Barnes-PIATT Wedding

A very quiet wedding took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. CARL PIATT of
Shepherd Thursday afternoon, when Mr. Piatt's sister, Miss FLORENCE PIATT , and
Lewis Barnes both of that village, were united in marriage, Rev. C. E. Davis of
the Methodist Episcopal church officiating.

The bride was prettily attired in a dress of white wool and was unattended. Mr.
and Mrs. Barnes left on the afternoon train for a short wedding trip to Detroit.

Both bride and groom are well known and highly respected young people and have
the beat wishes of a wide circle of friends. They will not go to housekeeping
this summer as Mr. Barnes has a job at each Battle Creek and Cadillac, where
he will be employed for several months.
