Mr. J. D. Smith, who had been connected with Battey and Hendrix for the last year in the saw mill business, is again a citizen of our town. We are glad to have him with us.

[Most of these weddings are detailed in separate articles in either the January 15, 1884, or January 22, 1884, issue of this paper.]

In conclusion, the chronicler desires to throw out a word of warning to the home boys. The capital prizes in this Matrimonial lottery business are being rapidly drawn, and carried to other points. This order of things should be reversed. Letís see. There is Miss Lucy Peacock married and gone, Miss Mamie Rowland married and gone, Miss Jennie Headden married and gone, and Miss Mattie Hargis married and going, and so we might continue the enumeration. If signs are worth anything others, too, will follow suit at no distant day. Why in the name of common sense donít some of the young lawyers in town get an injunction on this business and have subpoena issue requiring the girls to show cause why they donít marry and stay home? Or if need be require the boys to explain why they donít push their claims?
