The Bolivar Bulletin.!
Hugh Williams, Editor. Progress Telkpiioxe No. 17. Friday, November 22, 1901. The Bulletin acknowl edges the receipt of valuable public documents from our Congressman, Hon. M. R. Patterson. The Nashville American says: " So far as we have been able to see, not a mem ber of the Legislature who has been asked about it, is in favor of Gilmer Smith's extra legislative session. None of the country papers favor any such unwise and co3tly pro ject," The price of cotton con tinues low. But little of the staple has been marketed in Bolivar, and we understand that receipts at other points in Hardeman are light. All who can afford to do so are holding for higher prices. The result is that business is dull. Jackson District Appointments. The Memphis Annual Conference of the M. E. Church, South, closed its sixty-second session at Dyersburg Monday evening.

"Aunt Sophronia at the Opera" by Misses Eva Curliu aud Frank Cor dle, was both realistic and laugh able. Rev. C. S. Ware, in a few well chosen remarks, stated the aim and purpose of Arbor Day, and in neat language showed the lesson to j be learned from trees and aumon- ished the pupils to love, protect ana reveience them. "At the close of his remarks and after a song by the senior girls, the pupils and visiting friends and patrons went down to the campus, where places had been prepared for the trees to be planted.

The special train carrying mem bers of the St.Louis Merchants' and Manufacturers' Association arrived in Bolivar Saturday morning at 8.45 on schedule lime. The delegation, which was on a tour South in the interest of the Association and at the same time takiDg advantage of the opportunity to advertise the St. Louis World's Fair, was met at the depot by a large committee of our prominent citizens. Headed oy the 1st Regiment Band, of St. Louis, they marched up Market street to the courthouse, where an immense crowd of people had assemb'ed to greit them, including some of our fair ladies. The address of welcome was delivered by Mr. C. A. Miller in a happy manner, and was fitting ly responded to by a member of the delegation. During their short stay of" forty-five minutes the visit rs were given a glimpse of our city and introduced to many of our citizens. They were a clever, whole-souled. set of representative business men of a great city aud our only regret is that we did not have more time in which to become better acquaint ed. They returned to the depot in carriages. An unfortunate accident happened just before reaching the station. The tongue of one of the vehicles broke, frightening the horses and caused a runaway, iti which the occupants were thrown out and one of them hurt, though not seriously, we are glad to learn. The delegation expressed themselves as greatly pleased with their recep tion here, aud highly praised the hospitality of our people. Among our distinguished visitors Saturday was Mr. Abner II. Dun can, for several years a citizen of this county. v hile here he was the guest of Mr. W. J. Redd, his former partner in the mercantile hu&ineas at-Whiteville. -' This was their""first rneeting in twenty-five years. Mr. Duncan went to White ville in 1866 and engaged in the mercantile - business under the firm name of Strow & Duncan. In the spring of 1867 the interest of Mr. Strow was purchased by Messrs. T. A. Green and W. J. Redd, and the style of the firm was changed to Redd, Duncan & Co. In 1873 the business was discontinued and Mr. Duncan moved to Henry county, Tenn. Shortly afterwards he be came a member of the Paris Medi cine Co. (whose president is Mr. E. W. Groves, also a former resident of this county), with headquarters at St. Louis. Mr, Duncan is president of the Mayfield Woolen Mills, the largest factory of its kiud in Amer ica. He is one of the most public spirited, promiuent and wealthy citizens of St. Louis. To the Public. Allow me to eay a few words in praise of Chamberlain's Cough Rem edy. I had a very severe cough and cold, and feared I would get p leu monia, but after taking the second dose of this medicine, I felt better. Three bottles of it cured my cold and the pains in my chest disap peared entirely. I am most respect fully yours for health, Ralph S. Meyers, 74 Thirty-seventh streei Wheeling, West Va.

The Episcopal Church on Tues- day afternoon was the scene of a ; beautiful and impressive ceremony, ; the marriage of Miss Kate Miller Smith and Mr. Morton Stewart! .uewis, oi .uzaDem, JN. j. LoDg before the appointed hour the church was filled to overflowing with friends and relatives of the contracting parties. As prelimina ry music, Lohengrin's Bridal Cho rus was beautifully rendered by Mrs. Malkoff, assisted by the Misses Pearson, of Port Gibson, Miss. Promptly at 4 o'clock, the bridal party was ushered in to the strains of Mendelsshon's Wedding March. The ushers, Messrs. R E. Durreti and J. II. Bills, came first and stood at the ribbons, while Miss Frank Smith aud Thos. R. Smith took seats to th3 left, followed by the bride elect on the arm of her elder brother, lion. G. P. Smith, who stood at the foot of the chancel steps and met the groom and his best man, Mr. Robert Lewis, his brother, who came from the vestry room. When the bride was given away" the couple ascended the steps to the altar railing for the betroth al. The artistic effect of the soft radiance of many candles aud the white and yellow floral decorations upon the couple kneeling at the al tar was most pleasing. During the ceremony, "Simple Aveu," by Thome, was rendered. The bride was gowned in rtray elamine, hat and gloves to match, and carried a boquet of pink roses. Her principal ornament was a hand somely Chinese-carved ivory belt pin, a family heirloom. At the conclusion of the ceremo ny, the party left the church to the closing strains of the March in re verse order to their entrance. A reception to their relatives and some invited friends was given at the home of the bride. Many valuable and handsome presents were received, among the number rare bits of china and glass ware, family relics given by an aunt in Iowa. An uuusual present was a genuine Chinese mandarin's robe, a gorgeously hand-embroidered af-fair,-tbe dragon's head not dmitted. The bride is the youngest daught er of the late Thomas It. Smith," a well known lawyer and judge of Memphis courts. She has been a social favorite not only in Bolivar circles but inMemphis and Nashville as well. For the past two years tbe has taught at Tairytown, N. Y. She is a lady of more thau ordinary attainments, and is a descendant of one of the oldest families of Bath, Me.
