A DOUBLE WEDDING IN SOUTH ST. LOUIS

VALENTINE STELZER AND HIS

SON CHRISTIAN CELEBRATE THEIR

WEDDING TOGETHER.

It Was The Father’s Sliver Wedding

 and a Happy Time Was Had.

A wedding ceremony a little out of the or-

dinary was celebrated in South St. Louis

yesterday. Christian Steizer of 2620 Arsenal

street and Lena Brandschwede of 1615 South

Broadway were joined in wedlock, and on

the same occasion the silver anniversary of

the marriage of Valentine Stelzer and his

wife, parents of the groom, was celebrated.

The young people were married in the

Church of St. Francis de Sales at Texas

and Cherokee streets at 8 a.m. The old

folks also went through a church ceremony,

the blessings of the church being again

bestowed upon them. John Stelzer, a broth-

er of Christian Stelzer acted as best man

and Anna Drisler as bridesmaid for the

young people. Joseph Abele and Mrs. Al-

bert Reldermelster acted in similar capaci-

ties for the old folks.

A reception was held last night at the

Southwestern Turner hall at Texas and

Cherokee streets. It was largely attended

by the friends of both parties. A number

of handsome presents were received by

both couples. Some of the presents were

from Chicago, where the elder Stelzer lived

before they came to St. Louis.

The occasion was a triple celebration

for Valentine Slelzer. Besides being the sil-

ver anniversary of his wedding, the year is

the twenty-fifth anniversary of his arrival

in this country from Germany; and he has

been 25 years employed by the same firm.

He went to work shortly after his arrival in

this country for Fairbanks & Co in Chicago

 Four years later he was transferred to

the St. Louis branch where he is now em-

ployed.
