TWO PRETTY WEDDINGS


GLASSBURN-FORWARD and LONG-ADAMS Nuptials Occur This Week.

A very nice church wedding was solemnized Tuesday afternoon at St. Mary's at 5 o'clock when the service was said that united Miss Isabell ADAMS of this place and William LONG of Chicago. The ceremony was performed by Rev. L.X. DuFOUR and was the beautiful ring service of the Catholic church. The couple were attended by James LONG, a brother of the groom and Miss Mamie BURKE. The bride was tastefully and very becomingly attired in a pearl gray crepe de chin creation and carried bride's roses. The brides maid, Miss BURKE, was gowned in a pretty pale pinke batiste creation, she carried roses. The ushers were William and Sterling BURKE.

After receiving the congratulations of the many friends and relatives at the chruch an informal reception was tendered Mr. and Mrs. LONG at the brides mother's home south of town. The couple will visit here a short time and then go to Chicago where they will reside.

The bride is the daughter of Caroline ADAMS who resides south of Tampico and is a member of a well known prominent family. She is a bright handsome, lovable young lady greatly admired by any number of people in the vicinity.

Mr. LONG is a son of Mr. and Mrs. James LONG of Chicago and is an engineer employed on public works in the city. He is a young man of considerable ability in his chosen profession and is well liked by all who have had the pleasure to meet him. Congratulations of his many friends are extended.
