January 2 1890
Mr. H. A. May of Sartinsville, was in town last Monday.
This is the strangest weather we ever saw for this time of the year.
Dr. Mitchell of Brookhaven was a visitor to our town last Saturday.
We learn there were three socials in town last week. Certainly Monticello boometh!
It is said the town was pretty lively Christmas, but it now seems lie some banquet hall deserted.
Misses Mary Lomax and India Jones spent Christmas in Hazlehurst, and reported having had a delightful time.

We haven't got a complete list of locals

and Waxahachie, Tex. Our space does not permit a description of our trip this week; hence it will not appear until next week. Look out for something good.
Christmas and new Year has passed, and the Holidays, as it were are over.
Once more the laborer has to return to his work; the short lived pleasure of a few days I indelibly impressed upon his memory, but
as his thoughts recur to them there is a feeling akin to despondency that reaches out and seems to take firm hold upon everything that before seemed beautiful and lovely and pleasant to dweel upon, as he
realizes that another long year will have to be passed before those pleasant dreams can be re-enacted in a form that bespeaks realization.

Crawford, on Dec 18th, 1889 by Rev. J. W. Wellborn, Mr. T. Monroe Beal and Miss Lucie Crawford, both of Lawrence county. Attendants: Mr. A. E. Weathersby and Miss Fannie Hennington.
It was the good fortune
of the publisher to have a "bid" to this happy union, but owing to an unusal press of business we were deterred from putting in an appearance. Both of the contracting parties are quite well
known in this county, and everybody wishes for them a long happy and prosperous life. Monroe, here's our, and we hope it won't be very long before we will also be called a Benedict.
There was given

January 23, 1890
As will be seen elsewhere in this paper, there was a mighty railroad meeting at this place last Monday, which was participated in by the citizens of this and Lincoln counties.
The object of the meeting
was to get a full and free expression from the people of this county as to whether or not they were in favor of voting a certain sum of money as an inducement for road to be run to this place.
addresses were made by Hon. R. H. Thompson, Captains Lambert and Hoskins, and in them they plainly set for the proposition which must be acted upon by our people, and that proposition is as follows:
Lawrence County will be asked to vote $50,000 in bonds, or any sum which may be determined upon here after the 2000 been the maximum which ought to run 20 years, drawling interest at the rate of 6%, and in
conjunction with a like amount from Lincoln County and hundred thousand from some capitalist or capitalists, a short time railroad is to be built from the old Hamilton and Hoskins Road, 7 mi. east of
Brookhaven, to this place. Immediately upon the completion of the short line, which will be the first-ever taken, operations will at once began on the main line, which is to be run from Natchez to
Meriden and which will connect itself with this short line proposed to be built first by are united efforts.
That the road from Natchez to Meridian will be built, and that it will split our county wide
open by coming by way of this place, there is no question of a doubt. As other indications that the road for a run from Natchez to read in, we'll ask why does Captain Lambert, of Natchez take so much
interest in the project; why will the Board of Trade of meridian meet with our citizens in Brookhaven on the seventh the next month, and why are we to urge citizens of Covington, Simpson, Smith and Jasper to
attend the same meeting if the main line is not to be built? There seems to be some doubt in the minds of some of our people as to whether or not the main line will be built, and we made the above remarks
for the purpose of condensing those doubting Thomases. The road will be built, anyway, if large cat doesn't contribute a dime, but where will it go? It will go through the northeast corner of our
county, and Miss Monticello about 12 mi.! It will scarcely touched the county! It therefore behooves us to secure the short line from Brookhaven to Monticello, which is now within our grasp, and which will
eventually put us on the main line. Do we want the road?
It might be well to state now as for all, that the 50,000 we will be asked to deal will be as a bonus, and that Lawrence County will not own
any interest in the road unless she desires to take that much stock. We are asked to give that much simply for the incalculable good the road will do the county. Furthermore, not a dime the money
will be ask for until the road is completed and in running order. Those who are afraid the tax will hurt them will be convinced they're wrong by taking time to figure out. The tax wouldn't
absolutely be felt; then we would have their road, together with all the tenfold wealth and taxable property it's coming would bring.
NOTICE TO TEACHERS
Teachers and others having business with me will
find me in my office on the first and fourth Saturdays in peach moth, as the law directs. That must not expect me to be ready at all times to wait on them, as the salary is too small to give my whole
time to the office. I have other interests that require my attention. However, I will try to be a Monticello every Saturday and of all days of public gatherings, and will, of course, attend to
them at any time I may be found in town, but to be certain of having their wants attended to they will come as above noted. B. D. Bishop County Superintendent of Education

February 6 1890
In observance of a beautiful custom of celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of marriage the golden wedding the friends of Captain William Carroll and Ms. Francis Maxwell met at their
residence and sat down to a bountiful repast in honor of the occasion.
Mr. Maxwell or uncle Carroll as he is familiarly called is well-known and highly esteemed by all who know him and his amiable wife,
who yet bears the personal evidence of that high order of beauty which won the youthful heart of her husband.
50 years of unalloyed connubial felicity, fifty years of happy wedded life had made this a
fitting remembrance of the momentous occasion that made their two hearts beat as one. They were married January the 11th 1840.
Their first daughter Miss Abigail Thornhill, was a pattern of virtue amiable and Christian faith. She died three years ago.
Dickerson, their first son, was killed in trenches at Jackson Mississippi
when that place was besieged by Grant. He was a son for the of his parentage, and died in the triumph of Christian faith.
Jesse their second son also gave his young life for his country's defense and died in a far away hospital.
"Senth David" died at the age of 14, and A. W. (Winston) their hope and pride died last year.
Of this interesting family, three remains to support and cheer the decling days of their parents - William C., Thomas C., and Mrs. Cynthia Bush.
Uncle Carroll and Thompson Wallace were, in a Providence of
God, the founders of Bethel church with Uncle Tom Maxwell, who lives just across the creek to join later.
We extend our congratulations having known and loved them many years we remember their aid,
council, and encouragement to us, and hear testimony of their generous hospitality, and to that fervent charity, which is the bond of peace and the perfection of every virtue. May the blessed Lord
spare them to see the children's children and firmly established. January 17th 1890.

We are indeed proud to learn that the patrons
of Monticello school recognizing Miss Mary Lomax's superior qualifications as a teacher, have engaged her to teach the private term of four months, which commences on the first Monday of April.
