While in Loaisville Saturday we met
a number of the Lancaster folks now
living in that city. Hunter Irvine is
head book-keeper for Bonnie Bros.,
wholesale liquor dealers, and has a po
sition which is both responsible and
lucrative. Sara B. Harris is also a
book-keeper in this concern. Jim Cur
rey has been promoted several times
since going to work for the Jno. C
Lewis Co., and now has one of the
best jobs in the house. Burt Spencer
has been with the Fourth street hat
ters, II. D. Smith & Co., for several
years. The head of this firm died not
long since, and the fact that Burt was
appointed administrator of the estate
which amounts to probably $50,000
goes to show how well the Lancaster
lad stands with his employees. Judge
Wm. McKee Duncan is one of the lead
ing lawyers of the Falls City. When
met on the street he was stepping like
a dog in high rye, having just been in
formed that he was a "grand-pa." J.
A. Anderson is still in the government
service and is enjoying good health.
Armp Elkin has an important position

and are as happy as larks. Bob works
on the Commercial and is kept hust
ling from 3 p. m. 'til the wee 'sma
hours, but he loves newspaper work so
well that a little thiag like staying up
all night doesn't bother him. Tim
Huffman works at one of the leading
retai. dry goods houses. Millard Her
ring has a clerkship with one of the
largest millinery establishments and
Clyde Herring travels for the same
firm. Clyde was just starting on his
southern trip. Clyde was always
delicate fellow when living here, but
city life agrees with him. He looks
better than we ever saw him. Eb Hig-
gins has left Louisville and travels for
St Louis firm. Toach Anderson,
Lancaster colored man, runs the el
evator at the Board of Trade buildiner
and Bill Uiok bas an eatiotr establish
ment. Judging from the number of
questions these folks ask about Lan
caster, they still have a warm spot in
1 i r L ! i i i
their hearts for their old home.

Beautiful Wedding.
The Christian church was never .more '
prettily decorated than it was Tuesday
evening, nor was there ever a larger
crowd assembled therein. The occa
sion was the marri'g.5 of Mr. John
Smith Baughman, of Boyle county,
and Miss Patsy Beazley, of Garrard.
The wedding was the society event of
the season, as the contracting parties
are widely-known and very popular.
The pulpit was a solid bank of palms
and evergreens, no blooming flowers
being used. In a cosy nook sat the
organist, "Miss May Z. Hughes, and a
quartette composed of Mrs Ju'.iet Rog
ers, Miss Adtlie Burnside, Messrs.
Frank West and J. C Hemphill. The
ushers were Messrs. Gun Hayden,
Nicholasv.lle, Robert Salter, W. J.
Price, W. S. Lawwill, Hickman Carter
and J. B. Nichols, of Danville. The
party entered the church from the
front door. The ushers came in first,
followed by the bride's maids, Misses
Letitia Brown, Lexington, Sallie Steel,
Nicholasville, Alice Hudson, Mattie
Elkin, Lancaster. The bride came
down the le.'t aisle, leaning upon the
arm of her uncle, Mr. Luther Gibbs.
They were preceded by two little flow
er girls Misses Margurite Kinnaird
and EJna Mason. The groom came in
by the right aisle, accompanied by his
brother, Homer. The party formed a
pretty sami-circle at the altar where
Rev. T. H. Campbell, in a few well-
chosen remarks pronounced them man
and wife. The entire party left the
church by the left aisle. As they en
tered, the wedding chorus from Lo
hengrin was sung by the quartette.
As they left, Miss Hughes played the
Mendelssohn march. The bride wore
hite organdy over white satin, with
bridal veil and carried a shower boquet
of lillies of the valley. The bride's
maids wore white organdy, with green
sashes and carried Easter lillies. The
two maids of honor, Misses Allie An
derson and Jennie Burnside, wore
white organdy with white sashes and
also carried Easter lillies. The little
flower girls were attired in pure white
and carried handsome baskets of cut
flowers. The groom, best man and
ushers wore the conventional full
dress suits. The ceremony over, the
party took carriages and were driven
to the home of the groom, in Boyle,
where a handsome reception was given.
The bride was one of Garrard's most
popular society girls and by her
charming manners and lovely disposi
tion, made friends of all with nhr."
she met. Old and young alike admire
her and no bride has ever started upon
the matrimonial voyage with more
well-wishes than does she. Mr. Baugh
man, while a citizen of Boyle, has a
very large number of relatives and
friends in Garrard who heartily con
gratulate him on winning one so pure
and lovely for a helpmeet through life
He is an industrious, thrifty young
gentleman and will never give his fair
bride the slightest cause to regret the
tep she taken. Mr. and Mrs. Baugh
man will reside in Boyle county, where
he will continue to look after his farm
ing interests.
Who Is He?
The Louisville Times sa3s Robert
Hazen, of Garrard county, near Lan
caster, who came to Louisville to en
l'st in the army, was " touched" for his
watch, pocketbook contaning $5.80 and
overcoat. He told Chief of Detectives
Sullivan that he thought he would be
better at home than in the army after
his adventure, and refused to stay to
see whether the property could ba re
It is impossible for the system
to withstand the demands made
upon it just at this season, with'
out the assistance of a good puri
fying and strengthening tonic
The changes which Nature decrees
shall take place each spring are
so severe tnat a oreaKaown is
almost sure to come. It is wise
that all possible assistance be
given during this period, as upon
this purifying process depends the
health for the entire summer
Everybody just now should take a
thorough course of Swift's Specific
which thoroughly cleanses the
blood of all the accumulated im
purities, tones up and strengthens
the entire system, and aids .Nature
in renovating and renewing the
body so as to render it healthy and
strong. Those who purify their
blood with S. S. S. at this season
are well fortified against the many
forms of disease so prevalent dur
ing the dreaded heated term, for
it has been demonstrated that the
system that is thoroughly purified
in the spring is well prepared to
resist disease all summer.
No other remedy on the market
is equal to Swift's Specific as a
spring medicine, because it is the
only purely vegetable blood rem
edyand is guaranteed absolutely
free from potash, mercury and all
other minerals. It cleanses, puri
fies, builds up and strengthens
