A marriage peculiar in the length and brevity of the high contracting parties was celebrated in Parkersburg, W. Va., recently. M. V. Collins, forty-six years old, six feet and seven inches in height, was wedded to Miss Martha Farnsworth. The bride is three feet one inch in height—tall enough when standing on a chair to reach her liege lord’s shoulders.
