As announced, the nuptials of Mr. Conrad Heck and Miss Annie Richert, eldest daughter of John Richert, of the firm of Fischer &Richert, occurred at the Lutheran church at 8 o'clock last evening, the ceremony being performed in a beautifully impressive manner by Rev. H. C. Fack.

The edifice was filled with the friends of the bride and groom. The groom is an industrious and much respected wagon-maker in the employ of Messrs, Fischer & Richert, and no young man has a greater number of personal friends and well-wishers. All his friends are congratulating him in the choice of so accomplished a wife. The bride is an accomplished and charming young lady, a great favorite, and the HERALD and their host of friends wish them much happiness.
