decorations of green and white. The

the chancel railing the light from a
hundred candles gleamed. The choir'
loft was artistically entwined with
white and green.

the church. The ushers, Messrs.

sama time down the opposite aisle
came the maid-of-honor, Miss Lois
Goggans, who was followed by the
dainty little Misses Dunn as flower
girls. The bride entered on the arm
of her father, and was met at the
altar by the groom and his best man,
Mr. Exum, of Sumter. As the wed

I the chancel, a beautiful and impres
