Georjre Howard and Miss Alice Bessie

Lee, formerly of Rock Island,
was one of the handsomest home wed-
tiog-i that has occurred in Minneapo
lis tturing the year. The happy event
was celebrated at the Lee home in the
Adeline. The house was artistically
decorated with a profusion of palms,
ferns and flowers. A string orches
tra from a pretty corner in the hall,
played the wedding marches and a
delightful program of music during
the congratulations at the close of the
service. Immediately preceding the
ceremony Miss Nellie Judd sang "The
Violet Song" and "Thy Beaming
Eyes Are Paradise," and as the last
notes of the song died away, Rev.
Pleasant Hunter, the officiating cler
gyman, took his place before the bri
dal canopy, the orchestra broke into

the ring marriage service in the pres

the orchestra played in soft strain

in the dining room, which was in red

table was a handsome centerpiece em
broidcrcd in red roses, the work and
gift-of the bride's grandmother, who
is 81 years old. On this handsome
piece of work stood a tall cut glass
vase which held a huge array of long
stemmed American beauty roses
