Wedding Bells.
A company of seventy people gathered at the home of Mrs. M. H. 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 congratulations.
