China Wedding.
Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Puckett Very Happily Celebrate Their Twentieth Marital Anniversary.

It was a happy scene at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Puckett on the East Side Monday morning, the occasion being the celebration of these clever people’s china wedding.  Their friends were there in great numbers and the forenoon was passed off pleasantly in conversation, all enjoying themselves to the greatest extent.  Mr. and Mrs. Puckett were the recipients of many congratulations and most cheerful greetings.  When the hour of one arrived the assembled friends sat down to a collation that would stager an epicure.  Everything good to eat was there in magnanimous profusion, such a dinner is rarely given here.  The markets of distant towns were called upon to supply largely the delicacies.  After the dining, which was fully and satisfactorily done, an hour or so was spent pleasantly in conversations, games, etc. 

The following were the presents and names of the donors:
A handsome pitcher by Miss E. M. Padgette.
Vase by Dr. and Mrs. J. H. Mayfield.
