What promises to be one of tho
most enjoyable events which will
take placo during tho holidays will
be the supper given by tho ladies
!of the Cumberland Presbyterian
Church at the court house Wednes
day evening December 31, 1890,
for the benefit of the church. The
adies of Camden know how to do
tho right thing, at tho right time,
and in tho right way. The people
of Camden never do anything by
halves, and preparations are being
made to make it the crowning event
of the holiday season.
One of the most notable wed
dings of tho season occurred last
Tuesday evening at G o'clock, at
the Methodist Episcopal Church,
South. The contracting parties
were Mr. U. A. Potts, traveling
salesman for Messrs. Johanboeko
k Sons, of Louisville, and Miss
Mattie Stigall, eldest daughter of
Mr. H. F. Stigall, vice president
of the Camden Bank and Trust
Company. The marriage ceremo
ny, which was very impressive, was
performed by Rev. C. C. Bell, of
Gleason, in tho presenco of a large
number of relatives and friends.
The attendants were Mr. AV. L
Morris, of Big Sandy, and Mis3
Fannie Travis, Mr. J. L. Holland,
of Paris, and Miss Dora Stigall,
and Mr. AVillie Caraway, of Big
Sandy, and Miss Evora Steele
Mrs. II. AV. Mannon rendered
the wedding march. The church
presented a very attractive scene,
a large floral and evergreen arch
being erected in front of the chan
cel beneath which the marriage
vows were solemnly plighted. The
building was crowded to its utmost
capacity, which testified to the pop
ularity of the young couple enter
ing upon their new voyage in life.
Mr. Potts and his charming bride
are well known here and have many
friends who wish them a happy
and prosperous journey through
life together. The left for Big
