WEDDINGS

 

 

HUGGINS-HOLLIS (p. 1)
(BRUCE) Married: At the residence of J. J. Ward, last Wednesday night, Mrs. Nancy Hollis and Mr. J. H. Huggins. They left Friday for quite an extended trip north. We wish them a happy life.

COLLINSWORTH-STEPHENS  (p. 1)
(BRUCE) Last Thursday night Mr. W. H. Taunton came out from Freeport and married Mr. John Collinsworth and Miss Stephens. From the way Henry shook, it must have been his first experience. After the wedding the bridal party was entertained at a dance at John Hair’s.

NELSON-PATE  (p. 1)
(BRUCE) On Thursday morning Mr. Lee Nelson made a run for DeFuniak Springs with Miss Eliza Pate for the purpose of getting married. We wish them joy and all the good fortune that can come their way.

FOWLER-GAINEY  (p. 1)
(BRUCE) Sunday afternoon at 230 Mr. Allen Fowler and Miss Lee Gainey were quietly married at the residence of J. J. Ward in the presence of about sixty relatives and friends. They left after ice cream was served for Ebro where they will make their home. We wish them much joy.

 

SALTER-STORRS  (p. 2)
On Sunday evening at half past six, the Rev. S. J. Catts, pastor of the Baptist church in DeFuniak Springs, spoke the words that united for life Miss Bessie Margarett, daughter of Mr. R. W. Storrs and Edward James Salter of Pensacola. No invitations were issued and only the immediate relatives of the bride and a few friends who had heard of the event were present. The groom was attended by Mr. W. A. Garrett and the bride had as her attendents her little sisters, Gladyss and Iris, Miss Myrtice McCaskill, a cousin of the bride, playing the wedding march. Mr. and Mrs. Salters left on the evening train for Pensacola where they are at home to their friends at 1501 N. Davis Street.

The Breeze – August 25, 1910 – Page 1

As the result of an accident which occurred Tuesday morning about ten o’clock near Mossyhead, and which resulted in the instant death of a man by the name of Shelly and John Hulion who died about four hours after the accident and two more who received injuries, one of which was a man by the name of Harlow, who was firing at the time was badly burned and the other was John Hinote, who received a broken thigh and other injuries and who was sent to Pensacola that evening for treatment. How the accident occurred is at present not known, but the explosion was of such force that it was heard for miles around. Dr. Simmons and Dr. McKinnon left here for the scene as soon as the news reached this place and immediately attended the injured.

Up to the time of going to press no other particulars can be learned though an effort has been made by us to do so. We understand that the mill was the property of Chas. Mitchell, John Hinote and Will Fowler, all of whom like those receiving the injuries being well known in this section.

There was a large crew of men at work when the explosion occurred and it is a wonder that more were not seriously injured. The boiler is a total wreck, both ends of it being blown out.
