STANTON: (Special Correspondence)

On Thursday afternoon last Jennie Dempster and Robert Scott were united
in marriage at the residence of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John
Dempster. A large number of relatives and friends were present to
witness the ceremony. Rev. J. Wilson, of the M.E. church, of Merrill,
officiated. The bride and groom received a large number of presents,
many of which were selected with a view of use rather than ornament.
Both of these young people have spent their entire lives in this
locality and are noted for their habits of industry and thrift. They
will be missed by the young people of the neighborhood. They will start
housekeeping in a few days on the farm secured by the groom located a
short distance east of Neptune. Their many friends unite in wishing
them a happy and prosperous voyage through life.
