Wednesday evening; August 25, 1920
at 8 o’clock occurred the marriage
ceremony uniting in the holy bonds of
matrimony Charles H. Alexander and
Miss Annie Piper. The ceremony took i
place at the home of the bride’s par-
ents, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Piper, in the
presence of a few relatives and a very
few close friends.
The wedding march" announced the .
approach of the bridal party. Mr.
Wyley Shurtleff was best man, he J
and Mr. Alexander having been in
training camps together. Miss Dicy
Smith was brides maid, Dicy and the
bride being school chums from child-
hood. Rev. W. J. Johnson officiated
in a very impressive ceremony, while
Miss Minnie Piper, sister of the bride,
rendered the music during the cere- j
The bride is the daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. V/. A. Piper and is a very
charming and attractive young lady,
having been reared in Adamsville com
munity. The groom is the son of Mr.
and Mrs. T. H. Alexander of Adams-
ville, and is a young man of noble
character and high ideals. We think
that he has been lucky in winning
Miss Annie for his bride. May they
be happy and prosperous as they jour-
ney through life.
Immediately after the ceremony,
Miss Robertine McCann, a cousin of
the bride, rendered a splendid reading.

SUFFRAGE VALID SAYS ALICE
Washington, D. C., Sept. 1.—After
a long-distance telephone conversation
today with Alice Paul, chairman of
the National Woman’s Party, now in
New Yourk City, it was announced at
headquarters of the Woman’s Party
that so secure is the belief in the legal-
ity of the ratification of the suffrage
amendment by 36 States and of.Col-
by’s proclamation that no active cam-
paign for a 37th State is planned. This
applies even in the cases of Connecti-
cut and Alabama, "where special ses- j
sions have been called for September ,
“Legality of Tennessee’s ratifica-
tion can not be questioned and the ac- j
tion of the House-yesterday can only !
be considered ineffective;’ Miss Paul ;
said. "The women of America are ,
now enfranchised, through the ratifi- |
cation proclamation under the law of
Miss Paul’s opinion is sustained by
the attitude of the State Department,
and by legal authorities of National
reputation, who said today that a Leg-
islature can not legally rescind its ac-
tion on a Federal amendment after
proclamation. Secretary Colby, when
asked what the. State Department
would do in the matter, said:
“There is nothing for the depart-
ment to do. It has already acted on
a properly certified state of facts.”

VILLA’S FOLLOWERS RETIRING
Mexico City, Aug. 27.—Work of
mustering out the followers of Fran-
cisco Villa, the former rebel chieftain,

halito, State of Durango, according to
a report from General Eugenio Mar-
tinez, who superintended the opera-
All of Villa’s men surrendered their
arms and ammunition and received
pay for three ''months. The balance
of their year’s pay, which was promis-
ed, will be given them later. Officers
were allowed to retain their pistols
for self defense, and all the men were
given safe conducts and transporta-
tion to their farms.
All took an affectionate farewell of
Villa", who advised them to avoid poli-
tics and devote themselves to rustic
pursuits. Villa and General Martinez
will go tomorrow to Canutillo, State
of Durango, where the former will be
established on a farm.

Tuesday afternopn and evening the
ladies Auxiliary of the Presbyterian
church broke the monotony of the
mid-summer season by arranging for
a social affair at the home of the
president of the Auxiliary, Mrs. R.
B. Senterfitt, and it proved to be a
most enjoyable occasion. All the dif-
ferent church societies were repre-
sented in the afternoon, which gave
them opportunity to dispuss their
church affairs in general, and perhaps
get new ideas from each other.
The rooms were beautifully deco-
rated with roses, zenias, pot plants
and ferns, and the well appointed
home was a delightful place for the
The first number on the program
in (the afternoon was given by little
Bess Northington, who sang an act-
ing song with her doll, and was ac-
companied by her sister, Helen North-
ington on the piano. Miss Prima
Baker rendered several piano selec-
tions and Miss Elizabeth Townsen
favored the guests with several vocal
selections, and Miss Edwina Hocker
gave several readings, all of which
were thoroughly enjoyed. Besides
this part of the program, the piano
player and victrola furnished music
throughout the entertainment.
An amusing feature of the after-
noon was the “grab-bag”—10c a grab
and take chances on your luck! The
funny part was when the dainty look-
ing packages were undone, some-
times they turned out to be a “sell,”
and then the joke was on the one who
grabbed. Mrs. Arthur Frazer had
charge of this part of the program
and she was successful in making it
an attractive feature of the afternoon.
Mrs. Senterfitt is a charming host-
ess, and on this occasion was ably as-
sisted by Mrs. Bess Northington, and
they exerted themselves in making
this occasion unusually pleasant. Aside
from the social success, the financial
part of the entertainment was very
satisfactory also. The sum of $35.00
was received from the grab-bag and
free will offering.
Refreshments of ice cream and cake
were served on the cool back porch
to the guests. The everting part of
the entertainment was not so largely
attended, but quite a few men were
PICNIC A GREAT SUCCESS
Between 250 and 300 people attend-

one had a real, genuine good time.

of amusement that always insures a

Dr. T. F. Sessions, vice president
of Southwestern University at George-
town, preached at the Methodist
church Sunday night. The main audi-
torium was full and a few seats in
the Sunday school room were occupied
which demonstrated the fact that Dr.
Sessions is a man of recognized abili-
ty as a preacher and the possessor of
numerous friends in Lampasas. His
sermon was a simple truth told in an
interesting and helpful manner, the
product' of an analytical mind, giving
a word picture of some of the psycho-
logical facts that have come under his
observation. He named his subject
“The Psychology of Loneliness,” and
deduced many interesting thoughts
and experiences that were peculiar
and pathetic. He emph^si.^ed “the
loneliness of sin” and gave striking il-
lustrations of its influence upon the
human mind and body. He used for
his text two Scripture quotations,
“And He trod the winepress of loneli-
ness,” and “I am not alone, but the
Father is with me,” as the companion
