A very quiet but pretty wedding took place at the church of Our Lady of Good Counsel in this city on Monday morning when Miss Frances N. Fuchs and Edward L. King too the vows that made them inseparable during life. Father Heelan pronounced the beautiful words and in the neighborhood of thirty relatives and close friends witnessed the ceremony. During the ceremony two solos were sung, one by Lewis O’Donnell and the other by Charles P. Frost, which are very nice and appropriate for the occasion. The bride was accompanied by her cousin, Miss Cecelia Fuchs, and the groom was accompanied by his brother, John King, of Bonaparte, Iowa. The bride was attired in a beautiful traveling suit of smoke grey with hat, gloves and set of furs the same color, while the bridesmaid wore a green suit with trimmings to match. The groom and best man wore the usual black and all looked exceedingly happy as they took part in the functions that meant so much to two of them.
Both parties are well and favorably known to most of our readers and both have scores of friends who will be glad to learn of the important step they have taken. Mrs. King has been raised in this community and as she has grown to womanhood in this locality it is useless for us to dwell on her merits, but suffice to say she is a womanly woman and one that will make a kind and loving helpmate to the man of her choice. Mr. King is very well known in this community, having been engaged in the furniture business with his brother at this place for the past four years, just disposing of their interests recently. Ed is a jolly good fellow and his numerous friends will wish him well in his new undertaking. The young couple will go to housekeeping in the near future on their own farm two and one-half miles northeast of town and will be at home to their many friends after April 15. The Times joins with their many friends in wishing them all the good things that can be obtained in this life.
The happy couple left on the ten o’clock train and will visit at several different points in the state for the next two weeks. — The Fonda Times.
