Excerpts from the Interior Journal The Interior Journal Pulaski County Department Will C Curd March 2, 1874
Married. On Thursday evening, 24th ultimo, at the residence of the bride's father, 10 miles South of Somerset, by the Rev. McElroy of Perryville, Ky., Mr. Geo. W. Wait to Miss Lin Saunders. Also at the residence of the bride's father, in Somerset, on Wednesday morning the 25th ultimo, by the same minister, Mr. Charles Adams of Louisville to Miss Maggie Beatie. Attendants C.J. Huffaker and Miss Lizzie Crawford. George and Charlie having entered upon the realities of that happy earthly state prepared by God for man, which properly cherished and respected, must make the husband wiser and better, the wife more loving and confiding, received the congratulations of their many friends. George and Charles appeared as happy after the solemn momentous question was answered, which make the twain one flesh, as in their joyous school days, when love's lasting impressions were made upon their hearts by the sweet smiles of Lin and Maggie, which have continued to ripen in devotion until at last to culminate in bonds of inseparable union. Truly should these young gentlemen be proud of their lovely brides; and may no clouds of sorrow rise or misfortune come to prevent a realization of each fond desire entertained in their hearts leading to future happiness and prosperity. And while George and Lin are enjoying their home in Somerset and the pleasures of reception parties and "sweet serenades," may Charles and Maggie enjoy all the pleasures and blessings of a city life that can be bestowed upon two loving hearts. Serious Accident. A negro boy, named Gover, while driving an ox team through our town the other day, in attempting to mount one of the animals was thrown under the wheels of a loaded wagon, receiving serious injuries on the head and portions of the body. Medical aid immediately went to his relief, and it is now thought that the unfortunate boy will recover. S.G. Cundiff, of Stanford, formerly a citizen of our town, paid us a visit this morning. Mr. C. is representing R. Mattingly & Son, proprietors of the Stanford Woolen Mills, and has some beautiful goods and samples with him. We recommend these mills to our merchants and advise them to patronize home manufacturers. Items from Plato. The citizens of our locality have been and are yet dreadfully afflicted with the mumps. The Cincinnati Southern Railroad is the topic of general conversation. Notwithstanding the recent heavy rains, our farmers are at work with unusual energy and much plowing has already been done. Jno. G. Smith, who eloped a short time ago with the daughter of R.L. Swinney, being prompted alone by kind feelings toward his affianced, procured the father's best riding horse upon which she accompanied John to Tennessee. William Catron recently purchased from Elisha Bullock, of Rockcastle, ten yearling mules at $60 per head, and William McQuery purchased of John F. McQuery nine head at the same price. Messrs. Barnett and Frank McQuery, two of our most enterprising young men, will start for Lucas County, Iowa, in a few days. May success attend them. Buck Creek, on Sunday, the 22nd ultimo, was fuller than ever before known to the oldest citizens, which occasioned great danger to the fencing near the angry stream. Cincinnati Southern. A number of hands are now engaged at work on that section of the road adjoining our town. Other contractors will commence work on their sections soon. Several steamers have recently landed at Point Isabel in our county, laden with provisions and other supplies for the different railroad contractors. The telegraph, we learn, will, in a very few months, be constructed along the entire line under contract. Many strangers are visiting our county and selecting locations for business at and near Point Isabel and at other points in the vicinity of the railroad line.
