Again the two gem cities of North Georgia, Marietta and Cartersville, have been united by the bond of matrimony.

On Thursday morning last Mr. F. M. Durham took the South bound train, and soon landed at Marietta, where, at 2 p. m., he was married to Miss A. R. Stripling, of that city.

The happy couple returned to Cartersville on the afternoon train, and at night, a company of Mr. Durham’s friends united with them at his pleasant home in a sumptuous feast, of which the Courant American received liberal samples, and returns thanks for the same.

Everybody will join us in wishing for clever Frank Durham and his amiable and accomplished bride, long life and a full measure of happiness.

On Thursday evening last at 4 o’clock, at the home of the bride’s father, Mr. Virgil Tumlin, Mr. W. A. Kirkpatrick was married to Miss Lottie J. Tumlin, Rev. J. S. Hillhouse performing the ceremony.  Thus two more of Bartow’s worthy young people have linked their fortunes, and as they together proceed down life’s pathway may no thorns come in their way, is the wish of the Courant American and numerous friends.  A reception was given the same evening at the home of Mr. Napoleon Tumlin, and numerous relatives and a few friends were present.  The marriage was quiet, being witnessed by near relatives alone.
