As his friends know, Dr. Sanford Ferris of 312 South Ninth street sailed for Europe this morning. And, as most of them will be surprised to hear, before he sailed he and Miss Clara R. Maguire of 74 Van Ness Place were married.
It was at 8:30 o'clock this morning that Dr. Ferris and his bride, accompanied by witnesses, including Dr. Philip Conlon of 35 James street, entered St. Vincent Ferrer's Roman Catholic Church in New York for a nuptial mass which was performed by Rev. Raymond Meagher, O. P., provincial of the Dominican Order, formerly pastor of St. Antoninus's Church here, and a friend of Dr. Ferris. They obtained their marriage license Wednesday in New York.
The marriage license application stated that the doctor was born in Brooklyn, the son of John F. and Mary Coyle Ferris. His bride was born in the same city. Her parents are Thomas J. and Ellen Hartwell Maguire.
After a reception the couple sailed on the Belgenland of the Red Star Line. They will visit London, Paris, and other cities in Europe. They will make their residence upon their return at the physician's present home.
In the group that attended the ceremony were Monsignor John A. Duffy, vicar general of the Newark Diocese; Monsignor Thomas J. McLaughlin, President of Seton Hall College; Rev. George I. Conlon, prior at St. Antoninus Church; Rev. Martin J. Foley and Rev. William J. O'Leary of the same church; Rev. Thomas McNicholas of the Sacred Heart Church, Jersey City, and other members of the Dominican order stationed in New York.

Robinson Hill, colored, of 332 Mt. Prospect avenue is ina serious condition in the City Hospital as a result of a blow alleged to have been struck last night in Mulberry street near Boudinot street by a man giving the name of Frank Thompson of 228 Harrison street, Harrison. Hill and Joseph Queenan, also colored, of 215 Elwood Avenue, were walking when Thomson came up and engaged them in conversation. Neither of them had ever before seen him. According to Queenan, Thomson suddenly struck Hill on the left temple, throwing him to the ground with such force that he may have a fractured skull.
Hill is a chauffeur for Mrs. William N. Halsey of 353 Mr. Prospect Avenue. Arrested by First Precinct Police, Thompson was held this morning in $2,500 bail for the grand jury. When questioned, Thompson confessed hitting Hill, according to the police, but could give no reason for having done so.
