by his professors and fellow students.

"The Burglar" is the attraction Friday
night at the opera house. The play
will be presented by C. Win Perkins'
excellent comp~n y, which includes the

Briscoe. The plot of "The Burglar"
is simple, and the sentiment pervading
it is touching and tenderly path. tic,
with just enough dash of humor to
take off the sombreuess of the story.
The New York iSun says it is a positive
fact t bat more ladies and children have
been entertained and delighted with
"The Burglar" than with any other
play of recent years.
Mr. Thomas, the author of the play,
is a Southerner who has distinguished

A HOME WEDDING.
The Nuptials of Mr. Henry G. Meyer and
Mips Ursula .ollison.
The' marriage of Miss Ursula Rollison, of this
city, to 31r. Henry G Mleyer, of Grand Rapids,
Mich., was solemnized Wednesday evening at 9
o'clock by Rev. Dr Stokes, of the Methodist
Church. It was a delightful home affair, and
one of the most pleasant of these events of the
season. Everything was arranged with that sim
ple. delicate taste that characterizes the abodes of
ideal Southern hospitality.
The parlor was decorated with white and yel
low chrysanthemums and festoored with ivy.
An alcove of beautiful flowers, ferns, palms and
ivy formed a bower of beauty which a full-length
mirror in the background reflected with soft ra
diance, and added grace and charm to the bru
nette loveliness of the bride, who, with the
partner of her choice, plighted their troth be
neath the marriage bell. The bride was ar
raved in white bengoline 'ith trimmings of
white silk and rich brocade ribbon, enveloped in
a bridal veil and carrying a bouquet of white
crysanthemums with flowing ribbons, and lean
ing on the arm of him who had elected her to be
the queen of his heart and home. 1-he never ap
peared to better advantage to friends who circled
about them in a sea of smiles, wishing them a
bright and happy future.
After the ceremony, supper was served in the
diniag-room, which was decorated with yellow
flowers anid festooned with ivy. The central table
was the centre of attraction, with its great num
ber of lovely bridal cakes, pyramids of fruit,
mingled with bright flowers, glossy orange
leaves and delicious creams. This was sup
planted by smaller tables of equal beauty, and
was enjoyed by every one.
The bride was the recipient of many handsome
presents of china, cnt glass, silver, bric-a-brac,
table linen, etc. Among these was one much ad
mired-an exquisitely decorated monogram cake,
the gift of Mrs. Dr. Gilder, which has been sent
to the parents of the groom.
The only attendants were' Miss Carrie Rolli
son and Mr. C. J. Purcell

she had taken the ruinous so-ad Blood

put under the P. P. P., she immediately began
to Improve and Is now in as good health as
ever in her life. You can refer to me at any

The Teaebers' Association will meet
in the Graded School building at 10 30
a. m. on Saturday, December 8th.
The following programme will be
The primary section will discuss
"From the easy to the difficult," open.
ed by Prof. A. G. Voigt; followed by
Miss Carrie Godfrey.
The intermediate section will -give
attention to the topic, "Plays and ex
ercise of children,'' by Mrs. Jane Long,
followed by Mrs. M. L. Farrow.
The general division will consider
the subject, "Some necessary school
regulations," by Prof. Frank Evans.
The following outline is merely sug
gestive of the preparation that should
be made by each member of the asso
ciation before coming to the meeting:
"From the Easy to the Difficult"
State the difference between apprehen
sion and comprehension; What is
"easy"-what is "difficult to the child?
Dwell on each of the three steps from
the easy to the difficult, (1) the prepar
ation of the child's mind for the appre
b-ension of new ideas; (2) apprehension;
(3) comprehension; By making appre
bension the basis ofiteachi-g, show that
we necessarily proceed frum the simple
to complex, from the near to the re
mote, and from the easy to the difficult.
Some necessary rules and regula
tions.-Discuss: Getting ready for
work; Is it a fact that bright surround
ings tend to brighten work? Tell what
might be done with very little expense
to enliven the general aspect of the
schoolroom. Prove: Cleanliness is con
ducive to order. Show that cleanlinees
promotes industry. Prove: (a) The
condition of the school-room is a sure
indication of the mental qualities of
the teacher; (b) A teacher who, having
eyes, is yet unable to recognize unmis
takable evidences of untidiness and
carelessness, needs instruction, needs
it badly, needs it at once; (c) cleanli
ness, if not next to godliness, is certain
ly characteristic of civilized life.
All are earnestly requested to be
