In mentioning the marriage of Mr. W. H. Hargis and Mrs. Fannie Word last week we stated the event was on Friday evening when it really occurred Thursday evening. Dr. Dobbs performed the ceremony, instead of Uncle Johnnie Anderson, as we stated, and it was the first time the doctor had officiated in a marriage since his move to Georgia.
