In the last issue of THE TIMES,
there was a reference made to our friend

*last issue relating to the enforcmnent of
the vagrancy laws. We hope our town
council will take up this matter as it is
-of great importance. If there is .no
ordihance against vagrancy here, there
should be one, and it should be strictly
enforced. Go out upon our streets any
day, and you will find able-bodied
negroes wolking about with no visible
means of support, follow the creatures
up and it will be seen they live from a

Tetown is too small for such cattle,
and the police should be instructed
that wherever one of them is found
loitering about, pull him, and give him
thirty days on the gang. The class of
men ~we speak of, are those who do
nothing, even for pay. They must be
made to get away from here or go to

be sure and- go to that store, where
you can secure the la-.est and best for
the least money, an, also be certain
that you are gettit4 things as they:are

confidence is half the value, and when
you buy from the Chandler's you are

iss Mary Richardson and Mr. E. D.
prott, she of Pulaski, Tenn., and
daughter of a distinguished Methodist
ninister, he a leading business man of
Anderson, S. C., met in Atlanta Thurs
day afternoon, unknown to parents or
friends, gave old time a merry jerk by
the forelock, flung stupid conventions
to the winds and were married in true
story-book fashion just as twilight fell.
Five minutes later the young bride
telegraphed: Dear mamma, please
send me my trunk.
The trunk i's now on its way, but it
was receded by several hours by Dr.
W. R. Richardson himself, the hero
ine's father, who reached here early
Friday morning, hurried; up to the
Majestic hotel, where Abe honey
mooners are staying, and exclaimed,
as he patted them both on the heads:
"Why, my children, what on earth!
Didn't you know it was .all right?
Couldn't you wait just six days longer?
And your mother! My, my, such a
fluster as she has been in since that

For four years Mr. and Mrs. Sprott
have been sweethearts and for two
years they have been engaged. Ar
rangements for the wedding were com
plete when Miss Richardson's mother
said one morr ing:
Mary, wouldn't it be a good idea for
you to run down to Nashville and try
on your wedding dress for the last
time? There's nothing like being
sure, you know.
Next day Miss Richardson told them
al goodbye at home, but she never
stopped in Nashville. Arrived in
Atlanta she was met by the groom and
an hour afterwards Rev. Dr. Johns had
given the romance its final touch.
Scores 01 congratulations have been
swarming into the happy couple Friday
over the wires and long distance phone.
Even the intended bridesmaids are
happy in their astonishment. Dr.
Richardson proposed Friday morning
that they go back to Pulaski and at
least carry through the plans for a
reception that had been arranged. So
many friends were expecting it.
No, no, no! answered the bride.
Don't you see that would never do?
So the pair will leave for South Car
olina Friday evening, their hopes con
summated and all the worry escaped.
