      Miss. Pearl Rosser, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. J. C. Rosser, formerly of this city, graduated at the St. Joseph's Academy, St. Paul, at the commencement exercises there last week. (Brainerd Dispatch, 12 June 1896, p. 4, c. 5)

                           MARRIED.
                              _____

      The many friends of Miss Pearl Rosser in this city, will be interested in the following notice of her marriage taken from the Duluth News Tribune of the 9th inst:
      In the presence of their parents and a few of their intimate friends Miss Pearl Rosser and James C. Geggie were quietly married in St. Paul's Episcopal church by the rector, Rev. A. W. Ryan, at 8:45 o'clock last night. The arrangements for the marriage in all details were simplicity itself. It was the wish that the event should be shorn of the circumstance and pomp that are sometimes a feature when a prominent and popular couple go to the altar. There was a certain informality about everything, which was pleasing and which harmonized beautifully with the simple impressiveness of the marriage ceremony. The relatives and friends of the bride and groom arrived at the church about 8:30 o'clock, and a few moments later Rev. Ryan arrived. Promptly at 8:45 o'clock, the bride and groom walked down the aisle of the church to the chancel, and the words were spoken that made them man and wife. Miss Rosser was dressed in a tailor-made suit of brown material and hat, while Mr. Geggie wore an afternoon frock coat and dark trousers. The groom was smiling and the bride radiant. After the ceremony congratulations were spoken, and Mr. and Mrs. Geggie went direct to their future home, at 1125 Second street east, which had previously been prepared for their reception. Among those present at the wedding were Col. and Mrs. Geggie, Arthur and Iona Geggie, Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Spencer, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Dight, Watson Moore, Mrs. and Miss Loudon, Mrs. J. C. Rosser and Misses Jean and Martha Rosser and Miss Sims of Mineapolis. James C. Geggie holds a responsible place with the grain firm of Spencer, Moore & Co.—News Tribune.
