On Tuesday morning, Oct. 12, 1915, occurred a social event of much interest when Miss Rose Holder, one of the popular young daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Ambrose Holder of Ossian was united in marriage with Mr. Win. Burns of Cresco, at St. Francis de Sales Church, Rev. M. J. Thiltgen, officiating.
Miss Olive Holder and Mr. Russell Burns were attendants. Little Miss Dolly Holder was flower girl. The bride wore a gown of white satin charmeuse, wreathe and tulle veil, caught up with rose buds. She carried a shower bouquet of bride's roses. The bridesmaid wore a pink crepe du chine and carried a pink lace basket filled with roses and carnations. The flower girl wore a dainty gown of silk and lace, trimmed with rose buds and carnations, and carried a basket of sunburst roses.
After the ceremony at the church the bridal party, immediate relatives and Fathers Thiltgen and Friedmann of Ossian and Ryan of Lawler went to the home of the bride’s parents where a sumptuous three-course dinner was served.
Miss Holder is a rare type of womanhood, not only being popular in social circles and with friends, but is possessed with a goodly share of common sense and sound judgment. Mr. Burns is a splendid young man, exceedingly popular and possessed with good business ability. He is owner of a fine farm one mile south of Cresco, where they will reside after their return from a brief visit with friends at Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Anamosa. — Ossian Bee.
