i Wednesday night at the Methodist
j Episcopal Ch arch, Sonth, occurred thc
j marriage of Miss Daisy Lee Hutche
I son, the charming daughter of former
j Senator F. M. Hutcheson, to Dr.
j Henry Mortimer Stuckeyj of Sumter,
j South Carolina.
The church was prettily decorated in
palms and river plants with strings of
simias twining the chandelieres and
bunches of white lilies and carnation
on the altar.
A little before the appointed hour
Miss Josie Smith, accompanied by
Mrs. Atkinson on the organ, sang
Reginald De Kovens' beautiful song,
"I Promise Thee." It was effectively
rendered, the cadenced words strik?
ing chords of sympathy in the hearts
of the hearers.
Promptly at 9 o'clock the Lohengrin
. wedding march heralded the arrival of
the bridal party. The ushers, Messrs.
Gr. A. Lemmon, J. H. Burns, of
Sumter, and P. M. Hutcheson, Jr.,
and S. A. Banks, came down opposite
aisles and formed a semi-circle around
the chancel; the maid of honor, Miss
Ethel Hutcheson, sister of the bride,
gowned in white organdi? over pink,
.and. carrying piiik. bride's maids
roses. Jed. the way down the, isle, fol?
lowed by the bride on the arm of her
father. They were met at the altar
by Dr. Stuckey, and his brother, i\fr.
George Stackey, who was his best
man. The bride wore a white gown
of moussiline de soie, over white
taffeta silk, trimmed elaborately with
exquisite poini lace. She carried a
shower bouquet of oride's roses and
maiden-hair fems. The ring ceremony
was performed by Rev. P. M. Thomas,
and while the words were being said
that bound these two lives together
the soft strains of "The Angels'
Serenade" added to the beauty of the
words, lending a sweet solemnity to
the occasion. After the service was
said they marc aed out while Mendels?
sohn wedding narch so full of memo?
ries of the past for some and of
prophesies of the future of others,
was being played. They were then
driven to the home of the bride, oh
Terrace Hill, where a reception was
given to a few of the bride's intimate
friends and relatives.-Henderson,
Ky., Daily Gleaner, May 4.
Death of Mr. Anthony White.
The people of this city generally feel
the serious loss sustained in the death
of Mr. Anthony White which occurred
last night at his residence on North
He has been very ill for some days,
but hopes had been entertained of his
recovery. So that his death comes to
many as a surprise. But death nearly
always comes that way ; no matter how
serious the illness or how slight the
chance of recovery.
Mr. White was born December 3rd,
1827 in Sumter District, where he has
spent the many years of his useful life.
He married Miss Elizabeth Dick,
daughter of the late Dr.v T. M. Dick.
Prior to the civil war he was engaged
in mercantile lines in Sumter, and was
the head of a very successful business.
In 1866 he established an Insurance
Agency, which grew and prospered
until he retired ![ast year from active
business Trarsuiis. HB enjoyed the
perfect confidence of his friends and
patrons, and his kind, generous deal?
ings held them to him with firmest
For two years 1880-1881, Mr. White
represented Sumter County in the
Legislature, where his wise counsels
and sound judgment gave him large
influence. He w,is well fitted by nat?
ural endowment and education for
higher positions of honor and trust,
but his modest, retiring nature would
nevei have permitted him to enter
into any contest or scramble for posi?
He was patriotic and loved his
mother State with, great devotion.
Whatever public service he rendered
was with high aEd honorable purpose,
without thought of self or personal
For about twenty years he has been
a member of the Board of Regents of
the,South Carolina Asylum for the In?
sane. His interest in this institution
was unbounded. During all the years
of his connection with its manage?
ment, he was never absent more than
two or three times from meetings of
For many years he has been an earn?
est, faithful member of the Presbyte?
rian Church. As in all other rela?
tionships, he here brought his powers
for the furtherance of all that was
good and true ; and nowhere else, save
in his own home, will he be more
greatly missed, more sincerely mourn?
ed than by his church. Liberally of
his means did he support the institu?
tions, and wisely of his clear head and
kind heart did he guide in her coun?
He, was elected e'der in 1S76 and
held*the office until death. He often
represented the church courts, and
was several times a delegate to the
As already intimated'Mr. White was
of a mdoest disposition and retiring
nature. But these characteristics
could not hide the. great intellect and
sterling worth of the man. His
friends knew him, trusted him im?
plicitly, and were never disappointed
in their expectations of him. His
four surviving children, Mr. Anthony
White, Jr., of New York, Dr. Leonard
White, of Statesville, X. C.. Misses
Mary and Adelaide White, of this city,
have the sincerest sympathy of many
relatives and a lanre circle of friends
who, likewise, mourn his death.
The funeral services will be held in
the Presbyterian ("burch at 10 o'clock
a. m., tomorrow.
Mr. Soule Mellen died today at his
home in Wedgefield, after two weeks ;
sickness. He was about forty three !
years old. A widow ann seven chil
dren are left to mourn his loss. Fun- ?

The many friends of Maj. J. L. ?
Coker, of Hartsv?le, will be grieved j
to learn that h^ was taken suddenly
and seriously ill Friday last with ap?
pendicitis. He was taken immediate?
ly in a private car to Richmond. Va.,
for treatment.-Baptist Courier.

