Ever be filled with life’s pure wine;

As a rainbow o’er their house shine.”

HYMENEAL.  Last night, at the residence of Mr. W. Carey Dodson, his sister, Miss Julia Dodson, was married to H. I. Hall, of this city.  The ceremony was performed by Rev. J. H. Martin, of the Presbyterian church.  The bride is a most charming and intelligent young lady, gifted with all the talents that make the character of woman loveable; and of the groom it is only necessary to say that he could have no higher recommendation than to be accepted by the accomplished lady who has just become his wife.  We wish them a life of happiness.

Infant Son of Mr. and Mrs. Duff O. Dodson Interred Yesterday.

The funeral services of little Duff Lewis Dodson, 5 months old, infant son of Mr. and Mrs. Duff C. Dudson, who died suddenly Thursday at 6 o’clock, were held at the Dodson home, 613 Washington street, at 10 o’clock Friday morning, Rev. Mr. Holt, pastor of the

Georgia Avenue Presbyterian church, officiating.

After the singing of “Safe in the Arms of Jesus” and “Asleep in Jesus,” Miss Cloud tenderly sang “There is a Beautiful City ,” then Rev. Mr. Holt made a few remarks, and afterwards offered prayer for the bereaved parents.  The service at the grave was simple, but extremely pathetic.

One of the most touching and beautiful incidents connected with the funeral was the presence of a number of little children at the services, and afterwards in the procession, driving the Dodson family’s old pony hitched to a buckboard, and on which the little fellows had put mourning in memory of their departed friend.
