Larson, was married Wednesday evening, Sept. 27, to Mr. John Luther Peters, of Collegeport, Tex. Rev. L. W. A.

Miss Ebba Peters, a sister of the groom, and Miss Signa Anderson, a cousin of the bride, were the bridesmaids and Axel Johnson, cousin of the bride were groomsmen. Miss Grace Selander, of Malmo, Neb., played the wedding march. Mr. and Mrs. Victor Johnson (Mrs. Johnson a sister of the bride) were here from Emerson to attend the wedding. Following the ceremony, and the expression of good wishes, an elaborate wedding supper was served. There were many handsome and useful wedding presents.
