Six children, two sisters and many
friends are b ft to mourn his death.

Mist Bessie Wood Tate were united

beautiful and impressive ceremony.
The church was filled wilh rela
tives and friends, and was tastefully
decorated in green and white.
At the appointed hour, to the
sweet strains of Lohengrin, the
bridal party entered. The ushers,
Messrs. Neil Holt and Nathaniel
Mitchell, of Memphis, preceded
the maid of houor. Miss Mattye
Cochrane, who was followed by the
bride, leaning upon the arm of her
brother, Mr. Knox Tate. They
were met by the groom and his best
man, Mr. Robert Boyd, a brother
from Washington, (who entered
from the vestry room) at " the foot
of the chaucel steps, where the
betrothal was said, after which the
couple ascended the steps to the
altar ra:ling tor the completion oi
the ceremony. The party left the
church in reverse order to that in
which it entered, Mendelssohn s
march being played as a recessional.
The groom is a son of Mr. Alfred
Boyd, one of the most popular citi
zens and prosperous planters of Tip
ton County. He is a young man of
sterling worth, honorable, manly,
of courteous demeanor, fii e busi
ness qualifications and is held in

The Enterprise dislikes to appear
neutral in the matter of the selection
of a United Slates Senator, and at
the same time does not aspire to the
role of fighting strenuously withiu
party ranks, yet we cannot refrain
from enlisting as favoring Gen.
Win. B. Bale to succeed himself.
His record as a citizen, soldier,
crovernor and senator has been clean
and honorable to ihe letter, and
while his whole course has probably
not been as aggressive as some of
his colleagues, yet he has been firm
in his convictions, conservative in
his actions and true to his party and
people He is . now on the shady
side of life, and we are not in favor
of kicking him out of office, just
because age has whitened his locks
and made him less vigorous than in
former years. We jre for Bate as
long s he wants ihe place, and we
feel that Lauderdale county dem
ocracy will prove faithful to the
gallant old war horse. Lauderdale
