Miss Ruth Halimer gave a linen shower last Wednesday night to Miss Oliver Rogers at which a number of the friends of the dainty-bride-to-be presented her with many beautiful and useful presents. Dainty refreshments were a feature of the evening.

Pretty Wedding at the Methodist Church, Tuesday Night

Amid pretty decorations of pink and green and witnessed by a large number of friends and relatives Rev. D. P. Slaughter of the Methodist church read the beautiful ceremony that united in holy wedlock Malcolm Bruce and Florence Olive, only daughter of Mrs. Florence Rogers at the Methodist church Monday night at half past seven.

Brides are proverbially beautiful but softened lights under shades of pink never shown on a fairer one than this dear girl who has grown up from early childhood in DeFuniak, and loved by every one who knew her. Her husband may well be proud of the prize he has won, and he comes as near being worthy of her as man ever gets to be.

Mrs. Henry Rogers was matron of honor and the bridesmaids were Misses Effie Stubbs, Ruth Thalimer and Eliza Berry, the best man being the brides brother, Rudolph and the other attendants Waverly Wadsworth, Malcolm Morrison, and G. D. Campbell.

The bride entered on the arm of her cousin, H. J. Rogers who gave her at the altar to the man of her choice.

Mr. and Mrs. Bruce left on the night train, for New York where they will spend the summer, quietly slipping away to Argyle to embark leaving the rice and old slippers at the depot in the hands of the badly sold crowd that gathered to see them off.

Bon voyage on your wedding trip, friends of ours, and all through life.

Arcadia people were made to feel very sad Monday when it became known that Mrs. Hope Cawthon had passed away at the home of her sister, Mrs. D. L. McSwain, about noon.

Mrs. Cawthon had been sick about a year with some nervous trouble, and only about six weeks ago did they realize that she had a typical case of pellagra. Dr. McSwain met Mr. and Mrs. Cawthon in Jacksonville, on their way from their home in De Funiak Springs some three weeks ago, and took Mrs. Cawthon to a specialist, who verified the diagnosis, of three weeks before as pellagra, and then brought her here where he could more successfully treat her, and give constant attention. But even his constant care and attention and the loving ministrations of devoted ones, could not save her for them.

About a week ago Dr. Rogers, of Jacksonville, came and they performed the operation of the transfusion of blood, the husband being the one who willingly furnished the required amount of blood, and for a few days she seemed stronger and better, but on Sunday night it became apparent that she could not live, and quietly passed out Monday near noon.

Mrs. Cawthon had visited her sister here frequently, and was very well known and many were times she had delighted an Arcadia audience with her sweet voice, which will be all the sweeter in the heavenly choir, but so much missed by loved ones on earth. — Arcadia News
