Spiked With a Little Romance.

Yesterday morning at 3 o’clock, Rev. John Anderson was surprised by some vigorous knocking on his outside door. Hastily dressing, he answered the summons and found awaiting him a couple who asked him to marry them. They had come a long ways to have this most interesting ceremony performed, having just arrived from Dallas, Ga. After the license was examined and found all right the couple in a few short words were made one, and went on their way rejoicing. The names of the contracting parties are John Asa Dobbs and Miss May Underwood, the former of this city and the latter of Dallas. They have the best wishes of their friends.
