B. H. MILLER INTENDANT.
Election For Town Officers of Little
Mountain-Woodmen of the
Little Mountain, March io-Signs
and wonders. Our hoary heads tell
us that a calm March is indication of
a blustry April. Spring has made her
appearance and verdure clothes the
fertile vale, but preparations for plant
ing have been retarded, and the pre
diction is that Jack Frost will "nip"
things in the bud about the 23rd.
Snow fell here freely on April 6, but
nothing was injured by the frost on
the following morning.
The farmers of this section are us
ing for fertilizer principally cotton
seed meal, as they believe this will
yield better results. This is a stand
it is gratifying to see our farmers
take, for by so doing they will pat
ronize home industry and thereby
build up their country.
There was a town election held
here on April 8 for intenlant and
four wardens, which resulted as fol
lows: B. H. Miller, intendant;
Messrs. J. K. Derrick and J. E. Shea
ly wardens. Messrs. J. B. Derrick,
S. W. Young and T. L. Shealy tied
for the position of the two remaining
wardens. The contest by these three
gentlemen will be decided on the af
ternoon of April 15.

REMARRIED IN GEORGIA.
Northern Tourists in Aiken Afraid of
South Carolina Divorce
A dispatch from Augusta says thai
Woodbury Kane and Sallie H. El
liott of Newport, R. I., came to Au'
gusta on Friday from Aiken, S. C.
where they had been spending the
winter, and where they were recentll
married and were married in August:
'by a justice of the peace.
The second marriage of the coupl
was performed under a license issue<
in Richmond county, Ga., and wa
deemed necessary because divorce
are recognized in Georgia, while il
South Carolina they are not, Mrs
Elliott being a divorced woman. N<
explanation was offered by Mi
Kane, but there appears to be genera
satisfaction that the law has bee:
co~mplied with by having the ma:
riage legalized in a divorce state.
A dispatch from Aiken says th
the report that Mr. and Mrs. Woo
bury Kane were remarried by Magi
trate Bennett in Augusta created co
siderable surprise in Aiken in vic
of the fact that the parties were ma
ried in St. Thaddeus Episcopal churi
by the rector, Rev. T. W. Clift. C
Monday, March 27 last, when Cal
Kane and Mrs. Elliott were marri
in Aiken, this wedding aroused co
siderable discussion, owing to t
fact that Mrs. Elliott has been
vorced and the laws of South Car
lina are very stringent upon the su
ject. It is said that Mr.- Clift pe
formed the ceremony in the face
considerable objection upon the pa
of some of his congregation. It
also said that some of the ladies
his church harassed him considerab
upon the matter, some pleading wi
him hysterically, and seeming to thil
that the church was desecratcd I
such a ceremony. Mr. Clift is.an ea
nest man of strong convicti5n;. an
as he knew that the marriage
which he was to officiate was strict
sanctioned by the laws of his chur
and by the laws of South Carolir
and performed the ceremony, h
congregation are now apparently sa
The second act, which occurred
Augusta, was totally unexpected, ar
as before stated, has created sor
surprise. There' was no apparent re
son for a second ceremony.
Rev. T. W. Clift was seen ai
seemed as much surprised as eve
one else. He has no statement
make, and all he would say was th
he knew no reason for it and cou
not understand why the Augus
ceremony was performed.
