Hall’s Mills.

The latter part of the week we were startled at the sudden marriage of Mr. Will Lumpkin and Miss Jennie C. Edwards.  They had been engaged some time but were undecided when they would marry, and they were still undecided about it until just a few hours before they got married.  The groom got Mr. Charlie McElroy to go down on No. 2 to get his license and come back to Kingston on the Rome accommodation.  The couple met him there and went to the parsonage and were married by Rev. J. E. England, in the presence of the preacher’s family, the bride’s brother and Will T. Morton.  They leave in a week or so for West Point to make it their home.  We wish them a long, happy and prosperous life.  The bride has always been one of Hall’s most attractive young ladies and will leave many friends behind that will miss her bright face and loving kindness.  The groom was one of Hall’s brightest gems until ten months past, when he went to West Point.  He has always been faithful and true and has scores of friends around here.  We highly congratulate both of them and wish them much happiness.  This was not a runaway couple but they just wanted to act a little romantic.
