The people of our quiet.littlc town
were made sad Sunday evening last,
by the announcement ot the sudden
death ol Col. John P. Barrett at his
home on Clay Street. He had been
somewhat indisposed for several days,
but heart failure ended all very suddenly
on the beautiful sabbath day,
at 2 o'clock.
Col. Barrett was n remarkable man,
possessing talents of a very high order,
had a loity sense of honor and in
business tact was seldom excelled.
He was born May 7, i8ji, on a
farm near Banetts Ferry, where he
lived until his majority, when he
came to Hartford and accepted a position
in the store of his uncle, Mr.
William Barrett. He was engaged in
business at Calhoou for a time, but
in the early years of the sixties he
came back to Hartford, where he continued
to reside until his death. By
his many good qualities he soon endeared
himself to a large circle ot
friends and early in life he entered
upon one of the most brilliant political
careers in the history o( local pol
itics In 18678 he was Deputy Sheriff
under Sheriff John A.Taylor and
was elected to the position of High
Sheriff in 186S and re-elected in 1870.
His majorities were very large, showing
his great popularity.
In 1875 Col. Barrett bought an outfit
and began the publication of The
Hartford Herald, soon making it one
of the foremost county papers in the
State. He continued in the newspaper
business until 111 18S6, when he
sold the Herald to Messrs. Rhoads &
Felix. He has been a very successful
Fire and Kifelnsurancemanand at the
time of his derth had paid up policies
amounting to $7,000
During the twelve years of Judge
K. P. Kittle's service on the bench in
this Di&trict, Col. Barrett filled the
office of Master Commissioner with
On May 15, 1866 he was married
to Miss Mattic Bonner, of Calhoon.
This proved a happy union, for both
the contracting parties were of superior
intelligence and itfi cnentj the
wife entering with great zeal and effect
into the lilcwork of hcrhusband. To
them were born two exceedingly
bright children, but death called them
away in early childhood.
The funeral exercises were conducted
at the home by Rev. K. IK Pate
Monday evening and at 3 o'clock the
remains were laid to rest in the South
Hartford Cemetery beside the departed
little ones. Death may take
the body away, but good works endure
At n meeting ol the members of the
bar held nt court hall, Monday,
June 4, to take action relative to the
death of Col. John P. Barrett, K. D.
GulTy was chosen Chairman and B.
D. Ringo Secretary. (. S. Glenu, J,
S R. Wedding and B.D. Ringo were
appointed a comuuttecou resolutions,
and it was ordered that the bar attend
the funeral in a body, wearing the
usual badge of mourning, J.S.Glenn,
B. D. Ringo, John P. Morton, M. K.
Heavrin, F. K. Felix and Jo. B. Rogers
were chosen to act as pall-bearers,
and the following resolutions were
HKSOLUTIONS Ol' THR IIAR.
Death having again entered the
ranks of this bar and removed from
earth to the final judgment one of
the oldest members in point of service
as a lawyer and an officer of this
court, it is fitting that wc, hjs co-laborers
and friends, offer this tribute to
his memory and assemble together to
pay the last offering about his bier.
RcsoiA'nb, That in the death of
Col. John P. Barrett, who departed
this life at 2 o'clock on Sunday afternoon,
June 3, 1894, this bar Jost one
of its ablest members and the community
a good .and useful citizen and
the court nn ofilcerwho in every position
given to his keeping had served
it faithfully and well.
Rksoi.vkd, That his death removes
a man from public life who was true
U the obligations of office, loyal to
his clients as a lawyer and faithful to
every trust reposed in him.
Resolvrd, That unto the will of
Him who doeth all things well, we
bow in humility as we surrender into
Ills hands our comrade and friend.
We, will cherish the memory of his
many noble traits of character as an
officer, a lawyer and as a man.
