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.

Brown on the evening ot Wednesday. Sept. 28. A large crowd was in attendance and everybody had a good time. The incident 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 Johnson. Miss Johnson being the win ner. But it was an exciting race. The be.st of it was. the contest was made with the most perfect good humor and Miss Long made lots of friends and the friends of the winner are waiting for an opportunity to compliment Miss Bessie. Miss Bessie Long was awarded the carving set and another cake. The C. E. Society had undertaken to pay for the very line acetyline lighting plant which has been installed in the church, and the profits of the social were to be applied to the payment of that dept. The one cake brought them a little dollars, besides more than thirty-on- e what Mr. Rzy had paid for it. The additional profits from the refreshment stand enabled the society to e cancel the debt for the plant. Tells All Abont the People Ycu Keiw Altrg R. F. D. 19 and Among the "Saints".
