The Marriage of  Harry D. Gibson  and
Miss Ida M. Strickler  Last Even- ing at Boggstown.
          For some time past the cards of invitation for the marriage of  Harry D. Gibson  to  Miss Ida M. Strickler,  have been issued requesting their many friends to witness their marriage on the evening of September 6th, 1881.  On last evening the friends, to the number of one hundred from Boggstown, the surrounding country and from this city, assembled at the elegant residence of the bride's father, Mr. George Strickler.  Everything being in readiness, at half past seven o'clock the happy pair made their appearance in the handsomely decorated parlors, preceded by  Rev. G. D. Marsh,  and followed by  Miss May Elliott  and  Mr. John Horst,  attendants.  The bride was dressed in dotted Swiss, trimmed in lace, made with overskirt and basque.  She wore orange flowers in her hair and at her belt, and had on six button kid gloves and shoes to match, and looked very charming.  The bridesmaid, Miss May Elliott, wore white tarlton, made princesse, trimmed with white satin, and with white satin overdress, and sustained her reputation as one of the loveliest looking girls in the State.  The bridegroom and "best man," were in the usual conventional style, and presented a very nobby appearance.
          After the ceremony, which was performed in a very impressive manner, and after receiving the congratulations of friends, all were invited out to supper, where everything that could please the palate was upon the table.  The bridal couple took the ten o'clock train for Peoria, Ill., last evening, where they will spend a few days visiting friends.  The presents were numerous and valuable, a partial list of which is as follows:
          An elegant gold inlaid card receiver from  Mr. and Mrs. Pleas. Griffey;  pair solid silver napkin rings from sisters of bride; solid silver berry spoon from  Miss May Elliott;  set of silver teaspoons from  Mr. and Mrs. Dr. J. F. Maddox;  pair silver napkin rings from  William McConnell;  one hundred dollars from  C. A. Gibson,  father of the bridegroom.
          Among these present were the following ladies and gentlemen from this city:  Mr. and Mrs. Pleas. Griffey;  Mr. and Mrs. Dr. Maddox;  Rev. G. D. Marsh,  wife and sister;  Harry Parsons  and  Miss Mollie Webb;  D. L. Wilson  and  Miss Edith Sims,  of Columbus;  E. G. Lohmeyer  and  Miss Carrie Levinson;  Misses Ella Roberts  and  Emma Wray.
