Yesterday’s Marriage.

Yesterday afternoon, at the residence of the bride’s father, Miss Lalla Collins and Mr. James W. Knight were united in marriage. Rev. H. J. Adams performed the ceremony in a beautifully impressive manner.

Only the immediate relatives and a few friends of the contracting parties witnessed the marriage. After the ceremony the guests were invited into the dining-room, where a most sumptuous repast was spread. A most pleasant time was spent and numerous were the congratulations and good wishes showered upon the happy pair.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. Martin Collins, one of our esteemed citizens, and is a most estimable young lady, possessing many fine qualities of mind and heart. She is worthy the love of any man and in winning Mr. Knight is to be sincerely congratulated. The groom is the junior member of the firm of A. Knight and Son, hardware merchants, of this city. He is a young man of sterling worth, both socially and in a business way. He, like his bride, was born and reared in this city, where he numbers his friends by the score. All in all, the marriage was a most happy one.
