For s ?me time past the matrimonial
m.irket has been very dull in our town,
but on yesterday a fresh impulse was given
to it, two marriages bring celebrated in
the afternoon.
Miss Mary C Mil!er.di,uiihter ot Kobt.A.
Miller' wi s married to Mr. John P.
Spiaoher at o'clock p.m. The marriage

day afternoon at 3 o'clock, the contracting |
I parties being Miss Sallie J. Surface,
I daughter of Geo. It. Surface, and James
I B. fierce a member of the Tazewell Hard?
ware Company. The ceremony took
place in the parlors of the Central Hotel

Hattie Surface was maid of honor and Dr.
David Pierce was best man. Mr. Shell
Surface gave the bride away. The bridal
couple took the east boundtraiuat4,30p.m.

Circuit Court Adjourned on Saturday.
When we went to press last week the
will ease of Gillespie vs. Peery was then in
progress, the trial of same having com?
menced on Wednesday, the '-'1st. It was
not concluded until Saturday at 11 o'clock
a. m., when the jury came in and reported
that it could not agree, whereupon it ? Avas
discharged by the judge. This case was
very hotly and ably contested by both
sides. Mrs. Mary Aim Gillespie, the con?
testant of the will, was represented by
Messrs. Chapman & Gillespie and Henry
& Graham, while the propounder of the
will, Mr. Henry T. Peery, was represented
by A. J. ? S. D. May,- F. S. Blair and V.
L. Sexton. The parties in interest are
largely connected in the community, and
the result was that the court house was
filled during the trial with a large and in?
terested audience. Nearly fifty witnesses
were put upon the stand.
The case was very forcibly argued by
Mr. Chapman and .Major Henry for Mrs.
Gillespie, and Mr. S. D. May and Gapt. F.
s. Blair for Mr. Peery.
The trial having resulted in a hung jury,
there v.ill necessarily be another trial at
the next term of the court.
The Browning-S. W. Va. improvement Co
Case.
On last Saturday morning Judge Jack?
son passed upon the motion to dissolve the '
injunction in the case of James S. Brown- j
ing vs The Southwest Va. Improvement
Company. The motion had been ably
argued by Col. May, Judge Pulton and
Mr. 1). 11. Smith for the Company, and by
Judge S. C. Graham and Judge S. C.
Williams for the defendant. After due
consideration the court decided not to dis
i solve the injunction upon the motion made
but to continue it for a hearing upon its
merits.
We suppose the parties will now go to
work taking depositions and making
preparations lor a full hearing as soon as
the same can be obtained. The case is
one of great importance to both the parties
concerned and will be contested with all
the force that can possibly be employed.
An emission.
In our report of the proceedings of the
circuit court last week we failed to report
one of the most important cases heard in
the court during the term, that ofJ. W.
Chapman, receiver, vs. Virginia Real Es?
tate and Investment Company. The con?
troversy was over a subscription to the
West Graham Land and Improvement
Company, and involved $7,059. The trial
lasted live days and ivas hotly contested.
The jury brought in a verdict on Monday,
the 19th inst., for the plaintiff, for the
above named sum. A motion was made
by the defendant to set aside the verdict
as contrary to the law and evidence and
the court granted the motion, setting aside
the verdict and granting a new trial to the
defendant.
Plaintifr was represented by Messrs.
Chapman <? Gillespie and Henry & Gra?
ham and the defendant by A. J. & S. D.
May and Judge Jno. H. Eulton.

