arrived yesterday morning.
Vicksburg Herald April 2nd: A
quiet, happy wedding was that
which took place at 8 o'clock last
night at the well known residence of
Mr. Ben Gnuider, Sr., on Cherry street.
The parties to the contract were Miss
Helen Guider, youngest daughter of
Mr. Ben Guider, and Dr. W. B. Pierce,
a very prominent and successful young
physician of Lake Providence. The
ceremony was performed by Rev. Dr.
H. Sausom, rector of Christ Church, in
his usual impressive manner.
While it was known among the
intimate frienda of these popular
young people that they were betrothed,
their marriage last night, to all but a
few of these, came as a surprise. The
marriage had been arranged to take
place after Easter, but the prospective
groom happening along in advance of
that time, plead his suit to such good
purpose that to resist was out of the
question, and as a reward for his zeal
and assiduity the terms of surrender
were completely in his favor.
Miss Guider is one of Vicksburg's
most charming and popular young
ladies, and in winning her for his
bride Dr. Pierce has shown admirable
choice and one upon which he is in
line for hearty oougratrlations. Dr.
Pierce is no stranger in Vicksburg,
having lived here formerly and prac
ticed as an interne at the Charity

almost up to the hour of the ceremony.
I)r. and Mrs. Pierce left by the south
bound train this morning for New Or
leans, where after a brief honeymoon
they return to Lake Providence.
The Herald unites with many
friends in best wishes to this happy
pair on their journey through life.
The Doctor stole a clean march on
us, not even taking his most intimate
friends into the secret. Dr. Pierce is
a popular gentleman and stands high
in our community. The B.-D. ex
tends hearty congratulatious and good
In another column we publish an
article on the"Springfield Confederate
Monument," and it is hoped that our
citizens will send in a small contri.
bution to Mrs. White and Mrs. Purdy,
who will accept it with thanks. Mr.
T. IH. Cox and Mr. Geo. M. Jones,
Treasurer of' the Monument Commit
tee, are two of the most prominent
titizens of Springfield, who have taken
great interest in the movement to
erect a monument to our Confederate
dead. It is-no small undertaking, but
these gentlemen will soon see their
labors crowned with grand success
when on the 10th of August next the
monument will be unveiled. Not only
have they done this, but with others
who loved the memory of the "lost
cause," kept up a home for old Con
federates and an orphanage for the
fatherless and motherless children.
The expense of keeping these up was
met almost by the private means of
these gentlemen, which speaks in the
highest praise for them; and they ask
only a small mite from each one to
pay for this monument, which can be
done, it each person will only con
tribute a small amount.
The Best Resaedy for Rheumatism.
QUICK RELIEF FROM PAIN.
All who use Chamberlain's Pain
Balm for rheumatism are delighted
with the quick relief from pain which
it affords. When speaking of this Mr.
D. N. Sinks, of Troy, Ohio, says:
"Sometime ago I had a severe attack
of rheumatism in my arm and bshoul
der. I tried numerous remedies but
got no relief uutil I was recommended
by Mesers. Gee. F. Parsons & Co.,
druggists of this place, to try Cham
berlain's Pain Balm. They recom
mended it so highly that I bought a
bottle. I was soon relieved of all pain.
I have since recommendedt this lini
ment to many of my friends, who
agree with me that it is the best
remedy for muscular rheumatism in
the market." For sale at J. S. Gue

Covered by U. S. Patents.
Admittedly the BEST light on the market and
the most economical.
The Imperial burns common store gasoline and gives a
100 candle power light at a cost of one
cent per day.
One Gallon will burn 60 hours.
The needle keeps the burner clean, so it will not clog, and
the generating tube being in center of flame, insures a light
that will not go out. There is no odor, no smoke and no
flicker. The light can be raised or turned down just as with
a gas jet or lamp. THE IMPERIAL is the most perfect light
on the market and everything pertaining to it is the best to
be had. IT WILL PAY TO INVESTIGATE.
