Marriage In Texas.
Miss Alice Tumlin Weds Mr. Rippy, of Nashville.

A Sulphur Springs, Tex., paper says:

At the home of Dr. and Mrs. Kent Kibble, 801 Travis avenue, Miss Alice Tumlin of Sulphur Springs, and Mr. E. L. Rippy, of Nashville, Tenn., were united in marriage on Tuesday evening, February 26th, at 7 o’clock by Rev. G. S. Tumlin, father of the bride.  It was a very pretty home wedding, witnessed only by a few friends and immediate relatives.  The house was beautifully decorated for the occasion with palms and bride’s roses.  Mr. Rippy is from a prominent family of Tennessee, and at present is located in Dallas, being commercial representative of a large Nashville firm.

Miss Tumlin is a daughter of Rev. G. S. Tumlin, a widely known minister of this state, and having once been a resident of this city, carries with her the best wishes of a large circle of friends.  Rev. Mr. Tumlin is well known in Georgia, which is his native state, and that of his wife, formerly Miss Alice Gilreath.  Mr. Tumlin served churches at Marietta, LaGrange, and other Georgia points for several years.  He is now located in Sulphur Springs, but has accepted a call to the Baptist church at Rockdale, Texas, where he will move with his family next week.

The bride wore a handsome spring coat suit which showed off to advantage her beauty of face and queenliness of form.  They left immediately for eastern points, and after March 10 will be at home at the Majestic hotel, Dallas.

The out of town guests were Rev. and Mrs. G. S. Tumlin and Miss Eva Tumlin, of Sulphur Springs; Mr. and Mrs. B. F. Crosby, of the same place; Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Carswell, of Terrell.
