    The ceremony .was performed by the bride's pastor, Rev. C. H. Morgan, of Selma, Ala., and was very quiet and simple with only the closest relatives and friends present.

    The spacious halls were decorated with palms, ferns and festoons of Southern smilax, while the parlor decorations were ferns, smilax and white roses. The place of the ceremony was marked by a pedestal garlanded with white roses and ferns.

    The bride wore ivory white crepe meteor, the waist was of pearls and rhinestones. The veil of illusion was caught in her hair with orange blossoms and her bouquet consisted of white roses with a shower of lillies [sic.] of the valley.

    The only attendant was Miss Hattie McGlathery, sister of the bride, who wore green brocaded charmeuse with lace waist and carried bridemaid roses. Mr. J. H. Pugh of Mobile, Ala., was his brother's best man.

    Before the ceremony music was furnished by Miss Adele Chapman, piano, and Mr. John Chapman, violin, and Miss Ethel McGlathery sang 'Because' and 'Within the Garden of My Heart.'

    Mrs. McGlathery was assisted in receiving the guests by her daughter, Mrs. W. W. McCorquodale, of Jackson; Mrs. Gaston, of Gastonburg, Ala.; Mrs. Frank Pugh, of Frankville, and Mrs. R. F. Bovkin.

    The bride's book was kept by Miss Kate McGlathery, another sister of the bride.

    Mr. and Mrs. Warren Stone Pugh left at 3:30 for their home in Frankville, Mrs. Pugh traveling in blue coat suit and blue hat with a touch of pink.

    The out-of-town guests were: Dr. and Mrs. W. W. McCorquodale, Misses Mary Pugh and Adele Chapman of Jackson; Mrs. Gaston of Gastonburg; Miss. Mattie McGlathery, of Judson College, Marion, Ala.; Miss Mary Louise Wilson, of Leroy, Ala.; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Pugh, Messrs. Will Elmore, John, Will, and Cody Pugh, of Frankville, Ala.; Messrs.
