Willy," We Will "Miss You."
Yesterday afternoon Mr.
William Morton Meredith, one of the Journal news
room typos, procured the services of Rev. C.W.
Miller, of Roberts Chapel, for a very solemn
service. Mr. Knefler, Clerk of the Court of
Hymen, had issued a paper bearing a broad seal,
which document William triumphantly declared
should terminate his career. Those not "up
to snuff" thought he intended to commit
suicide, but their suspicions were groundless.
All fears of his safety were dispelled yesterday
evening by the receipt of intelligence that he
was married at five o'clock, by the minister
named above, to Miss Emma A. Shellenberger, of
this city. Accompanying the news was a large and
beautiful cake, inscribed "To the Journal
Boys," from Mrs. W.M.M." The cake was
cut into "takes," and each fellow took
his piece in the turn indicated by the figure he
had drawn in "pulling." After the cake
was disposed of, three rousing cheers - but
"nary" tiger - were given for William
and his handsome bride, and the kindest of wishes
expressed for the young couple for success and
happiness in life.