SEVENTY-EIGHTH ANNIVER?
SARY OF ODD FELLOWSHIP
Observed by Dluegrass Lodge
No. 142.
A STREET PARADE,
Followed by Fxercises at Town Hall in
Afternoon?Reception at 8 O'clock
at Night.
According to announcement, Bluegrass
Lodge, No. 142, I. 0. O. F. celebrated the
seventy-eighth anniversery of Odd Fel?
lowship in the United States, on the 26th
ir.st. The day was bright and beautiful
and everything seemed to conspire to
make the celebration a success. At 3 o'clock
the members of the lodge assembled at
their ball and formed behind the laeger
Concert Baud. There were about thirty
members in line and they macbed west
from the hall on Main street to a point
opposite Dr. Nye's, where they turned and
marched east along same street to a point
opposite Dr. Huflbrd's, where they
turned and marched back to the town hall.
There the very interesting programme
which was published in our last issue was
fully carried out. The ceremonies were
impressive md were enjoyed by the mem?
bers of the order as well as visitors who
graced tiie occasion with their presence
Bevs. W. 1). Buekner, J. N. Harman and
J. A. Campbell made brief, but excellent
addresses. The subjects were, respectively,
"Odd Fellowship?What is it?," "Friend?
ship and Brotherly Love," ami "Universal
Love."
The hymns were led by a choir composed
cf Mrs. Walton and Mrs. Hargrave and
Messrs. Walton and E. L. Greever, in the
singing of which the lodge joined. After
the exercises were concluded the lodge
reformed and marched to the hall,preceded
by the band.
At 8 o'cock at night a very delightful
reception was given at the town hall. A
number of lady ami gentlemen guests had
been invited, who attended, and the wives
and daughters of tue member of the ledge
were out in full force. An excellent musical
programme was rendered by an ochestra
composed of Miss. Alice Alexander,
pianist; Messrs W. II. Alderson, violinist;
W. II. Kelly, first cornet; T. J. Under,
second cornet, and Fiank Kilts, trombone;
and the laeger Concert Band.
The hail had been aristically decorated
and tables arranged by a committee of
'adies composed of Mrs. II. W. Pobst and
Misses Julia and Patty I^indon, Mollie
Boonc, Nellie Huflbrd, Etta and May
Flank ins and Narcissa Pendleton. The
table arrangements were especially pretty
and reflected great credit upon the ladies
who arranged them so tastefully in such a
small space of lime. About one hundred
could ! e seated. There was an abundance
of ice cream, cake in great variety, fruits
and candies. After these had been
served to the guests coffee was brought in.
Bev. J. N. Harman ivas called upon to
speak and made quite an entertaining
talk. At about J lo'clock the crowd broke
up,tte verdict of all beintr, the affair was a
success and Odd Fellowship a good thing.
Services for Pocahorrtas Odd Fellows.
On last Sunday night, special services
were held at the Episcopal church at Poca
hontas for the Odd Fellows. The mem?
bers of Focahontas Lodge, No. US", and
Laurel Creek Encampment, No. 17, at?
tended in a body. There were about fifty
men present in the regalia of the order.
Services were opened with the hymn "Cor?
onation" and closed with the hymn
"Blessed be the Tie that Binds." The
congregation was large, the house being
pacKcd. The sermon was preached by
Bev. W. I). Buekner, who took for his
text, Luke 10, 37. The same line of
thought was pursued as in the sermon re?
cently preached by Bev. Buekner to Blue
gran Lodge, No. 142. The sermon has
been very highly spoken of.
Religious.
The sermon preached in the Methodist
church on last Sunday night by Bev. I. P.
Martin deserves a word of comment as well
as of praise. Not often is a subject: of that
kind dealt with so forcefully. It was an
encouragement to weak and faltering
Christians, and it was also a severe rebuke
to those who sneer at Christianity on ac?
count of the frailties which exist in the
Christian Church. The following thoughts,
in part, were suggested to the writer from
the discourse:
Human nature is much the same today
as it was when the first church or society
was organized, which was, as the writer
believes, in one of the tents of the Patri?
arch Abraham, and possibly is the only
society on record organized by the Crea?
tor himself. If we study carefully that
part of sacred history in the Old Testa?
ment which refers to God's visible Church,
nowhere will we find perfection, or will we
lind it either in the Christian Church,
which appears to have had its first organi?
zation shortly after the day of penlicost;
and in carefully studying the religious
status of these the first societies or churches,
they were undoubtedly further from the
standard of New Testament teaching than
are the Ctiristian churches of this age. To
go back?Is it to be supposed that Abra?
ham's household, which consisted of sev?
eral hundred individuals, were all men of
God as was Abraham, and yet they all be?
came members of this first society or
church. A pertinent question from some
would be: Why did not God create or
demand a perfectly pure and holy church
at the genesis? One among the answers
may be given: The human family were
created with a choice to do good or evil,
and this choice exists and remains in man's
life until the spirit leaves this world;* if
otherwise, then there would be no honor
or dignity or heroism in the church of God.
We know that the Apostle Paul speaks of
Christ as "presenting to himself a glorious
church, not having spot or wrinkle or any
such thing, but that it should be holy and
without blemish," but this, I believe, re?
fers to the last millennium of the Christian
centuries. If the writer's premises are
tenable, then why should the unconverted
:wel
ELL, VA., TH?RS
world demand of the church more than the
Author of the church expects?
These expressed thoughts are not given
to palliate, or excuse, or as an apology for
the inconsistencies of professing Christians,
but rather to oiler to view what may be
reasonably expected from God's outward
and visible Church in this "wicked and
adulterous generation." G. 13.

GR/ECO-TURKISH WAR.
The Greeks Successful at Some Points.
but Beaten at Others.
The press dispatches give us details of
what is going on in the Giaxo-Turkish
War. The Greeks have been driven back
from their position on the Thessalian
frontier and have been suffering reverses
every day during the past week. They
had to retreat from their second position
at Larissa, and another stand has been
made at Pharsalia. The Greeks are
fighting stubbornly, and if defeated at
Pharsalia will retreat to the celebrated
pass of Thermopyler, where a tinal des?
perate struggle will be made against the in?
vading Turks.
The inclinations are that the superior
training of the Turkish soldiers and
superior generalship are prevailing and
that Greece wdl have to bow in defeat.
