A Pretty Marriage.
Happy be the Bride the Sun Shines on.
Miss Kate Benham and Mr. Albert Strickland United in Marriage—A Large Assembly at the Church.

Clear Skies and a radiant sun never smiled on a happier couple than the one that stood at the marriage altar in this city last Tuesday morning.

Miss Kate Benham and Mr. Albert Strickland, two young people who are loved, esteemed and admired by a large circle of friends and acquaintances, stood in the presence of a great assembly and uttered the sacred vows that made them husband and wife.

The marriage occurred at the Methodist church at 11 o’clock Tuesday morning. Long before the ceremony began people commenced to pour into the building and continued until all the seating room was occupied.

[Article continues with a description of the church decorations and a list of wedding attendants.]

Miss Benham is the youngest daughter of Dr. and Mrs. W. I. Benham, and is a young lady of queenly grace and dignity. Her manners are pleasant and engaging and she numbers her friends by the score.

Mr. Strickland is a young business man of this city and is quite popular with all. He is in every way worthy of the great prize he has won.
