The wedding tonight of Miss Mary Foute to Mr. Paul Walker Jones, of Canton, Ga., will be of wide-spread interest and is causing quite a flutter in society.  Both of these young people have many friends and theirs is to be a beautiful home ceremony with much music and a large wedding party.  The bride’s maid of honor is her sister, Miss Julia Foute, and there are to be two matrons of honor, Mrs. Edward Strickland, Jr., and Mrs. C. R. Sims of Augusta, a cousin of the bride. [This is a very long article, followed by descriptions of entertainments given to the bride to be.  Another equally long article can be found in the Feb. 21, 1907 issue, page 8 “Society” column describing the actual wedding.  Here is an excerpt: “And then all eyes turned toward the bride who entered next on the arm of her father.  She was radiantly handsome in her bride’s robe of white claire de lune –a shimmering, satin finished silk –with elaborate trimmings of real lace, chiffon and pearls.  A sweeping tulle veil was caught to her dark hair with a chaplet of orange blossoms.”  A list of presents is included]
