j A BOLD THEFT.
Spring Street Merchant
Robbed Wednesday Eve.
I On Wednesday evening just pri
or to 6 o’clock, tbe goods display
ed by the Surprise Store iu front
of their building < a spring street,
were robbed to the extent of one
overcoat, one suit of clothes, one
fine fur stole and a fancy wool
swpater, and probably several mi
nor items. The goods were left
out later than usaal on account of
tbe rush and confusion, incident
to their big Spring clcuing now
in progress. The proprietors say
tbe thief could have saved him
self tbe trouble, aud avoided the
danger of arrest by getting same
goods inside at prices which would
have been practically the same as
stealing them. The thief dropppd
0"0 of the clothing hangers on the
corner jnst opposite court square,
showing that he was going north.
The matter has beeu placed iu the
hands of Marshall Robertson and
bheriff Kelly iheae efficient offi
cers will do their best to locate the
CLO PTON—LOCK A RI).
At the home of Mr and Mrs.
Fletcher Johnson on Main street
on Wednesday evening at 9 o’clock
Mias Gertrnde Lockard was mar
ried to Mr. M. L. Cloptou, the cer.
etnony being performed by Rev
T. W. Lewis, pastor of tbe Meth
odist church, only the family and
immediate frieuds being present.
The bride was reared in Tupelo
where she uumbers every one who
knows her as an admirer. Refined
and accomplished she has been a
social favorite since her entrance
into society, and her going away
will deprive our city of one of its
most accomplished young ladies.
Mr< Clopton is oue of the Lone
Star state’s most successful young
merchants and comes most highly
recommended. lie is a polished
young gentleman, The happy
couple left over the Frisco yester
day for Lufkiu, Texas, where they
will make their home.
The many frieuds in this city
were treated to a surpr se iu the
announcement of the marriage of
Miss Carrie Poole to Mr. Jack
Jones in Frauklin, Ky., on Jan oth
The ceremony was performed by
Rev. J, D. Huuter at the Cumber
land Presbyterian manse. When
i Mr, .Jones left Tupelo he did not
J confide in his frieuds that it was
his intention of returning with his
bride, so waen the marriage was
anumiuci.d it came as a genuine
surprise. The h»ppy couple are
well kuowu here and are receiving
the best wishes of tbeir many
friends upon the cousiim nation of
their foudest hooes.
i Owing to the had weitliT there
was no meeting of the cotton growers
on the Oth iast. I now desire »•» make
another call for Saturdday the gist
inst at the Cotirr House in Tupelo.
A full meeting is desired. Delegates to
