The ceremony was performed at ? o’clock in the evening and was simple, neat and quiet, their being no invitations extended other than to the immediate family and the young couple’s intimate friends. Rev. M. Harry, pastor of the Baptist church at New Auburn, in an impressive manner, performed the marriage tie.

The groom is the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. T. D. Baldwin, of the Baldwin farm just east of town, and he needs no introduction to our people, for he has lived here for many years and has been one of the jolly good fellows of our social circle. He will have charge of the farm in the future as in the past.

The love and esteem in which this worthy couple is held was shown by the numerous and beautiful presents received both at New Auburn and in McVille since their arrival.
