The most important social event that has occurred in Calhoun society for some time was the marriage on last Thursday evening of Mr. F. A. Cantrell, to Miss Harris Reeves.  The marriage took place at the Baptist church in Calhoun, Rev. G. S. Tumlin, of Kingston, officiating.  The attendants were Col. O. N. Starr, of Calhoun, with Miss Willie Medlock, of Decatur, Mr. A. F. Cantrell, of Rome, with Miss Bell Boaz, of Calhoun, Mr.  Elijah A. Brown, of Atlanta, with Miss Ida Harlan, Mr. W. A. Robertson with Miss Lela Barrett, Mr. W. F. King with Miss Maggie Cantrell, Dr. H. N. Gann with Miss Jennie Ellis, Mr. C. O. Boaz with Miss Lucile Malone, Maj. H. A. Chapman with Miss Mamie Pitts.  The church was crowded with the friends of the contracting parties, and a most beautiful ceremony was performed.  The bridal party went from the church to the residence of the bride’s father, Mr. A. W. Reeves, where an elegant supper was served, and an evening of rare pleasure spent by those who were fortunate enough to be present.  We are told that this is only the commencement of a series of marriages in Calhoun, the result of which will be to almost entirely depopulate the town of marriageable young people.  The gallant, handsome and popular editor of the Calhoun Times will not be left much longer to tempt the sweet unmarried girls of the town.  We are reliably informed that he is “expecting every minute to be the next.”  This by way of parenthesis.  Mr. and Mrs. Cantrell start in life with the warmest and kindest wishes of their hosts of friends for a successful and happy voyage.  Mr. Cantrell is a young lawyer of push and promise, and his wife is one of the most cultivated and accomplished young ladies of Gordon county.