Rksolvkd, That to his wife, who
has been the faithful sharer of his life
so long nnd who has shown herself so
true a companion and wife, and to his
family we extend the sincerest sympathy,
. Rksolvkd, That a copy of these
proceedings be furnished to his bereaved
wife and a copy to each of our
.county papers and that these resolutions
be spread upon 'the minutes of
the court3 of the county,

Not only was the marriage of Mr.
Holmes Cummins, of Memphis,,
Tenu,, to Miss Tula Pendleton at the
residence of Dr. J. E. Pendleton, on
Tuesday one of the most pleasant
of recent social events, but it was
easily the most brilliant wedding ever
celebrated in Hartford. It seemed
that alt that art and nature could do
to beautily the stately residence had
been done. The rooms were tastefully
festooned with ferns and flowers and
nestling there in its cluster of trees,
the mansion greeted the glad rays
of the bright sunshine as though itself
aware of the happy union soon
to be solemnized within its walls.
The invited guests arrived at about
to:3o,and spent a-half hour in social
enjoyment. At it o clock Prof. Gustavo
Frese, of Kouisville, began the
wedding march and the bride nnd
groom entered preceded by Dr. J. S.
Coleman, little Miss Sallie Taylor
very prettily filling the .place of maid
of honor. In a few, yet highly appropriate
words Dr. Coleman pronounced
the beautiful ceremony,
presenting the wedding ring.
The artistic manner in which Mr.
Gustave Frese played "The bridal
chorus from Kohengrin," as the bridal
party entered the room, "The
Traumrei," during the ceremony and
afterwards Mendelsshon Wedding
March," was gratifying to all present,
being an example of that which Is
sweetest and most beautiful in music.
After congratulation of friends the
doors of the capacious dining hall
were thrown open nnd a delightful
breakfast was served. Caterer Klien
lent all his energies to make the repast
a most appropriate and . pleasing
one and right well did he succeed.
Champagne flowed freely and the
good cheer ot that hours' refreshing
enjoyment will linger long in the
minds of the participants. The bridal
cake was a thing of rare beauty
I and excellence. It was composed of
, two pieces in the shape of hearts
joined by an arrow, the whole surmounted
and decorated by cuplds.
At 12 o'clock the bridal party took
leave of the iamily and guests and
were driven to 'Beaver Dam where
they took the train to Kouisville, in the
private car of Gen. John Echols, who
was in attendance. The young people
from Kouisville goto New York
aud the eastern cities and other
points of interest, returning to their
future home in Memphis about the
The bride is one of Kentucky's
fairest young women and never looked
more exquisitely beautiful than on
her wedding day. She has had splendid
opportunities and has profited by
them. Her beauty, her
gifts and her many womanly virtues
will ive her high rank in the society
of her southern home. The groom is
a young man of strong mind and high
character, standing in the very forefront
of the young business men of
the South. Many are the wishes following
the happy couple and bidding
them God's speed on their way to all
joy and happiness attainable.

Tent Meeting- nt Benver Bam,
The tent meeting, conducted by
Rev. D. P. Kerr, assisted by other
noted ministers, is still growing in
interest. Beaver Dam was never before
so shaken as at the present. The
earnest appeals made by Rev. Kerr,
are listened to by large congregations
and are irrcsistable. Hisseimons are
plain and pointed anoV have the "old
time" ring. Many have expressed
the desire to lead a better life. Up to
date 1 1 have professed saving faith in
fchrist Our christian people have
all fallen into line, and are working
harmoniously for the glory of pod,
and it is expected ere the close oi this
meeting that scores will be brought
to the fold oi Christ.
These ministers of God are having
wonderful success. Wherever they
have gone good results havefollowed.
We believe that they were divinely
sent to our town, and it seems that
our people were thirsting for fold
time religion" as tbese brethren have
no compromise to make with forms
and names, and claim that the truth
of God can make men free.
These brethren have many invitations
to hold revival meetings at other
points. They will go from this
place to Central City, and we predict
a great revival there.
