Miss Esther Isvik and Dr. Robert C. Crumpton Married at Local Church.

Miss Esther Isvik, daughter or Mr. and Mrs. S.A. Isvik, of Jewell, and Dr. Robert Crumpton, of this city, were married Thursday morning at 8 o'clock at the English Lutheran church, with the Rev. E. A. Piper, pastor, officiating. He was assisted by Dr. Ira J. Houston, of the Congregational church.
The church was filled to capacity with relatives and friends of the couple who are both widely known over the county. Ushers were Marvin Isvik, brother of the bride, and C.F. Richards.

Impressive Service.
The church was beautifully decorated with baskets of cut flowers. Large bouquets of yellow pompoms and white chrysanthemums and baskets of ferns were attractively arranged at the alter and made a beautiful background for the impressive service.
Before the ceremony jack Phillips played a marimba-phone selection, and Miss Alfa Satre, accompanied by Miss Jane Belknap, sang, "O Promise Me" and "I love You Truly."
Miss Belknap played "Bridal Chorus" from "Lohengrin" at the processional, and the bride was preceded by her only attendant, Miss Martha Russell, maid of honor.
The bride entered the church on the arm of her father and met Dr. Crumpton and his attendant, Varick C. Crosley, at the alter where the single ring service was read by the Rev. Piper. Dr Houston led in prayer at the conclusion of the ceremony.
Miss Satre was dressed in [a] black silk crepe frock trimmed in white, and Miss Belknap wore a dress of yellow lace. Both wore pretty shoulder corsages of small pompoms and other tiny flowers.
Miss Russell was dressed in a charming frock of pink crepe and also wore a large white hat. She carried a shower bouquet of Talisman roses and orchid sweet-peas.
