For weeks past our little city has
been on the "qui vive" for the ap
proaching nuptials of Dr. Alfreil
Iu me, of the University of Missis-
sippi, and Miss Mary Hill Ritchey,
only daughter of Dr. and Mrs. J. JJ.
Ritchey, of McMinnville, which
happy event occurred on Wednes-
day evening at u:su. me unue,
eaning on the arm of the groom, en
tered the handsomely decorated par-
ors, accompanied by Dr. and Mrs. J.
R. Ritchey and Mr. and Mrs. Win.
Iume, parents of the bride and
groom, the niy attendants, in.
Stainback, in an unusually impres
sive manner, united the future des
tinies of these two so well worthy of
each other. Dr. Hume, although a
young man, is Professor of Mathe
matics in the University of Missis
sippi, a position which a man of
twice his years should feel proud to
till. Miss Mary has always been con
sidered by her legion of friends and
admirers as tho one indispensable
member of our Mountain City society.
Ier many qualities of heart and
mind have endeared her to all who
know her, and while we extend to
ier and her happy husband our
leartiest congratulations and best
wishes for ilower strewn paths in the
future, we can't help but heave a
sign of regret at losing her.
A reception was given them im
mediately after the ceremony, which
whs in perfect keeping with every
thing else in her hospitable home.
"Recherche," elegant and substantial
was the supper, and from 8 to 10 con
gratulations were showered on them
by their numerous friends. Bright
smiles and handsome costumes were
reflected from plate glass mirrors ami
the walls echoed and re-echoed with
happy laughter. The presents were
many and beautiful, being substan
tial evidence of the esteem in which
she is held both at home and abroad.
They were by far the richest and
most elegant that McMinnville has
ever seen. There were present irom

Tiie Ladies' Home Journal.
Over 700,000 women in this coun-
try alone now buy and read each
month The Ladies Home Journal,
and a study of the January number,
just to hand, shows at once why the
Journal is so popular. It is in com
plete touch with a woman's best
needs, and covers everything in her
life. No magazine covers its special
field so thoroughly, and in such a
fresh and capable manner. Mrs.
Burton Harrison, for example, is
selected to write of "Social Life In
New York" than which there could
save been no better choice. "Wine
on Fashionable Tables," whether its
use is increasing or decreasing, is dis
cussed by such royal entertainers and
diners-out as Chauncey M. Depew,
ex-President Hayes, Madame Rom
ero, Mrs. ex-Secretary Whitney,
George W. Child and others. In
the series of "Unknown Wives of
Well-Known Men" we have the first
portrait of Mrs. John Wannamaker
ever printed, and a sketch, while
"Clever Daughters of Clever Men"
presents Ethel Ingalls, the pretty
daughter of ex-Senator Ingalls. All
through the number there is a sense
of originality and brightness which
copes with honest practical advice
and helpfulness. The Journal is
only one dollar per year, and i,
needless to say, fully worth it. Pub
lished by the Curtis Publishing Com
pany of Philadelphia.
