Because of the recent death of
Mr. Hardy's honord father, one of
Lowndes county's first citizens, the
, marriage was quietly fclebrated,
none but the families and a few in
timate friends being present to wit
Bess the consecration of the rite;
but because of the youth of the love
to bride, and the conditions of the
times the very simplicity of the set

vice itself lent to the hour an added
beauty such as no amount of floral
decorations, of stately surroundings
r of brilliant ceremonial could have

the dainty browneyed bride who, in

If you have u gray-haired mother
In the old home far away,
Sit down and write her a letter
You put off day by day.
Don't wait till her tired steps
Reach Heaven's royal gate.
Just fhow her that you think of her
Before it is too late.
If you have a tender message
Or a loving word to say,
Don't wait till you forget it,
But whisper it today.
Who knows what bitter memories
May haunt you if you wait?
So make the loved one happy.
We live but in the present,
The future is unknown,
Tomorrow is a mystery,
Today's nil our own ;
The chance that future leads us
May vuniKh while we wait,
So give the richest treasures
Before it is too late.
The tender words unspoken,
The letter never spent,
The long forgotten message,
The wealth of love unspent.
For these some hearts are breaking,
For these some loved ones wait,
0 show them that you ct.re for them
Before it is too late.

Another Week of Matchless Values In
WGOTE (SdDdDtDg)
The second week of the White Sale starts with additicnal
numbers of white goods values which have come in since the
sale started. Every day since the sale opened has shown in
creased sales which shows ever increasing interest in the
values offered The more cotton goods you buy now the
greater your future savings. This one consideration is enough
to make our White Goods section the center of. attraction to
economical shoppers. Did you read the page full of Big
Values in last week's papers? We need not tell you what
these same qualities will be worth later in the season you
are quite familiar with how prices are soaring. Right now we
are selling cotton goods for less than we can buy them at
wholesale. Be wise and buy now for present and future needs.

Than to view his bitter struggle an
