days when Hickory was a waste
place, and outlined her progress
since the days of his youth.
These addresses were splendid
efforts of the orator's art, and

Popular Couple Wed Suddenly
Hickory had something of a
sensation this morning when it
was learned that Mr. J. C. Mar
tin and Miss Annie Little had
been quietly married at the Rec
tory last evening at 7:30. They
left on the next train for a short
trip to New York and other
It had been known for some
1 time to the intimate friends of
the couple that there would prob
ably be a marriage in the near
future; but matters had been
kept too quiet for a hint of their
purposes to leak out. Mr. Mar
tin is one of our best known bus
iness men, popular with all who
know him, and the bride is a
charming woman, with friends
wherever she is known. The
Democrat extends best wishes.
