Reception to Mr. J. S. Candler and Bride.

The most elegant event of the season was the delightful reception tended by Col. and Mrs. J. W. Harris, Sr. to Mr. John S. Candler and bride, nee Miss Lula Garnie of Jacksonville, Fla., at their residence on Main street on last Friday evening. The elegant home of Col. Harris was on this occasion rendered more beautiful and attractive by the elaborate decoration. Especially was this true as regards the dining room. Above the mantle-piece, amidst garlands of evergreens, was the letter C. Immediately above the place designated for the bride and groom during supper was an umbrella, like a canopy formed of vines and flowers most artistically arranged. Indeed the entire room was exquisitely decorated, with here and there, cages of night singing canary birds.

At 10 o’clock supper was announced, and the party filed into the dining room and lingered long around the board, which was covered with the richest profusion of everything that could tempt the taste of the most fastidious epicure.

The bride looked the essence of loveliness in handsome cream satin cut en train point lace, and diamonds.

Miss Parrott wore brocaded nile green silk.
Miss Dobbins wore pale blue satin and lace.
Miss Price wore gaslight blue nuns veiling.
Miss Johnson wore a combination of crimson and cream nuns veiling.
Miss Isa Williams wore dark green velvet.
Miss Lillie Williams wore black silk.
Miss Wikle wore crimson silk.
Miss Lula Jones wore handsome black satin.
Miss Norris wore white tulle and satin.
Miss Nellie Jones wore blue silk.
There were many other elegant costumes.

Among the gentleman present, were Judge Fain, Messrs. D. W. Curry, J. F. Best, T. W. H. Harris, Miles Dobbins, Jr., W. H. Wikle, G. S. Johnson, W. H. Best, A. S. Johnson, R. W. Murphy, Theo. M. Smith, J. W. Harris, Jr., T. W. Milner, Douglas Wikle, and J. T. Owen, and Asa Candler, of Atlanta.

Mr. and Mrs. Candler left on Monday for Atlanta, their future home. Mr. Candler was formerly a Cartersville boy, but is now one of the most popular and promising young attorneys at the Atlanta bar. His friends here have bright anticipations for his future. And, as he is just stepping upon the arena of real life, they wish for him and his lovely and accomplished bride unbounded happiness and prosperity.
