Some Quccfr Little Stories Concerning:
The sexton of one of the New York
fashionable churches boasts of having Ve-
eeived six hundred and odd dollars in
wedding fees since Easter,
In New York the other day a bride's
mother had the ushers move two ladies
well known in society from one pew to another.
The ladies naturally were indignant
and left the church. Airs. Grundy
has a great deal to say about this affair that
At a wedding reception the other day a
check for $25,000, signed hy the father of
the bride, was among the presents displayed.
The cashier of the bank upon
which the chunk was drawn happened to
be present, and he was disagreeable
enough to toll the gentlemen in the wine
room that the bride's father had not half
that amount of money to his credit at the
AVh en Queen Victoria entered London
as a bride she wore a white bonnet, which
conformed with the Parisian style of the
day. To every new daughter-in-law she
has presented a of this white
bonnet and the piece of headgear has been
worn by every one of them upon their
of the metropolis. The
of style may be fancied and it is saul
that all the daughters-in-law have looked
as miserable as widows riding in funeral
processions when obliged to don the unbecoming
There is a curious story about the refusal
of a wealthy New Yorker to pay for
certain bridal presents ordered hy his wife.
It seems that the wife ordered of a silver
ware establishment $1,000 worth of presents,
which were received and duly admired
by the bride. But when the giver's
hu band received the bill he called at the
jeweler's and said that the momey must
be collected, if at all, from the bridegroom.
The silversmith applied to the bride for
the return of the presents, but she refused
to restore them, and the purchaser has
been sued for the value of the goods The
strangest part of the affair is the husband's
reasons for refusing to pay bis wife's bill.
It leaked out that he was once jilted by
the bride upon whose table he declines to
pile a thousand dollars' worth of precious
A bride who was married at her father's
farm house in Harford county, Md,, last
week, wore wild flowers at the throat
and in the hair. The parlor where the
ceremony was performed was decorated
with flowers only arbutus, violets, dogtooth
violets and spring beauties. In contrast
was a certain wedding reception in
New York whereat only wax flowers were
used. " Mail and Express" of that city
regrets that the flowers were melted by
the heated atmosphere of the room and
that several handsome toilets were ruined.
In New York last week yellow cowslips,
with pansies and Russian violets, were
used at a wedding; in Oswego, New York,
some lovely' bridal bunches were of
buds and lilies, and at another wedding
mentioned in an exchange four bridesmaids
carried hand bunches of lilacs and
and four bunches of lilacs
and Duchess do Brabant roses.
A very novel w e lding occurred at Somerset,
Indiana, one day last week. It so hap
pened, that when a young couple from the
country followed Hymen's torch into the
village they were unable to find either a
preacher or a Justice of the Peace. The
swain was much excited because of the
bit of bad luck and in his agony of soul
asked advice of a waggish stranger whom
he met. The wag, preserving a grave demeanor,
told the country couple that the
only official, besides tlie 'Squire in the
village was the postmaster and told them
to request that person to perlorm the
ceremony. Since the days of Dogberry a
number of oflicial positions seem to. have
been set aside for the benefit of thatancient
worthy's imitators. Bearing this in mind
one may understand how theSomerset postmaster
could listen to the bridegroom's
proposition with ears pricked forward to
their full length. Certain it is, if the
Chicago "Times" is a truthful chronicler,
that the postmaster performed the ceremony.
He looked over his oflicial instructions
and failing to find any ixfttal
regulation in the matter of marriage, went
through the form used by Justices, of the
Peace. His concluding words were ; "You
are married, sir and madam, according to
the postoflice laws of the United' Statesof
