They were unattended. Rev. Isaac Cassel of the Congregational Church performed the ceremony. The bride is an Elkader girl, born and raised here, a student of the Elkader High School and a recent student of the Art Department of the Immaculate Conception Academy of Dubuque, and is an artist of ability. The groom, a jeweler of Windsor, is a stranger, but comes well recommended and has a pleasing personality. The young couple leave Saturday, accompanied by her little daughter, Jamaine Dorcas Henkes, on a trip to Chicago and Indianapolis, before going to their future home at Windsor, Ill., where they will be at home after June 15th.
