Marriage of Douglass Wikle.

As these lines are being written (Tuesday evening) a ceremony is probably in progress near Nashville in which a Cartersville boy is taking a leading part.

Perhaps not a half dozen people in Cartersville knew, when Douglas Wikle boarded the north bound train last Sunday morning that he was on his way to his own wedding. But such was the fact.

He stole a match on his most intimate friends, and when the news flashed over the wire Tuesday that Doug. Wikle was married no one seemed quite ready to accept the information as true.

He has won for his wife one of the truest and most beautiful of Tennessee’s queenly women. Many Cartersville people will remember Miss Bertie Temple, of Nashville, who has several times visited in our city. She was a strong social favorite and won many friends during her short visits here. When she comes to us again it will be as Mrs. Douglas Wikle. And the welcome accorded her will be hearty and sincere; for in addition to her own popularity she will come as the wife of one of the most popular and widely known young men in North Georgia.

Mr. Wikle has spent his life in Cartersville, and he has many friends here. His social and business relations are the very highest, and I do not believe there is a man in North Georgia who can say that Douglas Wikle ever did him an intentional wrong. He is everywhere and at all times an honorable gentleman. In every relation of life he has shown himself worthy of the confidence and friendship so generously given by our people, and the congratulations and best wishes of his friends—and that means everybody—are freely given on this his wedding day.

Mr. and Mrs. Wikle will spend two weeks on a wedding tour and then return to Cartersville to reside. They are expected home about August 15.

Doug., old boy, I congratulate you. Shake!---W. J. N.
