Hymeneal. –On Tuesday the 10th inst., at 8 o’clock, occurred the nuptials of Mr. Chas. T. Leake and Miss Fannie M. Lawson, both of this county. The ceremony was performed at the residence of the bride’s father, W. J. Lawson, Esq., in the presence of a few of the friends and relatives of the contracting parties, Rev. W. W. Brinsfield officiating. Shortly after the happy pair became as one, the room resounded with kisses and words of congratulation, after which we began to assemble around a table that for beauty, taste and sumptuousness could not have been excelled. All who were present at the marriage were invited to be on hand the next day at the home of B. T. Leake, Esq., father of the groom, where a most bountiful feast had been prepared for the occasion. It is needless to add that both the supper and dinner were hugely enjoyed by all present, and especially by the undersigned bald-headed individual. The bride is one of Bartow’s most lovely and amiable young ladies, and one who is well fitted to make a home of happiness and bliss. The groom is one among our most energetic young men who was recently one of the partners of Leeke Bros., who are now doing a live business in the shingle line, but who has lately embarked in the farming business with flattering prospects. Judging from his demeanor, Charles no doubt thinks that the year of Jubilee has come. We wish for the young couple all the good luck possible. --C. H. C.
