|A charming home wedding took place in the afternoon of Wednesday December 28th, in Fillmore, when Mary Lena, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. S. Mills, was married to George M. Hyde of Rochester.
Miss Ethel Perry of Belfast was bridesmaid and Charles W. Hyde, brother of the groom, acted as best man. Rev. A. E. Worman of Fillmore officiated, the ring service being used. The bride stood under a bell of smilax and white carnations which opening at the end of the ceremony let fall a shower of rose petals. The Lohengrin and Mendelssohn wedding marches were played by Miss Martha Hyde, sister of the groom.
The bride was gowned in white lace over satin and carried a shower bouquet of lilies of the valley and bride's roses. The bridesmaid wore a gown of light blue crepe de chine.
A delightful luncheon was served, after which the bridal couple left for a short wedding trip. The esteem in which they are held was manifested by a large number of handsome and useful gifts.
They will take up residence in Rochester, where Mr. Hyde is connected with The T. H. Symington Co.
Among the out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. E. M. Hyde, Miss Martha and Charles Hyde of Corning; Mr. and Mrs. D. R. Clark and Mr. J.B. Deisher of Rochester: Mr William Tylee of Penn Yan; Misses Ethel and Edna Perry, Belfast and Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Colgrove of Nunda.
In the marriage of Miss Lena Mills Fillmore loses one of its most lovable useful and talented young ladies.
The entire Mills family are musical in a marked degree and in Miss Mills this musical gift amounts to absolute genius. Her great generosity in the use of her talents has been of untold value in the development of the social and educational life of this community.
Many years ago when "The Riverside Lyceum" placed the first lecture courses before the people of Fillmore, the "Mills Orchestra" furnished the music.
Many who read these lines may recall the night when Mary A. Livermore first appeared here. As she stepped to the front of the stage, she commented upon the music being the best she had heard that season.
From that day to this all of the churches, the school the lecture courses and the Wide Awake Club have each in turn been ably assisted by this family, in late years more particularly by Miss Mills and her mother.
If the music furnished at entertainments had been paid for in cold cash at lecture bureau prices it would have amounted well up in to the hundreds of dollars. As ingratitude is one of the most belittling traits, it is a pleasure to listen to the universal expression of appreciation regarding this matter heard up on on every side, and expressions of equal regret that we are to lose Miss Mills from our social world.
Only in part, however, we hope as Mr. and Mrs. Hyde intend to make Rochester their home, we hope to see them often in our midst where they will always be sure of a welcome.
