But our loss is a delightful gain to the happy groom, and for that reason, though we are loath to give her up from our circle, we wish them a long life of unalloyed happiness and bliss.  A Guest.

Stroud - Slough

At the residence of the bride's father on Island 35, by Esq. L. W. Hamilton, on Dec. 5th, 1888, Mr. J. E. Stroud and Miss Maggie M. Slough.  Owing to the feeble health of the bride's mother, the invitations were limited to the young friends of the bride.  This brought together as joyous and rosy-cheeked bevy of girls as can be found in Tipton or any other county.  There were present two other young couples -- Mr. N. L. Ellis and wife and Mr. G. W. Miller and wife.  It is just three weeks since the first named were married.  The of our best girls have gone in as many weeks; but they have only gone to keep house for three of our best young men, so you see we are losing nothing.
