Hughes-Doughty

An interesting social event occurred last Wednesday at the residence of Mr. J.H. Doughty, three miles north of Reform, in the marriage of his daughter, Miss Virgie, to Mr. Arlie E. Hughes, of Fayette.

Mr. Hughes has recently graduated in the law department of the University of Alabama and received an appointment to the officers’ training camp at Fort Oglethorpe. He is a young man of excellent character and attainments.

The bride is from one of the best families in the County, and is a young lady of rare accomplishments.

The Alabamian, with numerous other friends of the happy couple, extends congratulations.
