 Midnight Wedding
At eleven o'clock last Tuesday night, the telephone bell at the Presbyterian manse jingled madly, and a voice said, in answer to the usual response, "They have come at last. Can we come around there and have them married at the Manse?"
"Why, of course, any one can be married from the manse, and especially your friends.
In five minutes a large motor car came puffing up to the residence of the Presbyterian pastor and a gay party got out. They had left Macon at five o'clock in the afternoon, expecting to arrive in the city before dark. They didn't, however. Rains had softened the earth in various places and particularly on the margin of a stream abut seven miles from Macon, so that when the heavy car rolled into the mud, it stuck. There it remained while the sun slowly climbed down the western slopes. But that bridal party did not enjoy the sunset as much as they might have under other circumstances. Neither did they rave over the soft twilight that followed, nor the darkness that followed the twilight. Their attention as focussed on mud--plain mud.
Finally, after what seemed ages, the "honk" of an approaching car was heard. The usual signals of distress were given. The stranger attached a rope. There was a mighty heave--and the mud gave way. The bridal party was saved. What reacked it that the benevolent stranger himself got stuck. Is it not all in the days run? So argued the happy party as they alighted, and answered the momentous questions that made two hearts happy and two lives as one.
The contracting parties were Mr. Ray Wilkins (sp) and Miss Alice Beatrice Weeks (sp) who are esteemed residents of Macon. They are friends of Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Babb, who are well know throughout the city.
