A Davis couple celebrated the Fourth of July by going to Sulphur and getting married. The contracting parties were Mr. Ernest Blythe and Miss Sammie Rhodes and they were married at 4 p.m. by the Baptist pastor at Sulphur.

Miss Rhodes is an estimable young lady and holds a position at B. Wolf's store. She has many admirable traits and enjoys a wide friendship. Mr. Blythe is a son of Mr. And Mrs. Geo. W. Blythe, who live near Davis. He recently received an honorable discharge from the navy and now holds a position at the City Barber Shop. He is an industrious and likeable young man and the future no doubt holds good things in store for him.

The News joins their many friends in wishing them much happiness.
