BLACKWELL-VAN DYKE: A home wedding thus pretty in every sense of the word was solemnized in the presence of about fifty invited guests, at the hospitable home of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Van Dyke, of Woodsville vicinity, on Wednesday evening last, when their daughter, Eva B., was united in holy bonds of matrimony to James L. Blackwell, of Skillman, N. J.

The spacious parlors were beautifully decorated with evergreen. The bride was attired in white cashmere, trimmed with taffeta silk and lace, and ornamented with smilax and pinks.

The ceremony was performed by Rev. Wm. Allen, Jr., pastor of the Pennington Presbyterian church. The ushers were Chas. Stout and Elwood Blackwell. After the ceremony an elaborate repast was served, which all greatly enjoyed. The bride received many handsome and useful presents.
