Mann at Rosecrans, Ill., on Wednesday evening, Feb. 17th, 1897, to
witness the marriage of her daughter, Myrtle E., to Austin T.
Savage, of Hickory. Mendelssohn's wedding march was rendered by
Miss Eva Kennedy and the bride and groom elect, attended by Mr.
Lee Savage, a brother of the groom, as best man, and Miss Evelyn
Atkinson, of Chicago, as bridesmaid, advanced to a position
before the company in the parlor. The ceremony was performed by
Rev. W. M. Runyan, pastor of the Hickory M. E. church. Hearty
congratulations were extended by the company, after which each
joined a relief expedition to aid in unburdening the heavily
laden tables. The elegant and bountiful supper was most
thoroughly enjoyed. These esteemed young people have launched
upon the matrimonial sea with the sincerest wishes of their many
friends for a safe and unclouded voyage. Many beautiful and
practical tokens were bestowed. The News extends
