Owing to our inability to obtain full particulars for our last issue, we failed to mention the marriage of Mr. W. A. Mothershead, of New Albany, to Miss Essie Lowry, which occurred at the home of the bride’s parents, 12 miles southeast of Pontotoc Wednesday afternoon of last week, Rev. R. A. Cooper officiating. Mr. Mothershead is a trusted employee of the K. C. M. & B. R. R. at New Albany, and Miss Lowry is one of our county’s loveliest young ladies, and a host of friends among our people wish for her the happiest realization of marital life. The newly married couple left immediately after the ceremony for New Albany, where they will reside.
