peculiarly impressive and eloquent
manner, in the presence of many
friends and relatives of the two fami

at 1:30 o'clock p. m.. the groom and
his fair young bride left for their
home in Chattanooga, departing
amidst a shower of rice and old slippers.
The bride was conspicuous in Mc
Minnville's galaxy of fair daughters
for her many personal charms and
graces. A sweet and winning dis
position is happily blended with a
lustrous intellect in her character,
and in life's lottery her husband has
drawn a prize of which he may well
feel proud. Likewise is she well
mated to a gentleman whose gifts
and talents make him well worthy of
his bride. Mr. Spurlock is one of
Tennessee's brightest young attor

Mr. Mortimer Augustus Doty died
at his home in this place at 9:30
o'clock Thursday night, Jan. 29th,
after an illness of four weeks.
Mr. Doty was born at Middieburg,

The C. F. College Concert.
We are rather tardy in making
mention of the concert given at the
C. F. College on the night of the lGth
inst., but the matter entirely escaped
our memory last week until after the
paper had gone to press. The concert
marked the close of the first five
months term of the session, and was
one of the pleasantest and most en
joyable ever given at that institution.
The music was of the highest order
(much of it as usual entirely out of
our reach,) and the recitations were
admirably rendered. The principal
feature was the Sword Drill, "Charge
of the Light Brigade," by the elocu
tion class, under the direction of Miss
Maggie Reed. The costumes were
very attractive, and the many varied
and intricate evolutions were execu
ted with the utmost correctness and
precision. It was a delightful enter
tainment throughout, and the large
audience present showed their hearty
appreciation by numerous encores.
esteem of all who knew him. He
had served for a number of years on
the board of Mayor and Aldermen,
and was always ready and willing to
aid any movement looking to the
advancement and prosperity of the
town. He was a gentle and affec
tionate husband and father, a kind
friend and a good neighbor. His
death is deplored by every one in
McMinnville, and the deepest sym
pathies of all go out to his afflicted
and stricken family.
