of the prettiest and sweetest
little girls that ever drew breath
of life have decided to get mar-
ried and want you, if you will, to
meet us at the Baptist church at
Cranfllls Gap, July 6. and act as
master of ceremonies.” On ar-
riving at the Gap about 5 a’clock
p m we found the house full of

gan to emit sweet music when in

Miss Millie Anderson, Benjamin
Anderson and Miss Olllve Ander-

Jennie Tergerson, Ollie Terger-
son and Miss Lizzie Nystle and

Tergerson and arranged them-
selves on either side of a beau-
tiful arch prepared for the oc-
casion. when J, P. Nystle and
Miss Matilda Nelson marched
up and stopped under the arch,
while we, in as brief a way as we
could, said the words that made
them husband and wife. Ws
