Bradley soon said the words that joined them to gether as husband and wife. The same evening Mr. Ralph M. Reese also duly armed with the necessary authority from the State of Mississippi, repaired to the home of hia hridp to hp Miaa Laverne Merritt, where Rev. Cloar of the Baptist church soon joined the happy twain together in the presence of the family and a few intimate friends Miss Lawson is the daughter of Mrs. J. M. Lawson and is a pi quant blond who has had many admirers since her childhood. Miss Merritt is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R L. Merritt and is one of Tupelo’s pretty and at tractive girls. Messrs Reese and Epting have held positions at the postoffice for a number of years and their popularity is limited only by the number of their acquaintances. May they live long and prosper. Fall Vegetables The entry of JJtrs. J. S. Yates from her garden of fall vegeta bles attracted, we may truthful ly say, more atteniion than any one entry during the Lee county fair. Mrs. Yates had twenty seven varieties of vegetables on display and they were all of the finest quality. The collection included many things that most of us never at tempt to have in the fall, but Mrs. Yates proved conclusively that they could be grown very successfully here notwithstand ing the dry weather. The veg etables were raised without being watered but through a successive system of working the soil and keeping the moisture in the ground. Those on display were: Irish and sweet potatoes, beets, car rots, cabbage, collards, butter beans, lettuce, salsify, sweet and hot peppers, turnips, eschallots, radishes, parsley, spinach, cu cumbers, egg plants, English uuu, uiuotai u, uuiuuo, beans, tomatoes and squash.

Lee County Hogs Lee county’s leading breeder of the large bone Poland China hog, B. F. Ballard, had his usual success at the Tri-State fair in Memphis where he captured some good prizes.

Burton-Leopard Thursday afternoon the 12th inst., Miss Ida Leopard was quietly married to Mr. Frank M. Burton, the ceremony being said by Rev. J. D. Hunter. A tinge of romance was injected into the match from the fact that the family of the bride was on the eve of moving west and with thi prospect of being separated from his affiance brought Mr. Burton to a very serious mood and he got busy in bringing the affair to a close. Securing the license he called in Brother Hunter who soon joined thfeir hearts and hands for life. mi i •■« i _ xue unae is one or tnc county 's most lovable girls and Mr. Bur ton is being congratulated upon winning her hand.

October 13th. Too much can not; be said about this fair as it was the most successful one that we have ever had. The business men of Tupelo are behind the or ganization which ensures its suc cess. The fair property is owned by the city and is now and will be kept in a high state of im provement. New barns have been built and the exhibit and floral hali practically remodeled and the entire grounds put in first class condition. The entire premises have been whitewashed and the grounds are the best in the entire State, being practically in the business district and only a very short walk from each railroad termin al. There were so many special exhibits that it is hard to men tion any one individually, how ever. the booth and exhibit of the Standard Oil Company was one of the best on the grounds. The exhibit was under the su pervision of Mr. Watson and nu-Ji merous prizes were offered by them in guessing the attendance each day. The lucky ones in guessing were Miss Christine Kennedy, Mrs. F. M. Hudson. Miss Ethel High, Miss Florence Wiley, Miss Mildred McCord and Mrs. John McCullar. Attention has been called through these colums in last week’s issue as to the exhibits of the corn clubs, canning clubs, and agricultural shows. The carnival was first class in every ' respect and is a distinct credit to | the fair. Contracts were made' for a flying machine, and so ad vertised extensively, but on Mon day night at 7 o’clock a telegram was received from the flying people advising that they could not fill thei- dates. While this was a disappointment it is no fault of the Association and no fair minded person will hold the I fair responsible for the failure of the flying machine. Let us all get together individ ually and collectively and put on the biggest and best fair that Tnnpln anrl thp pntirp nnvthprn part of Miss, has ever seen for 1917. R. H. Mullins.
