ELOPED FROM WATERTOWN -
The 16 year old daughter of LOUISE PEARE, who resides at No. 57 Factory Street, this city, has created another sensation in that vicinity by eloping with GEORGE PALMER, the baseball player. Miss PEARE was married about two years ago to Pete Tarriene, and they lived happily together for about six months, when the husband became jealous of his bride, for, as he claimed, she would frequent the skating rink and keep other company.
AT THE FAIR GROUNDS -
CHARLES L. CORY and CARRIE B. CLARK, of Black River, were married by the Rev. Mr. Townley in the presence of from ten to fifteen thousand spectators. They had applied for the honor and received five hundred dollars' worth of useful gifts...The bride was dressed in the steel-gray satin, the gift of Bush, Bull & Roth, which fitted her slender from to perfection. She is a bright looking girl of 18, with brown eyes and hair, and slightly pale face. She wore a brown hat trimmed with red velvet caught with a clasp and a bunch of feathers in front. Lace at the collar and wrists, and a handkerchief peeped out from under the bodice; garnet earrings, a brooch and a corsage bouquet of tuberoses completed her ornaments. The groom is a stalwart sun-browned young farmer of 21...He wore a shiny silk hat from Butterworths's, Prince Albert coat, light trousers and tan colored gloves. A boutonniere of tuberoses was on the lapel of his coat...(after the ceremony) Mr. and Mrs. Corey then posed under the arch and Wilson took their photographs, after which the crowd cheered. The party then entered the carriage and were driven to the Kirby House, where they held a reception and at 7:10 went away on their wedding trip to Niagar Falls, being furnished tickets by F. L. Baker, city ticket agent for the R. W. & O. Railway. Mr. CHANDLER C. CLARK, father of the bride, is a farming living at Black River. Corey has been working the farm of his brother-in-law, HOLLAND WHITNEY, at Black River, and will return there with his bride after the wedding trip. (Note: there is an extremely long list of gifts this couple received from merchants in the area; the fair closed on Friday, September 17th and believe the wedding occurred on the third day of the fair, which would have been September 16.)
