Three h usd red years ago Hendrix Hudson, Dutch discoverer, sailed in his good ship "Half Moon" through New York Bay and up the river which hence forth bore his name. One hundred years ago, Robert Ful ton's clumsy little boat, the "Clermont," sailed from New York to Albany; the first journey ever made by a steamboat. These two events, the two great men and the two famous boats, will be made the subject of a double historical cel ebration Sept. 2äth to Oct. Oth; it'will be one of the most unique events ever held in America. The two boats have been reproduced —the "Half Moon" in Holland and the "Clermont" in New York. The former was brought over this time on the deck of an ocean liner instead of riding the billows as she did three centuries ago. The naval parade up the Hudson Riv er will include a grand naval display in which ships from aU the navies of the world will take part. The greatest fleet of American warships ever assem bled will participate in the event. No more interesting contrast can be imagined than that of the little "Cler mont" and the queer- looking "Half Moon" with the dreadnaughts of the navy and the great oeean liners. The "Mauretania" and "Lusitania," largest of the oeean leviathans, are 790 feet long; the "Half Moon" was 6S feet and the "Clermont" 150 feet. Hart Schaffner St Marx commissioned a prominent New York artist to make a picture of the ooming pqçade up the Hudson River. TJ»e artist personally yisited t^e çcpro^uced "Half Moon" and •^Clermont" anfl has qccqrately por trayed tbeçn in a yiyifl apd interesting picture, wtycii tl;ey sent to J- Kantro yitç, the eçelqtqve dealer of their ex œilènt clothes in Greenwood, and which appears in this issue of The Oommon wealt h.

Sanders and Miss Yeba Gist boarded the west-hound Southern train to Green ville, where they culminated an affaire d'armor of long standing, wish of the oride that the wedding be an unostentatious affair.

' This happy couple was married at the pretty home of Mrs. H. L. Weatherbee, sister of the bride, who resides in that city. Only a few immediate friends of the family, and Messrs. W. M. and G. W.
