“ Kingston.”

Christmas day in Kingston was a very pleasant day, the weather was all we could wish. The Methodist church had been tastefully decorated on the 24 th with evergreens, preparatory for a happy event Christmas morning, and at 8 o’clock most of the citizens met to witness the marriage of Mr. J. W. Barrett of LaGrange, Ga., and Miss Daisy Davidson, daughter of J. M. Davidson, of Kingston. The wedding party were conveyed from the residence of the bride’s father, arriving at the church, the doors were thrown open, and as Mrs. J. N. McKelvey began playing that beautiful heaven ward march, the party marched in. Miss Gertrude Rollins with Mr. Gus McMakin, Miss Annie Hargis with Mr. Frank Barrett, the bride on the arm of her father, and the groom with Mr. J. N. McKelvey, meeting at the sacred altar, where the father gave away his lovely daughter, placing her hand in the hand of the groom. Rev. W. T. Bell, the pastor of the church, performed the ceremony, according to the beautiful ritual of the Methodist church. The party then marched out to the sound of sweet music and returned to the residence of the bride’s father. After receiving the congratulations of friends, a wedding breakfast was served and the happy pair, with the wedding party, marched to the train, where a great number of their friends assembled to see them off. At 9:40 a. m., they boarded the train for LaGrange, their future home. As they left the depot a shower of rice was thrown on them and they departed with the good wishes of their numerous friends.
