An event of special interest to our feminine world will be Miss Nannie Alexander’s millinery opening of her branch store here Friday, the 31st. Suffice it to say that the showing of spring head-wear will be quite up to Miss Alexander’s high standard, and a cordial invitation is extended to the public. As for several seasons past, the store will be in charge of miss Ora Fisher.

Marriage of Miss Ora Fisher and Mr. Jesse McEachern, – Other Interesting Items.

The marriage of Miss Ora Blanche Fisher, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Fisher, of Mount Pleasant, to Mr. Jesse Young McEachern, of Mount Pleasant, took place Thursday evening at 8:30 o’clock at the home of the bride’s parents. To the strains of Mendelssohn’s wedding march, beautifully played by Miss Mabel Wallace, of of Greenville, S. C., the bride, preceded by the little Misses Ruth and Salome Shirey, who scattered rose petals in her pathway, entered from the library, leaning on the arm of her maid of honor, Miss Mary Heilig. The bride was met at the improvised altar in the sitting room by the groom, attended by his best man, Mr. Ray McEachern. The ceremony was performed by the bride’s pastor, Rev. R. A. Goodman, of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, and was witnessed by a few intimate friends of the couple. The wedding was followed by a reception. The house was artistically decorated with ferns and daisies, and illuminated with candles.

ORA BLANCH FISHER, b. Apr. 25, 1887, d. July 27, 1945, m. June 8, 1916, Jesse Young McEachern, b. Dec 12, 1886, d. Sept. 12, 1917.

Ora Fisher McEachern was a true exponent of Christianity. She lived the Beatitudes of her Lord. Gentle and pure in spirit, considerate and merciful in her judgments, loyal and generous in her devotions, pitiful to the needy ones, lovely in her manners, and without guile, she attained unto the fullness of Sainthood.

Miss Ora was a faithful member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina and gave joyful cooperation to all its activities. Her pleasing personality made for her a host of friends who sorrowed at her early passing. Of her it can be said, “Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God.”
