MISER-EDGERTON--At the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Edgerton, nine miles southwest of Pawnee City, Mr. Charles E. Miser and Miss Emma Edgerton, Rev. H. E. Myers, officiating. The ceremony took place in the presence of quite a large number of relatives and friends. The bride was neatly and beautifully attired in a changeable blue, while the groom wore the conventional black. After congratulations and well wishes were said, the happy couple and guests partook of a very nicely prepared dinner. The manner in which it was consumed showed the appreciation of those present for delicious viands. A good-sized center table fairly groaned under the load of handsome and useful presents given, which speaks much of the esteem in which the young people are held by their many friends.

Mr. and Mrs. Miser are young people of wide acquaintance and are possessed of superior moral and intellectual characters and have the hearty good wishes of a host of friends as they launch on their voyage of life together.

Whittier's beautiful lines are appropriate:

I know not what the future
Of marvel or surprise
Assured alone that life and death
His mercy underlies.

And so beside the silent sea
I wait the muffled oar
No harm from Him can come to me
On ocean or on shore.

I know not where His islands lift
Their fronded palms in air;
I only know I cannot drift,
Beyond His love and care.
