FIRST MARBIAGE LICENSE. j
Law Went Into Effect Saturday-First'
Couple Mr. Bouknight and Miss
The marriage lene law went intog
effect on Saturday, July 1. In mostb
counties, including Newberry; the li
censes are issued by the probate judge.
In a few of the 'counties the licenses
are issued by the clerk of court. a
The first license issued by Probate
Judge J. M. Schumpert on Saturday
was to \Mr. David G. Bouknight, fort
his marriage -t Miss Lilla C. Mat
thews, both of Newberry.r
IThe second license issued by thep
probate judge was to Joe Dawkins and
Belle Sims, a colored couple of the*
lower section of the county.*
The license is issued by the probate i*
judge upon proper affidavits being ,
made before him as to the eligilibility*
of 'the parties to contract matrimony,
and other matters required by the t
statute, and the payment of the fee of
one dollar, seventy'ffve cents of which1 gi
goes into the county funds. The law ti
provides for keeping the records of a:
marriages and for certificates being is- e
sued upon payment 'of fee. The law al
imposes a fine upon any one perform
ing a marriage ceremony in the State1
until the parties contracting matri- h
mny have secured .the license. e

Death of a Valued Citizen.
Mr. R. E. Copeland, one of our most
valued young business men, -and a
good citizen, died at his home in this
city at 3 o'clock Wednesday afternoon.
He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. J.
Cally Copeland, of Clinton, and, be
sides his mother and father, leaves t.wo
brothers and one sister-Messrs. H. S.
Copeland and J. C. Copeland, Jr., of
Columbia, and Mrs. Jack H. Young, of
A few years ago Mr. Copeland mar
ried Miss Mary Bowen, of this city,
'who survives him, and with whom all
our people deeply sympathize in this
hour of her greatest sorrow.
The deceased was a man of many
excellent traits of character and a
citizen whom any town or county could
ll afford to lose. He was about 35
years of age and within the short space
and time we now have at our command
we can not in this brief notice, do cre
dit to his memory.--Laurensville Her
The Herald and News would add to
the above by saying -that the deceased
was one of the noblest works of God,
an honest man. Laurens never had a
better citizen. He was a cousin of the
