Schnurr – Jankans Nuptials

An Interesting But Quiet Ceremony Takes Place.

Dr. W.G. Jankans and Miss Belle Schnurr United in Marriage on Wednesday Evening.

On Wednesday evening at 8 o’clock, attended by only a few intimate friends of the bride and groom, occurred the marriage of Dr. Wilber G. Jankans and Miss Belle Schnurr of Otho. The ceremony was performed by Rev. C.H. Remington, in the apartments of Mr. and Mrs. S.C. Johnson, in the Oleson block.

After the wedding a supper was served, following which Mr. and Mrs. Jankans left for the Central depot, where they took the midnight train for the east. They will visit various points of interest before returning to the city in about four weeks, among the places to be visited being the doctor’s old home in Virginia.

Both bride and groom are well known in the city.  The bride’s home is in Otho, but for several years she had made her home with her sister, Mrs. S.C. Johnson in this city. Dr. Jankans has been one of the most prominent professional men of the city, having been located here for over twelve years.
