March 2nd, Mr. Sam Nesbit and Miss
Daisy Belle Davis were united in the
holy bonds of matrimony by Rev. W
T. Dale, witnessed by Messrs. John
Shannon, Mitch Butts and the bride's
cousin. Miss Annie Davis. The mar
riace was kept a secret, and the bride
groom remained, to the appearance of
all others, a sweetheart and made his
calls as usual. On April the 15th a few
relatives and friends assembled at the
bride's home to witness, as they
thought, a marriage; but to their sur
prise Rev. Nolan, instead of saying the
ceremony, announced that they were
already man and wife. Rev. W. T. Dale

What use is there in eating when food
does you no good in fact, when it does
you more harm than. good, for such is
the case if it Is not digested? If you
have a loathing for food there is no use
of forcing it down, for it will not be di
gested. You must restore the digestive
organs to their natural strength and
cause the food to be digested, when Bn
appetite will come, and with it a relish
of food. The tired, languid feeling will
give place to vigor and energy; then
you will put llesh on your bones and
become strong. The Shaker Digestive
Cordial as made by the Mount Lebanon
Shakers contains food already digested
and is adiaoster of food as well. Its ac

Mr. Nesbit returning to his home that

that they were married. On last

quite a number of their relatives and
friends to the residence of the bride's
father, to witness the marriage cere

nounced that the happy couple had
been married over six weeks, they
were much surprised. The brides

and as we go the downward way of life,

where you and I when small girls, with
cushions and shawls smuggled from
mother's wardrobe, would sit and swing
a half day in the tops of the crooked
trees, imagining in our foolish little
hearts that we were tine ladies dressed
in the height of fashion, and were rid
ing in a handsome carriage, bowing to
imaginary friends, who envied us as we
passed them by.
By the way, do you remember the old
fasl'iioned carriages that were used in
those days? I shall never forget the
time some of our rich relatives came to
visit us, from Envytown. You remem
ber they came "through the country" in
their own beautiful carriage, with seats
covered with red leather, and a long
flight of steps that could be folded and
put away 'u some snug corner, that was
a great mystery to us. Oh! but did'nt
we revel in that lumbering old vehicle!
and now, between you and me, sister
dear, I still have a foolish fondness for
a carriage with steps. Our own ba
rouche was lined with dark blue and
our pair of horses were "claybanks";
but that was long after the red coach
experience I guess we might call that
a ml leitthvr day.

lights of a child's life! It covers every
thing with all that can he desired. As
the affectionate ivy enfolds the rugged
stone, softening, beautifying and hiding
all rough places, so the imagination
weaves its web In such dazzling colors
that everything is tinted with hues of
the rainbow to the young.
What, but this same imagination,
could have made us so enjoy the long
ride from school through the rain and
wind, with our hair Hying in the ut
most disorder to keep from the sup
posed drenching, when to an older head
our horses were planks, with one end
on the fence and the other on the
ground, and the gallop through the
storm was the work of this same de
lightful "tend like?" Oh, but it was
lovely then 1 We hated for night to
come, because it cut short onr pleasures
of the day that seemed to have wings.
It came to an end so soon. And when
winter came on and the misty snow
dropped ever so shyly at first as if not
to surprise the warm nosomoioiaearin,
we would say, "the old woman is pick
ing her geese;" and when, by and by,
the earth would be covered with a love
ly mantle of Hakes, we would ransack
the closets for papa's old boots, and
putting them on, go crunching through
its frozen billows and gatner the long
icicles that hung in glistening profu
sion from those same plum trees.
The grand sleigh rules back of the
smoke-house, where we would spin like
tops down the streets of the city, with
horses prancing and sleigh-bell jing
ling, singing merrily,
"Tingle, tingle, clear the way,
'Tis a merry, merry, day !"
When, as a matter of fact, the smoke
house was the only real thing; the
"street" was a hiil about thirty feet
long, the "sleigh" an old broken chair,
and the "merry bells" a cracked cow
