“Hall’s Mills Doings.”

Last Thursday was a day of much astonishment at Halls.  Mr. Will McMakin, of Kingston, passed through in his fine two-horse buggy all harnessed up in best style, and he himself was dressed in the very best style, followed by his father and Rev. Sam Tumlin, and the secret of the thing is to come yet.  They drove about one mile beyond town to the residence of Mrs. Spurlock, and there Mr. Will met his intended bride, Miss Laura Coleman, awaiting his arrival, and when he arrived he led her to the altar and in a few moments they were made happy man and wife by Judge Tumlin.  The groom was one of Kingston’s solidest young men and the bride was one of Carrollton’s fairest belles.  This was a very quick match, they were married in two weeks after they met each other.  Your correspondent thinks they are well matched and extends to them his heartiest congratulations, and wish them a long and happy life.  Now who will be the next to follow?  That’s what keeps the world in motion.

“Kingston Dots.”

On the morning of the 30th September at the summer residence of Mrs. J. M. Spurlock, near Hall’s Station, in Bartow county, Mr. Will G. McMakin, of Kingston, and Miss Laura Coleman, of Eufaula, Ala., were married by Rev. G. S. Tumlin, of Marietta, Ga.  We extend our warm congratulations and wish them a long and happy life.  The groom is one of the most worthy young men in our community, and the bride has made many friends during her stay with us this summer.
