  • Notes  Married:
    • Last Wednesday evening at the pleasant home of Mr. and Mrs. G. E. Pratt of this city occurred the marriage of their daughter Miss Minnie to Mr. M. M. Lasbury.

      The friends were assembled early in the evening and at 8 o'clock Miss Grassley of Jacksonville, Ill. took her station at the piano and played Lohengrin's wedding march for the bridal party to enter and as the ceremony was taking place the tones of the wedding march ceased and the sweet notes of "O Promise Me" were played soft and low with a harmonizing effect. At the first notes of the wedding march all conversation ceased and all eyes were turned in the direction of the sitting room from the door of which proceeded four little tots, Master Ralph Farrand and Margaret Rodway and Master Baldwin Stead and Alice Parker dressed in pink and white suits looking like four little fairies heralding the coming of the bride and groom. The little escorts led the way through the back parlor into the front parlor and stepping to one side left of the bride and groom standing beneath a lovers knot of white satin trimmed with smilax, where Rev. N.L. Burton was waiting, who in clear tones and impressive manner, conducted the ceremony, using the beautiful ring service which joined together these two lives.

      The decorations were pink and white throughout the house

      After congratulations followed music consisted of vocal and instrumental solos. Excellent refreshments were served and at a late hour guests took their departure, leaving behind numerous useful and beautiful presents that are silent demonstrations of love and esteem of relatives, friends and associates of this worthy couple.

      The bride was gowned in white taffeta silk with an overdress of white organdie and carried Bride's roses.

      Mr. and Mrs. M.M. Lasbury are well known in this county, coming of noble families and worthy in themselves they need no further comment. They will reside in West Quincy avenue where they have a neat little cottage all fitted and will be "at home" to friends after April 1st.

      Those attending from a distance were Miss Grassly, Mr. A.J. Pratt of Jacksonville, Miss Minnie Chamberlain of Pittsfield, Mr. Thomas Lasbury, Jr. of Alton.
