out of the city and soon arrived at j
the spacious residence of A. II Black
where everything iu keeping with the 1
event in the most minute particular
was visible. It was the wedding
night of a lovable and accomplished
daughter and at a glance it was evi
dent that neither time, trouble, or ex- .
pense had been spared to make the
Occasion perfect in every detail. At

brightly lighted while the porches
and the long walk leading to the
drive was illuminated with Chinese ;
lanterns of various descriptions,
within the parlors the settiug-room

party, the great old fashioned fire
place with the burning l.»g* snapping
adding cheer to the enlivened spirits !
prevaiiant on such occasions.

and xiiss May Black brother and sis
ter of the bride entered the parlor to
the notes of M-ndeieshons Wedding :
March played by airs. J. W. Kriger, .
and in :t short ceremony were pro- j
nounced man and wife.
The bride wore a cream surah silk
t*n train, vail with wreath of orange
blossoms, the groom was attired in
the conventional black, xii«s nay

suit of cream albatroe.
After receiving congratulations the

and then came one of the most elab
orate suppers, passing the solids, the
fruits of the seasons in their time,
of the north and south either in clus
ter bunch or layer made a picture
pleasing as well as tempting.
At half past seven the west bound
passenger train stopped in front of
the house for Mr. and mis. Bent who
left for a short trip to the mountain
towns, they were accompanied t<* the
