Young  Couple  Plan  Marriage  Quietly
in  Accordance  with  Recent  Practice  in  Shelbyville
--  Few  Have  Been  Told  the  Plans.
(From Wednesday's Daily.)
          A surprise wedding has been arranged between  Jesse Epperson  and  Miss Winifred Burkett, at the home of  Mrs. W. W. Hagen, 40 west Pennsylvania street tomorrow night.  The ceremony will be performed by the Rev. G. W. Winfrey  who lives at that place also.  Only a few of the intimate friends of the parties have been told of the intended wedding, the plan being to keep the matter a secret until after the ceremony had been performed.  Mrs. Ora Burkett  of Chicago arrived in the city a few days ago ostensibly the guest of her sister Mrs. Hagens, and it is understood that she came here to attend the wedding of her daughter Winifred.
