Mayor Stilwell has since been very industriously figuring on the probability of a divorce and making a guess at how long it will take the groom to catch up on the marriage record of the bride, although he fondly believes that this match will stick for keeps. - kbz

The ceremony was elaborate and included the ring service. The ring used was the wedding ring of the groom's grandmother, Mrs. Martha Hartman, and had been used at her wedding just 50 years ago. It was presented for the occasion by the groom's mother. At the conclusion of the ceremony the wedding party marched out to the glad strains of the Mendelssohn and were driven to the home of the bride's mother, on Grant avenue, where the bride changed her costume for a neat green traveling dress. Mr. and Mrs. Tomilinson then took the evening train for Indianapolis, whence they will proceed to Cincinnati and other points in Ohio. After a two weeks' trip they will return and make their home with the groom's mother on the corner of Washington and Market streets. The wedding was one of the most artistic and pretty ever seen in the city and reflected rare taste in design and execution. It united the fortunes of two most estimable and worthy young people. The bride is a pretty and popular young lady with many most admirable and lovable qualities. The groom is an energetic and thorough young business man and represents the second ward in the city council. He is capable and in all ways worthy the great prize he has won. THE JOURNAL takes pleasure in extending congratulations. - thanks so much for this great wedding announcement to Kim H
