The following cards were received yesterday:

Mr. J. Frank Stephens announces the marriage of his daughter, Laura Peck, to Mr. Madison Milam on Tuesday evening, September the third at nine o’clock, p. m.

The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. J. Frank Stephens and she is a very beautiful young woman of many accomplishments.  The groom is the third son of Mr. and Mrs. Sam Milam and is one of the most prominent young business men of our city.

These young people had kept their secret well and not until a few days before, did their friends know the exact date upon which they were to be married.

It was a quiet affair at the home of the bride with only the relatives and a few intimate friends present.

Mr. W. A. Cleveland was the officiating clergyman and Miss Mayme Hudgins presided at the piano to signal with the strains of Mendelshon’s wedding march, the approach of the bride and groom into the parlor where the guests awaited them.

In a prettily decorated bow window this handsome young couple stood to make their vows, the bride wearing a lovely going away gown of blue voile with hat, suede shoes and gloves to match.  She carried an exquisite arm bunch of bride’s roses and lilies of the valley.  Congratulations followed and Mr. and Mrs. Milam left on the ten thirty train for Cincinnati and the north.  Upon their return they go to housekeeping in a pretty new cottage on Gilmer street.
