Ed. Oliver, son of Mr. L. Oliver, re
turned laHt week from Atlanta, Ga.,
where he has been for several months
attending a business college.
Mr. H. B. Curler, who bought, last
summer, several thousand acres of land
between Macon and Urooksville, re
turned this week from DeKalb, 111. He
brought back two expert tilers and will
have a good portion of the Mcintosh
and Rogers places tiled.
Dr. Rufus Wyatt, of Ethelville, Ala.,
a former practicing physician of Ma-
in the county this week. He had thyS
misfortune about two weeks ago, to
lose a fine barn and a large amount of
feed stuff. His residence, which he
erected in the last year or two, had a
narrow escape, and he feels very for
tunate that his loss was not heavier.
We are glad to note that Mr. Sam
Bowen, the old Confederate veteran,
who was so badly burned about two
weeks ago, a notice of which was made
in the Beacon Rt the tinw, is very much
improved nnd he will soon resume the
duties of constable, which office he has
held for a number of years'.! He is at
the home of his sister, MrsrStevens at
l.he old Howen place across Cedar creek.
Mr. Mat Edwards has been acting con
stable since Mr. Howen's accident.
Mrs. Mary Mahorner's many friends
Yfwere glad to welcome her on a recent

of Mrs. Mollie Patty.
The Board of Supervisors was in ses

hearing the petition of T. B. Paulette

witnesses was heard on both sides of
the case. The board granted the pet i
f.ion. An appeal, it is understood, wi!
be taken to the circuit court. Geo,

nnd J. E. Rives represented the other

The' friends of Joe Len Thompson.

his recovery are entertained.
A Card of Thanks.
We take this medium to thank our
friends for their kind words and acts
of sympathy nnd service to us during
the recent illness ana death or our

heard words of Christian sympathy
coming from friends and acquaintances,
it caused ! our broken hearts to lookup

A particularly pretty coutitrywet!ding
occurred at Lion church .Wednesday
evening, November (Hh, when Mi.-s
Melissa Madldin became the bride of
Mr. II. Vernon Clark. The church was
beautifully and most artistically do-orated
in green and while, the white of
the decorations being made up of bc-i-quets
The wedding march was played by
Miss Carrie Williams. The ushers
were Messrs. Irvin Mauldin, Frank
Mauldin, Astor Smith and Sam Clark.
The ceremony was performed by Itov.
J. II. Hock, in the presence of a large
crowd that filled the church to over
flowing. A great many people from
Macon were present
After the ceremony the happy couple
came to town where an elegant light
supper was given them by Mr. and Mir.
E. E. Dantzler, the only other guests
being Miss Mary Dinsmore and Mr.
The bride is the daughter of .Mr, ami
Mrs. Joshua Mauldin and is noted at
one of the prettiest girls in Noxubee,
as well as possessing great charm of
manner and intellect. The groom is
one of the best known young men in
the county and is the oldest son of Mr.
W. D. Clark. Ho entered the sheriff's
office some eight years ago when his
father held that office, and so well per
formed the duties there that he has
continued deputy ever spice, holding
that position now.
Mr. and Mrs. Clark are now residing
at the home of Mr. E. E. Dantzler on
Eighth street in Macon. ,
Last Saturday night at Sylvia Ridge
negro church while a box supper
being held there, George Abraham, a
hand on the Augustus place, was shot
and killed by Tom Macon, assistant to
the engineer at the Cotton Oil Mill.
The row occurred over a pint bottle of
whiskey. The deceased was standing
in the pulpit when shot and fell dead.
His body lay where it fell until late
Sunday morning. Tom Macon, who is
now a fugitive from justice, bore an
excellent reputation for industry and
sobriety. Another negro named IIol-
man, also from the Augustus place was
shot accidently it is said in the back.
His wound is not severe. Will Macon
was placed m lail tor knocking t red
uison in the head with the butt end
of a buggy whip.
Mr. W. F. Allen to Retain His Position.
A news item was sent from Meridian
ast 1'i-Kiay to me commercial-Appeal
and it also appeared in a local paper in
that city, that a Mr. Hairstnn had been
ippointed to be agent of the Mobile &
Ohio at Macon. This ollice was be-
seiged on Saturday last by the friends
of ,Vr. Allen as to the correctness of
the report, and on inquiring we found
that the item was incorrect as to place,
and that Mr. Hairston would go to
HrooksTlTeTJ Mr. Allen las been with
the Mobile "and Ohio for more than a
quarter of a century, a good portion of
that time being spent in Macon, and
on account or rus peculiar mnc.ss tor
the place and faithfulness to his em
ployees, we feel safe in saying that he
will be the agent in Macon until he re
signs or is removed by Providence.
Another Barn Burned.
About seven o'clock Thursday night
the town was alarmed by pistol shots
and the cry of "Fire." The stable of
Mrs. Sue Holberg was in a blaze and j
despite the efforts of the (ire depart- j
meat which w-as soon on the spot, soon I
burned down. J large amount ol
fe.-d stuff was burned and several hogs.
Ahorse, wagon, tic, were gotten out.
It was a very fortunate thing that no
ot'ier loss occurred. The building was
oi l and the wood very light and dry. A
slight wind blew great quantities of
ishes and embers a distance of two
blocks and more to the north-northwest,
and several houses were in emi
nent danger for u wh le. Rut for hav
ing waterworks in town a very large
loss would have been suffered. Some
of the burning embers were several
nches square. One lodged in a tree in
Mrs. Sallie Murphey's yard on a dry
ind decayed limb nnd afterburning half
in hour had to be extinguished with
The need of a hose cart light enough
to be haukd rapidly by the members of
the fire department was emphasized
Thursday night. The boys are prompt,
but dragging as heavy a wagon as they
now use is laborious and necessarily
slow. It is to be hoped that no great
conflagration will be necessary to en
;'orce this ni-ed upon our town.
