Four States Join in Celebrating the Union
of Hon. Nelson C. Crews and Mar

Beautiful and Costly "Wedding Gifts Showered
on Happy Pair by Masonic Fraternities
and Hosts of Personal Friends.
Unique Features of Bridal March, Handsome Men
and Pretty Women, and Scores of Visitors from
Out of the State Make it Memorable.
By FRBD V.
On Wednesday evening the capital
of the West was at 2024 Highland ave
nue, Kansas City, Mo. Missouri, Kan
sas, Nebraska, Colorado and Iowa rec
ognized Its authority as a seat of gov
ernment and sent as representatives
the best of their sons and daughters.
From G:30 In the evening till well
on toward 11 at night a stream of pe
destrians, carriages and automobiles
kept the scene alive with a- constantly
coming and going throng.
The occasion was the wedding of
Nelson C. Crews, Grand Master of
Missouri Masons, editor of the Kan
sas City Sun, orator and prince of
good fellows, to Miss Margaret Ann
Bass, and the Negroes of five states
In compliment to and out of respect
for the contracting parties contribut
ed by their presence and presents
toward making it one of the grand
est and most notable wedding occa
sions this country has ever seen.
Magnitude and grandeur stood out
on every hand. But with a total ab
sence of ostentatious pretension: It
was the grandeur of simplicity. It
was a good old "homey" gathering
of good old "homey" people giving
outward expression of the inward joy
occasioned by the union of this popu
lar bride and groom. Dame Fashion
and her husband had gowned and
clothed and sent them forth to re
joice for their friend and favorite.
Friends were In charge everywhere
from the first stone step leading to
the entrance to fie gorgecus display
room for the presents at the back of
the second floor, whl-h wus presided
over by Miss Wllla 01. Glenn, busi
ness manager of the Kansas City Sun.
At the door Prof, G. A. Page received
cards and announced the arrival of
guests to C. A. Franklin, who in turn
passed them on to Mrs. W. H. Daw
ley by whom they were ushered to
the dressing room. Then after the
ceremony, when the reception line
was formed, Mrs. Frank A. Harris
ushered the guest to Prof. Wm. H.
Dawley and he to Mrs. Dr. Wm. H.
Peck; and so on through the lines. In
the receiving line were': Mrs. Dr.
Wm. H. Peck, Mr. and Mrs. Henry'
Austin, Mrs. Bass, the brido and
Just in advance of tha bridal party
Dr. Wm. H. Peck entered the parlor
and took his position underneath a
bower of boughs and flowers worked
out in yellow and green, the colors
which prevailed throughout the deco
r rations of the entire house. The
bridal arch was latticed within the
foliage and tiny electric bulbs in yel
low and green tints put forth a bud
dued splendor all around. Suspended
from the center was the bridal bell,
worked out in shades harmonious with
the light effects.
The entrance of little Nazlmona
Austin, representing Cupid with
arched bow and arrow driven by (Mas
ter Albert Austin by reins of long
whito satin ribbon, as Prof. R. G.
Jackson of Western University and
Allen chapel played Mendelsohnn's
wedding march, announced the ap
proach of the bridal party. Little
Willa Pullam, as flower girl preceded
tho bride who entered on the arm of
her brother-in-law, Henry Austin, and
strewed her way with bride's rose
leaves. The groom entered through
tho west door of the parlor and joined
the party in front of the minister,
whtT'o Mr. Austin gave the bride
away. The ceremony used was the
African Methodist Episcopal Church
Following the ceremony the receiv
ing line was formed and the hundreds
of guest? passed down the line and
showered their congratulations upon
tho happy bride ahd groom. After the
line was passed Mesdames Percy
Giass and Howard M. Smith escorted
Ton to the pnnch bowl where a de
lightful non-alcohollo grape' Juice
punch was served by Mesdames Em
ma Payne Lena DeFrantz and Olivia
Page. Mrs. C. A- Franklin then took
you in charge and you wore conduct
ed to the dining room where Mea
dames Nellie Drew, Lena Wilson, Mi
nerva Alexander, Laullne 3. Holbert,
Ik A, McCampbell, Lucy Kingston
McNeal. D. A. Willis, Moore and Ash
craft dispensed refreshments which
had been provided In abundance. At
the conclusion of refreshments each
guest was given a piece of the wed
ding cake, which neatly enfolded In
tissue paper napkins. Miss Charlotte
Williams cut the wedlng cake, which
was made by Mrs. Salllo A. Moore.
