On last evening at the First Baptist
Church the marriage of Mr. Henry
Green Hill, and Miss Lucy Graham
waa solemnized. Their's was a beau?
tiful wedding. The church was love?
ly; the interior being entirely white,
it lent itself to the decorations, and
gave to them a purity and beauty that
was truly exquisite. A profusion of
ferns and palms rendered the scene
a symphony in white and green.
The wedding march was played by
Prof. Schumacher and Mrs. Rodgers.
For about a half hour before the cere?
mony they entertained the audience
with the sweetest music. At half
past eight o'clock the bridal party
came in to the strains of the wedding
march. Miss Edith Rice, a lovely
young girl, dressed in a soft, clinging
costume of blue, opened the gates
through which they passed. From
each of tho three aisles, the ushers
marched and grouped themselves in
front of the chancel. The groom with
his best man, Mr. E. Scott Carson,
entered from the right door of the
church, and stood ready to meet his
bride at the altar. Miss Annie
Graham, the maid of honor, came
down the center aisle. She was
gowned in white and carried American
beauty rosm After her came the
bride on the arm of her uncle, Mr.
W. M. Graham. She wore an exquis?
ite gown of white and carried a bou?
quet of bride's roses. The ceremony
was performed by Dr. C. C. Brown
who was issisted by the Rev. T.
After the solemn vows were plighted
the bridal party returned to tb? home

original pen ar,d ink drawing by the

volume and the poems and prose ar?

All of last week the trains
passing through this city were
crowded with college boys and girls
on their way home from the collegee

State. In the matter of colleges the
eastern and southern parts of the
State are a long ways behind the
Piedmont section and it is high time
that the people of the eastern counties
unite to secure a college or two.
The scarcity and high price of chick?
ens shDuld be an incentive to some
one to ostablish a poultry farm to raise
chickens for market. Every effort
heretofore made in this vicinity to
establiiih a poultry farm has come to
grief, because the promoters under?
took to raise fancy chickens exclu?
sively and had none to sell save ata
fancy price. It would have been akin
to sacrilege to kill and eat one of the
bino blooded feathered aristocrats
raised at grdat cost on Sumter soil.
What is needed is a farm that will
raise c Dickens for the market and not
fancy stock that the owners come to
look upon as members of the familv.
There ought to be a good margi-i of
profit in chickens now when baby
chickens are selling for twrnty cents
FIRE AT THE COFFINTACTORY.
! Fire Department Prevents a Serious
Conflagration This Morning.
Policeman Pierson discovered that
the boiler shed of the Sumter Lumber
Co. mill was on fire Monday morning
at 1 o'clock and gave the alarm at
once. There was a few minutes delay
in getting the alarm sent to the reel
bouses by telephone and it was fully
ten minutes from the time the fire was
discovered to the arrival of the hose
wagons. But the firemen went to
work with a will when they arrived,
and the fire was quickly extinguished.
The boiier shed was burned, but the
good work of the firemen was in pre?
venting tbe spread of the fire to the
lumber piles, dry kilns and other
buildings. The mill is situated on the
lot of the Witherspoon coffin factory
and quite near to several of the large
buildings of this concern. The loss is
estimated to be not more than $75,
unless the boilers were damaged by
the heat, and this cannot be determin?
ed until they have been inspected by
an expert. The boilers are valued at
$2,500 and the loss on them may be

Myrtle Beach Hotel. This new but
already popular resort is situated on
one of the finest beaches on the At?

The agitation started more than a
year ago to bring about the enlarge?
ment of Turkey Creek canal at the ex?
pense of the city seems to have reciv
ed its quietus, for* the time being,
from the special committee of Council
appointed to investigate the matter.
This committee made a thorough in?
spection of the canal, and after giving
the matter careful consideration, came
to the decision that all that was nec?
essary to be done and all that was
wise or pacticable was that the pres?
ent canal be cleaned out. This was
ordersd done and the work is now
nearing completion. The committee
found that it would be possible to
obtain a fall of only one inch to the
hundred yards and that to widen the
canal as proposed would aot improve
conditions at all, but would probably
have the contrary effect in so far as
the health of the city is concerned.
The committee is of the opinion that
if it becomes necessary f to increase
the drainage capacity of the canal it
will be better to cut. a new canal
across the Southern pert of the city
from the old canal and divert the
drainage from the Dingle Mill route
into tbe ditches now leading to
Green Swamp, the fall being far
greater-something like twenty-five
feet-to Green Swamp than to Din?
.? None of the State offices will have
opposition this year, except Railroad
Commissioner Garris, and if the num?
ber of eager aspirants for his job is
an indication of anything it is that
the office seekers regard it as the best
job of all. Since there will be no
fight over the offices, the campaign
will be a tame affair and the candi?
dates will attend few of the meetings.
The first meeting of the campar?n
being held in this city we shall proba?
bly have the largest turn-out of candi?
dates of any of the meetings and those
who are curious to see the whole ag
g rea ti on should come to Sumter.
