The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa Thursday, December 28, 1905
A pretty home wedding occurred on Christmas evening, December 25, 1905, at six o'clock, at the home of the bride's mother, MRS. KATE GLEASON, the contracting parties being MR. ARTHUR DALIN and MISS ANNA LOUISE GLEASON. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Joseph A. Russell in the presence of the relatives and a few intimate friends, the impressive ring service being used. The groom was attended by his brother, DR. C.C. DALIN of Shenandoah, and MISS JOSIE SWIFT acted as bridesmaid. The bride was attired in a dainty gown of white Persian lawn and carried a bouquet of bride's roses. The groom wore the conventional black. The bridesmaid was attired in white mulle. The house was decorated throughout with holly and presented a charming scene. After congratulations had been proffered an elegant two-course supper was served.
The bride was born and reared in Chariton and is one of our most estimable young ladies. She graduated from our public schools in 1898 and for the past four years has been one of the efficient salesladies in McCollough's Store. She is a charming young lady and none know her save to admire her many fine qualities of mind and heart.
The groom is a son of MR. and MRS. C. DALIN and has also resided in the city from childhood. He is at present employed with the C.B. & Q. as passenger brakeman on the south branch. He is a young man of industrious habits and sterling worth and his character is above reproach.
Many beautiful and useful gifts were bestowed upon the worthy couple who for the present will reside with her mother. The Leader joins the many friends of MR. and MRS. DALIN in extending warmest congratulations and trusts that they will have a long and happy wedded life.
The out of town guests at the wedding were Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Dalin of Albia, Dr. C.C. Dalin of Shenandoah, Mrs. G.A. Anderson and son and daughter of Lucas.
