    • On Easter-day, March 28th, at the residence of C.R. King, by the Rev. Wm. Long, Eugene Morenus, of Cleveland, and Miss Maria E. VanBlarcom, of West Virginia, formerly of Patterson, N.J.

      A novel and pleasing episode was introduced into the midst of the ceremony. When the question was asked: "Who giveth this woman to be married to this man?", the mother of the bride stepped forward, and taking the bride's hand, said: "I give Maria to Eugene; and may the white-winged angel of peace hover over you both every hour in the future - every hour in earthly life, so that you may both be ready, when the gate shall open, to enter into that brighter and better state of existence beyond this earthly life."

      About twenty relatives and friends of the couple witnessed the ceremony, after which a beautiful feast was partaken of, and a pleasant time followed. [5]
