Rev. E. Hallgren, pastor of the Baptist church in Chicago, where this young couple are members, performed the ceremony that made them husband and wife.

The maid of honor was the bride's sister, Miss Etta, the bridesmaids, Alma Edling of Omaha and Lydia Johnson. The groomsmen were Arthur Benson and David Johnson.

After the ceremony congratulations followed, which were of the heartiest, after which an elegant supper was served. The presents were many, valuable and useful ones. The house was profusely decorated with plants and flowers in a very pretty style. At a late hour the guests departed for their home after a most delightful eve and one they will often refer to as a most pleasant event.

Miss Mamie was born and raised in Kiron and has a large number of acquaintances who esteem and respect her. She has won and retains, by her winning disposition and ladylike ways. Her many friends regret that the lucky fellow resides in Chicago as it will take her away from Kiron.

The groom holds a position in the Sears, Roebuck establishment in Chicago and has a home prepared for his bride. Although a perfect stranger here, he left the impression during his short stay of being a gentleman in the fullest sense of the word.

The couple left on Friday for Chicago. We join with the many in wishing them joy and prosperity. The out of town guests were Mrs. C. Edling and daughter of Omaha, Mr. and Mrs. R. M. Johnson of Denison, Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Halberg, Deloit, and Mr. and Mrs. Conrad Lindgren, Ida County.

One hundred guests were invited to the church to witness the ceremony. Exactly at 8 o'clock the full choir sang the bridal chorus from Lohengrin and the groom with the groomsman, his brother, Mr. John Jones, entered from the vestry and awaited the bride at the chancel steps. The two ushers, Mr. George Kern and Mr. Charles Burns, led the was through the center aisle and were followed by the bridesmaid, Miss Grace Blakely, sister of the bride.

Miss Blakely wore a gown of pink silk mouseline de soie and a picture hat of white chiffon. She carried pink carnations. The bride was brought in by her brother, Mr. David Blakely, Jr. She was very lovely in a gown of white Persian mull, ruffled and tucked elaborately and finished with a bertha of point lace, the work of her sister, Miss Elizabeth Blakely. The bridal bouquet was a shower of lilies of the valley, and the toilette was completed with a large white chiffon hat with long white ostrich plumes.

The organist and choirmaster, Mr. E. A. Leo, played softly through the marriage ceremony and in the celebration of the nuptial mass which followed the choir sang Rosewig's mass. In conclusion, Father Gunn made a brief but impressive address, reminding the newly wedded pair of the duties and responsibilities they had just assumed. He also spoke in the highest terms of the bride, commending her fidelity to her church, her parents and her friends. Miss Blakely had been organist of the church for eight years and for the past two years has served as assistant.

A letter from Mr. Jones, pastor in Denison, also gave Father Gunn the assurance that the bride was united to a man of worth and Christian excellence. The wedding breakfast was served at the home of the bride's parents, Shady Brook farm, Otis road, relatives and a few intimate friends being invited. The bride and groom received congratulations under a floral canopy and the house was decorated with roses, peonies and syringa.

The breakfast was served at twelve by the Misses Ann and Rhea McCauley, Nellie Robinson, Nellie Healey. The bride's sister, Mrs. F. H. Cleary, was in charge of the dining room.
