Tbe procession is to include, as far as

Tbe picnic grounds where the celebra

acres of ground readily accessible by
street car or other vehicle, being situated
between Fifth and Seventh avenues, and

The Marriage of Frank B. Uphardt and
Mis Frances D. rnst at Graf, Neb.
The Graf (Neb.) Chieftain contains
the following extended account of the
marriaze there on last Thursday of Frank
B Liphardt, of Hillsdale, and Miss
Frances Ernst, of thaf place. Many and j
hearty will be the greetings that attend
tbe couple in their happiness from hosts j
of Rock Island county friends:
The most elaborate wedding that ever
occurred in the county took place at the
residence of Mr. and Mrs. William Ems',
near Gmf Thursday afternoon, August
25th. The preparations were on a scale
of munificence never before attempted in
this community, and the arrangements
hsd been planned with such forethought
and were so perfect in their details that
the whole croarammo passed off in com
plete harmony. - The occasion was the
marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Ernst's eldest
dauehter. Frances D.. to Frank B. Llp-
hardt. of Hillsdale. III. Four hundred
invited guests witnessed the happy con
summation of this courtship. Tne cere
mony took place on the front porch is
full view cf the large assembly of friends.
At 3.30 o'clock Miss Emma Ernst, sister
of the bride, seated herself at the instru
ment and began the soft strains of a
wedding march. A moment later lha
bridal party appeared Andrew Habn
supporting Miss Lillie Corrington, George
Ernst with Miss Grace Mills, of Hillsdale,
111., and lastly the bride and groom who
took position in the center of the group.
The bride was arrayed in a rich costume
of white silk with satin polka dots. On
her head was a wreath of orange bios
sotns confining the folds of a white
crepe bridal veil. She was a vision of
loveliness, and a perceptible murmur of
admiration arose from the audience as it
looked on the attractive scene. The
groom wore the convential black. His
bearing was one of eenlleminly dignity,
as though he was profoundly con
scious of the treasure about to be
intrustedto his keeping. The ceremony
was performed by Rev. Deubler. pastor
of the Lutheran church at Johnson. Tie
preliminary service was spoken in the
German language, but the essential
words which united the twain were in
English. There was an impressive sol
emLity in tl.e scene which was felt by all
the spectators, and it visibly tffected ti e
bride as she received the congratulations
of her parents. Following the cen
mony the guests passed in line before tbe
nely wedded pair, conveying to them
biief words of best wishes. The bridkl
party then repaired to the spacious din
ing hall, erected especially for the occa
sion. and were seated at the head of the
table with their immediate relatives.
Other guests were ushered in until the
tahlea were filled. There were accom
modations for 132 people at one silting
After grace had been said by Rev. Deu
bler the repast commenced. And such
a supper! It can't be described to peo
ple who were not there. There were
piles on piles of the choicest cold meats,
snowy bread, delicious butter, salads,
sauces, pastry, cakes, fruits, nuts, .em
onade, tea, coffee, iced tea, etc., etc. The
table appointments were under the im
mediate supervision of S. J - Pearsall. the
caterer of this city, who also supplied a
large proportion of tbe edibles. Three
times were the tables filled 400 people
partook of Mr. and Mrs. Ernst's hospital
ity, and still there were quantities of vic
tuals left. Those who sat at the tables
will never forget that bountiful supper.
During the afternoon, the Tecumsen
military band, which was present in full
force, gave several concent of their high
grade music. Their efforts were received
with hearty evidences of appreciation . It
was just what was neededj to perfectly
round out the pleasures of the occasion .
At 6 o'clock the large dining hall was
cleared of the tables, the Tecumseh
orchestra took its position and dancing
commenced. Tbe bridal party danced
tbe first set. after which a general invila
tion was extended to all, which was
promptly accepted by the young people
and dancing was the order of amusement
until a late bour. It is impossible to do
justice in a limited space to the hospital
ity which Mr. and Mrs. Ernst extended
to tbe friends who were present to dj
honor at the marriage of their daughter,
but the foregoing is an abridged resume
of the events of the afternoon. The bride
is a young lady who enjoys the highest
respect of a legion oi triends. tbe is
cultivated, amiable, light hearted, full of
womanly grace and beauty, and possess-,
es the qualities of miud and heart i
make her husband's home a happy one.
The groom is a comparative stranger to
most of the people of this community,
but to a few he has been known since
the days of his youth. He comes from
a most excellant family and his appear
ance indicates that he is a worthy son of
a worthy sire. He desires here to ex
press his heartfelt thanks for the kind
ness and uniform courtesy with which be
has been received by the people of this
community. Mr. and Mrs. Liphardt
will at once commence housekeeping on
one of Mr. Ernst's farms.one-half mile east
of the home place. The best wishes of all
their acquaintances go with them, for
they are worthy of all that is desirable in
Uniting the Two Towns.
It is strange that the privilege of unit
ing the two towns of Rock Island and
Moline should be left to a Davenporter,
but such is the fact, and Edwards &
Walsh are the men to whom all praise
should be given. Within a few days
their contract for paving Moline avenue
which unites tbe two cities from limit to
limit will be completed. It will be the
longest stretch ot brick paving in the
country. Moline suggests that the two
cities unite in some celebration of the
event on tbe day when tbe last brick is
