Cupid’s Dart.
A Loving Pair Made Glad, Two Hearts That Beat As One.

Quite a sensation was created in Cartersville last Sunday evening by the announcement that Walter M. Ryals, formerly the able editor of the American, had married in Atlanta the night before. The report was confirmed by his arrival on the 3:40 passenger train with his blushing and beautiful bride.

Mr. Ryals has, for the past few years, been identified among the ablest and most brilliant of Southern journalists.  He is a young man of superior intellectual abilities and fine business qualifications, and is now the editor of that influential and outspoken Alabama journal, the Anniston Hot Blast, and is making for himself an enviable reputation.  The bride is one of Birmingham’s fairest daughters, who was stopping at the Anniston Inn.

The affair has a slight tinge of romance connected with it, as it was a runaway.

We doff our hat and wish for them a long life of unalloyed happiness and prosperity.
