Mr. and Mrs. W.W. Hubbell

Fifteen years ago last Tuesday Mr. and Mrs. W.W. Hubbell were united in marriage.  They had both been reared at Trenton, Mr. H. being a son of Hon. Geo. Hubbell and Mrs. H. a daughter of Mr. James Austin and during the fifteen years of their married life, as before they were married, they have occupied a prominent place in society- none more respected.  Having been blessed with the privilege of journeying happily together for fifteen years, it was a very suitable occasion to invite in a few of their friends and celebrate what is termed as their crystal wedding.  It was a happy occasion and long to be remembered by those present.  Mr. and Mrs. H. spared no effort to make the evening pleasant for their guests.  The evening was spent in social intercourse interspereced with some excellent instrumental music and singing.  Their own daughter being one of the players assited by the two Misses Austin, Miss Hubbell, sister of Mr. H., Mrs. O.M.
