Pine Log.

‘Tis a little late but so important an event should be chronicled.  A marriage had been announced the 2nd Sunday afternoon at Pine Log church.  Many guesses were made as to who the guilty parties were.  At last the sun stood at meridian on the looked for day.  The clans began to gather.  Numerous eyes showed glistening interrogation points.  The singing was dull.  The hour arrived but no loving couple stood at hymen’s altar.  Snail like the moments moved, the suspense increased.  It was almost intolerable.  Every little noise outside of the church swayed the audience.  The parties not yet arrived.  What can be the matter?  Some one darkens the door, all eyes are turned, but alas.  The music of buggy wheels at length are heard and Mr. J. C. Collins and Miss Sallie Covington attended by Mr. C. M. Maxwell and Miss Maude Covington, Mr. M. A. Upshaw and Miss Collins, moved gracefully to the sacred altar and Mr. Collins and Miss Covington are joined in wedlock.  Rev. W. F. Hamby officiating.  It is said that some persons in the audience did not know who were married, some of the attendants giving assent to all questions propounded.
