- WEDDING BELLS.
At St. Gregory's Catholic church in Newberry, on Tuesday morning at 6:00 o'clock a.m., Rev. Father GLASER united in marriage Mr. Charles BEAULIEU and Miss. Rose CHARRON. The church was tastefully decorated for the occasion and quite a large number of near friends and relatives were present to witness the impressive ceremonial detail, with which the Catholic church loves to surround the nuptials of its children.
The bride was charmingly attired in a castor colored broadcloth dress, and the groom in conventional black. They were attended by Miss Fannie GIGANDETTE and Mr. Wm. KERRIGAN of Grand Marais. After the ceremony a dainty wedding breakfast was served at the home of Mr. Matt SURRELL, brother-in-law of the groom.
The bride is one of the most popular and capable young ladies of Newberry. During her residence in that city her many attractive qualities have won for her the regard of a large circle of friends, who consider the groom from Grand Marais a very much to be congratulated young man.
The groom is one of the popular business men of Grand Marais, who has achieved success by keeping everlastingly at it, using good methods to-gether with a certain amount of gifted tact in that line, and to-day he possesses the best equipped livery and feed stable in Alger county. that he is a successful young man is evidenced by his good fortune in making this alliance.
The Herald joins the many friends of both the contracting parties in tendering good wishes, and trusts that their voyage o'er life's tempestuous sea will always be a happy one.

He sleeps in death;
A son and brother dear
Is numbered with the dead,
And the dark and silent grave
Is now his lowly bed.

'Tis said "God called him, be it so;
Our souls are tempest tossed;
Heaven is so far from earth below,
We mourn him as our lost.

For dark and wide across the land
Has death's dark shadow swept,
And many a broken household band
This year with tears hath kept.

We miss thee from our home, Johnnie,
We miss thee from thy place,
A shadow o'er our life is cast;
We miss the sunshine of thy face,

We miss thy kind, and willing hand,
Thy fond and earnest care.
Our home is dark without theee Johnnie,
We miss theee everywhere.
A FRIEND. (25 Feb 1892)
