NICHOLS CARTER At the -M. E. church In

fresh and balmy, the prairies had clad them
selves in a brighter green. a if in honor cf the
marriage iporti. the trees shook out their wav
ing wealth of drapery, and even the funligtit
seemed to dance as it fell on a scene so blest.
The people, too, had caught the infection, and
when the hour arrived that had been set a5ir.
for the solemnization of a ceremony oM as the
race, there had gathered to witness that cere
mony the gayest congregation of "fair women
and brave men" Hint we have ever seen in the
bounds of Hurl in gt on. Not a sorrowful coun
tenance, not the shade of a pain rested on any
face to take one iota from the full measure of
enjoyment. At half past nine o'clock the church
was full. The greetings of the morning had
just subsided, and thoughts had turned again to
the event, w hen the door of the vestibule was
opened, and the bridal party came slowly down
the aisle, llr. Jos, Draper and Miss Jennie Vau
Blyck walked lirt. parting at the alter, and just
behind them. leaniuR 0.1 the arm of her affianced
came, for the last lime she ever could enter the
church. Miss Emma Carter. Vi e have no more
words for the dress of the bridal party than
that they were well-dressed, neatly, tastefully,
with nvne of the meaningless tinsel which of
ten makes a marriage day the bitterest day in
a woman's life. At the altar Rev. Mr. Rice,
who had been summoned from his home, iu
Emporia, rose up. and with a silent gesture of
his band railed the audience to witness this
act, the mots solemn of earth's ceremonials.
The audience rose and listened silently to the
w ords of the beautiful rite, w hich told of the
holiness of marriage, listened as he asked them
to coiifes if cither of them knew cause why
theii' lives should not be united, listened as that
cha'ienge went out to all the world, to speak
now, or forever hold its peace, and listened
then when be pronounced them man and wife,
and laid the life of that woman, as lie laid her
hand, into the keeping of her husband. Then
he j"-ayrrt rvlci't h ly. fervently, that God would
bless the marriage, and that the blessing might
for ayecontinue. There was a moment's flut
tering pause, as the audience returned to their
seats, and as the bride and groom received frotn
pastor and friends their warm congratulations,
then the party turned, and pacing down the
aisle, the newly wedded first, the maid and
groomsman second, went out into a day that is
typical, please God, of their live. On the ser
vice table of the church had been pilud a few of
the many prenls which had come to them
from lrieuds w ho marked their regarJ iu more
than words. A China dinner set and sauce
tureen, gold-rimmed and beautiful, had been
presented. A dozen silver tea-spoons, a sugar
sjioon and butter knife, a napkin ring, a butter
dish and a full set of elegai.t stiver prat-ed u,,.
board. Then, at the house the less showy but
fully as valuable presents of dry-goods, and the
various other things w hich youus folks need,
had been presented. AVe cannot give the names
of a,!l the donors. They were too many. But
they spoke the regard of the city. There was
one present, though, w hich we shall part icilar
ly mention, and that was a check for a hundred
dollars, drawn by the bride's father, in her fa
.or. It occupied the smallest space of anything
there, but as the donor shrewdly remarked.
"Maybe they'll neod it." Of the bride we will
say, that although beautiful, intelligent, refined,
she is a creature "not too rare and good for hu
man nature's daily food." She will be in ail
things that man's companion, loving him, trust
ing him, earing for him. "Iu sickness and in
health, "' she will give him her daily blessing.
To the bridegroom, we would say, "of ail the
precious burdens you have ever borne, this is
most precious." Don't try to make her life a
gala day or the glare may blind her. Rut out
from the riches of your mauhood's might, bring
something of sunshine for each dr.j'. Your life
will he purified, strengthened, elevated. Re
her true husband evermore. Rarlinjjtoii (Kan.,'

A stormy scene followed, which lasted
for several hours, the republcans tilli

and the democrats resisting.

speech with his customary force and
eloquence denouncing the army Pill,
and attacking the democrats for their
action in forcing political legislation
on the appropriation bills. lie declared
that the action of the democrats this
session, in offering the sixth section to
the army bill in such a mild way, was
to get Hayes to sign so that he would
commit himself to the signature of a
similar one but more explicit next
year, so as to protect the polls at the
next Presidential election. Conkling
spoke twenty-live minutes, and at 12:

Conkling arose in his seat very de

but Conkling declined to have any
communication with the member from
Mississippi, and he said that if he were
not in the presence of the Senate he
would denounce him as a blackguard
and a coward and a liar. Conkling re

said that lie meant exactly what he
had said, and it was not the language
which he would address to a gentle

a gentleman would bear. Lamar then
left his aseat and moved uneasily to the
other side of the chamber, followed by
several of his colleagues.
