Van Houten, of Eugene City, Lane county, Oregon.  The bride in this instance came from her native home, a distance of thirty-one hundred miles, to Kansas City, to meet her affianced husband, with whom she became acquainted during a brief visit to Missouri in 1879.  She is pre-eminently a western lady, being the daughter of Eugene Skinner, the founder of Eugene City, and one of the first white children born in what now constitutes Lane county.  The groom is well known to be one of Cameron’s best and most popular citizens, and his many friends join the Vindicator in extending congratulations.
