Mr. Milton I. Wheeler and Miss Bertha Markley, both of Hood River, were united in the bonds of matrimony at the residence of the groom's brother, Mr. C. J. Wheeler 657 Broadway, this city, Thursday evening, December 10, 1896, at 8 o'clock. Rev. J. L. Hershner, of Hood River, pronounced the happy pair husband and wife, using the brief but beautiful and impressive marriage form of the Congregational church. Only immediate relatives were present, who witnessed the ceremony in the front parlor, which was tastefully decorated with a choice selection of ferns. After a wedding tour of about ten days, Mr. and Mrs. Wheeler will return to Hood River, where they will reside.
