Quiet Home Wedding of a Popular Couple.

Beautiful and impressive in its sweet simplicity was the marriage of Miss MARY LOUISE JONES to Mr. JAMES C. MILNER, which occurred at “Walnut Grove,” the country home of the bride’s mother, Mrs. Louise Young Jones, Wednesday afternoon at 4 o’clock.

The contracting parties are popular young people of sterling worth and high Christian principles.  Mr. Milner is a son of Col. T. C. Milner, a prominent lawyer and an elder in the Presbyterian church of this city.  The bride is the youngest daughter of the late Thos. F. Jones and a niece of the late Gen. P. M. B. Young.  “Walnut Grove” has been the home of the Youngs for several generations and is a fine old antebellum mansion.  On this occasion the folding doors between the spacious parlors were thrown open and the rooms beautifully decorated in palms, ferns and white flowers while quantities of sweet peas added beauty and fragrance to the scene.

After the ceremony, which was impressively performed by Rev. E. M. Craig, delicious refreshments were served and the young couple, followed by showers of rice and the good wishes of a host of friends, left for Atlanta, where Mr. Milner holds a responsible position with Robeson & Holleman.

The bride was attired in white organdie and looked sweet and girlish.  Her going away gown was of gray cloth.  The presents were handsome and numerous.

On account of the feeble health of Mrs. Jones the marriage was very quiet, only the families of the contracting parties and a few friends, Dr. and Mrs. F. R. Calhoun, Mr. Kirby Anderson, Miss Jane McMakin and Mr. and Mrs. Craig being present.
