Ocala has never seen a more beauti beautiful
ful beautiful church' wedding, nor one in which
more general and sincere interest was
taken, than that of Wednesday night,
at which Miss Annie Margaret Atkin Atkinson
son Atkinson gave her hand to Mr. Alfred John
Deck. '; -y
The bride is the youngest daughter
of Mr; .Montholon Atkinson, an old
citizen of the Fellowship section, who
passed away, full of years and honors
a few years ago. Since she was a lit little
tle little girl, she has made her home with
her brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and
Mrs. S. T. Sistrunk, and in the years
in which she grew from pretty child childhood
hood childhood to lovely womanhood, she has
won the love and confidence of un uncounted
counted uncounted friends. For almost five years
she was the society editor of the Star,
and by her tact and talent won the
greatest praise for herself and added
to the interest and popularity of the
paper. She is a graduate of our high
school, the president of its first
alumni association, and for years ef efficiently
ficiently efficiently served as secretary of the
Woman's Club. She has livedamong
us a life of beauty'and usefulness; it
is probable that no other young wom woman
an woman of our city has "more friends or
deserves them more.

church, the Sunday school and the
altar guild, and all the other members
were anxious to do her honor. The
other members of the altar guild
passed many, hours in preparing the
church for the wedding, and their in industry
dustry industry and good taste was evident.
In the few minutes between the as assembling
sembling assembling of the wedding guests and
the ceremony, a beautiful musical
program was rendered. Mrs. W. H.
Jackson sang "The Voice that Breath Breathed
ed Breathed Over Eden," and Miss Marguerite
Porter "Oh, Perfect Love." Mrs. D.
E. Mclver's skillful fingers meanwhile
coaxed sweet strains from the organ.
At 9 o'clock the bride, leaning on
the arm of her brother-in-law, Mr.
Sistrunk entered. ; She made a lovely
picture in her wedding gown of white
tulle, whose fleecy folds fell over an
underdress of white satin, trimmed in
seed pearls. The gown had a long
court train and tulle veil worn over
the face with Juliette cap of orange
blossoms and falling to the hem of
the train in the, back. The costume
was completed with an arm bouquet
of bride roses and lilies of the valley.
As the bride entered, Mrs. Mclver
softly played V "Lohengrin," to the
music of which the wedding party
passed up the aisle. The bride was
preceded by -her flower girl, Miss
Mary Elizabeth Yancey, a most
charming little fairy in her fleecy
garb of white. Following were the
maid of honor, the, bridesmaids arid
groomsmen, Misses Virginia Sistrunk,
Bettie Wray Mclver, Eugenia Fuller,
Alice Bullock, Mary Wyatt Galbraith,
Emma and Edna Nelson, Messrs. Ju Julian
lian Julian Bullock, H. D. Palmer, W. J.
Frink" Hibbert Weathers, Tom B.
Pasteur and R. D. Mathews.
; At the chancel they were met by
the groom and his best man, Mr, S.
L. Mathews, and the ofliciating.clergy ofliciating.clergy-man,

. After the wedding, Mr. and Mrs.
Sistrunk, for Mr. and Mrs. Beck, in informally
formally informally entertained a large number
of their friends at their residence on
South Line street.' The pretty Sis-
trunk home, beautifully lighted and ;
decorated, was thronged until mid midnight
night midnight with friends who vied with each
other in the best of wishes for the
bride and groom.
Light refreshments were served, and
the hours passed most pleasantly with
conversation, interspersed with music.
Mrs. W. H. Jackson, accompanied by
Miss. Marguerite Porter on the piano,
sang most beautifully, her superb
voice thrilling all who heard.
The most interesting feature of the
evening was cutting the wedding
cake. The young folks gathered
around the big cake and with utmost
care and eager anticipation proceed proceeded
ed proceeded to cut it slice by slice. Miss Ethel
Borland found the thimble, and Mr.
Hibbert Weathers raked off the dime,
and everybody was immensely amus amused

The tried to tease Mr. Beck, by say saying
ing saying it was a sure sign his wife would
be married again, but he stoutly de
clared that wedding cake omens were
all superstitions, and he wasn't su superstitious.
Everybody admired the presents
which had been bountifully showered
on the bride. It is probable that no
bride in Ocala has ever received more.
The library was entirely filled with
them. They were all pretty, and all
were useful. There was china, silver,
glass and cutglass, jewelry and
other things too numerous to mention.
With them went many messages of
congratulations from all over the
country, some coming from the Pa Pacific
cific Pacific coast. Mrs. Beck has proof in
plenty that she is a much beloved and
appreciated young woman.
" The friends of the bride and groom
were prepanne a gorgeous send-on:
for them, but the newly-weds were too
smart. Shortly before midnight, the
bride changed into her traveling dress
of navy blue taffeta, and she and the
groom slipped out of the side door in into
to into a waiting auto, piloted by the ever ever-reliable
