Devotees at Hymen’s Shrine.

On last evening at half past eight o’clock at the residence of Dr. William Farrell, a most impressive, and beautiful ceremony was performed. Two hearts that have loved long and truly were bound together by the silken cord of matrimony and two young people—both noble specimen’s of God’s creation—pledged themselves to love and cherish the other, “until death do us part.”

The contracting parties to the solemn vows were Mr. R. L. Williams, formerly of Cartersville, now one of Rome’s leading business young men and Miss Lucy Farrell, the accomplished daughter of Dr. William Farrell, and in a most impressive manner were they bound together in the holy bonds of wedlock by Col. R. H. Jones, the uncle of the groom.

Stretched out before the young couple adown the vista of coming years, is a life of full pure and blissful happiness and earnestly does the Bulletin hope that they ever dream of happiness will be fully realized. The groom is a young gentleman who is liked and respected by all who know him, a gentleman in every sense of the word, and an exemplary honest business man, who is a valuable addition to any city. The bride is one of Rome’s fairest daughters, and lucky is Mr. Williams to have secured such a partner to share with him the joys and sorrows of life. May their journey through life be impeded by no cloud of trouble, and after life race has been well run, may they find in a brighter world a happiness forever.---Rome Bulletin.

Robert has done well and his many friends here heartily congratulate him. The bride is one of the loveliest of the lovely and a Belle in Rome society. They are at present sojourning in our city, at the residence of the grooms mother.
