Friday, July 7, 1905


On Wednesday of this week at high noon, the nuptial ceremony was performed which joined in marriage Miss Catherine Cowing, one of Jackson's fairest daughters, to Mr. Malcolm T. Weikle, of Marshall, Minn. The ceremony took place at the elegant home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Cowing, of this city, in the presence of the members of the contracting parties, Rev. H.G. Cheadle, of Blue Earth, officiating.

The bride was born and brought up in Jackson, and is one of our brightest and most accomplished young ladies, and possesses a charm of manner and is endowed with traits of character which have endeared her to a host of friends who regret to lose her from the social circles of our city.

Mr. Weikle, who has won the heart and hand of this fair daughter of Jackson, is a comparative stranger in our city, but we have reliable information that he is a gentleman of high character and standing in his home town, where he holds a responsible position in one of the leading banks.

Those in attendance from outside of town were Mrs. Harry Addison, of Marshall, a sister of the groom, and Mr. and Mrs. A.R. Albertus and daughter, Jean, of Worthington, Mrs. Albertus being a sister of the bride.

They left on the afternoon train for their home in Marshall. --Jackson Republic.

W.V. Olin of the Leader Takes Unto Himself a Wife

Wallace V. Olin and Miss Eva Kingsley were married Wednesday morning, June 28, at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. S. Kinglsey, brother of the bride and Miss Ida Glass attended the couple on this happy occasion.

It was a purely home affair, none being present except immediate relatives. At noon all sat down to a table laden with all the solids and delicacies that go to appease the appetite.

Will Higgins drove to Edgerton and brought the happy pair to Lismore where they arrived in the evening.

Mr. Olin is the editor of the Lismore Leader, a young man of hustle, integrity and honor, and altho the writer has known him but a few months it has been long enough to find in him a man among men. The esteem in which he is held by the citizens of Lismore was shown by the reception received upon arrival here. Mr. Olin's class of young ladies which he has been instructing in vocal music greeted them at the hotel, sang several numbers and presented the couple with a fine rocking chair; the band played several pieces, guns and crackers were fired and a general jollification indulged in.

The bride is a social favorite in her home town, and altho we are unacquainted, we know Olin well enough to know that he would take nothing but the best. In the language of Rip Van Winkle, "May they live long and prosper." -- Lismore Leader.

The many friends of Mr. Olin will extend hearty congratulations.


A most beautiful home wedding took place Saturday evening at the home of the groom's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Tuttle, 442 Reed street, when Miss Pearl M. Dean became the bride of Harold S. Tuttle.

The house was artistically decorated, the reception room, where the ceremony took place, was beautiful with greenery and white blossoms, the special feature being an aisle of ferns and palms.

To the strains of the wedding march from "Lohengrin," played by Harris C. Worcester, the bridal party advanced up the aisle of ferns, taking their places by a bank of white blossoms, where the Rev. W.T. Patcheel pronounced the solemn words of the marriage service.

Very fair the young bride looked in her bridal robes of cream silk, and carrying white roses and ferns.

Only relatives witnessed the marriage ceremony, those present being A.E. Tuttle and wife, Miss Hattie Tuttle, Fred Tuttle and wife, Mrs. M.L. Dean, Miss Kittie Dean, H.C. Worcester and wife, E.E. Worcester and wife, Walter and Howard Worcester, H.B. Worcester and wife.

A reception was held at eight o'clock with the Christian Endeavor Society of the Congregational church as the guests.

The bride, an attractive and capable young girl, is the daughter of Mrs. M.L. Dean, and a direct descendant of Miles Standish. About one year ago she came with her mother to San Jose from Los Angeles and has been a student in vocal music at the University of the Pacific.

The groom is the son of A.E. Tuttle, and an '05 graduate of the U of P. He is a bright young man of fine character and excellent prospects, having been elected to the principalship of the commercial college of the U. of P.

Their romance dates back to the days when Miss Dean lived in Worthington, Mr. Tuttle meeting her there. After a short wedding trip, they will make their home in College Park. --From a San Jose paper.

The wedding was attended by about two hundred guests from the country and nearby towns and the presents were too numerous to mention as nearly everything in the line of silver and glassware was seen besides furniture and a large sum of Uncle Sam's currency. The rich farmers with which Indian Lake is blessed again closed their eyes and dug deep in their pocket books to see who could outdo the others in honoring the young couple. Mr. and Mrs. Nystrom had from all appearances spared neither time or money in making the affair one of the most enjoyable that one could ever wish to attend. Flowers, decorations and attractions were perfect in every detail. When the ceremony was over almost a score of waiters were seen moving about the crowd with huge trays of nearly everything in the line of food and it seemed as if it would never stop. It was one of the biggest and most delicious dinners that has ever been our privilege to attend. In the evening a reception was given and a most enjoyable time was had by the young folks after games, music and social conversation, a bounteous supper was served, after which all departed for their homes. Mr. and Mrs. Blixt go at once with the best wishes of prosperity and happiness of their many friends, to housekeeping on Mr. Blixt's farm which is one of the best farms in the county.
