Pretty Noonday flarriace st Um EpU- coptl Church Wednesday Tils LQa Tucker Becomes the Bride of Mr. W. At. Chalmers, of WUconstif. A pretty noonday marriage was solemnized at the Church of the Holy Innocents yesterday, uniting one of Henderson s loveliest young daugh ters and a prominent young business man of Wisconsin, formerly of V ir- finia. Tne contracting parties were Ir. William Murray Chalmers and miss faiza Cummings Tucker. The prominence and popularity of these two young people attracted a large and fashionable audience to witness the ceremony. There weie several out-of-town visitors. The altar was beautifully decorated for the occasion with' palms, ferns and lovely white flowers, and with the burning candles presented a pretty and entrancing scene. Rev. Julian E. Ingle performed the ceremony, Miss Alice Cheek presiding at the organ. To the soft strains of Men delssohn's wedding march the ushers, Mr. Eugene Gary, of New York City, Dr. Edward B. Tucker, Mr. Augustus Moore and Mr. E. G. Landis marched up the centre aisle and took positions on each side of the chancel. Then followed the maid of honor, Miss Julia Tucker, sister of the bride. The bride entered leaning on the arm of her brother, Dr. John Hill Tucker, by whom she' was given away. . lhe groom, accompanied by his best man, Dr. Howson Cole, of the United States navy, entered from the vestry room and joined them at the altar. The words that made the twain one were then spoken, they be ing married with a ring. The bride wore a magnificent Parisian gown of accord ian pleated chiffon and point ace over white silk with bridal veil i caught with a beautiful diamond pin. She carried a lovely bouquet of lilies 1 of the valley, with fern sprays tted with tulle. Immediately after the marriage Mr. and Mrs. Chalmers left on the North bound train for an extended bridal tour, at the conclusion of which they will make their home in Sparta, Wis consin. Miss Tucker was one of Henderson's loveliest and -most popular young ladies. She is the eldest daughter of the late Dr. John H. and Mrs. Willie Hill Tucker, and is greatly beloved or her beautiful character and wo manly worth. .

This is a gain of $2,741.17 over the collections for May, 1903. As an indication of the steady increase in the receipts of the department it is of interest to note that the receipts for the new year since April 1st are over $5,000 more than for the same period last year. Commissioner Young says there is every indication now that the grand total of receipts for the year will be $200,000 as compared with $174,000 for last year. SELLING AT COST!
