BENTON. Local Agent. Dates Back to The SO's. Commenting on The Courier's 50th anniversary, The Union City Commercial, one of the best weeklies in the United States, prints the following: "The Hickman Courier has instated a new typesetting machine the Junior Linotype. The Hickman paper is one of the oldest established in this section of the United States and one of the best weeklies published. It is no conducted by Speer & Sexton, who have made many improvements in the office. The latest is the linotype machine, the greatest invention of modern newspaperdom. The Courier dates way back to the fifties along with the State Gazette at Dyersburg and Editors George Warren and Tom Neal were two of the best known newspaper men, not only in the local field, but in their respective States. Col. Neal is retired at his home in Dyersburg, living as an honor to his profession and citizenship. Editor Warren has long ago passed over the Great Divide, revered and esteemed also as a man of parts. Contemporaneous newspaper publishers have felt the weight of their pens and their influence has left, its impress on the profession of to-day. Young men have taken their places, and among them none are making better structures than the editors of the Courier." Creson-Harky Marriage. The Courier failed to learn last week of the marriage of Julius M. Harky and Mrs. Dora Creson, which occurred June 13th. The wedding took place at the home of J. S. Maddox, below town, Esq. Wm. Shanklin officiating. The groom is well known to the people of this city, having been em ployed for a number of years as cotton buyer lor J. f. at t. i. Dodds. He was born in North Carolina in 1840, but has resided in Hickman since 1897. Mrs. Harky is a native of Tennes see, and is a neice of the late County Surveyor Holmes. She came to this city about 4 years ago and has resided here since that tune, ino one in West Hickman is held in higher esteem than Mr. and Mrs. Harky, and the Courier joins their friends in wishing them all the good things in life. They will reside in West Hickman. Were Boys Together, We clin the following from the Alamo (Tenn.)
