II. Hughes, of this place, was married at Lebanon last Monday night to Mr. E. W. Black more, of Missouri. The news of the romantic affair, which was received here Tuesday, created genuine surprise among Miss Daisy's friends and acquaintances. The following letter from the Nashville Democrat of Wednesday gives the details of the marriage : "Lebanon, Tenn., May 29. Leba non society circles were treated to a genuine sensation last night when it was reported that Mr. E. W. Black more of Moberly, Mo., at present a student in Comberland University, had married Miss Daisy Hughes, a beautiful young lady from McMinn ville, and a pupil at the Lebanon College for Young Ladies for some time past. The wedding was quite a surprise to the friends of both parties, and, in fact, was probably as much of a surprise to them as to any one else, for they themselves did not decide to link their fortunes for life until after nightfall. The two sisters of the young lady, Mrs. Frank and Miss Ophie Hughes of McMinnville, came in on Saturday to see the young lady and had taken rooms at the West Side Hotel, where Miss Hughes was spending a short time with them. Mr. Blackmore called to see the young lady at the hotel last night, and with the assistance of kind friends was enabled to make arrange ments for the happy consummation of the wishes of himself and the fair young lady. The license was secured, Rev. J. W. Fitzgerald sent for and at a few minutes before 11 o'clock the nuptial knot was tied. Mr. Black- more is 20 years of age, while the bride i3 only 18. They expect to re main in Lebanon for a few days, then go to the home of the bride at Mo Minnville, after which they will go to Moberly, Mo., the home of the bridegroom, where they expect to make their home. The many friends of the popular young couple at Leba non wish them all the joy and happi ness that married life can bring." THERE'S MONEY IN IT. A Direct Talk to Those Wanting Something to do. I wish to have a plain, honest talk with all parties, including those who are wanting to go into the Garment Cutter business as well as the workers already employed. (I will write this as if directed per sonally to the reader.) If you are thinking of entering the work you have an object in view Now as an honest person it would be well to ask yourself what the object is. Is it to make money ? Is it to bet tcr your condition ? To see the coun try, regain your health, benefit others as well as yourself, or what is the object? The probabilities are that you have a number of objects in view and all are reasonable. Well, the first thing for you to do is to carefully examine the Garment Cutter and the nature of the work, and see if you are suited to the work and the work to you. It is pleasant work compar ed with other work and requires no more exertion than you would have to put forth in any other work. Do not imagine that any business can be successfully followed without steady, persistent effort. I am often asked, what are the es sentials to success in .the Garment Cutter business? They are steady work, common sense and persever ance. Capital, influence and all these things help, yet they are not positive essentials as by following the work properly these can be attained. Another question that is often ask ed is, do all succeed in the work? No, all do not, neither do those who suc ceed do so to the same degree. But in all lines of business men fail. All iirmers,. merchants, lawyers, physic ians or mechanics do not get rich. n fact the majority remain poor and n obscurity. The only thing we claim is that there are better opportu nities in our work than in most other ines. The reasons for these are the general need of the Garment Cutter, its correctness and its comparative freedom from competition. We believe that a greater number in proportion, if they work properly, will succeed, and do well in this work than in any other line of business. That there are failures in this work we do not deny and we expect some to fail. The same methods and rules leadrag to success and failure in other work will apply in this. TESTIMONIALS: Irving College, May 23 1888. Mr. II. W. Rumbley Havine tested the Garment Cutter with such favorable results, we taice pleasure in proclaiming its merits and adding our testimonials to the list of many others. MI8S CHARITY KARNES MIS8 JOSEPHINE PEABSON. Mes. J. L. Copping ee. Irving College, May 24, 1888. Mr. Rumbley, I have taken a Garment Cutter and am now taking instructions.
