Kahl, Mary E. (6 SEP 1911)

(Communicated by Rev. J. S. Stamm, Downers Grove, Ill.)

On Wednesday, Sept. the 6, 1911 a large company of relatives and friends gathered to witness the marriage of Miss Mary E. Kahl, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kahl, of Prairie Farm, Wis., to Rev. Walter W. Krueger of Dorchester, Clark County, Wis. The services were held at high noon. Rev. J. S. Stamm, pastor of the First Evangelical Church, Downers Grove, Ill, a college classmate friends of the groom, officiated.

While Miss Lizzie Wirth played a wedding march the young couple, attended by the officiating minister, the bridesmaid, Miss Anna A. Deringer,, and the best man, Arthur F. Krueger of Baraboo, Wis., marched into the parlor. Rev. B. J. Diekvoss, assistant pastor of Prairie Farm Mission and Mrs. F. Jordan, a sister of the bride, sang the duet, "Lead Me." Rev. J. S. Stamm followed with a short address on the subject: "The Happy Home."

This was followed with another song by Rev. Diekvoss and Mrs. Jordan. After this the simple but impressive marriage ceremony of the Evangelical Association was read and the mystic words spoken which made the young couple man and wife.

After hearty and very generous congratulations were extended, the guests were invited to join in the rich repast which had been prepared for this occasion. In this also general interest was manifested. The decorations were very tasty. The afternoon and evening was spent in social intercourse. The music and singing added much to the joy of the occasion.

The bride was dressed in white messaline silk dress princess style, and carried a bouquet of pink and white roses. She was attended by Miss Anna A. Deringer of Prairie Farm. The bride is a young woman of splendid accomplishments and rare abilities. She gave special attention to the study of music. She has also been organist of the Zion Evangelical Church at Prairie Farm for a number of years.

The groom wore a Black Prince Albert. He was attended by his brother, Arthur F. Krueger of Baraboo. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John G. Krueger of Princeton, Wis. After having completed his preliminary education, he attended Northwester College at Naperville, Ill, from which school he graduated with honor in June 1909. For the past two years he served as assistant pastor of Zion Evangelical Church Prairie Farm Mission, making his home in Wheeler during that time. Last May he was given charge of Dorchester Mission at Dorchester, Wis.

Rev. and Mrs. Krueger left Friday for Princeton and Green Lake, Wis., where they will spend several weeks. They will be at home to their friends at Dorchester, Wis. after Oct. 1. All join in wishing them a long, happy and prosperous journey through life.
