Short, Mr./Mrs. Ed (Silver - 15 April 1938)

Friday, April 15, marked the 25th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Short of the town of Washburn, and that evening about 75 of their friends, neighbors and relatives gathered at the town hall and gave them a genuine surprise, all arrangements for a silver wedding having been made before Mr. and Mrs. Short were invited to the hall.

The hours were pleasantly spent in singing and visiting, a mock wedding also forming one of the enjoyable features of the evening, and the guests of honor were presented with a collection of silver.

At 11 o’clock a fine plate lunch was served. A beautiful three-layer wedding cake, topped with a silver bell and baked by Mrs. Arthur Short, was placed upon a small table on the stage and at dessert time the "bride" was asked to cut the cake while the "groom" passed it to the guests.

Mr. and Mrs. Short are well known and highly respected citizens. They spent the greater, part of their lives in the town of Washburn, Mrs. Short coming to that community as a small child from Wadena, Minn. Mr. Short was born and reared there. They were married 25 years ago at the James Carter homestead, Rev. Richard Prescott of the Presbyterian church officiating. They have one son, Ernest, who lives at home.

The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Short wish them years of continued happiness and success.
