The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Dr. Horace Cady Wildon, assisted by the Rev. Dr. Charles W. Welch.

The chancel was banked with palms and ferns and white chrysanthemums. The pews for the families were marked with white standards topped with white chrysanthemums. The musical program was in charge of Miss Mary Stuart, organist of the church, assisted by Mr. Karl Schmidt on the violincello and Mrs. J. T. Carlton on the harp. Mrs. J.

Miss Joan Castleman was her sister's maid of honor and Misses Lillian Manger and Isabelle Manger, cousins of the bride from Pelham Manor, N.Y. were the bridesmaids.

The maid of honor wore a blue moire taffeta gown made on princess lines with a long flowing skirt and a bateau neckline.

The short sleeves were edged in silver. A silver girdle fell into a short train. On her head she wore a Juliet cap of silver, and carried a French bouquet of pink roses, forget-me-nots and lilies of the valley.

The bridesmaids wore dresses of dusty pink taffeta, with full skirts and short violet velvet jackets, and carried small violet muffs to which were fastened bouquets. They wore small violet velvet hats.

The bride's mother wore a French model in black velvet, with the upper part of gold sequins, and hip length black velvet cape. Her hat of black velvet was turned up at the back with two ostrich tips shot with gold. She wore a shoulder bouquet of yellow orchids.

The bridegroom's mother wore a sapphire blue velvet gown with a hat to match and a shoulder bouquet of gardenias.

Mrs. Julius manger wore a brown silk gown with pink lame sleeves and a hat to match, with a shoulder bouquet of orchids.

Mrs. George Staunton Tiffany wore a brown lame gown with brown velvet hat and sable furs.

The ceremony was followed by a reception at the Pendennis Club given by the bride's aunt, Mrs. Julius Manger and Mr. manger as a wedding present to the young couple. The reception was held in the main dining room. The guests were received at one end of the room before the fireplace, which was banked with green foliage and white chrysanthemums. At the other end of the room was the buffet table? ? which had as its central ornament the five tiered wedding cake, with a miniature bride and groom on the top. The bride cut the first slice of the cake before sitting down at the bridal table.

The bridal table which was placed in the Independence room was decorated in white and silver.

Fire Follows Blast In J. H. Scales Home

Explosion Heard As Flames Burst From Mocking Bird Valley Residence

Residents of Mocking Bird Valley moved pianos, carpets, bric-a-brac and heavy furniture at 4:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon when the home of Joseph H. Scales, treasure of the Belnap Hardware & Manufacturing Company, caught fire on the third floor and burned slowly downward. The structure of frame and stucco was destroyed. The loss was $25,000. partly covered by insurance. Several pieces of furniture on the second floor, prized as heirlooms, and nearly all the personal belongings of Mr. and Mrs. Scales were destroyed.

Mrs. Scales, her daughter, Miss Evelyn Scales, and her son, Edward Scales, 10 years old, were in the house at the time the fire was discovered. A sound like an explosion was heard, and, as Mrs. Scales began an investigation, neighbors ran in and reported that the third floor of the house was aflame. Mrs. Walter S. Clark, who lives a short distance away, called the Louisville Fire Department.

Through error the firemen took the wrong road and arrived after the structure was doomed. They prevented the spread of the fire to other buildings.

Mr. and Mrs. Stuart Duncan, Mr. and Mrs. Clark and many other neighbors, before the fire descended to the first floor, ran in and out of the building, carrying? ? out household effects and assisting servants in carrying out heavy furniture.

Although he had never driven an automobile before, little Edward Scales saved the automobile of his sister, Miss Evelyn Scales. The automobile was parked alongside of the house, and the flames were beginning to communicate to the top when he got in and drove it to safety.

Members of the Scales family were unable to account for the origin of the blaze. There was no fire in the furnace and no one was upstairs at the time.

Special to The Tribune

Jonesboro, Dec. 19. -- The marriage of Mr. Joseph Hugh Scales, of Newbern, Va., to Miss Elizabeth Wiley Reeves, has been the event of the past week. The wedding took place in the M. E. Church, South, at 3 o.clock on Tuesday afternoon, and was largely attended. The spacious church was inadequate to accommodate the throng which assembled. The church was beautifully and most appropriately decorated with evergreens and flowers which added much to the cheer of the occasion. Rev. Mr. French, who pronounced the marital vows, was stationed within the altar rail, and met the members of the bridal party as they approached the chancel.

The contracting parties were preceded by the attending couples who arranged themselves in a semi-circle in front of the altar. The wedding march of Mendelsohn was played by Prof. C. E. Dilworth.

Mr. Scales, accompanied by his best man, Mr. William P. Reeves, brother of the bride; and the bride, accompanied by her father, passed through the aisles heading to the altar.

The bride wore green satin and novelty brown, which was universally admired. She carried a beautiful bouquet of bride's roses. The maid of honor was arrayed in gray and violet with brown fur trimmings, and carried Marschal Neil roses. The attendants were Miss Katherine Deaderick, of Jonesboro, as maid of honor, and as bridesmaids Miss Kathleen, sister of the bride, Miss Neil Hoss, Jonesboro; Miss Bessie Taylor, Bristol; Miss Alva Watson, Newbern, Va. The gentlemen attendants were R. L. Jordan, Radford, Va; W. H. Pepper, Rural Retreat, Va; Tom A. Davis, Knoxville.

Those acting as ushers were Harvey Dosser, Morristown; E. E. Wiley, H. H. Kirkpatrick and Fred Gresham, Jonesboro. Immediately after the wedding Mr. and Mrs. Scales left for Washington City where they will spend a few days, after which they will be at home to their friends at Newbern, Va. The young lady whom Mr. Scales has claimed as his bride is from one of the representative families of East Tennessee. She is also popular and highly esteemed by all who know her. Mr. Scales is one of Virginia's promising young men. He is at present traveling salesman for a leading hardware establishment of Louisville, Ky., and takes high rank as a business manager.
