ATHENS NEWS.
MARRIED After Waiting Three Years - Dame Rumor Reports a Prospective Wedding - New and Elegant Depot.
     ATHENS, Feb. 10. - [Special] - Sam H. SLACK and Miss Emma WILKINS were married at Mt. Cumberland, three miles from Athens, Sunday morning.  The license for this wedding was issued three years ago, but the young people were prevented from marrying on account of their age - their parents thinking they were too young.  To all appearances they, seemingly, had forgotten each other, but on Sunday morning they met at Sunday school, and were united in the holy bonds of wedlock by "Squire Tom FOSTER.  They belong to the best families of the county, and have many friends who wish them a long life of happiness.
     Dame rumor has the wedding of one of our most popular young society ladies to a young man from a neighboring state, who is attending, who is attending the University here.  To confirm this report the young lady yesterday received from D. B. LOVEMAN, Chattanooga, two costly dresses, etc.
     The marriage of one of our well known young merchants, to an Athens belle, is also reported to materials in the near future.
     Our streets are thronged to-day with rural brethren, trading and selling produce, and, of course, our merchants are wearing broad smiles.
     The East Tennessee road is at last recognizing the importance of Athens, as their new schedule and the erection of a new and elegant depot will testify.  All the trains now stop here.
     Athens continues to grow.  Every day we hear of some new enterprise on foot.
     The new machinery for the Athens woolen mills has been placed in position, greatly increasing their capacity for the manufacture of their goods.
     We have a real live Indian doctor located here since Friday.
     Services were held at all the churches Sunday.  An immense congregation was present at the revival services in the M. E. Church, south, Sunday evening.  Rev. R. J. COOKE preached one of his most powerful sermons, and the altar was crowded with penitents.
     Mr. WEBBER and wife, of Cleveland, Ohio, were here with a view of investing in real estate.  He is already interested in Athens dirt.
     The Y. M. C. A. meeting in the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon was largely attended and the exercises were very interesting.
     J. C. SEHORN spent Monday in Chattanooga.
     Jim FISHER is up again after a severe attack of the "grippe."
     Deputy Collector HORNSBY is making a good officer.
     W. W. GANT was down from Knoxville to spend Sunday with home folks.
     Jo J. Ivins has returned from Johnson City. 
     As yet no democrat has had the cheek to announce himself in the county for office; but are the election rolls 'round the woods will be full of 'em.
     The JOURNAL is by far the best daily paper that comes to Athens.  We believe its enterprise in furnishing all the news to its readers will be appreciated by the Athens people, as well as others, in a substantial manner.

ATHENS COUPLE MARRIED IN MIDDLE OF STREET.
     Athens, Ga., Apr. 27 - (Special) - Yesterday shortly after noon, Rev. H. C. COMPTON, who has had more peculiar experiences than most men of twice his age, married a young couple of this city as they sat in the buggy in front of the drug store on Clayton street, with dozens passing and none suspecting that a marriage ceremony was being said.
     The groom-to-be explained that he was afraid that the horse might run away.  The preacher offered to perform the ceremony from the curb.  The bride assented.  The preacher placed one foot on the wheel hub and carelessly said over the ceremony as if he were asking the couple what sort of ice cream they wished from the fount.  They thing was over in a trice and nobody was the wiser till a few minutes after the minister told it to several who had actually seen the marriage and were not conscious of the character of the spectacle.
     The couple was Mr. A. S. SEAR___? and Miss Carrie HUGGINS.

ATHENS COUPLE MARRIED FIFTY YEARS AGO TODAY
Dr. and Mrs. John Atkinson HONNICUTT Celebrate Golden Anniversary; Relatives and Friends Gather
    
ATHENS, Feb. 21 - Sunday, February 22, marks the fiftieth wedding anniversary of two beloved Athenians, Dr. and Mrs. John Atkinson HUNNICUTT, and as the date falls on the Sabbath the anniversary will be quietly celebrated in the home, 325 Milledge avenue where they have lived for forty-nine years.  Invitations have been mailed to friends out of town and verbal invitations have been given to Athens friends, the number invited necessarily limited owning to the day and in part to the special sacredness of the anniversary itself.  Only the older citizens of the city will be present, special associates of the doctor and the schoolmates and intimates of his wife.  It will not be a social function, but an opportunity for those most closely identified with the large family to come in and express greetings and offer congratulations and best wishes.
     Have Eight Children.
     The HUNNICUTT home, an attractive landmark of the city, is divided from the famous Lucy COBB Institute only by a narrow street, and sets well back from teh avenue in a grove of beautiful trees.  The rooms are large and beautifully furnished with exquisite taste.  Always it has been a place where hospitality abounded, the hospitality of Christian hearts, alike to rich and poor, friend and stranger.  Here have been reared eight children, all honored and charming people; six daughters and two sons; Mrs. C. P. Wilcox of Cedartown; Mrs. E. J. Bailey of Newman; Mrs. Stiles HOPKINS of Atlanta; Mrs. Charles ECKFORD of Greenville, Misses Sarah and Mary  HUNNICUTT of Athens; Mr. Deupree HUNNICUTT and Dr. John Atkinson HUNNICUTT, both of Athens.
     Mrs. HUNNICUTT was Miss Mary Louise DEUPREE of near Lexington and after attending the Morarian School of Salem, N. C., was for a time a pupil of Miss Callie SOSNOWSKI, who was president of the "Home School," a select girls' school of Athens many years ago.  Doctor HUNNICUTT is of Virginia ancestry, though born in Coweta county, Georgia, and is a gentleman of the "old school.".
     So, on Sunday next this beloved couple will be much in the minds of hundreds of friends in Athens and throughout the State.  The First Methodist church of the city where they have worshipped for years, will be specially decorated with the golden flowers of the springtime and the entire family with the grandchildren will occupy a special section.
