1.  Marriage

A Pretty Home Wedding

A pretty, but quiet home wedding was that of Miss Dena H. McKenzie and Mr. Charles M. Froh, of Frisco, California, was solemnized Wednesday morning at 5 o’clock, at the home of the bride’s mother, Mrs. K. McKnezie, in the presence of a limited number of friends and relatives. Rev. Mr. J. M. Linn performed the ceremony in the most impressive

manner.  The bride looked unusually pretty in a becoming traveling gown of blue taffeta with hat and gloves to match, while the happy bridegroom looked handsome in the conventional black.  After the ceremony a sumptuous repast was served in the dining room, which was handsomely decorated for the occasion.  The young couple were recipients of many handsome presents, many of them coming from California, Indiana, Canada, and other large cities.  Mrs. And Mrs. Froh will be gone about three months on their bridal tour, and on returning will make California their home.

The Caller joins their many friends in wishing the happy pair much joy in the their journey through life.
