The marriage of Mr. Levy Richardson and Miss Irene Hall was quietly
solemnized Monday, September 26,
in tbe parlor of Rev. T. M, Williams,
the officiating minister. The
were Mr. Mewyn Hall,
brother of the bride, and Miss Elizabeth Smith. Immediately after the
ceremony the bridal party attended
the theatre. Mr. Richardson is a
popular young man, formerly a
resident of Hardin county, but at
present situated in Louisville where
he holds a good position. Miss Hall
is an attractive and intelligent
young lady. The following day they
left for a brief visit to Mr. Richardson's family in Flardin county, after
which they will make Louisville
their future home. Mr. and Mrs.
Richardson both have many friends
who wish them the fullest realization

that provoked more fun and good
will, perhaps, than anything else
was the disposition of a very fine
cake, which had been purchased by
M. F. Johnson on behalf of PresRav,
our County Clerk, and which Mr.
Ray directed should be given to some
young lady. But Mr. Johnson being
a young widower of some sixty-livsummers, or rather winters, said he
was inwttling to choose among such
a crowd of handsome girls as were
present. So. he said he would let the
crowd determine who should have
the cake. He proposed that it should
be settled by a vote of live cents per
vote and was to be given to the best
and most useful young lady. A carving set which had also been bought
for Mr. Ray was to go to the young
lady with the next highest number of
votes. The race soon narrowed down
to Miss Bessie Long and Miss Eunice

The be.st of it was. the contest was
made with the most perfect good
