A brilliant reception was
given on board the Colorado on
Thursday afternoon by the
officers, which was thoroughly
enjoyed by all present. These
entertainments are becoming more
and more popular. They are given
twice a month and are looked
forward to with great
anticipation by those fortunate
enough to possess invitations.
The promenade music was
furnished by the Navy Yard band
and the dancing music by
Conterno's orchestra. Among the
guests were Miss Babcock, Miss
Wood, of Elizabeth, N.J.; Miss
Bruce, Miss DePeu, of
Philadelphia; Miss Addie

Mr. Frank Reynolds, son of Judge
Reynolds, was married Thursday
evening to Miss Mary W. Myrick.
The wedding was very exclusive
and quiet, only the parents of
the contracting parties and the
officiating clergyman, Rev. Dr.
C.N. Sims, and wife being
present. This will be somewhat

would be the result of the happy
The marriage of Henry Fowler to
Miss Ellen Caroline Diller was
solemnized at St. Luke's
Episcopal Church, Clinton
Notwithstanding the quietness of
the affair the church was filled
with friends and relatives. The
ceremony was conducted by the
Rev. D.V.M. Johnson, D.D.,
according to the Episcopal
formula. The bride was attired
in a tasty traveling dress. Miss
Diller is the daughter of the
late Rev. Jacob W. Diller, D.D.,
whose recent death by the
Seawanhaka disaster is still
fresh in the minds of the
readers of the Eagle. Dr. Diller
was rector of the church in
which she was married, and it is
in consequence of the recent
bereavement that the wedding was
of a quiet nature.
