Marriage Of The Editor Of This Paper.


The masculine heart is doomed, sooner or later, to be pierce by the sharp pointed shafts from Cupids bow. It is so in every land and clime; in every conditions and estate, in fact “ they’ll do it.” On Wednesday last Hyman’s torch blazed brilliantly on affection’s altar, at the residence of the bride’s father. It was the marriage of Mr. W. A. Davis and Miss M. I. Jones. The mystic rites were performed by Elder J. A. Stradley in solemn and impressive manner, in the presence of a few invited friends. The bridal couple accompanied by a number of ladies and gentlemen, left immediately after the ceremony was performed, for the residence of the groom’s father, on Flat River. The reception there were all one could desire. Pleasant and agreeable company of relatives and friends. Elegant supper. The wedding  cake was a present from Mrs. Dr. E. H. Holt. It was a “two story cake,” nicely trimmed with candy. On top were two hearts.

Very suggestive. Fun and mirth held high carnival.

The night was filled with music, and the cares that infested the day, Like the atlas, folded their tents and silently stole away.

Tuesday that all had a pleasant and happy time is but faint conception of what was enjoyed. Indeed everything went as lovely as the married belle, now to the newly wedded couple. May Heaven shed its lustrous radiance athwart the disc of their young lives, and may Gabriel when he comes, with trumpet in hand, to summon the righteous legions to the bright and beautiful beyond, find their dust lovingly intermingled in the same perennial. Mignonette, is the hearty wish of the Associate Editor.
