This Thursday morning at the pleasant home of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Stemmer, at 9:30 o'clock, occurred the marriage of their daughter, Anna C., to Earle M. Hallett, of Sterling, Ill.
The ceremony was performed by Rev. A. S. Hock, pastor of the Congregational church, and was the ring service. It was witnessed by about forty guests, relatives and intimate friends of the contracting parties. The house was decorated with white and green, ribbons and smilax.
The bride was attired in an imported lace robe over white silk, while the groom wore the usual costume of black.
The bride is one of Elkader's most worthy young ladies, a graduate of our High School and possessed of those accomplishments that will tend to make a home happy for the husband of her choice. For the past few years she has acted as bookkeeper for J. C. Stemmer & Co.
The groom is highly spoken of as an excellent young man. He is a grandson of John E. Corlett and a resident of Sterling, Ill., where, with his father, W. P. Hallett, he is established in the drug business. He is to be congratulated in having won a gracious and charming bride.
After the marriage service a season of congratulations was had, and then an early wedding dinner was served and the bridal party left on the noon train for a trip to Chicago, previous to settling down at their home at Sterling, Ill. They were accompanied to the train by a number of young friends who saw that they received the usual supply of rice and that their baggage was marked and loaded with old slippers and shoes.
Mr. and Mrs. Hallett were the recipients of many valuable and useful presents.
Among the guests present from out of town were Mrs. W. P. Hallett, Sterling, Ill., mother of the groom; Marion Hallett, St. Louis, Mo., sister of the groom; Bernard Ruegnitz, Dubuque; Florence Hall, Rock Island, Ill.; A.C. Bishop and Miss Hichok, of Burlington, Wis.
We extend congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Hallett, may their lives fulfill the bright hopes and promises of their wedding day.
