Cheatham Street : Union City, Tennessee TOLD HIS LOVE ON SIGHT Met Miss Cheatham at Reunion in Memphis. Chicago, Aug. 10, "If you meet a girl, look into her eyes and decide that you love her, tell her so that minute. "Don't wait for her to say yes or no. Take it for granted that she is yours. "Commence immediately to act like she were your property. "All women like to feel as if they be longed to a man. "The girl will soon commence to take your viewpoint of the affair. "It ought not to take any man more than thirty minutes to win a wife. "If the young woman's relatives ob ject, just ignore them." The views of Brig. -Gen. Thomas S. Hutchison, of Tennessee, put into prac tice, won for him a bride, and the cou ple are spending the honeymoon in Chicago. They were married here Sat urday. The bride, who is a daughter of the late Col. Davis W. Cheatham, of Clarksville, Tex., announced the happy event to-day. TOOK THIRTY MINUTES. Gen. Hutchison is president of a big construction firm of Nashville, member of the civil service commission of that city, chairman of the Democratic Execu tive Committee and several other semi official bodies. During the Spanish American war he was colonel of the Second Tennessee Volunteers. He is said to be several times a millionaire. "It was this way," said the general. "I attended the Confederate Reunion at Memphis in June. I was on Gov. Pat terson's staff and my wife was maid of honor from Texas. "The Governor presented me to Miss Cheatham a few minutes after her ar rival in Memphis. I looked into her eyes and saw that I loved her. I pushed her out of the crowd, told her that I loved her and asked her to be my wife. I didn't wait for her answer. I took it for granted that it was 'yea.' The whole transaction didn't take more than thirty minutes. When we rejoined Miss Cheatham's friends I acted as if I own ed her. HE WHO HESITATES LOSES. Every man could win a wife if he followed my example. The man who hesitates in warfare or business is lost. Why should he take months in winning a wife. Thirty minutes is long enough. After I had decided that Miss Cheat ham was to be my wife I went immedi ately and told her mother. Mrs. Cheat ham was greatly surprised, but I soon convinced her that I meant business. She finally said something about the wedding taking place in October. I just iguored such talk. Mrs. Cheatham and Louise returned to Clarksville, Tex. I took the next train. Never let the wo P. . Grocer for it BETTER w ;:::::; man of your choice get out of your sight. Keep right after her all the time." Then Gen. Hutchison told of his stay in Clarksville. "I haunted the Cheatham home," he said. "I walked around like I owned the place. Mrs. Cheatham was ada mant, however, and would not consent to our marriage until October. Finally the mother and Louise left for Chicago. To be sure I followed, and by taking ing another line greeted them on their arrival here. HAPPIEST WOMAX. "By this time Louise wanted to get married right away, but her mother held out. Louise told me her guardian, M. L. Sims, was in Denver. I went to that city and invited him to see Louise and myself married. He accepted. I took the next train for Chicago, and told Mrs. Cheatham that Mr. Sims would attend the wedding of her daughter and myself on Saturday. Then she threw up both hands and quit. "My advice to all young men is that when you want a girl just go and take her. Any man would race his neck off to secure a million dollars in a few days why not a wife? A good wife is worth more than millions." Gen. Hutchison is 82 years old. His bride, who is beautiful, cannot be much more than twenty. "Say that I believe all the general says, and I'm the happiest woman in world," was her parting word to a cor respondent. A Doctors Statement. J. R. Wells, M.
