Bogart, brother of the bride.  At the conclusion of the ceremony refreshments were served to the guests, and the future happiness of the bridal pair was toasted with great heartiness.  The happy pair were then driven to the F. T. R. station and took the 1.59 p.m. train for Detroit and other western points.  The presents were handsome and costly and spoke of the high esteem in which Mr. And Mrs. Daly are held.  On their return they well reside for the winter at the residence at present occupied by the bride’s mother.  THE BEAVER  joins in wishing the happy couple a prosperous life.

BALFOUR - DAVIS - A very pretty wedding took place Wednesday morning, June 14th, at 11 o’clock at the farm residence of Samuel Balfour, west of Hannah, when Miss Maud Balfour, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Balfour, was united in marriage to Mr. Fred. R. Davis, eldest son of the late M.V. Davis, of Adolphustown.  The ceremony was conducted by Rev. M. Irwine, of Osnabrock.  The parlor, where the ceremony took place was profusely decorated with lilacs and potted plants and made an impressive picture as the young couple took the solemn vow.  After the ceremony a veritable wedding banquet was partaken of, the guests present being the immediate relatives of the contracting parties.  The estheable young bride needs no introduction as she has resided in this vicinity since girlhood, and is beloved by all for her kind disposition and rare womanly qualities. The groom is well and favorably known as an industrious and progressive young man and has the esteem of all.  Many and valuable presents testify to the popularity of the bride  and groom.  They left via the Great Northern for a sojourn at Winnipeg, after which they will be at home on their farm near the new end town.  Tho’ the day was cloudy we noticed that each cloud had its silver lining, and with the ample supply of rice distributed at the depot, we feel safe in predicting for their matrimonial bark, so auspiciously launched, a safe and storm-free voyage.  Congratulations. - Hannah, North Dakota, Press
