Two Hearts That Beat As One.
Cupids Capering Career Culminates in Cementing Two Happy Hearts at Hymen’s Altar.

On Wednesday evening, October 15, at 8 o’clock p. m., Mr. C. Walter White, and Miss A. Lena Gilreath, were married. The beautiful marriage ceremony was performed at the residence of the bride’s father in Cassville, by Rev. J. B. Robbins.  The attendants were, Mr. Tom P. Trammell and Miss Lillie Gilreath, Mr. W. L. Rowland and Miss Cynthia Myers, Mr. Lem. Mumford and Miss Hellen Chunn. It was one of those happy occasions when youth, beauty, mirth and music combine to make the evening hours glide happily and swiftly away.  Mr. White is the junior member of the firm of C. H. & C. W. White, merchants of this city. He is young, energetic and prosperous, and gives promise of developing into one of the sterling business men of our city. His young wife is intelligent, accomplished and beautiful. The union is a happy one. It is the consummation of love’s first young dream.  It is the happy realization of the rosy tinted fancies of youth. We write under the inspiration of cake – a whole box of cake –sent especially for the editor. Between bites we exclaim, “the sacred flame of wedded love, luxuriantly indulge it!” May success follow you, and happiness crown your days.
