A Home Wedding

Miss Anne Corkery of Le Mars and Coneron Hugh Short of Sioux Rapids were
united in marriage last evening at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and
Mrs. C.E. Corkery on Fifth street. Relatives of the two families were
present to witness the ceremony, Miss Hattie Perkins, the life long chum of
the bride, being the only other guest. The pretty home was decorated with
flowers for the occasion. Rev. Father Feuerstein of St. Joseph's church
performed the marriage service at nine o'clock, after which congratulations
followed and an elegant wedding supper was served. The bride was married
in her traveling gown, a dark blue tailor made serge with hat to match.

The young people were the recipients of a large number of beautiful and
costly wedding presents. They left on the night train on a wedding trip to
Minneapolis and St. Paul. From there they will go to Sioux Rapids where
the have prepared a cozy home beautifully furnished in which to begin

The bride has lived all her life in LeMars and is deservedly popular by
reason of her pleasant disposition, sunny ways and good qualities of head
and heart. Mr. Short lived here for a number of years before engaging in
business in Sioux Rapids where he is a member of the clothing firm of Short
and Pratt. He is popular in business and social circles.
