      "Wedding Bells on Kerlin Street.
      Marriage of James C. Culbert and Miss Louisa Evans of the South Ward.
      James C. Culbert and Miss Louisa Evans plighted their troth at the humeneal altar yesterday afternoon. The numptials were solumnized at the home of the bride, 128 Kerlin Street, by Presiding Elder J. P. Cronen, a former pastor, assisted by Rev. C.F. Turner, present pastor of Trinity M. E. Church. The
      guests comprised a limited number of relatives and immediate friends of the high contracting parties, who gathered in the handsomely decorated parlor at 2 o'clock. The bride entered leaning on the arm of the groom, and preceded by John and Miss Mary Evans, brother and sister, who performed the role of
      groomsman and bridesmaid. The bride was attired in an elegant brown silk dress, handsomely trimmed, the groom wearing the conventional black. The ceremony was very impressively performed by Revs. Mr. Crouch and Mr. Turner, and at the conclusion of the solemn rites the congratulations of all present
      were tendered to the bride and groom. The guests were then invited to the house next door, where the
      collation was spread. The dwelling has been vacant and was arranged expressly for the wedding banquet. A long table with pyramids of fruit, cream and other delicacies stretched across the dining room, around which the friends gathered. Mr. and Mrs. Culbert left at the conclustion of the banquet and
      took the 4:30 train for Washington, D.C., on their wedding tour. Upon their return they will take up their residence at 128 Kerlin Street. The bridal presents were numerous and many were beautiful and
      expensive. Everything about the wedding was performed with the utmost good taste, and the nuptials proved one of the most enjoyable social events of the season in the South Ward. Miss Louisa Evans, the bride, is a daughter of William F. Evans. She is a well known teacher of music and enjoys the confidence
      and esteem of a large circle of friends. The presence of Rev. Mr. Crouch was through a wish of the bride, expressed when he was stationed in this city. Mr. Culbert is also well known. He is employed at the store of William H. Eves, 1147 Edgmont Avenue."

      "What It Meant
      Just after the Culbert-Evans nuptials on Wednesday, a neighbor suspended a red flag from a window as a good omen for the young couple. The ensign waved over the cab as it rolled away with its load of wedded bliss, and the neighbors, particularly those on the opposite side of the street, became greatly exercised over the meaning of the flag. It continued to wave in the breezes of heaven until this morning, when it
      was taken down. Some of the jokers in the locality frightened the people by saying it was a smallpox signal, while in reality it was simply following a custom of our forefathers. The family who hung the flag out had their fun, however."
