Married In Fun.

But it was claimed to be a legal and solemn ceremony.

The following dispatch from LaFayette will interest the friends of the young lady who is well known in Cartersville:

Miss Ella Johnson, who has been visiting a friend in Rome, returned home last week. Guy Cothran, of Rome, was a passenger on the northbound train Sunday afternoon. Upon his arrival he stated that he and Miss Johnson were married in Rome one week ago.

This announcement caused considerable surprise among the friends of the young lady. Upon being asked about it she said that what she supposed to be a mock ceremony was performed, but Mr. Cothran says the marriage is legal, as the ceremony was performed by one who is clothed with the power of authority, and was witnessed by a number of friends.

Mr. Cothran is a prominent insurance man in Rome, and Miss Johnson is one of the most beautiful and accomplished young ladies in North Georgia.
