Ferrisf at 7 o’clock laBt night. The bride and groom were Miss Heneretta Hoffman and Dr. Elwood R. Brown, both of Sonth River. An effort was made to keep the wedding a secret, but the doctor, who is a prominent dentist in South River, is too popular to allow the couple to escape so easily ana by the time they reached South Amboy on their way home, they were met by friends, who had come to meet them, and were showered with rice. Dr. Brown and Miss Hoffman had been in New York yesterday and had started for South River, not having the slightest intention of gutting mar ried before they arrived. Cupid caused them to get on the wrong train, and instead of landing in South Amboy, they came in at the Stated street station here and could go further. Dr. Brown', who is a com of Mr. Dayton, decided to call up thedatter. While there Mr. Day a^ked the doctor when he was no be married. He replied '‘‘St these days. ” “Why not tonight?” said Mr.! ton. t. ’ nii --- - reply. \, Miss by, there. The bride and groom took train for Sonth Amboy and thenoe by trolley to Sonth Biver, where a warm reception awaited t them. Someone, on the inside, had telephoned to the doctor's home all abont the affair shortly after it happened. An interesting coincidence is that the doctor played an important part in a recent election at which the oiti zens of Sonth Biver decided to have ' electric lights in that town. The doctor favored the lights. Last night the lights were turned on for the first time. Of conrse -the town was illum inated to welcome Dr. Brown and his wife. Ladies Practice Bowling.
