.since the marriage license law
became operative the Judge has
not had.many idle days, And
as the year nears its end and the
Christmas holidays approach his
services are more and more in
demand.
During the first three days of
this week he has sent three
happy couple out on .the road
of connubial bliss and made
them rejoice with Eden glad
ness.
On last Sunday, 19th inst., he
joined in happy wviock Miss
Lula A. M. Powers and Mr. J.
F. Mauldin.

gether in indissoluble bonds the

Findley and Mr. K. Kelley.
On the same day Cupid ac

wishes.
