Married at Calhoun.

The constitution contains the following notice of the marriage of Mr. Clifford Barnes and Miss Edith Ransone, at Calhoun:

A pretty and elaborate wedding was solemnized in Calhoun, Ga., yesterday afternoon at 4 o’clock at the First Methodist church. The contracting parties were Mr. Clifford H. Barnes, of Atlanta, and Miss Edith Ransone, of Calhoun. The attendants were Miss Mamie Wyatt, a cousin of the bride, maid of honor, and Mr. E. P. Barnes, of Atlanta, best man. The bridesmaids were Misses Georgia Jones and Maude Ballew, of Calhoun, and the groomsmen Messrs. Sidney J. Heard and J. L. Lanier, of Atlanta. Ushers, Messrs. J. L. Johnson, of Atlanta, and G. F. Ransone, of Tunnel Hill, Ga.

The ceremony was performed by Dr. Hollingsworth, of Cartersville, assisted by Rev. M. C. Williams, of Calhoun.

The bridesmaids formed a pleasing feature of the ménage. Little Juliet Ballew represented Cupid, and had charge of a large transparent “bleeding heart,” which bore on one side the names “Ransone and Barnes.” Just as the ceremony was concluded she bore the one name “Barnes.”

Miss Ransone is one of Calhoun’s loveliest girls and is extremely popular. Mr. Barnes is a gentleman of sterling worth.
