lEAUTIFUL CHINA WEDDING
lr. and Mrs L. M. McKenzie Cele
brate the Twentieth Anniversary
of their Marriage.
Germanton, April 27. Well,
. (t was the smartest, the fullest
ef real charm and social pleasure
♦f anything that Germanton has!
»een and enjoyed for many a|
jlay. I mean the occasion of,
the celebration of the twen
tieth anniversary of their mar
riage, by Mr. and Mrs. L. M.
McKenzie. This home, one of
the nicest and I'm sure the most
complete in all its appointments
In this section was a thing of
beauty on the eve of the twenty
lecond and the memory of it all
must be a joy forever. It must
always be thought of as one of
those 6right spots, rare social
flower-gardens that occasionally!
adorn and enrich the pathway of!
The rooms were resplendent,
and beautiful in the soft, mellow j
light and floral decoration;!
where palms and ferns so fitting-!
ly reminded one of the natural j
loveliness of our Southland.
At 7:30 the guests began to
arrive and soon the whole town I
almost, and* many from the
country and neighboring towns :
were gathered there "where
bright lamps shone o'er fair wom
en and brave men."
About 9:30 % the guests were
ushered into the spacious
dining room where the table
groaned under its burden—not
of delicious refreshments but
of dozens of pieces of elaborately
wrought china—all most beautiful
in hand painted decoration. This
came from the guests and go-d
friends everywhere. Splendid
refreshments were served as if
by magic. Unseen at first the
several courses showered down
as if borne by the wings of
fairies. The Misses Rierson of
Walnut Cove were the active
geniuses to preside at this feature
of the occasion. While at the
table, where the body was being
so abundantly provided for, that
other part of dual man —the soul
—was being filled and thrilled to
the height of ecstatic emotion
by the sweet strains of music
and song. Dr. L. H. Hill, Mrs.
J. D. Powers, Misses Annie Hill,
Etta Crews, Mabel McKenzie,
Stella Rierson, Mary Matthews
and Messrs. J. M. and P. H. Hill
were the artists of a musical
program such as it is seldom
one's good fortune to enjoy. \
Conspicuous among the genteel
throng that circled the dining
room the genial pair, the host
and hostess—looking so full of
youth and free from care, that
tin and not china should have
adorned the table in the center.
The host was in his usual garb
of wit, humor and hospitality,
while the charming hostess was
attired in a splendid gown of
black silk and yoil with pink
i corals, and as has been said the
twenty years of conjugal felicity
so eluded the rasping finger
of time that the strangor there
; that night, might have taken her,
for the young bride just entering'
matrimonial relation. I
j. After the dispensation of the)
dining room the gentlemen
paired to the smoking room, there
toerfjoy the fragrant Havanas
and to listen with eager ear to
the reminiscent fund of anecdote
and story which the presence of
the ho3t and hia inimitable friend
S. C. Hill warranted to be
This feature over, again the
parlors were filled and while
J music end song and mirth
resounded, the hours slipped by
all unheeded, and too soon did
all realize the hour of departure
had come. Andaa the guests
went their way the stars seemed
to look down with eye* of flashing

