Potter, son of Mr. William Potter, of this village, were united in marriage. The home was prettily decorated with evergreens and flowers and in the parlor a handsome corner arch was constructed, under which the bridal pair stood to receive the questions and give the answers which made the twain as one. The bride appeared in a handsome gown of blue serge, her hair trimmed with white roses and similar and carried in her hand a large bouquet of white roses. Everyone said, and truthfully, the young lady looked lovely. The bridesmaid was Miss Eva Barnard, of this village, and the best man Mr. Charles Brooks. The ceremony was performed by Rev.
