POPULAR YOUNG COUPLE MARRY
DISTRICT ATTORNEY ELLECT, TOXEY HALL, BECOMES A BENEDICT, MARRIAGE A QUIET AFFAIR
A pretty home wedding was solemnized Wednesday morning of this week at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. John Watts on East Dale Street. When the youngest daughter, Miss Pearl, of this well known and highly respected family was given away in marriage to Hon. Toxey Hall, one of Columbia's most brilliant and successful young lawyers and a scion of one of the oldest and best respected families in this section of the state. The ceremony which took place at 10:30 o'clock in the parlor of the brides parents , was only attended by a very few of the immediate relatives and friends of the contracting parties. Rev. J. B. Quin, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Columbia, pronouncing the nuptial vows. After receiving the congratulations and good wishes of those present, the bridal party were driven to the Great Northern Depot where they boarded the 11 o'clock north bound passenger train for Jackson, where they spent one day taking in the sights of the Jackson Fair, afterwards continuing their wedding trip so as to take in some of the principal cities of the north and east returning to their home here some times about the middle of next week. The marriage of this young couple while not exactly a surprise to Columbia Society of which they were most prominent members was never less unexpected just at this time except to the most knowing ones and those possessing the confidence of the contracting parties, but it is the universal verdict of their many friends that it ought to be and is a most happy union of two young people whom to know is to admire, respect, and love, the groom for his many noble qualities of head and heart which have won him honor and competence for beyond the average and the lovely and accomplished young bride who has been so richly endowed with nature's graces as would entitle her to shine among the fairest of the fair.
