After the marriage ceremony the bridal couple will leave for Atlanta. Miss Wllkerson and Mr. Walton Drake, both of Greensboro, will be married this evening at 4 o’clock.

All our business houses were closed on Thanksgiving Day and an opportunity given the hard-worked, closely confined clerks to slay the innocent birds of the field without regard to age, color, kind or previous condition. Why Thanksgiv ing should be seized upon by almost ev ery man and boy in the community to go forth for the purpose of waging an indiscriminate slaughter of beasts of the forest and birds of the field is beyond our comprehension. The Whist club, composed of the elite of Greensboro society, was entertained by Mr. and Mrs. E. W. Kimbrough at their residence in the country in royal style on Thanksgiving Day. Dr. F. M. Peterson and Mrs. Peterson have returned from a lengthy visit to New York. Mrs. Phares Coleman of Montgomery and Mrs. Dr. H. T. Inge of Mobile are in Greensboro to attend the marriage of their sister, Miss Mary Peterson. Miss Mamie Stickney of Atlanta is also on the same mission. So far as your correspondent can learn, the populites of this county are opposed to a fusion with the republicans. We are satisfied that if Captain Johnston Is the nominee of the democratic party the bulk of the populites in this county will vole for him. For the first time in several years the negroes have some money after settling for advances, and they are spending it freely with the merchants. They are happy over the result of this year’s farm ing operations and are making contracts readily for another year. MEMORIAL SERVICES. Proceedings of the Benevolent Protective Or der of Elks Sunday.
