A china shower was given at the home of Mrs. Lora Baldwin in honor of
Miss Lizzie Lancaster last Friday afternoon. On account of the
inclemency of the weather there were only a few ladies present. After
being seated at the table where an elaborate supper was served, Miss
Lancaster was presented with a set of beautiful china cups and saucers
by the young ladies. At a late hour they departed for their homes
declaring Mrs. Baldwin a royal hostess.
Relatives gathered at the beautiful home of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin
Lancaster, June 5, to witness the marriage of their daughter, Elizabeth
Ann, to Alexander H. (sic-R. Alexander) Hawkins. The ceremony was
performed at two o'clock by Rev. R. M. Kiernan of Morningside, Sioux
City. The bride and groom were escorted to the parlor by Miss Martha
Hawkins, a sister of the groom, and Mr. Middleton Lancaster, a brother
of the bride, where they took the vows that made them man and wife. The
bride wore a dress of white persian lawn trimmed with valencienes lace
and carried a beautiful bouquet of pin and white carnations. The
bridesmaid's dress was pink persian lawn trimmed with white lace. The
groom and groomsman wore suits of black. The house was beautifully
decorated with ferns and flowers of the wedding colors. Immediately
after the ceremony a sumptuous dinner was served. Miss Ina Penning
acted as hostess assisted by Sadie Alderson, Maggie and Lillie
Lancaster, cousins of the bride, and Lena Penning. The newly married
couple were the recipients of many beautiful and useful presents. They
left on the nine o'clock train for Struble, Iowa, for Larchwood, N.D.,
where they will visit with Mr. and Mrs. McMullen, relatives of the
groom. They will live on a farm two and a half miles north of Seney
where they will be at home to their many friends after July 1. We
extend our congratulations wishing them joy and happiness in their new
life. The out of town guests present at the wedding were Mr. and Mrs.
Chris Lancaster; Mr. and Mrs. James Lancaster, of Maurice; Mr. and Mrs.
Muxlow, of Merrill; Miss Myrtle Alderson, Earl Morrissey, Mrs. Geo.
Alderson and daughter, Vera, of Elgin, Neb.
