    Memo from Fran Jackson*

    Bowersox - Gosnell
    (Reported for the Democratic Advocate.)

    Mr. Jacob J. Bowersox, formerly of this city, now in charge of Winkelmann & Co's. laboratory, Baltimore, was married in Baltimore, on the afternoon of the 8th inst., to Miss Jennie M. Gosnell, of that city. The bridal party came to Westminster on the evening train to attend a reception given by the groom's parents. The severe winter showed that the overcoat and fur could still brave the howling elements, and by 8 o'clock the reception room was filled with invited guests. The reception proved to be a very enjoyable event indeed. The whole was performed in three acts. In the first act congratulations and well wishes were extended to the happy couples. In the second the strains of a waltz summoned those who trip the "light fantastic" and in an instant the floor was covered with gay dancers. Those who never tasted the pleasures of dancing watched the graceful movements, and looked at the pretty faces, which were really bewitching, and when brightened by coquettish smiles grow dangerously powerful. In the last act all acted, and that very vigorously. The festal board, laden with the caterer's art, was surrounded. What was done can well be surmised. Tongues and dishes rattled. The wee hours of the morning approached, and all departed, their hearts warmed with good feelings toward the newly-married couple, and filled with the wish that length of days, vigor of health and an overflowing measure of peace and prosperity may be granted unto them.
