Separating in front of the altar and forming two lines, the bridesmaids and groomsmen grouped on either side. “Then came the maid of honor, Miss Gray Moorchead of North Carolina, whose gown varied from those of th* other maids in that chiffon draperies took the place of Marie Antoinette mode. She also carried American Beauty roses. The notes of tlie orchestra were now changed into the celebrated aria from Led air, and the bride entered leaning on the arm of her father, while the groom, accompanied by his brother and best man, Mr. Gould Barrett of Augusta, Ga., entered from a side door and joined the bride at the altar. “The bridal gown was of heavy white satin duchesse, the skirt of a plain full paquln model, the rich train sweeping stately in empress tines. The bodice, of chiffon and satin, was close-fitting, em phasizing the graceful lines of the wear er’s symmetrical figure, and closed at the throat with a deep fall of Brussels lace over the mosquetaire sleeves, intermin gled with half-hidden wreaths of orange blossoms. The beautiful veil was held in place by a superb diamond and pearl sunburst, 'the gift of the groom. The bride carried a shower bouquet of white violets and lilies of the valley. The hand kerchief and fan us°.d by the bride were those carried by her mother on her wed ding day, in 1871. There ttas an impress ive stillness as the bride and groom met at the altar, whore Bishop Duncan sol emnly pronounced the beautiful and im pressive marriage ceremony of the Meth odist Bplseopal church.” • • • Mrs. William H.

The candles in the crystal candelabra rested in yellow chrysanthemums, while at every plate were exquisite guest cards bearing an appropriate quotation from Shakespeare, lettered in gold, tied in yellow satin rib bons, and each beautified with a hunch of violets. Yellow, violet and green was the color scheme, and much of the elab orate menu carried out this design. The cups holding the sorbet were tied with hunches of violets, with yellow satin rib bons, the ices were pistache creams and the cordial was violet tinted.

It was considered necessary to give them an in troduction to the world. ^W'ould you like to hear something of Kri* Kringle's his tory? I think you would. His early days were not all brightness and sunshine. He had to tough It, as the little boys often say. His hardships, though, served lilm a good purpose. They hardened and tempered him for future usefulness. You may remember his mother, the old lady who lived in the shoe, and had so many babies she didn't know what to do. Krjs Kringle was the oldest of this t*ig group, so.be had to help his poflr mamma keep the babies. True, lie never joined in the beating aud the banging, but he helped to put them to bed and dry their tear-stained faces; then he ran b^ck and assisted his mother In cooking johnny 'cakeS for the morning feast. n,; Kris Kringle had to do ail the errands for his poor, over-worked mamma. I can't see how tile p "O boy could have ever gotten on in the/World but for his good grandmother, who'was a good, kind-hearted, loving old creature, whose greatest fault w as her abundant love for Kris Kringle. Her name was Dame Dimple. You remember her, anyway, Kris Kringle inherited, from her his cheerfulness and charitable nature, also his dimples and chubby face. Kris al ways know there was something nice hidden away, especially for him, at his grandmama's, and when he was quite a little tot he would go all alone over a snow-covered forest fo the little pine palace W'here dwelt Dame Dltnple. Often he would be accompanied by his little little dog, "Sparkle,” hitched to a sleigh, so that he might carry some of the good things from grandmother’s to his mother and the babies in the shoe. Kris Kringle, like all boys of energy, was ambitiuus. He wanted to do all the good he could in the world; he wanted to make every hndv h n nnv His grandmother told him to be a bright star or none. You see. his mamma, poor lady, was always kept so upset with her home work and tending the smaller children that Kris came in for a small share only of her care. Under these circumstances he naturally ran to his good grandmother to ask her advice on subjects of great importance. It oc curred to his mind one day, or maybe he dreamed it, to turn Sparkle, his faithful dog, free of harness, and instead use t wet or four white deer, just as the occasion demanded. By this we all see Kris was progressive in his ideas. He at once made the change, and from that day to the present he has done an extensive business besides serving the children who live in the shoe. How funny he looks, all muffled in furs, with little tin horns sticking out from all his pockets, springing over the snow with his spark ling harness, and all his little bells Jing ling a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. STELLA STONE. Blank Books “ready-made” and “made to order.” Rob erts & Son, 1809 2d avenue. 12-22-St _ LOUISIANA PLAN. Governor Poster Renominated by Siver Men—The platform Adopted. Shreveport, La., Dec. 20.—The demo cratic state convention of Louisiana held at Shreveport yesterday unanimously renominated Got". Murphy J. Foster for re-election. Apart from state matters the resolutions adopted by the conven tion are as follows; "Whereas, There is an honest difference of opinion among democrats upon the question of the free coinage of silver, bi metallism and monometallism; and "Whereas, This convention deals only with state politics; and “Whereas, The money question belongs to the domain of national politics only; therefore he it "Resolved, That this convention refer this question to the democracy of the state when they select delegates to the national convention and in nominating their candidates to the legislature, state senate and members of congress.” The committee upon resolutions was composed almost entirely of free silver advocates and the convention was very largely In favor of free silver. Judge Blackman presented a minority report, calling for the free coinage of both gold and silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, inde pendent of foreign countries, both mon eys to be primary moneys and a legal tender for public and private debt. In reply to Judge Blackman it was said by the chairman of the committee on res olutions that "there was no attempt in the committee to adopt a gold standard, or throttle a free discussion of the silver question. On the contrary, the commit tee was composed almost entirely of free silver men.” The matter was put to a ballot and re sulted in the defeat of the minority re port. The ballot was as follows: For the report, 365; for the amendment, 73; blank. 12. These resolutions, as adopted by the convention with such singular unanim ity. appear to be indorsed by the entire democratic press of New Orleans. The States, a gold basis paper, says: "The platform suits us entirely; and it looks to us as though the large major ity of the free silver democrats are en titled to the thanks of the party for re fusing to be parties to an effort to force that distracting Issue into tile campaign. The action of thr> convention on this point was wise and highly patriotic.” General freight and passen ger office Alabama Great Southern Railroad removed to No, 7 North 20th street.
