The Entertainment The entertainment given here on Friday night of last week in the hall over the Elkin Canning Factory by the Morpliet and Stevenson Company which is < ravelling under the dir< ct ion of the Dixie Lyceum Bureau, was of a high order; perhaps the best ever witnessed by our people at home. Mr. Morpliet has a wide range of talents—magician, mu sician, ventriloquist and clown— and in each a genius. While Mr, Stevenson in his special line, that of music has few equals. He showed himself an expert per former on a wide range of instru ments. We are sure he could have taken a number of tinjpans, frying pans, or wooden buckets and knocked good niuBic out of them. He could have taken a stick and knocked out nice mu sic on a rail fence. As a violinist Miss Jackson is an artist. Her impersonating was also good. Mrs, Morphet’s part on the program was princi pally that of assistant to her husband. All who attended went away feeling that they had got their money’s worth.

The result of the election is a complete repudiation of Cow-1 ater party in honor of Miss Angie berd. j Smith. The following attended The wedding last Tuesday even ing at the elegant home of Mr, and Mrs. A, M. Smith on Gwyn Avenue was an elaborate affair, eclipsing,perhaps, anything ot the kind ever witnessed in Elkin—and Elkin has witnessed quite a num ber of fashionable weddings within the past five or six years. The contracting parties were Mr. ,Iohn B. Horton, and Miss Angie Smith, sister of Mr. A. M. Smith, both of whom are well known and deservedly popular. The decorations were in excel lent taste, the color scheme throughout being pink and white; almost a countless number o( pink and white bells w'ere hanging everywhere throughout the large and well appointed Smith man sion. The beautiful ring service was used, and Dr. C. W. Robinson of the Presbyteria:i church, North Wilkesboro united the destinies of these two young people for life. The bridal party was up stairs while the guests were below. J ust before the hour for the ceremony Mrs. M. A. Biggs came down the broad stairway and going to the piano rendered an appropriate se lection. Mrs. VirginiaHunt next came down leaning on the arm of Mr. Alex Chatham, Jr., and sang Ijeautii'ully “I love you truly” and “Dear Heart.” While the strains of Mendel!- shons wedding march, played by Mrs. Biggs filled the large rooms, and hallways, little Miss Margar et Price and her little brother, William, came down the stairway and took positions just inside the parlor. They were followed by Miss DeWitt Chatham and Master William Roth who look positions near the parlor door. Following these came Miss Louise Roth and Master Thurmond Chatham. ill The little girls wore aocordian plaited pink silk—the little boys wore white iinen suits. The little girls and little boysstanding aside and holding a long ribbon on eith er side formed an aisle through which the party marched as they entered. These came in the fol lowing order: First the groom attended by his brother, Mr. Wal ter Horton, as best man, followed by the bride, who was attended by her sister,Mrs. Frank Jennings, as dame of honor. The bride and dame of honor were elegantly gowned ; the former in white satin the later in pink silk. The bride carried lillies of-the-^'ulley—the dame of honor carnations. The impressive marriage cere- mony over, a brief period of con gratulations followed after which all repaired to the dining room where a solid course was served From the dining room they were conducted into the sitting room where coffee and chocolate were ;Served. They then repaired to the library where they were again ^erved, this time to punch. : As the guests left for their homes or hotels each was given as a souvenir a box having on it in gold the initials of the bride and groom in monogram—each box contained a small piece of the wedding cake. Mr and Mrs. Horton left on the early train Wednesday morning for Washington City where several days will be spent. From Wash ington they expect to come to Vir ginia, the former home of the bride where some time will be spent with her relatives and friends.
