A Swell Colored Wedding.

A swell colored wedding occurred at the African Methodist church last Wednesday evening, the contracting parties being John T. Tribble and Minnie Riverson. The groom is a long time employee of the Jones carriage factory, a widower and well known and popular among his race, while the bride has been employed at the home of Rev. Sam Jones and is considered by members of her race as quite accomplished and nice.

The ceremony was performed by the pastor of the church assisted by another minister.

There was best man attendants, &c., and the function was one well up in its varied appointments.
