Over one hundred guests assembled and at the appointed hour, 8 p.m., while Forester Stanley played the bridal march, the groom slowly entered the wedding room, taking his place in front of a corner very tastefully decorated with palms, ferns and blooming plants. The bride soon followed and took her place by his side. Rev. R. K. Porter, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, in words especially adopted for the occasion, and using the impressive ring service, performed the ceremony that united this young couple for life.
Wishes for much joy to the bride and congratulations to the groom were most hearty. A three course supper prepared under the direction of the brides aunt, Miss Rosella Burmister, formed a pleasing part of the entertainment. The waiters being classmates of the bride.
Numerous valuable, useful, beautiful gifts, consisting of fine china, silverware, table linen, etc. evidenced the esteem in which the bride and groom were held.
