Dorrington, Lillian & Anna (14 Jun 1905)

DOUBLE WEDDING

Wednesday at 10 o'clock a. m. at the residence of W, E. Dorrington, occurred the marriage
of Ed Fisher to Miss Lillian Dorrington , and Harry Ross to Miss Anna Dorrington. One
corner of the spacious sitting room was tastefully arched with white syringa and curtained with
palms and ferns, while a white dove was suspended by elaborate loops of white ribbon.

Here Rev. Ciine , in the presence of about one hundred guests, read the ring service while Mrs. T. J.
Gist played "O Promise Me,” very effectively. Both brides wore beautiful costumes of white crepe and lace and carried shower bouquets of while roses. After congratulations elaborate luncheon was served in courses. Many valuable and useful presents were given the young couples by their friends. Among these were two checks for one hundred and fifty dollars from the brides' Uncle, John W. Dorrington of Yuma, Ariz.


Both young ladies were born and reared in Falls City and have many sincere and lifelong friends here. They are among the most charming and cultured of our town's young women. Miss Lillian has been a successful teacher in the public schools for several years, and Miss Anna was identified with the Falls' City
Telephone Company

Ed Fisher is also a Falls City product. He was one of the young men who went to the front during the Spanish war, and saw active service in the Philippines. He has charge of the Wells-Fargo
Express company’s business and is both industrious and competent. . Harry Ross is a newspaper
man, of Greenwood, Wis. He has made many friends during his visit here and is a young man with a bright future.

The party left on the Burlington for Kansas City. Mr. and Mrs. Fisher will return to this city in a few days, and Mr. and Mrs. Ross will start from there for Greenwood, Wis. to make their future home. A large crowd
was at the depot to start them in the proper manner and many pranks were played.

The Tribune joins many friends in congratulations.
