The 1907 Naples Fair

    At 1:30 p. m. on Thursday the marriage of Horace Shepard and Miss Inez Remer, both of Naples, took place on the platform in front of the grand stand, the ceremony being performed by Rev. W. H. Haines, pastor of the Italy-Naples Baptist church. The bride was becomingly attired in a blue dress, with hat to match, while the groom wore the conventional black. At the close of the ceremony Secretary C. L. Lewis claimed the first kiss from the blushing bride. After congratulations, amid a shower of rice, the happy couple departed for the home of the groom’s parents, W. G. Shepard and wife, and they are spending their honeymoon in this village. Such an affair is not complete without music, and the band rallied to the occasion and played “Onward Christian Soldiers.” Mr. and Mrs. Shepard are well known and popular young people and they have the best wishes of their many friends for a happy and prosperous journey through life.


    Rev. W. H. Haines says that more people were present at the wedding than at any other at which he had ever had the pleasure of being the officiating clergyman.
