One of the most interesting and en
tertaining social events of the season
took place at Tullahoma Wednesday
evening of this week.
At 7 :30 p. m. the Methodist Church
was filled to its utmost capacity ex
cepting a space about the chancel for
the Knights of Pythias, but still the
anxious throng, as it began to form
around and in front of the Church,
continued to increase as if waiting for
some master spirit to preside over the
multitude of people. That master
spirit Hymen was there. Cupid had
sent a level shaft right into the
hearts of two well matched Tullaho-
mian's, and honest old Hymen came
to heal the throbbing wounds.
t8:30p. m. a double column of
the brave Knights of Fythias moved
slowly through a pressing crowd of
people without followed by Rev. A.
T. Crawford, of McMinn ville, and
the bridal party. When the central
aisle of the Church was reached, the
guards loosed the silken cords that
held the way open to the gracefully
decorated chancel, to which the hap
py groom, Mr. E. Rusdell, a promi
nent young merchant, led Miss Au
rora Fariss, daughter of Dr. W. M.
Fariss, the fair young bride, an hon
orable graduate of Dr. Price's College
for Young Ladies, polarized every
eye of the ereat multitude. The
music, presided over by Mrs. Morris,
softened into teohan plaintiveness as
the impressive ceremony proceeded.
Many eyes moistened in holy joy
as their loving sympathies mingled
with the grace, beauty and humility
of the bride as she knelt by the
kneeling groom to implore God's
continued blessing upon the kind
connubial tenderness there blending
into the oneness of conjugal love.
The trousseau will not here be de
scribed. It was elegant, costly, beau
tiful and bountiful.
Fifty .happy guests partook of the
royal repast at the elegant home of
the bride's father.
The whole realm of esculent nature
contributed, to the feast which found
no limit but in the boundary line of
satiated appetites of the joyful guests
It is a good thing to get a wife
from the Lord and, therefore, marry

P. A. Pearson,
The secretary of the state democrat
ic executive committee says that from
information received from all sec
tions oi the state ho is warranted in
stating in the most emphatic manner
possible that the factional animosities
engendered during the recent contest
for gubernatorial honors are rapidly
disappearing and that democrats are
in line and will work heroically for
the success of the ticket from Cleve
land down. There are a great many
democrats, who, for various reasons.
have taken no interest in politics for
a number of years, and have persist
ently stayed away from the polls
that are enthusiastic this year and
will join the working forces and help
roll up a big majority. There is going
to be a "ground swell ' irom the old
"stay at homes."
Would You Advise me to Handle the
That is a question I am often ask
ed, and it is a hard one to answer
many times, as I do not know the
surroundings, the ability, the ambi
tion or a thousand other things con
cerning the person, so I can't always
answer; Bdt for my part I prefer it
to anything I can do. I can make
more money out of it and be more in
dependent than I can in anything
else. I can't tell you all the reasons
why I prefer it to other lines of busi
ness, it would take too long and the
reasons are given in many places in
this article. It is a work I can rec
ommend my friends to follow, and a
work, properly followed will give
immense returns. I will tell you the
plain truth about it and then leave it
with you to decide. Many go into
the work and succeed, others do not.
One merchant will rent a building,
o to selling goods and fail: another
will rent the same room, handle the
same goods and get rich. So it is in
all business. The only advantage we
have over other kinds of work is the
real value of our Cutter, its compara
tive freedom from competition, and
its immense profit. These are tho
principal reasons. There are many
others, too, such as neat, clean, light,
lealthy work; opportunities of see
ing and knowing the world as it fa ;
the wonderful advantages of leani
ng human nature : freedom from care
and anxiety; benefiting" the human
race, and the ability by proper work
to amass a fortune.
Call on H. W. Rumbley, General
Agent at McMinnville and secure
your territory at once, for it is being
taken very fast. Already some of
the best citizens of the county have
invested as much as a thousand dol-
ars in territory, and many have
taken agencies and many have taken
one or more counties. Such people
as the Fingers and Hills of Vervilla
some of the oldest and best citizens
of Warren Co.) ; Rev, A. N. Moore,
who has bought a thousand dollars
worth of territory in southern Tenn
essee ; Rev. S. M. Parks of Winches
ter, Tenn., H. L. Walling, Jr., Scotts
and King and many others too
numerous to mention, and consider
ing that some of these have bought
territory after canvassing for some
time in this county, is positive evi
dence as to the genuineness of tho
Cutter, and to the immense profits.
Taylors, May 31, 1888.
Mr.W.II. Rumbley, McMinnville. Tenn.
Dear Sir. I cheerfully add my testimo
nial to the large number already given the
National Garment Cutter. I could not
praise it too highly. I think it is a perfect
system in every respect, and one that has
long been needed by the people. I have
bought one and would not take $25.00 for it,
if I could not get another. The agent has
done some splendid work in every neigh
borhood and has given satisfaction as far
as heard. There has been several sold here
and the prospect is good to sell more.
Mrs. Fankie Johnson.
Taylors, June 1, 1888.
Mr. II. W. RumbleyMcMinnvilie, Tenn.
Dear Friend. Send me six more Cutters
at once, those you sent me are all gone,
business is increasing daily, never saw the
like;' Indies come from adjoining counties
for the Cutter. You told me to press the
work when I came, and I did,but won't an
more for it is pressing me beyond my favor
now. Have made more money since I haye
been working with tho Garment' Cutter
than I made in three months before. I am
glad you induced me to go to work. Excuse
me for not writing more at present but will
write you again tomorrow. With best
wishes to all National Garment Cutter peo
ple, I am as ever, your friend and brother
agent, W. A. Norton.
