DRY 00008 STORE MARRIED IN BATESVILLE. Mr. Peyton V. Ferguson of Gates, | Tennessee and Miss Allie Ward Were Wed in Batesville Mon day Evening. Saturday, December ‘27tb, Miss Allie Ward and Mr. Peyton V. Ferguson of Gates, Tenn., who has been the guest of T. T. Ward and family, went to Bates ; ville on a visit to the Ruddle family and just before returning Monday af ternoon, repaired to the Methodist parsonage, where they were united in marriage at 5 p. m. by Rev. Z. T. Bennett, pastor of that church, a li cense having been previously pro cured of the county clerk of that county. Returning on the evening passen ger, they brought the first news of the plighting of their troth, which came as a surprise to both relatives and friends, who were unaware that between these distant cousins an at tachment had sprung up that should lead them to the altar. They are guests for the present of the bride’s parents and are the recip ients of the congratulations of many friends, who with the Independent wish for them a bountiful portion of the riches, pleasures and happiness of life. Mr. Ferguson is a pleasant young gentleman, whose occupation is farm ing and hails from our neighbor state of Tennessee. The bride is the oldest daughter of our fellow editor, Mr. T. T. Ward of the Herald, and possesses those graces of disposition and char acter that should make happy the home of the newly married. MORNING STAR COMPANY’S INTENTION. When questioned about the Morn ing Star line by a reporter, Edwin Chadiek, known as the father of the Choctaw, said: “Oh, I have nothing to do with that. I made a survey of that line for some English parties. I made a re port of it. Col. Shalenberger made the survey for me and we located a 1 per cent grade from Newport to Yell ville. If built, that road will traverse a country rich in zinc, marble and tim ber. I never saw finer white oak than along that line. The marble appears to be in inexhaustive quantities. There is a fine quarry of gray marble, and x think there is a whole mountain of it. “That line will always be an inde pendent one. It will never become a part of any great system, for the reason that the parties for whom we made the survey are largely interested in the zinc fields. English zinc is get ing scarce and the question of getting American mineral to England at the lowest cost is one that is attracting a great deal of attention now. The heaviest purchases, of course, will be made from those mines the product of which can be delivered cheapest.” The intention of the promoters of the Morning Star road is to build a line long enough to briug the product of the richest mines of North Arkan sas to Newport, and there connect with a barge line, which will be run in connection with a line of steamers plying between New Orleans and Eu- j rope. MISSOURI PACIFIC CHANGES. General Passenger Agent H. C. Townsend of the Missouri Pacific-Iron Mountain has announced the follow ing appointments, to become effective January 1, 1903: Mr. W. H. Bissland, assistant gen eral ticket agent, St. Louis Mo. Mr. H. D. Wilson, assistant general passenger agent, Memphis, Tenn. Mr. Ellis Farnsworth, traveling pas senger agent, Memphis, Tenn., trans ferred to Denver, Colo., vice Mr. E. E. Hoffman, resigned. Mr. J. P. Pannill, appointed travel ing passenger agent, Memphis, Tenn., to succeed Mr. Farnsworth. The office to which Mr. Wilson has been appointed is a newly-created one. Lucien Wright, at present depot ticket agent of the Iron Mountain in Little Rock, will succeed Mr. Pannill as assistant city passenger and ticket agent at Memphis. SHOT WHILE HUNTING. Little Rock, Dec. 29.—Mort Moore, a baker, who lives at Bentonville, was accidently shot by a companion Sat urday while out hunting. He re ceived a load of shot from both bar rels of a gun in his leg. The wound is a painful one, but not regarded as dangerous. The beautiful display of burnt wood at W. W. Dutton’s affords many a chance for a suitable Christmas pre sent. 200btf EXAMINATION GRADES ANNOUNCED. In the regular examinations of the Public School, held Dec. 18, 19, 22 and 23, the following report is made for the ninth and tenth grades by Prof. A. Woods, superintendent: “In the tenth grade Jamie Irby leads with an average of 96.5. Gar land Hurt ranks second with 95.5. Effie McCollum, who did not take the full examination, leads in algebra with the maximum grade 100. Garland Hurt and EfHe McCollum lead in geometry with 100 to the credit of each. “J8mie