The young people of Fairmont seem
to delight in getting married and not
letting any one know about it until
after it happens. This has been the
case several times in our city within
the last few months. Mow it is going
to happen again if we do not watch
\ out. One of our prominent young
ladies and a prominent young man
Vtfrom a county not far away will be
, married perhaps this week. To-morW
row some of the' guests will arrive.
P This wedding will not be unexpected
/ as it has been a foregone conclusion
for some time past. We wish them
all the hanniness possible, but they
may as well '"fess up." Wanted
to Rest.
Last evening a plain drunk stretched
himself on the Court-house lawn
to rest his weary bones and more
weary brain. As it happened he had
friends enough to carry him back into
one of the Court-house halls before
a cop got him.

'irmont could have taken yestery's
game with ease, but more ex Imonts
were tried by the manage- . ;
int with the Inevitable result that
3dmont romped away with the
me and the ax>octators walked out
the ground with u look of supreme
gust written upon their heretofore
-ous countenances. Taylor, a new
in, was on the rubber, and while
i performance was not ridiculous
i pitching is not what the fans >
ve been used to. His home is in
me unpronouncable town out in
lo. and when Edwards left/for bis
me on a few days visit, Taylor's . :cher
was sent for. He did not'
ivo until yesterday afternoon and
the meantime the game had startwith
Frnnkenbury catching. In i
3 fifth Inning after Shiner Hew "out
Wayninn. Montgomery singled to
t and Thorpe singled to right. Pat son
doubled to right scoring Mont- _ 0
mery. Met tier* then grounded to " f
Am who threw to the plate to catch
iorpe. The ball arrived in plenty
time to retire the man, but Frankbury
forgot to touch him. Three / 9

rors and poor judgment.
Mr. Perkins, the new catcher who
here on suspicion, arrived a few
nnents before Frankenbury's exdtlon
of dumbness, was uniformed '5?|
d put in the game. As lie walked .,0
bis position a few people applaud- :-~??
and he graciously turned and lift- _ his
cap. Then we expected great jfj/i
ings of the man who accepted a
nd before he had proven his .
>rth. A gang of baseball enthusi- /# ;
ts are merciless esneclally to a :-;vd
anger, but Perkins' exhibition yes- -0
-day deserved roasting and he got V.;
along with the management, iu -? w
e sixth inning, after chasing a ' :?
ssed bail to the bleachers, he re- ' in
rued it to Taylor and came to his .
sltlon with ills head down and
emingly in an somnambulistic i->
tte from which he was awakened .v-51
ter Parsons had rambled home. ag
Tills sort of thing took all the snap
