it would greatly benefit both town to
make a good road between them.

Yesterday afternoon at the twi
light hour, when mankind thinks of
good things home and beauty, Will
C. Branham and Miss Willie Hume
were united in marriage where the
freshness of green leaves and the
pure lips of white roses spoke of
youth and gladness. The wedding
was at the home of the bride's father,
William Hume, of the firm of Orr,
Scoggins & Hume, and was beautiful
in that it was witnessed only by those
whose hearts really looked up ask
ance for peace and prosperity for the
barks that shall sail together all .the
days of their lives.
A few minutes after 6 o'clock Fred
Hume, the little brother of the bride,
crossed the parlor diagonally from
the hall door to the bow window,
trailing behind him a silken ribbon.
Then came Mr. and Mrs. Hume and
Mrs. Branham, followed immediate
ly by the husband and wife of today.
Rev, G. A. Trenholm awaited them
at the further end of the streamer of
white, and when they had bowed
their heads before God and in the
presence ot man he pronounced the
ceremony of union, beautifully and
becomingly to the sacredness of the
hour. Then there was a pause of a
moment, and then a sturdy wave of
congratulation that shall bear them
many days' journey on their com
At 7 o'clock the bridal reception
began, and the number of those who
came to honor the night reached far
into the hundreds. Until 11 o'clock
the sound of men's voices in happy
praise and the; merry tinkle of wo
men's laughter murmured as sweet
music to those who knew it was born
of love and respect for them.
