MISS CLARA DUUS WEDS
POPULAR DEPUTY CLERK OF THE COURTS IS MARRIED
HUSBAND IS BANKER AT REMSEN
Event Was Expected But Exact Date Was Kept a Secret—Only Immediate Relatives
Were Present at Ceremony on Saturday Afternoon.
Not every young woman who gets married has the privilege of issuing her own
marriage license, but that was the lot of a popular LeMars girl, who gave
her hand and heart to a well known Remsen banker on Saturday afternoon. The
bride resigned her position as deputy clerk at the court house last month to
make preparations for an important step in life and while engaged in
multifarious duties deftly drew up in compliance with law to present to
those authorized to perform marriage ceremonies.
The announcement of the wedding although the even was known to be imminent
came as a surprise to most of her friends as the exact date was kept a
The wedding was a simple home affair in accordance with the wishes of the
bride and her parents and none but members of the family were present at the
ceremony which took place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Duus, 1422
Madison street, at five o’clock. Rev. C. G. Butler, minister of the First
Presbyterian Church, conducted the service which united in the holy bonds of
matrimony Clarabelle Duus and Marion A. Mieras.
The bride was married in her going away gown, a becoming tailor made tan
whipcord suit with plumed hat and gloves to match.
Following the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. Mieras, accompanied by the bride’s
sister, Miss Esther Duus, and Andrew Scott, of Remsen, boarded the train for
Sioux City and ate their wedding dinner at the West, attending a play at the
New Grand later in the evening.
The bridal couple left for a brief honeymoon which they will spend at St.
Paul and Minneapolis, and will be at home to their friends in Remsen after
The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Duus, pioneer residents of
LeMars, and was reared and educated in this city, graduating from the LeMars
high school. On leaving school she taught in the country schools and for
the past three and a half years has been deputy clerk of the courts, filling
that position with efficiency and gaining a big measure of popularity for
herself. She is a young woman of many accomplishments, versed in the
principles of domestic science and well fitted to preside over a home and
grace it with her presence. In addition, she is a fine musician. The
bridegroom is a member of a well known Sioux county family and by his
individual efforts has already attained several rounds on the ladder of
success and is a progressive and popular business man in the town of Remsen.
He is at present assistant cashier of the German Savings Bank in that city.
