Robert Ryals Married.
The Happy Event Takes Place at Montezuma, Georgia.

Mr. Robert Ryals, son of Rev. J. G. Ryals, was married at Montezuma, Ga., Thursday afternoon of last week.  The Macon Telegraph says of the marriage: “Prof. Robert L. Ryals, principal of the Montezuma Male and Female Institute, and Miss Willie Auchinson, his assistant teacher, were happily married at the residence of Mr. Yancy Hill, Thursday afternoon at 4 p. m.  The marriage was a surprise to every one.  Not the intimate friends even were aware of his intentions.  Rev. W. D. Powers, of Macon, performed the ceremony.  They came to Macon on the 6 p. m. train with the congratulations of all.  Prof. T. E. Ryals, of Macon, has charge of the school until his brother returns.”

Mr. Ryalls is a Bartow county boy, and is one of the brightest young men in the State.  He graduated at Mercer University last year, taking the first honor.  This year he has been at the head of a flourishing school at Montezuma and has been making quite a reputation for himself.  His friends here send to him their sincere congratulations over this happy event.
