Ferdinand Enterprise - October 1, 1915

Popular Young People Wedded at Promptly High Noon -


Will Spend Their Honeymoon Here and Be at Home to Friends October Tenth.

At high noon, Thursday, September 30th, 1915, at the home of the bride's sister, Mrs. J.A. Bushue, in this village, occurred the marriage of Miss Emma Gertrude Hussman and Mr. O.E. Havens, the Rev. Father Boniface of the local Catholic church, tieing the knot that linked two hearts for life.  The ring ceremony was used and was very impressive.  Little Leona Hussman, a niece of the bride, being ring bearer.  Mr. Hussman played the wedding march while the couple marched to the place of ceremony. The bride is a very popular young lady of this place and is quite generally known through-out this section of Craig mountain.  She is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B.L. Hussman, of Cottonwood, and has by her winning personality made herself quite a general favorite with all who know her.  She has been the leading saleslady in the J.A. Bushue mercantile establishment for a number of years and is able to count her friends by the score.

The groom, is a son of Mr. and Mrs. John Havens, of Manchester, Iowa, and has been a resident of this community a little over a year, he acting in the capacity of assistant cashier of the Bank of Steunenberg, when he first came.  Since that time he has engaged in business for himself.  He is a young man of exemplary habits, and one of whom we feel proud to enumerate among our rising young business men.

The bride's gown was white, hand-embroidered crepe de chine and shadow lace.  She carried a large shower bouquet of white bridal roses and lily of the valley.  The bridesmaid, Miss Leasel Hussman, sister of the bride, carried a semi-shower of pink roses. 

The groom wore the conventional black.  He was attended by Mr. Ben Hussman, a brother of the bride.  Only the immediate relatives and Barney Litchfield and family of Cottonwood, were present.  Pink and white were the predominating colors used in the decorating, and white and pink asters served as center pieces on the tables.  The bride and groom were the recipients of many beautiful, useful and substantial wedding gifts.

This (Thursday) evening Mr. and Mrs. Havens will entertain their numerous friends by giving a social dance at the Hampshire theater, free, and Friday morning will go to Grangeville to spend the day, returning as far as Cottonwood and remain until Sunday morning, when they expect to arrive home and occupy the rooms in the rear of the Havens store, where they will be at home to their friends on and after October tenth.

The Enterprise joins with the host of friends of the newlyweds in extending bon voyage over life's stormy seas, and wishes them a long, happy and prosperous married life.  

May love's sweet dreams prove ever true., And each day bring more joy to you;  And should you live a hundred years; May not one moment cause you tears.
