Dr. airron has the sympathy of jßgnds m his bereavement. wM © old Year and the New. ittrhe old year has passed out its burdens of joy and sor- V* * row. 1905 has closed the doors upon its pleasures and pains alike. It has witnessed happy marriages, joyous births, and thrilling deaths, but it too had to die. The glad New Year that came to us with its pages all spotless while just twelve short months ago has laid aside its record with pages full. Some were closely written with -well rounded characters, a living testimony of good deeds: others all blotted and torn, a record of tears, crime; and shame. Fame has been achived and fond hopes blasted since the merry peal of last New Years bells- Let us put aside our sorrow and disappointments and enter the glad New Year with buoyant foot-steps for “Old Father Time will soon make amends and it will be an old year too.” We cannot live again the old life but we can live the new life better so we offer a welcome to the year that is ours. Hail! Hail! H;il! Nineteen hundred-and-six. For the space of twelve mon'hs we crown him King. HYMENEAL. At the Baptist Church of Stur gis, on Sunday Dec. 24th, at four o’clock, Mr. James Cooke Wood and Miss Gemima Woodson were united in the holy bonds of wed lock. Mr. Wood is a prominent young news-paper man of this county. He is a son of Hon, T. J. Wood, a well known attorney of Starkville. The bride groom has persever ed in his suit until he won his charming companion. His has been no half-hearted affection but steady and enduring, “He came, he saw, and was conquer ed.” The winsom bride, the eldest daughter of Mr. W. TANARUS, Woodson, the efficient Post master, has lived her brief life in the Sturgis yicinity and has been quite pop ular in its social circ’e for the past two years. Prior to that time she was engaged in the school room preparing herself to become a teacher. But after spending four months in the ar dous task of trailing children she found it too irksom and de cided that, “home keeping hearts are happiest.” The bride daintily attired in white passed up the aisle accom panied by her maid of honor. Miss Evlin Davis, Mr, Wood leaned upon the arm of Rev. J. N. Hall, best man. They met at the altar and there under gar lands of ferns, ivy, and the Christmas holly responded to the words which made them man and wife while soft music floated out upon the evening air. Dr. Dickens uttered the solemn impressive words in a gentle tone of benediction and the bright vivacious girl became changed to a loving wife. Quite a host of friends witness ed the nuptials but only a few im mediate friends enjoyed the priviledge of being entertained in the home of the bride’s par ents, where a delightful supper was served to the bridal party. The guests were as follows; Misses Allie and Ruth Wood, Mayme Gray, Evlyn Davis and Sal lie Bevili, and Messrs. T. J. Wood, C. B. Hannah, Dr. Dick ens, Chas. Wood, Elmo Davis, Roscoe Shropshire and Rev. J. N. Hall, also Masters Harry and Kellis Wood. It was indeed a merry wedding party that met ’round the festal board but all too soon the mirth was checked as the hour for de parture drew near. Mr. and Mrs. Wood will be “at home/’ to friends in Starkville after Jan. Ist. They received many valuable and useful presents. May the joy and happiness of the wed ding day continue ever. S. L. B. Mrs. A. J. Sanders, of Kosci usko, visited her son’s family, Mr. A. Z. Sanders, for several days, returned home yesterday morning. Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Marchman and little daughter, of Lindier, Tex. who have been visiting the family of Mr. P. H. Powers dur ing Christmas, departed for their home yesterday.

Dave makes it a point to spend every Christmas here. Mr. Ames says he likes Texas better in some respects than Mississippi. He says that the laws are enforced there; that there is no distinction for high social stand or on account of wealth. The Gulfport News says that is the way they do in South Mississippi. Texas and South Mississippi are most worthy and prosperous countries under the Sun f rom their statement, but there is no plaee like North Mississippi and Starkville.
