This is an article from a magazine from the early 1900s....

One of the small state papers published an item this week in which was a weird mixup of an account of a wedding and an auction notice.
"William Smith, the only son of Mr. and Mrs. William Smith, and Miss Lucy Anderson, were disposed of at public sale on my farm one mile east, in the presence of seventy guests, including two mules and twelve head of cattle. Rev. Jackson tied the nuptial knot for the parties, averaging 1,250 pounds on the hoof. The beautiful home of the bride was decorated with one sulky rake, one feed grinder, and two sets of work harness, nearly new, and just before the ceremony was pronounced the Mendel & Sons wedding march was rendered by one milk cow, five years old, one Jersey cow, and one sheep, who, carrying a bunch of bridal roses in her hand, was beautiful. She wore one light spring wagon, two crates of apples, three racks of hay, and one grindstone of muslin de soie, trimmed with about one hundred bushels of spuds. The bridal couple left yesterday on an extended trip. Terms spot cash."
