THOUSANDS WITNESS CELEBRATION.
companj from Naslmlle, Troop A, and Company B,. Spencer Aikiri. captain, and two cannon were the defenders. Hon. J. H. McDowell, commander-i j-chief, w i t h ; P. N. Matlock and Mark V. Crump giv ing valuable service as aids. The attacking party was commanded by Gen. Ilannab, with national guards, composed of Capt. Alfred Levine's Nashville Grays, Capt. L. P. Dodsoa's Humboldt company, Capt. Chaa. Collins' Jackson com pany and two gatliog guns. The attacking forces were twice re pulsed and on the third charge Capt. Hager came up on the left flank with two companies and Mc Dowell came out on right flank and drove his enemies down the center, and Gen. Hannah hoisted the white flag and surrendered. Capt. J. W. Morton commanded the artillery, with Capt. J. F. Drewry's company of artillery from Chattanooga. This was a very realistic and in spiring event. It demonstrated again the superiority of the men who wore the gray. It showed the valor of Southern blood and stirred the hearts of the thousands who saw them. There were 340 armed men and 40 unarmed in the military organi zations here on the Fourth. The Jackson Drum Corps was another interesting feature of our parade and the exercises on the Fourth. The race event was next, and Sir Walter traveled too fast for the re nowned Whirlpool. ' McKenzie base ball team won a hard fought battle from Martin. It was a close game, resulting in a score of 6 to 5. Men who love base ball say it was a great game. The slow mule race was a very amusing feature of the celebration. After supper the fireworks dis play was the greatest ever seen in this city. It was managed by Mr. Geo. Dahnke and a success every way. The Second Regiment Band gave a concert during the evening which was also enjoyed. j The visiting young people, were tendered a ball and reception at the Elk's Club rooms on Wednes day night, and at the opera house the "Power of Love" was rendered to a popular audience a very good play and a very good compauy. So another Fourth has come and gone and we are glad to tender our thanks to the thousands who spent the day with us. Mrs. D. K. Penick was chairman of the parade committee, and the success of this feature goes to her credit. A celebration without a parade is always a failure, and Mrs. Penick has special talent for this kind ot work. The hearts of Union City people are overflowing with gratitude for the valuable assistance rendered our celebration hy ex Gov. Taylcr, Captain Morton, General Gordon, General Hannah and the officers and men who took part in the event. It was the greatest of all our Fourths, and these are the people who made it so. The ladies are also asked to accept our thanks. There was Mrs. Robt. L. Taylor, with whom everybody fell in love who met her. Governor Taylor is noted for his sunshine, but his wife has no lsss ot that happy faculty th a a. he, and has charm and grace and beauty with it, which give her probably the advantage of the ex Governor. Mrs. Stout, Captain Morton's daughter, was also an other charming .lady whose .visit here was very pleasant. In fact all the ladies in the party were indeed welcome. Society.....

Columbian, Club. . It would be difficult to picture in the mind a happier, rr.ore gracious scene than that which thu parlor of Mrs. F. W, Watson presented last Friday afternoon when the Colum bian Club was entertained. The reception ball and parlor were most artistically arranged and bore evidence of both taste and work in their decorations.' Flags and bunting were draped and fes tooned about tbe rooms. Stretched across from each of tbe tour corners of the hall were red, white and blue satin ribbons, terminating with large rosettes. In the center was the Liberty Bell with a ribbon at tached to the clapper and the other end of tbe ribbon resting on the first table, and at a given signal the fair winner lilts her hand and forth 6ends the good news, making every lady change her hand. The chosen floral decorations of this beautifully arranged affair were the dainty and fragrant white and red carnations interspersed with blue torget-me-nots. Many of these were used in the decorations with charming effect, with palms and other tropical plants in the corridors and alcoves. In the din ing room, florally bedecked in red, white and blue, Misses Kathleen Watson and "Annie Marshall dis pensed punch. On the damask covered table was a Battenberg centerpiece over blue satin with a crystal bowl containing orange punch and seeded cherries in an ice boat. A tempting ice course in the chosen colors followed the game, the, cakes representing the Ameri can flag. The favors were tiny flags. which were in the center of the ice, waving, as they waved long years before, a hearty welcome to the ladies twenty and four. Mrs. Watson proved herself an ideal hostess. Cordially and grace fully she expressed the pleasure their presence occasioned. There was not a single detail lacking to make the enjoyment complete. The decorations, the menu, the flags waving, inspired every lady with patriotic zeal and love for ourglori ous country. Besides the members the following guests were present: Mesdames W m. Murphy, St. Louis Tanner Hendricks, Nashville; J. H Arnn, C. W. Miles, D. E. Penick, S. H. Hughes, Dan Beckham", T. E. Marshall, B. F. Beckham, Misses Lizzie Tarns, Josephine Tardiff, Annie Little, Rena Caldwell. Guest. Chafing Dish Club. The club was entertained by Mrs. Paine Bransford at the residence of her mother, Mrs. R. H. Driskill. Whist was the game of the occa sion, and Miss Killough of Trenton cut with Mrs. M. Blanton and won first prize. Mrs. H. T. Butler won the "consolation." Chocolate cream and cake were served. Among the visitors were Miss Killough, Tren ton; Miss Ryan, Terre Haute, and M isses Butler, Pulaski. The meet ing was one of the club successes. Married at Jackson. The Boosters Special has been the means of making two souls happy if nothing else ever came to reward the efforts of tbe advertis ing committee who planned it. Miss Minnie Brown was a passenger on the Booster train and when she reached Jackson Mr. Jesse Wheeler, of Somerville, was . there waiting, by appointment it is to betaken for granted, and it was not long before they found the minister. Dr. Sav age was the clergyman tying the knot and it was done at the pastor's residence in Jackson. Mrs. Wheeler was a resident ot this city for several years and a very charming and talented young woman. She was a music teacher and a fine pianist, popular in many ways, and the wedding, while a surprise, brought her scores of con gratulations. Mr. Wheeler is an electrician in the employ ot the Cumberland Telephone & Tele graph Co. and we understand a very excellent gentleman and a very efficient workman.
