Marriage of MM Iola Davis and Mr Geo
Bayle Wednesday Night
One of Indian rivers most perfect
moonlight nights a commodious church
crowded with people and decorated most
profusely with flowers such were the
surroundings that greeted the bridal
party of Wednesday night when Mr
George Bayles led Miss Iola Davis one of
Titusvilles fairest young ladies to Hy
mens altar at the Methodist church
The head of the church was a floral vision
of loveliness It seemed impossible that
such an array of flowers could be had at
this season of the year
At the designated hour 8 oclock the
bridal party entered the church Mr
Jno C Jones and Miss Sallie Hall and
Mr Fentress Davis and Miss Florence
Vanlandingham officiating as brides
maids and groomsmen leading These
were followed by the flower girls the
little Misses Laura Penney and Leah
Losley who scattered flowers profusely
up the aisle as the bride and groom pro
ceeded to the altar Here directly under
a floral horse shoe suspended from an
arch of evergreens and flowers the bridal
party were met by Rev J E Mickler
who performed the ceremony in a brief
but impressive manner that made them
husband and wife
A reception followed at the residence of
the brides parents which was largely
attended by friends of the contracting
pal ties Indian River band made its
appearance and treated the newlymar
ried couple to delightful music after
which the boys were set up to cake
wine and cigars
The wedding march on this occasion
was rendered by Mrs B B Pyles of
this town
The bride wore a gown of white Hen
rietta cloth trimmed with white silk
quilled ribbon and lace the groom wore
the conventional black
Mr Bayles has been located here most
of the time for a year or more in the em
ploy of the F E C railway lie hits
made a boat of friends in this section
and is a most exemplary young man
well liked by all who meet him The
bride is the only daughter of Mr and
Mrs J T Davis who have resided here
for n numberof years past She has in
fact grown up from almost a child
among friends here and has endeared
herself to all of them su much by her
genial disposition loving modest and
unassuming ways on all occasions
Mr and Mrs Bayles have already com
menced housekeeping having seemed

A Duval County Commissioner Is Iu For
u Change In That County
County Commissioner Bowden of Du
val county was asked recently if there
was never any decrease in the expense
of maintaining paupers in that county
and he paid very seldom He was then
asked if there was no way by which the
expense could be reduced and he paid
he thought it could he done by a
properly managed poor farm He was
asked what hi plan was and he said to
buy 400 or 500 acres of land and make
the county convicts and the male paup
ers that were able erect the necessary
buildings Divide the white and colored
into separate buildings and yards and
make all paupers become tenants and aid
what they could in earing for each other I
employ a superintendent to have charge
of the entire farm and white and colored
women as matrons and make them at
tend to their duties A superintendent
could be hired for 00 per month he
said and women nurses and matrons at
20 per month as needed and let the
present county physician attend to them
This idea of the commissioner was
thought to be a good one and may be
urged as a proper change
No one desires to embarrass or hum
iliate any one who is unfortunately poor
and dependent by making them inmates
and it is believed that this could be
avoided by arrangement of rooms and
tle proper supervision of the commis
sioners The commissioners could give
the farm personal attention by visits and
inspection each month
As one citizen said that some change
was demanded and it was the duty of
commissioners to make it as the present
plan he said was an inducement of some
to be charges on the county and I dare
sayhe continuedsome have never been
seen by the commissioners nor do they
know their real condition either in the
county hospital or outside of it The
sentiment is for less expense in this line
