THE COURIER.
MISS OAKLEY AND MR. CLARK,
Who will be married on Thursday, August twenty-ninth, at Holy Trinity Church.
The wedding next week of Miss Oak
ley and Mr. Clark has been the occasion
of several very pretty luncheons and
dinners this week. Not alone in Lincoln,
the home of the bride-elect, is great in
terest manifested in the approaching
nuptials. In Omaha, where Miss Oak
ley has many friends, and in Chicago,
where she is known in musical and so
cial circles and where Mr. Clark has
Ecored many of bis greatest successes as
a vocalist, the occasion is receiving more
than the usual consideration. The Chi
cago Saturday Evening Herald of last
week contains the following notice:
"CardB were received here this week to
the wedding of Miss Pauline Maude Oak-
'""iay, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Holland
Hector Oakley, 1624 M Street, Lincoln,
Neb., and Mr. Frank King Clark, which
will be solemnized at Holy Trinity
Church, Lincoln, Neb., on Thursday,
August 29 at 8.30 o'clock. The cere
mony will be followed by a large recep
tion at 0 o'clock at the residence of the
bride's parents. The matron of honor
will be a cousin of the bride, Mrs.
Thomas W. Griffith, of Lincoln, Neb.
The bridesmaids will be the Misses Mae
Mount, of Omaha, Marie Hoover. Helen
Nance, and Vine Gahan, of Lincoln.
There will be two flower children, Mis?
Aileen Griffith and Master Oakley Max
well, both of them cousins of the bride.
The beet man will be Mr. James P.
Whedon, of this city, and the ushers will
be Mr. Theodore Peck, New York; Ca
det Owen A. Oakley, U. S. SS. Kear
sarge, a brother of the bride; Mr.
George Shedd, Ashland, Neb , Mr. Rob
ert Joyce, Lincoln, Neb.; Mr. George
Backus and Mr. A- L. Bowman, of Chi
cago. The ceremony will bo performed
by a classmate of Mr. Clark, the Rev. W.
A. Brewer, of San Mateo, Cat., assisted
by the Rev. Robert L. Paddock, of New
York. Mr. Clark's good fortune means
a distinct loss to Chicago, for tho happy
man will take his handsome bride to
Europe, where they expect to remain for
at least three years. They will make
their home in Paris, where Mr. Clark
will perfect himself for grand opera.
Mr. Clark has for several years been a
prominent figure in the social and musi
cal lite of Chicago. He cama here from
Tacoma, Wash., in 1896, and while he
was a comparative stranger here he soon
appeared in concert with the Chicago
Orchestra and laid the foundation for
his future popularity and ere long as a
member of the Kenwood Evangelical
Church he was the highest paid male
singer in the city. Hia voico is an ex
ceptionally rich basso, of unusual flexi
bility, its sympathetic quality being one
of its commending foatures. Several
years ago Mr, Clark established himself
as a teacher of vocal music in Chicago,
and then his farao spread to New Yotk,
where he has repeatedly appeared in
oratorio. Mr. Clark proved himself as
popular socially as he was distinguished
vocally, and for that reason Chicago is
loth to lose him. Miss Oakley, who is a
brunette with a strikingly beautiful faco
and an exquisite figure, is Iikewiso
musically inclined, her mezzo soprano
voice of much charm having often been
beard in this city, where she studied for
some time. She has also studied with
Sbriglia in Paris and Randegger in Lon-
don. A number of Chicagoans will go
to Lincoln to witness the ceremony and
congratulate the young couple in person."

They will go by boat down the west
coast from San Francisco. Mr. Harri
son will do special newspaper and mag
azine work illustrated by photographs
which he will take with an exceptionally
tine photographic outfit with which he
has experimented for several months.
Believing that interesting developments
will take place in Central America dur
ing the coming year, Mr. Harrison
wishes to report them from the scene
of action. His ability as a newspaper
writer is well known in Nebraska. Mrs.
Harrison also has great talent as a writer,
with keen powers of observation and dis
crimination. She was the able repre
sentative of the State Journal in Wash
ington during the last session of con
gress. Mr. and Mrs. Harrison expect to
return to Nebraska before the opening
of the political campaign of 1902.
