                  A Society Event.

      An event which has been looked forward to with more that than ordinary interest since the announcement was made, was the wedding on Thursday evening last, of Miss Maud Sleeper and Mr. Edward Hazen, at St. Paul's Church, in this city. The impressive ceremony was performed at 9 o'clock in the presence of numerous friends who had assembled to witness the nuptials. The bride is a daughter of Col. [sic] [Capt.] and Mrs. C. B. Sleeper, one of the first families of Brainerd, and is a young lady of excellent qualities, having hosts of friends in and around the city. The groom is head book-keeper for the lumber firm of J. J. Howe & Co., a gentleman respected by all who have the pleasure of his acquaintance. The bridal party were escorted to the altar by Mr. Charles Hazen, of Minneapolis, a brother of the groom, and Mr. J. L. Smith, of Brainerd, a brother-in-law of the bride. The attendants were Dr. James L. Camp, of Brainerd, and Miss Lizzie Burchard, of Marshall, Minn.; Mr. H. H. Barber and Miss Jennie White, both of Brainerd. The bride was elegantly attired in white surab satin and orange blossoms.
      After the ceremonies at the altar were over, the invited guests repaired to Col. [sic] [Capt.] Sleeper's residence on Eighth street, where the usual congratulations and well wishes were offered, after which the assembled party was seated at the banquet tables on the lawn. The Brainerd band discoursed sweet music from the outside, which added to the enjoyment of the occasion. The grounds were lighted with locomotive head-lights and Chinese lanterns.
      The newly married twain left on the midnight train for Chicago, from which place they will go to Dixon, Ill., returning to Brainerd in about two weeks, where they will make their future home.
