    • MARRIED At the home of the bride's parents in Lacy Grove, at 8:30 P.M., Wednesday, June 26, 1895, Miss Jessie Polk to Mr. Lucius J. Abbey, Rev. W. F. Bartholomew officiating. Very handsome invitations had been issued for the occasion and a large company of selected guests were present at the ceremony. At the hour appointed an appropriate wedding march was played by Miss Maud Lowery, when the bridal party took their position surrounded by a display of laurel wreathes, and the reverberation of the music ceased, the solemn and impressive words of the minister bound them together. A costly display of presents were generously bestowed by loving friends and an elegant supper gave dignity and grandeur to the occasion. The bride is in possession of the all the qualifications of a noble young lady and needs no introduction as all know her especially from her quiet manner and gentle disposition, and she has also for the past two years been one of our most successful school teachers. Mr. Abbey is our county Recorder, a quiet, unassuming, Christian young man, strictly attentive to his official duties and in no way lacking those characteristics which constitute the elements of true manhood. The best wishes of friends go with them as they pass from beneath the parental roof, and enter in the practical reality of the establishment of a home of their own with the people of Sidney. Rev. D. A. Allen, pastor of the M. E. church at Hamburg, was present on the occasion and assisted Pastor Bartholomew in the performance of the marriage ceremony.
    • Prof. D. D. Darby, the penman and teacher, of Northboro, Iowa, is in attendance at the Normal Institute here this week. Mr. Darby has been secured by County Superintendent Simons to do the artistic lettering and manuscript work on the diplomas for the rural district graduates. The superior penwork done by the Prof. on these diplomas show him to be one among the finest penmen in the state of Iowa.
