On Thursday afternoon, the first inst., at the residence of the bride’s father, at Calhoun, Rev. J. S. Hillhouse pastor of the Presbyterian church at thus place, was united in marriage to Miss Bell Boaz, Rev. W. M. Dyar officiating.

The bride is a daughter of Mr. J. N. Boaz, one of Calhoun’s most prominent citizens, and is an attractive, accomplished and cultured young lady, and possesses to a high degree, the many graces and charms of noble womanhood.  The groom is a young minister of unusual promise, and already ranks with the most prominent of his denomination.  As a preacher he is learned and logical, and has a very happy and impressive style of delivery.  He is one of the most genial and companionable of men.  Since his pastorate of the Presbyterian church here, he ahs greatly strengthened and built it up; and has won the love, admiration and esteem of our entire people irrespective of denomination, who congratulate him upon winning so lovely and lovable bride.

The happy couple reached Cartersville the same evening after the marriage, and were met, in carriages, by a committee of ladies and gentlemen of the Presbyterian church, who escorted them to their beautiful home on Market street, recently purchased by the groom, where an elegant supper had been arranged for them.