Two of Walnut Cove's Popular
Young People Wed in Winston.
The following is taken from
last Thursday's Winston Journal:
A marriage that will be of in
terest to the many friends of the
bride and groom, especially in
Stokes county, was celebrated
! very quietly in this city late yes
jterday afternoon, when Carrie
|G. Fulton became the wife of
Mr. Harry H. Davis, Rev. L. W.
Collins, pastor of Grace Method
ist church of this city, officiating.
The bride and groom are both
from Walnut Cove and came to
Winston-Salem late yesterday
afternoon, going directly to the
home of the bride's aunt, Mrs.
Mrs. F. T. Marshall, where the j
marriage occurred, in the pres-]
ence of a few of the relatives of
the bride in this city. Mr. and
| Mrs. Davis will leave this morn
! ing for Walnut Cove, where they >
j will reside.
The bride is the daughter of
I Mr. Jacob Fulton, a prominent
• merchant of Walnut Cove, and
i the groom is a prosoerous young
I business man of the same place,
'having been engaged with his
1 father-in-law in the mercantile 1
: business for a long time. So far |
as is known there was no objec- j
tions to marriage, but the young!
couple merely came to Winston-!
Salem to add a touch of romance J
to the affair and, incidentally, to i
surprise their friends at Walnut
The Reporter extends con
gratulations to the happy couple.
H. H. Young's Plan.
Smith, April 17. >
Messrs. Editors :
Will you allow me a reply to
Mr. H. H. Reid on the road
' Mr. Reid, your pian is good
if the country was uniform. I
had rather work one mile of
;some road than fifty yards of
,1 What are you going to do
I with those that are just here
and yonder? Just allot his to
him and mayby he will work it
. once, then he says every man
I has his part. Then he will say,
|"I will hunt me another job,
; I can get just as much as I am
'!getting." Then who is going
: ] to work that part of the road.
You would start off over good
I roads and come to a place you
could not pass, what would you
! think ?
' | My friend, I want to give you
' my plan to work the roads,
I ; that is to work the roads six
i i days in the year, or more in case
of water. When you see a
i road that has twelve days work
jin two years, you will see a
■ j very good road. Why not pay
; the overseer ? I think he should
[ have $6.00 per year, then if he
! fails to put in his six days, make
him pay $lO, then you will see
■ the roads begin to improve,
j The most of the overseers just
i! before court will go over the
j roads and drag in a few dry
(clods when the land is soft and
, [ mellow. That is the time to
i warn in your hands for two days
:! and work the roads.

SAVED CHILD FROM DEATH.
"After our child had suffered
severe bronchial trouble for a
year."wrote G. T. Richardson,
of Richardson's Mills, Ala., "we
feared it had consumption. It
had a bad cough all the time.
We tried many remedies without
, avail and doctor's medicine
seemed as useless. Finally we
' tried Dr. King's New Discovery,
and are pleased to say that one
bottle effected a complete cure,
and our child is again strong
and healthy:"For coughs, colds,
hoarseness, legrippe/ asthma,
croup and sore lungs, its the
most infallible remedy that's
made. Price 50c and Is.oo. Trial

STOKES BOY LANDS
CARL RAY ACHIEVES FAME
Tributes to the Young Son of Mr.
and Mrs. W. P. Ray By the State
Some people are bom to fame,
others achieve fame, while still
others have fame thrust upon !
I them. Carl Ray, the young son !
of Mr. and Mrs. W. P. Ray, who!
until a few weeks ago was work
ing on the farm near Danbury,
obscure and unsung, today is the;
sensation of the State baseball
enthusiasts and has been signed 1
up as pitcher for a league' team
at a salary of $1,200. In other'
words, Carl has suddenly achiev
ed fame. The Winston Sentinel
says he is the equal of Tony
Walters in the latter's palmiest
days. Reporting the game in
which Ray for Whitsett fanned
12 of Winston-Salem's players,
• the Sentinel says:
The decided feature of the
; game was the twirling of a Stokes
j county boy who fanned twelve of
■ Clancy's classiest men. His
j name is Ray and his father is a
: big tobacco grower on one of J.
; Spot Taylor's farms near Dan-
| Ray is red-headed, just 21
: years old. a southpaw and he has
j been dubbed the equal of Tony
Walters in his palmiest days.
! Some of the older fans declare
! that the Madison man never had
as much speed on his underhand
ball as the one delivered by
| Ray. Earl Holt and other old
ball players are predicting that
Ray will become a wonder, hav
ing no mishaps. He has had offers
to play with Greensboro and
Elizabeth City, but both proposi
! tions were turned down.
The players told the
writer that if Ray could be with
; Clancy a few weeks they believ
; ed he would soon become the star
; twirler in the Carolina league.
1 They admitted that he needed
training, that he was a little
careless about watching bases
j and other points.
; Had the Stokes boy been given
errorless support, the score would
. not have been 4 to 1.
Swindell pitched the opening
! innings and the "big boy" show
ed up well. Boyle, who succeed
ed him, did well for a man with
'! a sore arm. Every man in the
i line-up played the game, with
, one exception—they just would
hit under that "rise" ball deliv
ered by the boy from Stokes.
