At eight o'clock, the hum of conversation was stilled by the grand strains of Mendleson's, Wedding March, executed by Arthur FOURNIER, and the ribbon bearers, Master Robert ROBLIN and Miss Elisabeth LANGEVIN entered, followed by the sisters of the bride, Misses Gusta and Hattie bearing the flowers and ring, Miss Esther KRAUS as maid of honor, escorted by Samuel WIENBERG as best man, and the brides maids, Miss Margaret FAILING of Grayling and Miss Rae LEVY of Detroit, escorted by the brothers of the bride, Messrs Joseph and Emil KRAUS. The bride and groom were escorted by their parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. KRAUS, and Mr. and Mrs. B. J. WEINBERG, of Saginaw, and given their place beneath a magnificent bell of Ferns, Carnations and Easter Lillies. The room, festooned with smilax, the bride dressed in white Silk Coline and the groom, in the conventional black made a pleasant picture for the expectant throng, as Rabbi Dr. FARBER proceeded with the impressive ring ceremony of the church in which the bride was given away by her father and mother. The hearty congratulations which followed proved the popularity of the bride and the good wishes of our people. The wedding supper was served and enjoyed, for it was elegant in every appointment. The happy pair left on the midnight train for a brief tour and will be "At Home" in Saginaw after October 1st. Among the out of town guest we notice Mr. and Mrs. B. J.
