"Bartow County—Kingston.”

Lat Friday evening Prof. W. T. Freeman boarded the south bound train and to the surprise of most everyone he brought back from Columbus Miss Emma Murphy as Mrs. Freeman.

The marriage is a romantic affair. Many years ago, when they were much younger than now, they were betrothed, and one of those unfortunate love affairs broke off the engagement. The professor married another lady, and they lived together happily for many years, when death claimed her, and after a few years of sorrow he sought his old love and the old flame was rekindled and she kept the old engagement ring for the second engagement.

We wish them many happy years.
