Last Sunday's Nashville Ameri
can contained the following:
"No event that lias occurred in
the prominent social circles of Tenn
essee in some time has created so
much interest as will the marriage
of Miss Mary Polk Yeatman to Maj.
Shepherd Webb, of Kuoxville, which
will take place in August at the
bride's home in Maury County.
Few women in Tennessee are as
much admired as Miss Yeatman,
while Maj. Webb stands in the fore
most ranks of Tennessee's noted
lawyers. If there is aristocracy in
America Miss Yeatman can certain
ly claim such distinction, not only
by her distinguished ancestry, but
in her patrician beauty and high
bred charm. Her superior charac
ter and womanliness are depicted in
her rarely handsome face. Miss
Yeatman is the granddaughter of
(Jen. Lucius Junius Polk, and her
grandmother on her paternal side
was Mrs. John Bell, one of the most
brilliant women who ever graced
Washington society. This repre
sentative of a family who for centu
ries has been closely associated
with the country's history, was se
lected three years ago to represent
Tennessee for life in the Mt. Vernon
Association, and from this honor, by
a strange freak of fortune, grew the
romance which has the happy cul
mination in the above announce
nient. The noble women of Mt.
Vernon Association, besides pur
chasing the historic home, have
bought many acres of land that ad
join it. and Mrs. Hearst, of California,
and Miss Yeatmen were appointed
'farmers." Mrs. Hearst, with char
acteristic generosity, insisted upon
entirely .supplying the farm, but
Miss Yeatman, with natural patrio
tism, wanted Tennessee represented
there, so she went to work to secure
a herd of Jersey cattle. In corres
pondence about one of the beautiful
Jerseys she sent to Mt. Vernon she
first came to know the man she hon
ored, as from their correspondence
began a friendship which will end
in this happy marriage.
"The wedding will be quietly cele
brated at Hamilton Place, one of the
famous Polk homes of ante-bellum
splendor. Before the war many
members or tne uistinguisnea family
settled at Ashwood, in Maury
County. Here in splendid establish
ments they lived in tne same luxury
and exclusiveness as did their an
cestors in the old world. They built
a family chapel, known as St. John's
Episcopal Church, and in the church
yard they laid their honored dead.
The chapel is standing, covered in
ivy and shaded by glorious oak
trees, whose broad branches stretch
out protecting arms over the graves
of the chivalrous men and beautiful
women who sleep beneath.
"Miss Yeatman has won the ad
miration of every woman in Tenn
essee in the handsome room slie is
to send Mt. Vernon from the Wo
man's building. So her marriage
will be of more than ordinary social

age was the scene of a quiet weddin
on last Wednesday evening a few
minutes before 8 o'clock, the con
trading parties being Miss Almira
Cox ana JMr. . i). Harlow, unly a
few intimate friends witnessed the
ceremony, which wasaaid in a pleas
ing manner by Kev. V. f). W endel.
The marriage was a runaway affair,
and was quite a surprise to the
friends of the parties. The parents
of the bride had objected to the mar
rlagn, but, as is usual in sucli cases,
that only increased the dotermina
tion of the young people and brought
about the marriage all the sooner
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. L. T. Cox, who reside in West
End, and has a legion of friends who
wish for her and the one whom she
lias chosen as her companion through
life, much happiness and prosperi
ty. The groom is the popular flag
man on the Florence accommoda
tion, and his numerous acquaintan
ces congratulate him upon the prize
lie lias won.

The wheat market has been quite
lively, the grain finding ready sales

The Sun Has in Eclipse.
Old Sol became abashed at some
thing yesterday morning, and tried
to hide his face, and partly suc
ceeded. This was what is termed an
annular eclipse of the sun, in which
the moon's shadow, at the middle of
the eclipse, is not large enough to
completely cover the face of the
sun, out leaves a ring ot liglit en
circling the eclipsed portion. The
eclipse began shortly after T o'clock,
and lasted about three hours. At
first a mere black curved line made
its appearance on the sun, which
gradually increased for about an
hour and a half, when it had the
appearance of a half-full moon. At
the time of greatest obscuration
there was a sensible diminution in
the sun's light. The eclipse was
watched through pieces of smoked
glass by a large number of persons
While interesting, annular eclipses
are not regarded among astronomers
as by any means so important as
,otal eclipses. Unfortunately, too,
annular eclipses are somewhat more
frequent than are total ones. The
total solar eclipse is an event which,
for grandeur, probably has no equal
among celestial phenomena. The
complete fading of the sun's light
and the appearance of stars at noon
day are startling features of the
solar eclipse. The last solar
eclipse of the sun, which was
visible in the United States, took
place Jan. 1, 189, and was best seen
in California. The next will occur
on May 27, l!)iK, and tlif path of
totality will extend from Virginia to
Louisiana. The annular eclipse
occurs at a period when the moon is
near the earth, the total at a time
when the mooii is farthest distant
from the earth.

and called to his friends for help.
His companions attempted to rescue
him, but, despite all their efforts, he
sank for the third time, and his
body was not recovered until half an
hour later. The remains were taken

home of his aunt Mrs. Henry Hile,
in South Columbia. On Monday
morning at six o'clock his remains
were conveyed to Campbeiisville,

Mr. Helton professed religion last
summer and joined the Baptist

Stole a Pair of Shoes.
Yesterday afternoon a negro boy,
in company with several other
negroes, walked into Bogatzky's
store, and, after making some pur
chases, pulled a fine pair of ladies
shoes from his pockets and asked
Mr. Butler, one of the clerks, to
wrap them up for him. Mr. Butler
suspicioned something and asked
the negro where he got the shoes
and how much they cost. The
negro replied that he bought them
from the Racket and paid 75 cents
for them. The name of Figures A
McLemore was branded on the
shoes, and Mr Butler seeing this
was further confirmed, in his
suspicions that the negro had lied.
So, calling a friend in, he whispered
to hi in to step down the street and
see Mr. Figures. The negro became
uneasy at tin's, and, leaving the
shoes behind him, took a hasty de
parture from the store and started
out the Nashville pike. Olllcer
Roberts was called for, who tele
phoned out to Ashton Bros', mill to
stop the negro, and, getting into a
buggy, went in pursuit. The negro
was stopped at the mill, and in less
than twenty minutes from the time
the ofllcer was notified, the thief
was enjoying the hospitality of the
station house. He gave his name as
Earl Kinnard, and said he lived
near Jamison's store, He will be
tried before Judge Erwin this morn
