D.SCHOULER HEART AND HAND UNITED A BEAUTIFUL EVENT AT TENARY LAST WEttK CBN- Marriage of Mr. J. A. McMillan and Miss Sallie Thornburg -Unique and Attractive Decorations A Tobr to Canada. It is our pleasure tod xy to record the happy union of heart and hand of two more of our popular young people. We refer, of course, to the beautiful event which occurred on November 2oih, at 4:30 o'clock, at Centenary church, where and wben Mr. John A. McMillan and Miss Sallie Thornburg, youngest daughter of Mrs. Capt. W. L. Thornburg, were joined in the bonds of marriage, in the presence of a large assembly of friends and well wishers. The ceremony was impressively per formed by Rev. S. B. Turrentine, pastor of Centenary, assisted by Rev. Rob't. E. Caldwell, pastor of the First Presbyterian church. The attendants were Mr. James M. Leniz, best man, and littie Miss Kathleen Smith, niece of the bride, m tid of honor. The ushers were Messrs. J. A. Mc Dowell, O. B. Eaton, L. M. H. Rey nolds aud T. B. Crawford. The pages were Masters Brantley Smith and Eugene Gray. The decorations were quite unique and beautiful and elicited general admiration. Ttie eye was first at iracted by a tail arch of chrysanthe mums, the base of which rested upon the front of the platform. Against lie rear wall, about six feet back of lie arch, was a solid background of evergreens, reaching some fifteen feet n heighti! and coming to a point at the top. Between the arch aud back ground were several pretty palms, artistically arianged and giving the eture the appearance or a beautiful tropical bower. The altar was fes- ooued with evergreens and upon either side of the front were banks of chrysanthemums, the arrangement forming an inviting position for plighting the sacred marital vows. At the appointed hour, the cere mony began by the pages marching down the center aisle and unrolling as they went the white ribbon which cioaed the pews on either side. The pages were followed by the little maid of honor, bearing the wedding ring, attached by ribbon to a single white usebud. arriving at the front of the church, the pages and maid of honor made an "about face" and proceeded to the altar, followed up the center aisle by two ushers, while one usher proceeded up each side aisle. The bride entered from the South vestibule leaning upon the arm of her brother- n-law, Mr. V. U. Wright, and was met in front of the altar by the groom and his best man, who entered from the North annex. Then were uttered t he sweetly solemn words which made the twain one. After which, the exit rom the church was made through the center aisle. The charm of theceremony through out was enhanced by the sweet strains of organ music, produced by the ar tistic touch of Prof. D. T. Huyck. The bride was becomingly attired in a going away gown or handsome green cloth and the little maid of honor was attired in white. The costumes of the pages were true to the characters which they represented. After the ceremony the bridal par ty partook of an elegant luncheon, at the home of the bride's sister, Mrs. A. A. Smith, corner of Fourth and Broad streets, where were also displayed to the invited company the numerous and beautiful bridal presents. ;Mr. and Mrs. McMillan left on the 6:20 train over the Southern for a tour to the former home of the groom, n tfeaverton, Untano, Canada. They will return in about two weeks. The Sentinel joins a host of friends in wishing that the future may hold for the newly married couple a boun tiful store of unalloyed happiness and prosperity.

Thebrilliant radiancecf theelectric lights, mellowed to a soft glow, the clear white light of the wax candles, upheld in seven silver candle sticks, which burned before the beautiful stained chancel window, and just beneath which the super-altar was ar tistically arranged in tropical fruits and flowers. On either side of the silk en draped communion altar, around the marble fount, about the elegant read ing desk and chancel railing the same "glories of autumn" white, yellow and maroon, supported by golden sheaves of wheat, prevailed; while over the spotless draperies the green tracery or delicate vines ran, tne whole making a picture at once so pleasing and beautiful as to elicit unstinted praise and admiration from the large and brilliant audience of friends there assembled to witness the troth plighting of two happy hearts. Whilst awaiting the arrival of the bridal party, Miss Juliet Suttoj, who presided at the organ, charmingly rendered Rubenstein's Offertory in G; Leovd's Te Deum:and presently when the sweet strains of Lohengrin's wed ding march pealed out on the per fumed air, the groom, with his best man, Mr. O.

BISHOP DUNCAN'S SERMON. Stop Abusing the President and Thank God for Such a Glorious Country. During Bishop Duncan's Thanksgiv ing sermon, at Reidsvllle, Thursdaj he told of the old sister who asked Bishop Early to dinner with her and set before him some fat meat and gravy and corn-bread and said to him: "Brother Early, this is the best I have. If you are a Christian it is good enough for you; if you are not, it is too good for you." He ate with gratitude. The Bishop alsosaid :"A great deal of the dissatisfaction in tne-puonc mind not because the mercies of God are is not plentiful, but it is because one party is in and wants to stay in, and the other party is out, but does not want to stay out. "i think this country is greater than any party in it and It will stand. 1 wish that people would pray to the Lord for sense instead of praying for money. Give me understanding. Lord, is what you should pray. I never doubted that my mother loved me and yet some times she would wake roe up at 11 o'clock at night to whip me. So it makes no difference what God does to me, I know He is good and that he loves me. Brethren, thank God that after serving hard fields if you have no money to leave your children, you can leave them to God's truth. 'When a man get so low down to insult me, I get so high up that be cannot do it. "Instead of going around as an old Democrat, or an old Republican, or old Populist and abusing Grover Cleve land, go into your closet and pray for him and thank God that you have such a glorious country."

