On the 29th of November at three o'clock p. m. at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran church, four miles east of Ireton, Iowa, occurred the marriage of Miss Mathilda C. VanderHamm, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. B. VanderHamm, near Ireton, Iowa, to Mr. Henry J Baack, son of Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Baack, near Struble, Iowa, Rev. C. D. Nuoffer officiating. The bride was attended by Miss Viola Hennrich, of Maurice, Iowa, who wore a pink taffeta dress, and by Miss Millie Kasch of Luverne, Minn., whose dress was of pink crepe do chine, the bride's colors being pink and white. The bride was attired in a beautiful white satin gown trimmed with rich laces and beads, and wore a wreath and veil, carried a bouquet of white bridal roses. The groom wore the conventional blue and was attended by his brother William and by Lorenz VanderHamm, brother of the bride. Leona, sister of the bride, and Esther Winterfeld, cousin of the groom, dressed in white organdy, acted as flower girls. When the bridal procession marched in and took their places before the altar, the twins, Walter and Velda, brother and sister of the bride, sang the "Bridal Chorus" from Lohengrin, which was rendered to perfection, making a deep impression upon the audience. After the marriage ceremony, St. John's choir, of which the bride had been a member, sang the 23d Psalm. Velda played the outgoing march. Pink and white roses and carnations were used for decorations both at the church and the house.

After the ceremony a reception was given at the bride's home, about 150 guests having accepted the invitations. An elaborate supper and a midnight lunch were served. The new couple were the recipients of numerous beautiful and useful presents. Among the guests from abroad were some from Spencer, S. D., Luverne, Minn., Hawarden and Le Mars. After supper five large bands of tin can musicians serenaded the couple. The newlyweds were both born and reared in Sioux county and need no introduction, They will farm on one of the groom's father's farms
