The rites of matrimony between Mr. Colwert George Pier to Miss Mary Emma Russell, were solemnized in Madison last Wednesday evening, De cember 10th, at 8 o’clock, at the home of the bride’s mother, Mrs. Carrie Estelle Russell, the Rev. Fr. Chapman of the Episcopal church of Oakfield, YVis., an old friend of the family, offic iating. At 8 o’clock the orchestra played the 'wedding march from Lohengrin, and the bridal party marched down from the upper rooms to the parlor iu the following order: Rev. Fr. Chapman. The groom and best man, Judd Alex ander, of this city. John Curtis, of YY’ausau, grooms man and Miss Guinevieve Mihills, of Fond du Lac, bridesmaid. Miss Helrua Eroding, of Uconomo woc, maid of honor. The bride, accompanied by her uncle, Mr. Wallace Clark, of Fond du Lac. The ceremony, according to the Episcopal ritual, was very impressive, Waliace Clark giving away the bride. The bride wore renaissance lace over silk and carried a white prayer book, a gift of the priest. The bridesmaids wore white chiffon over silk and carried pink bridesmaids' roses. The young ladies who assisted were Miss Elsie Fargo, of Lake Mills, and Miss Maude Conry, of Madison, who wore pink chiffon over silk, and carried pink carnations. The bride and the maids wore veils. All of the young ladies who took part iu the ceremony graduated with the bride at Grafton Hall, Fond du Lac. The ceremony was witnessed by rela tives and only a limited number of inti mate friends, after which followed a wedding supper. Mr. and Mrs. Pier departed later in the evening for points in Wisconsin, spending a few days in Milwaukee and Fond du Lac, and on Saturday evening they arrived in Wau sau and here they will make their home. They were the recipients of many valuable and useful presents, one to the bride, from her uncle, being a hand some piano. it is hardly necessary for the Pilot to introduce Colwert Pier, son of Mrs. George M. Pier, to this community, for he has grown from childhood to man hood here, and is known to everybody as a popular young man of business who has a bright future before him. He is superintendent of the Curtis & Yale Co.’s saw mill iu tlie town of Ber lin, and has tilled the position very suc cessfully for a number of years. The youug lady who has become his bride, is a daughter of Mrs. C. E Russell, of Madison ; she is an accomplished young lady ami was recently graduated from Grafton Hall, Fond du Lae. She is not an entire stranger to our people, having previously visited here, and has made many warm friends who are de lighted that she is to make this eit.v her future home. May happiness be con tinually with them Mrs. George M. Pier gave a reception and dancing party at the Club Pilose last evening in honor of Mr. ami Jkir, C overt Pier. The event had bee a the theme of conversation for the past ten days and was looked forward to with anticipations of much pleasure. The Club House was very handsomely dec orated for the occasion with palms and potted plants, and the electric lights in the different rooms were covered with colored shades. The reception party was stationed in the large parlor of the Club, and consisted of Mrs, George M. Pier, Mr. and Mrs. Colwert Pier, Mr. and Mrs. O. H Amunson, Mr. and Mrs. W. W .ClarK, M iss Eroding and Messrs. Jud. Alexander ami John Curtis. Dur ing the time of the reception, from 8 until 9:30 o’clock, Cone’s orchestra was stationed in the alcove south of the parlor and discoursed concert music. Notwithstanding the very heavy snow storm which had prevailed during the entire day, there were very few of the invited guests who remained at home, and there were over 300 present. After 930 o’clock dancing was the order of the evening. Refreshments were served in the basement from 11 o'clock. It was one of the most charming parties ever given in the city, and so thor oughly was it enjoyed by all who attended that dancing was kept up until the wee sma’ hours of morn. Among those who were present from away were Mr. and Mrs. VV. W. Clark, of Food du Lac; Miss Froding, of Ocon oraowoc; Dr. James A. Melndoe, of Rhinelander; Curtis Merrymaa, of Mar inette; Wm Stillman, of Oshkosh, and Thos Ryan, of Merrill.

An adjourned term of circuit court is now in progress, and it is quite likely that the criminal calendar will be cleaned up at this term. The first case called was that of the State vs. Albert James, charged with criminal assault, the complainant being Lillian Packard, a girl of fourteen years. Both parties live in the town of Plover, and the girl alleged that the crime was committed one day early last summer, while she was on her way from home to her sister’s house. She claimed to have met James on the road, and the latter carried her into a by-path, where the crime was committed. Neal Brown, assisting the district attorney, made the closing argument for the state on Friday afternoon, when the case was given to the jury. At ten o’clock that evening the foreman of the jury an nounced that a verdict hud„ been reached, and James was brought up from the county jail, where he has been confined all snmmer, and the verdict, which was for acquittal, read to him. It is needless to say that the judgement pleased him, and he went home to his wife and family a happy man, after his long confinement. Ella Feustmaker was granted an absolute divorce from her husband, W. H. Feustmaker. The complaint upon which the separation was granted was cruel and inhuman treatment. Henry Bopf, B. P. Nelson, Jas. Autritt and Andrew Nelson were granted naturalization papers and admitted to citizenship. The ease of the State vs. YVm. Yonker was next called, a jury having been secured Friday night. The crime charged against Yonker is assault with intent to kill and murder. It will be remembered that last spring Yonker, who lives east of Schofield, came to YVausau, tilled up on whiskey and went home early next morning. As lws entered the barn yard he found his wife engaged in milkiog a cow, and approaching her from behind, the neighbors allege, he struck her with his fist and as she was falling he kicked her, breaking a bone, injuring her so that her life was dispared of. The neighbors also allege that but for their interference he would have killed the woman. He was arrested and bound over for trial, secured bonds and was liberated. Shortly after he was arrested for beating his father-in-law and mak ing another assault on his wife. For this he served three months in the county jail. Arguments in the ease were made Monday afternoon and the jurj', after being out a few hours, found Yonker guilty of assualt with intent to do great bodily harm, but clearing him of the second count. An unexpected tiling happened when some of the witnesses were called, for they denied their story given at the preliminary hearing. The penalty for the crime of which Yonker was found guilty is from one to three years’ imprisonment and the time has not been set for the passing of sentence upon him. The woman whom he as saulted will perhaps never recover from her injuries. The case of the State vs. FrancesGot scbalk for murder was to have been taken up next but was postponed by action of the attorneys and will per haps he brought on for trial tomorrow. In lieu of this cae the action brought by Henry Amritmg against Aug. Zas trow is now being tried. The charge is assault with intent to do great bodily harm and the story of the case i* about as follows : Last August some boys, one of them it is claimed being a sou of Amelung were given a ride by a farmer while on their way to their home in the town of Wein. The farmer had several kegs of beer on the wagon ami while one of the boys engaged the farmer in conversation to divert his attention the other rolled one of the kegs out onto the road. After leaving the farmer they sold the keg to Zastrow, it is said, which caused the trouble. Amelung met Zastrow on the road one day later and id talking over the affair a quarrel arose and the latter struck Amelung a heavy blow over the bead with a shot gun, which he was carrying at the time. Instead of resorting to the Kilkenny Fair method of settling disputes Ame lung sought the law. The case will be finished today. Over coats —AT— - WEINFELD’S, The Birr Clothing House.