A WINSTON COP. How a Fellow on a Bicycle Made the Officer "Get Up and Dust." A good one is told on a Winston cop. While out near ai. a. waiicer x Co. 's factory a few nights ago be heard a police whistle. This was a call for help. The officer started off in a fast walk when he heard two more meant help on With his bat in "William" in the calls given. This double quick time. one band and his other, the cop "split the wind" at a 2:40 gait. When be reached the west mod school he saw a reiiow on a bicy cle going down the bill blow ing a whistle and riding on fast time. The officer became disgruntled but be knew tt was useless to attempt a race with tbe man on the wheel. The old saying, "vengeance is sweet," popped into the cop's mind. Next morning he called on Lawyer Swink, attorney for the city, and asked for information on how be should draw two warrants one to deputize a fel low to catch tbe-man on tbe bicycle, who blew a policeman's whistle, and the second to make the wheelman pay for his naughtiness. Lawyer Swink says this story is no joke. He can name the cop-if it becomes necessary. About the Fife Meeting. The Burlington News strikes the keynote when it says: "Mr. W. P. Fife, who is well-known here, has just closed a meeting at Winston, where nearly 900 professed conversion. That was a wonderful meeting he held, but tbe real amount of good done will be seen by the number who join some church and become working, sticking members, and show by their actions that tbey are wbat they profess. The greatest evil attending such, is the number who go in the church on the tidal wave and become a dead weight on the church.'.' BUT HE KE EPS IN TRAINING "WESTERN M. E. CONFERENCE.

It was a bright, happy, lovely day The weather was all that ci uld be desired crisp, frostv air and the bi Ightest of sunshine. All tbe banks, warehouses and many of the stores were closed and the streets presented somewhat of a Sunday appearance. As all the Meth odist pastors are attending Coufereuce, the Methodist church bells were silent, but the members of that church mingled with the other cungregatii ns. Services were held at the Moravian Home and Calvary.) First Presby terian, b irst Baptist, and Lutheran churches Contributions were made at all of the churches where services were held for charitable purposes.

Some twenty dos Ulied the air with music for two or three hours. Cunning Reynard, after giving the d'igs a pretty race. mounted a tree. The dugs were held while the fox was made to leave his place of rescue, another race followed and it was great. The amusement ended near Maple Springs church. where the little animal was overtaken by its pursuers. Thanksgiving dinners, as usual. were numerous, and the turkey received merciless dissection at the hotels, boarding bouses and private houses. All in all, Thanksgiving 1895, will long be remembered in the Twin-City as a bright and happy event. THE Y. M O. A. Election ' of Officers An Adva.ee Movement Proposed.

Tbe Handsome Residence of Mrs. M. E. Carter Burned. The handsome residence of Mrs. M E. Carter on French Broad avenue was destroyed by fire Friday morn ing, in Ashevilie, about 3 o'clock. Mrs. Carter aud her seven children, her brother, C. T. Rawles, aud two ser vants were sleeping in the house when the tire broke out. Mr. Rawles was awakened by tbe smoke and aroused the other members of tbe household. Their escape by 6tairway being cut off. rescue was affected by the aid of ladders. Practically noth ing was saved, the members of the family not having time to secure gar ments other than their night clothes. The bouse cost about six thousand and was insured for four thousand, with one thousand on the furniture. The latter figure is far short of tbe value of the furnishing. The origin of tbe fire is unknown. Death of a Daughter of Got. .Stokes.

BOYS AND GIRLS DEBATE. "Is Co-Ed neat Inn De1rabl In Pigher Institutions ?' ' Co-Eiucation desirable in high er institutions?" This was the question the nintb grade girls discussed in their final de bate for the term out. at West End Friday afternoon The debate was admirable in every particular In fact it 8urpssed all previous efforts of either the girls or boys. May Barber was leader on the affir mative side, and Lillian Walker on the negative. Their colleagues ably sus tained them, and the decision was close, but was nually rendered in favor of tbe negative. The principal argument advanced, favoring co-education in higher Insti tutions were, that, since boys aud girls are to live together all through life, they should be educated together; that isolation of the sexes begets mis trust, wrong ideas and wrong opinions as to the pr..per relations of the sexes; that co-educaiion makes bos uiun manly and mrl more womanly, and that it is more ec domical, at the same time uffordiug the best advant ages.. Numerous instances of the great success of such co-educational inuiu tious as Cornell UuiVersity, of Michi gan and others were given and these arguments were very tffective. The negative side took the ground that those who lavor co-education are try ing to develop ooys into men and girls into women by the same process, ana that tins is a crime against na ture Tney also cofiteuded that ming liu of ihe .ex iu m; ho il had a ten dency to make girls ujaM-ulme. and bojs feminine in their waye; that even if Hie sexes are to live together, ttie do no I. have I lie same kind ol nik in pi-riiiim, and (bai in-ie.io ol op. mi. g m-ile coilt ges to girls, wr outiht to make the higher institutions for gins, belter Mr B J.

Dun & Co.'s wtekly review of trade, issued today, says: Business has not im proved, though there is very little ctiange except in the shrinkage of prices, which a period of inaction naturally causes. After the extraor dinary buying of the summer and early fall, a marked decrease was in evitable, and it is yet too earlv in most branches of business to ju3ge how far the future was anticipated in purchases. Retail stocks are still reported full in nearly all branches, with delayed distribution in many on account of unfavorable weather. The movement of crops is only fair, both cotton and wheat being largely kept back in t he hope of h gher pr ces. and there is a prevalent feeling that foreign imports will fall off.
