wedding bells merrily pealed forth at
the residence of Mr. John Knight, near
Gray Court. The contracting parties
were Miss Mollie Blanche Knight and
Mr. Clyde M. Curry. The officiating
minister was Rev. M. T. Wharton.
The bride, ever lovely, was even
more bewitchingly so, on this occa
sion, beautifully attired in a cream
trousseau. The bride is a daughter
of one of the most prominent families
of the Green 'Pond section.
The froom is a son of Mr. Miller
Curry one of the most highly cultured
and respected citizens of this commun

qualities, standing very prominent In
Imnmediately after the ceremony the
bridal party left for the home of the

Airs. Nickels, ably assisted by
friends in the neighborhood, had ar
ranged to entertain the "Little Social
Club" of which Mr. Nickels is a pop
ular member, Mr. Nickels being an in
nocent victim of the plan. So success
fully had the secret been kept that he
did not even suspect anything of the
kind until the guests began to arrive.

ABJBEVILLE AFTER TROLLEY.
Big Meeting to be Heid In Interest of
Abbevillo, Feb. 27.--A big railroad
meeting has been called to be held
in Abboville on March 4th next, when
plans will be completed and money
raised for the building of the first
section of the *I'asley to Abbeville
railroad. All the stores and manu
factuiring plants are going to *be
closed for the day, and every business
man in Anderson and all elsewhere
interested in the project, will be asked
to be .present.
Between $75,000 and $100,000 will
be raised, all of which will go to the
building of the line between Abbeville
The .peopJe of Antreville and along
the route between there and Abbeville
are going ahead, too, to raise their
pro rata share in order to meet the Ab
beville men half way.
It has boon suggested, and the cir
porators have been favorably impress
sd, that all the money raised in a city
for the road should be spent on the
line being built out of the city in
which it is subscribed. For instance,
If Abbeville raides $100,000 all of this
mnoney should be spent on building the
road eiut of Abbevilie, and in that way
the various towns will be benefited
hemselves by their own contributions.
