One of the prettiest weddings of the season was solemnized at the modern home of Ole Baker about six miles east of Clermont, on Wednesday, Jan. 4, 1911. The contracting parties were Amanda, the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Baker, and Bennie T. Erickson. About one hundred guests assembled shortly after noon to witness the ceremony, which was performed by Rev. Bursett of the Clermont Lutheran church. The wedding march was performed by Mrs. L. N. Erickson, promptly at three o'clock. The bridesmaids were Miss Olive Stake, a cousin of the bride, and Miss Emma Erickson, a sister of the groom. The groomsmen were Albert Erickson, a nephew of the groom, and Henry Baker, brother of the bride. A fine wedding supper was served, and piano music furnished entertainment for the guests during the afternoon and evening, rendered by Mrs. L. N. Erickson. Rev. and Mrs. Bursett, and Miss Alma Nelson favored the company with several songs. At midnight a dainty lunch of ice crème, cake and coffee was served, and the company left for their homes at a late hour. The groom is a prosperous young farmer, who counts for his friends all who know him. The bride is much loved for her sunny disposition and amiable ways and is well versed in all the arts which go to make a happy home. The out of town guests were Herbert and Olive Stake, of New Hampton, Ia., cousins of the bride, and Mr. and Mrs. L. N. Erickson, of Lavinia, Montana.
