Elect to Spend the Remainder of Their Days Together

A very quiet but pretty wedding took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C.W. Palmer, of Farwell, on Tuesday noon, when their daughter, Sadie, was united in marriage to Mr. E.E. Buckner.  Only relatives and a few intimate friends were present.

The parlor was beautifully decorated with smilax, ivy and white carnations. 

At the hour appointed the bride and groomed walked in to the strains of the wedding march, played by Miss Ethel Saxton, and took their places under the arch of ivy and flowers.

The bride wore a beautiful costume of white and carried a bouquet of bridal roses and white carnations.

The impressive ring ceremony was performed by Rev. G.W. Maxwell.

After congratulations were extended to the newly wedded pair the guests were served with a delicious wedding dinner.

Mr. and Mrs. Buckner took the afternoon train to Manistee, accompanied by the best wishes of their many friends.

Mrs. Buckner is one of Clare county’s most charming young ladies, and her friends are numbered by the score.  For several years she was a successful teacher in this county, and for the past three years has been assistant postmistress of this place.

Mr. Buckner, during his short residence here, has won many friends, by his pleasant and unassuming manner. 

Among the guests from other points were Mrs. N. Breeze and son, Floyd, of Wauseon, O.; Mrs. W.B. Smith of Durand, and Miss Pansy Kilbourne, of Ashley.
