AKRON: (From the Register)
A reception was tendered Mr. and Mrs. R. R. McCorkell at the residence of
Mr. and Mrs. O. F. Haskell last Monday evening from eight to ten o’clock.
About one hundred invited guests wished the newly married pair a happy
journey through life. Geo. Jeffers in a neat and appropriate speech
presented Mr. and Mrs. McCorkell with an elegant upholstered rocking chair
in behalf of those present. They were also the recipients of another
rocking chair by Messrs. O. J. Streator, Geo. Toppings and A. E. Peters.
The Akron Cornet Band was present and rendered several fine selections.
Several instrumental trios by Miss Alice Stoutenburg and Messrs. Herbert
Palm and Will Seeman were rendered and helped to pleasantly while away the
time. Refreshments of ice cream and cake were served. Mr. and Mrs.
McCorkell desire us to express their thanks to the band for its delightful
music and to the many kind friends for their beautiful presents.
