Special to The Warder
HYMENIAL - A very pleasing and happy
event took place at the residence of Mr.
Samuel Stinson, on Dec. the 23rd inst.,
at 2 o'clock p.m., it being the marriage
of his second daughter, Miss Jenny
Luella, to Mr. Isaac R. Laidley, of this
place. A large crowd of friends had
gathered to the amount of twenty-five
couple; and at the time appointed the
bride looked charming in a copper colored
silk dress trimmed with cream brocaded
satin, while silver sprays and orange blos-
soms adorned her head and neck. The
bride was assisted through the trying ordeal
by her cousin, Miss Addie Stinson,
who was dressed in a beautiful costume
suitable for the occasion, while Mr. Albert

cuit had tied the knot in his usual mild
way, the party sat down to the table

Peterboro, thence down into the lower
