Ruege, Emma (Marriage - 16 May 1912)

A pretty home wedding took place Thursday at 5 o’clock p.m. May 16, 1912, at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Ruege, when their daughter Emma was united in marriage with Mr. Clayton C. Hubbard of Red Cedar, Wis. Rev. Nye officiated, the ring ceremony being used, Rudy Eisentraut being ring bearer. Mendelsohn’s wedding march was played by Miss Elsie Tragsdorf and the bride was given away by her father. The bride wore white silk marquisette over whit mescaline and carried a shower bouquet of lilies of the valley, smilax and ferns. The groom wore the customary black. Mr. Leonard Nyhus of St. Paul attended the groom and Miss Mabel Hubbard, sister of the groom, was bridesmaid. She wore white marquisette and carried pink roses.

The bride was born in the town of Grant, Clark County, attended county schools, graduated from Neillsville High School and became one of our most successful teachers. She is a young lady of real ability and high character. The groom has only incidental acquaintance here, but has made friends and a favorable impression among all whom he has met. For the past five years he has been traveling salesman of the Perfection Tube Co. of Chicago, but is now going in business for himself at Portland, Ore.

After the ceremony a sumptuous supper was served, the table decorations being in pink and white. Many beautiful presents were received.

Early in the evening the young couple left by auto for Thorp. They will visit Red Cedar, Duran and other points and return to Neillsville for a short stay before going west to establish their home. With them will go many good wishes for their prosperity and happiness.
