential reasons the ex sec.
g. c. rep. ex. com. kept himself be
yond the ken of the fly cop during
Sunday morning, and in the after
noon very unostentatiously board
ed a north bound train to take a
trip for his health. The fly cop,
being duly informed of his depar
ture, telegraphed the minions of the
law at Columbia, a village near
Dark's Mill, that the honorable
gentleman had friends here who
would regret bis departure very
much and begged them to persuade
him to remain there until a delega
tion of city officials could follow
him and escort him back to the
city. The message further set
forth that the ex-sec. fec. was in
terested in a legal proceeding here
that would necessarily await his re
turn for final settlement, and it is
thought this latter consideration
induced him to return, which he
did with much reluction. He ar
rived Monday escorted by Mr.
Flippin, and is registered at the
English hotel, a house much pat
ronized by gentlemen who have
auy unfortunate connection with a
criminal case in any of our local
courts.
Yesterday Edwards requested an
interview with a Citizen reporter
and stated that the o'riginal charge
against him bad been assault and
battery and that it had been chang
red to "assault with intent to kill"
though influence of members of the
Pulaski know-nothing party, that
they had represented to his wife,
the complainant, that they were as
much interestedin his conviction as
she could be. That he would not
affiliate with the know-nothing ele
ment of his party, and used his in
fluence to keep others out. That he
could not be run out of town as
Sam. Walker had been, and that
they could have more harmo
ny in the party if he could be sent
to the penitentiary. He says the
assault was as nearly justifiable as
circumstances could make it, and
would have been compromised had
not his wife been influenced by po
litical leaders for political ends. He
says when the order for his arrest
reached Columbia where he is
known the officers would not sub
ject him to the indignity of incar
ceration in jail. He confidently
predicts that the political scheme
to 'magnify his offense to get him
out of tbeir way will fail and that
he will remain a thorn in the flesh of
the leaders of the Pulaski know
nothing party.
Hughes-Phillips.
Last Tuesday afternoon a num
ber of Pulaskians drove out to
Mr. John Phillips to witness the
marriage of his lovely daughter,
Miss Rosa.to Mr. Frederick Hughes
ot Dallas, Texas. Quite a crowd
of guests were assembled in the
parlor at 5 o'clock when the brida'
and groom entered. They were
preceded by Misses Ella and Mary,
younger sisters of the bride, beau
tifully attired in;piukand blue alba
tross. Mrs. Griffith rendered Men
uolsshon's grand wedding march as
they enterred, and at it's conclu
sion Rev. T. J. Duncan performed a
short but solemn ceremony. After
a pleasant interval spent in con
gratulations, cordially tendered and
gracefully received, such a feast
was Berved as will long be remem
bered by the guests. The numer
ous presents displayed were hand
some and costly. The bride and
groom left on No. 1 for New Or
leans Tuesday night. They will
spend a few days in that city
and go oa to their home in Dallas,
where Mr. Hughes is a prominent
figure in business and social circles.
The bride will be greatly missed
here. Bright and vivacious, mod
est and gracious, she combines the
womanly charms that never fail to
make friends and admirers. The
Citizen proffers its hearty good
wishes for the success, and happi
nessof the young people in their
new life.
Burned to Death.
Monday afternoon little Jane
Thomas, five year old daughter of
Mr. Cale Thomas, was playing near
the fire when her clothing ignited
and she was horribly burned about
the face, throat, chest and arms.
No one was in the house at the
time but another little nine year
old sister of the unfortunate child.
She ran for water and threw it up
on the burning child and ex
tinguished the ire. Dr. W. E.
Wilson was summoned to attend
the little sufferer. He found her in
a pitiable condition, hopelessly in
jured. He did all he could, of course,
to stay the excruciating pains. She
lingered until' next day and died
at 1 o'clock. Words of colaolation
but muck the great anguish that
weighs upon the hearts that are
brokeu by this cruel, cruel acci
dent. A whole community deeply
sympathizes with the family.
Woodring Tucker.
Mr. W. T. Wopdripg, a popular
Pul ifcki boy, but now of Nashville,
was united tu oiarriajjc to Miss El
len Tucker of Nashville yesterday
n.t 7 o'clock p. m. at the rtsidence
of the bride's faher, Dr. N. G.
Tucker. Tiny kit for ibis city
immediately a'ter the ceremony was
performed and will spend a !'.'
davs here with Mr. G. W. Wood-
ring, the groom's father. Mrs.
Woodring (nee Miss Tucker) made
a brief visit to Pulaski last summer
and made quite a number of friends
who will ba gad to welcome ber
ngsin on 60 felicitous an occasion.
We join their many friends, both
here and in Nashville, in wishing
them a long and happy life.
"The children and teachers of the
Methodi6t isupday school are to be
treated to a supper nest Tuesday
night. It will be in the basement
ot the church unless the weather is
too cold, Jn that event a more
comfortable place will be selected.

