(Sunset Siftings)

On Wednesday, the 22d inst., at the residence of the bride's father, Mr. J. M. Hobgood, in Vance county, Mr. J. T. Morris, one of the popular young men of Sunset, was united in marriage to the beautiful and charming Miss Maud Hobgood, formerly of this county, Rev. J. A. Stradley officiating.  Mr. Charlie Hobgood was the groom's best man and Miss Florence Morris was the bride's maid of honor.  The other attendants were Mr. Frank Hobgood and Miss Cliffie Knott; Mr. Will Richardson and Miss Mamie Evans; Mr. Rufus Puckett and Miss Dora Adcock; Mr. Roy Badgett and Miss Addie Knott; Mr. Archie Wilkerson and Miss Mary Royster; Mr. Sam Hunt and Miss Leora Hobgood; Mr. B.M. Currin and Miss Addie Brooks; Mr. Ben Adcock and Miss Nannie Hobgood.
The parlors were beautifully and artistically decorated with roses and evergreens.  The couple stood under a beautiful bell of green.  The bride was elegantly attired in a handsome lilac costume and carried a beautiful bouquet of geraniums.  The bridesmaids were in evening costume.  After the ceremony the bridal party repaired to the dining room where a bountiful repast was spread to which all did ample justice.  After supper the young people filled the parlors and to the entrancing strains of music "chased each other with flying feet" until the wee small hours.  "Soft eyes looked love to eyes that spake again and all went merry as a marriage bell." 

We tender to the bride and groom our congratulations and wish them a happy and prosperous future and many happy returns of the anniversary of their wedding day.
