"Most Interesting Couple"

June 18, 1908
Itawamba County News

"The most interesting couple which has ever come under our observation were married at the Methodist parsonage, Marietta, Miss., on Tuesday p.m., June 9, 1908.

The bride, Miss Lou Nabers, of near Kirkville, Miss., resembled a little queen. The bright face, calm expression, and self composure with which she seemed so richly endowed revealed to those who witnessed the solemn ceremony's character of the rarest type. She was interesting - being only 4 feet, 8 inches in height.

The groom, Mr. J. M. Burnett, though smaller than the bride, only measuring 4 feet, 2 inches, was possible no less interesting. He had that congenial look that manly expression so characteristic with all true Americans.

Their departure from this parsonage was made soon after the ceremony. They boarded the evening train at Baldwyn for Bristol, Tenn., a thriving city, where Mr. Burnett is engaged in the mercantile business.

May the pathway of this little couple be stewn with flowers of th emost fragrant kind and may their lives be so useful that they will ever merit the care of Him who doeth all things well."
