On returning from Milwaukee Sunday where he spent the day with his mother, Dr. F. E. DONALDSON brought home with him some hardtack carefully wrapped up that his father took from his knapsack upon reaching home at the close of the civil war. It is in good state of preservation notwithstanding that it is over forty years old.


An event of more than usual interest took place Monday morning at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Barney CORCORAN, corner of Lawe and John streets, it being the marriage of their daughter Margaret to Henry MINKEBIGE, the nuptuials being celebrated on the 27th anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. CORCORAN's marriage. The ceremony was performed at Holy Cross church at 9 am by the Rev Father KORNBURST. Miss Rose CORCORAN of Marinette, a sister of the bride was bridesmaid, and Frank MINKEBIGE, the groom's brother, was best man. The bride carried an elegant prayer book; the gift of the sisters of Holy Cross school. Her wedding gown was a green traveling suit with picture hat to match in beaver and chinchilla. Mr. and Mrs. MINKEBIGE were the recipients of many beautiful and useful presents in cut glass, silverware, china, paintings, bric-a-brac, etc. a beautiful oil painting by Mrs. Charles F. MCCARTHY of Eldred, Florida, of the Madonna and child, framed in gold, was among the gifts. The ceremony was followed by a reception and wedding repast at the
CORCORAN home covers being laid for seventy-five. The rooms were decorated with orange leaves and Spanish moss and the tables with ferns and white chrysanthemums. The number and value of the wedding gifts and the great interest shown in the event by the presence of so many at the ceremony was convincing evidence of the esteem in which the young people are held in this community. Both are popular members in the social life of Kaukauna, having been born and raised here, and they start out on life's journey with bright hopes and the best wishes of their numerous friends. They left on a late afternoon train on a brief trip to Milwaukee and Fort Atkinson. At the latter city they will be guests of the groom's sister, Mrs. Geo. H. DREWSON. Returning they will be at home in the D. J. BROTHER's residence on Lawe street after December 15. At the depot when they left a crowd of friends baptized them with more than the usual amount of rice and saw that their baggage was appropriately decorated. The wedding was attended by the following relatives from abroad: Miss Rose CORCORAN, Marinette; Miss K. CORCORAN, Logansport; Mr. and Mrs. Christ CORCORAN, Reedsburg; Mr. and Mrs. Frank CORCORAN, and Mrs. and Mrs. William Kennedy, Milwaukee; Mrs. Mary KEENAN, Fond du Lac; Mrs. Mich. MONAHAN, Chicago, the Rev. Father DUSOLD of Glenmore.


Among the deer hunters who have returned form the northern part of the state are W. C. WENDT, P. J. HAYES and martin VanROY. Each brought a deer home with him. They report the hunters numerous but the deer not as plentiful as other years.
