Miss Nancy Irving and Mr Harley C. Bell are Married at Bride's Home.

A very quiet wedding was solemnized at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W.J.Irving Friday night when their daughter, Miss Nancy, became the bride of Mr. Harley C. Bell. The ceremony was read by the Rev. G.E. MacCanon, minister of the local United Brethren church and the rural Mulberry Center church.

Single Ring Service.
At 6 o'clock the bride and bridegroom took their places unattended and the Rev. MacCanon read the single ring service, in the presence of the immediate relatives.
After congratulations, a two course wedding supper was served by the bride's mother. A color scheme of pink and white was carried out, these being the bride's chosen colors.
Baskets of sweet-peas and maidenhair fern were used as the table decorations with the centerpiece being a lovely wedding cake baked by Mrs. Carl Bell, sister-in-law of the bridegroom.
Mrs. Bell, who looked very charming in a navy blue dress, is the elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W.J. Irving. She was graduated from the Blairsburg high school and also attended Iowa State Teachers college at Cedar Falls.

To Live Near Here.
For the past number of years she has been one of Hamilton county's most successful teachers.
Mr. Bell is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John F. Bell, of Stratford. He attended the rural schools and also the Webster City high school. Since leaving school he has been associated with his father in farming.
After May 12, Mr. and Mrs. Bell will be home to their many friends at a farm southwest of Webster City, which the bridegroom has rented.

Hand dated April 3rd 1936.
