Brevator J.CREECH, of this city, and Miss Mary RICHARDS, daughter of Mr. & Mrs. John E. RICHARDS, of Clark township, were married Weds. afternoon at 2:00 in the parlors of the Laclede Hotel, St. Louis, byRev. Taylor Bernard, pastor of the Raymond Place Presbyterian Church. The ceremony was witnessed by John BREVATOR and Miss Kate BREVATOR of Brevator Station; Louis WULF, of Troy and Clerk John H. MURPHY, of the St. Louis Court of Appeals. The marriage was a surprise and we believe there were parental objections, mainly on account of the youth of the contracting parties. Young CREECH, who has just attained his majority, went to St.Louis Tuesday and made arrangements for the marriage and his fiance followed arriving there at 11:0- Weds., where he met her at the station. The young people returned Weds. evening leaving the train at Moscow Mills and going to the home of the bride's parents, and have doubtless been accorded full parental forgiveness........
