The Tribune says: An interesting event took place in the rotunda of the girls' dormitory of Southern College Tuesday evening when a small company of relatives and friends witnessed the marriage of Miss Ouida Knight of Sutherland, and Mr. Claude Strother of Hunting tdn, W. Va., both former students of the institution, the ceremony being performed by the college pastor, Rev. R. E. Smith. At 8 o'clock the college orchestra, of which Mrs . Strother has been for several years the efficient accompan ist, rendered a short program, imme diately after which the bridal party descended the broad .stairway while all the time scarcely have time to ! the weaamg marcn irom Lnengnn bury the hatchet.

We hope the United States wil! never be forced to resort to the usj of Lewisite. We would shed no tears if the formula were forever lost. o Suppose there should be a Legisla ture some time that declined to pass ' any measure that would increase taxes! Wouldn't tho members of that Legislature be forced by the people to take all the good offices in the State? A somewhat pathetic sight was that of a Bartow gentleman at a recent, gathering essayingto respond to the toast "Lakeland." Now if a Lakeland man had been asked to do the honors to Bartow, he'd have walked away with it. We love you, little sister why don't you love us? 0 Sometimes we print things that we feel make people wonder as to our sanity, but it is because of the pe culiar ideas some people have about what is proper matter for publicity. They come to us with all kinds of things they want written up. and where no harm can result we print ! what they want, though sometimes with considerable reluctance. We flatter ourselves, though, that we have contributed vastly fo the peace ,' of this community by persuading : people to forego their desire to print sharp and bitter things, and induc ing them to go their way and forget their grievance. In this way we have been able to nip in the bud .many an Incipient enmity, and we believe that la something worth while, . r -o, . . ''''v ' ' About this time in the history of every Legislature the Bolona r, the objects of considerable .prlticjlstn- for real or fancied sins of omission or commission. Tho present Legisla ture is no exception, and there ars many who are insisting that it has done the things it should not have done and left undone the things it should have done. We confess to a disappointment tn its work, because eome legislation of a general nature that seemed very important to the progress and prosperity of the State apparently will not . get 'through. Bui the Legislature is an average body, reither much better nor much worse than its predecessors, its member ship on the whole averaging up to a pretty high standard. It will soon be a thing of tho past, and when thf finished work can be reviewed we can arrive at a better estimate cf it3 value. We kftw there are some good men and big . men in the body, and we know. too. that the work o? these men can be nullified and thwarted by some mighty little mea. maid that, is a confirmed man hater BOWlegs, but why give a man that is a big booster in his home town KNOCKknees. t , The bills you have to pay some law' yers are FEErocious.
