WADE - COOEY:  Married at Westville: Last Sunday afternoon a young man and maiden, whose studied effort to appear natural and commonplace, betrayed the whole secret, drove up to the residence of Rev Peacock, remaining but a moment, and not alighting from their vehicle, immediately turned about and drove to the residence of pastor Ross, of the local M E church. The Reverend gentlemen fortunately, was at home, and calling him out, he was presented with a duly authorized marriage license, made out in the name of the high contracting parties, Dr John Wade and Miss Mary Cooey, both of Westville, and the surprised parson was then and there invited to tie the gordian knot of bliss and double felicity, which he proceeded to do as they sat in the buddy side by side, tying them together, hard and fast, the matrimonial bonds never to be broken "while both do live". Young doctor Wade is one of our most popular and enterprising young men who has chosen the high and sacred profession of medicine as his life's work. Although not yet quite perfected in his medical studies, his services are already in demand by an increasing call from those in need of a doctor, and he has been giving eminent satisfactory so far. The beautiful blushing bride, whose bright eyes are every sparkling with innate mischief, is one of Westville's famous bells, and where are belles and beauty and renown, distinctions are invidious. The happy partners for live are at present "at home" at the residence of the bride's mother. The future beckons for them with bright promise, and may their life's bargue ever float o'er calm, untroubled seas. May prosperity and happiness be their constant companion through life's journey.
