After the wedding supper was served and the couple left for thehome which the groom had prepared. Ben McKinnie and J. A. Sutton, of Ebro, attended the wedding.

(ADDITIONAL LOCALS) Among the other items that were crowded out last week was the announcement of the marriage the Sunday previous of Mr. Alfred Buchanan and Miss Mabel Buck at the home of the bride’s parents at Camp Walton, the Rev. Mr. Stock officiating. We dare any one to wish these young friends of ours more joy than we do.

DUNVAR-STRONG  (p. 4)
Mr. Dunvar and Miss Strong, of Caryville, came down on the mail train Tuesday night and returned on the accomodation as Mr. and Mrs. Dunbar. They did not know that their mission in town was known, and were very much surprised when they were liberally showered with rice as they boarded the train to return.
