MILLNERVILLE MENTION: (Special Correspondence)

A large company of relatives gathered at Jefferson Monday morning to witness
the marriage of Leo Mansfield, of Millnerville, and Miss Dena Mellette, of
Jefferson. The bride was beautifully gowned in embroidered white net and
her going away gown was a gray suit, with hat to match. The bride’s sister,
Miss Mary Mellette, was bridesmaid and also wore white. The groom was
supported by his cousin, John DeRocher, of Millnerville. After the
ceremony, a bountiful wedding dinner was served and the happy couple
departed on the afternoon train for a short wedding journey, which will
include Minneapolis, Minn., and Vermillion, S.D. These young people are well
and favorably known in this locality, Mr. Mansfield being the only son of
Mr. and Mrs. Johnny Mansfield and has lived most of his life in this place,
while Miss Dena has kept house for her brothers for several years. Good
wishes and good luck.

Miss Mary Mellette will keep house for her brothers on the farm this summer.

Mr. and Mrs. J. Mansfield, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Beaulieu and Mr. and Mrs.
Henry Beaulieu were at the Mellette-Mansfield wedding Monday.
