Meacham, of Cincinnati, occurred June 10th. Mr. Meacham and family are well known in this village also the bride made many friends in her long visit here last summer. She is a niece of Mr. T. S. and Miss Mary Meacham of this village. The following interesting story of the wedding is from the Cincinnati Commercial Tribune: "One of the prettiest weddings ever celebrated in Cincinnati was that which took place last night at the home of Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Meacham, when their daughter, Ruth, was united in marriage to Dr. Albert J. Bell. The magnificent home of the Meacham's, in Reading Road, made an ideal place for the ceremony. This was at 6 o'clock, and the guests present were limited to the relatives and the young friends of the bride and groom. An altar had been arranged in the music morn. This was formed of palms and a low, long screen, covered with white silk. Candles burning dimly and Easter lilies lent a churchly aspect to the scene. In the bridal procession were Dr. Bell and his best man, Mr. Robert Meacham; Standish and Eleanor Rogers, of Piqua; Miss Edith Meacham, the maid of honor, Miss Helen Buchwalter, the bridesmaids; Dr. Stansbery, of New York, and the Misses Elizabeth and Clarissa Crawford. The little Misses Crawford preceded the bride and scattered rose petals before her as she walked to the altar with her father. It is seldom that one sees a prettier bride. She is a young girl of more than ordinary beauty and with a character so lovely that it shines in her face. Her gown was of embroidered silk gauze trimmed with appliqué over a white peau de cygne. She carried a white prayer book, the gift of her Grandmother Douglas, and this she handed to the officiating minister, Dr. Charles F. Goss. Her bouquet was an immense shower of lilies of the valley and ferns. Miss Edith Meacham and Miss Buchwalter were gowned alike in white net trimmed with lace. They carried an immense shower of sweet peas. At the close of the ceremony a supper was served, and after 8 o'clock the reception began. Mrs. Meacham received in a gown of voile over white silk, panels in the skirt were of white panne silk with brocade roses, and point lace on the bodice completed the charming affect. Mrs. William Bell, the bridegroom's mother, was in soft gray silk trimmed with old Irish lace. The bridal table was an immense round one, and was trimmed with green ribbons and sweet peas. Here were seated with the bride and bridegroom the Misses Anna Blaine, Helen Cook, Helen Blair, Helen Wilson, Helen Buchwalter, Mary Hanna, Rob Meacham, Rob Buchwalter, Dudley Palmer, Philip Stansbery, Dr. Stansbery, Hart Stansbery, Charles Carey (Detroit), Dr. Maddox, James and George Douglass and Ewing Blaine. The display of presents in the billiard room was one of great magnificence. Remembrances came from all over the world and many of the pieces were of priceless value. An especial feature of the affair was the music. This was part of the Cincinnati Orchestra, and the bridal music was conducted by Hans Seitz, an intimate friend of the Meacham's. During the entire evening a concert was going on, and added to the already perfect appointments. Mr. and Mrs. Meacham have given Dr. and Mrs. Bell a handsome home in Mann Place, which they will occupy next fall. During the summer of the bride and bridegroom will live in the Meacham home, while Mr. and Mrs. Meacham and family will go to Michigan.
