Charlotte Observer: Miss Nettie
McNincb. eldest daughter of the

McNinch, was married last right at
the residence of her mother on
North Poplar street, at 0 o'clock, to
Mr. Oscar J Thies, of Georgia. Rev
Dr. Bowman, of St. Mark's Lutheran
church, officiated. The house was
beanti'ully decorated for the occa
sion, the interior arrangement being
especially pretty for a wedding.
Between the parlor on the right and
hall is a long arch. This arch was
festooned with garlands and flowers,
and here, on a large snow white
rug, the young couple who exchang
ea vows, stood, l be parlor was
elaborately decorated with ivy,
chrysanthemums and ferns, and the
beauty of floral tffeot was enhanced
by the. glow from tbe pink shaded
banquet lamps, which seemed con
8C10U8 or tne nonor done tnem, m
being allowed to lend radiance to
eucb a scene.
There were no attendants, the
marriage being a very quiet affair.
The parlors were filled with rla
tives and special friends, interested
witnesses of the pretty event.
As the clock finished striking the
hour, the bride and groom entered
the hallway and stood under the
arch, and were made '-no longer
twain, but one," by Dr. Bow nan in
an impressive ceremony.
The bride wore a s ylish tailor
made suit of blue cloth, which fitted
her trim Ggure perfectly, and which
was exceedingly b. coming. Those
wbo know her best are heartiest in
their cocgratulations to Mr. Thies.
Bright aud bttractive, she has ulwajs
had friends, and by them has heeu
loved and aprec.ated.
The groom is a son of Captain
and Mrs. A Thies, of the Haile Gold
mine, in South Carolina. He is
general manager of both the Frank.
lin and McDowell gold mines in
Georgia, mines which are operated
by tha Charlotte Mining Company.
He is a young man of excellent busi
ness capacity, and 1b held in high es
teem by all to ho have business or
social dealings with him.'
After the ceremony the guests
were invi ed to partake of the wed
