At Hymen’s Altar.
Mr. Herman Clayton Leads to the Altar One of Florida’s Fair Daughters.

Last Thursday morning, at the home of the bride’s parents at Ocala, Fla., Mr. Herman M. Clayton, a progressive farmer of Floyd county, and Miss Lila Gray were united in marriage. The bride and groom arrived in this city Saturday afternoon and spent a day or two pleasantly with the family of the brother of the latter, Mr. R. A. Clayton.

Mr. Clayton has a large number of friends in this city, and, indeed, throughout the county, who extend to him sincere congratulations on winning the heart and hand of one of Florida’s fairest daughters. He was for a number of years in business here, but of late has been one of Floyd county’s best and most progressive farmers. He has won great popularity at his new home and is now being prominently spoken of as a suitable man to represent his county in the next legislature. His bride, a most estimable, cultured and refined young lady, will find a warm welcome among the friends of her husband in this section of Georgia.

The Courant-American desires to add its congratulations and good wishes to the happy pair.
