The pastor will preach on the subject,
; "God's I'se of Weak Things." Men are
! prone to trust in themselves and their
power, but God uses things that seem
weak in the eyes of men even to con,'found
the mighty. It is wonderful to
, trace this subject through ihe Bible.
It opens up great fountains of thought,
.'and gives us wonderful encourage!

3:1-11, John the Baptizer is only a
j "voice crying in the wilderness," but a
! voice that reached thousands, and
j turned them from sin and the wrath
to come. The great gift of Christmas
\vas only a weak little Baby, but destined
to save the world. "Out of the
i mouth of babes and sucklings hast
I thou ordained strength." "At that
'time Jesus answered and said, I thank
<thee, 0 Father, Lord of Heaven and
I Earth, because thou has hid these
j things from the wise and -prudent, and
iias revealed them unto babes." Many
things to encourage and strengthen

Tribut to tfr. Scurry.
The following tribute to Mr. Jno. R. j
Scurry was written by H. M. Ayer
when he was here writing up various
articles for The Herald and News: ,
J. R. Scurry, City Clerk and Treisurer.
The financial interests of the city
are in the care and keeping of Mr.1
Jonn K. scurry, wno nas Kepi uiem
well in hand for a goodly number of
years. He has been a bookkeeper all
of his business life, asd he has been
a good one, as is evidenced by the
great confidence that is reposed in him
and in his records in city affairs. It
is Mr. Scurry's duty to keep funds cn
hand to pay claims or else have such
a good excuse that the claimant will
feel almost as good a9 if he had gotten
his money. Cities, like individuals,
have a hard time keeping cash on
hand, only individual creditors :hing
that the city can shake a bush and
get all the money that its creditors
might want, even though they might
mant more from the city than from the
individuals they sell to, or work for.
Mr. Scurry, handling public money,
must be able at any minute, without
warning, to tell just where the odd
98 cents of last year's discount off the
policemen't uniforms went to, or any
such items. In fact, he must be able
i to so keep his books that no one need
! ask questions unless they are too lazy
to look into the books to see . He does
this, and he keeps all of the records of
the city just as accurately, looks for
ward to the obligations that are going
to arise, smooths down taoee who have
grouches against the street department,
board of health, police or fire
department, they all come to him. He
has also Co collect licenses and see
that no one dodges out and leaves his
part of the burden for another to carry,
and he has numerous other duties too
numerous to mention, and he discharges
them with fidelity and zeal.
Onp t.hine that his office does not call
for is a politician, and IMr. Scurry is
not a politician, but he is a very genial
and pleasant gentleman and has a host
of friends. He is a native of Chappells.
Just at the close ot a beautiful win-'
ter's day was solemnized the marriage
of one of -V wberry's most charming
young ladies. Miss Mary Frances Suhcr,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chas.
S. Suber. and (Vr. Patrick Bowers
(Mitchell of Prosperity, S. C.
Upon approaching the pretty coun-'
fry nome of the bride, one's eyes were,
greeted with myriads of lights, both
from without and within, reminding the .
arriving^guests of the unusual warmth .
and hospitality of this home. A few,
minutes before 6 o'clock an enjoyable
musical program was rendered by Mrs.'
Edwin B. Setzler. at the conclusion of
which the strains of Lohengrin's wedding
march announced the approach^
of the bridal party.
First to enter were the two little
girls who stretched the white ribbons
to form an aisle for the bridal party.
Next were the ushers, Mr. iA\ T. Brown*

of chiffon, silver lace trimmings caught |
, up with irridescent bead sequins. Th.e
i veil was worn cap fashion, with wreath ;
i of orange blossoms which bad been
j worn by her mother at her marriage.
I Tne bride's only ornament was a peari
j and diamond brooch, the gift of tha1
groom. She carried a bouquet of.
I bride's roses with shower of ivalley j
. lilies, tied with maline.
The impressive ring ceremony was'
! performed by the bride's pastor, Rev. |
! W. E. Furcron of Whitmire, S. C. 'The j
! hall was a woodland scene with its
j rich red autumn leaves, trailing vines
! and spicy carnations. Receiving here '
I were Mr. Will Brown and Miss Myrtle'
i Suber, Mr. Elmore Suber and Miss
'Vlnnie Brown. The parlor where the
' ceremony was performed was a picture
cf harmony and simplicity.
A white carpeted aisle led to the improvised
altar, where the ceremony
was performed. This altar was draped
in white, with tracings of asparagus
ferns, smnax ana wna Darauoo, wim
rows of candles peeping ciieir soft
lights out from among the green. On
either side of the altar were two tall
I w;hite pedestals topped with jars of
tall graceful sword ferns. Between
; these was a large white fur rug upon
which the bride and groom stood. i
' *To add a finishing touch of white to
this room, were garlands white
roses and ferns draped on the altar, I

The dining room was picturesque in
its trimmings of southern smilax, ferns
and pink roses. A,round the walls was
a friezs of roses and ferns. A valance
i / ,
of pink was suspended from the win-(
dows and the cabinets had their lace
covers over pink and banked with pink |
roses and feathery ferns, with pink!
tapers here and there,
, The bride's table was most beautiful
with its battenberg cover over pink
with a tall cut glass vase of pink roses
inA cnff- fprn?
j -Sufiptnded from the pink shaded
| hanging lamp was pink tulle and smi'
lax, which ended at the four corners I
1 of the table in a big bow of tulle and
1 roses. Brass candle stands with pink
i tapers and cut glass bon bon dishes of
i pink and white mines added the finsh- j
, ing touch to the table.
j The bride's cake was artistically
i trimmed and afforded much merri-":
' ment with its emblems. j
j The varied collection of handsome j
! and costly presents were displayed in '
the sitting room. This room was quite i
cheerful with its touches of holly, red j
carnations and pots of red Christmas
