A Happy Marriage. On last Wednesday evening at six o'clock a very pretty house wedding was solemnized at the residence of Ed Thomas in this city, Mr. A. D. Rouse, of Elizabethtown, being the groom, and Mrs. Mattie E. Cubbage, of this city, the bride. It was a quite affair, only a few relatives and friends of the couple being present to witness the ceremony. Rev. G. F. Cundiff, pastor of the M. E. church, south, officiated, Miss Jemmie James being maid of honor and James Rogers C. H. Stuart attendants. They are a well suited couple, both nearly the same age, and it being the second time for each to enter the marital state. The bride is a well known and estimable lady popular both in the city and county, and wherever she is known, while Mr. Rouse is a prominent citizen of Elizabethtown , at present with the Gardner-Warren Implement Co., of that city, a gentleman well worthy of the splendid woman he has made his wife. They were accompanied by the wedding party to the 7:45 train, which by the way was some three hours late, upon which they left by way of Louisville for Elizabethtown where they will reside. The Gazette joins their many friends in extending congratulations and best wishes hoping they may have a "Rousing" happy time all through the meridian and decline of life.
