Marriage.—Another very pleasant marriage has just been celebrated at Mt. Pleasant, N. C., the high contracting parties being Rev. J. L. Morgan, the new pastor at Enochville, N. C., and Miss Virginia C. Shoup, for nine years connected with Mont Amoena Seminary as pupil and teacher. The happy event took place on Monday evening, May 25th, in Holy Trinity Lutheran church, the ceremony being performed by the bride’s father, Rev. J. B. Shoup of Fitzgerald, Ga. It is said to have been the most largely attended wedding ever held in the place. Eight young ladies, this year’s graduating class of Mont Amoena Seminary, attended the bride, and two of the groom’s classmates in the Theological Seminary were best men, while a classmate of the bride presided at the organ. These young people are quite popular, the bride alone receiving above one hundred presents, many very beautiful and quite valuable. The couple proceeded immediately to the parsonage at Enochville, N. C., where a most friendly reception was held for them next day, and many things helptul toward housekeeping were presented to them. — Visitor.
