solemnized was that of Miss Blanche T.
Thistlewood, of Mounds, to Dr. Flint
Bondurant which took place Monday

with white carnations, ferns, palms and
Southern smilax, an altar being formed
of tall pines and Easter lilies, before
which the ceremony took place. The
couple stood under a bower of smilax
from which was suspended an immense
wedding bell of white carnations.

dered Mendelssohn's Wedding March.

during the pledging of the vows and as
. the couple left the church Mrs. Galigher
played Lohengrin's Wedding March.
The beautiful ring service of the
Methodist Episcopal Church was im
pressively read by the Rev. J. A. Tay
lor, district superintendent of the Meth
odist Episcopal Church, assisted by the
Rev. M. II. Loar pastor of the church.
The ceremony was very quiet on account
of the recent death of the groom's sister,

by only the immediate relatives.

tiful and popular young woman. She
spent several seasons in Washington,
D. C, with her father during which
time she was prominent in social circles
there. She attended the Cincinnati
Conservatory of Music at Cincinnati,
Ohio, a number of winters and belongs
to some of the social clubs here.
The groom is the eldest son of Dr.

The Gem Theatre presented to its
patrons Wednesday night the photo
drama, "Tess of the D'Urbervilles,'
with Mrs. Fiske in the title role. This
great reel was made under the direc
tion of Daniel Frohman, with Mrs.
Fiske in the part she created from the
book, supported by the players of the
Famous Film Co. Thirty years ago
Minnie Maddern was a popular actress
in the smaller circuits strictly one-
night 'stands. She was practically un
known to the leading play houses, and
Frohman, Palmer, Daly and others of
the leading managers were unaware of
her prowess. Suddenly in the role of
Tess she leaped to fame in a single
night, and from that she became one
of America's greatest actresses, consid
ered by some of the critics without an
equal in emotional work. The film
shows the actress in the part which
brought the reward of a lifetime of ap
plication and study to her art. Since
that time she has created other parts
equally if cot more famous, notably
the character of Becky Sharp, adapted
from Vanity Fair. This is one of the
mostwondorful characterizations known
to the stage. It is the soul and em
bodiment of Thackaray's genius. The
film seen here is also a wonderful pro
duction, both in player talent and scenic
investiture. It is one of the great films
of the day, and quite a number were
pleased with the presentation notwith
standing the condition of the weather.

The Truth About the
" '' Carnegie Library.
In the spring of 1910 the Union City
papers published the statement that Mr.
Carnegis had given the town $10,000 for
a library. A short while after this, at
Mrs. Seid Waddell's invitation, I joined
her, Mrs. Massengill and Mrs. Page in
a visit to the public school on some W.
C. Tr U. business. I did so readily, be'
cause I wanted to ask Mr. Nute (having
been told he was the proper one to see)
about a corner in the library for South
ern relics, having gotten the idea from
other cities and towns, notably Jack
son, Tenn. This town is justly proud
of her collection and was reported to be
negotiating with Dr. E. B. Little fori is
valuable war relics, he preferring to let
bis home town have them if it could be
arranged. I also had most valuable
material entrusted to myeare and was
anxious to secure a safe and suitable
place for them. When asked about
this corner, Mr. Nute very readily gave
his consent and approval not the slight
est intimation that he had not full au
thority. When the house was com
pleted a strong committee was formed,
composed of Miss Mary Lawson, chair
man; Mrs. Irene Dahnke, treasurer;
Mrs. Lula Edwards, secretary; Mrs
Waddell and Miss Mary Swiggart. At
the first and only meeting, in the Sun
day school room of the Methodist
Church, it was planned to give an en-
tertainmeht to make money with which
to buy books for our Southern corner.
Miss Lawson then saw Mr, Nute about
the exact location in the building, when
he referred her to Mr. Tisdale, who, he
said, was the proper person to apply to,
as he bad no authority in the matter.
At the appointed time Miss Lawson,
Mrs. Gibbs and I met Mr. Nute at Mr.
Tisdale's office and we all went to the
building where we agreed on the corner
for Southern relics, provided we fur
nished first-class cases for them, which of
course we expected to do. At the same
time we were given to understand that
we could not meet there, so we stopped
right then and there not another com
mittee meeting, nothing. However, I
went to the Mayor and asked him many
questions, the first of which was, "Into
whose hands did the Carnegie money
pass?" Sometime later a Parent-Teacher
Association was organized here and Mrs.
Waddell was, asked by the chairman to
ask permission from the Mayor to be
allowed to meet in the Carnegie Library,
as part of the work was to be the story
hour for children, which, in most every
place owning one, is conducted in the
public library. She was refused. Hear
ing of this, I went to the Mayor for an
explanation. He said: "Mr. Nute does
not want you to," which brought on
another pertinent question: "What has
Mr. Nute to do with it?" His answer
was, "He got the library for Union
We now began a correspondence with
Mr. Carnegie to find out just how and
for what purpose, the library had been
given. In the meantime we had re
ceived Nashville's equivalent, also Jack
son's and Hickman's. The library at
Hickman differed from the others in
this, that it was gotten by the school
board, elected by the people and ac
countable to them. This school board
pledged $1,000 a year for the mainte
nance of their library, to come out of the
school tax, as they are empowered to
do. When finished, even to the steel

name, it was opened to the public.
Some time ago Mr. Nute sent a state
ment to both town papers giving an ac
count of Mrs. Pearl Williams Kelly vis
iting the library and her approval of all
she saw the use of one room as a
schoolroom by day and a lecture room
at night. As soon as I read Mr. Nute's
statement concerning Mrs. Kelly, I
called up the Mayor for permission to
use that room for a lecture to be given
under the auspices of the Obion County
Historical Association. He was very
courteous but asked for time to consider.
The next evening he called me and sug
gested that I ask the school board or
the superintendent. Whereupon I called
Mr. Walker, who was also most courte
ous, but gave me no satisfaction. The
next evening he asked me what the
other members of the school board and
the superintendent had said about it. I
told him when the Mayor referred me
to the school board I had-no thought
of asking anyone but the chairman of
that board. So the matter rested, and
I have so far not received an answer.
However, we found out from Mr.
Carnegie all we wanted to know about
the library, aud the whole correspond
ence may and ought to be seen by
every citizen having a particle of inter
est in the good namq of Union City.
