    • A very pretty home wedding took place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. W.K. Rodway on West Quincy Avenue last Thursday afternoon, April 12, the high contracting parties being Miss Emma Lasbury, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Lasbury of this city and Mr. Charles H. McConnell, of Leaman, Ill. The happy twain entered the parlor promptly at 2 o'clock to a wedding march played by Miss Mary Rodway, niece of the bride, which was splendidly rendered. The ceremony was immediately performed by Rev. N. L. Burton of the Congregational Church.

      The bride was dressed in a very pretty spring traveling suit, and the groom in usual style. After congratulations, the guests, of whom there were about forty, partook in an elegant supper in the dining room. The intervening time until the arrival of the 6:13 train was spent pleasantly in music and social converse, when they left for a few days at Decatur and other points before going to their future home at Leaman.

      The bride is a popular and accomplished young lady who has alway moved in Griggsville's best society, and has friends inumerable. The groom is to be congratulated on his selection of a help-mate, and it is believed the bride is equally fortunate. Mr. McConnell is a prominent and industrious young business man of his town and highly spoken of by all who know him.

      The presents were both numerous and valuable.

      Mr. and Mrs. McConnell have the best wishes of all for their future happiness and prosperity.
