When at eight o'clock Wednesday
evening, August C, 1013, at the resi
dence of the bride's parents, Mr.
Frank Oroneker Wright and Miss Lil
lian Gertrude Smith were so beauti
fully and impressively married by the
Rev. Dr. A. .1. Bowors, of Newherry,
there were united in the holy bonds of
matrimony two happy young persons
whose popularity and natural bright
ness have never been excelled in their
respective loaclities. The bride is tin
pretty and attractive daughter of
Dr. and Mrs. T. W. Smith, of this city,
whose charms and graces of mind and
manner have won for her a large
dree of admiring and devoted friends.
The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs.
Win. F. Wright, of Laurens county,
and the nephew of Messrs Hoheit 1).,
and Haskell Wright of Newberry..Be
ing also a nephew of the Herald and
News reporter, it is but natural that
a little pride should here be taken in
the marriage and it may be that par
tiality lends coloring to imagination's
wings. Tlie groom Is employed on
Southern ::T and 38, through express
train from Atlanta. On., to Washing
ton, D. C. He is very popular where
over he goes and makes friends every
where, by his sunny and genial dis
position and brightness of intellect,
which is shown to be his possession by
the important position which is en
trusted to one at his age. The bride
is charming and lovely in person and
disposition, one of the sweetest girls
that ever grew, loved by all. She has
been a successful school teacher and
is intelligent. Frank Wright is for
tunate in having won so rare a prize.
The marriage was a very quiet af
fair. There were no cards or Invita
tions Issued, and no one was invited.
It was absolutely a home affair. At
the conclusion of the ceremony the
happy couple went by automobile to
Prospority and took "old Cannon
Hall," and started for Washington,
where they will be "at home" to their
friends. They carry with them the
warm and heartfelt congratulations
and well wishes of their hosts of sin
cere friends. May as much of the en
joyment of life as they can stand
without spoiling be theirs, and may
'hey not he called upon to bear more
than their proportionate share of sor
row that fails to the common lot of
humanity. Some have less joys than
others, some hffVO more sorrow than
others in this life. May the happy
young couple just starting out lind
the road oftenest brighter by the
lightness than gloomier by the dark
ness between the sunshine and sha
dows along the way.?Newberry Her
