Gilman, Edna (1 NOV 1905)

The world likes to see a good man do a good, wise thing. That is the kind of thing Emil Ketel did yesterday, Wednesday, Nov. 1st, 1905, memorable date, when he married Miss Edna Gilman, at the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Gilman.

The wedding was quiet, with but the relatives and a few chosen friends as witnesses, the house was beautifully decorated with appropriate flowers, and this happy couple have started upon their wedded life under most fortunate circumstances, for Emil has won for a wife a beautiful and accomplished young lady, and she has for a husband a young gentleman in whom every citizen of Neillsville takes pride, for he has fought his way up to a high standing in the commercial world from a humble beginning. He was born and raised here, and whether as a school boy, clerk, baseball player or commercial traveler, he has forged to the front and stayed there; and here he is at the front again with the rarest bride of the season.

In this connection we are permitted to announce that Mr. and Mrs. Ketel go at once to Norfolk, Va., where Mr. Ketel takes change of a butter, cheese and egg business, handling Wisconsin product only. He resigns his work as commercial traveler, and becomes associated with H. B. J. Andrus in an enterprise which is full of promise, indeed the success of which is fully assured.
