A wedding that will be of much
interest in Bristol and vicinity was
solemnized at the bride's home last
Tuesday at 2 p. m. in Holston Valley,
when Miss Sue-Cowan, the daughter
of the late Rutledge Cowan, was
united in holy bonds of wedlock to
William G. Cowan, of Fayetteville,
The guests were received by Miss
Maude Worrell and Mr. James
Lowry. They were ushered in the
parlor where the decorating was
beautiful in the form of an arch of
evergreens with a pryamid of white
bunting covered with ferns.
Miss Ollie Delaney, with her skil
ful touch, presided at the piano,
playing Melody of Love. And the
bride, with Miss Lucy House, of
Scotland Neck, N. C, followed by
the groom, with Tom Pemberton,

While Mendelsshon's wedding march

a shower bouquet of brides' roses.

with ferns to each corner of the
table where the wedding cake was
cut. The bridal party left on the

Misses Nan and Sallie Cowan, Misses
