Little Son of Newt Martin Meets Horrible Death.

A four year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Newt Martin living near the planning mill was so terribly burned last Wednesday night that it died the next day.

From the best information obtainable it seems that Mrs. Martin left the little fellow by the fire while she went outside to attend to some household duties, and returned to find his clothes blazing evidently having caught from a splinter with which he was playing in the fire. While the fire was immediately extinguished the child was so severely burned that it died the next afternoon and it was buried Friday Rev. Chester Sprague of the Christian church conducting the funeral.

The bereaved parents have our deepest sympathy.

The Breeze – June 16, 1910 – Page 1

Among the prettiest of the early June weddings was that of Miss Sadie Rowland Donalson to Mr. Henry v. d. Hart Roelofs, which occurred at the home of the bride’s mother, Mrs. S. E. Donalson, on Tuesday evening June seventh at Point Donalson, Parker, Florida, on St. Andrews Bay, in the presence of a few relatives and friends.

The large front parlor was beautifully decorated in green white and pink, and oleanders were never more beautifully blended making one glad that oleanders bloom for June brides. The large lower hall and dining room carried the color scheme in a charming way.

The bride wore an exquisite gown of soft white satin fashioned in draped effect with trimmings of spangled net with veil, her only ornament being a string of pearls the gift of the groom’s mother and carried a bouquet of roses and ferns.

She was attended by Miss Grace Spencer of Wewahitchka, Fla., as maid of honor, and Miss Katherine Martin of Parker, and Miss Katherine Gillis of DeFuniak Springs, Fla., as bridesmaids, the color scheme being carried out in their costumes and arm bouquets.

Many beautiful presents were received attesting to the popularity of the young couple.

Delicious refreshments were served after the ceremony, and following the reception amid showers of rice and good wishes the wedded pair left for St. Andrews, and Wednesday morning took the train for Marianna. There Mr. Roelofs is in charge of the survey for the Jarratt Lumber Company’s Railroad.

Their many friends wish them “Bon voyage” thru life.
