Hotel Lavishly and Superbly Decorated for the Occasion.
Many Guests Present from Various Sections of the State. --Ceremony Elaborate, Impressive and Interesting to All in Attendance.

Lake Park, was the marriage of Miss Anita Collins, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Creed Collins, of Pennsboro, to Mr. Harvey Faris Smith of Clarksburg, which was solemnized on Wednesday evening at 9:30 o'clock. The Inn never looked more attractive with its dainty trimmings of white and green. The very breath of spring seemed to have invaded the whole lower floor and great galleries. The decorations were most elaborate, being one mass of greenery, with huge palms, potted plants and other exotics and with the brilliant electric lights presented a scene long to be remembers by the many guests who were present. The large reception hall was most attractive with its hangings of oriental rugs and large wood fire was gracefully wrapped with garlands. The balustrade of the broad stairway of asparagus vines and ferns, and with the rich glow of the great log fire from the old fire place, and colored lights of the lanterns, formed a pleasing background for the bridal party as it approached the beautiful staircase. Promptly at the appointed our the sweet strains of the Lohengrin's wedding march, two little flower girls, Misses Genevieve Collins and Lillian Woodell, of Pennsboro, who wore dainty frocks of white lace and with great bunches of white organdy elaborately trimmed with white roses, carried the pink ribbons which marked the way to the beautiful arch of smilax, trailing asparagus vines and clusters of white flowers under which the bridal party stood during the ceremony. Following the little maids came the matron of honor, Mrs. Edward Grandson Smith, sister-in-law to the groom, who was beautifully attired in a gown of white voile, made over pink taffeta and embroidered in acorns and oak leaves.

At the conclusion of the ceremony Mendelssohns' wedding march was beautifully played. A delightful reception followed in the large parlors. The whole house was artistically decorated with great banks of green, trailing vines, clusters of daisies and white roses, the color scheme of green and white being carried out in all the decorations with a touch of pink.

Early in his career he became interested in real estate and farming. He started cattle raising as a hobby and it developed in to an important business with him. At his death Mr. Smith owned and operated three farms on Duck Creek near West Milford and another in West Milford section. He had the hobby of studying genealogical records and had spent considerable sums in following his line of endeavor. Atty. Smith for many years had his law practice on Court Street but for the past few years had maintained and office instead at his residence. He was a member of the American Bar Association and for more than 20 years never missed a session of that group. At one time he served a a national committeeman with the Bar Association.
