Quietly steals away to Alabama and Returns with a Bride.

On Tuesday morning of last week Mr. John D. Trotter and J. W. Stanford quietly left the city, leaving no intimation of their destination or intention and when they returned on Wednesday evening accompanied by a lady their friends were greatly surprised.

But the story was soon told and congratulations were in order. Mr. Trotter accompanied by his best man, Mr. Stanford arrived in Gadsden Ala., late Tuesday evening and on Wednesday morning at six o’clock the services of Rev. J. S. Robinson were secured and the ceremony was soon performed making Mr. John D. Trotter and Miss Idella Christopher man and wife. The marriage took place at the bride’s mother Mrs. Wm. Christopher, on Walnut street, and the party immediately took the train on their return to Cartersville arriving here at six o’clock Wednesday evening.

John Trotter is one of the most progressive farmers of Bartow county, and is a jolly and genial gentleman, and his friends in Cartersville give a cordial welcome to his charming bride.
