There was a marriage at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Babb near Kendrick Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock that will have a county wide interest on account of the popularity of the bride. Their daughter Miss Mary Julia was given in marriage to Joseph Horace Spear of Corinth there being only a few relatives and friends present.

The yellow and green decorations added to the beauty of the attractive home for this occasion, and the impressive ceremony was pronounced by the Rev. Dan. W. Babb, a minister in active work for more than a half century, and an uncle of the bride.
