Both the bride and groom are so well known to Waukegan people that introduction is unnecessary. Mr. Wandel has grown to manhood in this city, and his sterling attributes of character, strict attention to business and even courtesy have gained him the warmest friendship of the many who are honored by his acquaintance. Miss Bater's girlhood home was at Millburn, but lately her connection with some of Waukegan's most prominent stores has made this city her home, where her excellent disposition and beautiful attributes have made her a universal favorite.
Mr. and Mrs. Wandel will reside on Hickory street, where Mr. Wandel has a new and modern home prepared for their occupancy. They start upon life's pathway together with the hearty wishes for their happiness and prosperity, that spring from the deep affection in the hearts of their innumerable friends.