Death of Rev. J. Thomas Pate, D. D.
Rev. J. Thomas Pate died in the city
of Florence, SC., on last Thursday
morning at 5 o'clock. Since last De?
cember, his friends knew he could not
live. That he resisted the enemy,
death, until today attested his vitality
and strong will power.
Dr. Pate was born in the city of
Sumter, S. C., June 27, 1856. Cra?
dled in a Christian home, his entire
life has been lived in Christ. He was
educated at Wofford College. As a
student in college, he was known ever
to stand for that which was pure and
righteous. Being licensed to preach,
in the Methodist Church, he joined
the South Carolina Conference in
1877. That he was a successful pastor
and preacher his appointments fully
attest. Careful always in the prepa?
ration of his sermons, sympathetic
and kind in his association with men,
and zealous for the advancement of
his Master's work, Dr. Pate was a
popular, preacher. Having a . body
racked with pain and frail withal, the
amount of work he did during his life
Our town was justly proud to give
to the "State such- a man as Dr. Pate.
The communitymourns the loss of one
of its best sons, and enters into sorrow
and sympathy with the bereaved wife
and each member of his family.
5 The funeral was held in Florence at
10:30 Friday morning, and the inter?
ment was also there.
The Funeral of Dr. Furman.
The funeral of Dr. John H Furman
which was held Thursday at Bethel
Church, Privateer, of which he hi?d
been a member for nearly fifty ye?rs,
was attended- by hundreds of his
friends and neighbors, by whom his
death- is felt as a personal loss. The
community in which Dr. Furman lived
and practiced his profession for so
many years owes much to his influence
and example, and his neighbors in
speaking of their departed friend
Thursday testified in the sincerest and
most feeling manner of their apprecia?
tion of his great ability as a physician
and his broad charity as a man and
At the conclusion of the services con?
ducted by Rev Louis J. Bristow, at the
request of one of the congregation the
casket was opened, and those present
gathered around for a last look at the
face of him whom they mourned.
There were a great many negroes pres?
ent and none showed more grief than
they for they realized that they had
lost a true and kind friend, a friend
who had been uniformly kind to them.
Mr. Fred S. Averill, son of Col.
J. H. Averill of Charleston, died yes?
terday morning at 10 o'colck. He was
stricken with appendicitis last Thurs?
day night. The doctors operated as
soon as they were satisfied of the na?
ture of*his|trouble, but it was even
then too late, for blood poison had set
in before the operation. \

the pupils of the Sumter School of

it forth in best shape. Miss Mary
Ewell will be here to assist, and all

MEMORIAL DAY EXERCISES.
An Eloquent Address Delivered by Mr.
D. C. Heyward.
The Memorial exercises at the Cem?
etery Friday afternoon were attend?
ed by a very large crowd. If a compa?
rison be made the opinion would be
hazarded that there were present quite
a number more than have been seen
on Memorial Day for several years
past. The flight of years'has no effect
upon the attendance on Memorial Day
exercises save to implant more deeply
in the hearts of the people of the
South the custom of assembling once
a year beside the graves of the Confed?
erate dead for the purpose of paying a
tribute to their memory. To the ma?
jority of those who now participate in
these exercises the war for southern
independence is not a part of their
personal experience, for the ranks of
the veterans who obre the heat and
burden of the sanguinary conflict
grow thinner each year, but a matter
of history and tradition, nevertheless
all who gather together to decorate
the graves of those who fell on the
firing line,are actuated by the same mo?
tives and are one in sentiment. They
all, old and young, honor and revere
the memory of the gallant dead who
liave slept in the silent bivouac of the
dead for more than thirty-seven years,
and their hearts swell, wi th pride at
the thought that their grand fathers
or fathers, or uncles or brothers Were
soldiers and patriots who gave their
lives and fortunes for the defence of
country. Time has assuaged the bit?
ter and hopeless grief and the heavy
sorrow that filled all hearts when the
soldiers' graves were new, and the
pride that the South now takes in the
imperishabiejfame won by the men who
wore the grey is only tempered by
sadness that the price paid for glory
was so great.
The order of exercises was as fol?

Music by Band.
While band plays, the children place

Introduction of orator by the presid?
ing officer, Mr. Altamont Moses
Oration by Mr. D. C. Heyward
Music by band.
Salute over graves by military.
The address by Mr. Heyward held
the undivided attention of the large
assemblage from first to last. The
address was eloquent, feeling and in
perfect harmony with the spirit of the
day and occasion. While paying all
due honor to the memory of the dead
its keynote was hope for the future
and it applied the lessons drawn from
the past to the needs and duties of the
present hour. The address was worthy
of the theme and it is to be regretted
that it is impossible to reproduce it in
full, Mr. Hey ward .speaking from
brief notes only. However, those who
heard his eloquent and feeling words
have an indellible impression ?of the
high and patriotic sentiments to which
he gave utterance that will not fade
Ju returning my thanks to the mem?
bers of the Sumter Democratic Con?
vention for their kind endorsement of
my candidacy for Secretary of State.
I wish to assure them that it is not
an act of formal politeness, but that
it comes from the depths of a sincere
and grateful heart, and I humbly trust
that ho act of mine in the future will
cause any member of the convention
to regret having given me their en?
dorsement. Respectfully, '
