Matters Social and Otherwise—From a Woman’s Standpoint

A quiet but very pretty wedding occurred last night at the residence of the bride’s mother, in Rome, when Miss Birdie Hoyt and Mr. Frank C. Gilreath were united in marriage by Rev. George T. Gotechius, pastor of the First Presbyterian church. This engagement which was only announced a few days ago, was quite a surprise to the many friends of both parties, and congratulations have been showered on the happy pair since it was made known. The attendants were: Miss Bertha Maddox, Miss Linnie Thomas, Miss Ella Mae Gilreath, and Mr. Nathan Hoyt, Mr. Walter Cothran, and Mr. Will Mitchell, of Rome.

Miss Hoyt is a handsome and charming woman, and during her recent visit here made many friends who will gladly welcome her to her future home.

Mr. Gilreath is well known, having always lived in Cartersville. He has for some time past been the popular city editor of the News, but has recently accepted a commission as district deputy of the Progressive Endowment Guild of America, covering a territory of twenty counties in the western section of the state.

Mr. and Mrs. Gilreath will remain in Rome until the first of January, when they will come to Cartersville, which will be their future home.
