A Thief About Jordan.
Stealing is stealing, it matters not wheth
er the thief is the purloiner of a million
dollars, or of a newspaper that he is too in
tolerably mean and stingy to pay for. There
are one or more such newspaper rogues
around Jordan, and we are sick and tired
of their depredations. We have had many
complaints about these thefts at Jordan,
and in some. instances subscribers have i
been compelled to change their po'stoffice to
Davis to be able to get their papers at all.
They lived a distance from the postoffice, t
and their mail was taken outq by some one,
and never delive.:ed.
Mr. J. L. Eadon told us yesterday he had t
not had a paper for several weeks, and said t
further that every paper he had gotten had i
been opened and read. Now, we say the i
party that has been reading Mr. Eadon's pa- I
per, to avoid paying us for the news we i
publish, has lbeen stealing our wares, and t
when he, she, or they went further, and af- <
ter reading Mr. Eadon's paper, neglected to i
deliver the paper to him, stole his property, 1
If this petty thieving about Jordan does z
not stop, we shall put a detective on the f
track of the thieves, and see what Uncle I
Sam has to say about tampering with his I
mails. Will not the postmaster at Jordan I
help us in this matter?

A WEDDING IN SALEM.
L Delightfl Occasion-A Widower
Yearns Again to Enter the Marital
EDrroR THE iiANNING TLrFs:-It was my
;ood fortune to attend a marriage the 1Gth
nst., and a big infair the 17th, in which I I
>fficiated with much pleasure. The mar
iage took place at the bride's mother's, Mrs.
dirah Goodman. Her daughter, Miss Sallie,
ras married to W. J. Keels, all of Shiloh;
he ceremony was performed by Mr. Gleaton.
Lbout fifty persons attended. I with Dr. I
2. McElveen acted as best men with
wo of Shiloh's belles as bridesmaids. Af
er the ceremony the bridal party took a
'ery.pleasant drive of about one hour. then
epaired to the hospitable home of the hap
iy groom. After this all was as quiet as is
sual under such circumstances, until
bout nine o'clock, when all at once the
omparative quiet was suddenly broken by 4
, salute being fired about three hundred
ards away, making a report like a six
ounder, and in quick succession another,
ad another, accompanied with a lively air
rom the Shiloh colored band, headed and I
aaneuvered by about two dozen of the best
>eople of the neighborhood, about seventy
ve rank and file, all well disciplined. and
uch a display of honor to a bride and
room is seldom if ever witnessed. It was
ery much regretted by Mr. Keels and his
aother, Mrs. Gamble, that they were not
repared to tip the crowd, but not being
ore-warned in a dream or otherwise, of
uch an honorable display by their neigh- i
iors, had to content themselves with the
tope of doing better next time. Well, yes;
ake it on the whole, it was a grand success.
.his display' of music, parade, and firing
alutes, was kept up from nine until twelve
'clock, when the crowd dispersed, and all
ras again quiet.
The seventeenth broke upon the happy
cene with all the serenity of a moderately
empered December day. Let me say just
iere, that it was a day of good things, pre
>ared and furnished by the skillful hands
f the generous mother. The guests bega-i
o gather about nine o'clock, and by twelve
verything had a cheerful aspect. Music
urd conversation was the order of the day.
Lbout one o'clock dinner was served. The
ble was decorated with evergreens, ar
anged dkintily, as only the deft hands of
he fair sex can devise. The bride's cake
ras a marvel of beauty, with a double heart
a raised work of snowy whiteness. To say
be least, the table was loaded down with
11 the good things money could buy, or
ur good soil and climate could produce.
Lbout two o'clock your correspondent left I

Last, but not leist, that is certainly a

Re Was Sorry
There is a negro man at City Point,
rrites a correspondent of Forrest and
stream, so old that no body knows i
tow old he is-one of those old
:ocked-kneed negroes about 100
rears old, all twisted and doubled up
vith rheumatism, who walks or
rawls about with the assistance of
wo canes, and is known as Uncle Joe.
)ne day the old fellow was slowly
naking his way through the village
treet, when along came a white man,
Svery well known character in that
own, "half seas over." He was pret-.
y nearly as "full as a goat," and he
tappened to have his rifle with him,
ad a crack shot he is, wvhetherdrunk
>r sober. As soon as he saw Uncle
roe seated on a stump he sung out:
"I say, Uncle Joe, let me put a po
ato on top of your head and shoot it
i. I willigive you fiity cents if -I
>urst the potato, or a dollar if I kill
The old negro looked up and re
"Do you say, boss, you will give me
fty cents if yout bust the potato, or a
Lollar if ye kill me?
"Yes," was the reply.
"Well, den go ahead, boss," said
he old man.,
The potato was placed on the top
if the ol~d nego's he ad, and the
vhite man staggered off about thirty
aces and drew a bead. The smoke
and fire shot from the rifle and the po
ato spun high in the air.
"Well, I'll be shoved!" said Jim, "I
Lid do it, or I'm a sojer!"'
He staggered up to Uncle Joe,
umbled round in two or three of his
>ockets, fished out a half dollar, and
tanded it to him.
The old man seemed very much
urprised. It was a long time since
ie had seen so much money. He
ooked at it loungly, bit it, turned it
ver, looked up to Jim, 'and said:
