Miss Edith Phillips played the wedding march, to the strains of which the bridal party descended the stairway, the ballusters of which were a sold mass of ferns and orange blossoms. Mr. Edward Keuper, brother of the groom-elect, who acted as best man, came first, followed by the groom-elect. Miss Mayme Goslee, the bride's maid, came next, attired in a rich cream mull costume. She carried a large bunch of pink roses. Next came the bride-elect, leaning on her father's arm. She was elegantly attired in white silk mull and carried a large bunch of bride's roses. Miss Nichols and Miss Goslee presented a very pretty appearance. The contracting couple took a position beneath an arch of ferns and orange blossoms and were united in marriage by Elder John Bruce.
Immediately after the ceremony an elegant wedding dinner was served. The dining room was nicely decorated with maiden hair ferns and roses. The decorations of the sitting room were made up of ferns and cut flowers, the decorations throughout being very picturesque.
The newly married couple were the recipients of many handsome presents.
Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Francis Keuper left of the 4:15 train for Chicago. They entered the coach amid a furious storm of rice and wheat. From Chicago they went to Peoria, where they took the steamer down the Mississippi river to St. Louis, where they will make their future home.