Died, Sunday, Dec. 19, daughter
of Peter Beckham at his home on
Buchanan's creek, aged six years.
Eape in the Second Degree.
Aaron Nelson, col d, after pre
liminary exaiEinaiion Monday
was bound over to the circuit court
to answer for attempting to rape
Jenny Sherrill. ool'd. The testimo
ny of the several witnesses was con
tradictory in some material points
but all tended to show that the ac
cused was guilty, lie availed him
self of his constitutions) prcro-.a
live to make a statement nct un
der oath. He acknowledged im
proper advances, but denied that
violence was used or contemplated.
He said complainant had made ar
rangements for the so called rape,
sending one of the children to a
neighboring house on an errand,
another to the spring for water
and the small ones out in the cold
to ".amuse themselves. He states
that she was quite quiescent
and tractable till one of the chil
dren came to theloor and aunounc
cd that her hasbmd was co-nmg.
The husbind followed so closely
upon the announcement th-t the
house was in disorder when he en
tered. "Aaron says the faithless
wife invented the story of rape to
shield herself from the wrath of her
injured spouse, and but for his un
timely arrival the trouble had not
been. He was arrested by Deputy
Sheriff Felix Aymett and brought
to town Saturday and the trial was
before Esq. Richardson. The crime
was committed in the 11th district
Tuesday before.
Break Up the Free School.
If we were opposed to the free
school system in Pulaski we would
proceed thus to break it up: We
would hire a man to organize the
negroes into a Know-Nothing party,
or some other kind of party, and
let them meet secretly and pretend
to be about to nominate a board of
aldermen and candidates for the
ciry offices. Then we would con-
trivexo let the secret slip out so
that the whits people would be dis
gusted at the attempt of irresponsi
ble persons and country negroes to
take charge of the town and would
retaliate by breaking down the
schools to punish the negroes. We
could thus mae the negroes cut
their own throats. You cm easily
impose on them and they will bite
at the thing quick. They would
not know that we were using them
to ruin them. Next Saturday night
they are to meet and if we conclude
to try to break up the schools we
will try to hire some fellow to per
suade them to nominate a board.
If we could thus disgust a few of
the friends of the school they would
vote lor t he opposition board. If we
do conclude to do it we will let the
public know that the v. hole thing is
a trick to fool the friends of the
school into opposing it.
Soiree Musicals.
Miss Guysi's vocal and instru
mental classes at Martin College
gave a most delightful entertain
ment Tuesday evening in the chap
el. The performers were Misses
Lela Crow, Annie Abernathy, Min
nie Meyers, Kate Williams, Jennie
Sowell, Leonora Byrom, Maggie
Sinclair, Estelle Prewett, Irene
Hodge, Gallic Duncan, Carrie Rob
inson, Minnie Martin and Nora
Woods. The performances consti
tuted a happy criticism upon Miss
Guj'si's methods of teaching and
each ot the jroung ladies acquitted
herself with much credit. It would
be cruel to particularize, although
there were several real exquisite
renditions that deserve special
praise. Miss Pauline Frayser de
livered a recitation between acts
that in manner and matter ex
posed the ability ot her tutors. At
theclose a dialogue in French by
several of the young ladie3 was to
tally unintelligible but served to
demonstrate tueir familiarity with
the subject.
A Highly Colored Wedding.
Mr. lsham G. H. Rodes, Tub
Citizen's crank artist, has made an
appointment to wed Miss Mittte
Clack, both highly colored, during
the Christmas. The wedding is to
be at the Missionary Baptist
church, near the Suburb Inferno,
and is to be a very fashionable and
recherche affair. Th$ groom will
wear a white plug hafr with striped
socks to match, and the bride will
adorn her scrambled bangs with a
red string. The gallant groom has
been doing the all-round work on
The Citizen Acme Power press for
years and occasionally has an ad
venture with the broom; he sleeps
twenty-five hours a day and his
linen keeps pace with the seasons.
The future is radiant with hope
beauteous soap for these who will
link their destinies for a few brief
weeks.

Married in Pulaski.
Mr. T. Marion Stevenson of Bry
son was married Monday at 1
o'clock to Miss E. M. Jackson,
daughter of Andrew Jackson of Su
gar creek, at the residence of Mr.
Thos. M. Booth in Pulaski by Rev.
W. S. Harwell. The contracting
parties kept their secret well. Mr.
Stevenson ' divulged it to his fa
ther's family Saturday night, and
Miss Jackson told no one. This
item will probably be the first no
tice her family receive. She was
on a visit to Mr. Booth's family to
whoovshe is related, and none of
them knew it until Monday morn
ing. The groom was accompanied
by his brother, Mr. W. B. Steven
son of Del rose, and the happy
couple left immediately for his
father's. Mr. Coleman Stevenson.
May their lives be long in the land.

Coming to Martin College.
Bowling Green Evening Democrat.
Judge C. M. Thomas arrived 5n

Tenn., where she will enter school
under the tutelage of Miss Laura
blaiock, formerly connected with
schools here and a most excellent
lady aud teacher. Miss Sallie
Cooke of this city is connected
with the college at Pulaski. It is
quite a compliment to this noted
seat of learning that ah associate
justice of Dakota brings his daugh
ter so tar to give her the advanta
ges thereof.
artin College To-Kight.
The entertainment that was to

ing for a good school.

to be troubled of late and the

of the tide and are takins upon
themselves the responsibility of
married life. Among the number
we notice Tom Wilson to Miss Mat
lie Lewis; Bryfon Huglicy to Miss
Ida It MtKnight; Doc. Wallace to
Miss Lizzie Campbell. Our wish
for them is that their path down
the stream of iife may be one of
pleasure, that all their troubles may
be little ones, and that their sky
may he clouded just enough through
life to have a bright suu'-et. We
expect to have some other weddings
soon. The boys say there will be
only one youag lady left.

Everybody has gone into win
ter quarters in this section render-
ng news items as scarce as jay
birds in a storm. It is currently
eported by our oldest inhabitants
that we have had some little snow
uring the past three weeks, and as
they are of unquestioned veracity,
wc take for granted that it did
snow some. There i3 not much
alk about Christmas yet and we
look for a very dull one. Possibly
we will have a wedding or two dnr-
ng the holida-8 which will in a
measure break the monotony of the
season, in ad am Xiumor has it that
we will have two weddings in this
icinity shortly. It is strikingly
trange how the old lady Rumor
ets into so many secrets as to
have such reports currently circu-
ated around.
