Popular Young People Wedded at Promptly High

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
