"A very pleasant wedding took place at the residence of Mr. And Mrs. A. J. Robertson on Saturday afternoon last at which time their youngest daughter, Miss Kate, was united in marriage to Mr. R. M. Slaight, Rev. G. H. Hubbard, of Honey Creek, officiating. Mr. Slaight has rented and furnished the house belonging to E. B. Adams, on West Water street, and the bridal pair will go at once to housekeeping. If the good wishes of a host of friends be granted, a long and happy life will assuredly be theirs."
