At eight 9'clock last evening at the residence of Dr. W. W. McMACKIN, on Woodlawn avenue, in the presence of a few relatives and friends, J. D. KENNEDY of Lake City and Miss Rose MEYERS of Salem, Ills., were united in the holy bonds of matrimony by Rev. C. B. WINTER of the M. E. church. The bride is a sister of Mrs. W. W. McMACKIN and first met Mr. KENNEDY three years ago while visiting here. She is both beautiful and accomplished, and possesses in a rare degree those traits of character that will make her an amiable and loving wife. The groom has been a resident of Lake City for nearly four years and by his genial disposition and gentlemanly manner has won the confidence and respect of the entire community and as this worthy young couple start on life's voyage under the most favorable circumstances, surrounded by friends, their lot is a happy one; and, while life has its shadows as well as its joys we believe we voice the sentiment of all our people in whishing Mr. and Mrs. J. D. KENNEDY a happy and prosperous journey along lifes pathway. They were the recipients of many costly ad handsome presents as tokens of esteem from their friends. Mr. and Mrs. KENNEDY will go to housekeeping and will soon be "at home" to their many friends.
