A Rril iant Affair la Wklth BorK
Island Was Intrreared An
The marriage of Charles W.HuU.soa of
H. P. Hull, of this city, at Omaha lau
Wednesday evening, was not ocly an
event in the social world of the Nebras
ka metropolis, but one in which Rock
Island naturally. wa peculiarly and
greatly interested. Hence the followine
account from the society column of the
Sunday Bee will be read with pleasure
by many in Rock Island:
A beautiful, gracious nd very happy
home w edding was that of Mary Taylor
Ludington, daughter of of Dr. and Mrs
Horace Ludington. and Charles Watson
Hull, at the residence of the former,2o0S
Bur: street, Wednesday evening at 6.
For montbs tbis wedding has been the
subject of much discussion in the exclu
sive circles of society, and at one time it
was thought the ceremony would tnke
place in May. but the day. out of defer,
ence to the wishes of the bride's parents,
ws9 postponed until Mr. Hull finally suc
ceeded in having June 10 named.
Miss Ludington is a beautiful young
woman and for several seasons has figur
ed in the doings of the beau monde
which she has graced by qualities of
mind and heart,making her a pronounced
favorite in her set and for that matter in
& 1 the sets which makeup, what the
world calls, fashionable society life.
A!l day Wednesday the girl friends of
the bride-elect, whom she had honored
ith an invitation to participate in the
ceremonies as bridesmaids, labored with
gentle hands and willing hearts to make
the Ludington mansion a bower of beau
ty in keeping with the loveaWe character
of their favired friend While the con
ventional floral decorations were in
charge of a decorator, the dainty touches
and pretty effects were given the rooms
by the young ladies who showed in all
the arrangements of flowers, ferns and
palms, an adaptability quite out of the
common, and it is very much questioned
if a bride ever received the benediction
m so beautifully appointed a room as the
front parlor of the Ludington house on
Not until nearly 5 o'clock was the ar
rangement of the rooms completed to
the satisfaction of the young ladies, but
their efforts were more than compensated
for in the exclamations of the guests as
they razed in wrapt wonderment at the
beautiful effects arranged for the occa
sion . .
The front parlor, in which the cere
mony was performed, was decorated in
white ana green, ropes of smilax being
festooned around the room, depending
from the chandelier and fastened to the
sides of the wide doorway. Palms and
ferns stood in the corners, a very happy
effect being made by the white cloth
which covered the floor. But it was the
deep bay window which attracted most
attention. From top to bottom soft,
sheer cloth was hung completely shutting
out the light, and around the half circle
garlands of white peonies were suspend
ed, which, toning in with the curtain of
smilax depending from the ceiling made
a never to be forgotten picture. At the
base of the improvised altar, palms,
ferns and white roses were arranged,
space being left just large enough in
which the officiating ciergyman could
stand. In front of the altar stood the
priedieu, the back being made high and
posts placed at either end, in which tall
waxen tapers burned . The priedieu was
also in white and trimmed with white
roses, a wreath of roses being hung on
the side upon which the bride kneeled,
broad, white ribbons being placed on the
opposite side for the groom.
The back parlor was decorated in pink,
ferns and palms being placed in the corn
ers while ropes of smi'.ax were festooned
from the chandelier. The dining room
was a gem in its floral arrangement, a
small table being placed in the center,
bread ribbon? of white silk being fast
ened to the chandelier and pinned to the
ends of the table. A white silk cloth
was the only covering in use, a rose bowl
of white roses occupying the center while
candelabra and pink shades gave a touch
of light to the place. The sideboard was
banked with ferns, and peeping through
the green were pink peonies, which made
a very dainty effect. The mantel ia the
room was banked with pink and white
roses, the whole effect being as pretty as
could be posoible.
Promptly at 6 o'clock the wedding
march from "Lohengrin," played by the
mandolin club, announced the approach
of the bridal party. Rev. William Jus
tin Harsha. the officiating clergyman, had
previously taken his position in the deep
bay window, behind the priedieu. The
processional was led by W. J. Latta. of
Chicago, the groom's beBt man, Charles
Wilson, Robert Patrick and Charles How,
who entered from the hallway carrying
broad Bilk ribbons which they suspended
from the doorway to the altar, rnakine
an aisle throufitf which the partv passed.
Following the ushers came Mr. Hull, the
groom, and Mrs. Horace Ludington. the
bride's mother. Then came eight brides
maids, all intimate friends of the bride, in
the following order: Miss Bessie Yates
and Miss McEenna, Miss Tost and Miss
Hoagland.Miss Brown and Miss Balcombe
MisB Tates and Miss Laura Hoagland.
The fair attendants formed an inner line
on the aisle four om either side, and
through this group of pretty girls the
bride, leaning on the arm of her father,
Dr. Horace Ludington, passed. The
bridge presented a charming picture in
her gown of white faille which was res
lieved by an over-dress of chiffon, the
skirt and waist being trimmed with
dutchesB lace. The tulle veil was fast
ened with a marguerite of pearls and dia
monds, while at her throat she wore a
four-leaved clover of white enamel, the
points being accentuated by emeralds
and diamonds, a gift of the groom. In
her hand she carried a beautiful bouquet
of lilies of the valley.
Miss Bessie Tates was costumed in a
white flowered silk gauze, trimmed with
ostrich feathers about the neck and wore
an airgrette of feathers in the hair. She
carried a bouquet of white roses, the
groom presenting tbe flowers to the bridesmaids.

who, if the legend be trae. will be the

the cke were hastily hidden from sijrht
an'i the name? of tne recipients could not
be lesreei. At S o'clock tbe bride left
'be room to chunge ber wedding cown
for her ' to away" costume, which" whs
of a dark blue camel's hair, tne toque
corresponding in color to the gawa. Hir
bouquet, wnich she threw from the stair
way, was received by Mies Hoagland.
When the bride and groans left for
their train they were compelled to pass
through a line of guests reaching to their
carriage aDd haniifuls of rice and old
shoes followed them until the doer of the
carriage shut them from the friendly
fusillade. They left on the 9. 3 J train for
Fortress Monroe, where a portion of the
honeymoon will te passed and later they
will be tbe guests of Colonel and Mrs. .M.
