Large Marriage KeoorJ.
Cupid has been firing his darts
with unerring aim during the past
week. Since last Thursday County
Court Clerk Thomas has Issued mar
riage licenses to fifty happy couples
and sent them on their way rejoic
ing. Twenty six of these were
white couples and twenty-four
colored. A marriage license now
costs $2 50; $2 of the amount going
to the county, and 50 cents being
charged for the privilege of sticking
a war revenue stamp on it. Thus it
will be seen that Maury County
lovers have netted the county $100
and the Government $2o during the
past week. This marriage record is
an almost unprecedented one.
