Webber at tbe Central Chareh-The
Tbe Central Presbyterian church was
last evening the scene of one of the most
brilliant weddings ever solemnized in
Rock Island. It was an event, in the
higher circles of social life in the three
cities, and it witnessed the linking togeth
er in life's truest and holiest bonds two
of Rock Is!and and Davenport's most es
timable young people. The bride, Miss
Mary E. Webber, daughter of Mrs. E. S.
Webber, who has grown to woman's es
tate in Rock Island, is much admired be
cause of ber loveliness and culture,
while the groom, Mr. Timothy A.
Murphy, only son of ex-Congressman
J. II. Murphy, of Davenport, has
been reared on the opposite side of the
river, and is one of the brightest and
most popular young men of that city, an
honor to tbe legal profession; the union
of two such might indeed be looked upon,
as it really was, as a most joyous occa
Tbe spacious interior of the Central
church had been gorgeously, yet very
appropriately decorated under the di
rection of Mr. M. Y. Cady, of Moline.
Stretching the entire width of the
front part of the church, and cons
cealing nearly all of the immense organ.
was a solid wall of golden rod, yaried
only by delicate white flowers.wbile at tbe
entrance of each pew was a vase of gol

leaning upon the arm of her brother, Mr.
C. C. Webber, of Minneapolis.
The groom accompanied by his
best man, Mr. W. P. Kiser of
Davenport, awaited the arrival of his
bride in tbe front part part of the church
and led ber before Rev. A. B. Meldrum,
the others forming a half circle and
standing while the ceremony was per
formed. The service used by Mr. Mel
drum was the form of the Episcopal
church, the organ playing in a sweet un
dertone while it was being read, adds
ing to the impressiveness of the scene.
After the ceremony tbe bridal party
and guests were driven to tbe home of
the bride's mother on Elm street, where
a reception was held. A collation which
had been prepared by Kinzie was served
by Terrell's corps, and Mr. and Mrs. Mur
phy weie recipients of some of the most
elegant presents that have been seen in
tbe three cities.
Tbe bride wore a dress of white faille
with orange blossoms, wbile the maid of
honor and bride's maids were clad in tbe
bridal colors bite and yellow niouseline
de soire, the costumes being richly made
of imported material.
Mr. and Mrs. Murphy took the mid
night train for the east tor a wedding
trip occupying about three weeks, when
they will return to Rock Island, which
will be their home for the winter, at
Aiden Benedict's Triumph.

Dr. J. D. Rutherford, the veterinary
surgeon, bas recently discovered a case
of glanders in a pair of horses owned by
Wm. O'Brien on Fifth avenue. The
doctor at once reported the case to the
state board of live stock commissioners
who sent Dr. Casewell, state veterinary
surgeon, to Rock Island who examined
the horses, pronounced Dr. Rutherford's
diagnosis correct and ordered the horses
shot. He also put a quarantine of ninety
days on Uartman'a pasture on Big Island,
where the diseased horses had been and
where thirty-two horses are now held un

ease baa been contracted by others. Dr.
