                                                            A quiet wedding took place on
                                                        Monday, September 22, at 2 p.m.
                                                        at the home of Mr. and Mrs. A.
                                                        Elsner in Greenbush, when their
                                                       daughter, Elizabeth, was united in
                                                       marriage to William F. Kettelhodt.
                                                       Rev. E. Ahl performed the marriage
                                                       ceremony in the presence of the im-
                                                       mediate relatives of the contracting
                                                       parties, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Elsner
                                                       acting as groomsman and brides-
                                                          A pretty gown of lace with trim-
                                                       mings of messaline and crystal beads
                                                       was worn by the bride and she car-
                                                       ried, white roses.  The bridesmaid
                                                       wore a dress of white chiffon and
                                                       carried pink carnations.  The house
                                                       decorations were of ferns and roses.
                                                          A bounteous wedding dinner was
                                                       served after the ceremony and the
                                                       happy couple departed at 4:30 by
                                                       auto for St. Cloud, where they took
                                                       the evening train for the cities to
                                                       spend a few days.
                                                         Both young people are well and
                                                       favorably known in Princeton and
                                                       vicinity and have many friends who
                                                       wish them a long and prosperous life
                                                       together.  They will be at home to
                                                       their friends in Princeton after
                                                       November 1.
