Miss Josephine Flossie Stowe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rufus Stowe of the town of Beaver, and Frank Wm. Raatz, son of Mrs. Raatz of the town of Green Grove, were united in marriage Wednesday afternoon, August 2, at 4:00 o’clock in the Trinity Lutheran parsonage in Unity, Rev. J. A. Olson reading the marriage ceremony. Mrs. G. E. Scheel was maid of honor and Miss Dorothy Stowe was bridesmaid. The groom was attended by his two brothers, Edward Raatz as best man and Bernard Raatz as groomsman.

The bride was attired in a white satin gown designed with a lace jacket and long fitted sleeves coming to a point over hand. Tiny buttons were down the front and her long heart shaped veil of chantilly lace was arranged in cap effect and trimmed with orange blossoms. Her white silk kerchief was trimmed with rhinestones. Her bouquet consisted of ferns and sweet peas. The maid of honor wore a dress of blue taffeta with white shoulder length veil and her bouquet consisted of ferns and snapdragons. The bridesmaid wore a dress of green taffeta, jacket effect with a green shoulder length veil. Her bouquet consisted of ferns and snapdragons.

A reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents at five o’clock when a dinner was served. The home was decorated with white, pink and blue streamers and cut flowers and two large wedding cakes decorated the bride’s table.
