Novel Experience of a South Carolina Couple

Greenville. Special. -- The passengers and crew of the Southern train between Columbia and Greenville were treated to an unusual attraction, being witnesses to the marriage of Miss Riggs of Orangeburg to Mr. Holloway of Chappells, which was solemnized while the train was speeding along between Helena and Silver Street at the rate of 45 miles an hour. Miss Riggs was en route to Abbeville to visit the family of her uncle there. Mr. Holloway and a couple of friends boarded the train at Prosperity, having arranged that the minister should get on at Newberry. As soon after leaving Newberry as possible the marriage took place and the happy folks left the train at Chappells, where they will reside.
