    • PRETTY WEDDING CEREMONY TOMORROW.
      At Baptist Church to Unite Miss Ruby YELVERTON and Mr. Geo. L. NORSWORTHY.

      Miss Ruby YELVERTON, the accomplished daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. YELVERTON, Jr., and Mr. George L. NORSWORTHY of Leesburg, will be united in the bonds of holy matrimony at the First Baptist Church at 1:30 pm tomorrow. The ceremony will be performed by Rev. R. L. Bonsteel, the new pastor-elect of the church, who comes from Pablo Beach especially for the occasion. Owing to the popularity of the bride and her family connections, it is safe to say that the church will be crowded to its capacity.

      Tonight Mr. and Mrs. YELVERTON will give a dinner party to the bridal party composed of the groom, his best man, Mr. Locke WILLIAMS of Leesburg; the bridesmaid, Miss Louise NORSWORTHY of Leesburg, a sister of the groom, the bride and her little sister and brother, who are to serve as flower bearers in the procession down the church aisle.

      After the ceremony the bride and groom will leave immediately for their future home in Leesburg, where Mr. NORSWORTHY is the agent for the Atlantic Const. Line Railway.

      It is understood that the bridal robes of the coming bride are particularly beautiful, as is also her going away gown. Her maid of honor, also will be gowned most artistically and becomingly for the occasion.
