The deerations for the occasion were simple, but very artiscally arranged, making lovely and attractive setting for thit event of interest to our whole com- munity. Masses of handsome fern were ]anked in the chancel in a micirele and against those as back- ground were placed baskets of yeL low golden glow and the pulpit space in fr6nt was filled in with larc vases of the same vividly colored flowers and of asparagus ferns. The only attendant were the two uhers Mr. Harvey Johnston, brother-in- law of tlCe bride, and Mr, Charle Stocett. Th young couple came In together to the strains of the wed- ding march played by Mrs, Roy E Cox. The bride was Iovel in a handsome navy blue suit of poireti twill with an exquisite corsage! bouquet of white rose-buds and fillies of the valley. Her hat was of gray cloth embroidered in Persian shades, and her shoes were gray kid pumps to match. Immediately after the ceremony Mr.'and Mrs. Masey entertained at a luncheon where covers ere lald for twenty-four, this being a happ gathering of the bride's family. The D L Cumbo's couple then left in thei automobile for New Orleans and th $ $ GuLf Coast, where they will spend their honeymoon, after which they WOODVILLE, MISS. will be at home in Hattiesburg. The bride, who is the youngest daughter of Mr& M. E, Brannan, Of this town, is a member of a promi- nent family of this county and as one of its sweetest and most attrac- tide daughters is very deservedly pop- ular here. After graduating from the A. H. School here she attended a btminess college and then accepted a clerical position with the Sou,hero Railroad Company, at Hattiesbur. which she has filled most acceptably for the past five years. Mr. Corley has a similar position with the same company. So it wits that love found its way into the hearts of each, which culminated in the happY3 event of Wednesday. He is a mem- ber of an influential family of Mississippi and is a young man who is highly esteemed wher. he is known. Our wish is that their entire future be as bright and roseate as the day on which they pligjhted their troth.
