In Kingston, Ga., on Wednesday, June 2, by Rev. J. J. Singleton, Mr. E. HUNTER LOWMAN, of South Pittsburgh, Tenn., to Miss ANNIE HUMBER WILLINGHAM, only daughter of C. H. C. Willingham, senior editor of this paper.

The circumstances attending this marriage, which are well-known in this community, almost silence our pen.  Indeed, our heart is too full to write upon it, and nobody but him who has stood in a similar position can appreciate the somber feeling of desolation that now broods over the hearts about which such delicate tendrils of affection were entwined.  But rebuke is not in our heart, or harshness upon our tongue’s end.  No, we love her too well to mar a single minute or second of her happiness by useless and cruel words.  She is happy, and consolation is that thought.  The husband of her choice is a moral, upright gentleman and if our prayers can avail anything at the Mercy seat, one will be that God will keep in his bosom a heart that will ever be more jealous of our pure, gentle and tender sister’s happiness than was our’s.  We can write no more.
