On last Monday the home of Mr. J. L. Thain of Millburn was the scene of a happy gathering. The occasion of it was the marriage of his daughter Margaret Keith Thain and Mr. John T. Stewart, of Millburn but lately of Deerfield. The marriage ceremony was performed at noon, by Rev. Norman Millard, and was witnessed only by the members of the families and intimate relations and friends of the young couple. Mr. and Mrs. Stewart are Millburn bred, and have a very large circle of friends and relatives who wish them all good fortune in their future. After a wedding dinner and a brief inspection of the many presents that attested kind wishes to the couple, they took the 5:28 p.m. train for Chicago, and on Tuesday evening started for Kansas and other western points. They will return in about two weeks to Deerfield, their future home.
