A pretty wedding on Wednesday afternoon, Dec. 30th, was that of Miss Abigail Stanton to Mr. Reuben Rogers Beasley, of Cartersville, which took place at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Stanton, on Main Street, Newborn. The ceremony at 3 o'clock was impressively performed by Rev. J. D. Milton, and there was present to witness only a family gathering. As the people marched in by the strains of the wedding march, rendered sweetly by Miss Mary Speer, they paused just in front of a bank of beautiful palms and ferns, under a bell suspended by garland of green.

The bride wore a handsome tailored suit of peacock blue, the coat opening over a hand embroidered net waist, a fur toque and a handsome set of sable furs completed the costume.

Mr. and Mrs. Beasley, with the bridal party, left on the 4 o'clock train for Atlanta, and in Covington were entertained between trains at an informal reception given by Mrs. Evans Lunsford. They left Atlanta the next afternoon for his home, where a reception was tendered them.

Mrs. Beasley as Miss Abigail Stanton was a graduate of the G. N. & I. College of Milledgeville, and one of Newborn's most highly cultured young ladies, who numbers her friends by the score.

Mr. Beasley is one of Bartow county's most substantial business men, and has a host of friends throughout Georgia and Tennessee.
