Reception In livening.
One of the most elaborate social events
of the season and the one in which the
greatest interest has been manifested was
the marriage of Miss Elizabeth Lucille
Elmore to Mr. J. William Reed Wednes
day morning. November 12, 1902, at 10-30,
o'clock. It took place in the Catholic
church, which had been profubely, yet
tastefully, decorated for the occasion. The
aisles and walk leading into the church
were carpeted with white canvas and white
draperies were hung at the back of the
chancel railing. Down the central aisle
loops of while ribbon were festooned from
the top of one pew to the next and a bou
quet of pink and white carnations was se
cured by a knot of the ribbon where the
loops joined. Potted palms and bowls of
chrysanthemums and roses were used ef
fectively about the rostrum and altar and
over the opening at the center of the chan
cel rail a beautiful arch of smilaxnnd ferns
and pink and white carnations and roj.es,
was placed. From it depended a large
bell formed of white carnations and pale
yellow roses. The effect was Very beau
tiful. During the half hour preceding the time
set for the ceremony, those present were
entertained by the rendition of "Love's
Token Marches" by a string quintet led
by Mis3 Lucile Hull, thp other members
of the quintet being Miss Arvilla Snow and
Messrs. F. J. Brennan, J. A. Reardon and
S. Rolfson. As the bridal party entered
the church Mendelsohn's wedding march
was played by Miss Hull and Mr. Rear
don, the latter playing the mandolin and
the former presiding at the organ.
The ushers were Messrs. Will Schlupp,
George Burke and Ed Reardon. Miss May
McDermott and Mr. Reardon led the
party, followed by Miss Elmore and Mr.
Schlupp and Miss Bessie Stewart and Mr.
Burke. Then came the maid of honor, the
bride's sister, Marie, followed by Miss
May Newberry and Michael Elmore, the
former beariug the wedding ring on a
small satin aSdchiffon pillow. Beulah
Smith followed scattering rose petals In
the pathway of the bride, who was es
corted by her brother-in-law, Mr. D. A.
Foley and followed by her mother and sis
ter, Mrs, Foley. A t the altar they were
joined by the bridegroom and his brother,
Charles Reed, and Rev. Father Galvin in
the solemnly impressive service of the
church pronounced the words uniting them
as husband and wife. The ceremony was
celebrated with high mass, the choir being
composed of Mrs. Raymond and Miss Kri
dlebaugh and Messrs. Broome and Haley
with Miss Hobbins playing their accom
paniments. The bride's dress was of white crepe du
chien made over white silk and trimmed
with liberty silk and hand embroidered
roses. The bodice was made with a yoke
of tucked silk and the skirt made entrain
with the flounce and gores joined by fancy
hand worked stitches in white silk. She
wore a handsomely embroidered veil which
enveloped the dress. She carried a shower
bouquet of white roses. Her maid of
honor was gowned in apple green Olga
crepe trimmed with white applique. She
wore a white Hat and carried a mutt ot
pink roses. Miss McDermott wore a white
.crepe batiste dress trimmed with narrow
satin ribbon and the yoke of the bodice
was formed of white applique roses. She
wore a white hat and carried a muff of red
roses as did also Miss Stewart whose gown
was of white Swiss etamine trimmed with
white lace and lace insertion set in medal
lions. Miss Elmore's gown was a pink
silk, the skirt and bodice being made with
yokes of all-over cream lace. The yoke of
the bodice and bottom of the skirt were
outlined with pink roses and the stems and
foliage of the roses were laid on the plaits
of the flounce. Her hat ws of the colors
used in the gown and she carried a muff
of pink roses. All the bridesmaids' dresses
were made with trained skirts. , May New
berry wore a white silk and Beulah Smith
a white organdie, both simply but prettily
made, and they wore no hats.
A sumptnous wedding feast was served
at the home of the bride's parents, just the
bridal party being invited to it. That
evening a reception was given Mr, and
Mrs. Reed at the Business Men's club,
when dancing and all pleasures that attend
upon such an occasion were enjoyed by
about one hundred and fifty guests, excel
lent music being discoursed by Moore's
orchestra. Refreshments of punch and
cakes were nerved. The refreshment booth
was made a bower of beauty by aruamwita
tion with festoons of'smilax and white rib
bon and bunches of pink and white carna
tions. Over one corner of the room an
arch of flower and foliage was placed un
der which the new ly married pair btopd to
greet their friends and receive the con-
gratulations showered upon them. Mr.
Gene Parks received the guests at the door
and Mesdames Reardon and Hillier re
ceived and presented them to Mr. and Mrs.
Reed. They left that night for a short
wedding trip to Denver and Kansas City,
expecting to return about November 25.
Only one thing occurred to mar the
pleasure of the day, that being the absenco
of the brido's father who is in New Mexico
where he is planning the construction of
some of the railroad work and could not
return for tho wedding, but ho wrote them
ho would make up for his absenco by the
checquo he would send in his stead.
Tho bride is tho third daughter of Mr.
and Mrs' Michael Elmore. She has lived
here nearly all her life and the esteem in
which she is held by the many friends who
have known her since childhood, and the
lovable traits, of character that make her
so, are too well known to rcquiro further
statement here. Mr, Reed is a very pop
ular young man and merits the esteem and
confidence he enjoys. Ho is a conductor
on the Burlington running out of Alliance.
These fortunate youug people were favored
by very many rich gifts. Wo cannot give
a list of them but they were certainly a
most beautiful and costly array of remem
brances which they may bo proud of re
ceiving and consider themselves rich in
the friendship that thus displayed itself.
Over forty pieces of cut glass, silver and
hand painted china were among the gifts.
Many beautiful paintings and pictures were
received, also a large number of elegant
pieces of furniture.
After their return they will go to house
keeping in the property second door south
of the Elmore home, where they will bo at
home after November.
