A Wilson Couple Married

The marriage of Chris. Roehrborn, a prominent farmer of the town of Wilson, and Mrs. Mary Wachsmuth also of Wilson, took place on Wednesday.

A chicken dinner was served from six to eight in the evening, and there were nearly one hundred guests present. A dance followed at the groom's large barn, and the large company made merry until the gray of the early dawning reminded many of them that it was nearly milking time.

The happy couple were reminded that they had friends by numerous gifts and well wishes.
