From 1888 "Hesperian" published in Gainesville, TX:
J. H. Pharr and Mrs. Elmira Mitchell of Thackerville, I. T., came to the city Thursday morning, purchased a marriage license, secured the official services of Judge Hayworth and hied away to the second story of the mammoth dry goods emporium of Lewin Bros. & Co. where, in the presence of a goodly number of ladies and gentlemen, most of whom were employees of the big dry goods firm of Lewin Bros. & Co., were joined together with the marital cords of wedlock by the judge.
(Sound like a news item and an advertisement were combined.)
