On Monday Mr. R. E. L. Majors and Miss Rachel Jefferson were united in marriage.

The ceremony was performed at eight o’clock p. m. in the parlor of the Majors House, Rev. C. E. W. Dobbs officiating.

The attendants were: James Whitehead and Miss Corrie Payne, Emmett Maddox and Miss Bertie Turner, Thomas Williams and Miss Mary Puckett, John Trippe and wife.

There was a pleasant assemblage numbering nearly fifty persons. The ceremony was beautiful and impressive, and as soon as it had been ended friends went forward and offered their congratulations, after which all repaired to the spacious dining room where a royal spread awaited attention. The feast was just such an one as the great culinary knowledge and skill of Mrs. E. Majors, the hostess of the occasion would always assure. The spread was tempting, varied and elegantly prepared. After supper the party repaired to the parlor, where pleasant conversations and delightful music was the order until the dining room had been cleared and the superlatively sensitive had bid good night adieus, when the jolly throng again sought the unrestrained precincts of the dining hall and were soon lost in the enchanting pleasures of the “mazy.” Amid dancing and conversations the hours sped on wings of pleasure until twelve when the crowd dispersed.

Mr. Majors is a genial and industrious young man with many friends. He is a stone cutter at present employed by D. R. Gaines, and is an artisan of no mean pretensions.

The bride is a daughter of the late James A. Jefferson, of near this city, and is a lady esteemed in a wide circle for her many virtues.

The bride and groom both possess hosts of friends who wish that their barque may glide smoothly, safely adown life’s turbid stream, encountering no breakers in their voyage.
