A quiet wedding recently occurred at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Maris when their daughter, Miss Rae became the bride of Mr. E. C. Hageman. The ceremony was performed by Reverend J. F. Dennis. After a bounteous wedding supper the couple went to Phillipsburg and from there to Aleman where they were spending the week with a sister of the groom. The bride has for a number of years had full charge of the dry goods, ready-to-wear and millinery departments of the big Maris Department Store, quickly developing into a very capable business woman and being the mainstay of her parents. Her acquaintance over the county is large and she is held in high esteem by many friends and admirers. The groom is a substantial businessman of large experience. For some months he has conducted with singular ability the grocery department of the establishment and on the eve of his union with the gracious daughter of the house, he becomes the owner of this department through purchase. After their short honeymoon, he will take possession of the grocery side, while Mrs. Hageman will continue as the manager of the other side, making a very happy arrangement. Everybody wishes for them a long and happy life under their new conjugal relationship.