Irby and Garland Hurt tie in Latin with 95. Garland Hurt leads in rhetoric with 96.7. “In the ninth grade, Lizzie Irby leads with an average grade of 98.2. James Blackwood is second with 93.7. Lawrence Bailey third with 92.7 and Lyle Croft, fourth with 91.6. “Lizzie Irby leads in arithmetic and physiology with 100 in each, Tommie Thornton, in Latin with 99.4. James Blackwood and Lyle Croft lead in algebra with 97.5 each. “These examinations were con ducted in such a way as to test thoroughly each pupil in the work of the first four months of the term. “The majority of the pupils acquitted themselves with credit. A few fell below the standard required and the causes of these failures are matters that have passed into history. “However, we hope and believe that all will resume work on the 5th of January with renewed energy, and that the final examination of the term will find each one with a flrst-clasB record.” A. Woods, Principal. HELENA’S HEAVY COTTON RECEIPTS. Helena, Dec 29.—In spite of the unsuitable weather for cotton gather ing, hauling and ginning, the receipts at this market continue to be record breakers. At the first of the cotton season it was thought by the cotton kings that the best part of the crop would be out by the first of the new year, but it has developed that in many parts of the country nearly half, or at least a third, of the crop is yet to be picked. It is remarkable the amount of cotton that remains in the boll after the heavy rains that visited this section The second growth of the staple was far beyond the expec f-» Ustw-wx rtf f Rrt cotton fields in western Mississippi look as though it had never been picked this season, though in some places it has been twice picked. FELL BENEATH CARS. Louis Smith, a negro boy living near Auvergne, while attempting to board a moving freight train that was switching in the local Choctaw yards, slipped and fell about three o’clock Monday afternoon. Several cars passed over his left leg just above the knee, crushing the limb to such an extent that amputa tion was necessary, the operation being performed by Drs. Willis and West. The forefinger and thumb up on the right hind were also crushed, requiring their dismemberment from .the body. The negro was doing very well Tuesday morning, but the injuries may yet cost him his life. Miss Eda Bacharach of Clarendon arrived Monday night to visit her friend Miss Blanche Bernstein. Just received a new shipment of Waterman’s Ideal Fountain Pens, the best fountain pen on the market. Guaranteed to give perfect satisfac tion. I. D. Price, sole agent. 193 btf W. C. Wharton, district manager of the Fidelity Mutual Life Insurance Company received a check Tuesday for $1600 to be paid Jno. W. Revels Sr. of Augusta on a policy held by Mary Revels, deceased. At Lake’s Ferry, on the line of the White River Railroad, in Baxter coun ty, a new town has been laid off and will be called Cotter. There is talk of constructing an electric line to con nect the county seat, Mountain Home> with Cotter. Gus Martin has resigned his posi tion as conductor on the passenger of the White and Black River branch of the Choctaw, a position which he has filled capably for several years. His successor has been named and took his new run Sunday. Peter Anderson & Co. of Batesville filed articles of incorporation Monday. The capital stock is $3,000. The con cern proposes doing a general mer chandise business in Batesville. All the stock has been suDscribed and paid in. The corporators are Peter Anderson, D. Ottenheimer, R. Soko losky. LANG INJURED BY FALL. A. J. Lang, representing S. J. Lang & Sons, distillers, of St. Louis, was nursing a very large and painful head Monday, the result of a fall on the icy pavement at the north of the Crown Hotel, Sunday, says the Poplar Bluff Journal. Mr. Lang was on his way to the train, No. 4, intending to go to his home in St. Louis, when he slipped and fell, his head striking the pave ment and cutting a great gash, which required fourteen stitches to sew up. Mr. Lang was carried back to the Quinn and Dr. Adams was called in. The wound, while very painful, will not interfere with Mr. Lang’s duties. MORNING STAR MEETING. There will be a meeting of the di rectors of the Morning Star Railroad to-morrow morning at nine o’clock in this city. The most important feature will be an increase of capitalization from 83,000,000 to 83,600,000. LOCAL HOLIDAY EXCURSION RATES. The Choctaw, Oklahoma & Gulf R.
