City Married Danville After
After a separation of four
years following a decree of
a Greensboro, N. C-,
couple decided to again attempt
the journey through life as man
and wife, and for the second time
the bonds of holy wedlock were
tied. The ceremony was per-
formed in this city to-day,
the contracting parties being Mr.
Samuel G. Brown and Mrs-
en G. Brown. It is suffice to say
that the records show that the
is some younger than
her husband. Mr. Brown and
his divorced wife and bride
rived in the city early this morn-
from Greensboro. N. C. They
were unaccompanied and pro-
to the Burton Hotel. The
ceremony was performed at
o'clock in the parlors of the hotel
by Rev. W. R Laird pastor of
the First Presbyterian church.
