Mr. Ray Thaxton of Bernice and Miss Lucy Hill of Shreveport were happily married at the home of the bride at 3 o’clock Christmas Day in the presence of many friends and relatives. Rev. Byram of the local Methodist church officiated. Mr. Thaxton is a very enterprising young business man here, and operates a very successful business in the manufacture of beds, brooms, and has extensive patronage throughout North Louisiana, and due to the quality of the products he manufactures, finds it hard to fill orders. His bride is an accomplished girl and has the sterling qualities that are essential in a happy home. We wish for them the very best that this earth affords.
Mrs. C. A. Heard, of Bernice, died on the 28th of December, after an attack of pneumonia. She was 63 year old, she was the wife of the late Charley Heard, was a devout member of the Baptist church, and her gentle Christian influence will be missed in our community. She is survived by a son, Melton Heard, and a daughter, Mrs. Elzie Grafton.

Pilgreen and Miss Maggie Scott were united in marriage at the office of “Uncle Brooks,” who dispenses “streamlined marriages and no blowouts.” We bespeak for them all the roses and sunshine along life’s way. And, to the foregoing, we may also add Mr. Melvin Brazzeal and Miss Allene Broughton on Christmas Day (What a Christmas!” And to that we add the marriage of Mr. Clark Moore and Miss Floye Hollis of Mt. Union for a NEW YEAR, and what a new year! — all of whom speedily entered upon their honeymoon for life.
