A very pleasing event took place Wednesday evening, 10 Jul 1901, at the residence of the bride's parents in this town when Miss 
Lena Henderson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alex. Henderson, and Herbert W. Clark, dress goods salesman in Northway, Anderson & Falls', were united in marriage.

Promptly at six o'clock the bride came in leaning upon her father's arm. She was ably supported by her sister, Miss Ada Henderson. Miss Ethel Clark was maid of honor, and Mr. W. E. Maxwell of Ridgetown acted as best man.

The bride was tastefully attired in white organdie trimmed with satin and lace, and carried a boquet of white roses.

The brief, simple, yet impressive marriage service was read  and the two were made one by the Rev. D. W. Snider, pastor of the Methodist church.

The parlor was beautifully decorated, the ceremony being performed under a magnificent floral arch.

The bridal party and guests repairing to the lawn, where flags and bunting were much in evidence, ample justice was done to a beautiful repast.

Mr. and Mrs. Clark left on the evening train for St. Thomas, thence to Syracuse, N.Y. 

At the station the party was met by a crows of friends and, the train being fortunately about half an hour late, nought that mischievous ingenuity could devise, was left undone.