The scheme of decorations through
out the entire house was worked out
in flowers, potted plants and fresh
cut green boughs following the gen
eral color plan of yellow and green.
On entering the reception hall one
found oneself under a canopy of fo
liage which sheltered them up the
stairs to the second floor. Along the
balustrade were potted plants and
tastily throughout the 7arlous rooms
flowers enhanced th" beauty of the
scene with their varied and harmon
ious colors, and everywhere was tho
delightfufl fragrance which they shed
upon the air.
While everywhere evidenced the es
teem In which the bride and groom
were held by the people of this sec
tion of the country, the scene which
greeted the eye on entering the room
in which the presents were arranged
was nothing short of marvellous.
Never In the history of Kansas City,
or of the West, and seldom in tho
history of the country, haBi a wedding
brought forth so costly and magnifi
cent a display of presents. Elaborate
sets of silver service, cut glass pieces
of ever conceivable kind, hand em
broidered and drawn worked linen,
hand painted china dinner sets. This
gives but a meager Idea of the va
riety and value of the display. It can
be conservatively said that $2,000 will
not cover the value of the presents
Probably the most costly of all the
gifts were those presented by the
subordinate lodges of Masons of Mis
souri and the Grand Court, Heroines
of Jericho. The former was a 44
plece silver set, consisting of knives,
forks, teaspoons, table spoons, salad
forks, sugar shell and butter knife,
and the latter a four-piece silver tea
service, all of which Were of sterling
Other remembrances from co-workers
,ln (Masonry in various parts of the
country were gifts of silver pieces
from Past Grand Master C. H. M. Col
lins, Kansas; Grand Master John L.
Thompson, Iowa; a 136-plece dinner
set from the officers of the Missouri
Grand Lodge; Grand Master T. S.
Rector, Colorado; Grand Master E.
J. Hawkins, Kansas; Royal Grand
Master Victoria Clay Haley, St. Louis,
Mo, and an electric library lamp
from the exemplary degree team of
Kansas City. The remembrances
from personal friends were no less
elaborate and tho entire colVactlon
constituted a giant testimonial of the
friendship sustained for the bride and
groom In this section of the coun
An unusual feature that was evi
denced In a careful examination of
the gifts was tho universal tasto and
sense of fitness displayed in their se
lection and the astonishing freedom
from repetition. ' The entire collec
tion, taken as a whole, could not have
been bettor chosen had tho task been
assigned to a committee and each in
dividual given the part he was to pro
duce In the finished effect. It was
an evidence of a desire on behalf' of
people everywhere to oxpress their
friendship and good wishes in orig
inal and practical gifts. Among the
most notable of the presents received
from individuals were two oil paint
ings, ono each by R. J. Rice and Wes
ley Bell. Both these offerings were
the handwork of the giver. Tho one
by Rice was a view showing Eagle
Lake off the coast of (Maine, a beau
tiful marine view, and the one by
Bell a beautiful pastoral scene. Dr.
and Mrs. J. D. Ball of Lexington, Mo
sent a massive hammered brass urn;
from Mrs. ;M. Hughes, M. W. Web
ster and C. Schumacho of Troy, Kas
came a large silver serving tray with
the initials of the couple elaborately
engraved In the center. A sterling
stiver sandwich basket, largo enough
to contain sandwiches for quite a par
ty, was the gift of a club of ladies
organized by Mrs. Emma Payne; a
leather pillow cover from J. Rus'
sel, Grand Canyon, Ariz., was a beau
tlful handwork of the Hop! Indians,
who inhabit that section of the coun
try; Chas. D. Fnzler of Grand Can'
yon, Ariz., sent an engraved set of
silver tea spoons; a cut glass fern
dish was, the offering of tho mother
mi rirnhr o' the bride; a carved
Ivory handled carving set by Grand
Secretary George W. K. Love and
wife. So numerous and tasty was the
general run of things that to select
from among tho individual gifts tho
most notable would be a difficult
task Indeed. Past Grand Master A.
R. Chlnn of Glasgow, Mo., and wife;
P. G. L. E. J. Cooper of Mexico, Mo.,
and wife; Mr. Osborne Crews of Chi
cago and wife; the Peck Mite Mission
ary Society of Allen chapel and many
other Individuals and clubs made gifts
that were worthy of special mention.
A unique but highly appreciated gift
was a coop of twelve chickens b Mrs.
Chas. Schumacho and daughter, Mrs.
Nell Howard, of Troy. But to enumer
ate each article of this character
would require a separate descrlpton
of every present given. A detailed
list of the presents and donors will
be found at the end of this article.
