amy, no attompt being made at dis
play. The wedding march was plav
ed by Mrs. Ed. "White, of Kansas City,
who is a particular friend of the
bride. There were no attendants,
save the ushers, Messrs. W. S. "Wells,
Calvin Adkhut, C. P.. Thomas, and W.
V. Peacock. The ceremony was
brier, amVwaa listened to with bated
breath by a church filled with friends.
Tho altar was tastefully and beauti
fully decorated with flowers. The
bride was attired in a neat Gobelin
blue broadcloth, with hat and gloves
en suite. Mr. and Mrs. Thomson took
the S:o9 Missouri Pacific for Sedalia,
whero they-will visit relatives of the
groom, thence pay a visit to Kentucky.
