WHAT IS IT?
A strange animal has made its
appearance in the locality between
Sawyers' Mills and Holladay, and
those who have seen it do not agree
as to what the'animal really is.
Alvin Higdon, who succeeded in
getting a close inspection of the
animal while passing along the
road near the home of Jack Cole,
describes it as tawny color, with
dark spots on its side.
Some are inclined to think that
it is an escaped leopard from some
of the shows that passed through
West Tennessee last fall. Others
believe it is a wildcat, as this ani
mal is sometimes found along Big
Sandy River. Again, it may be a
wolf. Anyway, it has made war
on the dogs of that locality, killing
every one that crosses its path.
' FRTKR-MILAM. -
A unique marriage occurred at
Yuma on . Christmas eve. Henry
Fryer, who represented Carroll
and Henry Counties in the State
senate during the heated charter
fight three years ago, but who now
resides in Missouri, was at Yuma
during the Christmas festivities,
and was prevailed upon to perform
the functions of Santa Claus at the
Christmas tree entertainment for
children. During the festivities
Mr. Fryer and Miss Ida Milam,
who taught elocution at Benton
Seminary last year, were united in
marriage, to the surprise of those
present. The occasion was one of
much merriment, and after all was
over Mr. and Mrs. Fryer departed
for their home in Missouri.
One of the happy events during
the holidays in the hustling town
of Big Sandy was the marriage of
Hon. J. T. Peeler of Huntingdon
and Miss Luna Hastings. The
marriage ceremony was solemniz
ed at the home of the bride's par
ents, Mr. and Mrs. J. W.' Hastings,
Thursday evening of last week in
the presence of relatives and a few
chosen friends. The bride, who is
a highly accomplished and charm
ing young lady, formerly resided
aVHuntingdon, where she first met
