From Monday's Dally.
One of the prettiest weddings of
the fall season occurred Saturday af
ternoon at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Jacob P. Falter on North Third
street, when their daughter. Miss
Elizabeth, was united in marriage
to Dr. Clinton D. Heine, of Hooper
Nebraska. The wedding was very
beautiful in the simplicity and im
pressiveness of the occasion. The
rooms of the charming home were
arranged in a decorative scheme of
yellow and white, the seasonable
ms with their beauty
adding to the settings
of the hanDv event.
Preceeding the wedding ceremony, ' listed in the navy at Omaha and was

the last notes of the melody were
hushed, Mrs. John W. Falter sang
"At Dawning," by Cadman, the ac
companiment being played by Mrs.
George Falter. Following the rendi

automobile Saturday evening for a
short honeymoon and will be at

friends at Hooper, Nebraska.

most talented young ladies and one
whose loss will be deeply felt in the
social circles of the city, where she
has been very popular. Mrs. Heine

Mrs. J. P. Falter and has spent her
girlhood in this community where
she graduated from the Plattsmouth
schools and later from the state uni
versity and has been engaged in
educational work for the past few
years and with the greatest of suc
cess. Mrs. Heine was for four yeans
a teacher in the schools at Hopper,
and it was while teaching there that
the young people met and their ro
mance has developed into the con
summation of the happiness of mar
riage. Dr. Clinton D. Heine is one of
the best known and popular young
men of Hooper, where all are his
friends and he Is held in the highest
respect and esteem by those with
whom he has come into contact. He
is an honor graduate of the Rush
medical college of Chicago, making
a specialty of surgery, and spent a
year in post graduate work. Dr.
Heine was also in the service of his
country during the late war, serving
eighteen months with the army. He
was commissioned as a lieutenant in
the medical corps and while in ser
vice in one of the field hospitals of
the army in France was promoted to
the rank of captain for his splendid
work in the care of the wounded
He returned to the United States the
latter part of July and at once re
sumed the practice of his profession
at his honie in Hooper, where he is
associated with his brother. Dr. W.
Howard Heine, and where they have
a very large practice.
To the young people the best of
wishes of their friends in, this city
will be extended for a long and very
happy journey through life.
The out-of-town guests attending
the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Fred
erick Heine, parents of the groom,
and Misses Lydia, Kdith and Gre.t
cheu Heine, sisters of the groom, of
Omaha, and Mrs. George H. Falter
and children, John, Philip and Sa
