Last Wednesday was not the day one would select for a wedding, for the rain fell spasmodically and a heavy canopy of clouds shut out every gleam of sunshine.  But there was a marriage, bright with rays of happiness, and Adairsville was interested for two of her most valued and respected citizens were the contracting parties.  At the residence of Mrs. M. Wood on Wednesday evening at three o’clock, was a scene of the happy union of Mr. James Morton and Miss Ria Wood.  At the appointed time the bride and groom very gracefully entered the parlors followed by the handsome attendants in easy manner.  Mr. Henry M. Veach, Miss Maggie Anderson, Mr. Joseph P. Bowdoin, Miss Mary Bibb, each taking their respective positions.  Rev. Mr. Taylor of the Presbyterian church in a simple, yet beautiful manner, performed the ceremony.  After congratulations from a large number of friends a nice luncheon was spread by Mrs. Wood, who fully understands the requirements of such.  Good wishes were offered for the long life and prosperity of this newly married couple, who bade us good bye as they hastened to take the four o’clock train for their future home, Tuscumbia, Ala.  The bride and groom are well known here.  The former is of such a nature and excellent traits of character that she was exceedingly popular, not only with the young people, but all who came within range of her acquaintance.  Mr. Morton bears the name of an excellent young man, a character without a blemish.  He is an engineer on the M. & C. R. R. and may well afford to give a blast on his whistle in this happy event in securing a bonny bride.
