	A large host of interested friends were surprised Saturday evening to learn of the marriage of
Mr. "Rip" Arney Tackett of Globe, and Miss Alma Ernst of Grahn, which took place at the
Methodist parsonage at Olive Hill Saturday afternoon, July 27, 1935, {Note:  you can find a
picture of the Methodist Church of Olive Hill on the Carter County photo page.} Rev. Henry
Murrell officiating.

	The wedding was not unexpected, for the romance had been one of keen interest for some time, but
they slipped away so quietly it was a surprise at the time.

	Mrs. Tackett is the second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. R. Ernst, a graduate of Olive Hill High
School and a graduate from the Commercial Department of Aiken Hall and a former student at
Morehead State Teachers College.  She is one of the most popular young ladies of Grahn and a
great favorite among the small children and has had charge of the primary department in the
Baptist church for the past year.

	Mr. Tackett is the son of Mr. Greely Tackett, of Globe.  He is a graduate of Olive Hill High
School, class of '32, and a student at Morehead State Teachers College.  It was during the
Senior year of High School when their romance began.  Mr. Tackett has recently gone into
business for himself at Globe.

	Their many friends wish for them many years of happiness together.  They expect to make their
home in Olive Hill.

	The Horton Family Reunion and Basket Dinner will be held at Carter Caves Sunday, August 11,

	The Selby Shoe Company's softball team of Ironton, Ohio, will appear here Sunday afternoon at
2:30 o'clock against the champion Qualls team.  Bruce Stidham, who beat the Selby crew in
Ashland for the Gulfprides and allowed no hits, will probably go on the mound again Sunday.
The visitors put up a fine battle in Ashland before, losing 5-1 in their first night fame and
have plainly said they would beat the Gulfprides in a daytime contest.  This melee is sure to be
a fast, interesting tilt, and is part of the program to make Olive Hill realize that softball is
a fine game and worthy of everyone's patronage and support.

	Mrs. Florence Duval-Scott born in Vanceburg, Lewis County, Kentucky, on December 19, 1877,
passed to her reward at her home at McGlone, four miles east of this city July 29, 1935, at the
age of 57 years, 7 months and 20 days, after a lingering illness of years' duration, but which
was not considered so serious until a few months ago, and which gradually grew worse from day to
day until the end came, although all that medical skill and the hands of friends and loved ones
could do was done.

	In 1900 she was united in marriage to Walter Scott and moved to McGlone, where she lived until
her death.  She was always a good woman, and in early life she united with the Church of God and
lived a devoted life for the cause of her Maker and with those whom she mixed and mingled her
life was a light beaming forth for her associates to follow on with her.  Mrs. Scott let the
testimony that she was prepared to go, and welcomed the hour when Jesus would take her home.
Funeral services were conducted at the home Tuesday afternoon by Rev. Bob Kell, after which the
remains were brought to the family burying ground east of this city {Olive Hill} and laid to
rest.  She leaves her husband, Walter Scott, two brothers, Chas. F. And August Duval, and Mrs.
