A Cartersville Boy Slips on the matrimonial Noose in Texas.

Our popular young friend, of Dr. D. W. Curry’s well-known wholesale and retail drug house, stepped over to Texas last week and had the matrimonial noose gently slipped over his head and the following is what the Houston (Texas) Telegram, of last Friday, had to say about it:

“The residence of Mr. Phillip Hardcastle, in the fourth ward, was the scene yesterday morning of mirth and happiness, the event being the marriage of his charming and attractive daughter, Miss Lizzie Hardcastle, to Mr. M. F. Word, a popular and prominent merchant of Cartersville, Ga. Mr. Hardcastle and his family are former residents of Nashville, Tenn., but having lived now for more than ten years in our city, it may appropriately be said that another bright ornament of Houston society has been captured and taken away by a stranger. This is a sufficient hint to our Houston beaux to look well to their laurels, or some of them may have cause for regret when all hope of reparation is past. The happy couple, after the marriage ceremony, at which the Rev. E. D. Junkin, D. D., officiated impressively, departed, amidst the congratulations and best wishes of their friends, on the noon I. G. N. train, for Cartersville, Ga., to which place it is the earnest wish of their many friends that they may journey with pleasure and safety, and after their arrival that constant joy, health and happiness may be showered upon them in their Georgia home.

“It is a familiar adage that troubles never come singly, but the reverse of that adage, namely that joys sometimes come doubly, is not often verified, at least in one day, as it occurred to this community yesterday.”

We congratulate our young friend most heartily upon this step of his life, and trust for the happy couple a life of happiness and prosperity. Mr. Word is one of our most popular young business men, and, besides being an old typo, he is as clever as he is popular. We hope his “lone star” bride may find Cartersville a happy home and we know our people will extend to her a cordial welcome to our home-like society.
