Is Dewey’s Nephew.

A Cartersville Young Lady Weds a Kinsman of Hero of Manila.

Cartersville had a small matrimonial sensation last Sunday.

Mr. David Augustus Dewey, a young man of Atlanta came up to the city on that day, and quietly procured a marriage license from Judge Hendricks, the ordinary, and next secured a horse and buggy.

Miss Susie Murchison notified her people about the same time that she was “going to step over to a neighbor’s.” The two were soon seated together in the buggy. They drove out to Dr. W. H. Felton’s. The doctor soon made them one.

They returned to the city and boarded the first train southward for Atlanta.

It seems the young people have been lovers for some time, but saw each other but few times, the courtship being conducted by correspondence.

The bride’s mother is dead, but her father and sister live in town, and she never let either of these know anything of her matrimonial intentions, and the marriage was a surprise to them as well as to her acquaintances.

Mr. Dewey is originally from Massachusetts, and is a nephew of Admiral Dewy, the hero of the great Manila naval battle.
