WRIGHT---WAFEL

   Wednesday evening, January 4th, Mr. Hubert B. Wright and Miss Emma Wafel, both of Appleton city, wended their way to the Lutheran parsonage, and having duly presented the marriage license, were united in the holy bonds of matrimony by Rev. Haller. Mr. and Mrs. Wright then enjoyed a sumptuous repast at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Louis Wafel, immediate relatives being present.

   Mr. and Mrs. Wright have their home in Appleton City. The aforementioned fact is the reason why the smile at Mr. Dierfeld’s place is broader, and why one door east, at the G. A. Pratt store, it is a wee bit smaller, the bride having been a popular clerk at the latter place for a number of years.

Mr. Ben Baskerville responded to the toast “Take a Tip From Me.” Mrs. Claude Lampkin read an original poem on “Matrimony” in her usual gracious manner.

   Before the ceremony Miss Laura Henselmann, accompanied by Miss Elsie Smith, very sweetly sang “I Love You Truly,” after which the bridal party made their appearance in the parlor to the strains of the wedding march. Preceding the bridal couple were Miss Florine Goller, sister of the bride, and Mr. Theo. Otto. The bride and groom then entered, taking their places in a bower of ferns and autumn leaves. Rev. Rohlfing very impressively pronounced the words which launched them on life’s voyage together.

   After congratulations the happy couple led the way to the dining room where an elaborate supper was served.

wish them much happiness and success in their journey through life.
