Again the marriage bells have sung out, the orange blossoms have bloomed.  Our esteemed friend J. E.

Crews of Mound township, was married our friend Mr. J. E. Crowder and Miss Bettie Crews an accomplished young lady and one of  the successful school teachers of our county.  To say the affair was elegant, it is but necessary to mention the contracting parties.  Mr. Crowder is one of our best teachers and to add to congeniality of the match his bride is also a teacher of recognized ability a proved success.  All the neighbors were invited and certainly the esteem in which they are held is attested by the fact that the house was crowded with the presence of 75 friends.  Luther Crews and Ereu Meredith officiated as waiters.  The ceremony was performed by Rev. Pike of Archie the brides pastor.  The bride was dressed in a beautiful dress of white wool trimmed in lace and silver cord and wore real orange blossoms sent all the way from California by her brother which made a very beautiful and suggestive appearance.  The groom was dressed in conventional black and it was a grand sight to see amidst such pleasant surroundings and assume a relation fraught with the purest possibilities of happiness.  After the ceremony an elegant and great supper was served to the guest. The tables groaned with good things and every heart there bore a heavy burden of good wishes to those who furnished them so much pleasure.
No wedding has ever passed more pleasantly, nor were the prospect for contracting parties ever better of fuller of anticipation.  We can assure Ed. And his bride there are many who were friends, not present who have bright hopes for their future.  May their orange blossoms always bloom bright beautiful and fragrant.  May their hopes be fuller in realization than in anticipation,.  May their dreams become realities and may life scatter their path way with flowers that grow sweeter in fragrance and that blushed deeper in ripeness as time bears them along their restless current. -- The Adrian Journal, January 8, 1892, Page 1 column 4-5, Marriage

Copeland, Clyde
Ritchie, Fred
Morrill, Ed
Three young men, one hailing from Adrian, Mo. And two from Butler, Mo., met with a distressing accident one miles west of town this morning at 3 o’clock.  The men were stealing a ride into this city on a coal train were hanging on to the side of the cars.  As they past through the iron bridge they were knocked off in one, two, three order, killing two and wounding another.  The young man from Adrian after being struck by the bridge fell under the wheels and was literally ground to pieces.  His shapeless form was found dangling from the bridge timbers this morning while the body of Clyde Copeland of Butler, was found lying at the edge of the water in the creek below.  He was mashed in a horrible manner, one leg being cut off near the thigh and the top of his head caved.  He was conscious only a few minutes after the accident, long enough however to tell his name.  Fred Ritchie, the other young man, was only slightly injured and he left for Butler this morning on the early train.  The bodies of the dead men were brought in this morning by A. D. Prater and Tom Underwood and placed in the baggage room where an inquest was held.  Copeland is breathing at this writing, but Dr. Warden, the company’s physician, says he cannot live.  The news has been telegraphed to Adrian and Butler- Pleasant Hill Gazette.
The person referred to as being from Adrian is supposed to be Ed Morrill as he is the only one missing.  The family have the sympathy of the community in the sad affair which so suddenly ended the life of a son and brother.  This lesson should be a warning to other boys not to hang about moving trains.
Later:  Late reports confirm the rumor that Ed Morrill was the person killed at Pleasant Hill yesterday morning. -- The Adrian Journal, July 22, 1892, Page 8 column 1, Death
