A Double Wedding
On Tuesday evening, October 10, a number of friends and relatives assembled at the residence of Mr. John Anderson. The happiest event of the evening was the marriage of Miss Alfareta Anderson to H. M. Duncan, also Mr. Alvin Anderson to Miss Ella Horr. Rev. J. T. Smith of Perry officiating. By the above event, Mr. and Mrs. Anderson part with an excellent daughter, a most estimable son, but in return receive a truly worthy son-in-law. Seldom do we see a double wedding where all parties interested stand upon the highest opinion of everyone. Their future hopes and prospects are bright. We hope all their paths through life may be smooth and that olive branches may spring up about them - their love for each other never grow less. Many useful and valuable presents were made. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson were uniting their endeavors to make everything pleasant. With the assistance of Jenny Lackey, they succeeded admirably. May Hokeland presided at the piano with that grace and dignity which is found in cultured musicians. While not in the least indeed in the happy throng was Rev. Smith, a Christian gentleman in every sense, who's vivacity and good humor, indeed will make him long to remember in this community. While not wishing to digress too much, we must say if we could only keep the Reverend gentleman in our midst, it would be for the benefit of all. The newly married pair left on the midnight train for a high noon trip through Iowa.

Park to witness the marriage of their daughter, Miss Ella to Mr. Geo. W. Lawrence, a rising young lawyer of Galesburg. The guest felt that the union of these two was so fitting that the merry voices in the parlors tastily wreathed with vines and brightened with flowers, made Old Time stop his hand on the dial, till the silvery chorus of the wedding march, played by Miss Jessie Wiley of Troy Grove, told that 7 o'clock had come and turned the eyes to the bridal party entering. Rev. George Woodward of Leavenworth, Kansas and Prof.. McAfee of Park College, Mo., came first and in the order named, Miss Emma Woodward of Leavenworth, bridesmaid and Mr. E. Bancroft of Galesburg, groomsman, the bride's mother with the groom, the bride and her father. Two little pages, Mitchell Monteville of Kansas City, Mo., and Hallie Parsons of Wenona, placed choice flowers at the feet of the bridal pair as they stood beneath the marriage bell of tuberoses and white carnations. Rev. George Woodward who performed the marriage ceremony, assisted by Prof McAfee, has known the bride from infancy to womanhood. He prefaced the ceremony with such tender words as can only fall from the lips of a reverend pastor and loving friend. He alluded to his baptismal of Ella when she took the vows of the church. The bride, dressed in a beautiful white dress trimmed with point lace, orange flowers at the throat and waist, not a piece of jewelry till the wedding ring was placed upon her finger, looked herself, lovely and true and the groom looked worthy of her.
The following morning the pair took the cars for their furnished home with its fires lighted awaiting them in Galesburg. With them into that new home our best wishes go.
