A Wedding and Two Celebrations.

Yesterday at the home of our esteemed county man, Capt. E. D. Puckett, there passed off three events of unusual importance.  It was the occasion of the marriage of Mr. J. W. Woodruff, of Walton county, to Miss Barbara Vaughan, of Bartow, Rev. R. H. Jones performing the ceremony in his usual short and graceful manner.  Mr. Woodruff is one of Walton’s solid young men and no young man stands higher in his county, while his excellent young bride is known far and near for her good qualities.  After the ceremony dinner was announced, the like of which we haven’t seen lately.  The table was loaded with all the diets that an epicurean taste could suggest, while the good humor around the table was all pervading.  Each and all seemed to partake of their full share of enjoyment, and all agreed that Capt. and Mrs. Puckett understood the “fixings” necessary to a first-class wedding.

Besides being a wedding affair there were two birthday celebrations: that of Capt. Puckett’s, who was 76 years of age yesterday, and his youngest son 5 years.  The Captain was as lively as if he was sparking a 16 year old damsel, and made our innocent young heart jealous by the way he slung taffy at the prettiest young ladies present.  But such is life, and somebody says there’s “life in the old land yet,” and we heartily believe all of it is consecrated in Capt. Puckett’s physique.
