One of the prettiest and most fash ionable weddings of the season was celebrated at Christ Lutheran church on Thursday night when Miss Mary Funkhouser was married to Mr. James Hamilton Woodward. The church had been beautifully decorated for the occa sion. Evergreens were twined in pro fusion about the altar and palms aud many flowers were tastefully arranged there, and in tbe midst were candles, which gave peculiar charm to the scene. The church was filled to its utmost capacity by the beauty and fashion of our city, and nothing was lacking to make the occasion one of the most at tractive that could be; desired. Long before the arrival of the bridal party the ushers were taxed to find room for the throng which kept pouring in. Prof. F. K. Webb presided at the or gan and Mrs. Bumgardner, Miss Fannie Tarns and I). E. Euritt, Frank Bear and C. B. Caldwell composed the choir. There was a chorus of ten young ladies, as follows: Misses Bettie McCue, Minnie McCoy, Lizzie Atkinson, Daisy V arbrough, Lucy Walker, May Crowle, India Bumgardner, Fannie Tannehill, Mary Finks and Jessie Bowling, who entered the church from the side door singing a chorus from the Lohengrin wedding march, and filed up the main aisle to the front door of the church, where they met the bridal party, and preceded them to the altar. These young ladies were dressed in white organdie, elaborately trimmed in white satin ribbon, and each carried a large bunch of pink chrysanthemums, tied with white ribbon. The Dame of Honor was Mrs. S. D. Ferguson, of Boanoke, sister of the bride, who was tastefully dressed in white taffeta trimmed in Duchess lace, carrying a large bunch of white chry santhemums. She followed the brides maids, Misses Annie Child, Eliza Brax tou and Anna Woodward, of this city, and Miss Janie Price, of Lewisburg, W. Va., who made a beautiful picture as they advanced toward tbe altar, dressed in pink taffeta cut decollette with point i desprit over dresses trimmed in ruffles ; of white satin ribbon with white sashes, each carrying bunches of white chry santhemums tied with white ribbon. * The groomsmen were J. Walker Mc- Chesney, Chas. G. Mathews, of Lewis- : burg, W. Va.; Joseph S. Denny and , Frank W. Bell in conventional dress suits. i The bride was handsomely attired in a. white satin gown en train, elaborately trimmed in duchess lace, pearl and dia mond ornaments, and veil held by a diamond brooch, the gift of the groom. , She entered from the front door of the church on the arm of her brother, Mr. J. Scott Funkhouser, at the same time the groom entered from the side ' door of the church with his best man, E. P.Funkhouser, brother of the bride,and they met in front of the altar, where ' the vows were impressively prouounc ed according to the marriage service , of the Lutheran church, by the pa-tor, Key. H. F. Scheele. At the conclusion of the services the j bridal party, aud the choristers, accompanied by the ushers, who were Messrs. Fielding Oliyer, Harry Wood ward, Frank Tannehill and Fitzhugh Elder, and the following young gentle men who with the ushers constituted the escorts of the young ladies who sang the chorus, viz., J. M. Perry, Boh Black ford, H. Hampton Wayt, T. Peyton ' Brown, Harry Eichelberger and Wm. B. Walker, with _ few relatives and ' personal friends, to the home of the bride, which is one of the most elegant in the city. Here a cano py had been arranged in the parlor under which the wedded couple stood, and received their friends. There was a luxurious display of the most beautiful aud choice flowers, the halls, parlors ' and mantles being banked with them. During the evening refreshments were ' served, the table being presided over by Mesdames J. Mason Miller, Jr., Frank ' Hanger, G. E. Euritt, Geo. F. AViison, H H. Henkel, The bride is the daughter of the late M. P. Funkhouser, prominent for a ' number of years in financial and insur ance circles in this city. She is one o our most beautiful young ladies and enjoys the highest social position, and is extensively related in the city and surrounding country. The groom, Mr. Woodward, is one of our most prosper ous business men, of high social stand ing and widely related throughout the city and State. They left on the 2:07 train this morning for an extended trip North. The presents were numerous and very handsome. On their return to Staunton, they will make their home here. . ■ 9, s It has been said that consumption is hereditary, and the fact that one person of a family had died with consumption was considered a sure sign that others of that family could not escape it. This is partly true and partly untrue. A man with weak lungs is likely to transmit that weakness to his children. But tnere is no reason in the world why the weak ness should be allowed to develop. Keep the lungs full of rich, red, wholesome blood, and the weakness will disappear. Decaying tissues will be thrown off, and new material will be added until the lungs are well and porfectly strong again. This is tbe thing that Dr. Tierce's Golden Medical Discovery does. This 16 what makes it cure 98 per cent. of ail cases of consumption where it is tikeu according to diiections. It searches out disease germs wherever they may be in the body and force them out of the system. It supplies the blood with rich, life giving properties.

Probably our great ancestor, Adam, little thought of the trouble he would cause posterity by eating an apple. But now the question as to how many ap ples he really did eat is a new difficulty. How many apples did Adam and Eve eat? Was it one, or was it millions? When the>ubject was first mooted, the editor very naturally replied, Why, one of course. No, said the assistant editor, Eve ate one, and Adam ate one, too, that's 2. Then tbe sub-editor passed along a slip of paper, on which was written, Eve 81 and Adam 81, making 162. But the poet, vno is a man of imagin ation, capped this with, Eve 81 and Adam 812, 893. Then the publisher tried his hand, and his contribution was, Eve 8142 see howittasted, and Adam 812, equals 8,954. But his assistant beat the publisher, asserting that, Eve 8142 see how it tasted, and Adam 8142 keep her com. pany, 16,284. The poet who dislikes being surpassed as much as he hates barbers, came up to the scratch agaiu with, Eve 8142 tee how it tasted, and Adam 81242 keep her company, 89,384. Then the humorist, who had been listening quietly, handed in fits contri bution, Eve 8142 see how it tasted, and Adam 8,124,210-der a husband was he to see her eat alone, equals 8,132,352. j There the matter rests for the present, and we are very thankful it does rest.— Exchange. ♦ _ m Sunset I'ersoiially Conducted Excursions to California Without change of Cars.
