JNO W. DOVE, Claimant
Mr. Ellis Small, the young Nimrod of this beat, knowing that if any one could appreciate a good thing it was the editor of a county paper, sent us a fine turkey which he had just bagged. We had it for dinner today served in Gus McNeil’s best style. Ellis may be small by name and we have met bigger men in statue but there is nothing else small about him and his heart is big enough for two.
At. Livingston, Sumpter Co., on the 7th inst, at the residence of the bride’s mother, Mrs. Rodgers, I. I. Canterbury, of this town, and Miss Margie Rodgers.
The bride who has many friends in this county is one of Sumpters fairest daughters and the groom one of our rising and popular lawyers. We understand that they will take up their quarters for the present at the residence of Dr. A. B. Stone, of this town.
We sincerely hope that—
“No jealousy their dawn of lover o’er cast.
Nor blasted be their wedded days with strife;
May each season look delightful
When it’s past;
To this fond husband and his faithful wife.”
