They Were Married-
“I pronounce you man wife,” said
Judge Mitchell in his office, Wednes
day morning, to Miss Sallic Stephens
and Mr. Dellic Myrick, a couple who
had stepped into the Judge’s office to
be made one. And they walked down
stairs, up the street, and out into the
broad and glorious country, where
the birds were singing, the golden har
vest being gathered, and the little rills
singing on their way to the sea : where
tho sky was blue, and the air pure ;
where the wild flowers were blooming;
where the gentle breezes were whis
pering through the pines; where the
aroma of new-mown hay permeated
tho surroundings; where the
song of the reaper was heard;
where grazing herds were
seen; where the sunlight danced
thro’ the overhanging boughs;
where the green grass—nature’s car
pet—was spread out; where field and
forest, and hill and dale, alternated;
where the husbandman tilled his fields;
where flower bordered paths meander
ed through wooded lawns, and where
dame nature opened svide her arms to
receive her children. Happy rural
couple? happier, they, than many
who go from hymen’s altar to gilded
halls, where wealth glitters and fashion
sways; happier, they, than many who
start on the untried journey of matri
mony, from flower bedecked chancels ;
happier they, in their rural simplicity,
than many bridal couples who tread
on Brnssells carpets; happier, they,
in their rustic country home, than
many who dwell in stately mansions.
Their wants arc few and simple. A
glittering diamond would have no
special attraction for the bride, and
the groom cares not for a swallow tail
coat. They are satisfied with their
lot, and in this lies the secret of their
happiness. Better ’tis ’tis so.

As the subject of “bonds” or "no
bonds,” for the purchase of Paradise
Park, is agitating the voters of Thom-
villo just now, and as a good many of
the citizens and tax-payers of the city
would like to know the financial con
dition of the city before deciding pro
and con, would it be out of order to
ask the chairman of finance committee
to publish in the city paper a tlridhj
correct, itemized statem'ent of the finan
cial condition of the city, and to in
clude in his report the amounts due on
bonds, notes, mortgages, accounts,
cash on hand, etc.? We ask for this
statement for the reason that only a
short while ago the city couucil was
petitioned by a number of tax-payers
to put lights in a prominent resident
part of the city, and said petition was
refused on the grounds that the city
was in no financial condition to add
the extra expense of putting up new

At the residence ol her husband, on
Warren street, at ten minutes past
one o’clock, yesterday afternoon, Mrs.
L. J. Spitz. The deceased was in her
48th year. For long years she was a
most consistent Christian, and a mem
ber of the Baptist church. The de
ceased had been in failing health for
many years, but bore, throughout these
years of suffering, her afflictions with
that Christian fortitude and resignation
which has characterized Christians
since the plan ol salvation was made
perfect. She IcaVfcs a bright heritage
to her husband and three orphaned
children; a heritage of iove and faith,
a faith which was anchored beyond the
vale. She was a devoted wife and
loving mother, and her vacant chair
will be a sad reminder of an absent
wife and mother.
The spirit was gently loosened from
its tenement of clay, and took its
heavenward flight surrounded by fam
ily and friends.
Her sister, Mrs. Peters, of Washing
ton Ter., is on her way, but will reach
here too late for the funeral, which
will take place from_^hc residence at
9 o’clock this morning.
In the absence ot the Rev. Mr.Wil
liams, pastor of the Baptist cljurch, the
services will be conducted by the Rev.
The friends of the family arc invited
to attend the services.
A COLORED EVANGELIST.
Whose Good Work Has Made Him
Aldany, Ga., August 31.—Albany
is blessed with a most remarkable
colored minister, formerly a missiona
ry in Africa. lie has for thirteen
years been working in the south for
his church, the African Methodist
Episcopal. He has been here but
eight months. From a congregation
of 199 he has increased the member
ship to 268. He has paid off a church
debt of $400 and raised $1,000 for
other purposes, and has by complet
ing the basement of the edifice and
making of it a handsome Sunday
school hall, added another thousand
dollars to the value of the church
building. During his thirteen years’
labor he has received in full church
fellowship 662 members, 730 on
probation, baptized 288 children and
married 106 persons. The churches
he has served have raised $11,954.52.
He has built seven churches and re
paired two. Fie has a bright and
intelligent little son who is already an
exhorter, and following in the useful
footsteps of his father.
The above is taken from the Atlan
ta Constitution. It refers to the Rev.
J. FI. Adams, who was, lor two years,
pastor of St. Thomas A. M. Church in
Thomasville. This earnest worker
made many friends here, both among
the whites and colored, during his stay
in Thomasville. His church in Alba
ny will be dedicated on the second
Sunday in October, by Bishop W. J.
A Straw Bide.
That was a happy party of young
people who indulged in a straw ride,
on Wednesday night. Packed in a
long wagon bed, like sardines, they
whirled along iu the bright shimmer
1 the moonlight, happy as happy
could lie. The party drove out to
Magnolia Park, then hack through
town and out. to the suburban home
of Mr. T. 10. Blackshear, where choic e
refreshments were served, and the
gilded moments passed iu dancing to
tho musicians’ strains. The rofresh-
nieuts were served on the lawn, which
was beautifully lighted up by Chinese
lanterns. Dr. J. G. Hopkins chaperon
ed the party. The following were the
