A Happy Marriage.
Mr. Glen Jones and Miss Charlotte Kirkpatrick Surprise Their Friends by Uniting Their Destinies.

Quite an agreeable surprise was furnished to our city last Thursday evening, by the marriage of Mr. Glen Jones and Miss Charlotte Kirkpatrick.  The ceremony was performed by Rev. Sam P. Jones, at 4 o’clock p. m., at the residence of Dr. Kirkpatrick, on Church street, in the presence of a few friends, and the immediate relatives of the contracting parties.  After the ceremony, and congratulations of their friends, the bride and groom repaired to the elegant residence of Col. R. H. Jones, where a most sumptuous and luxurious repast was served.  Every delicacy known to the most experienced epicure was prepared and we venture the assertion that a happier little party were never assembled around the board.

The marriage was a complete surprise to everybody, and especially so to the knowing ones who pride themselves on “keeping up with the procession.”  Even the most intimate friends of the high contracting parties were totally in the dark until a very few hours before the ceremony.  Miss Kirkpatrick went on with her duties in the school room up to twelve o’clock of the day of the marriage.  On Friday evening the happy young couple left for Mr. Jones’ residence at Stamp Creek mills, which will be their future home.  They were followed by the good wishes of every one in Cartersville.  They are both young, handsome and popular and launch out into life with the very brightest prospects for a successful and happy voyage.  The wish of the American is that they may be safely harbored in the haven of domestic bliss.
