The wedding of Miss Jane Thomas to Mr. lllus Townsend Dudley, which took place 'ednesday evening, April the twenty iventh, In Warrenton church, was the most mutlful ever seen In the entire immunity. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. . C. Fennal in the presence of a large amber of friends and lDvited guests. PreKely at eight thirty o'clock the sweet strains 'the oft used Mendelssohn's weddlDg march jwed forth from beneath the dextrous uch of Miss Allle Mae Fennal, when alost Immediately the fairy like llttie forms Miss Gladys Wilson and her brother J.

In an original manner, pronounc I the beautiful words that made them one r life. The personality of the bride and brideoom goes a long way In making this an terestlng marriage. To begin with, the lde is beloved by every one who knows ?r, which Is, Indeed, the highest compllent. She comes of one of Abbeville >unty's best families. Her brightness, her vlng heart and her amiability together with sr great charm of lace and form, have en. lared her to all. Mr. Dudley Is the eldest Bon of one of the ost wealthy and Influential families of BenittevUle. A prominent lawyer and planter good man, worthy of prize he has won. The home of the bride's mother, Mrs. imes Walter Thomas, was a perfect bower roses; here an elegant reception was tensred the bridal party, a few friends and near lalives. The bride was exquisitely attired In white epe de chine over silk, the beauty of which as highly enchanced by the flowing veil. er only Jewel was a handsome diamond oocb. gilt of the bridegroom. Mrs. Llnder was very stately in a lovely ess of pale blue crepe de chine with trimlngs ol pearl passementerie. Miss Doutblt was superblv gowned in point esprit over silk.

Growing Disposition Among: the P*#? pie to Show Their Colon. 1 M ??II ? ?nnn wlirt rri a [ram r lagptiifM, saiu u uiau them, "are the pick of the forest whence they come. Up to 60 feet in length, and this would include the great majority, they are commonly of spruce; flagpoles more than 60 feet long are of pine. "The spruce poles come from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The pine poles come from northern New York and Michigan. "Up to 50 feet in length and a 50 foot staff would be counted a good, big staff. Flagpoles cost, all set up, truck on the top and halyards rove, ready to bend on the flag, from $1 to $1.25 a foot. The cost depends somewhat on the pole and somewhat on the situation, the latter question involving the difficulties attending setting the pole up. Longer poles cost proportionately more. A 75 foot pole might cost, set up ready for use, $150. Flagpoles for buildings are sometimes made up to 80 feet in length, but not often. "A 50 foot pole of the usual proportions, which would be 10 inches in diameter at the butt and 4 inches at the top, would weigh about 850 pounds. A, 75 foot pole would weigh about 1,500 pounds, 60 that when you put up a pole of that size you would be standing upon nno nnd weieht of three-auarters of a ton. "Of coarse the flagpole must be secure* ly set up. There are two ways of mounting a flagpole. One is to step it, running the lower end of the pole through the roof as you would run a mast through the deck of a boat. The other way is to set the butt of the pole in a shoe placed on the roof. The very tallest poles are always stepped through the roof. "A good flagpole, properly put up and properly cared for, is long lived. It might wear as long as the building on which it was placed. A flagpole really ought to be painted every year. Flagpole painting is done by the riggers employed by flagpole makers, by steeple climbers, by men who make a business of it, who go about seeking flagpoles to paint. To have a flagpole carefully and properly painted costs, according to the size of the pole, $5 to $10. "Flagpoles are made nowadays rather longer, if anything, than formerly. Their greater length is to make them more nearly proportionate to the higher buildings. "There are now sold more flagstaifa than ever before in proportion to the population. The law requiring the flying of the flag from schoolhouses has increased the actual number of poles, and the presence of those poles and ^he flying of the flag from them has prompted the raising of other poles. I think also that people are more likely now to put up flagpoles than they formerly were; anyway, that they have more disposition now than ever to show their colors."?New York Sun. ELEVATORS SAVING DAYS' WORK. Fifnrei of an Old Man Who Once > Climbed Weary Stain. Recently an ojd man stood in the cor ridor of a Dig omce ouuaing, wiua waicu in hand, making figures from time to time on the back of an envelope. There were many who wondered what he waa doing. He was computing how much time the modern elevators in our high buildings save to men in a day, and to one who spoke to him he told how for years, away back in the sixties, he had worked in the sixth story of a building which was then one of the highest in the city or the country either, for that matter; how, though young and spry then, he had dreaded that climb up six sheer stair flights; how the men ia the place would draw lots to see who at luncheon time should make the journey to the street to buy cakes and pie for the noonday meal, and how he had at times gone without his luncheon rather than use up so much strength in climbing the stairs. It took a minute and a half then for a young man to go up, he said, but tho manager of the factory, who waa more than 50 years old and somewhat rheumatic, always spent four minutes in the upward Btruggle. ??T mnn -illo* nn tho timu Bflvori A TV A3 JUJt U5UHU5 vu fc?v 1--.W by this modern appliance," the old man continued, "and I calculate that it is at least four minutes for every young man who goes to the twenty-fifth floor and ten mJnutes for your 'elderly gentlemen.' These express elevators, stopping only above the thirteenth floor, average 45 seconds in reaching the top. Of course we wouldn't have 20 or 30 story structures if the modern elevator manufacturers had not kept pace with the architects and builders, but I am arguing from the other side." And he showed an array of figures to prove that in a day's average business, in which 2,500 passengers are carried, two whole working days are gained. His young friend did not dispute him. It is in New York, of course, with its score of buildings that are 14 stories high and over, that the elevator has reached its greatest development. In the matter of speed the makers have vied with one another until 800 feet a minute is the rate at which the cars can be propelled. This means to the twentieth floor of a building in 30 seconds, a velocity that is gained by a multiplication of gear wheels over which the car cablea run.?New York Post "Why He Was SoocMsfal. The fact that success is mainly due hard work has been expresred in man. different ways, but one of the best was that recently employed by a very successful commercial traveler. He was talking with a companion, a rather lazy fellow, when the latter exclaimed: "I declare, Jack, I can't understand why you always succeed In selling so many more goods than I do!" "I'll tell you why it is," replied Jack. "But," he added, "it's a trade secret, and you mustn't tell it to everybody." "Of course I wouldn't do such a thing," was the answer. "Well, then," said Jack impressively, "I succeed because when I'm doing busi cess I wear out the soles erf my shoe# more than the seat of my trousers."? London Telegraph. Tfce Secret of Success.
