A Home Wedding

At high noon, Wednesday, occurred the marriage of Miss Bertha Pope to Mr. T. L. Osborn, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Leander Pope, seven and one-half miles southeast of Skidmore.  Rev. J. W. Malotte performed the ceremony in the presence of only a few relatives.  Miss Bertha is an accomplished young lady with hosts of friends.  Her wedding gown was a beautiful cream cashmere, neatly trimmed with black.  After the ceremony, the company went to the dining room where a bountiful dinner was prepared by the parents of the bride.  The groom is a prosperous young farmer of near Battle Creek, Nebraska.  After visiting with relatives and friends for a few weeks, Mr. and Mrs. Osborn will leave for Battle Creek, where they will make their future home, attended by the best wishes of their many friends.  May their days be many and their sorrows, few.  – A Friend.
