Becker-Franklin Wedding

Miss Ethel Franklin and Mr. John P. E. Becker, members of well known families in Plymouth county, were quietly married at the priest's house of St. Joseph church last Wednesday morning. The wedding was in the nature of a surprise to their relatives and friends who although anticipating the event, did not think it would occur so soon. The bride was attended by Miss Margaret Gorman and the groom by his brother, Henry Becker.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Franklin, of Marion township, and the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Becker, of America township.

The young people left for a visit with friends in South Dakota and on their return will live at the Franklin home this winter and in the spring will go farming on their own account.
