Charles E. Rothlisberger & Lulu A. Kerr
April 4th, a very pretty wedding took place at 12 o'clock at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Kerr, in Illyria township, Fayette county, when their daughter, Lulu A. Kerr, was united in marriage to Charles E. Rothlisberger, in the presence of a large number of relatives. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Roy V. Porter, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church. The bride was charmingly attired in a gown of white, while the groom wore the conventional black.

The bridesmaids, Lydia Kerr and Amy Richards, were gowned in pink and white. Wm. Kerr acted as usher while Walter Rothlisberger was best man.

After the ceremony, congratulations were extended to the young couple and all were then invited into the dining room where was spread a bounteous dinner, such as anyone would like to partake of. The afternoon was pleasantly spent in visiting and having a good time in general.

The happy young couple were the recipients of a large number of very pretty and useful presents.

The bride is both charming and attractive and her loveable disposition has made her many friends. Her occupation has been that of a school teacher for the past four years.

The groom is an energetic and prosperous young man, possessing excellent traits of character , which have won him success. They will go to housekeeping on the farm recently purchased by the groom's father.
