On this solemn occasion wedding bells, rice and old shoes did not come in.  A plain marriage without the pomp and show of a church affair. Last Sunday afternoon the Rev. H. A. Willis sat in a meditative mood in his cosey (sic) home, ruminating over the ups and downs that beset the human family, not dreaming that two young hearts that beat as one were at his door in quest of his services to tie the nuptial knot that death alone can sever.  When the doorbell ran, who should he meet but Mr. Thomas C. Moody of Dillon and the lovely Miss Dollie McKenzie of Alfordsville, N. C.  Bright happy smiles beamed over their faces and hearts overflowing with love and  hope.  The knot was tied and the parson’s blessing and best wishes followed them as they stepped out in the wide, wide world to fight the great battle of life.

When the corner was reached Mr. Cooper says he checked his horse up and came down to a slow jog.  However, the young ladies became overbalanced and they both fell out, clear of the wheels.  The horse did not become frightened at all, and soon Mr. Cooper was out and at their sides and sent for physicians. The young ladies were terribly frightened, but other than being shaken up, with possibly a bruise of two they were not seriously injured.  Mr. Cooper  will likely be more careful in the future and t the size of the loads he carries in an h. m. t. buggy – Mullins Enterprise.
