The members of the liacholcrs Club
of this citv wore notified about ten
days ngo that another brother had for
saken the paths of slnglo blessedness
and wns about to tako unto himself a
wife. Accordingly preparations were
made to give him a royal sendoiT. Un
like the former occasions of this kind
the would-bo benedict demanded of
the president that his name bo not re
vealed for reasons best known to him
self and his demands wcro granted.
Consequently the portiou of our fair
city which revels iu mystery hns been
on tho tip toe of expectency for some
time. Each member of tho club was
surely the guilty party in the minds of
their most intimate frionds nnd no
amount of persuasion could bring tho
president to disclose the real party.
The Club assembled at tho ofllco
rooms of O. F. Cathor last evening and
proceeded to have one of the old times
oven though tho weather waH not up to
the standard of coolness. Hairy Lot
son ami Not man Moiilson weio elec
ted to niemborbhip and were duly ini
tiated. J. W. Tullej 8 wa-j elected
president for tno coming term; Harry
Letson wns elected vice president; Nor
man Morrison wns elected secretary
and treasurer. Past President Fort
then announced that the day before
tho guilty man had informed him that
owing to unforsoon circumstances tho
contracting parties had been compelled
to postpono the wedding for n time,
perhaps indetinately, and said that now
thero wns all the more reason why his
name should bo withheld. Tho nows
was as lightning from a clear iky to
tho boys, but they soou recovered nnd
tho ovont was carried through.
J. O. Wiles served tho banquet in
his usual manner and tho absence of a
real would-be did not keep tho viands
from disappearing with tho usual rap
idity. Vnrious conjectures nnd numerous
conclusions I nvo been made as to tho
real state of aliaiis.-xSotno think tho
members all know tho right party and
some think only tho past president
knows. Some think it was a joke and
some think it was u faico. Some think
it wns an elopement and arc watching
for fill ther details. Some confess thoy
do not know. Is it tho Lady or tho
