The ceremony occurred at 4:30 p.m. in the spacious parlors of the new and commodious residence of the Ellrods, in the presence only of relatives and a very limited number of invited guests.  Rev. J. W. Jarboe, of Lovewell, Kans., in a brief, but impressive service performed the ceremony, and in this regard he is to be commended on the method he pursues in thee delicate, but important matters.

The bride was dressed in white organdie, tastefully trimmed.  The groom wore the conventional black, and both appeared at their best.  An unusual ornament, to the writer, was a delicate cap of white gauze worn by the bride, following the tenets of the Dunkard church, of which she is a devoted member.

After hearty and sincere congratulations, the wedding party were seated to a supper that did full justice to the cuisine accomplishments of the Ellrod household.  The table was tastefully decorated with flowers and glass, while the menu was unsurpassed.  Rich and toothsome viands of the substantials and delicacies of the season were much appreciated by the guests.  Following the repast a pleasant social hour was spent, when we were compelled to leave the feative scene and the evening's enjoyment following, which gave promise of mirth and pleasure for the number that remained.

The bride is well known to the people of this and Glenwood townships, where the family has resided for several years.  She is a young lady of many virtues and christian graces.  That she will prove a loving and faithful helpmate in all that the words imply is the accepted comment.  The groom is a sturdy, industrious and worthy son of excellent parents, a native of Glenwood township, and a young man of more than ordinary promise.  He is now located at Washington, Kansas, as the traveling representative of the Baker Remedy Co., to which place the newly married couple will remove in a few days to begin a new life.  They will carry with them the best wishes of an admiring circle of friends, who will ever hope for their happiness and prosperity.  Those present from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. John Ernest, of Mankato, Kans., and Mr. and Mrs. C.
