    • A Pretty Wedding

      A pretty wedding took place at 1 o'clock this afternoon at the home of Miss Rose Wheeler on south Fourth street. The home was sweetly decorated in pink and white, honoring the favorite colors of the bride. A canopy of pink and white tissue ribbons and a large white bell was arranged over a bank of palms, baskets of daisies and of hydrangea, where the ceremonies took place. Daisies, beautiful pink begonias and hydrangia decorated other available spaces and the other rooms. The ceremony was performed by Rev. T. F. Carey, which united the lives of Miss Mabel Bruce, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.C. Bruce, who reside below Hanging Rock, and Mr. Walstein Kouns, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Kouns of Sheridan. Immediately after the wedding service, the guests were invited to the dining room, where elegant pink and white brick ice cream, cake and punch was served by the hostess, Miss Wheeler, who was assisted by Mrs. J. J. Brownstead. The bride is a beautiful brunette, and a very lovely character. She was attired in a simple white tucked organdie, which suited her style perfectly. Her going away gown was a handsome dark brown messaline and sergey with hat, gloves and shoes of African brown, making a very pretty costume. A beautiful horseshoe cake graced the center of the dining table which was decorated in the the prevailing shades of pink and white. this cake contained all the traditional god luck articles which later were found by the guests. The groom is a splendid specimen of manhood and holds a respoinsible position in the War Risk Department at Washington, D.C., where they will make their future home, leaving this afternoon for the Capital City. There were present at the wedding Mr. and Mrs. A.C. Bruce and daughters, Alice and Avanelle, and Mr. and Mrs. H. Wayne Bruce and daughter of Hanging Rock, Mr. Ben Kouns and daughters, Mrs. Elizabeth Wakefield, Georgana and Mabel Kouns of Sheridan, Miss Rose Wheeler, Mrs. J. J. Brownstead, Mrs. Carl Ray, Misses Kate Linnerbrink, Emma Bowman, Emma Neekamp and Novena Mahle. Among the many lovely present showered upon the bride was a very handsome chest of flat silver from Ben Kouns and family, and a handsome silver water set. Other pretty gifts were displayed at the bride's apartment on south Fourth street.
