Wayne Mettler and the words that made the couple one. After the ceremony, a sumptuous wedding dinner occurred, a most pleasant time was given the invited guests. Many beautiful and costly presents were given to the bride and groom. It is hardly necessary for us to say anything further of the occurrance; both of the contracting parties are so well and favorably known, yet a few words may not be out of place: The bride has been a prime favorite in all good Society and is endowed with plenty of graces and training to make a fine helpmate and wife that anyone should be proud of. The groom-well her is a fine young gentleman, industrious and sober, and that should be enough for anyone to succeed in this life.
