At the home of Mr. and Mrs.
W.C. Wilson, near Burr, on
Sunday afternoon, occurred the
marriage of two of our popular
young people,Arthur K. King
and Miss Estel Rogers, Rev.
Lloyd of Wharton performing
the ceremony. Only near rela-
tives and friends were present.
A bountiful wedding supper
was spread for the bridal party
at the home of the bride. The
groom is one of our most pros-
perous young planters, a son of
Mr. and Mrs. Monroe King, and
is a young man of sterling
worth and upright habits. The
bride is the youngest daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. W.G. Rogers,
beautiful and accomplished, re-
fined and of domestic tastes.

long life, health, wealth
