At ten o'clock Wednesday morning at the home of Mr. and Mrs. August UECKER, in Elkader, occurred the marriage of their daughter, Jessie M. and Fred Leslie CHASE. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Mr. FRANKE, of the German church in the presence of a large nuber of relatives of the contracting parties. Miss Vina DECKER, a sister of the bride served as bridesmaid while John GREGG of Postville, acted as groomsman. After the ceremony came a season of congradulations and then a sumptous wedding dinnner, the reception being continued during the afternoon. The bride is one of our most worthy young ladies, born and raised in Elkader, and has a large circle of friends who wish her a happy wedded life. The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. W.I. CHASE, of Postville, an active, industrious young man, who has acquired a fine farm at Colton, S.D. where he and his bride will settle down to the realities of life. We extend our hearty congratulations and best wishes. Among the friends present from abroad were Mr. and Mrs. W.I. CHASE, Mr. and Mrs. Henry SCHUETTE, Jr.,Mr. and Mrs. W.C. DRESSER, Mrs. Henry WEBB, John GREGG and Misses Nina, Ama and Ina DRESSER, all of Postvile. Mr. and Mrs. Robert McCREADY of Cherokee Iowa. After a week's visit to the groom's parents and many friends in Postville, Fred and his bride left on the early Wednesday morning train for their home near Colton, followed by the best wishes of all.
