Kept Their Secret Well.
HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR NEARLY
The H t-ilil has just learned
the particu urs of the marriage
of two well known yourtg people
of Waycross, which occurred on
Juue 17th, 1903, and which has
heen kept a profound secret urn
til the present. Tho wedding
occurred in Macon, and the
young people returned to their
respective homes here, not leav
ing a suspicion that they had
been united in the bonds of
matrimony. The young lady
went to Fitzgerald to visit her
aunt, and while in that city her
intended met her threre and the
two proceeded to Macon, where
the nuptial knot was tied.
The couple above referred to
are Mr. Ed. H. Crawley, the real
estate and insurance agent and
Miss Lula M. Sweat, the accom
plished daughter of Judge and
Mrs J. L. Sweat, and since the
marriage, which was unknown
to her parents, the bride has re
mained at her home on Albany
avenue, while Mr. Crawley re
mained at the home of his tnolh-
er only a few yards away. The an
nouncement of the wedding of
these well known young people,
both of whom were raised in
Waycross. will come aa a great
surprise to their many friends
and acquaintances. Mr. Crawley
left yesterday for Atlanta, nnd
consequently could not be seen
in regard to his future plane.
His bride is still at the home of
her parents on Albany avenue
