thursday, January 22, l903

A beautiful home wedding took place at the home of MR. and MRS. E.W. BOWERMAN near Decatur City, Jan. l8, l903. The contracting parties were MISS EDNA BOWERMAN, eldest daughter of MR. and MRS. E.W. BOWERMAN and MR. JAMES P. MULLIN, of Mankato, Minn. Promptly at l o'clock the bride and groom, preceded by the officiating minister, Rev. E.B. Scroggan, marched under the beautifully decorated wedding arch in the parlor to the strains of a Beethoven march rendered by Mrs. Rev Scroggan on the piano. After the vows were plighted and the numerous relatives and friends present had congratulated the happy young couple, all repaired to the dining room where a beautifully decorated and ladened banquet table was spread. The afternoon was spent with music of various kinds and conversation. Many beautiful and useful presents were received by the bride and groom as pleasant reminders of the affection and esteem of relatives and friends. The bride and groom will leave in a few days for their future home at Mankato, Minn., where the groom has a good position as a railroad man.
