At the home of Mr. and Mrs. George Miller, near Bison, S. D., on Wednesday, Dec. 8, occurred the marriage of their niece, Eugenia McMillan to Earl McKinstry, the ceremony being performed by Judge D. R. Perkins, a friend of the families.
The home was very prettily decorated for the occasion with evergreen boughs and ribbon festoonings of white and pink. At 11:30 the bridal party entered; Misses Alice McKinstry and Ada Lincoln acting as bridesmaids, and Walter and Hoar Harry Miller was groomsmen. The bride was given away by her uncle, George Miller, after which Judge Perkins in his own original way pronounced the words which united two happy hearts for life. Then followed hearty congratulations and good wishes after which the assembled guests were seated to a bountiful wedding dinner to which they did ample justice.
The closest relations and friends of the contracting parties were present.
Earl has been in the stockraising business here for the past seven years and is very favorably known by a large circle of friends. The bride is a very estimable young lady and the best wishes of the Courier and a host of friends goes with them.
Amid showers of rice and old shoes, the bridal party left for Hettinger, where they took the east-bound train for Big Lake, Minnesota, to visit the bride’s father and also attend her sister’s wedding. from there they go to Cresco Iowa, and other points expecting to return to Bison about the first of January, where they will make their future home.—Bison, (S. D.) Courier.
