Luana wedding, written by H.J. BOWDER.
Wedding occasions are enjoyable. Then neighbors are brought together until the house made roomy is filled. The nature of the occasion adds much. The lights seem brighter and the music richer. All anxiety centers around the appearance of the estimable couple who are so soon to become "husband and wife together". The two appear; the 'knot' is tied; congratulations are given; and then all with so much of god cheer sit together about tables bountifully and tastily spread. Such an occasion was enjoyed Thursday evening, April 14th, at W.W. RUSSELL's of Luana, when his only daughter, Helen M., was led by Delorma F. SAWYER under the green arch where they were joined in marriage by Rev. H.J. BOWDER, of Luana. The bride and groom are followed to their excellent farm home, north of Luana, by the well wishes of their many friends. Among the donors with their gifts are the following:
