Married, in Chicago, Illinois, at the residence of the bride’s father, Mr. C. H. Horine, 4,300 Indiana street, by Rev. T. J. Sunderland, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Dr. OLAF OSCAR ROBERTSON, of the Atlanta Health Institute, to Miss MAY BELLE HORINE.

We learn that the above delightful event was private, but exceedingly brilliant, and that the elegant parlors of the bride’s home contained a select few of the youth and beauty of the great western metropolis. The presents were numerous, handsome and substantial.  The happy couple stopped over in Cartersville among the Doctor’s many Bartow friends Sunday and Monday; and, on Monday night, an elegant reception was given them by Judge and Mrs. M. G. Dobbins, at Rowland Springs.  The affair was one of great pleasure and happiness—a befitting welcoming to the beautiful bride to our sunny southland.

The heartiest and best wishes of a host of friends follow this congenial couple.  May their future be of the rosiest colors, the cares of life few and, finally, after they have completed life’s duties, may they find a beautiful home beyond the skies is the wish of an humble and grateful friend.
