WEDDING BELLS - Mr. Henry HEIDBRINK and Miss Maggie FOREST were united in marriage, at the residence of the bride's parents on Belew's Creek, this county, on Wednesday evening, September 26, 1883, at 7 o'clock.

Everything was tastefully arranged for the occasion, without any extravagant show. At the appointed hour the bridal party entered the parlor, led by Rev. FRAZIER. The bride and groom preceded by Miss Maud McLEAN and Mr. Harry DAHL, the bride's brother, as best man.

Friends and relatives mingled together with delightful informality. Of course, there was the usual array of pretty country girls which add vivacity to the naturally joyous occasion.

The wedding was indeed a brilliant one, and the newly-married pair have a truly bright future before them. Long life, happiness and prosperity is the wish of their many friends. The happy couple will take up their abode two miles east of the brides parents' residence, near Glade Chapel. A Guest.
