Last Thursday your reporter was the happy participant in one of those interesting events that are embodied in the memory as fresh and fair “as the dew-drops hang near the well of life,” the occasion being the marriage of Mr. W. J. Hilburn to Miss Annie Hunt. Quite a number of young people of the village, your reporter among others, accompanied Mr. Hillburn to the parental home of the bride near Sonora. At three o’clock, the appointed hour, the manly form of the groom, with the fair bride leaning on his arm, entered, and was united in the holy bonds, by Rev. B. M. McGhee, in a solemn ceremony, after which refreshments were served, and the happy party returned and attended a most elegant reception at the residence of Mr. H., who had shown his appreciation of the trust confided to his care, in the home, tasteful and complete in all its appointment, that he had prepared as a surprise for his bride. The hours sped on rosy wings, and when the guests departed the universal wish was that through life might realities, rich with happiness, crown their days; that snowy-winged peace and perpetual prosperity bless them ever through a silver old age. Mr. Hillburn is one of our most prosperous merchants, and in his bride our society will find quite an acquisition.
