that such matter in excess of ten lines
was chargeable, at the same rate as
advertising?one dollar per square,

We now extend the limit to twenty
lines. All obituaries exceeding this
limit must be paid for at said rate.

A BEAUTIFUL WEDDING.
Lan.ens Loses to Seneca one of her
most Charming Daughters.
A very beautiful wedding look place
in the city at noon on Wednesday last,
by which Miss Bmmie Jones, the at
tractive and popular daughter of Mr.
w. W. Jones, beoame the wife of Dr,
E. C. Doyle, of Seneca. The marriage
took place iii. the home of the bride in
the presence of relatives and intimate
friends, Key. Robert Adams, of the
Presbyterian church, officiating, The
bridal party came in to Mendlcsohn's
ever inspiring march rendered by
Miss Caro Adams and after passing
through gates of ribbon, held ajar by
Misses Willie and Untie Jones, Bessie
Todd and Samuel Fleming, took their
positions for the ceremony.
Misses Josephine Minter, Kmmic
Meng, A11 if Webb and Louise Fleming,
the bridesmaids entered first, followed
by the groom with his brother and best
man, Dr. W. K. Doyle, and lastly by
the bride upon the arm of her sister,
Miss Connie Jones, the maid of honor.
The bride wore a becoming traveling
gown of blue, combined most effect
ively with while broadcloth and jet
and carried a bouquet of white hya
cinth and maiden hair fern. The
bridesmaids and "best girl" wore
handsome street costumes and formed
a group unusual for beauty and grace
Dr. and Mrs. Doyle took the train at
1.80 o'clock for a weddings trip to ter
minate at their home in Seneca. Dr.
and Mrs. Jones, of Greenville, Mr. and
Mrs. Doyle, of Seneca. Dr. and Mrs. O.

Judge K. C. Watts.
Some days ago our people were pleas
ed with a visit from this popular ju
rist, who always receives a warm wel
come from his old friends and former
companions. Probably no Judge Oil
the Bench has been more attentive to
his duties or more wise and just in his
rulings than has Judge Watts, and we
believe the General Assembly will al
most universally endorse Judge Watts
at the present session, and in so (hung
reflect the will of the people generally.
Comparatively a stranger to some of
our people in a few sections of the
Stale when first elected to the Bench,
Judge Watts is by no means a stranger
to the nubile now, and no man is more
generally esteemed, not only for his
judicial wisdom and learning, hut for
his congeniality and convivial nature,
also. The honored representatives of
the peopleof the Slate made no mistake
when they honored Judge Watts by
placing him on the Bench, and he in
turn has honored South Carolina. We
cannot conceive of a quality more en
titled to endorsement than that of du
ty ably and conscientiously performed,
which to-day stands to the credit of
Judge Watts. Now let the General
Assembly honor themselves by honor
ing a worthy son of a worthy Stale.?
