Last Wednesday evening, Doc. 11, about thirty relatives and friends assembled in the elegant home of Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Goocher, in Orleans township, to witness the marriage of their only daughter, Carrie, to Mr. Hiram Harvey Knox, of Sheldon, Minn. At 8 p. m. to the strains of the wedding march rendered by Miss Haas, of Decorah, the bride and groom entered the room accompanied by Mr. Eugene Howard and Miss Margaret Haas. Taking their places beneath the decorated arch between the parlors. Rev. H. Williams, of Ridgeway, pronounced the happy words that made them one. After congratulations the bride and groom led the way to the dining room where the tables fairly groaned with the multitude of good things provided for the inner man. Their presents were numerous and costly, showing the regard in which these young people are held. A very pleasant evening was spent in social intercourse and at a late hour the guests departed wishing the happy pair bon voyage. ***
