Rbtxolds, Feb. 20. A somewhat
novel wedding occurred here at 2:16
p. m.. Feb. 16, when Raymond
Bridgeford and Miss Julia Bayle, of
Mercer county, were made man and
wife. It seems the young couple had
procured a marriage license in Aledo
and for some reason came here to be
married, which was out of the coun
ty. So arrangements were made
with the minister to meet them
across the connty line. Accordingly,
Rev. Archer, accompanied by Thad
J. Ash and Prof. Furguson for wit
nesses, marched across the line and
took position on top of a 5-board
fence and awaited the arrival of the
pair, who soon arrived, and the deed
was soon done and duly witnessed.
and the young people drove away as
nappy as a clam.
