Death of Hiss Ware.
At the residence of Micr Hither,
H. M. Ware, about 9 p. m. Sat-
urday Oct. 3, Miss Jennie Ware
clostd her eyes in death. Sill' was
a voune ladv of rare qualities of
head and heart, and much lo-ed
by all who knew her. From
childhood she had been an exem-
plary member of the Baptist
church, an earnest and devoted
worker in the Sunday school. She
was about 21 years of age just on
the threshold of a womanhood full
of promise of a lovely and useful
life, when the Heavenly Father
called her up higher. She was
laid to rest in Bartlett cemetery
Sunday at 4 p. in. in the presence
of a large concourse of sorrowing
friends with whom the Tribune
joins in . profound sympathy for
the bereaved family.
The Rev. Mr. Blaycock of
Heidenheimer conducted the fun-
eral services, in an impressive and
Ice Cream Supper.
On to-morrow (Saturday) night
there will, bo an ice oream supper
at Lopo Star-school House, the
proceeds to go to and seating tho
building, All cordially invited to
A New invention.
Chas. Ferriott, of this place, has
a new invention in the way of
wood-sawing machine. It is a
simple, but spendid machine and
well worth the time of seeing it.
There were about 100 bales of
cotton brought from Florence this
week and sold to Bartlett buyers.
The reason of this is that Bartlett
always has buyers with the money,
and pay more (or cotton than any
other toWn in the county.
Good For Your Boy.

The store of Mr. W. W. Wal-
ton was visited by an unsuallyy
large crowd, especially ladies, on
Wednesday the occasion being
the fall opening of this popular
emporium of millinery and ladies
furnishings. There has never been
a better and more attractive dis
play there of new styles and many
expressions of admiration were
heard by those who attended. The
millinery department presided ov-
er by Miss Lindsey was elaborate-
ly decorated and the effect on the
eye was most pleasing, To tell of
the many beautifully tnmed hats,
all of which are strictly up to the
latest styles, is too Hurculean a
task to be encompassed in limited
space and for one to fully appre-
ciate the display must see it, and
those who have not, should call
now and be convinced, Mr. Wal-
ton is to be congratulated on his
millinery the high quality of goods
and low prices, The department-
is elaborate in every way, being
in charge of Miss Lindsey, recog-
nized as one of the most expert
millint rs in the state. If you need
any headgear you should, see her.
Dallas, Tex., Oct. 6. A large
state meeting of leading anti-pro-
hibitibnistsis being held here today J
to try to devise plans of checking
the growth of prohibition in Tex-
as, Representatives from all parts
of the state were present, includ-
ing former Lieutenant Governor
George C. Pendleton of Belton
and State Senator Wilacy of Port-
land who was the author of the

At the Methodist church on
last Wednesday evening at 8:30
o'clock, in the presence of a large
crowd of relatives, friends and
acquaintances, Miss Alice Laugh
hn was united in marnago to Mr.
Eugene R. Twitty, Rev. W. C.
Hilburn officiating. The wed-
ding march was played by Miss
Lorena Conoley, and Messrs.
Wheeler and Mitchusson were the
attendants. The altar was beau-
tifully docoiated for the occasion
and the ceremony was a most
impressive one. The bride is the
amiable daughter of Mr. and Mrs
J. M Laughlin, a Christian lady
possessed of all tho traits which
are required to make a true wo-
man. Mr. Twitty is a young
man of moral habits, and Chris
tian character, lfce newly wed-
ded pair start on life's journey
with those qualities that give
promise of a happy and useful
life, which The Tribuno, in com-
mon with many friend9, devoutly
hopes may bo realized.
Georgetown,Tex., Oct. 5. The
total cotton shipments from this
pbce oVer the International and
Great Northern and the Missouri
Kansas and Texas todate is 2688
bales. These figures are far in ex-
cess of shipments to the same date
last yeir, due to the fact that the
product is doing shipped almost
ar rapidly as it is picked, and is
not held back for bettet prices, as
was the case last year. The yield
in this county will be somewha
larger than earlisr estimates, but
there will be practically no top
crop in this section or elseweere
in the county so far as can be as-
certained. Cotton Receipts.

Rov. Waugh of the Christian
church who has been doing most
excellent preaching at the Tab-
ernacle for tho last ten or twelve
days will continue oyer Sun-
day, may bo longer' There hava
been only three or four additions
to this writing but the Evangelist
is strong in the faith that Bartlett
is a promising field for tho gos-
pel, at any rate, that the town
would be greatly benefitted by
the general acceptance of th e,
"old old story."
He has been canvassing and
announced last Thursday nighf;
that ho had in his pocket a sub
scription poper for over S2,500 as
good as gold toward the building
of a house for the church and
that within .tho next three or four
months a house costing S4000.
would be erected on the fire lot
recently purchased of Jno . T 1
The Tribune earnestly hopes
that his most sanguine expecta-
tions may bo realized and that he
may have larger congregations
during tho remainder of his stay
among us. Everybody may at-
tend with the full assurance that
no one will bo offended by any
attack on his religious- views
Mr. Waugh simply preaches the
Ancient Gospel as ho under-,
stands it. Surely no one can be
offondod at this.
On last Sunday afternoon at
tho homo of tho bride's parents,
on Yankee Branch, Mr. Walter
Shirley and Miss Rachel Huggins
both of that community, wore
happily married by Rev, Sam
Rooerts. The Tribune congrat-
ulates them and wiBhes them all
